Volcano Sanusi Erupts: Ban CAN, JNI, Afenifere, Ohaneze, ACF, Others

SLSGovernor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has called for the proscription of religious associations especially the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI). Sanusi made the call at an inter-faith dinner organized by the Northern Reawakening Forum (NRF) in Abuja, yesterday.
While making the suggestion, Sanusi said, “I almost didn’t want to attend this occasion because I am opposed to regional, ethnic and religious groupings in this country. In fact, I would like the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Jamatul Nasril Islam (JNI) , Afenifere and all such other groups to be banned.”
He justified his call for the ban because the associations were not truly religious or cultural associations but political organisations in the guise of religious organisations.
Sanusi,who is not new to making statements that seem controversial, also accused the elites in Northern Nigeria of using religion as a vehicle for their political contestations. He faulted the process where political leaders deal with leaders of such organisation when the constitution makes it clear that the Federal Government should promote only associations that cut across divides.
Sanusi said people now float all sorts of associations that threaten the security of the country so as to be recognised.

    • don’t be sentimental about this issue. islamic banking is a system of banking adopted by the west who are experiencing melt down. they swallow their pride and gave the divine banking chance but foolish people will not look beyond the name.

  • Insanity! Is he not aware the constitution of the Federal Govt has provided for freedom of these types of associations? I think the right thinkg to do wt this man is to;
    1.releive him of this pretious position he occupies
    2.take him to a good hospital for check up.

  • Sanusi if u dont know what to say pls keep silent, dis same person who was talking of islamic banking now on religeon matters, God ponish devil

  • Nigerian youth! Don’t starts all over again, Understand the two terms of “Peace/Security” and the “Economy” also mark Sanusi words and focus on the term “Only associations that cut Across divides” Then measured it on a scale, what have those Associations contribute to our dare country and the world on one hand and on the Other side what benefits derived from Islamic Banking since inception? Don’t just get blind over one single opinion that does not represent a whole.
