The Kano State House of Assembly on Wednesday condemned the suspension of the embattled Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, saying the action by President Goodluck Jonathan was unconstitutional.
The Deputy Speaker, Hamisu Ibrahim, and the Majority Leader, Kabiru Alasan Rurum, who spoke to reporters at the Assembly said: “We condemn in totality the suspension of Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as CBN Governor and that the suspension is not in line with the 1999 Constitution, as amended.
“That the suspension is against the provisions of the CBN Act and we commend the stand taken by the House of Representatives and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) over the issue.
“We call on the Senate to reject the suspension as it is unconstitutional.
“That Sanusi deserves to be commended for transforming the banking and economic sector during within his tenure.
“As representatives of the people, our stand reflects their wishes and aspirations and we are solidly behind this great son of Kano, who is the best CBN Governor ever”.
