Nigeria: Sack Sanusi Now, NLC Tells FG

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), yesterday called on Federal Government to relieve Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi of his job as he, in their opinion, was not qualified to head any public organisation.

President of the NLC, Comrade Abdulwaheed Omar, while reacting to statement credited to the CBN Governor that 50 percent of the workforce be sacked, said that such comment was contempt of the working people in Nigeria.

It would be recalled that the CBN boss Sanusi Lamido, while speaking at the ongoing capital market retreat in Warri, Delta State, called for the sack of 50 percent of workers in Nigeria because 70 percent of the nation's resources was consumed by them.

Comrade Omar stressed that there were some individuals parading the corridors of power who were not qualified to be anywhere around organisations saddled with the responsibility of developing policies for national development.

He said since assumption of office as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Sanusi's major pronouncements have been either directly anti people or ruinous to the Nigerian economy.

"It is obvious Sanusi was never qualified for the office of CBN governor in the first instance, and he must be asked to leave the office as he has shown more than enough incompetence and contempt for the Nigerian people"

According to the NLC President, the burden of wealth creation in Nigeria, like any other country, has been on workers, while some politicians and economic parasites like Sanusi consume what the workers sweat to create.
