The Presidency on Monday refuted reports that it was planning to probe the tenures of Emir of Kano, Dr Muhammadu Sanusi and Prof. Charles Soludo, as Central Bank Governors.
Some reports had said that the Federal Government had concluded plans to probe the two former CBN governors following their recent comments on the state of the nation’s economy.
Soludo and Sanusi had recently made critical statements about the economic policies of the present administration.
But Malam Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, in a tweet, said the presidency was not aware that the Emir and Soludo would be probed for offering suggestions to the president.
“The check I made today indicated that the presidency is unaware of the reported probe of Sarkin Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi 11 and Prof.Soludo
“Where did that report come from? Under our constitution which President Muhammadu Buhari swore to uphold, it is not a crime to offer suggestions”
