Buhari Says He Will Investigate Sanusi’s Claims About Missing $20 Billion



Buhari 2015 BN 5

President-elect Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday stated that he would look into former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Muhammadu Sanusi‘s claim that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) failed to remit $20 billion oil money to the federation account.

Buhari gave the assurance while receiving a delegation of APC elected officials and supporters from Adamawa at his Abuja campaign office, Punch reports.

“You all remember what the Emir of Kano talked about when he was the governor of the CBN. He said $20bn not N20bn was unaccounted for; they said it was a lie. Instead of investigating it, they sacked him. And God in his infinite mercy made him the Emir of Kano. In any case, that is what he wanted. And since this was documented, our administration will take a look at it,” he said.

    Buhari please talk about your kinsmen killing people of Benue. Isn’t life more important than monies?
    Condemn them outright for 20billion found don’t replace one life lost.

    Find this monies if they are missing and your financiers will recoup their investments on you.

    So please caution ⚠ your kinsmen cos they hear you more than any other.

    Nene thank you. This man does not understand that him and his foot soldiers have killed more than in civil war.

    The money he is looking for is it not for every one including those being killed?

    The fact that somebody even talk about probing anything in Naija is good news enough. Nigeria’s real enemies will post comments here that will castigate anyone who stands against looting. Go on guys, reprimand me as well! But be assured that what Nigeria needs now more than anything else is to stop the looting. Either by hook or by crook, Bùhárí should try and achieve that. Then, you’ll see how all other things will fall in place – education, roads, unemployment, poverty – all problems emanating from a culture of looting. Note I said “culture”. Let this horrible culture stop and you’ll see how Boko Haram and the lot fizzle out! with it

    I hope Buhari will try his best so as to reduce the level of corruption and malfeasance in that country. My cypriot colleague at work googled about Nigeria and was shocked to discover that the country had so much resources and potential yet majority of the citizens live in poverty.

    @somebody, strangely you all believe monies misses only in a Fed Gov and no kobo misses in APC governed areas!

    Medically its called selective blindness! Well-done.
    False alarms raised against Fed Govt benefited APC. No wonder BBOG bring back our girls coordinator has been rewarded. W e are watching.

    Buhari is a hypocrite and sanctimonious. Buhari is self-acclaimed anti-corruption czar yet he served under late Abacha without complaining of corruption. In the same period buhari served as PTF chairman under abacha,Nigeria was named the second most corrupt country in 1996 by transparency international. The most corrupt country in 1997 &third most corrupt country in 1998. Buhari didn’t resign nor protest. He dismissed the T I report with a wave of the hand. Can he do such if such report says Nigeria is the most corrupt country in 2014. I know that Buhari would protest and call president Jonathan Govt names.
    Mallam Sanusi is same as BBOG organiser who removed GEJ but for the fact that he is a monarch,he would have been govt appointment.

      truenigerian you’ve made it a habit to express very cynical, negative and irresponsible comments about your very own country. People like you are just enemies of progress who enjoy the drama of negativity. You are a pessimist and an idle troll who gets your seconds of fame online. You never have anything positive to say about anything or anyone and u never have evidence. Just venom. Such a shame.

      What good have YOU done for your country? You call someone sanctimonious and a hypocrite. How about you? the judge and the juror. Why don’t u for once wish Nigeria well and pray that our leaders succeed? What will someone’s failure benefit you? Please try to be more of a truenigerian by wishing the country well and speaking encouraging words of wisdom.

      How can he not look into $20Billion????? People amaze me honestly. That’s too much money not to investigate. This isn’t a case of being vindictive. I’ll question his integrity if he looks the other way on this particular matter. Jeezzz $20Billion?

    I suggest the President elect shouldn’t distract his government with unnecessary probes less he will be disappointed. Some of this so called missing funds may just be fabrications, he should focust on the 3 basic things: corruption, unemployment and security then probably try to make Nigerians think right by instituting discipline, though 4 yrs wouldn’t be enough for this.

    Too much probing of past administration may be time wasting.
