River State: Gov. Amaechi condemns suspension of Sanusi

AmaechiPORT HARCOURT: GOVERNOR Chibuike Amaechi has condemned the suspension of the governor Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN,  Malam Sanusi Lamido, saying that the action was unconstitutional.

Amaechi who spoke Sunday at Christ Church, Port Harcourt said the President lacked the powers to suspend a CBN governor.

“You can imagine how President Jonathan announced the sudden removal (suspension) of the CBN Governor.

He does not have such powers. He knows that nothing will happen that was why he took that action. So, I think the preachers should begin to preach what we called the liberation theology. You (church leaders) are supposed to have more responsibilities to hold government accountable.” Amaechi said

While urging the church to pray against acts of impunity and corruption in the country the governor also lamented the alleged missing 49.8 billion dollars from the federation account.

Continuing he enjoined the church to insist on accountability from the nation’s political leaders, stressing that it was a duty expected from Christians and religious leaders in the country.
