Sanusi Lamido: Another Nuhu Ribadu In The Making?

I can't but forsee the future of this new CBN Guv', Mr. Sanusi Lamido. I fear he might end up the Nuhu Ribadu way.

I see in Nigeria a country that does not tolerate openness and fair play, a country where the cabals are ready to deal with you for 'messing' them up.

What do you see? Do you think these rich men will allow this 'boy' to continue to 'ridicule' them?

But I'm too sure Sanusi will not pursue any sectional agenda.

Sanusi used to be number critic of the northern oligarch before his ascension to CBN guvship. SLS is an independent-minded professional and an activist.

be bradminded, do not totally push away what Vanguard newpaper said because they benefit from organizing bankers' awards.

In as much as I try to believe Sanusi's move is to Sanitize the banking industry, a greater part of me thinks this is truly political.

Remember, it was suspected earlier and I hope this does not have anything to do with Islamic banking he has been supporting seriously.

Lets sit back and watch as events unfold. We hope for the best anyway.

Dont be so narrow minded. The fact that vangurad organizes bankers award does not mean whatever they say is a lie. There may be an element of truth in it.

In as much as I am thinking Sanusi's move is to sanitize the Nigerian banking industry, a greater part of me thinks this whole thing is political.

Lets sit back and watch as the drama unfolds. Do not just criticize vanguard for nothing. There is no smoke with a fire and like you read, this whole thing was sensed earlier, even before Sanusi was made CBN governor.

I even heard they are pressing very hard for Islamic banking in Nigeria. Who knows where they are heading?

There is no relationship between the two. The other thieves stole government money, these one stole money which belongs to poor hardworking Nigerians. They have to pay up to the final kobo.

if you need a closer look to establish that 2 people look alike then they don't look alike

they are just both slim and both fulani, thats about it.

the yaradua family and the kano emirate have had business and political ties before even Ibori joined politics

whatever Ibori uses to teleguide Yaradua will not last forever

are u people also aware that this same guy (sanusi) sledge hammer was supposed to hit unity bank but aso rock power play was able to exempt them from the hammer hit.

i learnt ibori is involved in this debt thing and he is ready to repeat what he did to ribadu to sanusi.

take a closer look to both sanusi and ribadu, they look alike and i can say with authority that they both have the same fate.

we just witnessed the end of the beginning of sanusi,

Nigeria needs a corruption czar, Ribadu, Sanusi, whatever name you want to call him. He needs to flush everyone of them out: Igbos, Hausa, Yorubas, Ijaws, Edos, Efiks, Nupes, Tivs, or any other tribe for that matter.

Papa Brown, an objective or consructive opinion of some persons ,when it totally or slightly contrasts with yours doesn't neccessarily imply slowness or what ever you construe that to mean on their part.Rather ,It actually does paint a picture of you as bieng a fixated shallow bigot. You need to be more broad minded than remain within your dark tribal enclosure.

That analysis, coming from Vanguard,I'm not surprised. Is that not the newspaper that organizes BANKERS AWARDS to celebrate these banks and bankers? An attempt to save the irredeemably fallen credibility of their awards, if you ask me. Vanguard my foot.

I do not wish Sanusi to be like Ribadu, I just need him to be an effective CBN Governor.

I love Ribadu and have so much respect for him, I do not fault his job at the EFCC at all and do not subscribe to the argument of selectivity.

But I do not think a CBN Governor necessarily need to be strong headed or be like Ribadu, he just has to be effective.

A CBN Governor amongst all things need to be a pragmatist ready to make some compromises where necessary for the sake of stability of the economy, Naira.

Folks just need to grow up and forget symbolisms, there are a whole host of standards to measure the success or otherwise of the CBN Governor as well the wider economy, the number of Bank MDs you fire is surely not one of them.

Let Sanusi be himself and not like Ribadu. I honestly like what Sanusi is currently doing in the banking system but i hope he is not acting the "northern agenda" as published in Vanguard of 23 March 2009.

You may click on the links below to read the Vanguard stories and let us know what you think.

By the time Sanusi is through with his Northern Agenda and all the banks are filled with Hausa/Fulani secondary school graduates in the name of quota system, you will understand then that there is a difference between Sanusi and Ribadu.

While one(Sanusi) is the son of an Emir of Kano, a custodian of the Northern hegemony, the other(Ribadu) is from far away Adamawa state. If you don't understand the implications, then its because you are naturally slow.

My people there is a difference!! Ribadu is totally different from Sanusi.

Sanusi is the best thing to have happened to this govt. He is bringing live to a passive Yar'adua govt. We only hope he's not meted the Ribadu treatment

Please be well informed before you post.

There is no Emir of Sokoto  BUT SULTAN of Sokoto.

Lamido sanusi is the son of the late Emir of Kano. most cities in Northern Nigeria including Ilorin (which geographically is Southern Nigerian) have Emirs except Sokoto (which are Fulani's), kano, kaduna, katsina are all Hausa's, Borno(maidiguri) etc are Kanuri's.

Their commonalities is the islamic religion, even their language is different but Hausa being the dominating tribe has it language as the lingu franca.

We should avoid ingnorance

The traditional ruler are the biggest retailers of the people across all tribes. The Emir of Sokoto will sell Lamido before you say Jack Robinson and Lamido will be on his way on a modern slave ship.

The battle between the Parasitic Elite and the Simple Elite sometimes has Casualities. Just as when 2 opposing army shoot at each other. The elite must be prepared to die for the Green White Green.

you should not fear what the CABAL would do the only thing is that the people will use the same method and you are seeing now in the MEDIA what they doing.

The media battle is to tell you that they have been victimised because of tribe or religion the elite know they will have supporters.

Sanusi doesnt need your prayers, all he needs is for nigerians to stand up whenever the government disagrees with any of his yet to be proven policies.

And which way did Ribadu go?

Lets hope he dosen't go the way Nuhu Ribadu did.

I think there's every need to keep on praying for him and his likes, may be God will hear and answer our prayers for the sake of the next generation.
