Ohanaeze queries CBN’s N100m donation to Boko Haram victims – Vanguard

The pan-Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Saturday, expressed anger over the N100 million donation reportedly made by Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to victims of recent Boko Haram attacks in Kano State.

Some national dailies had reported, yesterday, that CBN governor, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, presented a N100 million cheque to Kano State deputy governor, Dr Abdulahi Umar Ganduje, during a condolence visit to the Kano State Government on Friday.

The reports quoted Sanusi as saying that the donation was part of CBN’s contribution to the state government to alleviate the suffering of direct victims of the violence and their families.

But, reacting to the development, yesterday, National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze, Mr. Ralph Ndigwe, demanded explanation from Sanusi on why CBN had not extended similar gestures to hundreds of Igbo who were victims of violent attacks by Boko Haram in the north.

Ndigwe threatened that Ohanaeze would champion the removal of Sanusi as CBN governor if he fails to explain the rationale behind the donation to Kano victims only.

”We want Sanusi to tell us what CBN has done for hundreds of Igbo who were victims of Boko Haram violent attacks in various parts of the north. If Sanusi fails to give us explanation for CBN’s selective donation of N100 million to victims of Kano attack, we will not hesitate to push for his removal from office as CBN governor”, the Ohanaeze spokesman stated.

He said somebody occupying the exalted position of CBN governor should be a person who lives above parochial inclinations, adding that Sanusi’s donation to Kano victims only shows that he puts sectional interests above national interest even as governor of the apex bank.
