President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is currently meeting with the 14th Emir of Kano and former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, at the State House.
Sanusi arrived at the Villa a few minutes before 05:00 pm on Thursday, June 15, 2023.
His visit comes barely one week after the President suspended the immediate past Governor of Nigeria’s apex bank, Godwin Emefiele.
The agenda of the meeting is unclear as of press time.
Sanusi served as CBN chief from June 2009 to June 2014 when Emefiele took over from him.
On Friday, the President suspended Emefiele as the apex bank’s chief and directed that the bank’s Deputy Governor of Operations, Folashodun Shonubi, resume office in an acting capacity.
On Saturday, the Department of State Services (DSS) confirmed that Emefiele is in its custody.
