Femi Fani Kayode Lauds Ex CBN Governor, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi

The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi claimed that 20 billion US dollars had gone missing from the coffers of the NNPC. Two weeks later, he was been suspended and relieved of his duties. As a next step, he will probably be subjected to a formal probe and the EFCC will be called in to investigate his tenure of office. Femi Fani Kayode commends his immense courage for speaking out and exposing the monuemental corruption in the government that he once served and that has now decided that they no longer require his services. Kayode is convinced that if you speak truth to power and you take on the system, the system will fight back and they will attempt to destroy you and all that is yours. Yet at the end of the day, the only road that is worth taking is the road of righteousness and truth, and it is the only one that leads to lasting honour and glory.

Sustainable banking in Nigeria: a strategy or a mindset?

In September 2012, the Central Bank of Nigeria launched the Nigerian Sustainable Banking Principles.

Since its launch, there have been a series of initiatives and dynamism towards embedding sustainability in the Nigerian banking sector. However, sustainable banking in Nigeria could be abandoned if it is not pursued by subsequent Central Bank governors. Unfortunately, the Nigerian business environment is particularly characterised by poor governance and weak consumer voice, which will in turn have implications for the success or failure of the longevity of the Nigerian Sustainable Banking Principles.
