President Jonathan asked CBN Governor Lamido Sanusi to resign?

That is according to a report by Thisday. Find it below...
President Goodluck Jonathan has asked the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, to resign immediately on the grounds that the letter Sanusi wrote to him on the unremitted $49.8 billion oil revenue to the Federation Account, was leaked to former President Olusegun Obasanjo by the CBN governor.
But Sanusi who has denied leaking the letter to anyone, has refused to resign and informed the president during the heated telephone exchange that he could only be removed by two-thirds of the Senate as required by law.
THISDAY learnt that the president had called Sanusi and accused him of leaking the letter to Obasanjo, which enabled the latter to use it as one of many allegations he levelled against Jonathan in his letter titled: “Before It is Too Late”.

The president, who a source in the presidency said was very angry and was not prepared to allow Sanusi to proceed on his terminal leave in March, asked him to tender his resignation before the close of business last Tuesday.

However, Sanusi denied that he had leaked his letter to Obasanjo and made it abundantly clear he would not be forced out, except he is removed by two-thirds of the Senate.
He also told the president that the letter was available in the presidential villa, available in the finance ministry and available in the central bank and wondered how he (Sanusi) could have leaked the letter, which was so widely available, to a former two-term president of Nigeria who has his people all over the place.

Sanusi also expressed his surprise to the president that he was the one being asked to resign instead of the president to ask those responsible for the non-remittance of the funds to resign.

His response, which threw the president aback, degenerated into a heated exchange during which Sanusi told the president that as the federal government’s Chief Economic Adviser, mandatorily required to bring issues of critical economic importance to the attention of the president, he had done a patriotic duty to his country.

“He informed the president that it is necessary to deal with the issues and not the letter that had been leaked since it has since been established that it was not $49.8 billion that had not been remitted to the Federation Account, but $10.8 billion, which was still in dispute and by any stretch of imagination was still a large sum.

“Sanusi felt he was being forced out for doing his patriotic duty to his country by drawing attention to the unaccounted funds. He only has two months to go, so this was a ploy to force him out and destroy his career and reputation.

“He knew this and for this reason, refused to throw in the towel as requested by the president,” a source familiar with the conversation said.
But the president was said to have remained adamant and insisted on the CBN governor’s resignation.

Following the exchange, Sanusi, another source said, briefed his close aides at the CBN and family of what had transpired between himself and the president.
The source said he did it to shield himself from harm, as he felt his life might be in danger for defying the direct order of the president.

When contacted Wednesday on the issue, the president’s Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, did not pick up or return THISDAY’s calls and text messages.

Also, efforts to get Sanusi and the CBN to speak on the matter met a brick wall.

Sanusi had written to the president in September informing him that, among other issues, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) had not remitted $49.8 billion of oil revenue to the Federation Account over a 19-month period.

Although the letter was not made public until December 4, 2013 when it was leaked, Obasanjo referred to it in his letter dated December 2, 2013, to the president, in which the former president also accused Jonathan of being clannish, destroying the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), compiling a political watch-list of 1,000 people and training snipers to target opponents of the administration, among other allegations.

The president had since denied all of Obasanjo's claims in his rebuttal of the former president's letter.
Expectedly, Sanusi’s letter drew the ire of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), which called on the National Assembly to commence impeachment proceedings against the president.

In addition, the Senate directed its Committee on Finance to probe the contents of Sanusi’s letter.

However, Sanusi’s letter was immediately denied by NNPC, which accused the CBN governor of not only playing politics but also of being ignorant of the operations of the oil and gas sector.

Following NNPC’s repeated denials, a joint press conference was convened by the Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala; Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke and Sanusi, during which it was revealed that a reconciliation process was ongoing, and had so far established that it was not $49.8 billion that had not been repatriated to the Federation Account but $10.8 billion.

During the press conference, however, Sanusi attempted to distance himself from the statements made by Okonjo-Iweala and Alison-Madueke, stating that it was $12 billion that had not been remitted by NNPC.

But the finance minister immediately interjected, insisting that it was $10.8 billion that had not been remitted to the Federation Account and was still in dispute.
But it is not clear what would now happen to the CBN governor who has already indicated that he will leave office in March on a three-month terminal leave ahead of the expiration of his tenure in June.

He had earlier written to the president last year that he would not be seeking a second term.
Clearly the Jonathan presidency must be feeling uncomfortable with Sanusi's remaining five months in office in this political season.

As at last night, efforts were being made to reconcile the president and the CBN governor and create an orderly transition at the apex bank so as not to harm growing confidence in the Nigerian economy.

    As usual President Goodluck Jonathan is divert attention from addressing the main issue to Sanusi. GEJ stop this drama, we know the game you're playing, a letter that is lying around for 2 month in Aso rock, CBN and ministry of finance without you addressing, now you are saying it was sanusi that leaked it. Even "IF" it was him, the issue still remain the public fund that was not credited by NNPC which has been confirmed to be $10.8billion, the senate invited NNPC people they never showed up, and our president is also mute on the issue and you think we need a pastor or herbalist to tell us again that Mr president isn't the brain behind the missing fund? Nahhh, we are not a fool, now instead of GEJ to address the issue again he's vexing becuz a letter he failed to address for 2 months got leaked to the public. If what Sanusi said is true then the letter wasn't sent solely to you Mr president, copies of it are everywhere and obasanjo still has loyal servant that will send him a copy so don't accuse sanusi wrongly and even if he did, you can't force him to resign sir. But we nigerian need you to address the issue and stop diverting, address the issue and persecute those involve and make sure the money the credited back to federation account.

    I am highly disappionted on our leaders. I strongly believe that the money is even more than $50 billion. GEJ, has failed us. But base on sentiments, we still praise em. Out of ignorance, we are still reconsidering the idea to vote for him comes 2015. No transparency on his achievement. I can boldly tell ya all that, the issue of the trained snipers are legit. But who are the people sponsoring dem? Ask OBJ. There is a quarter in aso rock called Yellow house. Who are the people living there? Ask GEJ. Who was the passed president that used diz men to run a dirty job! Ask OBJ and GEJ. They are the snipers. ::The Robocop::

    So you can ask Sanusi to step down while Madam Pancake of Aviation continues with her cosmetic surgery on Nigeria's airports?

    I'd very much love to punch Mr president on the face right now. Sanusi had written him since september and he didn't do jack til the letter was made public, and now he's more concerned about who released the letter than he is about adressing the issues raised. This is ridiculous bruh, corruption at its peak!

    That's how you know liars and thieves. They dilly dally and dance around the peripheral matters totally ignoring the central problem. Billions of dollars in oil revenue has been stashed away somewhere and you are droning on about a frivolous politically charged letter and who wrote it or who didn't? Our government is failed and it is very sad. How dare you Jonathan? What a terrible dishonor amongst you thieves! One would suppose that some type of honor should be bestowed amongst yourselves because we know all of you, including the Sanusi man himself is a thief in some way. But is that the issue here? No. Even the other ministers Dieziani and Okonjo-Iweala have agreed there is money missing so the man is not out of line. He is soon to complete his tenure and leave and has agreed not to run a second term but instead you will let petty politics and blind ambition ruin this nation and stop you from making appropriate political decisions? There are big thieves in your temple and you have chosen to strike the messenger and forget the message he brings. What does that say of you? Doesn't that create cause for implicating you as well? What a failed den of thieves! Failed!

However,Sanusi made so much noise on the issue of the missing 48 b dollars,only to eat his own words by making a u-turn to claim only a lesser sum is missing.The MD of NNPC's argument even showed that Sanusi does not know the inner working of the agency. He should resign if he has any honour left in him,unless he want's to be ridiculed out of office.

    Hello Mr. Chief Economic Adviser of the Federal Government of Nigeria, is there any difference between 49 billion and 12 billion which you now claim, if there is, then I put it to you that your lies is tantamount to a fraud of 37 billion. For every wrong doing of a doctor, one person is at risk but for every wrong doing of an economist, millions of people are at risk e.g. Structural Adjustment Program (SAP) and Mr. Sanusi’s Lies. You should have known better before witch-hunting the government and the Nigerian Economy in General.

    1. try and seek people's opinion on net and know of a truth u're surrounded by anti people and cabals
    2. pls be accountable for previous budget before submitting new one.
    3. seek assistance of private investors to build more refineries in Nigeria. it might surprise u that an individual can singlehandedly build one in this country. we can't afford to still be importing fuel when we're the largest producer of crude in Africa.
    pls try and redeem yourself before it's too late
