"Sacking of Sanusi against the law" - Abike Dabiri-Erewa reacts

House of Reps member and chairman of the House Committee on Diaspora Affairs, Abike Dabiri Erewa, has reacted to Sanusi's sack on Twitter. She says it's irrational and against the law. Is it really against the law?

All this APC house of rep members can say anything to get media attention! Which one is againt the law again? The office of the president appoints the CBN govt and reserves the right to fire him. Though in this case the guy was suspended mumu!

Yes Linda it is totally wrong and against the law. President needs two third of the senate to concur before a CBN governor can be impeached. Oga Jona can't just wake up and ask the CBN governor to step aside. It's totally wrong. As for Sanusi, this is a clear lesson not to bite the finger that fed you. No doubt this is pure politics......If I may ask, Is any of them better? My answer would be NO....They're all the same. We need revolution in this country.

Yes Linda... It is against the law. CBN Governor cannot be sacked without two thirds approval by the Senate. GEJ will argue that he suspended him but by naming his successor, it amounts to a sack. This decision holds no water in a court of law.

The president can't sack the cbn governor without senate approval , i guess that's why he was suspended. Madam should know there's a big difference... of course a replacement can be named because even before the suspension, his term is almost up. so Sarah Alade acts during suspension, and Emefiele takes over upon the expiration of his tenure

Yes, the governor of the central bank can be only be approved and dismissed if two third of the senate votes on either. But technically the president didn't terminate his position, he was "suspended", so "technically" he hasn't broken any laws, but you all know how Nigerian politics works

So you all didn't know that the appointment and dismissal of the post of CBN Governor is the job of the Senate. By legislation, it takes 2/3 of the Senate to sack one from that post. It isn't a Ministerial appointment and GEJ either knows this but decided to play tyranny or he was ill-adviced by his Cassava-Cabinet considering his ever-advancing cluelessness.

A President that sacked an official for leaking several cases of fraud indicting members of his cabinet while protecting the actual criminals.

A President that doesn't even know the rule of Law nor has any regard for the Regulations, his position, the country and the people he was elected to lead.

Nigeria, you deserve the leaders you get!!!

According to the law if he was fired then GEJ broke the law...but he was suspended...which isn't against the law so Mr president still is on point...

Now did u all know that...His grandfather, Muhammed Sanusi who became Emir of Kano in 1953 was deposed in 1963 for profligacy, brazen violation of emirate financial regulations and fiscal policies. He was found guilty of theft and was deposed. That same arrogant, reckless, vocal thuggery blood runs in all of them...

Section 11(2)(f) of the CBN Act states: “A person shall not remain a Governor, Deputy Governor or Director of the Bank if he is removed by the President: Provided that the removal of the Governor shall be supported by two-thirds majority of the Senate praying that he be so removed.” If we respect the law as Nigerians and if he does as a president, we/he will realise that without the approval of 2/3 majority of the senate, it is against the law of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to fire the CBN governor.

Anonymous said...

I totally support Abike. You guys commenting for Abike to shut up have no idea what sacking Sanusi means to the Country. If you don't know, let me break it down. First is a big embarrassment for the country to outside world and it will make Naira to fall. How can you sack a whole CBN Governor that was on official assignment outside the country? The foreign investors will now be afraid to come and invest their Money in the country because of the government instability. Honestly, Sanusi might not be a innocent too but it doesn't matter. This will just confirm someone of the fears I'd foreign investor about Nigeria being a joke government country. We might be a country with a lot of potentials but who cares when there is too much corruption and instability. They should have waited for him to come back from the official assignment before the stupid suspension was given to him. By the way, I'm not sure but I believe is against the law for a president to single handed suspend which means sack the CBN Governor afterall he didn't choose him alone without being confirmed with the house assembly and house of Rep.

While stating reasons and manners in which the CBN Governor is to be removed from office, Section 11(2f) of the CBN Act 2007, says:

“The Governor, Deputy Governor or Director shall cease to hold office in the Bank if he: (a) becomes of unsound mind or, owing to ill health, is incapable of carrying out his duties; (b) is convicted of any criminal offence by a court of competent jurisdiction except for traffic offences or contempt proceedings arising in connection with the execution or intended execution of any power or duty conferred under this Act or the Banks and Other Financial Institutions Act; (c) is guilty of a serious misconduct in relation to his duties under this Act; (d) is disqualified or suspended from practicing his profession in Nigeria by order of a competent authority made in respect of him personally; (e) becomes bankrupt; (f) is removed by the President: Provided that the removal of the Governor shall be supported by two-thirds majority of the Senate praying that he be so removed.”

Our dear president is fast building a reputation for not keeping in strict adherence and conformity with laid down legal procedures for taking certain actions. The position of the law is that the CBN governor can be removed by 2/3 majority of the senate and the president is not solely empowered by law to do so out of his own volition. I must however admit that he seems to have received some smart advise from his psychopatic team because the removal was neither termed as dismissal nor termination,but as suspension. He has already apponted a successor, albeit in an acting capacity,so what he intends to do is to have the sucessor serve as governor in an acting capacity until June,when the original tenure of Sanusi Lamido is supposed to end by effluxion of time. By so doing,he would have succeded in ousting him out of office in the name of suspension without the necesssity of 2/3 majority of the senate. He would then seek to confrm the appointment of the acting governor. Politicking

of the questionable donations to include N4 billion to Bayero University,Kano; N10 billion to Uthman Dan Fodio University,Sokoto; N500 million to the University of Benin,

Not without two thirds of the senates approval, he cannot not solely sack or fire lamido. That said, to suspend someone is not the same as sacking or firing. GEJ just had a play on words with sanusi and Nigeria, and numb skulls like you cant see the difference. But when it comes to chika ike, davido, wizkid baby mama, you guys are quick to make comments. It can be" inferred" that suspension is equal to sacking or firing, but they are not the same technically, although, the end result is the same- you cannot work in full or partial capacity until your case is reviewed and reconsidered. In this case, he is on suspension until further notice, which by my inference will last until sanusi's end of term in June, in which case, it can be said no law was broken. He was only suspended, it just so happens that his suspension lasted until June when his tenure as CBN governor will be over. I will tell Nigerians, this is the oldest trick in the book and anyone that thinks Jonathan is stupid had better rethink, he will outsmart you in every capacity, both good and bad. Nigerians better put their thinking cap on and focus.

Thats a good point. His successor however has to get the vote of the senate. If its anything like the NCAA DG after Demuren was fired, we know this could conveniently take a long time, perhaps until June when Sanusi's tenure as CBN governor will be over in which case, its a case of no harm done, Just an over zealous President. There is no law or crime against an over zealous president.

TBELLZ said...

Hmmmm, naming his sucessor doesn't convert it to sack. GEJ and his cohorts could argue (and rightly) so,that the successor is not a successor properly so called but someone serving in an acting capacity. Remember there shouldn't be a lacuna in office,as it can't be left vacant. Such a position can be convincingly argued in court. That was why I initially said he acted smartly by terming it as 'suspension' cos he would ensure that his successor acts as governor till the end of Sanusi's tenure which is in just a few months. We seem to have forgotten so soon,what he did to ribadu and Justice salami. One was termed as training and the other as suspension and successors were immediately appointed in both instances.Its all dirty politics.

We speak with both sides of our mouth. The facts are clear on the appointment and removal of the CBN governor. He can only be appointed by the president and his removal will be by the president but supported by 2/3 majority of the Senate. However he also stands removed upon gross misconduct and other financial misconduct howbeit with an indictment from a competent Authority i.e court or investigative panel etc, hence his suspension upon conclusion of investigation is not only appropriate but the right thing in this circumstance. And since the office cannot be left in a vacuum there must be someone in acting capacity. For the forwarding of name for replacement it is also appropriate since no time frame is stipulated for anyone to go for screening in as much as he wldnt take office until all matters a trashed out. So what's all the noise about his suspension let him face the panel and if indicted shld face the full wrath of the law.

He can maje a recommendation but senate needs to vote in and approve his appointment before he can serve in fulk capacity. Listen HRM, there is this thing called democracy, and rule of law. Its there for people to follow it, including the president. Your comment here is false reasoning.

Law student? Please give me break. Do yourself a favour, stop abbreviating stupidly or else you'd fry your brain. Very soon you'd be struggling to even spell your own name.

The truth is that Sanusi is about to uncover a scam ( missing NNPC $20 billion)which I think the president himself is a culprit in the matter...JONATHAN IS A VERY CORRUPT MAN. How come fuel subsidy payment of about N600 billion by Yaradua suddenly jumped to N1.4 trillion within 2 yrs of Jonathan's tenure.What could have happened? Did the volume of fuel consumption suddenly increase within 2 yrs?? Hmmmm...the excess I tell you is channeled somewhere...Nigerian youth arise lets overthrow this corrupt politicians killing these nation....These people are not up to 1500 people ooo, holding the remaning over 150 million people to ransome....Lets unite and do something!!!!Aluta Continua Victoria Aceta...

Abike I beg go siddon this nor be time for wearing gold. Brainless woman did the president seek permission from ur useless house before he employed the talkative ? Sanusi should just Suzuki off to Kano. Bye bye.

Sanusi was not sacked.
He was suspended...

Igor said...

He was not sacked,he was only suspended after the Presidency must have discovered financial improprities committed by Lamido.Emefiele's appointment will take effect when Sanusi's tenure expires later in the year.

IT'S TOTALLY AGAINST THE LAW! Then again, do Nigerians know anything about the provisions of their law. NO!

The word is suspend and not sack. There is a big difference between the two and Honourable Abike,the president cannot sack Sanusi but can suspend him to give way for proper investigation into issues bordering on misapprociation of funds at the CBN that he heads. That all. A simple procedure. He will be re-called if he is cleared of any wrong doing after the completion of the investigation

Dirty game! That's Politics! God should deliver us, that's all we need.

Quite Dabiri...
Which law says a grossly earring CBN governor cannot be suspended from office?
There is no law anywhere in the world that says the tenure of a public officer of whatever name or designation enjoys absolute security..
O! his suspension is unlawful because he has been using his office to fund APC, which he recently enriched to the tune of N1 billion, from public coffers for that matter?
Never seen a CBN governor that politicized and desecrated that hallowed office like Sanusi did....
GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH!!!!

olusolape fagbamiye said...

actually the president has the right to suspend whoever he isnt pleased with. he cant sack him thats all and he has arranged it in a way that Sanusi isn't going to come back so good riddance. i dont like Jonathan neither do i like Sanusi so i am not intrigued by the news.

According to the CBN Act of 2007, the removal of the CBN governor by the President is only valid and legal if supported by two-thirds of the Senate.

Abike go and sit down and cover your face.You have lost you credibility ever since you verge into politics.How has you helped Nigeria citizens in the diaspora? Take for an example here in china and you have the gut to challenge GEJ.Your non response to come to our rescue here is because itz predominately lbos.GEJ is doing what we think that is good for the betterment of all Nigerians

Oh so sanusi gave out one billion naira to opposition party to support their campaign and you expect Jonathan to leave him on the seat abi. Until he empty cbn vault to them before we can now clap for him. Jonathan did the right thing. This man is enemy to the ruling party. Sanusi enter keke marwa to Kano bloody traitor.

What is against the Law Abike Dabiri? you being in the house and sharing money is it not against the law?Have you actually being taking note of CBN unguarded statements since he was appointed? Did you remembered all his comments during the 5K issues cos of his selfish gain? Talking as if Nigerians have no say in the affairs that concerns them? Have being listening to his public lectures, is he not meant to be a public servant than politician? have you seen and access his worth before he became the Governor and now? Don,t you see the ways and manners he spends public money? Have you forgotten this same CBN governor has shown that he is above the law, even when he wore his chieftain dress to office? In fact I think the president is too soft that people EVEN you Abike can as well talk to him.How long have you being in the house? Are you the only candidate from Ikorodu? For Nigeria to move forward they should stop attaching every reasonable moves to politics .
