The Rivers State Governor, Mr Chibuike Amaechi has said the suspension of the governor Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Malam Sanusi Lamido, by President Goodluck Jonathan was unconstitutional.
“He (Jonathan) does not have such powers. He knows that nothing will happen that was why he took that action. So, I think the preachers should begin to preach what we called the liberation theology. You (church leaders) are supposed to have more responsibilities to hold government accountable.”
Speaking on Sunday at Christ Church, Port Harcourt. The Governor said the President lacked the powers to suspend a CBN governor.
“You can imagine how President Jonathan announced the sudden removal (suspension) of the CBN Governor.
He urged the church to insist on accountability from the nation’s political leaders, stressing that it was a duty expected from Christians and religious leaders in the country.
