The former apex bank governor, alleged during a programme entitled ‘How a cancer of corruption steals Nigerian oil, weapons and lives’
aired on The PBS NewsHour, an American daily evening television show, that about $1bn (N197bn) went missing every month under former
President Goodluck Jonathan.
The monarch said many dirty and shocking deals took place under the immediate past Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke, who is currently being investigated in the United Kingdom.
The emir claimed that during Alison-Madueke’s tenure as petroleum minister, people paid as low as $50m for access to crude oil blocs
valued at over $2bn.
But Fani-Kayode, former Director, Media and Publicity, Jonathan Campaign Organisation, said: “When I read this I was left with the
conclusion that this man has gone mad.
“He (Sanusi) should provide the evidence to prove that this allegation that $1 billion dollars was stolen every day by Jonathan or he should
just shut up and hold his peace.”
