The governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, addressed staff of the bank in Abuja on Wednesday and told them that in his four and a half years at the bank, he does not think he has done something that he needed to apologise for.
“For the past four and a half years that I’ve been in the bank, I don’t think I’ve done anything to apologise to anyone for; I’m not saying sorry for anything and I don’t see myself saying sorry,” he said.
According to Leadership newspaper, Sanusi also cleared the air on allegation that the Presidency may have forced him to commence pre-retirement leave from April 1, 2014, two months before his tenure is expected to expire.
He said that he is stepping down as CBN governor on June 1, 2014 and is not being forced to embark on a pre-retirement leave as widely reported in the media.
“There is no pre-retirement leave for me, at least I haven’t applied for one, but I will be stepping down by June 1; I always put this nation first,” he reportedly said.
