The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called on the federal government to sack the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, saying he was never qualified for the office in the first instance, and has shown more than enough incompetence and contempt for the Nigerian people.
Through its President, Abdulwahed Omar, the NLC was responding to a statement by Mr. Sanusi in which he recommended that the government sack 50% of its workforce in order to revive the economy.
“It has become obvious that there are some individuals parading the corridors of power who are not qualified to be anywhere around organizations saddled with the responsibility of developing policies for national development,” NLC said. “Since assumption of office as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, all Sanusi’s major pronouncements have been either directly anti people or ruinous to the Nigerian economy.”
It asserted that the burden of wealth creation in Nigeria, like any other country, has been on workers, while some politicians and economic parasites like Sanusi over consume what the workers sweat to create, and that workers are the key driving force of all economies and only a hollow economist like Sanusi will underplay this.
“The major problems of the Nigerian economy are corruption and lack of good governance, and until we solve these problems our economy will continue in comatose,” the statement continued, pointing out the irony that while President Jonathan is promising to create more jobs, Sanusi is calling for mass sack of civil servants in a country with one of the highest number of unemployed.
