Rotimi Amaechi, former governor of Rivers state and now minister of transportation, leaked former CBN governor Muhammad Sanusi II’s letter on the “missing billions” in oil revenue.
Sanusi, as central bank governor, had written to former president Goodluck Jonathan in 2013 to raise the alarm over billions of dollars from oil sale not remitted to the federation account.
Sanusi was later suspended as CBN governor but he became emir of Kano while he was in court seeking that his suspension be declared illegal.
The emir of Kano revealed that Jonathan did nothing until former President Olusegun Obasanjo wrote his own letter.
Amaechi on Wednesday night confirmed to TheCable that he was the one that leaked the letter “because the corruption was simply too much”.
