In what looks like a drama today, the governor of Nigeria?s Central Bank has recanted his claim over $48 billion (about N8 trillion) proceeds of oil sales was missing, having not been accounted for by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.
Sanusi made this proclamation at the ongoing review of the relevant accounts between the CBN, the NNPC, and the Ministry of Finance showed that only $12 billion (N1.9 trillion) by the Senate.
The Finance minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and petroleum minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, who oversees the NNPC, were at the meeting.
Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala interjected Mr. Sanusi?s claim of $12 billion, and told the lawmakers the outstanding figure was $10.8 billion.
Even so, she said the sum was not missing and would be accounted for as the meetings are ongoing.
