Sanusi wears chieftaincy robe to office 4 years ago 1


The Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria, Mallam Lamido Sanusi, on Wednesday caused a stir at the bank’s headquarters in Abuja when he appeared in his traditional chieftaincy attire.

Sanusi, was last Saturday installed as the Dan Majen of Kano by the Emir of Kano Ado Bayero.

The installation came barely a week after the bank lost eight of its top officials in the ill fated Dana plane that crashed on June 3.

Sources at the apex bank told our correspondent on Wednesday night that Sanusi had attended an event in Abuja in the regalia from where he came to the office.

It was gathered that he spent a short time in the office before leaving.

A top official of the CBN, who asked not to be named, confirmed to our correspondent that he appeared in the office in the regalia.

The source told our correspondent that Sanusi was received by top officials of the apex bank upon resumption of work in the regalia.

Members of staff of the bank had since June 3, been mourning the loss of eight of their colleagues who died in the ill-fated Dana flight on their way to Lagos for a course on banking examination.

They are Mr Amiaka Rapheal (Senior Manager), Mrs Antoniah Attuh (Senior Manager); Mr. Bamaiyi Adamu (Senior Supervisor); Mrs Falmata Mohammed (Assistant Director) and Mr. Ibrahim Yusuf (Principal Manager).

Others are Mr. Kim Norris (Special Adviser to the Governor on Banking Supervision), Mr Mutihir (Deputy Manager) and Mr. Samuel Mbong (Senior Manager). Home Page
