Apparently the last has not been heard of the controversial 100 million Naira donation to Kano State by the CBN on the urging of the equally controversial CBN governor, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the Federal House of Representatives yesterday adopted a motion sponsored by Hon. Uzo Azubuike (PDP/Abia) summoning the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, over the CBN's alleged misuse of public funds through funding of projects and donations to causes outside the core duties of the apex bank.

Nobody Can Intimidate North Over Demand For More Oil Wealth-Governor Babangida Aliyu
Insisting that the North had been short changed with regards to he sharing of the nation's oil wealth, Niger State Governor and Chairman of the Northern Governor's Forum, Babangida Aliyu, has reiterated the North's demand for access to more oil wealth.
In fact Aliyu may have stunned some who heard about his words when he said there could not be peace in Nigeria without justice, apparently referring to the North's desire for more oil wealth. This no doubt will cause people to believe that there may be a connection between the agitation for more funds and the Boko Haram insurgency, particularly as the CBN governor, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, had voiced such sentiments locally and internationally.
