Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Steve Oru, disclosed this at the end of the weekly FEC meeting presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan.
Just over a year ago President Goodluck Jonathan suspended me from my position as governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria after I questioned an estimated $20bn shortfall in oil revenues due to the treasury from the state oil company. As I said then, you can suspend a man, but you cannot suspend the truth. The publication last month of a PwC audit into the “missing billions” brings us a step closer to it.
