**Seeks Boko Haram Sponsors Among Pastors And Priests
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)have frozen the bank accounts of most churches in Nigeria under the guise of seeking for sponsors of Boko Haram. Many churches have been stranded since the past two weeks due to their inability to withdraw money from most commercial banks due to a CBN directive that they must provide their list of shareholders and directors before they could access their funds. The churches in addition are required to fill forms which will be taken to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)for endorsement before even a kobo will be withdrawn by them.
This stance of the CBN under Sanusi have crippled a lot of church activities within the past two weeks. In Enugu, a cleric who anchors Healing Has Begun crusade, Archbishop A.A Nwodika had course to cancel a crusade because the fund to prosecute it was trapped in banks. In the same note, the preparations for the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) biennial conference in Enugu State billed for next month is being hampered because PFN cannot access their account and their State chairman, Bishop Obi Onubogu whose attempt to access the funds was unsuccessful had called upon concerned members to assist them with aid so that the conference does not fail.
This stance of the CBN was principally given as caused by the determination of the Bank to fish out financial sponsors of terrorism including the routes through which they launder money. The Christian Association of Nigeria have threatened a showdown with CBN and whosoever is responsible for the order. Some of their executives decried a situation whereby some churches with connection to the presidency are exempted while the majority are bugged down by such orders.
The CAN leadership under Oritsejafor had asked all the churches affected not to fill any form in any bank . They asked their members whose funds have been so seized to forward such evidences to their respective state secretariat for onward transmission to the national secretariat. The legal adviser of CAN have threatened legal redress if Sanusi and his cohorts at CBN do not lift the order. CAN leadership gave the order at Umuahia last week when they converged to inaugurate the newly elected Abia State Chapter of the organization. They argued that churches are registered under Act C which is for non governmental organization while the CBN demands is for Act F which obtains for business organizations.
What is surprising to many is that President Goodluck Jonathan had earlier said that Boko Haram sponsors are in his government. His special assistants on Media, Reuben Abati and Doyin Okupe had alluded to the fact that Boko Haram is sponsored by certain Northern Muslims. Therefore, one is confused at how pastors and gospel ministers, especially in the South East, South West and South South have suddenly become sponsors and financial backers of Boko Haram . Those involved in money laundering are politicians and public servants and these people are accessing their funds freely while churches and pastors are being unnecessarily victimized and indirectly tagged sponsors of Boko Haram.

ALHAJI SANUSI IS MAD, HE NEEDS TO BE REFER TO THE MENTAL HOSPITAL (ARO-ABEOKUTA) FOR SERIOUS TREATMENT. DO NOT BE SURPRISED THAT THIS USELESS MAN CALL SANUSI THE GOVERNOR OF CENTRAL BANK IS ONE OF THE SPONSOR OF BOKO-HARAM. HE KNOWS HIS PEOPLE THAT ARE MAJOR SPONSORS OF BOKO-HARAM. HE IS ANTCHRIST.

THE MAN IS ANTICHRIST. HE KNOWS THAT THE SO CALLED PROF. JUBRIL AMINU ,ADAMU CIROMA AND THEIR ACF MEMBERS ARE FOUNDERS AND SPONSORS OF BOKO-HARAM.
Sanusi is always a confused man and i think is time he knows he doesn't fit where he is right now...................Fool
Sanusi to my understanding is antichrist judging from all his policies sence he
mounted the post of centra bank and also against the interest of southners
it is high time he leave that office
sanusi is very right, his reasons might not be for boko haram but for some terrible things some of this so called men of god do, am a christian but those pastors no longer preach the word of God for the pple to embrace the God of miracles but using the church fund to propagate attrocities in various places, flying from one destinations to the other while the poor souls who contributed these funds in form of offering are suffering. why did he not frozen that of the catholic and aglican churches account or the mosque? bcos no rev father or imam is a sole signatory to thier accounts no matter how small. i think the those churches/biz centers should be paying tax as the earn bcos some of this pastors are even richer than dangote cement coy. while the members are suffering.

I had been following discussions on this forum for some time now,its being said that we are entitled to our own opinion though but I have an advice for Mr O.O Famuyiwa.He should portray the attributes of a REAL yoruba man.We are best known for discipline,respect both for elders and minors.Why are you insulting people like this?It shows you are not educated or you are half baked in education.Check some of your utterances in writing,some are wrong.Yet you sound a crusader like Tai Solarin.My brother pelepele di owo re o.Ile ni a nwo ki a to so omo ni oruko.Nigeria our beloved country is sick,we all know,some of us too are sick morally.Your verbal abuse/insults on individuals will not solve our problems.We all look towards God,the omnipotent,omnipresent and omniscience to see to the affairs of Nigeria.Pls do not bother to reply to this,its just an advise,take it in good faith.
