Nigeria’s c. bank governor to challenge suspension in court

LAGOS, Feb 21 (Reuters) – Nigeria’s graft-fighting Central
Bank Governor Lamido Sanusi said on Friday he would go to court
to challenge his suspension by the president – though he does
not want his job back, he wants to show that the move was
illegal.

President Goodluck Jonathan suspended Sanusi on Thursday,
removing an outspoken critic of his government’s record on
corruption in Africa’s top oil producer.
