Nigeria suspends anti-graft central bank governor

LAGOS, Feb 20 (Reuters) – Nigerian President Goodluck
Jonathan suspended Central Bank Governor Lamido Sanusi on
Thursday, removing an increasingly outspoken critic of the
government’s record on tackling rampant corruption in Africa’s

Several dealers told Reuters that Nigeria’s foreign
exchange, bond and money markets had all stopped trading because

Nigerian watchdog tells Ecobank to reinstate ex-finance chief

LAGOS/ACCRA (Reuters) – Pan-African lender Ecobank was told by Nigeria’s financial watchdog to reinstate its former finance director pending the result of a probe into her allegations of breaches in corporate governance rules.

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) order piles more pressure on the leadership of one of sub-Saharan Africa’s largest financial institutions a week after top executives called for the resignation of Chief Executive Thierry Tanoh.
