The Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria, Mallam Lamido Sanusi, on Wednesday caused a stir at the bank’s headquarters in Abuja when he appeared in his traditional chieftaincy attire.
Sanusi, was last Saturday installed as the Dan Majen of Kano by the Emir of Kano Ado Bayero.
The installation came barely a week after the bank lost eight of its top officials in the ill fated Dana plane that crashed on June 3 and some members of staff are still mourning their departed colleagues.
Sources at the apex bank said on Wednesday night that Sanusi had attended an event in Abuja in the regalia from where he came to the office.
It was gathered that he spent a short time in the office before leaving.
A top official of the CBN, who asked not to be named, confirmed that he appeared in the office in the regalia.
