The presidency monday said there was no plan to probe two former Governors of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Charles Soludo and the Muhammadu Sanusi.

Both had last week criticised the handling of the economy by the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

There have also been media reports that the presidency was probing both former CBN governors.

However, in his tweeter handle, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu, debunked the reports that the presidency was probig the former past governors of the apex bank.

He said: “The checks I made today indicated that the presidency is unaware of the reported probe of Sarkin Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II and Professor Soludo.

“Where did that report come from? Under our constitution which President @MBuhari swore to uphold, it is not a crime to offer suggestions.”
