The Nigerian leader, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, has confessed to being confused regarding what to believe from the claims of suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, over the allegedly missing oil revenue.

Sanusi first said the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) failed to remit $49.8 billion out of the revenue from the crude oil shipped by NNPC between January 2012 and July 2013, but later came down to $10.8 billion before reviewing the figure to $20 billion.

“First, he mentioned 49 billion dollars. Everybody was alarmed. We started getting calls from all over the world . . . He then mentioned 10.8 billion dollars and then 20 billion dollars. I don’t even know which one to believe,” Jonathan said during the Presidential Media Chat, concluded minutes ago.

The President, however, assured Nigerians that “even if it is one dollar or one naira that is missing, we will find out … Nigerians should watch out.”
