THE governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mallam Lamido Sanusi, has said the apex bank will punish any bank involved in the pension fund scam.
Mallam Sanusi, while addressing the media at the end of the 82nd edition of the Monetary Policy Committee meeting in Abuja, said the CBN had requested for the details of the issues from the Federal Ministry of Finance.
On the development in the economy, Mallam Sanusi said the international economic outlook had slightly improved when compared with 2011.
Reviewing the domestic economy, Mallam Sanusi disclosed that the committee noted the resurgence of inflationary pressure starting in January, after it had moderated towards the end of 2011.
He disclosed further that the committee recog-nised that it was imperative to ensure that the growth path noticed in the economy was sustained.
