Nigeria’s Central Bank Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has been named one of the 100 most influential people in 2011 by TIME Magazine.
Sanusi, 49, a veteran of an often corrupt banking industry, took up his position as the governor of the Central Bank at the height of the financial crisis in June 2009 with the goal of not just cleaning up the mess in the banking industry, but corruption in Nigeria as a whole.
He took over nine banks, sacked the chief executives of eight of them, ordered a series of mergers and named their biggest debtors.
Earlier this year, The Banker, a publication of the Financial Times of London named Sanusi as Africa’s Central Bank Governor of the Year 2010 and the world’s Central Banker of the same year.
