The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has been named among the 100 most influential people in the world by the American news publication TIME Magazine.

The list is made up of artists and activists, reformers and researchers, heads of state and captains of industry who have had ideas spark dialogue and dissent and sometimes-even revolution.

Sanusi who was appointed Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria on 3 June 2009, ‘took up his position at the height of the financial crisis in June 2009 and immediately turned on his former peers. He took over nine banks, sacked the chief executives of eight of them, ordered a series of mergers and named their biggest debtors. He was, he said, cleaning up not just banking but all Nigeria’.

Other popular individuals that made the top 100 list are Facebook’s C.E.O – Mark Zuckerberg, UK sprinter – Kim Clijsters, US president Barrack Obama and his wife – Michelle, teenage pop sensation – Justin Bieber and star TV host – Oprah Winfrey.
