Says No Girl was Abducted
Adds Bizarre Weeping Drama to the Agony in the land
“Today, when I sighted her, I say within myself that we will get to the conclusion today because one of those whose child is missing is here. But to my greatest surprise, when we asked her, she said she is a representative. She wrote down her name as Grace. A whole civil servant impersonating, she should be arrested for impersonation”. Asking the Borno State Commissioner of Police who was at the meeting to take action on the matter, she said: “You have to take this woman to I.G. and the president.”
NEARLY 237 DAYS LATTER, CHIBOK GIRLS STILL NOT SEEN
Black hole that swallows funds: how long?
Are there questions without answers? It appears that Nigeria’s government would rather have it so. In the area of infrastructure, I am raising some questions that must be answered. Join me in seeking the answers. What are these questions?
How much is missing from Nigeria’s Federation account? First it was alleged (and allegations are not new in Nigeria) by the Central Bank Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi,
- Sanusi: He raised the wild cry: is he mad, stupid or plain honest?
that a whooping $49.8 billion being proceeds from crude oil sales were not accounted for by the country’s Oil company, Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC. There was a reconciliation meeting called by the Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala,
Nigeria’s Minister of Finance and former World Bank Vice President
former World Bank Vice President, where it was found that the unaccounted for sum was about $10.8billion. The Central Bank Governor apologised for the huge “allegation” but insisted that the figure was about $12billion. Now, the same Governor has come with a revised figure by upping the missing or unaccounted for money to be $20billion.
- Now is this CBN Governor mad or stupid?
- Or is there a leak pipe funneling the missing funds into the pockets of those preparing for elections and re-elections?
- Or is Okonjo-Iweala now one of the famous Nigeria thieves shielding the mega-thieves?
When Nigerians protested against oil subsidy withdrawal in 2012 one of the major complaints was that there was no transparency in the oil proceeds management. This contention brings the matter into a laughable focus.
What is the President saying? MUM. Now am afraid the missing funds may be hiding under some one’s caps waiting to be spent on elections due a few months from now.
Keeps mum to allegation that nearly 40% of country’s revenue is unaccounted for
Great stuff Mike. I think the problem is a culture of criticism. This can be reversed with a praising culture.
