Jonathan Has Failed in Securing Nigeria so Power Must Return to North-Atiku, Bugaje
Northern leaders, including former Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, former Governor Ibrahim Shekarau of Kano State and former FCT minister, Senator Adamu Aliero, met in Kaduna yesterday (Friday the 7th of December) and declared that the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan had failed in securing the country going by the violent waves of insecurity occasioned by the Islamic terrorist sect, Boko Haram, and as such passed a vote of no confidence on the administration and resolved to work for power to shift to the North in 2015.This was contained in a communique released after the meeting. In the communique read by Atiku loyalist, Dr. Usman Bugaje, the Northern leaders said “The weakening nature and perhaps the failure of the Nigerian State to protect lives and property as well as its inability to provide basic social services and guarantee freedom and rights of citizens cumulatively accounts for the current state of siege in which the North now find itself.

The governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, was recently in the news calling for the Federal Government to sack 50% of its staff to save money, however, it has just been discovered that under his watch, in the Nigeria Security Printing and Minting Company (NSPMC), rather than save money, 2.1 Billion has vanished when someone or a group of people made away with 1000 notes totaling 2.1 billion!
This necessitated the board of the Nigeria Security Printing and Minting Company to meet, under the chairmanship of Sanusi, to try to unravel the whereabouts of the monies. Add a comment

CPC Chieftain Wants President Jonathan's Home State to Have Less Representatives at National Assembly!
The ever deepening bitterness that has pushed the pint sized controversial former minister of the FCT, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, to the point of hatred for the president has reared its ugly head once again. This time, the ex-Peoples Democratic Party (PD) chieftain and now Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) chieftain has called for a reduction in the amount of representatives the President's state, Bayelsa, has in the House of Representatives.
He made this call on his twitter profile today. Ironically, this morning there was a bomb blast in Kano, but Elrufai had nothing to say about. Leading one pundit to say "being out of power has made Elrufai so bitter he has lost it!"
As usual NaijaPundit brings you his tweet exclusively.
