Sanusi to Jonathan-Remove Subsidy and Sack 50% Of Nigeria's Civil Servant

Written by Alaba Johnson.

altFrom the Governor of the Central Bank, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, came a shock therapy advise for President Goodluck Jonathan. Sanusi wants the President to remove the subsidy on petroleum products and sack half of the nation's almost 1 million civil servants! His rationale for giving this advise is because of the huge recurrent expenditure bill which take a 70% share o the budget, an amount he believes is unsustainable for Nigeria.

However, Sanusi said that before subsidy was removed those who had stolen subsidy funds must be punished. “People have the right to demand transparency. If you want to remove subsidy, you have to show what happened to those who stole.” Add a comment

Jaji Church Bombing: I Saw Bomber Praying in His Car-Witness

 

A British Broadcasting Service (BBC) Hausa news report monitored in Kaduna, on Monday, reported an eyewitness, who craved anonymity, saying that minutes before the blast, he watched as the suicide bomber prayed inside the car. This behaviour is in tandem with the behaviour of other suicide bombers including the one that targeted Thisday Newspapers who smiled on camera and looked very happy before he took off in the direction of the Thisday offices to bomb it.

A purported senior member of Islamist militant group Boko Haram has distributed a letter requesting talks with the government, a day after a double suicide bombing blamed on the sect killed at least 11 and wounded 30 in an army barracks.

The letter was signed by Sheik Abu Mohammed Ibn Abdulazeez, a man known by local security sources to be a sect member but considered to be a moderate, reports Reuters.

If the letter is genuine, it would appear to mark a change of tack for the Islamists that fits ill with a spate of violent episodes, including the bombing of the military church on Sunday. That bombing showed a degree of sophistication not seen from Boko Haram for months. Add a comment

Atiku's Political Adviser to Jews 'God Does not Choose Cruel and Unjust People'.

Written by Alaba Johnson.

Atiku Political Adviser to Jews 'God Does not Choose Cruel and Unjust People'.

For Bashir Yusuf,  former Vice President Atiku Abubakar's Political Adviser, the Jews are not God's chosen people and he proudly announced that on his twitter profile. See tweet below. Giving an insight into what type of foreign policy to be expected if his boss were to be Nigeria's President, Bashir Yusuf came out in full support of Hamas against the Israelis. Nigerians would remember Bashir from last January when he insulted Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor on Twitter for asking Christians to defend themselves against Boko Haram attacks.

Apparently he is on the sides of the Muslim Palestinian people in the ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel. His public stance is a preview of he type of foreign policy that awaits Nigeria should his pay master become President. Add a comment
