After Calling For 50% Sack of Workers, 2.1 Billion Goes Missing Under Sanusi's Watch!
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.

Photo News: West Brom Defender Liam Ridgewell, 28, Wipes His Backside With Wads Of £20 Notes
West Brom defender Liam Ridgewell, 28, squats over a toilet and wipes his backside with a wad of £20 notes. Scattered on the floor in front of him are dozens more £20 notes, totalling almost £1,000.
The Premier League star, who earns at least £20,000 a week, is apparently using the cash instead of toilet roll. He claims the sick stunt was simply a “joke” to wind up a friend — but it will infuriate more than just his pal.
It’s a photo that will enrage hard-working football fans across Britain.
Ridgewell’s weekly wage is equivalent to the average annual salary in the West Midlands — one of the most deprived areas in the country.Add a comment
