From 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

Boko Haram Member Sends Letter Offering Dialogue
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
