Sanusi Blows Hot Again: I Said Reduce Number Of Political Appointees Not Civil Servants



Call it a case of jumping from frying pan to fire, but CBN governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi’s latest rebuttal of his controversial statement over the week where he purportedly called for the sack of half the country’s work force, will still land him in hot waters – this time, with the political elite.

Sanusi, while speaking to Channels Television’s correspondent, Chukwuma Onuekwusi, in London at the end of the 13th session of the Honorary International Investors council meeting, said that those calling for his sack “are shying away from the reality of the time”.

Also clearing the air on his statement, Sanusi said he was not talking about the sack of civil servants but a reduction in the size of political appointees who take 70 percent of government revenue leaving a mere 30 percent for the 160 million Nigerians.

According to him “what Nigeria is practising is an American system of government that is very expensive”.

    @Sanusi, you are on point sir. My submission is this, a developing nation such as ours, whereby you have 100 senators and 400 legislators (as earlier indicated) to make laws @ the expense of over 150,000 million Nigerians is simply wasteful. If the 70percent of the Nation’s revenue goes for their salaries and allowances, with this statistics, we are heading nowhere to the development we need. Throw sentiments to the wind, Sanusi comes up with good researches n proffer solutions to it. This country as at now, does not need this huge amount of money spent on 500 law makers. Methink, the number should be reduced to the bearest minimum. Let it circulate to every citizen, if properly harnessed and utilized well, i mean our abundant Natural resources and others untapped. God Bless Nigeria. Nigeria go beta.

      We don’t have trouble with the number.It is their pay,allowance and the number of people serving them that take the bulk of the money.Scale down their pay and their total take home for the month and allowances to them and their workers.If we can do this we can also save some money for development in other areas to create jobs for the young and graduating Nigerians. Sanusi may be wrong in other areas because he has no good image before Nigerians but this case has been coming up between him and the law makers and they know he is saying the obvious.They should not shift the blame to Sanusi.If they are honest to themselves let them go ahead and discuss the case with Nigerians or go ahead and reduce their salary and Allowances

    That’s right! But the problem is; the number of political appointees won’t get curtailed, because, our govt. despise humanity but creates a lot of social biases that can even bring about socio-political unrest in country.

    sanusi is a positivist. Nigerians must take positve steps to deal with politcal issues. Politcal problems require positve action by all the people not only the CBN Boss.

    Sanusi is right. d political elites are milking d nation dry. Political appointees / senators / legislators shod b reduced by 50%. Senators & legislators shod b on part-time, or we’ll remain a developing nation. enough is enough.

“Oke Wasn’t Killed By Stray Bullet, He Was Stabbed By Thugs” - Brother Claims


Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
