1st of all, we are going to read the
Culled from Vanguard;
SOON all that the National Assembly would be doing is investigating or probing one matter or the other. Even before the committees set out on these missions, the public is always certain about the outcome: nothing.
It is therefore with benign equanimity that Nigerians learnt that money was missing from the Mint, the factory that prints the national currency, at least the bit that is not imported. Its official name is the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company. The Mint has no security.
The scandal is not that money is missing; a milder manner of reporting a theft, but the disclosure that nobody knows what was stolen. The Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria guesses it is N2 billion, the Managing Director of the Mint said it was N1.5 billion while another Mint official posited an easily negligible N900, 000. The fact is that money was stolen from the Mint since early December.
It was not the first time. Would it be the last? For how long has this been happening? How was it possible? How much has been stolen? What about the numerous security cameras and body searches meant to forestall such occurrence? Who could steal from the Mint without official connivance?
To move N2 billion would require a sizeable vehicle, no matter the denomination in which the money is. Even the more paltry N900, 000 (an unlikely interest for a Mint thief) cannot be tucked into pockets. Stealing from the Mint falls in the realms of the highest levels of organised crime.
Questions and Answers:
1) It was not the first time. Would it be the last?
Until you catch thief before you go know say na thief. I don't think this is the first neither would it be the last
2) For how long has this been happening?
For a very long time. People don thief tire on top our head, catch us mugu for this Naija, but we never still get sense because we go still fall mugu again(there is still corruption).
3) How was it possible?
Blind man nor dey waka for where e nor know, person when know road must show am way.
4)How much has been stolen?
More than we can imagine, this one when nobody know the correct figure so, hope say they never thief the whole 9ja.
5)What about the numerous security cameras and body searches meant to forestall such occurrence? Who get house na know where switch dey to on and off light.
6) Who could steal from the Mint without official connivance?
Like I said before, na who get house, or person wen know owner of house, na know where switch dey.
INFO OF THE DAY: Obama Takes Oath of Office to Begin Second Term
Obama, with a slight smile, took the oath at an intimate, private ceremony in the Blue Room of the White House lasting less than a minute, raising his right arm and placing his left hand on a family Bible.
The president solemnly swore to “faithfully execute the office of President of the United States” and to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God.”
When this man speaks I believe the words out of his mouth unlike some leaders I know, I nor dey even bother my self to listen to them because all those their 'so help me God' na washi.
