See The Mess Okonjo-Iweala is Putting Jonathan's Government

The minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister for the Economy, Dr. Ngonzi Okonjo Iweala reported that between 2011 to 2013, the Federal Government granted a total of One Hundred and Seventy Billion, Seven Hundred Million (N170b) worth of import waivers.

In her break down on yearly basis she put the figures as follows:
A. 2011: N55.965b
B.2012 : N55.34b
C.2013 : N59.4b

Amazingly, the Nigerian Customs Service whose domain it is to execute the waivers gave an outrageous and alarming contradicting amount of waivers approved by the same Okonjo-Iweala in the following order:
A.2011 : N480billion
B.2012 : N480. "
C.2013 : N474. "

The total amount between 2011 to 2013 according to the customs service is N1.4 trillion...
Whose figure is correct between the Customs and the Minister? I authoritatively say that about 60% of this waivers is to a single business man in Nigeria. We all know what this amount of money would have done to the economy. Are we to keep quiet in the face of obvious obscurity,stealing and looting of our common patrimony. We must speak out and challenge corruption and corrupt person.

We are here by using this opportunity to call on the Auditor -General of the Federation to furnish us using the freedom of information bill, information on the following:
1. Police Pension scam: N32billion
2. Teidi Pension scam: N5billion
3)Theft of crude oil monthly put at $2billion
4)NCC Spectrum sales racket: N53billion
5)Stella Oduah car scam: N255million
6)The depletion of the Excess Crude oil Account from $8 to $2 billion.

We also demand the audited account of NNPC from 2009 to date. We have no other country but Nigeria. Government must be responsible and accountable to the people. Government must be about the people and the people alone. I say no to government of the greedy by the greedy and for the greedy.

Above all, we shall overcome.

God bless Nigeria
