PRESS RELEASE: Sack Sanusi Now

We were not shocked hearing the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi once again displaying his contempt for the working people in Nigeria with his recommendation that the Federal Government should sack 50% of its workforce for the economy to be revived.

It has become obvious that there are some individuals parading the corridors of power who are not qualified to be anywhere around organizations saddled with the responsibility of developing policies for national development. Since assumption of office as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, all Sanusi’s major pronouncements have been either directly anti people or ruinous to the Nigerian economy.

The burden of wealth creation in Nigeria, like any other country, has been on workers, while some politicians and economic parasites like Sanusi over consume what the workers sweat to create. Workers are the key driving force of all economies and only a hollow economist like Sanusi will underplay this.

The major problems of the Nigerian economy are corruption and lack of good governance, and until we solve these problems our economy will continue in comatose.

Today, there are countless probe reports with names of those who swindled our country of several trillions of both naira and other foreign currencies still living in Nigeria either walking freely around the corridors of power or directly holding public or political offices rather than being in jail.

We see in Sanusi an agent of death that must be defeated and crushed before he further destroys the Nigerian economy.

While President Jonathan is promising to create more jobs, Lamido Sanusi is calling for mass sack of civil servants in a country with one of the highest number of unemployed, which has indeed led to gross deprivation and the current state of insecurity in Nigeria.

While we believe the Federal Government will ignore the ranting of this hollow economist, Sanusi has never demonstrated patriotism in all his advice on economic and financial management in Nigeria.

Sanusi’s only understanding of governance is simply about saving money and not saving lives as his proposals are repeatedly devoid of human content and without consideration for the implications on larger society. The burden that will come with mass sack as high as 50% of civil servants in addition to the already saturated unemployment market can better be imagined. Governance is about improving the quality of lives of the people and not destruction of productive lives.

To show how unknowledgeable and unfit he is as a public office holder, Sanusi also called for the scrapping of local governments in Nigeria, a country that runs a federal system no matter how inefficient the system is. Local government is an important tier of government in a federal system and what we need is to strengthen the system to enable it deliver good governance to the people as it is the closest to the grass-roots and rather than removing the tier as proposed by Mallam Sanusi, the local governments require more funding to enable them function properly as required under a federal system.

The truth, which Sanusi as a beneficiary is running away from, is that corruption has become a real burden on the economy and it should be the only priority item on the table of any serious government. Even if you sack all the workers in Nigeria, any amount saved from that will be stolen and the culprits will walk in freedom.

And we need to ask Sanusi how much work he has successfully done in the CBN to reposition it to contemporary realities? He is surrounded with countless aides that are obviously not required by a man who believes that the Nigerian economy runs too high on overhead cost.

It is obvious Sanusi was never qualified for the office of CBN governor in the first instance, and he must be asked to leave the office as he has shown more than enough incompetence and contempt for the Nigerian people.

Will you please find out what your man Ajero and other NUEE officials did with PHCN pension moneys?

The BIGGEST problem in Nigeria is govt regulations and monopolies and price fixing....that is where the corruption comes from.

Some of us know what you're getting from this govt dominated system. It's a pity so many Nigerians are ignorant. Left to you NITEL would still be a monopoly. If only you and your cohorts would allow private businesses to take over a lot of things, thousands of jobs will be created overnight. There will be enough wealth created that no amount of govt corruption will be able to set back living standards.

Carry your hypocrisy commot. Nonsense!

!Get Yours!

So, if government regulations, monopolies and price fixing is eradicated, corruption will disappear...and of course once 'corruption' disappears, Nigeria will develop "in leaps and bounds"....abi?

I will not even go here into the likely outcome (in a fragile social ecosystem like Nigeria) if capitalism's full predatory potentials are unleashed by eradicating the minimal presence of government that currently exists in all spheres of human development.

I wonder if you are aware of the fact that government regulations, monopolies and price fixing were/are the main tools that other people (in serious countries around the world) used/use to develop their economies.

But then again, perhaps all sharp and pointy objects should be banned from societies where people get stabbed.

What I'm saying is, if we continue to think that certain things are worthless just because so-called Nigerians are too daft/timid/lazy to put them to proper use, then we are fooling ourselves....meaning we are not yet ready to get serious.

NB: Before private enterprise fundamentalists in the USA embarked upon the adventure (AKA colossal f**k-up) whose end result was 2008's financial melt-down, they first demanded (and got) less government regulation. And then, once the expected collapse happened, who did they demand a solution from? Government.

Meanwhile, in China, despite decades of government regulations, monopolies, and price fixing, living standards and production capacities have been positively enhanced.

So, it should be plain to see that serious collectives do get something out of 'government dominated systems'.

While we believe the Federal Government will ignore the ranting of this hollow economist, Sanusi has never demonstrated patriotism in all his advice on economic and financial management in Nigeria.

Sanusi’s only understanding of governance is simply about saving money and not saving lives as his proposals are repeatedly devoid of human content and without consideration for the implications on larger society.

Local government is an important tier of government in a federal system and what we need is to strengthen the system to enable it deliver good governance to the people as it is the closest to the grass-roots and rather than removing the tier as proposed by Mallam Sanusi, the local governments require more funding to enable them function properly as required under a federal system.

The truth, which Sanusi as a beneficiary is running away from, is that corruption has become a real burden on the economy and it should be the only priority item on the table of any serious government. Even if you sack all the workers in Nigeria, any amount saved from that will be stolen and the culprits will walk in freedom.

And we need to ask Sanusi how much work he has successfully done in the CBN to reposition it to contemporary realities? He is surrounded with countless aides that are obviously not required by a man who believes that the Nigerian economy runs too high on overhead cost.

It is obvious Sanusi was never qualified for the office of CBN governor in the first instance, and he must be asked to leave the office as he has shown more than enough incompetence and contempt for the Nigerian people.

Eja,

I don't know about others sha, but me I don't believe that the free market is the best way to provide EDUCATION and HEALTH CARE. I can point you to my extensive commentary where I advocate SUBSIDIZED, SINGLE PAYER systems for health care. So can we dispense with the caricatures?

Now, here is what I believe about regulated pricing and monopolies and subsidies in Nigeria.

As long as Nigeria continues to exist as a multiethnic state, free markets are the best way to provide most COMMERCIAL goods and services, because using govt to allocate those will inevitably lead to tribal NEPOTISM.

1. I believe that YOU Eja, given your jaundice toward Igbo people, will find it VERY difficult to ALLOCATE goods between Obugi and Deep Thought based on objective criteria. Whether true or not, that's actually my belief and I doubt there's anything you can do or say that will satisfy me on that score. I believe that such discrimination on my part and yours spring from HUMAN NATURE. So in that case it's best to let the MARKET dictate.

2. I also believe that it is possible for a MONOETHNIC state, or one DOMINATED or VOLUNTARILY subservient to a single culture, or that is bound by a common experience or values....to enforce the rules needed to maintain a welfarist society.

Now which of the two best describes Nigeria? That's a good primer on my attitude to Nigerian markets. I believe I'm correct based on both theory and practical experience since 1999.

Interestingly, China exactly exemplifies all I've written above.

!Get Yours!

Obugi, sorry O, but you cannot make definitive statements like "The BIGGEST problem in Nigeria is govt regulations and monopolies and price fixing....that is where the corruption comes from." and then complain that you are being caricatured.

Next time, be more clear about what you mean...if you dare...

Which brings me to :
QUOTE:

First off, I have to ask if you will be able to list those commercial goods and services whose unfair (and deliberate) allocation to specific ethnicities by governments motivated by 'tribal nepotism' resulted in the notable development of masses from specific 'tribes'.

Secondly, I would like to know what else you need to see before you admit that Nigeria, as it presently exists, is already one of the most unregulated market-places on this planet. After all, this is a country where virtually all modern-day items of everyday commerce - including generators, textiles, light-bulbs, phones, batteries, paper-napkins, matches, etc. - are imported by various merchants (from all global nationalities) who can trade in whatever low standard of goods best serves to provide themselves with the maximum obtainable profit-margins.

In short, the free-for-all that you are advocating for (in the manner of an 'enlightened' someone calling for something never seen before) already exists!!
