Termites, Snakes, Monkeys Eat, Swallow Money
Kanyi Daily recalls that only few days ago, news of termites been held responsible for the missing N17.158 billion in 2013 made headlines
The Senate Public Accounts Committee (SPAC) had put the current and past management of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) under scrutiny.
The committee said it discovered that the fund’s management failed to produce relevant documents to justify alleged spending of N17.158 billion in 2013.
Some of the documents to back the expenses were said to have been eaten up by termites.
This site recalls that in February 2018, snakes were said to have swallowed the sum of 36 million naira from the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB).
Similarly, still in 2018, monkeys were said to have carted away the sum of 70 million naira from Senator Abdullahi Adamu’s farm house.
President Muhammadu Buhari won the 2015 presidential election mainly due to his anti-corruption campaign, but it now appears the administration has been enmeshed in monumental malfeasance.
