Anti Corruption Network Calls for Sack of NSPMC Board and Management over Missing N2.1Billion
A Non-Governmental organization known as Anti Corruption Network has called for the sack of the entire management and board of the Nigeria Security Printing and Minting Company over the mysterious disappearance of packets of N1000 notes amounting to a whooping N2.1billion from the vault of the printing company.
It would be recalled that the media was awashed with news of the missing N2.1billion from the premises of Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company which was said to be in N1000 notes.
The organization in a statement signed by its Lagos state coordinator, Ayobami Oyalowo frowned at the half hearted and unconvincing speeches that has been the only response to the missing money whereas, it is expected that heads would have rolled as a start of measures into finding the culprits responsible for the fund which vanished into thin air.
Below is a full text of the statement:
We are gathered here today as law abiding and concerned citizens of Nigeria to show our displeasure towards the shameless and barefaced looting that has characterized the present Government in Nigeria. Many of which are despicable and hitherto unheard of.
How do you explain the disappearance of a whooping N2.1billion from the vaults of the NSPMC? And as we speak all that has been done or we have heard from the officials are some half hearted and unconvincing speeches.
To be very clear we have been reliably informed that freshly minted one thousand naira notes, totaling two billion and one hundred million naira vanished into thin air.
It simply means four thousand, two hundred packets of N1000 naira notes took a walk. Only a thirty ton truck or about three bullion vans can move such a huge volume of physical cash therefore how do we explain the disappearance of such a huge amount of physical cash without any trace?
Our demand: Let the Federal Government of Nigeria, led by Dr. Goodluck Jonathan immediately fire the entire management and board of the NSPMC (Nigeria Security Printing and Minting Company). We also ask that the EFCC diligently prosecute anyone found culpable in this shameful act.
We warn that any attempt to sweep this case under the carpet as usual will point to the fact that the government is culpable and in a society where criminals continue to get away with huge crimes, such society is giving an open invitation to anarchy which will ultimately force the people to take the laws into their own hands.
Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria!
