Nigerians have lamented the rate at which animals are gradually creeping into national conversation with regards to funds.
Recall that some persons were recently in the news for “spiritually” stealing public funds kept in JAMB office through a mysterious snake that always crawled into the office to swallow the money from the vault.
In another development, Shehu Sani, the senator representing Kaduna central, yesterday stated that N70 million belonging to northern senators was carted away by monkeys at Senator Adamu farm in Nasarawa State. This was said to be the reason for the removal of Senator Adamu as the chairman to the forum.
However, Nigerians have expressed mixed reactions to the news of animals stealing money in the country,
While some are saying that ‘animals’ are being used by unscrupulous persons as a ploy to cover up their evil deeds as corruption seems to be taking bolder steps in the country, others wondered if those behind such tales think Nigerians are foolish and gullible
DAILY POST brings you some of the reactions…
@Leke Ade: Since Nigeria is gradually turning into the Animal Kingdom, I’m patiently waiting for tortoise to come out of no where and cunningly collect the money from monkey & snake and then turn all the other animals against each other.
@Anietie: From snake to monkey ‘swallowing’ huge sums of money, they’ve finally turned the once ‘Giant of Africa’ to a steady source of comic relief and fountain of ridicule. Pathetic.
@James Lala: like seriously what do politicians take us for, do they think we are that gullible, first it was rat in Aso rock, then Snake took JAMB money, now monkey taking N70m, when the average Nigerian cant even afford three square meal.
@David Tobi: But this politicians think we are foolish, no wonder we are considered a Zoo country, you cant even say this as fact.
@Nerdi Dami: Na monkey chop money now? Please how can I be deported from this country, I just want to leave!
@Official silke: Snake swallowed 36million naira..Monkey swallowed 70million naira..If you have money in your First Bank account, withdraw everything before the elephant swallows it.
