    Abeggi, Summons them? After how many hours? Are you trying to tell us you were not aware those unemployed youths were charged 1000 naira? Abi, you are not aware that your crony and No… Citizen owns the company that was responsible for the employment scam. Tell it to the birds abeg, for once Jona. I refuse to support you on this one. Some actions need to be taken immediately. Let them step aside before any investigation commences. After all, that was what you said during the sanusi saga; that he had to step aside for thorough investigation. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot, you better tow the path of honor. Your decision will really go a long way in deciding your fate come 2015. Power belongs to God and these politicians fail to understand that. You politicians should fear God ooh. Nonsense, sack , sack sack and sack them before we can take you serious. For once act like you are in charge.

    Abba moro, your time up. To think that you still have the effrontery to be talking trash. Do you have any administrative brain at all? Abi you need a prophet to tell you that the process was an epic fail. What stops your ministry from doing your so called physical examination in batches? You would have brought out your children to pass through the same process. Ok they are lounging in the united states. Must we the youth be treated with disdain because we want to serve our fatherland. And nobody should even tell me rubbish about becoming an entrepreneur cos we all have our various aspirations; hypocrites. God, wipe out these so called leaders , you have shown them mercy enough and it is obvious they are not going to change anytime soon. It is time you(God) showed them who the real boss is.

    sacking and probing them is a good news, but Mr President should be aware that conducting a fresh recruitment exercise may cause another pestilential damage to applicants. Please think about stress they passed through, people spent money for transport and accommodation and you want them to more again. Please FEC should consider the money the applicants will spend on transport, feeding and accommodation and stress involved. FEC should also consider that most of the job seekers are from distant communities, asking them to pay another transport to the Examinations’ Centers is another punishment to them. FEC HELP US

    Mr President, You Said That You Will Conduct A Fresh Rectruitment,fresh Recruitment Is Equall To Fresh Punishement To Applicant And Even New Lost Of Live Will Accur,
