Senator Shehu Sani presents Snake Charmers & Repellants to JAMB



Senator Shehu Sani presents Snake Charmers & Repellants to JAMB - BellaNaijaThe Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani on Tuesday stormed the headquarters of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) in Bwari, FCT with snake charmers.

Sani said, the visit, was with a view to getting to the bottom of the issue surrounding the reported case of missing N36 million from the JAMB office in Makurdi, Benue.

Philomena Chieshe, a sales clerk in the JAMB office, Makurdi, told JAMB registrar and his team that “she could not account for N36 million she made in previous years before the abolition of scratch cards.

“In the course of interrogation, Philomena denied the allegations that she stole the money but confessed that her housemaid connived with another JAMB staff to spiritually (through a snake) steal the money from the vault in the account office,” the report said.

According to Sani, his visit to JAMB is in response to the story that a snake swallowed N36 million.

He lamented that it was of concern that such a huge sum of money was reported to have been swallowed by a snake.

“I believe that the contribution I can make is to bring snake charmers from my constituency to the JAMB office and to help them fish out the snake and weed out snakes from their premises.”

Sani further said that if a snake could actually swallow N36 million, one day Nigerians may wake up to say that a snake had swallowed the country’s foreign reserve.

“Even if it is a spiritual matter, we believe that these people I brought, are some of the best snake charmers in the country and they will help in arresting both physical and spiritual snakes if there has been any in the JAMB office.”

He explained that it was very clear the incident did not happen during the tenure of the JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede.

“We are very proud of him. We believe he is someone who should continue to run this agency.

“It is good for Nigerians to know this is what happened before he came into office. I believe the best thing we can do is to continue to support him.

“It is high time Nigerians know that there may be other dirty things happening in other places but this place has exposed it for us. We know the truth and I’m very happy about that.

Sani presented snake repellents and chemicals to the board.

Responding, the Spokesperson for JAMB, Fabian Benjamin explained that on assumption of duty, the present registrar discovered that there were loopholes in the sale of scratch cards.

“We discovered a lot of loopholes. The registrar thereafter introduced pin vending.

“After introducing the pin vending, it was natural for him to call for an audit of the former use of scratch  cards.

“After taking stock, it was discovered that in some offices they could not account for what they sold.

“Ms Philomena Chieshe was entrusted with a number of scratch cards which she sold and N36 million could not be accounted for. When asked she actually said she sold them at the said amount, kept the money in the public vault.

“According to her, a snake swallowed the money.”

Benjamin further explained that in the spirit of transparency, inclusiveness and openness the agency felt that Nigerians should know what was happening.

He said Chieshe had been queried and has also appeared before a disciplinary committee.

“A report put together and sent to the Minister of Education Mallam Adamu Adamu and as soon as that report is approved, she will be disciplined and handed over to the appropriate security agency for proper profiling.

He also told Sani of another incident in Nasarawa State, where the staff member claimed that the unsold cards he was bringing to Abuja got burnt when the car he was travelling in was involved in an accident.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    Stop saying negativ word about Nigeria, it is not the right thing. The right thing to do is, the evil people behind this in JAMB office, is the ones we ALL, I mean ALL Nigerians make sure they face jail term. We all should not stop till EFCC make sure the JAMB pay back. This is what we as Nigerians should be doing and not saying negativ about the Nation. There are sooooo many bad thing happening in USA, Europe and etc the citizen don´t insult their country but make sure the criminal are punished. WE Nigerians should cry out for those who steal to be punished. Bless Nigeria at all TIMES because it is the only country you have, PRAY FOR HER. God bless Nigeria in Christ Jesus Amen.
