i don't thinks its a rule, she need to be adequately counsel on all the complications that could arise during pregnancy and delivery as well as how to prevent them before she choose to get pregnant. Adequate care will also have to be given during pregnancy and delivery. I think if a sickle cell patient is old enough to get pregnant she'll know how to take care of herself.

Common, this is unsafe.

And do you know that they are all doing the same thing? You will not believe it.

it gets so worse such that when you bring ''work'', like 4 of those jobless officers will tell you that they are doing the ''work''. Imagine settling such number!

An assignment I want you to do is: Go to any immigration office close to you,enter any of their offices and tell me what you see.
Surely it must have occurred to you looking at those customs officer they would prefer having a better paying and more engaging job than sitting and doing nothing on a job that pays peanuts as salary.

For an Economist, SLS comments are very silly. When Keynes said that during hard times, govt can hire people to 'dig holes and bury them' he wrote a long convincing thesis on the issue. Not sure SLS is much of an Economist

Bros, they get more from all these ''runz'' they do. They don't depend on their salaries.

Don't you think he should call for the sack of civil service workers?

I disagree here. You have forgotten animal factor in economics. And here in Nigeria, animal factor always prevails (always). This factor turns the best analysis on its head.

THIS IS A TOPIC FOR DISCUSSION ON Nigeria Info 99.3

DISCUSS: The statement by the CBN governor Sanusi Lamido that the Federal Government should sack 50% of its workforce has been generating a storm of reactions, particularly from organised labour.
With most of them calling for his sack

Sanusi's argument is that Nigeria cannot build its economy when 70 per cent of its earning is paid as salaries and entitlements of civil servants.
Read the full story below & share your thoughts

CHUKS
----------------------------------------------------

Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has advised the Federal Government to sack at least half of its workforce to maintain a sustainable economy.

In a presentation at the second Annual Capital Market Committee retreat in Warri, Delta State, Lamido said Nigeria cannot build its economy when 70 per cent of its earning is paid as salaries and entitlements of civil servants.

The CBN Governor also advocated a more compact and less expensive system of government that would reduce overhead and free up capital for infrastructure development.

He said: “At the moment, 70 per cent of Federal Government’s revenue goes for payment of salaries and entitlement of civil servants, leaving 30 percent for development of 167million Nigerians. That means that for every naira government earns, 70kobo is consumed by civil servants.

“You have to fire half of the civil service because the revenue government has is supposed to be for 167million Nigerians. Any society where government spends 70 per cent of its revenue on its civil service has a problem. It is unsustainable.”

Sanusi said the country does not need over 100 senators and about 400 representatives to make laws. He said when the expenses of lawmakers, civil servants and the executive arm of government are added, Nigerians will find out that the revenue has been consumed by government, lawmakers and civil servants.

What Keynes was referring to was a temporary boost to the private sector not for government to become a permanent crutch.

Taking in isolation i think Sanusi's statement is actually quite daft. my former cmd always relate a dr's salary to other cadre of staff-- something like
1 dr==1.5 pharmacist==2nurses==3 accountants(not including what they steal o) == 10 ward ordelies etc.(not entirely accurate!)

The point am trying to make is that it is just plain stupid calling for sacking of 50% of the civil service without specifying exactly the quantitative reduction in recurrent expenditure that will be derived from such exercise.

Perhaps sacking him and a few other inept ministers will give a better result.
I don't think it's possible to reduce the civil by 50% (at least not in one fell swoop). In any case, I think we should focus on the essence of SLS's statement, which is a drastic reduction in recurrent expenditure. This will be achieved by cutting waste, including the number of LGAs, states, NASS, ministers and civil service. We have a situation where we have underemployment in the civil service. Many are not earning a living wage so government work simply provides an avenue to illicit gains. It also artificially improves the employment figures.

· Revenue rises 15% above budgeted N5.6 trillion.
· H1 spending 21% less than budget.
· Oil makes up 71% of H1 revenue.
She wants more transparent yet more discretion. Discretionary concessions and awards of licenses. How is that transparent?
What was the oil benchmark in the budget? What was the average price of oil? Definitely more than 15% of the benchmark price. I would have thought a fair comparison would have been the actual volume of crude oil sold to the budgeted value. In any case, we lost $7B to crude oil theft last year. How did this compare to the year before?
I don't really know what to make of the H1 spending being below budget if they didn't achieve all they planned to do. They might as well have achieved only 50% of their goals with 80% of the budget. I don't think DAM can take credit for oil making up 71% of H1 considering we lost $7B to oil theft.

Couldn't agree more. Keynes' focus on how govt could kick start the economy during a downturn. So form of stimulus package.

She is a sickle cell patient and to my own knowledge, she should have stopped child birth after her 2children...It was a risk she took giving birth to the third one..

PS, she's spent more in laundering her image with web adverts than any minister in this country. She has a credibility problemand she knows it.
Bro, DAM was indeed an O&G professional before she became a minister. She is not incompetent as far as O&G issues are concerned having put in over a decade of meritious service to the industry before she was called upon to serve the nation as a minister.

We should separate our personal dislikes from basic facts. Fact is that DAM knows the industry very well having been an insider for many years, and fact is that many people want her to continue the good job she is doing. A vast majority of nigerians i believe see her as a national asset; and i can understand that some may see her as a liability, but one cannot pls everybody.

Women who are pregnant with sickle cell have more frequent sickle cell crises due to the extra stress of pregnancy.

I was able to curl this out http://www.estronaut.com/a/pregnancy...ell_anemia.htm. explains allitle.

Never said sickle cell pregnant mothers shouldnt give birth to as many children as they want though, what i said is that it was very risky health wise...

For an Economist, SLS comments are very silly. When Keynes said that during hard times, govt can hire people to 'dig holes and bury them' he wrote a long convincing thesis on the issue. Not sure SLS is much of an Economist
Bro, I do not think so. The Keynes is one school of Economic thought. There are others like the classical and neoclassical economic thoughts. Some people (like me and I think sls) think the Keynesian school of thought of Big government is an anathema to true capitalism, and is unsustainable in the very long run.

What Keynes advocated isn't anemic (Abeg this english correct) to capitalism but Nigeria isn't practicing what he preached, what we're doing is called "Bribus Militrus".

Essentially the military government bribed the educated class with plum, unnecessary government jobs and fuel subsidies in order to have peace and loot, and the opportunity cost of this? Capital Development. And like any junkie would tell you, cold turkey is a b*tch but a necessary one.

Common, this is unsafe.

And do you know that they are all doing the same thing? You will not believe it.

it gets so worse such that when you bring ''work'', like 4 of those jobless officers will tell you that they are doing the ''work''. Imagine settling such number!

An assignment I want you to do is: Go to any immigration office close to you,enter any of their offices and tell me what you see.
We all are basical saying the same thing in different forms. Do you know people pay to agents to be employed what is that corruption. This people do not what to know if the ministry has over employed or not all this has to do with corruption. If you sack 50% I assure you that the space will still be filled as long as the main problem which is corruption has not been tackled. I want to ask a question why are we afraid of tackling corruption? We always look for alternative route of tackling our problem when ever corruption is involved. If you can solve corrupt problem most problems in our country will be solve.
