The rich are scared of being poor

17 November 2014, 18:25 Jibunor George Chuks.

Time to set the facts and leave sentiments aside. The rich government officials are always looking for means of empowering themselves. This is all at the expense of the poor people out there. The poor cannot get loans from the banks just they can't meet up with the demands of the banks. But the rich could just work in and come out in the next twenty (20)minutes smiling, all because he has gotten the loan he applied for. The poor business men and women out there are encouraged to open accounts, that is the safest means of saving their money.

These are same money that they can not be granted when looking for loans. This is the same money that the new central bank governor; Mr Godwin Emefiele entered into office and declared charges on ATM withdrawal which was stopped by the then formal governor; Mallam Sanusi Lamido. Nigerians must not take this out from him, because it was a major thing that he did. But to those rich people whom the charges enriches their pockets, it was a sad and bad market for them. Thanks to their so-called Mr Godwin Emefele who do not have the poor at heart, 1st of September, he presented to Nigerians with 65Naira charge. One could think this money is nothing but to what need is the charges for? The poor are been rubbed off their money on broad daylight. Big bags all around everywhere, most politicians carries money in their boots. They all rub the poor to use and enrich themselves. God bless.
