Nigeria Has A Father Christmas And His Name Starts With “D”

December 15, 2015
In Nigeria, common standards are broken on a regular. For instance, our Santa doesn’t wear red or have a big white beard. Rather, he has a big sack of treats that he has shared with people who have been naughty throughout the year.

Another fun fact about this standard-breaking Santa is, he isn’t having a Merry Christmas. He is none other than Sambo Dasuki.

The former NSA is currently being investigated for misappropriation of the $2.1bn allocated for purchase of arms required for combating Boko Haram.

In the course of questioning, our Santa has been singing like a bird, dropping several names and receipts.

Ho ho ho!

Some of the people include Chief Raymond Dokpesi, former president Goodluck Jonathan and some PDP politicians.

The nail to the coffin is that PDP came on Twitter to accuse the current President of receiving a share of Suki Santa’s treats.

Santa really came to town with this one.

And on December 14, he mentioned giving 240 million naira to a female blogger in Lagos and the internet broke.

Linda, is that you?

She has refuted the accusations though.


From the look of things, many more names will still drop.

We are anticipating like.

Nigerians on twitter had so much to say.
We certainly await more episodes from Suki Santa and his generous chronicles. Featured Image credit: Chris ogunlowo
