WHY CORRUPTION IS FIGHTING IN NIGERIA

Published

on

Any time the heart of the nation beats, people will flashback to the memories of the past — the injustice, marginalization, the civil war, segregation, inequality and outright denial of rights and imbalances in our system of governance and administration, among others.
Inasmuch as you can only heal the wounds and not the scars, you must be very proactive and discrectional not to allow the “Recurrence” as long as the scars remains very visible. When people can preempt your actions and sense of reasoning as egregious and motivated by religion, party affiliation, tribal sentiment or ethnic inclination, you lose relevance and circles of influence very fast, and plumet downward spiral.
It is ironical to say say that corruption is fighting back in Nigeria when we keep reminding ourselves the ugly memories and continue to recycle the pictures of the past. Nigeria is the only country where you appoint a very qualified person as a junior minister and make the unqualified a senior minister over the qualified.. Nigeria is the only country where only one particular section of the country are considered to be borned with Birth-rights to hold “Key Positions” in the land — be it military, the police force, the security services, and Paramilitary agencies, where people who have Masters and Ph.Ds are relegated to the background, making them subordinates to those who are not as educated and qualified as they are, just because of erroneous Quota System, and indiscriminately promote those unqualified and less educated to senior ranks, and Service Chiefs, and Comptrollers ad DGs simply because they came from the region considered to be highly privileged with the nation’s birth-right as claimed.
Those who have first degrees or equivalent are made DGs, Comptroller Generals, and Service Chiefs over the intellectuals with Masters and Ph.D in the workforce against the norms and best practices in civilized society where justice, equality and freedom thrive, where all citizens has equal rights and opportunity, and sense of belonging.
The inequality, injustice segregation in our system of so called “Democracy and Governance” is worst, bitter, and more painful and even more disastrous and poisonous than the corruption we are shouting about. It breeds corruption itself.
The greatest problem of Nigeria is that we are very religious people from the purview of christian and muslim faith. But if father Abraham, the father of Isaac and Ismael who we all revered to as father of faith were to be a Nigerian, he would have choose to use another person’s son to offer sacrifice to God rather than using his own son, that is Nigeria for you, and that’s exactly how we are. But Abraham used his own son; that’s justice, fairness and equity.
So many people today are saying that corruption is fighting back including the the government itself. The answer is very simple. In International Law, it is called “Inadimplenti non est adimplendum”. The interpretation is: “Obligation can not be performed to the one who do not perform an obligation. Meaning that you can not demand an obligation from people when you yourself do not perform obligation to others. It’s a breach, morally wrong and unethical.
Several cases and indictment against members of the cabinets and other government officials are swept under the carpets. The case of former secretary to the Federation, Lawal Babachir; the case of former Pension Fund Chairman, Mena ; the case of former DG of National Intelligence, Oke on the controversial Ikoyi Gate saga: the former DG of DSS, Duara on the damaging image and shameful barricade of the National Assembly and national disgrace which he made a categorical statement that the operation was a collective decision. And most recently, the embarrassing issue of the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun who is indicted for allegedly forging the NYSC certificate, and up till date the Federal Government had explained what went wrong, but keep telling Nigerians that investigation is ongoing, and so many other cases including ex-governors who moved from the opposition to join your party, simply because anybody who joins your party will be shielded and no longer be investigated from serious corruption charges hanging on their necks and automatically became saints.
The Federal Government release of N 16. 6 billion to Osun State barely 2 weeks to Osun Governorship election is another hiding Agenda of influencing Osun election, and indirectly buying the votes which is a gross breach, and conflict of interest. One week later, the Vice President flew to Osun State to launch more Market Moni (GEEP program), in order to influence the pe0ple and the coming election.
What makes Osun State so special? A state where the governor is owing 36 months salary and can not be probe or investigated?, but you muzzled and bent to make tsure hat Benue State sink at all cost. Why can’t the Federal Government launch this program a year or two years ago? Why sharing the nation’s scarce resources at this time just because the 2019 general election is by the corner? Using your office and official position to influence and coerce the poor ordinary Nigerians, market women and the electorates.
The removal of Sahifa as DG of DSS, is a clear confirmation of Lawal Daura statement that the operation carried out at the National Assembly was a collective decision. And reversing the appointment made by the Acting President in favour of your own tribesman- a northerner is a total disregard and lack of respect to the person and office of the Vice President, it is a Genocide against the entire of Niger Delta and indeed an insult to all Nigerians. It unacceptable and must be resisted at all cost. It is very clear to the International communities and the whole world that Nigeria is not one.
Mr President should remember that 2019 general election is by the corner and Nigerians must demand to see Mr president’s school certificate which is one of the most controversial issue yet be to unravelled and must not be swept under the carpet this time around. Nigerians must rise up and demand for justice and equity except INEC wants to truncate this democracy. He who seek justice and equity must come with a clean hand.
The massacre, genocide and ethnic cleansing carried by the Fulani herdsmen all over the country which is against Article 2 of the United Nations charter, and nobody or group had been brought to justice, and which government had also failed in her obligation to prevent which is a serious breach against the United Nations Resolution (A/Res/60/1) paragraphs 138 and 139 is very egregious and clear sign of a failed state. Nigeria must not continue like this, No, not in the 21st century, we will no longer accept military dictatorship.
We can not continue to hide under domestic laws to invoke obligations that is against “Peremptory Norms” and unilateral acts, which is a serious breach of Customary International Law. Total disregard to rule of law and flagrant violation and disobedience to court order and judgements of court of competent jurisdiction, including several cases of gross breaches which is a mockery of our judiciary and a threat to the survival of our democracy.
So, saying that corruption is fighting back in the midst of all this COBWEBS is more or less “Quid pro quo”, meaning: Reprocacity in Customary International Law. What you give will always come to you. One sided KEY appointments to your own tribesmen and ethnic nationality; appointment that’s not merited by competence or professionalism, is the highest level of injustice, denial, segregation and marginalization which of course is one of the ugly monster that is dividing us as a people and seriously threatening the corporate existence and unity of the country.
Targeting your political enemies and oppositions, and using your office and the government machinery at your disposal to settle scores and personal disputes, is highly regrettable. The fight against corruption must be HOLISTIC and transparent, and not one sided, if it must succeed and be sustained. No government can fight corruption all alone. But when there is EQUAL rights and JUSTICE, corruption will naturally wind down

Nigeria fraud agency visits Standard Chartered’s Lagos office

Published

on

Officers from Nigeria’s financial crime agency visited the Lagos office of Standard Chartered’s Nigerian operations on Friday but left shortly afterwards, the bank said in a statement.
The bank said that the officers had entered the building but then left, adding that there was no reason for them to be there.

Last month Nigeria’s central bank ordered Standard Chartered and three other banks to bring back to the country $8.134 billion that it alleged South African telecoms firm MTN had illegally sent abroad in breach of foreign exchange regulations.

It was not immediately clear whether the move by officers from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was related to that matter.
A spokesman for the agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), declined to comment.

“We are clear there was no basis for this entry, and the law enforcement officials left the building shortly afterwards,” Standard Chartered said.

Nigerian Fraudster Who Stole Millions Heads to U.S. Prison

Published

on

A Nigerian man was sentenced in Manhattan federal court to 60 months in prison for his role in fraudulent business email compromise (BEC) scams, the United States Department of Justice announced this week.
The man, Onyekachi Emmanuel Opara, 30, of Lagos, Nigeria, was charged for defrauding thousands of victims of more than $25 million. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and wire fraud in April.
In addition to the prison term, Opara was sentenced to two years of supervised release and was ordered to pay $2.5 million in restitution. His co-defendant, David Chukwuneke Adindu (“Adindu”), was sentenced in December 2017 to 41 months in prison and ordered to pay $1.4 million in restitution.
Between 2014 and 2016, Opara and Adindu engaged in multiple BEC scams that targeted victims worldwide, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Switzerland, Sweden, New Zealand, and Singapore.
As part of the scheme, Opara sent fake emails to employees of the victim companies, asking for funds to be transferred to specified bank accounts. The emails claimed to arrive from supervisors at those companies or from third party vendors the companies did business with.
“In reality, the emails were either sent from email accounts with domain names very similar to those of the companies and vendors, or the metadata for the emails was modified to make it appear as if the emails had been sent from legitimate email addresses,” the report explains.
The fraudsters withdrew the funds immediately after the victims transferred them, or moved them to other bank accounts controlled by scheme participants. The fraudsters attempted to steal more than $25 million from their intended victims.
Opara also created accounts on dating websites and engaged in online romantic relationships with individuals in the United States by posing as a young attractive woman. Using this fake identity, he instructed individuals in the U.S. to send money overseas and/or to receive money fraudulently acquired through the BEC scams, and forward the proceeds to others.
One of the individuals who fell to this romantic relationship scheme sent over $600,000 of their own money to bank accounts controlled by scheme participants.
“Opara also attempted to recruit at least 14 other individuals via dating websites to receive funds from BEC scams into their bank accounts and then transfer the proceeds to overseas bank accounts,” the report reveals.
The fraudster was arrested in December 2016, in Johannesburg, South Africa, and was extradited to the U.S. in January 2018.

Corpse stolen from mortuary and held for £10,000 ransom, say Nigerian police

Published

on

Kidnappers stole a corpse from a morgue in Nigeria and demanded a ransom for its release, police say.
Chukwudi Chukwu, 38, and Ibeh Bethel Lazarus, 28, allegedly took the dead body of a woman after breaking into the mortuary at Jesus Hospital in Imo state.

They then purportedly contacted the mortuary manager, Bright Nwanshi, to negotiate its release in return for five million naira (£10,600).

“One of the suspects is my former worker,” Mr Nwanshi told the Nigerian Daily Post.
“They asked me to give them N5m. I reported the matter to the police and investigation commenced.”

The suspects were arrested following an operation by the anti-kidnapping unit of the Nigerian police’s Imo state command.

Police also recovered a Suzuki bus allegedly used to carry the corpse.
“Suspects made useful statements to the police confessing to the crime and subsequently led operatives to a forest at Umunjam Mbieri Mbaitoli where the kidnapped corpse was recovered,” the police said in a statement..
“Investigation is in progress while the kidnapped corpse has been released.”
Both men were recently released from jail after serving six and 14 years respectively on kidnapping charges, according to reports.

The suspects, both from the Ikeduru local government area of Imo state, were paraded before the press by the police commissioner Dasuki Galadanchi on Thursday.

“Our strategic offensive against criminals through collaborative efforts with members of the community, credible intelligence and forensic digital analysis has continued to record tremendous successes,” said Commissioner Galadanchi.
“The police command under my watch has resolved to sustain the momentum of the arrest and prosecution of suspected kidnappers, armed robbers, cultists, child traffickers and other criminal elements disturbing the peace of the state.”

Nigeria: Anambra Govt, Host Communuity Agree On $140M Modular Refinery

Published

on

By Nwabueze Okonkwo
The long awaited proposed multi-million naira Modular Refinery, one of the 10 refineries approved by the federal government to be cited in Anambra and nine other oil producing states in the country, may have come alive, following a balance struck between the state government and the Host Communities of Nigeria Producing Oil and Gas, HOSCOM.

This followed a courtesy visit to the Managing Director of Anambra State Investment Protection and Promotion Agency, ANSIPPA. Mr. Jide Ikeakor, by the national chairman of HOSCOM, Prince Mike Emuh.
During the visit which was arranged by the Chief of Staff to Anambra Government House, Primus Odili, the ANSIPPA boss, Ikeakor commended Emuh for his consistent concern for the development of oil and gas in the state and assured him that government would encourage foreign investors who have the interest to cite a modular refinery in the state.

Ikeakor who admitted that Anambra has more quantity of gas than oil flowing underground, said government could as well serve as a guarantor to the investors whenever the refinery project kicks off.
Earlier, the Project Consultant, Engr. Okoro explained that the refinery project which was split in phases, is expected to cost between $15 million and $140 million, adding that when completed, the refinery would be very profitable to both the government and investors.

Spurious Bomb Blast at Sallah: Presidency Laments CNM Chieftain’s Ill Wish Against Own Country

Published

on

The presidency has denied reports that there was a bomb blast earlier on Thursday that killed about 88 people in Maiduguri, Borno state.

In a statement issued by special adviser to the president on media and publicity Femi Adesina, the presidency lamented that Akin Oshuntokun, a newspaper columnist and public affairs commentator could go on national television and tell such lies against his own country.
According to the statement, till the Sallah holidays ended, no bomb blast was recorded in any part of the country, a development the presidential aide says is a departure from the past when violence marred such festivities.
Adesina advised Oshuntokun and his likes to realize that Nigeria is the only country we have, saying “we can’t swallow poison and expect it to kill the next person”
He maintained that the tripod goals of securing the country, fighting corruption, and reviving the economy remain central to the Buhari administration, noting that government is making strides in the three areas.

 


Statement From Femi Adesina

On Tuesday, August 21, 2018, Akin Oshuntokun, a chieftain of the stillborn Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM), appeared on Politics Today programme of Channels Television, and made the false claim that a bomb blast had gone off earlier in the day, killing about 88 people in Maiduguri, Borno State.
Oshuntokun, a newspaper columnist and public affairs commentator, has never hidden his antipathy towards the Muhammadu Buhari administration, but to go on national television and tell lies of the most heinous kind betrays a mind taken completely over by ill wishes against his own country.
Sallah Day had passed quietly and peacefully, without even a firecracker going off, let alone bomb blast. That was contrary to what used to happen before the advent of the Buhari administration, when such festivals were turned to orgy of killings in many parts of the country by insurgents. Apparently, enemies of peace and progress had expected a return to the infamous past, thus Oshuntokun appeared on television with his bag of lies.
When those on the programme remonstrated with him that they were not aware of any bomb blast on that day, he stood his ground, all in a futile bid to puncture the successes recorded by government in the area of security.
Till the Sallah holidays ended, no bomb blast was recorded in any part of the country, to the shame and discomfiture of the naysayers.
One wonders: if there were bomb blasts, and more than 80 people truly died, what would be the gain of anybody, except those who have become blinded by malediction and morbid wishes? Is carnage something now to glory about? Is the struggle for power now so ghoulish that some people have lost their humanity over it?
Oshuntokun and his ilk should realize that this is the only country we have, and we can’t swallow poison and expect it to kill the next person. What we sow is what we reap.
Happily, however, those for a peaceful, united and cohesive Nigeria are more than those against it. That is why those with baleful, hateful thoughts would never win.
The tripod goals of securing the country, fighting corruption, and reviving the economy are central to the Buhari administration. Government is making strides in the three areas, and the conquests continue.

NIGERIAN AIR FORCE FIGHTER JETS NEUTRALIZE BOKO HARAM TERRORISTS CAMPS AT ZANARI, TUNBUN REGO IN BORNO STATE

Published

on

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has recorded further gains in the ongoing air interdiction operations designed to wipe out remnants of Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) within the fringes of Lake Chad. This occurred as the ATF yesterday, 20 August 2018, conducted air strikes on BHT camps at Zanari and Tunbun Rego in Borno State.
The air strikes at Zanari were planned and executed based on intelligence reports indicating that the BHTs had established a training camp in the village and were converging in an area prior to departing for an attack on own troops locations around the Lake Chad area. Accordingly, the ATF scrambled 2 NAF Alpha Jet aircraft for a pre-emptive strike on 2 specified locations within Zanari, where the BHTs were assembled. The fighter aircraft acquired and attacked both locations, neutralizing several BHTs, with only few survivors seen fleeing the area. These were later mopped up by follow-on rocket strikes. Similarly, another identified BHT rendezvous point and staging area on the outskirts of Tunbun Rego was also attacked and destroyed by the Alpha Jets. The NAF will continue to deploy its platforms to conduct intensive Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions in the entire Northeast aimed at discovering the possible locations of remnants of BHTs and neutralizing them.

How “Money bags” destroy Nigeria’s democracy

Published

on

The Not-Too-Young-To-Run Movement on Monday said Nigeria’s democracy was not delivering its dividends adequately due to “money bag politics’’.
A member of the group, Mr Hamzat Lawal, stated this to newsmen in Abuja at the National Day of Action on Youth Candidacy and Democratic Party Primaries briefing.
According to Lawal, it is quite sad that in Nigeria’s political history, money bags and `god father’ is really affecting the nation.
“This is why we have not enjoyed the dividends of democracy and good governance.
“As a movement, that is why we have now highlighted intended cost for picking nomination forms which is N2, 000, 000 for presidential aspirant, N1, 000, 000 for governorship aspirant and N600, 000 for senatorial aspirant.
“For House of Assembly aspirant, the form should be N200, 000 while that of House of Representatives aspirant should be N400, 000.
“We need to try as much as possible to ensure that election is not all about money because we know that to the money bags, election is an investment.”
Lawal said that the money bags often put money into campaigns so that they could recuperate it after election.
He said that Not-Too-Young-To-Run Movement and youths were now aware of the money politics, adding that “we are working with women group to ensure that money does not play a critical role in 2019,” he said.
He said that this was because if money played a role, the money bags would want to recoup their investment post 2019 and it meant therefore, that Nigerians would not have quality welfare.
Lawal said that the group would monitor closely how money would exchange hands in 2019 and warned that if it did, the people involved would be exposed.
Ms Nana Nwachukwu, another member of the group, said that the movement was optimistic about competent young men and women emerging as aspirants for the 2019 elections.
Nwachukwu said that the signing into law of the Not-Too-Young-To-Run Bill addressed a major impediment to youth participation in politics.
She said that while it was a remarkable feat, the goal of achieving increased youth representation in elective offices would remain a dream if other barriers were not removed.
She said that movement believed that the right to political participation was a constitutionally guaranteed right exercised through voting at elections or running for public office.
According to Nwachukwu, until Nigeria has independent candidacy, political parties remain the only platform to exercise this right to political participation.
She said that political parties were, therefore, essential to democracy but that the lack of internal party democracy and high cost of party nomination continually undermined the emergence of youth and women.
“We remain resolute in our belief that increased representation of young men and women and persons with disability in political office will enhance the quality of democracy and governance.
“So, Aug. 8, 2018 has been declared as the National Day of Action on Youth Candidacy and Democratic Party Primaries.
“We will be organising a march to the national and state offices of political parties to press the demands for youth inclusion.
“It is a demand march to political parties as they prepare to hold primary elections to select candidates for the 2019 general elections.
“The National Day of Action is scheduled to hold simultaneously in Abuja, as well as the 36 states across the country on the same date to press for guidelines in favour of youths,” she said.

Nigerian Federation commences Preliminary Investigation into Salisu Yusuf – The Committee on Ethics and Fairplay

Published

on

No sooner has the festering dispute over the leadership of Nigerian football been resolved with Amaju Pinnick restored as its president than the federation has been rocked by bribery allegations involving a prominent member of the Super Eagles’ coaching team, Salisu Yusuf.
Yusuf, assistant to national coach Gernot Rohr at the World Cup, has become embroiled in the scandal that brought down Kwesi Nyantakyi, the second most powerful person in African football and head of the Ghanaian FA who appeared to be pictured in a BBC documentary accepting a $65,000 bribe after meeting with an undercover reporter posing as an agent seeking to sponsor the Ghanaian football league.
Reports in Nigeria say Yusuf, who also doubles as head coach of the country’s Olympic football squad, was also caught up in the sting and was filmed collecting a $1,000 bribe from the undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, allegedly in exchange for selecting certain players at last year’s WAFU Cup and the African Nations Championship in Morocco earlier this year.
After initially staying silent the NFF admitted that it “has commenced preliminary investigation into the matter to assist the Committee on Ethics and Fairplay.”
The short statement was signed by NFF’s director of communications, Ademola Olajire.
On his part, the embattled coach, who is reportedly undergoing medical treatment in London, insisted he had not erred in any way. He said he did not ask for money, that players were picked on merit and consistency and that he did not break any FIFA rules.
“Be that as it may, I did accept cash handed to me by one of the said football agents, which I later discovered, upon checking, to be $750 and not $1000,” he admitted. “It was a gift and not a bribe.”
“My understanding of the FIFA and NFF Codes of Ethics …. is that gifts of any kind could be accepted by persons bound by the codes which are: of symbolic or trivial value; exclude any influence for the execution or omission on an act that is related to one’s official activities or fall within one’s discretion; are not contrary to one’s duties; do not create any undue pecuniary or other advantage and do not create a conflict of interest.”
The names of the players have not been disclosed and Yusuf is being supported by Nigeria Football Coaches Association which, in a communique signed by its chairman, Ladan Bosso, said: “It is clear to the blind that the coach’s stand wasn’t distorted by the ‘triviality’ of the pecuniary gift made to him.”
“Prior to the issuance of the gift, the players in question had already made the team and were in fact among the pillars of the team. We do not think that the integrity and reputation of football has been affected by this.”

Melaye regains freedom from ‘wilderness’ after 24 hours

Published

on

Senator Dino Melaye has regained freedom from unknown men 24 hours after his abduction.

Yesterday, at 10:33am, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce alerted the public that Melaye was taken away in a Toyota Sienna in Gwagwalada while on his way to court in Lokoja to answer to allegations of gun running.

The media aide to the Kogi West Senator, Gideon Ayodele had also confirmed the incident, adding that he has no idea on the whereabouts of his principal.

The Police stated that no complaint was lodged as regards the lawmaker’s disappearance.

In a sudden twist of event however, Melaye took to his Twitter account at 10:59am on Friday, appreciating Nigerians for their support after spending “11 hours in the wilderness.”

He said: “I thank God once again for escaping another dangerous attack. I also thank Nigerians for their prayers and show of Love. Spent 11 hours in the wilderness traumatized but God preserved me. God is the best and in whom ONLY I trust. They will continue to try. WE SHALL OVERCOME!!!”

Book Review : The Morning Sunset By Joy Chinwe Aguguo Duru

 

By Joy Chinwe Aguguo Duru
The Morning Sunset is a book written to sensitize our people over the issue of engaging in a perilous journey to Europe via Libya. It is a story written for everyone: the youths; kids; fathers and mothers. The continuing migration of people into Europe across the Mediterranean is unnecessary. People are not born to waste their future that way.
The Morning Sunset is simply passing a message to people in Africa. Those that have not been opportuned to visit western world think that it is a bed of roses. In fact a paradise . Where as it is not like that. Many chose to come in search of greener pastures. They believe that Europe is the only place they will have the opportunity to get a better life for themselves and that of their families.

My messages to Nigerians and Africans are that our people should not abandon any tangible thing they have or their education just to embark on this long and dangerous journey through road and desert because the life in Europe does not worth such risk . Also let some parents and relatives be aware especially those that are anxiously waiting for the day their beloved children will come back from Europe but they never knew that the bones of their children have been rotten in Sahara deserts and in the seas of foreign land.
