So, Where Are The Loots? Let’s TAG them.

Since lies are too hard to maintain Mrs. Iweala has sang a new song and the whole world is laughing at Nigeria. She delivered the recovered loots to Dasuki.

By Adeola Aderounmu

The hysteria that normally trail announcement of loots stolen and recovered have been with Nigeria since after independence in 1960. They come and go…

Nigerians are still dancing to the music of late Fela Anikulapo Kuti. He sang often of bad governments and how they looted the treasuries.

Nigerians are not asking, what happened to all the loots that have been stolen, recovered and relooted.

I am going to repeat something that has happened twice in the last decade under two different dispensations.

When Mrs. Iweala stopped dragging her foot and decided to give accounts for the Abacha loot under Obasanjo’s reign, she gave an account that was very ridiculous. She pointed out to a few things that were already provided for in the budget as what Abacha’s loot were used for.

Recently l saw that she had done exactly the same thing for the reign of Jonathan. She gave a report that the funds (it appears Abacha looted the whole world or what) were used to construct roads.

Since lies are too hard to maintain Mrs. Iweala has sang a new song and the whole world is laughing at Nigeria. She delivered the money to Dasuki.

A few weeks back l wrote an article: Why Are Our Politicians Criminals? On behalf of over 100 million people suffering and living under the poverty line, I am asking again: Why Are Nigerian Politicians All Criminals?

Since Nigeria always have a budget then it means that loots and recovered loots especially should be bonus or boost for the Nigerian economy. Also since the lies of the Nigerian government has become visible, thanks to Mrs. Iweala’s inability to be consistent with her lies, then it was high time to make new demands especially from a government that promised us change.

Dasuki_Jona_Iweala loot

Nigerian government must start to tag what the recovered funds are used for…to prevent relooting

Let me be clear.

Can we have a proper account of the monies that have now been recovered from the Dasuki-Jonathan-Iweala loot? And please let no moron toll the line of Mrs. Iweala, don’t try to tell Nigerians that the money has been used for this or that. We know already that you are lying. So, don’t go there..!

From now on, Nigerians will like to see a TAG on recovered loots.

The images connected to this article are suggestions on how to be transparent on what happened to recovered loots.

Reroads

Nigerians must see how looted funds can be effective life changers for them. APC must show if the change slogan is real or a fuss. Time will tell

Let’s TAG the projects executed with looted funds that have been recovered and let’s not use what the budget has provided for as covers for relooting recovered funds aka Iweala looting method 101.

ibb

One day the Nigerian government will be bold enough to actually retrieve the funds looted by other big political criminals in Nigeria

We are watching the APC mandate 2015-? to see what they will tell us that they have done with the recovered loots. There is no where in the budget that shows that anything will be done  with recovered loots, so that should be a bonus boost to the economy that is today lying in ruins and desolation.

Watch out and read a follow up to this article. It will be titled, 2015 It  Was Not A Great Year.

Murder In The Creek: The killing of Azizi and Yakowa.

This story explains what may have lead to the murder of Patrick Yakowa, the former governor of Kaduna State.

Yakowa was probably one of the longest serving deputy governors in the history of Nigeria. He was a christian from South-South Kaduna, regarded as one of the minority clans. This story tries to explain his rise to power and the probable circumstances that may have led to his murder in the creeks of the Niger Delta.

When Namadi was the Governor of Kaduna State, he had an overwhelming influence and his support base could win elections in Kaduna without much ado. In Kaduna the people were generally liberal but they do not forget in their minds that they love Islam-for the majority and Christianity-for the minority. It was fate that brought them together at this point. The landscape in Kaduna boast of a few rivers including Kaduna from which the name of the State was derived. In Kaduna, peace and tranquility prevails.

Namadi’s deputy was a gentleman. Unlike Namadi, Yakowa was born a Christian. He was gentle and humble. He did as he was told and was a loyal deputy. Yakowa worked so hard that he almost didn’t find spare time to spend with his family and loved ones. When he did, he was quick to realise that the money he had was not enough or was barely enough to support his loads of responsibilities and commitments. Many politicians in Nigeria bite more than they can chew.

Kaduna is not exceptionally different from the rest of Nigeria. The government in Nigeria is extravagant, copiously wasteful, corrupt and almost totally oblivious of the sufferings of the people. Nigeria is a complete mess compared to the potentials that had been bestowed on it by mother nature. The human resources available to Nigeria is huge but the growth and development are stagnant. The quality of life is embarrassingly retrogressive. Those who run Nigeria have been largely described as corrupt, crazy and retards.

Yakowa wanted more money so he could feel buoyant in his spendings. He asked Ramalan for more money because it was Ramalan who kept the treasury. By the way Ramalan became the treasury keeper because he was a friend of Namadi since his days at the counter at one bank in Kaduna. So despite the fact that he was sacked from the bank  (probably for criminal activities) Ramalan was able to keep the treasury for the whole of Kaduna. In Nigerian politics generally, religion and tribalism play prominent roles. Your background and track records are almost insignificant.

There are well documented true stories of how former criminals became prominent people in Nigerian politics. Ibori comes to mind too quickly and the present leader of the PDP in SW Nigeria, one Kasumu, is alleged to also be a criminal on the run from the US. In Nigeria murderers and criminals continue to occupy political posts and public offices.

Yakowa’s request fell on deaf ears. The treasury keeper of  Kaduna State called Ramalan did not like Yakowa’s face, to put it mildly. The hatred was deeper. Ramalan kept the wallet of Kaduna and did not see any reason why Yakowa’s allowance or wages should be increased. Only Namadi’s voice was supreme. But this voice was not persuasive enough to let Ramalan increase the allowance for Yakowa. Yakowa was not happy that his monthly allowance cannot be increased by just N1m.

One day an expected tragedy struck in Nigeria. The paramount ruler died despite several efforts made by both the local juju men and the witchdoctors from the Republic of Germany to save his life. Jonathan became the ruler, replacing Yar’Adua.

This was an unexpected shift in power in Nigeria. The Juntas have not recovered from the shock and consequences. It appears they will tear the country apart before the next 400 days counting from today. The worst thing is that the ordinary people are suffering and smiling. With respect to their rulers the people cannot separate insanity from fantasy and they know almost nothing about the real meaning of life. They just live or more correctly, survive.

Anyway Namadi was drafted away from Kaduna. Somehow religion is key to the selection of rulers in Nigeria. He became Jonathan’s deputy. Subsequently Yakowa became the Governor of Kaduna and Ramalan left the treasury and became the assistant to Yakowa. In Kaduna State this is the hierarchy of succession. Commissioner of Finance-Deputy Gov-Governor ascension. The power shift in Kaduna is strikingly similar to the one that just took place in Abuja: people of minority clan ascending to paramount rulership.

With the way the economy is managed around all the regions making up Nigeria, the Governor in a certain region or state is the richest person because he signs all contracts and can also loot the most. The one who controls the treasury is the next-richest-he can steal or hide funds. The positions of deputies in Nigeria is ceremonial. It is called figurehead. You can work hard and still not have the possibility to sign or award contracts.

Ramalan became the deputy to Yakowa by succession. So, he-Ramalan-found himself in the position that Yakowa was earlier and then he realised the “sufferings” and isolation that Yakowa felt. He realised he had been mean and unreasonable in turning down Yakowa’s appeal for an increase in allowance. He did not feel any remorse though.

There were other issues. Using the political base of Namadi, Yakowa was able to win a new election to keep the position of the governor. It may also be that the power and influence of the incubency in Africa avails much. But Yakowa soon dropped his political base. The implication is that he weeded Namani boys out of the new administration.This angered Ramalan and Namadi. As the governor, Yakowa was a fair person and he was well liked. Even the majority group disliked not to love him. He was not “one” of them but he treated them kindly.

Ramalan maintained a constant and powerful line of communication with Namadi who now has greater powers despite being a national figurehead. In his contradictory roles, he aligned with Ramalan and together they plotted to unseat Yakowa. They did not succeed in their subtle approaches. One day they suddenly realised that there were loopholes in the national security of Nigeria. They knew Boko Haram had been bombing in Maiduguri unabated.

Namadi plotted with Ramalan and they started to throw bombs around Kaduna.They recruited idle hands that were readily available in the North as the devil’s workshop. The people became confused. When Namadi was the Governor, there was nothing of this nature. The people knew that they love one another. No one could understand why the liberality of Kaduna was now brought under siege. But the Zaria mafia knew!

Rumours rose, spread and died. Yakowa-the gentleman he was, and the trust he had in his subordinates-called for calm but chaos came from time to time. The biggest and the most secured military base in Africa is in Kaduna and people come from all over the world to receive training at Jaji. Due to Namadi and Ramalan’s plots Jaji barracks was successfully attacked. All these to bring down the reign of Yakowa, a man of faith in the way of the Christ, and a Kaduna South-South minority as they call them. The last bombing during the reign of Yakowa was at a church not too far away from Malali. A brand new Honda car was sacrificed for this act of cowardice.

Despite the bombings, despite the thick plots, Yakowa continued to prosper politically. Ramalan and Namadi started a thicker plot to compromise the liberal status of Kaduna state even more. Some myopic people think that you must be from Zaria to hold sway. They can’t even openly tolerate men of other faith. During the reign of Yakowa and with enemies all around, there was now a group of disgruntled elements playing the religious cards. After corruption, tribalism and outright stupidity, religion is rated as one of the biggest clogs in the wheel of progress in the country called Nigeria.

Several days had gone by  before a final plot emerged. Yakowa will be eliminated. Yakowa went to participate in the burial of the father of Douglas, a man whose fortune was favoured by Jonathan. The place was deep beyond the creeks, a place he knew nothing about and for which he had no attachment. It was several miles from Kaduna and that sort of social engagement was the type you send your deputy or a commissioner to attend. Yakowa has not been reading between the thick lines.

Many historians will miss the connection between Yakowa and the man whose father had died. But he chose to attend the burial as this was a common practice  in Nigeria. Corruption unites the rulers and social gatherings like these became the means to more power and connections that help to keep the hold on power and to achieve good-will points that repay with favours from the paramount rulers.

When it was time to return to Kaduna, Yakowa’s helicopter did not show up. Who knows where it held up? Kaduna? Abuja or Lagos?  Who suggested to Yakowa that he could travelled back in the company of Azazi?

Yakowa travelled in the company of another “enemy” of the State. Azazi had criticized Jonathan and Namadi. He was so bold he said that Jonathan’s government accommodated terrorists who are operating in Borno and other parts of Northern Nigeria. Azazi might have told Yakowa more about the bombing in Kaduna and as an ex-soldier he may even have told him how Jaji was compromised by Namadi and Ramalan.

What Azazi, a former military security boss, should have known better however is that hardly do any former military man travel in military helicopters. Actually, they don’t. They chose private companies and for those who have looted Nigeria like Babangida and Abdulsalami, they probably have their own fleet of helicopters and jets.

Azazi spent his last minutes with a fellow like him: both marked for elimination. What both of them did not know was that the helicopter had been “tampered” with. They did not make it out of the creek alive. Namadi made good his promise to deliver Kaduna into the hands of Ramalan-his brother in faith. In a way he probably worked with Jonathan on this one. With one stone they killed two birds plus four. All six bodies were burnt beyond recognition. It was a masterpiece murder, planned in high places and executed in the creeks.

Yakowa’s sins are that he paid back Ramalan for what Ramalan did to him. It was not a  bad pay back as such but Ramalan is a wicked man and a man who does not have the liberal status of Kaduna at heart. He saw his own “retaliation” as a love for his religion and killed for it. He will kill again if necessary, for the supremacy of Zaria. Azazi’s sins was against the nest of killers called PDP and his comments perceived as threats to the reign of Jonathan. In Nigeria, state-sponsored murders are permissible. They killed Kashimawo Abiola in the most brutal way possible, they killed Kudirat Abiola, they killed Bola Ige even when he was working for them. They murdered several others once they are not on the same side as the paramount rulers. Nigeria is no ordinary country.

When Yakowa died, the misinformed locals in Kaduna thought the bomber was dead. Indeed the bombings stopped since the sponsors-Namadi and Ramalan-now have what they want. They got it exactly the way they wanted it-to make the people believe that Yakowa was the bomber. They even planted “evidence” in his office. In Nigeria, what don’t people do for power and money? Ramalan wanted more money and the ultimate state power and both Ramalan and Namadi thought they found peace with “religious politics”. Ramalan now spends most of his time playing polo and Namadi faces an uncertain future as politics in Nigeria continue to heat up the system. His political base is reported to be in shambles.

The murder in the creek went on to be one of the several murders that are not investigated or solved in Nigeria. After the initial outcry/outrage and a promise to leave no stone unturned by the hypocrites at the presidency, everything went back to “normal”. In fact, these “multiple murders” like many before them were classified as “an accident”. When Jonathan boasted last week about investigating state-sponsored murders/assassinations, no one took him seriously. To take a man seriously, you must first ask him to take away his bottle of intoxicant. When he is sober enough, tell him that charity begins at home.

These are the probable circumstances that may have led to the murder of Yakowa. He was not a collateral damage in the assassination of General Azizi. He was also a target for elimination.

Obasanjo to Goodluck Jonathan: YOU ARE SUPER CORRUPT!

By Adeola Aderounmu

If you have not read Obasanjo’s letter, you are in the dark. Nothing said is new but for me it feels fulfilling to get an official confirmation to my blog posts.

Obasanjo said Jonathan has brought corruption to the level of impunity. That is a bloody lie. Jonathan just kept the status quo.

Impunity was there when Obasanjo came in. What Jonathan has done is to raise the bar.

With Obasanjo, Okonjo-Iweala did magic with Abacha’s loot that was returned to Nigeria by the government of Switzerland. Only Obasanjo and Iweala knew where the money went.

Obasanjo came into government in 1999 almost a wretched fellow. When he left government, he was super rich. No explantion for source of wealth. We know it is looting.

Under Jonathan, Okonjo-Iweale has presented herself openly as the ugly face of corruption-several funds have disappeared or gone missing. The largest sum of monies to disappear from the Nigerian treasury have taken place under the watch of Goodluck Jonathan, Okonjo-Iweala, Allison Madueke and Lamido of the central bank.

Obasanjo and even Babangida must be shocked that there are bigger thieves and criminals than them in Nigeria. Babangida must be feeling poor with the 12 billion dollars that the stole from Nigeria.

Obasanjo was been feeling silly by the 16 billion naira NEPA money that disappeared under his watch.

Goodluck Jonathan, together with Okonjo-Iweala and Allison Madueke are today Africa’s biggest thief. If you are reading this, you assignment is to go and find out how much these criminals have stolen recently in Nigeria.

I will never stop to say that Nigeria is the MOST corrupt country in the world.

If the sum we are talking about here disappears from the European Economy, Europe will face a sudden depression and global economy may collapse!

The level of corruption in Nigeria is the single most important tragedy of modern era on the face of the earth when war is not in consideration.

To event think that the name of the ”former pride” of the WORLD BANK Okonjo-Iweala kept coming up everytime money gets missing is a disaster to the reputation of the world bank.

Nigeria’s presidency and executive arms are so shameless and unbelievably corrupt you wonder what Nigerians are waiting for!

To include the legislators and national assembly in the sources of money missing from Nigeria daily is a source of permanent headache and worries.

In the midst of plenty, Nigerians are suffering, smiling and shieding looters! What about the states and local councils? You get Corruption Inc., Nigeria.

Obasanjo’s letter pointed how Jonathan shielded Ms. Oduah from punishment in a crime that is known globally. Goodluck Jonathan is the lowest thinker among the men who have ruled or colonised Nigeria.

When Our Presidents Are Murderers: General Obasanjo to Jonathan “You are a Murderer”

By Adeola Aderounmu

In his letter, Obasanjo alleges that Goodluck Jonathan is keeping over 1000 Nigerians on his list of ”people to be killed or maimed”.

According to Obasanjo, it is likely that Jonathan is also training his hit squad at the same location that Sani Abacha trained his killer squad as well.

But Obasanjo warned Jonathan using the Yoruba Adage that ”The man with whose head coconut is broken may not live to savour the taste of the succulent fruit”.

What Obasanjo is saying here is that history may repeat itself fatally on Goodluck Jonathan.

I have heard 3 theories about the death of Abacha. One, that he died while having sex with an imported prostitutes. Two, that he was poisoned in Aso rock. Three, that he was shot by an army officer.

I don’t know which of these theories is correct but we all know that the coconut was broken on Abacha’s head. Obasanjo is now warning Jonathan about his killer squad-that the next coconut may just break on his head!

Olusegun Obasanjo was pissed by the fact that Goodluck Jonathan set a murderer free and gave him a royal welcome.

Al-Mustapha was the head of Abacha’s hit squad and he ordered the killing of Abiola’s wife.

But Goodluck Jonathan used presidential powers to indirectly set him free.

Goodluck Jonathan is the WORST thing to happen to Nigeria.

My own reaction to these allegations is that Goodluck Jonathan should be stripped of his presidential powers, arrested and investigated. In Nigeria, the carriage of justice-real justice must start from somewhere and this is a new golden opportunity.

How can you free a murderer in the first place?

Who will confirm or corroborate Obasanjo’s story of a new killer squad?

Jonathan is doing these things because Obasanjo, Babangida and Abdulsalami all got away with murders.

Obasanjo is implicated in the murder of Bola Ige amongst others.

Babangida killed Dele Giwa and probably a generation of Nigerian’s military men.

Abdulsalami has been implicated in the death of MKO Abiola.

It appears to be a tradition that Nigerian’s rulers are murderers.

Obasanjo is exposing Jonathan, the same way he was exposed and nothing happened!

What a country!

Doyin Okupe, Nigerians will rather stone you and Jonathan!

By Adeola Aderounmu

Some Nigerian rulers and power drunk employees of the Jonathan administration need to be called to order.

Doyin Okupe should be told that Nigerians will NEVER beg Jonathan to run in 2015.

If you ask me, I would rather have Jonathan out of office this minute. The guy is a waste of space and time. Under Jonathan Nigeria’s profile as probably the most corrupt country in the world gathered new momentum.

Jonathan will go down in history as the president of probes and committees. Not like the probes and committees saw the light of the day but rather that new ones are emerging daily.

Who will forget the uncountable corrupt practices under Jonathan? Jonathan defrauded Nigerians with the constant increase in petroleum products and its perpetual scarcity. Who will forget the Farouk Lawan and Otedola missing dollars? There are so many ways that Jonathan has messed up Nigeria.

These evils did not start with Jonathan but they escalated greatly under his watch making him one of the most incompetent handlers of Nigeria.

Doyin Okupe can continue to steal, loot and empty the treasury in Abuja. This is not the start for him. He’s been there for several years. What he should not do is to categorize all Nigerians as fools.

Doyin Okupe should be thankful to Farida who threw away or burnt his files at the EFCC.

In a normal country the appointment of Okupe into the presidency will have only one consequence: the end of that government through riots, demonstrations or total revolution.

But in a lawless and severely corrupt country like Nigeria, it will accrue praise among his bootlickers, family members, acquaintances and sycophants.

These are people who should be rotting in life sentences and they are returned to government with glamour. Jonathan is a disgrace to Nigeria and serious attestation to the uncommonness of common sense.

The other day Bode George, an ex-convict reported delivered a Herbert Macaulay lecture. The organisers of such events are definitely brain-dead or zombies.

The same pattern of madness brought a criminal like James Ibori to empty a state treasury for 8 years and the subsequent sponsoring of Yar Adua and Jonathan with stolen loots.

The evil in Nigeria will continue to rise when these types of aberrations are normal.

How can Doyin Okupe be in government and we turned away our faces? Lagbaja is so-so right when he mentioned 150-200m mumus.

Okupe should know that in 2015 (if Nigeria is still in existence then) the likes of him, Abati and Jonathan will follow the prescription that Abati himself gave us a few years ago.

Millions of Nigerians will gladly stone people like Abati, Okupe and Jonathan at rally grounds and probably follow up to the corridor of power (thanks Abati for the tips)

If your campaign funded by looted and stolen funds ever takes you to Jos, Kaduna and most of all Maiduguri, pray you live to tell the story Mr. Okupe.

Goodluck Jonathan: An irresponsible man I would say

Adeola Aderounmu

Northern Nigeria is burning. There is a kind of war going on in Northern Nigeria. Muslims are attacking Christians. Christians are attacking Muslims. Boko Haram is ensuring that the flame goes on.

Earlier this year Goodluck Jonathan promised that Boko Haram will be a time of the past in June. At that time Boko Haram promised that come June they will bomb Nigeria more than ever before.

I remembered that I wrote an article saying that whoever carries the day is the one ruling or running Nigeria.

Boko Haram have shown that they are more reliable and trustworthy than Goodluck Jonathan.

Last weekend Boko Haram set Kaduna ablaze and the result is that Christians went for a retaliation on Muslims and now the Muslims are back to kill.

But in the midst of this madness, and war so to say Goodluck Jonathan flew out of Nigeria.

He went to Brazil to attend a so called earth summit. To my understanding of the situation in Nigeria Jonathan attending this meeting is meaningless and senseless. Is Jonathan an irresponsible man? My answer is yes!

A Yoruba proverb says you cannot leave fire at the top of your roof and go to sleep. Goodluck Jonathan left the country altogether.

This is a time that Nigerians could run the country to a standstill and just tell Jonathan never to return to Nigeria. He can remain in exile for all the people care. Jonathan is the worst president Nigeria ever had.

I don’t understand why a man will leave a burning house and embark on a pilgrimage. This is the lowest form of intellectualism I have seen in my life.

People return from far to attend to disasters and problems at home. Jonathan is travelling away from problem and disasters. There is a need to examine this man’s mentality for real. This is not normal.

TIME 100 Most Influential People in the World: Lies and Jargons

By Adeola Aderounmu

I read with dismay the nonsense comments written by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on Goodluck Jonathan. It leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Almost what Ellen wrote are lies that any dummy can verify. How that beats the TIME editorial beats my imaginations.

In Bayelsa, Jonathan had nothing to show for his time as the governor, just like Alamieyeseigha his boss who was arrested in London but later escaped as a woman. Jonathan’s wife is a well-known money launderer. She could have only stolen through her husband’s access to power.

Under Jonathan, Corruption in Nigeria reached a new height. What is Ellen talking about? What kind of madness has been published in TIME to deceive the world?

Jonathan has almost emptied the Nigerian treasury buying Presidential jets after presidential jet.

Under Late Yar Adua and Jonathan, James Ibori who sponsored their elections as president and vice president in 2007 is a saint. In London Ibori has become the most famous prisoner.

Which corruption is Jonathan fighting in Ellen’s and TIME’s worlds?

It is one thing to say that Jonathan is influential-all Nigerian presidents and head of states who have looted the treasury are all influential-it is another thing to write nonsense to feed the world. It is unacceptable.

Of course Jonathan is influential. Nigeria is probably going to finish under him with the spate of bombings that have turned Nigeria to one of the most dangerous places to live in the world.

Who needs a greater influence?
