Niger Delta Watch

Nigeria used to be a foremost nation pointing the light for other African nations to follow, but today like the eagle which was brought down from the sky by an ant gnawing at her wings, corruption has brought down Nigeria from her Olympian and soaring height, such that in the comity of nations, smaller African nations including those which gained independence recently are the ones now speaking for the continent.

The soul of Nigeria died the day, Sunday 15th January, 1956 when oil was discovered at Otuabagi and Otuogadi in Oloibiri in present day Bayelsa State by Shell Darcy. That day it was too that the spirit of enterprise and competitiveness died, and following afterwards Nigeria lost her heart and senses of rightness/justness and wrongness including of course, universal altruism. Hence what passes for Nigeria today is the relic of her old self walking with her head and legs up.

Thus, in conceiving Nigeria Watch International (NWI) we are embarrassed by the current stagnation to regression in every facet of that country and disappointed at Nigeria’s current zero image at international level.

The aims of NWI therefore, are:

  • To expose all levels of corruption in Nigeria, especially official corruption
  • To re-orientate the psyche of all Nigerians, both at home and in the Diaspora
  • And usher in the Nigerian renaissance.

The task ahead is not going to be easy, but with the collective efforts of all Nigerians at home and abroad, all friends and well-wishers of Nigeria across the globe joining us in this crusade by reporting all sharp practices in that country including all their unpleasant experiences in the course of doing business, or just visiting Nigeria for other enterprises, we are well able to uproot the evil tree in the House of Nigeria.

Above all, with God on our side we are able to root out corruption and general insecurity in the erstwhile giant of Africa, make her a paradise of glory and a beautiful bride for foreign investors and tourists once more.

We therefore, call on all Nigerians, friends and well wishers of Nigeria to send us information-documents-facts and figures detailing all forms of corruption in that country. Although steeped in stupendous corruption, the current Government may not be willing to take action against established corrupt cases or be favourably and genuinely interested in fighting corruption as the saying goes, “He who lives in a glass house should not throw stones,” we are prepared to press for prosecution of all cases relating to corruption in any form in Nigeria by enlisting world leaders and relevant international bodies such as the United Nations and Transparency International.

According to recent information on Nigeria courtesy of the National Bureau of Statistics, more than 100 million Nigerians live on less than $1.00 a day. Oil - rich Nigeria, and indeed, Africa with all its superabundant natural and manpower resources has no business being poor.

Although our focus at this time primarily is Nigeria, we should welcome information on corruption from other African countries on other African corrupt rulers till such a time when the continental version of NWI - Africa Watch International takes off fully.

We should like to add that the management of Nigeria Watch International does not take responsibility for any publication hereon and their aftermath.

Ridding Nigeria, indeed Africa of corruption is a task that must be done! Don’t just talk about it, report it and take action!

"Clip-clip..clip-clip...Did you not hear when BABA DAURA say women's place is in the kitchen?" Gomina Kumapayi seems to be telling the Road Safety woman in the picture.

"All you Nigerian women, I WANT YOU TO DO YOUR WORST!" With the scattered hair of the Road Safety women on the ground, Caesar Kumapayi seems to be daring the Nigerian, and by extension, all the women of the world. "You can't do me F_ _k up, I BE BABA DAURA BOY!"

The President of Nigeria, Islamist Muhammadu Buhari says his wife's place is in the kitchen. With this Islamist and medieval mindset, he could be meaning all Nigerian, and indeed, all women of the world.

Enter Concerned Citizen: (Complaining very bitterly - Nothing person go trust in this country. See me see trouble: This pafuka torch from China like dem Power Hasn't Come Now (PHCN) no dey give light, and im batteries, even though I just put dem now, now done die like dem good-for-nothing APC).

Er...Is anyone outa there...Aisha? Aisha-o-ooo! Where are you...which corner of the kitchen Baba Daura put you-o? Em...make you force yourself commot come fight for we women-o as everybody now dey take we womenfolk do yeye. Aaaah! Sorry, we just remember, they say you just be WIFE OF THE PRESIDENT (WOP). But make you try put mouth for de KUMAPAYI SHAME-O!

Exeunt Concerned Citizen: (Now more bitter and still complaining)

I no know wetin NDLEA dey wait for as they never start to the withdraw this EXPIRED DRUG from the market?

Atchiho-o-o! (Sudden sneeze): Pastor Jagaban, if na play, make you stop am-o. Omo Alaaja-o! Ija mi ti bere-o...THE NEW WAR...

Huh-ugh-ugh...what shall it profit a man if he gets the whole titles and forfeits his soul? Daddy G.O's prodigal son sure needs deliverance. He's now deeply entangled in worldly affairs.


Simply put, the Buharian Logic is the idiotic externalization and the unguarded verbalization of the views of the ultra-conservative islamist North (the sunnis -wahabis/salafists) about the womenfolk, teleguided from far off East - the House of Saud in Saudi Arabia.

First and foremost, the reader is invited to ruminate on the following logic:

1. Aisha Buhari's place is in the kitchen;

Aisha Buhari is a woman;

Therefore, every woman's place is in the kitchen.


2. Aisha Buhari is a Nigerian woman;

Her place is in the kitchen

Therefore, every Nigerian woman's place is in the kitchen.


3. It is not the business of every Nigerian if Kumapayi is cutting women's hair on the street like a mad man;

Aisha Muhammadu Buhari is a Nigerian;

Therefore, NOT HER BUSINESS, if Kumapayi is cutting women's hair in the street like a mad man.


And I dare say it is yet not Aisha's business if all Nigerian women have been consigned to the kitchen, just as her husband Mallam Muhammadu Buhari (a.k.a BABA DAURA) has consigned her eternally to the kitchen; it is yet not her business if all women are being raped in the streets of Nigeria, moment by moment; it is yet not her business if all Nigerian women have been reduced to hewers of wood and fetchers of water; it is yet not her froblem if all Nigerian women are being subjected to untold domestic violence; it is yet not her business if all our daughters in higher institutions of learning are facing sexual harrassment in the hands of randy lecturers whose genitals are as long as the Niger bridge and as rough and wicked like the genital of an evil donkey in the savanna; it is yet not her business if women petty traders in Nigeria cannot access, even soft loan in any Nigerian bank, all because they are not privileged and well connected; it is yet not her burden if young Nigerian women are having their biological organs damaged due to cultural demands as circumcision (FGM) and the gross irresponsibility of men who put them in family way; it is yet not her business if randy and paedophilic emirs are putting under-aged girls in Nigeria in a family way; it is yet not her concern if the other Chibok girls die in captivity; it is yet not Aisha's business if meningitis ravage the whole of Nigeria, and all Africa; it is yet not her business if girls of school-going age are languishing in emirs' palaces, satisfying the sexual orgies of their ROYAL NONSESNSE; it is yet not her palaver if our women at the IDPs camps are being violated by irresponsible officials and foods and funds meant for the IDPs are being stolen; it is yet not her business if all young women in Nigeria become prostitutes, with some of them, especially those from South South axis of Akwa Ibom and Cross River States doing omo odo (working as house helps, which is modern slavery by some other name); it does not matter to Aisha Buhari and shouldn't at all matter to her if all children in Nigeria are dying due to the lack of Children Specialist Hospitals in that country; it is not her bother whether women in Nigeria, especially young ones are given population and family planning education or not; it is not her concern if the women in Nigeria, especially the rural women are having pre-natal and ante-natal education or not; it is yet not her bother if child trafficking goes on at geometrical rate or not; it is never her worry at all to canvass universal health care for all, so long as her husband can fly to his 'adopted' country for medical vacation; it is yet not her palaver if all the women in Nigeria are doing drugs or not, whether they are going into crimes or not, still as a mother, it does not matter to her if all youngsters in Nigeria take to crime, this WIFE OF THE PRESIDENT, who without doubt, is now thorougly confused, having allowed herself to be caged by the greedy and conscienceless cabals and overshadowed by her husband's unparalleled ultra-conservatism will never give a damn if young people take to crime, and why is it Aisha Muhammadu Buhari's business if all women in the North take to begging all over the streets of Nigeria?

In spite of, a voice ringing through the vista of time calls out: Aisha! Aisha! Where are you?

Just what has this our WIFE OF THE PRESIDENT (WOP) been doing since May 29th, 2015...just laying eggs here and there like the mad and evil village hen, which often lays her eggs here and there, and afterwards scatters them all over the place?

Just as her husband, our President, needs to imbibe the lesson of DELEGATION, the WIFE OF THE PRESIDENT too needs to heed the voice of CONCENTRATION, for as Sidney N. Bremer in his four-volume book: Successful Achievement, Volume 1 says: "Whilst the highest ability accomplishes but little if scattered on a multiplicity of objects, on the other hand, if one has but a thimbleful of brains, and concentrates them upon the thing he has in hand, he may achieve miracles."

But for what will Her Excellency be remembered?

And how will her epitaph read?


Kumapayi, you are hereby fired!

Kumapayi MUST not be in office beyond this week.

Your barbarism, aggression, violence, medievalism and predatory against the daughters of Nigeria has the potential of being copied by the Sharia police who may take it upon themselves to start teaching people, especially the womenfolk how to dress according to Islamic tradition, which they ignorantly do reason in their often very myopic, primitive and very warped worldview is the best way for all humanity to dress.

All Nigerians must be aware that our country is gradually being cloned in the image of Saudi Arabia, and there is a huge price to pay for such a folly of moving from light into the BLACKNESS OF DARKNESS.

Also, all Nigerian men, young and old must learn to honour and respect our womenfolk as Ndigbo do say: NNEKA - Mother is great(!) and desist from fetishsizing and commodifying them, as if indeed, they are for the kitchen and are mere properties!


John Odey Aduma was formely Executive Secretary, Foundry Association of Nigeria; Southern Coordinator of President Muhammadu Buhari's pastoralists NGO - THE PASTORAL RESOLVE; Chairman, Editorial Board of the Daily Times of Nigeria Plc; member, National Committee for the Nigerian Youth Festival, 1993; member, core Committee of the National Tecnology Summit and was the Summit's chairman for two of its sub-committees - Publicity and Exhibition, 1998; member of the Administrative Panel of Inquiry set up by President Olusegun Obasanjo to investigate the illegal trade in and smuggling of endagered species of wild fauna and flora into and out of Nigeria, 2003.

He was the Chairman, Planning Committee of the General Murtala Muhammed Memorial Lecture for two consecutive years, 2001 and 2002 before it attained a Foundation status in 2002, having first been upgraded to that status in 2001. General Murtala Muhammed was one of Nigeria's former Heads of State and was killed in the abortive coup led by the then Colonel Buka Suka Dimka on February 13, 1976.

That same capacity saw Mr Aduma delivering huge succcesses during the Daily Times of Nigeria's 75th Anniversary (in which he raked in N6, 000, 000 into the coffers of the Daily Times of Nigeria Plc) and also, playing a similar role in a similar capacity during Dr Isma'il Babatunde Jose's 75th Birth Day. Dr Jose, doyen of Nigerian journalism was Mr Aduma's personal mentor. That relationship was so close and solid such that whilst Aduma was leaving the shores of Nigeria for Britain in 2003, Dr Jose gave him N10, 000.00.

In 1992, Mr Aduma's contributions to journalism was recognised with the awards of the Nigeria Media Merit Award as the Investigative Reporter of the Year and the Diamond Awards for Media Excellence as the Reporter of the Year, and also, the British Chevening Scholarship, which saw him studying International Journalism at City University of London in 2003-2004, with specialism in Environment.

Aduma is the author of the inspirational best-seller, THE DIAMONDS ARE HERE and the founder of Vigilance, the World's Leading Security Magazine and Scorpion News Corp, in addition to founding the Nationalists Unity Movement of Nigeria (NUMON).


God bless our Nigeria.
