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!

SERIES: BUHARISM AND THE FIERCE URGENCY OF NOW

PART 6

Dedicated to all those Nigerians who will never, ever give up on our Nigeria, despite all her faults, believing in her still, and hoping that only Nigerians can recreate Nigeria and make her to become the envy of the world and the most coveted place to live on the planet earth. As a matter of fact, whoever is tired of Nigeria is tired of life; for Nigeria has got all that life can offer anyone on the planet earth.

Also, I want it to be recorded for posterity that whilst I was with you, I never sought a ready-made country and a perfect country full of perfect people, but that I naturally found myself in an imperfect country of very diverse and very imperfect people and I never tried to make the people or the country perfect, but it was always my heart desire to try to make these imperfect country and people to understand one another in order to forget about their differences, whilst aiming to make Nigeria better for all Nigerians and friends of Nigeria, so they can live amongst themselves in a situation of highly contained strifes/frictions/conflicts and misunderstanding, and resolving all these squirmishes amicably in a manner that conforms with the principles of universal altruism, national and international brotherhood.

Finally, I tell you the truth by God, unless our acceptance of one another exceeds the universal acceptance of kola nut amongst all Nigerians, we shall not realize the political kingdom of Nigeria. Produced by the Yorubas in the South West of Nigeria; sold by the Hausa and the Fulani people of the North; venerated and celebrated by the Igbos in the South East of Nigeria; kola is very much loved and cherished by all Nigerians on the two halves of the Great River, and it brings life, love, friendship, peace, harmony and peaceful co-existence in every gathering, assembly and event that this fruit of the heavens is shared.


Kola nuts in a tray

My mission therefore, is to get every Nigerian to accept themselves as one, just as in a typical Nigerian gathering, kola nut presented to such an august assembly is accepted by all without questioning and without disputation, and where the same kola is shared and passed round, each takes their share without refusing, without questioning and without disagreement and without starting a fight.

And it is also, my ultimate mission to get the whole of humanity together under one universal roof and under one God who is the Creator of all.

- JOHN ODEY ADUMA

 

PUT DOWN YOUR SWORD Matthew 26:52

"I will not come when ye can help yourselves," says the Lord of hosts.

COWS AND CATTLE EGRETS

Do the cows and egrets ever think or talk of going their separate ways?

Again, unless the relationship that exists between one Nigerian and the other exceeds that between a cow and an egret, they shall severally perish like fools. What time this relationship began, no one knows, except one could deduce that they had been in this sort of symbiotic relationship, not just from time immemorial, but from the beginning of creation. Wherever these two creatures are found, it will be noticed that one is giving something and the other is taking - whilst the cow provides a comfortable, peaceful and a secure hunchback and an environment upon which the egret perches, feeds, wanders and plays around, the egret does ensure all external forces which come in form of insects such as gnats, lice, worms, etc, and threaten the life of its host are eaten up, and the flies either equally devoured by the often very friendly and ever dutiful egret or are kept off.

Unlike the cow and egret which first, have a relationship with nature, and then with one another, Nigerians don't have a relationship with their country, as what passes for a relationship between Nigerians and their country, runs on a parallel line, and never, ever meeting! Conversely, as there isn't an unconditional relationship between Nigerians and their country, there isn't one either amongst Nigerians themselves, except such as is based on somehting - a somewhat, WHAT-IS-IN-IT-FOR-ME? type of relationship - a parasitic relationship that exists between a host and a parasite, the drone in a beehive and other bees. This is the type of relationship that has engendered the NATIONAL CAKE SYNDROME (NCS).

A TOAST TO NIGERIAN UNITY AND BROTHERHOOD

Psalm 133

1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

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.
