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!

HOW JESUS CHRIST CAPTURED THE NIGERIAN-AFRICAN MINDSET IN THE PARABLE OF THE TALENTS

WHY AFRICA IS POOR

In the parable of the minas, Matt. 25:14-30, the difference is not in the number of the talents given to the three servants by their big boss, but in their attitude.

Before proceeding any further, let us here tarry a while and amuse ourselves as I always do when I want to preach on this parable to audiences, especially trying to give the three servants cultural and racial identity - the one that had five talents (for the purpose of today's investment capital reality, let us say £500, 000xx) and made a 100% profit was a Westerner, representing all Europe and America; the one that had two pounds (£200, 000) and made a profit of £200, 000xx) was an Asian, representing all Asia Minor and Asia Pacific, whilst the third servant, who was given just £1xx (£100, 000xx), who later proved to be the 'wisest', very pompous and the agrressive one and decidded to bury it was an African (particularly, a Nigerian), representing all persons of African ancestry.

HOW CALLS AND COMPLAINTS ARE GENERALLY HANDLED IN BRITAIN, WHERE THE NIGERIA HIGH COMISSION IS LOCATED

What is more, in a world faced with security threats, these three officials cared less about my identity - introducing myself, in addition to their refusal to give me their names. Also, I did not think I heard a thing like: "....this call may be recorded for quality and training purpose" or "Your call is in the queue and a member of our team will be available to attend to you as soon as possible" or "If you are unable to stay in the queue, you could drop and we will call you on your number in 7, 9 or ten minutes!" Or such other recorded messages as in all offices in advanced societies, where from the Nigeria High Commission operates: "...Your call is important to us and will be answered shortly"..."Sorry your call is not being answered. A member of our team will be available soon", and following with a background soothing music - or "Please continue to hold. A member of our team will be available shortly."
