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!

APC, SO-SO TALK-TALK, SO-SO MOTIONS-MOTIONS, NO ACTION

As crooked as crabs, but APC are more crooked than crabs. In the supersensible - the ethereal realm of being, the APC are classified as a secret cult, very dangerous, fiendish and they have deliberately set out to cause sorrow and sufffering in the land for their pleasure. Therefore, every Nigerian must avoid this evil party like a plague. Muhammadu Buhari is no doubt presiding over a leprous Government distributing hunger, famine, pain, sorrow, suffering and death to every home in Nigeria.

SERIES: BUHARISM AND THE FIERCE URGENCY OF NOW

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance

and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Femi Fani-Kayode...the pretended and self-appointed advocate of the masses who loathes their humble trades and the philosophy of cottage thinking.

I must stress here that in my new thinking and new economy concepts, every common labour that all Nigerians and all Africans love to deride and look down upon is an economy: fish selling, brick laying, kerosine selling, selling pepper, pepper grinding, broom selling, cleaning jobs, doing secuirty, waste disposal, be those of human beings or others - selling vegetables/grocery, house keeping (house helps, but efforts must be made to make it a profession, attracting the national living wage (NLW) and not the sort of omo odo that it is right now, especially in Nigeria as house keeping and nanny enterprises are big, rewarding and very lucrative economies in the West), selling akara (baked beans), selling moi-moi, guguru (pop corn), mecahnics, vulcanizers, repairing bicycles, (please about Howard Measham), selling brooms, shoe shinning and mending, tailoring or to make it look cool, fahion design, dry cleaning, running a restaurant, (whether Mama Put/Baba Put or which ever type, B&B, selling meat, plumbing, hole digging, carpentry and need I let the reader know a female English carpenter by name NICOLA BUTCHER came to fix a new door in my house recently, her graduate friends are still looking for jobs, whereas, she who had the wisdom of taking to the so-called "lowly job" as carpentry is earning thousands of pounds daily in addition to having a work van, sophisticated equipment, all bought by herself and she is already carting awards upon awards all over Britain and the British media won't let her be!), selling suya, pap, being a bus conductor, electrician, etc, etc.

What Is A Ponzi Scheme?

Business Dictionary aptly defines a Ponzi scheme as a SCAM in which a GULLIBLE group is enticed with the promise of very high returns in a very short time, but is actually based on paying off the early 'investors' from the cash from (hopefully ever increasing number of) new 'investors.' Investopedia reconciles a Ponzi scheme with a pyramid scheme in that both are based on using new ‘investors' funds to pay earlier participants. Essentially, such schemes are synonymous with ‘’Robbing Peter to Pay Paul’’. A typical Ponzi scheme flops when the cash outflow exceeds the cash inflow. Ponzi scheme is named after Charles Ponzi (1882-1949), an Italian immigrant to the United States who, during 1919-20 collected more than fifteen million dollars from some 40,000 enthusiastic depositors by promising to double their investment in 90 days.
