INVESTIGATION: How Jonathan govt. paid companies linked to Doyin Okupe to hack ‘unfriendly’ websites

Doyin Okupe
Doyin Okupe, former media aid to Goodluck Jonathan

Two companies linked to Doyin Okupe, a former media aide to President Goodluck Jonathan, got at least N1.6 billion off the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, in three shady cyber security contracts, PREMIUM TIMES investigations have shown.

One of the contracts had instructions to hunt down unfriendly media websites with Distributed Denial of Service attacks.

It was a project conceived to shut down online media platforms perceived as friendly to Buhari or critical of Mr. Jonathan ahead of the 2015 election.

The other was a contract to intercept all optic fibre cables landing in Nigeria. The third was a passive mass and target GSM interception that had the ability to decrypt ciphers and operate undetected.

Mr. Okupe, a former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to Mr, Jonathan, has so far evaded scrutiny in the ongoing arms contracting scandal where the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, is charged for allegedly mismanaging funds meant for the fight against Boko Haram in Nigeria’s northeast region.

The government believes Mr. Dasuki’s actions led to the death of thousands of Nigerians and hundreds of Nigerian troops in the hands of Boko Haram fighters.

The contracts awarded Mr. Okupe’s close allies reinforces claims that the former NSA merely doled out cash and contracts to cronies and political associates and violated procurement regulations in the process.

In the three contracts investigated by PREMIUM TIMES, the NSA did not prioritize efficiency or due process and value for money in the awarding process. Rather, there was a pattern of hurried release of cash. In one instance, full contract sums were paid before delivery of products – and insiders claim product was never delivered.

In the three contracts, the NSA paid more than double the actual amounts of items purchased and relied on single source when it could have opened up the contract to competitive bidding.

Hunting the opposition

On June 13, 2014, in the heat of the 2015 presidential elections campaigns, Romix Technologies Ltd, registered as an offshore and anonymous company in Cyprus, received N398 million – two million US dollars – payment from the Office of the National Security Adviser in Nigeria.

That was a part payment for a cyber-hooliganism contract that would later cost Nigeria $2.6 million.

The sum was wired to Romix technologies Ltd’s bank account account held with Luemi Private Bank in Zurich, Switzerland in June 2014.

The contract for which Romix Technologies was paid N398 million was merely explained as “supply and installation of cyber intelligence system software at the office of the National Security Adviser.”

The specific software was not stated. But PREMIUM TIMES investigations revealed that the true nature of the contract was to acquire tools to carry out Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks on websites believed to be critical of Mr. Jonathan, ahead of the elections.

The actual purchase was a DDoS service called “The Systems” offered by Packets Technologies AD, an Israeli company operating out of Bulgaria.

Its job was simple – attack and bring down websites the NSA felt was not sympathetic to the administration of Goodluck Jonathan. This they did by flooding target website servers with malicious traffic with the aim of shutting out genuine visitors and working host servers till they break down.

Many Nigerian media websites, including PREMIUM TIMES, were victims of these attacks through the campaign period to the election days.

“On the day of the presidential election in 2015, we suffered a layer 7 – or application layer DDoS – that lasted 23 hours and peaked at 200 Megabytes per second forcing us to deploy extensive measures to remain online,” PREMIUM TIMES Managing Editor, Musikilu Mojeed, said.

Internet security experts estimate that the amount the NSA paid for these hacking services was at least 250 percent higher than the actual market value.

This contract, investigators suspect, might be Mr. Okupe’s link to the largesse, now known as Dasukigate.

How Doyin Okupe relates with Romix Technologies ltd

Romix Technologies in Cyprus has its ownership anonymized – a practice allowed in Cyprus and few other countries that enable ‘investors’ set up and run shell companies.

The company shares its first name and financial ties with Romix Soilfix Nigeria Ltd, owned by Mr. Okupe and Ilan Salman, an Israeli who has worked in Nigeria for close to 20 years.

Mr. Okupe denies any links with the company. His partner at Romix in Nigeria, Mr. Salman, does not.

“Romix Technologies is a duplicity of name,” Mr. Okupe told PREMIUM TIMES. “I have nothing to do with it.”

Romix Technologies Ltd is a shell and anonymous company in Cyprus – which means it can allow its true owners remain anonymous to the public.

But PREMIUM TIMES investigations traced several financial transactions between the company and its Nigerian version, Soilfix Nigeria Ltd as far back as 2012 when Mr. Okupe was still an active member of the board at Romix in Nigeria.

Our investigations also traced financial transactions between Romix in Cyprus and Mr. Salman, the Israeli who partnered Mr. Okupe to found Romix Soilfix in Nigeria, back in 2004.

Mr. Okupe claimed Mr. Salman left Romix in Nigeria several years ago and may have set up the shell company in Cyprus.

PREMIUM TIMES investigations showed otherwise. Mr. Salman still sat on the board of Romix in Nigeria and owned 40 percent of the company’s shares as at first week of January, this year.

Monies paid to Romix Technologies Ltd were a loss to Nigerians. No tax was remitted to the Nigerian government in this transaction.

Mr. Salman defended the non payment of taxes, arguing that it was part of the contract term.

“This was an offshore contract,” he said. “Our solution was in (US)dollars, no tax.”

Mr. Salman claims the Nigerian government owes him $600 thousand on this project.

An accounting official at the NSA office, Yazidu Ibrahim, had earlier testified that “in the last five years, for all the companies that were paid, VAT and Withholding Tax were never paid for any contract.”

Master Surveillance

Mr. Salman runs a second company called Mi Marathon with another Israeli, Maoz Steinhauer. In the run up to the 2015 elections, Mi Marathon, grabbed two juicy contracts from the Nigerian government through the former NSA, Dasuki.

The largest contract was one called Fiber Optic Landing Solution worth N712.2 million ($3,580,000.00). This contract was meant to create a backdoor access to all fibre optic cables landing in Nigeria for the office of the National Security Adviser.

Insiders explained this contract as ‘simply plug into all the optic fiber cables linking Nigeria so that the NSA can have direct access and inspect all packets entering or leaving Nigeria’. “Mass surveillance from the source.”

Papers for this contract were signed in January 2014. Ibikunle Daramola, a Group Captain, who was secretary to the former NSA signed agreements on January 17, 2014.

But the contract was not completed, insiders said. Mr. Salman blamed this on the NSA.

The third was a N335.1 million (USD1.6 million) contract to supply a stealth and intrusive GSM mass surveillance called Engage GI2 Tactical Solution developed by Verint.

M.I. Smart Solutions, a subsidiary of MI Marathon, sent in the proposal to supply this device in April 2014. By July, the NSA had approved and payments were made to another company in the Mi Marathon network, Mimarathon Resources Limited.

Interestingly, rather than approve the contracts before payments were made, the former NSA directed the Central Bank of Nigeria to pay Mi Marathon, in United States Dollars, on July 11 while approval for the contract was documented 10 days later.

The former NSA did not prioritize service delivery and cost effectiveness while awarding this contract.

The NSA awarded these contracts on single proposals, a manipulation of the procurement process allowed during natural disasters or emergencies or when procuring services rendered by only one provider.

In transactional documents between the NSA and Mi Marathon, seen by PREMIUM TIMES, the NSA ordered for two units of the Engage GI2 Tactical Solution at the cost of $841,000 per device. In the end, only one GI2 IMSI Catcher was supplied at the cost of $329,800.

In this deal alone, Mi Marathon made a profit of over $511,200 thousand. Mr. Salman argued his prices were very competitive.

As at the time the NSA doled out cash for these surveillance devices, the country had little need for them. The NSA had many other systems like the Elbit’s Wise Technology acquired few years before. Pegasus and many other mass surveillance solutions.

Mr. Salman denied he got these contract to help siphon monies to Mr. Okupe. He explained that the reasons only him got these three juicy contracts from the NSA in one year was because he is a great marketer.

The office of the National Security Adviser, currently headed by Babagana Monguno, declined to comment on these contracts. An FOI request sent to his office was simply ignored.

  • GMB IS NOW A MENTAL CASE

    President Buhari and his APC cheerleaders have finally succeeded in their efforts to turn Nigeria into a Banana Republic in record time.
    1. Under Buhari’s rule, we have gone from being the largest economy in Africa to being an also poorly ran economy.
    2. Nigeria was once the fastest growing economy in Africa. Just 8 months ago. Nigeria is no longer in the top 10.
    3. The Naira has lost more than 40% of its value in the 8 months that Buhari has ruled Nigeria. 40%!!!
    4. President Buhari himself announced that he would not respect court judgements that goes against his beliefs. We are officially lawless.
    5. President Jonathan set up a public healthcare architecture that turned Ebola into the epidemic that never happened in Nigeria, of course with the heroic efforts of the late Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh and her colleagues, and we lost only 3 Nigerians to Ebola. Lassa Fever has killed over 40 Nigerians so far documented within the last 2 weeks, and Buhari’s government has not made any significant effort to tackle this deadly epidemic.
    6. For the first time in the history of Nigeria, and perhaps the world, the National Assembly has been presented with two ridiculous budgets, both emanating from the Presidency, and neither of which has been denied, this after the disgraceful drama of the missing budget.
    7. Buhari appointed his relations as Chairman of INEC, and the result has been their disgraceful conduct of elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states, and the entrance into common Nigerian lexicon of the word “inconclusive”.
    8. Buhari’s record on security, despite his pedigree as a retired General, has been abysmal, to be frank. The Chibok girls have not been found, and Buhari has absolved himself of responsibility by telling their parents that their abduction did not happen on his watch.
    One abduction that did happen on his watch, the kidnapping of 170 girls from the village of Bam, has enjoyed a conspiracy of silence by both the local and the international media and Buhari’s government
    9. Tie all these in with the unbelievable actions of some of Buhari’s ministers and appointees, and you get a sinking feeling in your stomach.
    Nigeria is officially a Banana Republic, run on rumour, innuendo and the whims and caprices of its aged Emperor and his powerful minions.
    May God save Nigerians.

    • FreeNigeria

      And Nigeria went into COMA under GEJ administration.

      GMB,

      How many of your rants includes, stealing, fraud, hacking, torture, etc, all criminal conduct that were prevalent under the Jonathan administration, among many of its notable problems?

    • zung

      You mean the lie concocted to call Nigeria the largest economy in Africa? Stop the plethora of lies here man. With the single budgets presented by your dumbo, what was his output? Just lies and complete corruption that has left the country in commatose that you guys want to hide. Try as you guys will, you’ll never wipe out the fact that this country is being systematically put back on track from senseless rip offs.

      • Rico

        Why did you honour that son of pardition with a reply?

    • share Idea

      You missed the latest from lying minister that Buhari will never emulate GEJ by congratulating Dickson just in case the victory is upturned by judiciary- that is the CHANJI people are hoping on.

      • Burning spear

        DID U see any list the failures of Jonathan the same as what u have above-or hear Jonathan stole budget–at night and blamed it on the South south or the Ibos-buhari copied the budget hook line and sinker from that of jonathan—and u are here talking rubbish from the eastern flank of your regional thoughts–monkey

        • JoeTheBlaster

          Man you have a problem upstairs

        • share Idea

          I guess your comment is mis directed as I was supporting his assertions by adding more of points he missed… Nigeria we hail thee

    • Fadama

      God already saved Nigeria when GEJ was shown the red card

  • Ebuka

    This is absolute rascality. How can a government pay for DDoS attacks??? Is there any length of abuse the Jonathan administration did not promote?

  • FreeNigeria

    Dasuki should never see sunlight again.

    • PolyGon2013

      I hope so, in jail though. He needs to cut some grass. He needs to be in jail with hard labor.

    • Fadama

      Lol, but he will be short of vitamin D if that happens

  • Gugurus Ekpa

    Jonathan the crime boss, or “Fortunato”, was essentially a criminal running a criminal enterprise. He turned Nigerian into a crime scene. Buhari is now conducting a CSI (Crime Scene Investigations) and people are complaining?

    • JoeTheBlaster

      he was a big criminal and he will pay dearly for it

    • Sword of Damocles

      Methinks some clown Nigerian citizen is going to “arrange” another “award” for the former traitor-president any day now. Nigeria is undeserving of some of its citizens. No redeeming quality whatsoever.

  • Rommel

    The humiliation of Nigeria was complete under the Jonathan administration and that was because he that is down no longer needs to fear any fall,that Nigeria became irrelevant was not of concern to that man because he had nothing to lose,he found himself in a position which was beyond his imagination and throughout his tenure,he sat down dreaming while Nigeria went to the dogs.May the likes of Jonathan Goodluck never get near our seat of power again, in fact never hold any position of influence where decisions that affect human lives could be made.He was a curse on Nigeria.

    • JoeTheBlaster

      very true

    • PolyGon2013

      Yep, you were right. Perhaps, Nigeria needed a Jonathan Fortunuato Azikiwe to wake us up from our slumber. Thanks to those who ensure that Buhari became the nominee for APC and ultimately the president of our country. May God bless us all.

  • Gugurus Ekpa

    Jonathan was not satisfied with beating Nigeria down until it was rolling on the floor in pain. It also had to kick Nigeria in the groin and in the stomach, and stumped Nigeria’s head a couple of times before Buhari came along to restrain Jonathan from further damaging Nigeria. Jonathan simply hated Nigeria with every nerve running through his body. Jonathan wanted to kill Nigeria slowly and softly.

  • MC

    Premiumtimes ‘investigations’ just like the above is oft presumptive and lacking in hard facts. For instance, the refusal for details by the current ‘head’ of NSA, Babagana Mungono, renders this ‘investigation’ inconclusive (like INEC elections nowadays under Buhari). This kind of hurry-hurry journalism is a result of impatience and exposition of its orgiastic tendency for sensationalism and continued pro-APC propagandizing by the soft-sell newspaper.

    The insinuation here is that PT was a victim of GEJ’s failed attempt to hack down its server which even succumbed to ordinary distributed denial of service (DDoS). Hahahahaa!!! Well, we hope hackers don’t remember PT because it’s obvious that its website doesn’t have first-tier internet security.

    • Peter_Edo

      They hacked punch several times. So many times I can’t even count during the run up to the elections.

      • MC

        Wao! Really!? And it’s Goodluck Ebele Jonathan too?

        • Peter_Edo

          U sabi read at all?

  • persona

    Everyone will appreciate the anger from PMB during the media chat on the level of hatred that these guys had for this country.
    Executive rascality just to insulate themselves from the people.
    Working with rogue elements just to listen to our calls, working with “great marketer” just to snoop and desecrate websites.
    Was it not cheaper to have served the people and render these rogue elements useless? A clueless leader took the nation into a one chance bus.

  • Spoken word

    As fat as he is okupe is still stealing.

    • Fadama

      This your observation is funny o. Is there a study out there showing a negative relationship between weight and thievery?

      • Spoken word

        Okupe is obviously a glutton.

  • Truth Hurts

    When you think you have and heard it all, another bombshell explodes

    • JoeTheBlaster

      So disgusting ain’t it?

    • PolyGon2013

      It is the beginning. CHANGE has come, and Nigeria will be better, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

      • Abiboss

        Anyone that is making noise against anti corruption movement is one of them. Okupe just made some noises against Buhari. Same thing with Metuh, Fani , Yakassai etc. It has been a pattern for these looters. They make noise when they feel the heat.

  • REDEEM

    It is now clear that Premium Times is now a paid agent to the Apes in APC ati–EFCC—whenever an anti corruption agency is through with investigating–a case of corruption–the best option is for the siad anti corruption agency to charge the person to court–That is the issue at stake with the present Satanic government of Buhari—Becauase even if the accused persons who are presummed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law-their cases will not die unlike Buhari—Who in spite of the Head of INEC being accused of stealing over 800m from UBEC still appointed him as the head of–INEC–Dambazua has the case of stealing more than 4b–from the army—Yet his case

    Buhari Will Not Congratulate Dickson – Lai Mohammed.

    If Seriake Dickson the Governor of Bayelsa State is expecting a congratulatory message from President Muhammadu Buhari over his recent re-election for a second term of office, he had better forget it.
    Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s minister of information and culture told journalists in Abuja on Monday that the President would not follow the habit of his predecessor who was of the habit of sending congratulatory messages to winners of elections regardless of party affiliation immediately after announcement of results.

    Governor Dickson of Peoples Democratic Party was recently re-elected for a second term in an election that was marred by violence. He defeated Timipre Slyva of All Progressives Congress, APC, the party of President Buhari.

    There have been calls, especially from Senator Ben Bruce, a Bayelsa State PDP Senator and other members of the party that President Buhari should toe the path of former president, Goodluck Jonathan who issued statements to congratulate members of the opposition party who won governorship election during his tenure.

    But Mohammed told journalists that President Buhari sees such congratulatory messages as unnecessary interference in elections or their outcomes which he will not engage in.
    “This President is not in the business of interfering and intervening in elections,” the Minister said.
    He also noted that the President never sent any congratulatory message to the APC candidate who was also victorious in Kogi State gubernatorial election.

  • Tony

    SO YOU EXPECT BUHARI TO BE MAGNANIMOUS?

    Those of you expecting a leopard to change its spots and assume that of a Zebra are the real issues.

    You see me I am a realist, I face issues head on and I expect nothing from anyone but whatever I want I get up and go for it if I fail I know at least I have tried.

    I expect nothing from Buhari so I am not disappointed at any of his actions and would never be because I know they man can’t be helped.

    Blessed are those who do expect for they shall not be disappointed.

    When he lost elections in 2011 did he not come out like a kid in a candy store and threatened to pull down all the aisles if he dos not get his favourite candy?

    Did he not promise to make the country ungovernable through his then mouth piece senile Kaita?

    Did he not use his mouth to say if he does not win the election that the baboon and the dogs would be soaked in blood?

    The word magnanimity is even too big a word for him to understand so cry a river and wished he would congratulate a winner in a contest trust me he won’t. The man is not only a sore loser but he is also too crass to be civil. Would his congratulatory message to Dickson stop the man from being a winner that he is?

    Abeg Buhari keep your congratulatory message to those in Katsina your 97% docile rabid followers who cannot think for themselves but you must think for them. Or do you think at all? I am just asking o!

    Now where is that governor from Jigawa that said Bayelsa oil belongs to them? Ifu idad.

    True leaders are born not made “Nemo dat non quon habitte” you cannot give what you do not have. Buhari has no grace, finesse, class and does not even understand what it means to be graceful even in defeat so allow him lick his sores in peace mbok! He deserves to. He can’t give grace because he has none….

    Tyrants don’t congratulate but they scorn but this time, he is the one being scorned.

    Jonathan, you must give it to him the man is diamond mounted on a golden calf.

    You can’t hide his kind. Did he not congratulated Aregbesola, Oshiomole, Obiano? That is the difference between an educated man and another with kilishi wrap as his certificate.

    It never mattered to Jonathan that his party lost and even when it seemed like he was losing the last election the decent man called the tyrant and conceded defeat.

    Did the tyrant not promise to replicate such and actually said Jonathan’s magnanimity would be like the paradigm for all to follow? Oh! Well, it’s Buhari his word can never be his bond hence, why I do not take anything he says as anything of importance.

    The man is too mercurial and too slimy even for his own good. Buhari can’t stand by any of his words he is a liar period.

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      So you expect Buhari to forgive unprecedented looting in the name of magnanimity? You must be a lunatic or one of the beneficiary of the distraction of our economy. You are insane

  • Paul Young

    We are in trouble. I hope a curse has not been placed on Nigeria. Why are we incapable of having good leaders. GEJ was just awful as a president but buhari so far looks hopeless as well. If I were labor party, accord or APGA i will be thinking this is a golden opportunity to to start developing wonderful economic plans and take over 2019

      You all foisted a tyrant on us now, you too have gone deaf and dumb, this deafness and dumbness is not from senility but from fear of what the tyrant would do to shut them up.

      As in seriously Buhari can order for people to be picked and kept in prison at his leisure without any charge and we are looking on helplessly and some are clapping, hailing him still as the saviour and no one has the temerity nor can stand up to ask him why?

      Really disheartening.

    I think it’s high time the government expels this Isreali called Ilan Salman from Nigeria! Same man who was caught with dollars trying to buy arms illegally from South Africa! This man is a confirmed criminal,I personally have visited one of his “fake” offices at Wuse 2 just behind Big Bites where they go by the name “EMI Systems” masqureding as manufactures of security doors but these guys are thieves and criminals taking advantage of the weak system in Nigeria to defraud and make easy money from the government.

    • K_Kenechukwu

      I repeat Mr. Ilan Salman of EMI systems just behind BIG BITES, wuse 2 Abuja at Lobito Crescent should be arrested NOW!! This man, I believe is one of the sponsors of Boko Haram! He is an Isreali with vast experience in terrorism and they specialize in waging war in developing countries to profit from it. I have had an encounter with the man at his office where they front as door manufacturers and use Nigerians like slaves! He is one of the scariest looking human being I have ever met, I know these Isreali guys, the major operatives are Ilan Salman, Mr. Iyal, And Vikky. Same people who tried illegal arms purchase from south Africa, same people who have links to very powerful people in this country like the late Abacha, IBB, GEJ, etc. They are international criminals and terrorists! They should be investigated soonest! And banned from Nigeria!

  • Curseless

    As long as the so called average Nigerians continue to see things from ethnic perspective then they should not expect a solution to the myriad of problems confronting the country. Let us deal with these enemies of the republic who have stolen our common wealth into nothingness. Personally , I do not care who ends up in jail as long as they will act as deterrent to future looters, and this have nothing to do with whether you are Igbo, Yoruba or Hausa as the consequences of these unpatriotic Nigerians affects us all directly or indirectly. Can’t people work for honest wages, can’t people work to elevate Nigeria rather than looking at public office as avenues to do nothing but steal? The simple answer is that they know they can get away with it, and let us thank God for Buhari who may not be a perfect man but is courageous enough to stare this evil in the eyes. May the Lord help your effort General.

    ACT 1, SCENE 1
    So, in the evening of Wednesday February 27, Mrs. Yaro flew to Lagos ahead of Mr. Sanusi, skipping work, at taxpayers’ expense, on Thursday February 28 and Friday, March 1… To keep faith with Mrs. Yaro’s date, the CBN governor arrived Lagos, traveling on a chartered flight, on the night of February 28, and checked into the Federal Palace Hotel, passage and boarding all at taxpayers’ expense.

    ACT 2, SCENE 1
    Mrs. Yaro arrived Lagos on the night of March 15, and immediately checked into the Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel on Victoria Island. Mr. Sanusi flew from Kano to Lagos via chartered jet on the bills of the Nigerian taxpayers. ..The lovers spent that night and the next day together in the hotel…Both Mr. Sanusi and Mrs. Yaro rendezvoused in the hotel till Sunday , PREMIUM TIMES learnt.


    ————————————————————-
    “…I had such a wonderful weekend,” Mrs. Yaro confessed to the governor while aboard her Abuja-bound flight. “You have revived in me what I thought I lost long ago. I thought I lost the passion to love again,” she claimed.
    “Alhamdulillahi. Love you,” Mr. Sanusi responded in a measured tone —– Premium Times, June 2, 2013

    ….and he became an Emir=King= of his people…possible only in warped Nigeria…….and for your information, nobody must insult Sanusi Lamido Sanusi AT Room 23. Why? He is an “eminent” and “great” leader of Room 23 at Raddisson Blu Hotel. And the same Sanusi would tell us not to insult Ahmadu Bello who openly stated on video interview in 1965 that he would consider a foreigner rather than employ and Igbo from Eastern Nigeria. Was such a ‘leader’ fit to live? Nonsense!

It’s the duty of every Nigerian to make sure the international community is educated about this man’s crime and recklessness. He deserves to be questioned, tried and jailed!

    THE SCAM ENVELOPED & SOLD AS ARMS DEAL PROBE.

    1) The $2.1billion is the total Defense Budget in the last few years, which the Buhari panel added together. They Never said that this fund was missing or mismanaged, and their report is not yet submitted.

    2) $320m was the Abacha Money given to Dasuki and he has denied misappropriating even a kobo from the funds meant to purchase arms for Our soldiers.

    3) The Billions Dasuki shared are from his Security Vote and that of the President, which the law did not spell how it will be spent. He was denied freedom to prevent him from telling his side of the story.

    4) $1billion arms loans approved by the National Assembly were remitted to Arm dealers and Countries that sold arms to Nigeria directly. No kobo from the above fund entered Nigeria.

    5) The arms Purchase Investigation have not indicted anyone, that is why the Govt and its Agencies refocused on the Security Votes and how PDP spent their Campaign funds.

    Let those that stole the Nation’s wealth refund the money and face prosecution, but Buhari lying to us that he is investigating the Arm purchase fund, instead of the PDP campaign fund, NSA office spending in 4 years, security votes or fighting his perceived political enemies is regrettable. – Hope For

      As crude oil was selling above $100,Algeria saved over $100 Billion in reserves,Saudi kept $750 Billion,president Jonathan Inherited $62 Billion,how much did he add? where is the money? we know how much that was shared between the three tiers of government,where is Nigeria’s money made under the Jonathan administration? where is the muchaaa?

  • Holy Man

    I just want all Nigerians to look at the spiritual angle.
    Do you know if Goodluck Ebele Jonathan was cursed by somebody in the past?
    That is what my revelation shows me. His story is too much a tragedy to be normal.
    How can anybody spend this amount of money that is un-heard of and lose an election?
    If you give the Dasukigate money to Ayo Fayose, for example, he will win by landslide.

    What I’m saying is that Goodluck Jonathan needs deliverance from ignorance and evil spirit.
    He’s not himself, not that he is mad, no, but he was made mad by the evil spirit of heavy money.
    Was it normal for Jonathan to be writing letters to Sanusi Lamido for 13 months on the CBN theft?
    Was Jonathan afraid to act on the audit done by the Financial Reporting Council or why the letters?
    As the Mumudeen Jonathan was writing letters Sanusi Lamido was concocting lies to stain Jonathan.

    “One of the most annoying responses we get from the handlers of President Buhari in recent times is that the president is taking his time to fight corruption, so therefore the economy could wait. Ridiculous as this may sound, it is the new line of defence in the government’s political discourse. Eight months in and the only thing our president has done is to fight corruption!

    First, in his bid to recruit ‘incorruptible’ saints as technocrats, he spent three months without a cabinet, only for the technocrats to turn out as the same people we know, and not some angels from the other world; all in the bid to avoid corruption. As if that is not enough, President Buhari has ordered the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to carry out certain embarrassing and ridiculous directives, all in the name of fighting corruption. The president has vowed to disregard unfavorable court orders; all in the name of fighting corruption. Despite all the cacophony of the ‘anti-corruption’ propaganda, eight months after, not even a single case has been tried successfully and won against corruption. One would begin to wonder that, since when has it become the fiscal responsibility of Mr. President to fight corruption, when there are agencies specifically designed to do just that?

    By the way, where in our constitution can we find ‘Fighting Corruption’ as a fiscal responsibility either on the exclusive, concurrent or residual list? Why should fighting corruption be an achievement by a government when it is in fact supposed to be a responsibility of a specific arm of government?

    The duties of the Federal Government of Nigeria are clearly spelt out in our federal system: policy making, defence, foreign policy, banking, immigration, general economic planning, infrastructural development, etc. Today we have a government that has abysmally abandoned its true fiscal responsibility and is craftily using the slogan of ‘anti-corruption’ as a justification for its failure in carrying out its true economic functions. The Naira has broken a three decade record, the implementation of the 2016 budget is threatened by uncertain sources of funding, Boko Haram still attacks, the Chibok girls are yet to be found, federal contractors are abandoning sites, stocks in the exchange market keep dropping in value, foreign investors remain unsure of the economy, salaries are being owed, Nigeria’s name has disappeared from the list of the world’s emerging economies, etc. Yet, when you ask Mr. President about what he has done, what you hear is ‘we are fighting corruption’. This is becoming unbearable.

    Today we have President Buhari and we are asking, what has he really done in genuinely fighting corruption other than creating political division, ruining the economy, raising ethnic tensions and launching media propaganda, all in a primitive and confrontational manner capable of heating up the fragile state of the country.

    There are professional ways to fight corruption without making breaking news out of these, as was exemplified by the previous government. The Goodluck Jonathan government fought corruption using technology and professionalism in several cases. First, Jonathan supported and funded the National Identification Management Commission (NIMC) to check identity fraud, unlike the governments before him. Jonathan supported the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) to checkmate ‘ghost workers’, launched the Treasury Single Account (TSA) to checkmate government bureaucratic corruption, launched the Bank Verification Number (BVN) to checkmate money laundering, supported card readers to checkmate electoral fraud and corruption, presided over the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) activities to checkmate procurement corruption, etc. Although, due to personal selfish political reasons, he later chose to deliberately slow down the implementation processes of these innovations as a way of maintaining political stability; an action which became one of his greatest political weaknesses. Despite the adjudgment of his government as being grossly corrupt, Jonathan provided anti-corruption solutions using technology and professionalism and without creating political enmity through the process. He also got Nigeria’s name on the list of the fastest growing economy in the world.

    Again, I ask, what has President Buhari really done differently in tackling systematic corruption in Nigeria that previous governments before him did not do? The EFCC as it is presently constituted is a defective and reactive institution incapable of reducing corruption. What the EFCC and Mr. President can do is to go after those who have already stolen public funds. What Nigeria needs is a proactive administrative mechanism that actually stops people from stealing, and not an institution that goes after them when they have already stolen. Unfortunately, the present structure of Nigeria’s federalism is incapable of providing such proactive solutions because Nigeria itself is built on a corrupt, skewed and irreconcilable foundation that only thrives on corruption.

    Today, we have a President Buhari and his team of ‘saintly’ technocrats who have not proffered any ingenious new idea but are simply leveraging on existing efforts. Yet, the rhetoric is deafening. Nigerians now celebrate mediocrity to the extent that they see the arrest, detention and unfair prosecution of suspects in corruption cases as an achievement worth accrediting to President Buhari. How did we get here?

    One thing all Nigerians must come to understand is that corruption as it has become in our country is an inevitable byproduct of our defective present system of federalism. Just the way it is natural for goats to eat yam, so it is normal and even legal for Nigerian politicians to steal money under our present skewed ‘feeding bottle’ structure of government. The present style of Nigeria’s federalism is corruption legalised. Nigeria itself is corruption and if you must fight corruption, you must first discard this skewed, flawed, corrupt, unitary ‘feeding bottle’ federalism that we currently practice and agree to restructure Nigeria into a competitive, efficient, productive, competitive, and locally driven True Fiscal Federalism. Only when President Buhari does this can we then know that he genuinely wishes to fight corruption and put Nigeria on the path to greatness. By the way, what can President Buhari do in the states and local governments where over 70 percent of the real corruption takes place? Obviously nothing. As long as we continue with the monthly ritual of sharing oil money at Abuja to lazy, redundant, inefficient and unproductive politicians and their states, we cannot fight corruption in Nigeria! We cannot even reduce it, we can only decide whose turn is it to benefit from corruption. This is simply how we roll in Nigeria under our present defective system.

    In Nigeria, the manner in which politicians (including President Buhari) win elections is corrupt. How the federal government awards contracts, how they decide on who and which contract should be paid for, how to manipulate revenue allocations to shortchange certain states, how they use revenues generated in the beer (alcohol) industry to fund development in Sharia states, how they choose to be selective in probing those who are compromised, the lopsided nature of political appointments, how the money hardworking Lagosians and Lagos State generate is shared to people in other states, etc. All these issues are inevitable corruption arising from our skewed system of federalism and of which President Buhari is a major beneficiary, just like the leaders before him.

    How do we really change things in Nigeria and put an end to systematic corruption?

    First, in a country like Nigeria, you cannot fight corruption by relying on the self-restraint of the leaders. We cannot rely alone on the personal integrity of President Buhari to fight corruption. We must establish some sort of administrative constraints on Nigerian officials to the extent that even if we mistakenly elect a crafty thief to become our leader, he will be unable to manifest his ‘skill’ due to the administrative constraints built into institutions. In order for us to do this and like I have said before, we must first, discard this skewed, flawed, corrupt, unitary ‘feeding bottle’ federalism that we currently practice in Nigeria and agree to ‪restructure Nigeria into a competitive, efficient, productive, competitive, and locally driven ‪‎True Fiscal Federalism.

    The EFCC is only doing its job and it is expected that President Buhari should do his own job by focusing on supervising and saving the Nigerian economy from possible collapse.

    What Nigeria truly needs right now is True Fiscal Federalism and not EFCC, APC, PDP, INEC or even a national budget. Restructure Nigeria and you might have used one stone to kill twenty birds! True Fiscal Federalism will eliminate corruption, promote regional integration, reduce ethnic tension and secession demands, unite Nigerians, promote development and put Nigeria on the path to greatness once again.

    If the funds recovered from the eight month ‘Fighting Corruption’ Project can be used to fund at least 10 percent of the 2016 budget, then President Buhari should continue with the project, but if not, then he should pay more attention to sourcing for revenue to fund the 2016 budget and fix the entire economy.

    The EFCC is only doing its job and it is expected that President Buhari should do his own job by focusing on supervising and saving the Nigerian economy from possible collapse. Nigeria urgently needs diversification and fighting corruption on a daily basis through the media does not diversify the economy”.

      Mr. Career Liar, if you like quote Idi Amin, Lawrence Anini and James Ibori, it didn’t work pre-election and it wouldn’t work now too, your looting masters and those who stole your destiny must be brought to justice. President Buhari campaigned based on his killing corruption and Nigerians voted for him based on that. Keep wailing till kingdom come.

  • ANIMAL Talk?

    1. “The Nigerian military on Sunday confirmed that multiple attacks were carried out on oil installations in the Niger Delta area…The Commander of the Joint Task Force, JTF, Alani Okunlola, who confirmed the attacks, also threatened that community leaders would, henceforth, be held responsible for any attack on the country’s oil and gas facilities in their domains.” –Premium Times January 19, 2016

    QUESTION
    If the so called JTF commander will hold the community leaders responsible for the attacks, may I ask, since 1999 when Boko Haram Islamists have been attacking the infrastructure of Nigeria built with the Niger Delta’s money, why has the confused Major General Alani not held the community leaders in the North responsible?……….
    —————————————————————

    2. We are even aware of one Mallam Abubakar in Kano who personally took his 9yr old daughter to Boko haram as a gift to them for them to prime for suicide bombing in a market. She confessed when her suicide belt refused to go off.

    QUESTION
    Has so called JTF commander in my Niger Delta held Mallam Abubakar responsible for attempted murder, terrorism etc? Aren’t these more criminal offences with capital punishment under the Nigerian constitution? Alani whatever must be yoking. Shouldn’t what is good for the Ducks be good for the Eagles?

You supporters of corruption are coming close to running out of excuses.

      • Jon Lawrence

        Why didn’t someone arrest and charge them then or has Sanusi and El Rufai got any immunity from prosecution then? Is your theory not an indictment of Jonathan as poor leader, if had all the evidence as you claimed to have but did nothing about it?

    President Buhari Has No Capacity To Rule Nigeria. – Bloomberg UK.

    **Nigeria dangerous sliding, investments in all-time low, stock market rated world 3rd-worst & growth slow to 16-year.

    International financial and business news giant, Bloomberg, has expressed serious doubts on the ability of President Muhammad Buhari of Nigeria to turn around Africa’s largest economy and oil producer.

    In a scathing analysis of the over six months of Buhari in office, the news outlet concluded that the country was on a dangerous slide with investments at an all-time low, the stock market rated as the third-worst performing globally within the period, and growth projected to slow to a 16-year low of 3.3 percent.

    In an article, Buhari Bounce Becomes Bust As Nigeria Policies Annoy Investors, the group noted that stocks that soared as investors looked to the former military ruler to reverse decades of economic mismanagement and policy inertia, have all nosed dived and “Now hopes have fizzled in his ability to turn around Africa’s largest economy and oil producer.

    “Money that flowed into stocks and bonds in the West African nation, which McKinsey & Co. says could become one of the world’s 20 biggest economies by 2030, is now fleeing as growth prospects diminish along with oil prices. While Buhari, 72, has prioritized stamping out the graft that has plagued Nigeria since independence from Britain in 1960, policy-making appears as uncertain and haphazard as ever.”
    Quoting Ayodele Salami, who oversees about $500 million of African equities as chief investment officer of London-based Duet Asset Management Ltd., he said the initial euphoria has turned to disillusionment.

I guess those companies are incompetent and as clueless as their employer huh? PT. Doyin Okupe is involved please arrest and prosecute him. Enough of revelations without laudable actions following. It’s as if you people don’t understand messing and tiring it is hearing this same pattern of story every time without seeing anyti been done in that regards. I’m sure I’m not the only one that couldn’t finish reading up that story. It’s getting tiring. Ones I started, what I asked myself is, is this going to end the perpetrators anywhere at all? Is this just to dent their image and never for justice? It’s becoming a platitude. Let’s see the ones on ground punished by the law then we’ll take all these efforts serious. This is one side of the story by the time those ones come with their own story one becomes confused or get better thoughts. But when the needful is not done how do we hear them or get justice in these heinous acts? Gerrahia jaare

This is just a game play between the big boys in the hood, why wud I rant? What if tmrw Dasuki is even picked as Oshiomole’s running mate for APC 2019, will I kill myself? If Tinubu via proxy cud vice this same Buhari( the dead brain disaster tyrant, as he prodded him then) and Fanikayode, speaking from both mouths in support of GEJ( the clueless lobster imbecile of yestd) you shud know these are all politics and noti is alien nor impossible. So why wud I kill myself on top em matter? Ranting is not so close buddy. If Seeing beyond the stage, Stating the obvious, letting my mind rest is tantamount to your definition of ranting, then so be it.

        • Jon Lawrence

          That is the conspiracy theories I am talking about to divert attention or to water down the hunt for corrupt evil men. Where did Oshiomole running for president with Dasuki comes into this discussion? You are asking when last Dasuki was in court? When last did you commented against the likes of Dasuki exploiting of Nigeria judicial system to evade facing trial? Like some one said, they kept ranting, mixing unrelated issues just to water down corruption. The tactic of corrupt men and women and their supporters had always been to label everybody as corrupt and claim that everyone is like them, therefore they should be left alone or they will start accusing their accusers, believing that counter attack is their first line of defence.

    • otunne steve gofrey

      Nigerians are yet to hear the truth. Few days ago EFCC attempted to force PDP spokesman Metuh to sign an already written confessional statement not made by him. His refusal gave birth to EFCC hurrying to court the next day with assemblage of Metuh’s political enemies as their witnesses due public outcry. All their witnesses were ex- PDP members now in APC including ‘the Araraumes’ or their companies minus the banks.

      This is undemocratic, sadistic, uncivilized and anti godliness in the face of any righteous and God fearing religion, only the Bokon harramics and their likes rejoice in falsehood or shape the mood of Nigerians with half done bread baked in the oven of political victory, obtained from the altar of matured political antecedent.

      It is questionable that 90% of APC saints today were PDP members yesterday but the war on corruption keep evading them. Buhari government have shown that APC membership washes whiter than snow while PDP membership breeds thieves and robbers.

      Justice is on trial in Nigeria. There will always be a tomorrow.

    • Jon Lawrence

      If you are tired of hearing the revelation, don’t click or read it. The title was clear enough for you to see before you click and read. What moral support have you given towards the prosecution those arrested and charge other than snip remarks, innuendos and conspiracy theories? Or are you one of those that used the same mouth to call it a witch hunt?
      What exactly do people like you want? You claimed not to like corruption but any time you heard any new revelation you call it propaganda, any time any one is charged you labelled it a witch hunt, selective and every other nonsense.
      Doing nothing against corruption is no longer an option. If Jonathan had been selective like Buhari as most corruption supporters made us to believe, at least we could have gotten somewhere now but he did nothing, rather he manured corruption.

      • Jon Lawrence

        No they weren’t. I remembered parties known as ACN, ANPP, CPC,half of APGA etc, these are the 90% of APC. The justice that are on trial are pinhead supporters of corruption like you, who kept diverting attention instead of facing the fact of what the last government had done to you and your children. If APC becomes like them then they will get the PDP treatment but right now everybody should join hand and deal with any criminal fingered out, not making useless excuses for them.

        • otunne steve gofrey

          It is sad you are still sleeping and so seeing ‘supposed’ war on corruption without reasoning nor definition. I’m surprised you agreed that everyone and every acts of last administration were meshed with corruption or only none decamped PDP members were corrupt.
          Your failure to accept beside above parties that PDP de-campees constituted chunk of APC saints today, including ten leprous PDP fingers (governors) that one of them lead the senate smacks unconcern for truth, equity and justice. These ten PDP leprous fingers now in APC were corruption free because they decamped and pitched tent in APC.
          The point, I will not cease to make is – War on corruption should be holistic and all encompassing. it should include all that worked / served last administration including those now wearing APC corruption cleansing regalia.
          Nigerians have noted that Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s government is on trial by the present administration and this is an interesting precedent. This is more interesting as those being tried are only those that refused to de camp to APC,also those that comes to courts on chains and handcuffs are from a section of the country.
          My worries and crave for decent or fair distribution of justice and/or against further laying of divisive precedence is both history related and my investment on this nomenclature named Nigeria part of which can never be forgotten.

    I knew itttttttttttt. This fat head is in trouble as well. There was no way he was in it for not making money. That was why they were making noise about the election. It was about what each of them can get. Jonathan was too dumb to see it. These folks should end up in jail.

    Nigerians are yet to hear the truth. Few days ago EFCC attempted to
    force PDP spokesman Metuh to sign an already written confessional
    statement not made by him. His refusal gave birth to EFCC hurrying to
    court the next day with assemblage of Metuh’s political enemies as their
    witnesses due public outcry. All their witnesses were ex- PDP members
    now in APC including ‘the Araraumes’ or their companies minus the
    banks.

    This is undemocratic, sadistic, uncivilized and anti
    godliness in the face of any righteous and God fearing religion, only
    the Bokon harramics and their likes rejoice in falsehood or shape the
    mood of Nigerians with half done bread baked in the oven of political
    victory, obtained from the altar of matured political antecedent.

    It is questionable that 90% of APC saints today were PDP members
    yesterday but the war on corruption keep evading them. Buhari government
    have shown that APC membership washes whiter than snow while PDP
    membership breeds thieves and robbers.

    This work of investigative journalism should be awarded a prize. It shows that Nigeria as a country that wants its voice to be heard and respected in Africa has come of age. To document this far is a credit for journalists defending the 4th Estate establishment pride. The agency scaled and put across to the public is not one easy to reach, because it is over-fortified. Nigeria is learning the democracy language relevant for investigative journalism and freedom of the press. In that case the samples: US, Britain and the rest of them, I am sure if they see and read this sorrowful article will applaud the lessons given as not being wasted. The result is impressive with the daring of this journalist. From the look of things, it still seems this is a scratch of the surface, so this kind of investigative work must continue to get to the roots and understand the problems and questions, because without doing that the truth will not be known and if that is to supply the base for solution only the truth will make possible. Nigeria at cross-roads is not what will uplift and sustain the nation. From the look of things the nation just has to be grateful that the time has come to examine the roots of the country’s dilemma. Buhari is good at it, so let’s put sentiments and North-South dichotomy aside and face the battle to put things right and heal the nation. For Buhari as a man at the helms of things in Nigeria we have to than the former UN Secretary General who mediated the election process that so overwhelmingly should that Nigeria was to change if not hell would descend on her. I for one thank him: Mr Kofi Anan. I commented on his reconciliation work and assembly of Nigerian elders for that purpose including Jonathan – then President and the vibrant Opposition Leader then, now the President. (Thank you again Kofi Anan). My comment between 4014 and 2015 was wiped off. Threat horrible by nature began, my internet lines were ruined – where I live everything happened day and night – very ghostly-like. I have complained shocked that this happens and still continues in Finnish government air space! What has gone wrong, when before the change of government some men were toasting over on business contracts. Besides the technological, there is also the cult-like, the evil is run by unseen hands. My story is special because I have also commented on couple of Security policy related journalistic articles on Nigeria as a diaspora. I only know what I have had to suffer un-explainably, when the good thing I have done is only help. Where I live is still ragging and I am on fire. Nigerians are no more good-spirited and honest with security definition and practice. If the battle to correct is not fought now it might be too late in this crude world. Give Buhari a hearing!
