Court seizes Orubebe’s property for false asset declaration

ORUBEBE1

The Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, on Tuesday found a former Minister of Niger Delta affairs, Godsday Orubebe, guilty of false declaration of asset.

‎The tribunal, chaired by Danladi Umar, declared its judgement, seizing the asset said to have been exempted in Mr. Orubebe’s declaration form, but placed no other penalties against him.

Mr. Orubebe was accused of failing to declare an asset he acquired while in office as minister of the Niger Delta.

The asset, plot 2057, Asokoro district, Abuja was aquired barely a month before the end of his tenure and traced to him, but exempted in his asset declaration form.

Mr. Orubebe said he had put the said asset up for sale before the expiration of his tenure.

But the tribunal found Mr. Orubebe guilty of possession of the said plot, stressing that prosecution proved its case beyond doubts.

In his ruling, Mr. Umar decided that the arguments put forward by the prosecution were valid and thier documents admitted in envidence.

“‎I hereby seize, on behalf of the federal government, the property known as plot 2057.

The federal government had in October last year filed a three-count charge against, Mr. Orubebe but reduced them to one in March, this year.

The former minister is known for his ardent support for former president Goodluck Jonathan.

    EFCC Seizes Ex-Oil Minister Diezani’s N3.58bn Abuja Home—————————————-because of her Ijaw tribal Marks

    The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has seized a mansion worth N3.58bn ($18m at the official exchange rate of N199 to a dollar) in the Asokoro area of Abuja allegedly belonging to the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke. The acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, said this during an interview with Al-Jazeera, a Qatar-based news network. Magu, in the interview, monitored by our correspondent on Monday, noted that the items in the house included jewellery, furniture, and a bulletproof gym worth about $2m.

      The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has seized a house worth N1.5bn belonging to a former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa also because of his Ijaw tribal Marks—————–.

      EFCC discovered the properties, which Dudafa had not been able to explain where he got the money to buy them—. Already the House has been sold to the Fulanis from Mali in Aso rock.

      The commission discovered a mansion in the Agungi area of the Lekki-Epe Expressway, allegedly belonging to Dudafa, said to be worth over N300m.

    Bukola Saraki: For whom the bell tolls….

    BUKOLA SARAKI should know he’s next to come under the hammer for assets seizure

    by the rejuvenated Code of Conduct Tribunal, but in his own case, Bukola Saraki will

    also be disqualified from holding public office for ten years, in line with the constitution,

    for the similar offence of assets’ concealment which the law prohibits in very clear words.

    • kusanagi

      Let’s be clear. NOTHING will happen to Bukola Saraki. As much as I hate saying that and despite Buhari being President the govt and the justice system is still woefully corrupt. Those in Buhari’s circle are neck deep in corruption. Buratai is neck deep in corruption. Buhari’s ministers from Fayemi, to Fashola to Amaechi are hugely corrupt.

      Saraki like Tinubu will buy his way out. Buhari’s done little to change the judiciary so there are many a judge that can still be bought.

  • kusanagi

    Orubebe must be thinking if only I’d kept my mouth shut during the elections. Now he’s paying the price. Lest not forget how he tried to create a state of anarchy in this country.

      The case of Certificate less Bingo Buhari refusing to declare his assets as it relates to the sprawling Asokoro lakeside mansion located at number 9, Udo Udoma Street, Asokoro, Abuja, as revealed by the News Media in Nigeria, is yet to be investigated by EFCC and the Code of conduct Bureau. Simply because Buhari and Aisha Buhari are not Ijaws like Dame Jonathan, Deizani former oil minister–Dudafa or common Orubebe an Ijaw man——!!!!!!!!!!!!—Tribalism again abi–It is the truth–nothing but the truth!!!¨—–as Tinubu——who won two Super sonic jets—-if it is a lie¨!

      Investigations by Nigerian Journalists unveiled that Bingo Buhari’s hidden property situated at a choice location in Asokoro beside an exotic lake few yards away from the Aso Rock Presidential Villa fence, till date remains an untouchable issue in Nigeria. Simply because of his Fulani tribal marks. If this particular property had been owned by an Ijaw man or woman from the Niger Delta–it would have long been seized and sold to either a Fulani or a Yoruba Minister-

      Since his inauguration by the CIA on May 29, heavy security has been deployed around the area surrounding the property. However, Reporters at the risk of their lives managed to take photographs of the sprawling triple-duplex property –which is now making the rounds on the internet.In Nigeria if u are Ijaw and from the Niger Delta woe unto your soul-and your properties—even the ones in your village like that of Tompolo are not spared by the Fulanis and Yoruba! But if Fulani or Yoruba-U are free to steal as much as u can–no qualms-Just like the yet to be investigated Siemens and Halliburton bribery scandal which involves members of the TRIPOD- ati the wife of President–Bingo Buhari-The case still remains in the dark—–including that of Mrs. Abacha and Turai both former first ladies.

      Ibo man for Buhari abi—-President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, finally, disclosed details of their declared assets Thursday, bowing to growing public pressure for the new government to do so within its first 100 days.

      Mr. Buhari had N30 million in his bank account before taking office on May 29, while Mr. Osinbajo had N94 million and $900,000, the presidency said in a statement Thursday, quoting details from the asset declaration forms filed by the two leaders at the Code of Conduct Bureau.

      The president owns five houses in Kaduna, Daura, Kano , and has two undeveloped plots of land, one in Kano and the other in Port Harcourt, his office said.

      Mr. Buhari also has farms, an orchard, ranch, livestock including 270 cattle, 25 sheep, five horses, a variety of birds and a number of economic trees, according to the statement.

      He has an unstated “number of cars”.

      Did Jonathan declare his wife’s $31Million fraudulent accounts, the N10Billon hotel in Yenegua and other hotels in Port-harcourt and Abuja in his asset declaration form, when he was voted out of power in 2015? If not tell Mama Peace to withdraw the case against EFCC and Skye Bank or risk losing everything like Orubebe that has just lost a plot in Abuja.

      GEJ never declared his assets. . he said ‘I don’t give a damn’. A sitting presido saying that about a constitutional requirement – speaks volume.

    Bukola Saraki is a goner

    Till date,
    President Buhari does not pick or answer any phone call from Bukola Saraki
    and does not answer or reply Bukola Saraki’s letters. On those few occasions
    you see them photographed together it is pro forma. That means OFFICIAL
    FUNCTIONS where an incumbent Senate President must also be present.
    Otherwise President Buhari has had nothing to do with Bukola Saraki

    Of course, you are quite right
    on the other points you made. Nobody out there thinks that President
    Buhari is fighting any corruption. What people are saying is that President
    Buhari is fighting for SELECTIVE JUSTICE as rule of law. He goes after targeted
    opponents and pampers fanatical thieves within his cabinet of Ministers. But I must
    disagree with your saying nothing will happen to Bukola Saraki.

    From all indications Bukola Saraki is a goner. President Buhari’s own
    interest makes it mandatory that Bukola Saraki be got rid of as quickly as
    possible. There are even grounds to press that point anyway and that’s what the
    Buhari government is pressing it at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

    • Justicia

      THE ONLY THING STANDING BETWEEN BUKOLA SARAKI AND JUDGMENT DAY
      IS THE DELAY BEING USED BY BUKOLA SARAKI’s LAWYERS ON QUESTIONING
      ONE WITNESS FOR OVER ONE MONTH. THE TRIBUNAL CHAIRMAN MUST STOP
      THIS NONSENSE AND ISSUE A TIME SCHEDULE FOR ALL CROSS-EXAMINATION.

    • kusanagi

      I must respectfully disagree about your take on Saraki. I think his case will out last Buhari’s tenure as President. He has the money and friends to stall the case.

      But only time will tell. I hope you’re right.

    Godsday Orubebe is not a good example. What he did cannot be recommended to future Nigerians.

    His conduct is dishonest and he should accept the verdict of the court as deserved reward for fraud.

      The mumu Ijaw man must have bought the land from an Ibo man

  • satanic touch of bingo buhari

    The EFCC has as a matter of fact, outlived it usefullness to its

    orignal founder,OBJ.

    OBJ is nomore in power,and therefore EFCC must now be dismantled.

    The Chief,Olusegun Obasanjo,our erstwhile President, had in

    his time, used the EFCC to hound his political foes,real or imagined.

    But today,our rogue Fulani President,Muhammadu Buhari has

    reconstituted the EFCC as one of his Jhadist Institutions, like

    his Miyetti Cattlle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria, and its

    ramapaging Fulani Herdsmen, to intimidate and oppress us

    indigenous Nigerians.

    The EFCC is now used by the Caliphate of Sokoto in its grand

    plan to Islamise and make our fatherland its Usman Dan Fodio

    Estate.

    Our Former First Lady,Dame Patience Jonathan,is a daughter of Rivers State and therefore,one of our Oil Princesses.She got

    married to a Bayelsan Oil Princes, Prof. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan,a former Governor of his State,an erstwhile Vice President of our Republic, and also our EX-President.

    At this juncture,it appers as if the current usurpers of power in

    the polity,are carrying their purported fight against corruption

    too far.

    When has there ever been such a harrasment of our ex- First Families in this country, like in this case of President Jonathan’s?

    Her Majesty,Patience Jonathan is not only the oil Queen of

    Rivers and Bayelsa, but also of our entire Eastern Nigeria.

    She is an untouchable.Period.
