Seized $9.3 million arms money: Nigeria’s Presidency defends Oritsejafor

Although his private jet was used to illegally ferry $9.3 million cash to South Africa, the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Ayo Oritsejafor, did no wrong, the presidency has said.

The Senior Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Communication, Doyin Okupe, stated this on Sunday in Abuja while addressing journalists.

“Oritsejafor has no business in this matter,” he said. “It is true that he owns the aircraft but there are over 200 private Nigerians who have jets. Apart from those who use it frequently, some give it out to get some money and defray some of the costs. If you put your jet down, you pay money and parking charges every day.”

The presidential aide reiterated Mr. Oritsejafor’s statement that he had given the aircraft to a private company to manage.

“He gave the private jet to a company to manage. The company is handing it and these people gave out the plane that is available. What has this to do with Oritsejafor?

“If I have many cars at the airport and decide to give one to car hire services. And he decides to carry somebody having Indian hemp, will you link it up with the man who gave it out?” he said.

Mr. Okupe claimed that anyone criticising Mr. Oritsejafor’s role in the shady deal was not giving due respect to the office the latter holds as CAN president.

“Most Nigerians do not also respect the sensibilities of other people,” he said. “Oritsejafor is the President of CAN and head of all Christians in Nigeria who is representing at least 50 per cent of people in this country. When it comes to a man like that, people should be cautious and circumspect.”

The presidential aide also claimed those linking Mr. Oritsejafor, a well known ally of President Jonathan, to the scandal were being mischievous and only playing politics with the issue.

“The linking of Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor is the most unfortunate thing,” he said. “To put the very respectable, responsible, honest and sincere President of CAN in this matter is the extreme of mischief. It just shows you what Nigerians do; they go to any extent to politicize everything and every day.

“What bothers me here is the manner with people want to bring down Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor on this matter. It is pure absurdity.”

Mr. Okupe also defended the federal government’s handling of the saga, saying all information about it could not be disclosed because of the security implications.

“The Nigerian government cannot share all information about the issues because it is a security matter. It is an issue which we cannot just bring to public domain,” he said.

“I am surprised that Nigerians want to discuss security issues openly and publicly when a war is still going on.

“These are very serious national security affairs and running a government is not the same thing as running a Shoprite, where everything is on the table and on display.”

Despite that moving cash of such magnitude) into a foreign country, including Nigeria, is illegal, and despite South Africa’s insistence on holding on to the money due to the illegality, Mr. Okupe insisted the transaction was not “shady.”
“There is nothing shady about the South African deal and the Office of the NSA (National Security Adviser) has done very well.

“Because at the appropriate time, they came in that, ‘yes, this money belongs to us and this was what it was meant for.’ That explanation itself was okay. There is no hanky panky on this matter,” he said.

After the $9.3 million cash was seized, another $5.7 million was also seized by South African authorities as it was to be wired by a South African firm to Nigeria.

The Nigerian government has said that like the first, second sum was also to purchase arms from South Africa; and that it was being returned because the private company it paid the money to was not duly registered in South Africa.

Despite criticism from Nigeria and abroad that further trailed the second transaction, Mr. Okupe said it was a normal deal.

“A company was mandated to do a national security assignment for the Federal Government of Nigeria and because of the extant laws in South Africa, that company was unable to deliver its contractual agreement with the Nigerian government.

“The company now wants a refund, which is normal”, Mr. Okupe said.

Since the scandals broke, the federal government and Mr. Oritsejafor have come under heavy criticisms for their roles in the shady deals.

Some of those who have criticised both parties include a former CAN President and Catholic Cardinal, Olubunmi Okogie, and the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC.

The APC, apart from asking the federal government to come clean on the deals, also asked the government to disclose the identity of the two Nigerians that were in the cash-stuffed private jet.

There have been reports that an ex-Niger Delta militant and ally of President Jonathan, Asari Dokubo, was one of the two Nigerians.

Mr. Okupe did not disclose the identity of both men.

  • anonymous

    Only a criminal like okupe can be so naive

    • Tawandah incommunicado

      Already Nigerians are aware that some idiots would like to rope in the Clergy gentleman at any cost so go ahead and live in your alternate world of fantasies.You cannot really understand that private jets are leased out to recoup some running costs instead of living them at the hanger to accumulate fees.

      • endingNaija

        Tawandah, we know the man of God -Ayo Oritsejafor is a business man. That is fine . But tell us the names of the two Nigerians involved in this criminality-full stop.

        • Tawandah incommunicado

          This case is still under investigation by the South African authorities,why jump to a conclusion that it was really an “illegality” ?

          • endingNaija

            Tawandah, So why was the name of the Israeli DISCLOSED and the names of the Nigerians remain UNDISCLOSED? My question is not rocket science oooo, it is a simple straight question. So answer

          • Tawandah incommunicado

            As long as the occupants are in the custody of the South African government,there is a reason why their names are not being mentioned……suppose they are eventually found innocent ?

          • endingNaija

            But there were three launderers. One Israeli and two Nigerians. The name of the Israeli was revealed and the names of the two Nigerians are hidden. How reasonable is this to you? Does this not show that there is something fishy? Why reveal the name of the Israeli and hide the names of the Nigerians? Did they not commit same offense? You are all involved in criminal and illegal act. You all have something to hide. Your presidency and his “Pastor” are in deep mess. If President Jonathan thinks this will go away, he must be kidding.

          • Wähala

            Don’t worry, the Zulus will eventually charge the criminals to court, that’s when the GON will be required to produce the Nigerians they bailed from jail… Dumbo knows his ahss is on Bunsen Burner!

          • Wähala

            Who told you they’re still in custody? Liar!
            Asari was freed by your corrupt moron with a fake Indiana Jones hat…
            Ask him to name those Nigerians if he’s got balls. Why was the Jew named and not NSA’s escorts?
            Thief. Keep defending evil, shows the character you’re made of… same as Deri Orbuka ati Redeem!

          • Wähala

            It is illegal because the magistrate specifically said they seized the money as “proceeds from illegal transactions”…what are proceeds? If it were legitimate business, the Zulus will not be investigating. Use your head for once!

          • Tawandah incommunicado

            South Africa is a democracy where “due process” must run it’s course ! A “seizure” can only take place after due process ie court process,at the moment the funds are held by the state while investigations continue.

          • Wähala

            If the deals were legal, why are investigations continuing? Keep contradicting yourself… it makes you look real stup*d. Go back to PBN, this site is for intellectuals, not sycophants on pay-per-comment… Dindirin!

          • Tawandah incommunicado

            Everywhere is home !

      • endingNaija

        (i) Who owns the jet-Ayo Oritsejafor or his church? (ii) What is the jet used for -to do business or to do charity? (iii) what are the names of the two Nigerians involved in this particular $9.3m transfer? (iv) why did Okupe waste our time and get paid to launder Ayo Oritsejafor while Okupe did not mention the names of the two Nigerians who were part of this criminality.? Answer.

        • Tawandah incommunicado

          The right to ownership of the said jet lies with a company associated with the clergy man,the jet was legally leased out therefore he did not have the right of possession as at the time the plane was detained in South-Africa.
          When a plane is leased out on a long-term basis,all responsibilities arising from any engagements by the leasing company cannot be blamed on the company which leased out the plane.
          The names of whoever was the occupants is an affair to be sorted out by the the two governments involved ie South Africa and Nigeria,they must have very tenable reasons for keeping those names out of the public eye.
          There has been no case of money laundering levelled against the occupants of the jet so stop over-reaching and insinuating falsehoods !!

          • endingNaija

            Who OWNS the jet? Who gave the jet out to Ayo Oritsejafor? Did Ayo Oritsejafor buy the jet? Was the jet donated anonymously by anonymous members of Ayo’s church to Pastor Ayo oritsejafor? What are the names of the two Nigerians involved in the criminality? why was the name of the Israeli disclosed and the names of the Nigerians are hidden?

          • Tawandah incommunicado

            As long as you cannot employ logic in your comments it may be unreasonable to continue ! The original ownership of the jet is outside the subject matter it has never been in doubt that the jet is owned by a company in which the clergy man has interests in.

          • endingNaija

            The man of God once said the jet was donated to him for God’s work. Right? So (i) under what law did Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor register his church? (ii) Does that law allow him to make profit? (iii) Did he register his church as a business company or as a non profit organization? (iV) why did man of God say the jet was donated to him by anonymous members of his church? If the ownership of the jet is out of the matter so as a man of God you can make your money from any source and it is “Godly” to do this so far as you shout halleluyah? So how he got the jet does not matter even if it is shrouded in secrecy. Right ? Answer.

          • Wähala

            …controlling interest in. Do you know what that means?

          • Tawandah incommunicado

            “Interest” or “controlling interest” makes no difference in this case,what really matters is the fact that a company is an independent entity in the eyes of the law,that is why in bankruptcy cases, a company can go bankrupt but the Directors may still not be made to pay back the debts incurred by the company from their personal funds !!

          • Wähala

            Makes a big different if you know what share value is…
            Controlling interest is over 51% shares of a company, while interest could be anything from “passing interest” to 20% stakes in a company. Simpl put, Oletsejafor owns the company he leased the church’s jet to at a cost that he did not pay taxes on… a violation of relevant laws!
            Mugu with a shining badge!

          • Wähala

            Under the law, the jet was not even supposed to be leased out, stop making an ahss of yourself…
            Ask SAN, Femi Falana, he has given Oletsejafor time to come clean or…

          • Tawandah incommunicado

            Falana has clearly stated that the Government and the Pastor have no case to answer,he even advised the government to sue the independent company which was given the contract to procure the weapons as it were…you are clearly not up to date……Olodo !!

      • Wähala

        The problem here are two-fold…
        Oletsejafor wons the company he leased the jet to…
        “Pastoral jets” cannot be leased out or used for profit-making adventures without paying taxes…

        • Tawandah incommunicado

          So he is not allowed to own or have interests in another company because he is clergy ?….empty skull !! The jet was leased out from one company to another,it never belonged to any church !!

    • endingNaija

      Okupe is not naive. Okupe works in the presidency and he is paid to do this job. He is part of the criminality around us. Cant you see how Okupe failed to talk about the two Nigerian money launderer involved in this criminality?

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        Thank you, endingNaija.

        I was just going to state that too!

        Can you imagine that a civil servant, paid from the public purse, is here defending a private citizen’s complicity in illegalities because he is the President’s crony?

  • africa

    Well meaning Nigerians know it was a campaign of calumny against the CAN President,Papa Ayo Oritsejafor. He has been vindicated.

    • endingNaija

      by who?

    • Vin Kay

      I thought CAN executive was not convened to ratify the decision to ‘lease’ Pst Oritsejafor’s jet. He did all he did on behalf of himself, not even his church members who ‘donated’ the jet to him for evangelism- related work. If this is so, let the pastor carry his cross, not Christians in general

  • endingNaija

    Mr. Doyin Okupe and Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, there three person involved in the illegal transfer of $9.3m in LIQUID CASH IN A PRIVATE PLANE to South African from Nigeria. (ii) On of them is an Israeli, and the name has been disclosed, the name was actually disclosed very quickly after the illegality was discovered. (ii) the names of the two other Nigerians remina shrouded in SECRECY. So Mr. Doyin Okupe and Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, can you please disclose the names of the two Nigerians? Doyin Okupe, it is ridiculous that you will spend so much time calling press conference on this matter and paid by Nigerian tax payers yet you fail do a simple thing which is crucial to unravel the whole saga-that simple thing is TELL US THE NAMES OF THE TWO NIGERIANS INVOLVED IN THIS ILLEGALITY. You can call million press conferences to cover things up-they pale into insignificance if you fail to mention the two Nigerians involved in this clear illegality and criminal act. What gave all those involved in this criminal act out is that you mentioned the name of the Israeli . Why? But you refuse to mention the names of the two Nigerians. You can continue to delude yourselves in the presidency. Nigerians are wiser. Stop fooling us.

    • africa

      Don’t you mention the CAN President name anymore because the authorities in Nigeria and the Press in South Africa have said there are confirmed documented evidence of the deal. You will know the names of those involved at the appropriate time,afterall what have you done with the names like; Elrufai that destroyed peoples properties in Abuja and turned around to acquire their land in broad day light. What of those that stole the pension scheme money, etc. God will judge the evil one in due time. El Rufai has already lost 2 of his children in recent time and himself will not last because of his wickedness- sponsoring Boko Haram. Watch it.

      • endingNaija

        Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor OWNS the jet that was to be used to reportedly IMPORT ARMS. So? You, okey, President Jonathan, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor and your poor messenger must DISCLOSE to Nigerians the names of the two Nigerians you people used. Why HIDE their names?

Drunkard, I hope the Editors on PT notice your dirty self and ban your electronic fingerprint from their site forever… Dindirin!

  • bulltron10

    Who are you fooling? So it is normal for religious leaders to own jets from shady sources? And it is normal for such jets to be used to buy arms? It is very normal to launder money. Let’s even assume your claim to be true, why is a known terrorist hiring a plane to buy weapons for the Nigerian government ? Why is the US not selling you arms. The whole world can see that this administration is rogue.

  • Vin Kay

    If Mr Okupe TRULY believes in his heart that it is possible to do that kind of ‘assignment’ involving importation of bombs and other stuffs into Nigeria with the current security challenges the country is facing, and without the knowledge of Pst Oritsejafor, then I am sorry for Nigeria on the competence of those who manage the affairs of this country. If his intention is to play politics and win sympathies of a section of the country then he try.

    Does it mean if anyone with connection to the useless BHaram group had contacted those guys he ‘leased’ his supposed ‘private’ jet to, they would have obliged them because it is a business- and they are in business to make money. Abi?

  • Okey

    Peple baying for Oritsejafor’s head would be disappointed to read the following position later adopted by Mr Femi Falkana as published in The Nation newspaper, Sunday, 11th September, 2014 Posted by: Adebisi Onanuga:

    – $15 million Arms Deal: Sue Contractors, Recover Funds, Falana Tells FG
    Lagos lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), has advised the Federal Government to sue the Israeli and two Nigerians arrested in South Africa in connection with the $15million arms deal with a view to recovering
    the money.

    He said in a statement issued in Lagos yesterday that there is substantial evidence to prove that the suspects, alleged to be contractors, breached the terms of the deal for the supply of the arms.

    “To that extent the Federal Government is perfectly entitled to sue them with a view to recovering the entire contract sum of $15 million.

    “As independent contractors, they were awarded contracts for the supply of arms by the Federal Government and paid accordingly.

    “It is indubitably clear that the suspects were negligent for failing to conduct due diligence …………” –
    The above position clearly indicates that both the federal govt and the owner of the aircraft were in no fraudulent engagement. Falana took the above position after politics gave way to patriotism, himself having led the APC propaganda of money laundering. Political thugs would besiege Dr. Okupe here for destruction but like Falana did, they should not allow politics of 2015 to chase away patriotism from them.

    • endingNaija

      You must be kidding me!!. Let me tell that Falana is PUTTING AYO ORITSEJAFOR AND PRESIDENT JONATHAN ON THE SPOT. If the elephants are hiding, then go after the ants!!! See? Falana is daring President Jonathan’s govt to sue the Israeli and the two Nigerians. We all know that the Nigerian govt WILL NEVER TRY IT. Why? THE TWO NIGERIANS AND THE ISRAELI WILL SPILL THE BEAN-I.E. SING LIKE BIRDS!!! Let me hint you on what is NOT rocket science but simple common sense. Why did the same govt REVEAL the identity of the Israeli but same govt IS WITHOLDING THE IDENTITIES OF THE TWO NIGERIANS? So Okey, answer. Just answer my simple question ooooo I beg, do not blow grammar.

      • Okey

        Since you know them, please reveal their names !

        • endingNaija

          The onus is on you Okey, President Jonathan, Pastor Oritsejafor and your parrot and poor messenger Doyin Okupe to reveal the names. It is your thing not that of us Nigerians!!!! Na una get jet now-abi?

  • Watchtower

    WHY PASTOR ORITSEJAFOR MUST GO!

    “Here, we are dealing with Pastor Ayo as the leader of Christian Association of Nigeria [CAN]

    – the largest umbrella of Nigerian Christians. He is condemned to be judged by
    secular standards, which, in this case, demands that, having found himself in a
    quagmire which calls to question the sanctity of his office, he must step down
    to redeem his image.”

    “This is without prejudice to the on-going investigation on the matter.
    Denials of his culpability by the Federal Government, CAN officials, and,
    his own recent defence, do nothing to reduce the moral burden this whole
    saga places on his shoulders. As the titular leader of Christians in Nigeria,
    there’s now a serious crisis of confidence on his leadership and he ought to
    respond to it by resigning from his exalted position.”

    “Not that it is a sin to be the President’s pal, but when
    such relationship becomes provocatively patronizing, or self-serving, it is
    unacceptable. The pastor (Oritsejafor) does not show restraint in the way he
    goes about, publicly hobnobbing with the President as if he is the Chaplain of
    Aso Rock. This certainly has compromised the integrity of his office as CAN
    President and his latest incident is just the climax of embarrassing incidents
    we can’t tolerate any longer. Considering the collateral damage Pastor Ayo’s
    close relationship with the President has done to the Christian community, it
    is fit and proper for the pastor to resign immediately as CAN President to
    salvage what remains of the battered image of the association.”

  • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

    What is amazing is that APC do not want to talk about Mr Sambo Dasuki, the NSA, who made those two transactions. The NSA is the only person who has admitted to these transactions and said they are legal. Rather than tackling the NSA, APC and their hirelings are chasing shadows. Trying to stretch the truth to rope in a preferred target. WHERE IS ANY SINGLE MENTION OF MR DASUKI IN THIS?

    • Uzoma John

      Why are you trying to divert the attention to the NSA? Who appointed the NSA? Who does he work for? For your information, the bulk stops at Oga Jona’s desk. Why are you guys always wanting to circumvent the truth at all times? Who does the NSA takes orders from if not from Jonathan? If the same NSA had done a commendable thing, Jona will quickly rush and take the glory (without mentioning the NSA) like he is currently doing on Ebola crisis. What a country, what a people and what a way to reason?

      • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

        To the contrary, I am not diverting attention but actually guiding the debate. If the head of the agency said the transaction was legal, a reasonable mind will tackle the head of the agency, not second parties to the transaction. Let us put it this way. If Mr A ask Messrs B and C to help buy a gun for him. My immediate concern will be Mr A. Because if Mr A has a legal right to the gun, then it is a waste of time, to question Mr B and C. Conversely, If Mr A’s order was illegal, then the role of any accomplice(s) becomes relevant.
        Do you now understand why it is APC that is diverting attention from the real point.

        • Uzoma John

          APC has nothing to do with NSA, as an opposition political party. Get that. It’s all about the government of President Goodluck Jonathan and it’s excesses. Since Oga Jona has not said anything about it, talkless of asking the NSA to resign means he okayed the transaction and fully in the know. In sane clime, the NSA would have tendered his resignation, if not, the President that appointed him has no option than to tell him to resign. But has Oga Jona come out to condemn the NSA? You can now see reason with APC for attacking the President who kept mum with all these shameless acts being in the open. NSA has nothing to do with this. It’s all about Oga Jona. Let him receive the criticism as he would want to be praised. The problem here is, Nigeria leaders don’t even understand the meaning of leadership. They think is a jamboree. Jonathan has always got it wrong. I am, as an individual, very disappointed with him.

          • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

            please re-read the post you replied. I have only said the first debate here should be whether the transaction was illegal. Be mindful that a secret transaction is not by itself illegal just by its secrecy. It may be that the transaction is illegal but we don’t know that because rather than querying the NSA office, the APC is pursuing tangential targets for political purpose. In other to criticise intelligently, you must have your facts. The private jet of Pastor Ayo ought no to be the focus here until the primary question has been answered.

          • detective

            The question on whether the transaction is legal or not is sacrosanct, because we already know that the South African government will not siez the money if it was legal. Ok let me ask you, who do u want us to fine out the truth from? from the criminals or from the paid liars?

        • detective

          So Mr Jonathan should be left alone for claiming the responsibility of illegal and atrocious act? Na wawoo!You can’t bit me and stop me from sobbing, if I so wish I ll cry even like baby.

  • I Hate Sycophant Truly

    Okupe defence does not add up at all. Pls tell him to try again, bcos we have learned people in Nigeria. If some use your car to rob and the person is not found, the first suspent is the owner of the car. The case at hand take the face of the robbery mentioned above.

    • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

      Then the joke is on you if that’s how you reason.

      • I Hate Sycophant Truly

        That’s how I reason bcos the law makes me to reason that way. If you think the law is not real give your car out to someone to use if you have one, so that the person will use it to do unlawful thing, then you will see what would happen. Don’t be petty in the defense of undefenseable.

        • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

          So under the law, if my neighbour borrowed my machete for a lawful purpose, ie farming and tomorrow I learnt that he killed another with it. Under your law, I am guilty of the murder?

          • I Hate Sycophant Truly

            If you have a matchet known by your name, pls lent it out and let the person use it to kill and you will see what would happen. An accomplice go beyond physical presence. Even the cloth you put on, if people have identified such with you if used unlawfully, you are the first suspect until proven otherwise. Bcos people will say I always see Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa wearing this cloth and you will be the first suspect.

          • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

            You have me laughing. Dats all.

          • I Hate Sycophant Truly

            I hope you continue laughing and not die in ignorance. That’s what the law proscribed and cannot be coloured by political gimmisks or charlatan.

          • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

          • I Hate Sycophant Truly

            Both laws of the south and north captured this. In the Criminal code and Penal code that defines and control our activities.

          • endingNaija

            Where did you get that machete from? The source is crucial. And do you -as “Pastor” Oritsejafor- have two explanations of the source of your machete/jet? 2013-“my machete/jet was given me by “anonymous” members of my church/village”. 2014 “I just have a machete/jet and I lease it”!!! Oga redeem na mani_kay na akpos1 na mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa na “the truth” water don pass gari for our dear “Pastor”.

          • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

            Gather your thoughts and follow me. The ‘machete’ or ‘ jet’ here is not the ‘crime’. The crime is ‘murder’ or ‘illegal arms deal’. If the ‘murder’ or ‘arms deal’ is lawful. It then follows that the ‘machete’ or ‘jet’ becomes ‘irrelevant’. That is why it is very important to establish from the NSA that the arms deal is illegal before Pastor Ayo or operators of the jet becomes relevant. I hope you will reply logically.

          • endingNaija

            So if Pastor LIED about his machete/jet that is fine. Right? And Pastor will open his “Godly” mouth to preach in church about heaven!!! How am I to ever believe Pastor Oritsejafor is he has been exposed as a fundamental LIAR given his LIES about the ownership of his machete/jet? How am I to believe that given that you have conceded that “pastor” can LIE but it is not the matter, but how am I now today to believe that “Pastor” Oritsejafor s not mobilising his friend President Jonathan to COVER up for him by saying the money Pastor Oritsejafor wanted to launder is owned by the Nigerian govt? This is the plausible scenario because you have agreed with me that Pastor Oritsejafor is a LIAR but that that is not the problem!

          • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

            I don’t know whether pastor Ayo is a liar because I have not reached there yet. You have to move from point A to C. You can criticise pastors who runs private jets or businesses and I think they should be criticised. But this is not the issue here. The question is: was the arms transaction legal? If illegal it does not matter whether a pastor owns the jet or not. Let us be guided by reason and common sense. Emotion without reason is an enemy of civilisation.

          • Tawandah incommunicado

            GBAM !!

          • endingNaija

            You can develop cold feet and fear to LOOK INTO THE WELL. Here is why “Pastor” Oritsejafor is a LIAR. (i) 2013 “Pastor” Oritsejafor said his jet was donated to him by anonymous members of his church -(ii) 2014 “Pastor” Oritsejafor “forgot” what he said in 2013 about the source of his jet!!! An amnesia is NOT an excuse. Now this is it-because “pastor” Oritsejafor is a congenital LIAR, and given that he has not repented or admitted to his lies we have good reasons not to believe him until he openly admits about his congenital lies. You see this is about character. If someone’s character is defective incurably as we have it with Pastor, then he opens himself to being questioned as Nigerians continue to question our loving “Pastor” and his friend President Jonathan. See what I mean mani_kay?

    Firstly, I would like to castigate all those journalists for their cowardice in not asking Okupe to name the two Nigerians arrested with the Jew, Eyal Maseki with our undeclared common wealth, if he claimed the deal was not shady, why did they hide the ego? CAN-thug, Oletsejafor broke every rule in the book for renting a “pastoral jet” to a company he owns controlling interest in, so Okupe using “igbo analogy” only goes to show what his mind is floating on. Oletsejafor is not supposed to make profit and not pay taxes on them using a jet licensed for spreading the word of God. Secondly, the deals were shady because the GON was dealing with underworld criminals not licensed to deal in arms. The 2nd. deal was merely a call-back after the first went awry… that SA Govt. is investigating them as, “proceeds of illegal transactions” is proof all is not well, emphasized by the fact that the owo is still in Zulu hands. Conclusively, the “respectable, responsible, honest and sincere” description of the CAN-thug once dismissed by cultist Idahosa, can only come from a dishonest, irresponsible, insincere and cross-border scam artiste like Doyin Okupe who once took money from several Nigerian States for contracts he never delivered on… Animals!

      His defending an MOG on behalf of his boss should not come as a surprise.after all TB Joshua did his own himself.the problem now are the brown envelop journalists around town.

    • concerned9ja

      You can hardly blame the journos, but the poverty of the land. The stark reality is that the address was an avenue for the medic-turned spinner to loot Nigeria again. Okupe would request for N100m from the government and put N100k in each envelope for journalists. In the end he pockets about N80m and the media men smile to the newsroom with about four times of their monthly take-home in one swoop. Only you and I are the losers in this business of misgoverning of Nigeria.

    Okupe, just like his principal, Dumbo, has little regard for Nigerians. If it quacks like a hen and walks like a hen, chances are that it is a hen. Put another way, the witch cried last night and the child died today…… The first question Okupe should bother about is why the Federal Government of Nigeria is ferrying cash, in a rented private jet to buy weapons from non-existent or deregistered companies in south africa, through the black market and without declaring the funds. The fact that it is Oritsejafors jet, a well known “friend” of the President just makes it worse. Like I said, the administration has no respect for Nigerians. Rather than provide explanations that make sense, this sad man thinks he can hoodwink us by telling us they are security issues that cannot be discussed! The sad part is that it is not clear we know how to ensure that people like Jonathan never come near the presidency of Nigeria again.

  • africa

    What many don’t know is that the Church today is not poor any where in the world, and can afford to buy whatever they want to legally.Papa Ayo is a blessing not just to Nigeria but to the world at large. He gives out brand new cars,tricycles,etc to indigent people around Warri and its environ every year. Are you so ignorant to know that the FGN and even the South Africa press has already said the money was from FGN to purchase ammunitions and all documents to that effect are available? If you own a car and put it on hire,do you become liable for any crime committed by the passengers that are caught red handed in the car? If you are wise you should know money launders are criminals that cannot afford to move money with their names, Bank accounts and anything of their own including their own jet if they have one. Why do you think Papa Ayo will do such a dump thing. Papa Ayo has the right to lease out his jet to raise some money for maintenance just like others do. Be wise to know that the Gospel requires money. You speak as if it is evil to associate with President Jonathan when people like you want to do so if you have any slight opportunity.Be informed that Papa Ayo is the leader of all Christians in Nigeria of which Goodluck Jonathan is one. He cannot and should not distance himself from him . If you said Goodluck Jonathan bought him the jet or has given him so much money,then ask yourself why is he leasing it out to make money for maintenance when Jonathan is still the incumbent President, he could easily help him to maintain the jet. Be wise.

    • zaragoza

      Mr Africa shutup ur corrupt smelling mouth ur papa Ayo is blessing to your family alone and a curse to himself and his house hold.
      He has not brought shame to the house of God but upon himself and his followers. In my Father’s house their many Mansions and grace so thousands of Ayo cannot put it ridicule.

    • segun

      The Jet should be for evangelism. The President of CAN is driving the names of christians in the mud. When he turns it to commercial use did he inform members of his church or CAN. How much tax did he pay now since it was supposed to be tax free now? If we need to pray for our christian brothers, fine but defending an irresponsible act is an abomination in the sight of God.

    • concerned9ja

      So, how about the principle of vicarious liability? How about ethical investment? Have you forgotten that to whom much is given, much is expected. Oritsejsfor has bastardised the ecclesiastic robe, there don’t blame people when they drag him in the mud. You cannot set Warri standard to judge Oritsejafor. For the men of God, not everything goes for them.

      @africa. you should be ashamed of yourself for defending this Gehazi of a man. Giving out a car every year hahahahahaha. Is that the impaction of meaningful life?

You better wake up from your slumber before any corrupt man n the name of servant of God drag you to hell.

    “If I have many cars at the airport and decide to give one to car hire services. And he decides to carry somebody having Indian hemp, will you link it up with the man who gave it out?”

    For Okupe to have given the above illustration as an instance, he has indirectly acknowledged that the south africa deal was criminal in nature.

    His vague and unintelligent response is similar to the one from CAN. Calling a press conference with the sole aim of exonerating Ayo Oritsejafor, has confirmed that his loyalty is not to the Nigerian people but to Ayo.

    My advise for them is to be packing their bags and items from the government. Nigerians are wiser now and there’s no amount of kneeling down at Redeem church convention or being prayed for by all pastors in Nigeria can’t save Goodluck Jonathan. His name only brought luck for Pastor Ayo, Asari, Okupe Abati, Wendell and all other outgoing officials.

    It is obvious that God who had a hand in making Jonathan a president also has a hand in making him not return to Aso rock come May 30 2015

    HOW APPOINTEES RIDICULE GOODLUCK JONATHAN

    Goodluck Jonathan lacks self-respect, otherwise, he’ll not put himself on the spot as butt of public jokes.
    With self-respect he’ll weigh decisions, and be less flippant, and, un-presidential in speech and conduct.
    No right-thinking person can say he’s proud of Goodluck Jonathan for the atrocious judgement he makes.
    Or for that matter for any sensible initiative by his aides and advisers – none of whom shows good sense.

    But since he made these appointments, out of a choice of 50 million persons, Jonathan must stew in his juices.
    His fatal attraction to uncouth persons is what’s fatally undermined his rather shambolic presidency into repose.
    He’s boasted emptily twice that he was going to be praised in 2013 and later shifted to 2014 – but wasn’t praised.
    But instead ridiculed the more, as his aides and advisers badly exposed him as a forever apprentice president.

    They must defend Ayo Oritsejafor quickly, before he could submit to pressure from the public and start opening can of corrupt worms. They are all partners in crime.

  • dankasa

    You are right Mr. TRUTH MASTER

  • felix

    ayo oritsejafor respected ,responsible, honest pls

  • Awojobi Olakunle

    Okupe should also tell the whole world how much was paid for the use of this Private Jet bearing in mind that the presidency has about 10 Jets in the fleet.The giver of the gift also awarded contract that will bring money for maintenance of the gift,since the Pastor’s greed will not allow him reject the gift he cannot maintain nor need in the first place his church has few branches in and outside Nigeria

  • Isaac Azor

    Partners in crime must always defend each other! Oritsejafor has done the worst damage to CAN’s image. If he was a man of at least little conscience he would not have still be sitting in the office by now. Dia is God!!

  • Robert

    DOYIN OKUPE SHOULD PLEASE BE QUIET!

    WHETHER HE LIKES IT OR NOT, AYO ORITSEJAFO HAS BEEN EXPOSED – LET HIM ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS IF HE DARES:

    1. IS THE JET YOURS OR YOUR CHURCH’S?

    2. IF IT IS YOUR CHURCH’S DID YOU INFORM THE CHURCH COUNCIL OF THE LEASE OF THE JET FOR COMMERCIAL USE?

    3. IF THE JET IS YOURS – HOW CAN YOU CLAIM YOU KNEW NOT THE PURPOSE OF ITS JOURNEY TO SOUTH AFRICA.

    4. IS ‘EAGLE AIR’ NOT YOUR COMPANY??

    5. WHY DID YOU LEASE YOUR JET ALLEGEDLY MEANT FOR ‘PASTORAL WORK’ TO YOUR OWN COMPANY, EAGLE AIR???

    6. YOUR JET WAS LEASED TO OTHER END USERS FOR A FEE – FIRS, ICPC AND THE EFCC SHOULD PROSECUTE YOU FOR TAX EVATION BECAUSE WHEN YOU REGISTERED THE JET, IT WAS REGISTERED FOR CLERGY USE – THUS ENTITLED TO VERY LOW REGISTRATION FEES AND IS EXEMPT FROM TAXATION!!

    SIMPLY PUT: YOUR ALLEGED JET GIFT MEANT TO BE USED FOR CLERGY WORK WAS USED TO FERRY STOLEN CASH TO SOUTH AFRICA, SCHEDULED TO LAND AT A PRIVATE AIRPORT IN LANSERIA, TO BE STASHED AWAY FOR THE THIEF YOU WORK FOR PERIOD!!

    ALL THIS TALK OF ‘CASH FOR ARMS’ IS JUST A RUSE TO COVER THE TRUTH.

    GOD WILL EXPOSE YOU SOON! FAKE, HIPHOP SO-CALLED PASTOR WHO WEILDS GOLD CHAINS AND A GOLD WALKING STICK!

  • Ebele Asari

    Doyin Okupe when will you become a man and stop this psychophancy, you a disgrace to your children, you logic didn’t even rhyme and left you stammering. What story will you be telling your grand children when you retire, that you were a praise singer by profession?

  • Larry

    Doyin Okupe is such a moron and lunatic. I will not be surprise a bit from this statement defending Oritsejafor. You have this history of corruption,bad mouth, MANUOVRE and manupulation when you are publicity secretary of Defunct NRC. We know your history and that’s why birds of the same feather will always flock together. If there are more than 200 private jets in Nigeria, must you use that of Oritsejafor? Definitely there are back doors influencies. So just keep your watery and dirty mouth shut because Nigerians are sick and tired of all you BOOT LEAKERS
