“President Jonathan Did Not Say I Distorted His Views” – Olusegun Adeniyi

Olusegun Adeniyi, author of ‘Against the Run of Play’ has reacted to comments allegedly credited to former President Goodluck Jonathan that the book contains distorted views.

Former President Jonathan, in a statement on Saturday said: “I have just read Segun Adeniyi’s new book, ‘Against the Run of Play’ which has so far enjoyed tremendous reviews in the media.

“My take on it is that the book as presented contains many distorted claims on the 2015 presidential election by many of the respondents. There will obviously be more books like that on this subject by concerned Nigerians.”

But Adeniyi, in a swift response, explained that the former president was referring to other respondents whose claims he disagreed with.

He also said he did not distort the statements of the former president in the book.

“The respondents President Jonathan was referring to are the people who spoke to me and whose claims he apparently disputes or disagrees with. This should be clear enough to those who did not choose to read his statement with a tendentious accent,” he said.

“President Jonathan did not say I distorted his views and the fact that others may have presented him in ways he doesn’t like cannot be taken as an indictment of me or of my work,” he said.

“For the record, after my first conversation with President Jonathan, I asked for his email address and promised to send him the raw text of our conversation which he could then amend as appropriate. I sent it to him that very day. When I went for a second meeting, I took along a printed copy which we both went through line-by-line. Whatever he wanted removed, reworked or rephrased was done while in some areas he provided further context to what he said.

“Incidentally, a few hours after our second conversation, President Jonathan called me that he felt uncomfortable about a certain response he gave to a particular issue. He told me what to do and I reflected it immediately. I went into all that length because he is a man for whom I have tremendous respect and my intention was/is not to embarrass him or anybody. I just wanted his side of the story told in a way he is comfortable with.

“I went through this same process with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, former Senate President David Mark, APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, former NGF Chairman and current Transportation Minister, Mr Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, former Niger State Governor, Dr Muazu Babangida Aliyu and a few other principal actors who all have in their emails the raw text of our conversations.”

Adeniyi said he went through a thorough vetting process with all the respondents so he would not misquote or distort their statements.

“The reason I did that was so I would not misquote, misrepresent or distort the views of any of the people who spoke to me on trust,” he said.

“My intention was not to ambush or set up anyone. This is why I gave them the opportunity to go over what they told me again before putting it in print. Fortunately, none of them has come out to say I distorted their views. Besides, I left out so many things in my book so as to avoid unnecessary controversies. For instance, President Obasanjo made some strong remarks about former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar which I decided to remove even after he (Obasanjo) had approved it for publication. I did the same to some of the things others told me that I believed could raise unnecessary dust or distract from the story at hand.

“Therefore, I did not distort President Jonathan’s view and he did not say I did. Now that he has reaffirmed what he told me that he is writing his own account, I will enjoin Nigerians to wait for his book. I hope others will join him in writing their own accounts so that we can have the complete story of the 2015 presidential election. The more accounts and the more perspectives we have, the better for our education and learning. In the same vein, I will also implore all the key actors in the major historical junctures of our national life to document their experiences for the present and for posterity.”

Adeniyi also raised the alarm that hackers were now circulating his book on the internet. He called on the authorities to do more to protect creative artists from pirates.

“Meanwhile, I am aware that hackers have succeeded in breaking the code to the online edition of my book and are already circulating the book online. I have received it from different sources, even on WhatsApp. Though sad, it is a familiar story for me. In the case of my earlier book, ‘Power, Politics and Death’, it actually went viral on the day of presentation. So, that I enjoyed three days of grace this time is a bonus,” he said.

“While I feel pained losing the revenue that could have accrued to me from online sales, I wrote the book because I believe it is an important story that should be documented and widely read. I have a feeling this book will be widely read, though at my expense and that of my publishers. But I am comforted by the fact that we are succeeding in dispelling the myth that Nigerians do not read. Nigerians do read. It is our task to write on what will interest them and present and package such in ways they will find appealing.

“That said, however, I am more worried for people in creative arts and sciences, especially those in Nollywood, who are practically at the mercy of hackers and pirates. The authorities should do more to protect their works from the antics of people who reap where they do not sow. When creative people in both the arts and sciences cannot be guaranteed the legitimate benefits of their sweat and investments, they lose the incentive to take the risk to create and innovate. And when that happens, the whole society loses. Protecting intellectual property is therefore good for all of us, not just for the artistes and the inventors. We will all be the better for it.?”

Nigeria Loses $850m To Gas Flaring Says DPR

The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR)  said that Nigeria, the ninth largest gas producing nation in the world, lost over 850 million dollars to gas flaring in 2015.

Mrs Pat Maseli, Deputy Director, Head, Upstream, DPR, gave the statistics at the just concluded 10th Annual Sub-Saharan Africa Oil and Gas Conference in Houston, Texas, U.S.

This is according to a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Lagos on Sunday by Mr Sonny Oputa, Chairman, Energy Corporate African, the organiser of the conference.

Maseli said that the development led to a loss of 3,500 megawatts of electricity generation and about 400 million dollars carbon credit value emission.

She said, “55 million Barrels of Oil Equivalent (BOE) was lost and 25 million tons of carbon dioxide emitted.

“The country is recording decline, but the scale of gas flaring is still worrisome’’.

She said that with almost 8 billion cubic meters of gas flared annually, according to satellite data, Nigeria had the seventh largest gas flaring in the world.

“At the same time, approximately 75 million Nigerians lack access to electricity.

“In recent years, Nigeria has shown significant progress by reducing gas flaring by about 2 billion cubic metres from 2012 to 2015,’’ she was quoted as saying.

Maseli said that prior to now, there were no gas terms in place, but the department had recently developed policies on gas terms and utilisation.

“This was passed to operators for their input which will subsequently be sent to the National Assembly for its passage

“The Gas Master Plan seeks to deliver gas to commercial sub sector for use as fuel, captive power and related end-use, to consolidate Nigeria’s position and market share in high value export markets.

“It will create regional hub for gas-based industries, including fertiliser, petrochemical and methanol.

“ It will also transform the gas sector to a value-adding sector,’’ Maseli said.

On the breakdown of the 2008-2013 Domestic Gas Supply Obligation (DGSO), she said that  compliance was about 23 per cent.

It said that in 2016, the DGSO was achieved at 38.18 per cent, while in 2017, it was 40 per cent.

PDP Members Decamp To APC In Akwa Ibom

Over 500 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ikono Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom on Sunday defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The defection in Ikono, generally regarded as the cradle of the Ibibio, was the latest defection to  hit the PDP in the state in recent times.

Among those that defected were four former councillors, Iboro Akpan, Samuel Etuk, Ndifreke Essien and Jonathan Umana, a former PDP chapter secretary, Dr George Udoh, a former University of Uyo official, Dr Silas Udofia and Mr Victor Etefia, an oil mogul in the state.

In his remarks, the immediate past senator of Akwa Ibom North West in the National Assembly, Sen. Aloysius Etok, expressed joy that all the “real politicians” in the area were together in the APC.

Etok assured the APC in the state of bloc votes in Ikono in the 2019 general elections , adding that the era of writing election results in Government House, Uyo, is over.

He described some of those still in Ikono PDP as “lightweight and violent politicians” with no grassroots support.

The senator dismissed as false the claim by the PDP state government that it had constructed 250 kilometres of roads in the state.

Also speaking, former member of the House of Representatives for Ikono/Ini federal constituency, Mrs Iquo Inyang commended the defectors for choosing to embrace the change that was going on in the country.

Inyang applauded the anti-corruption war of President Muhammadu Buhari administration, adding that it was the answer to the prayers of Nigerians who were impoverished by the mindless looting of the treasury by the last PDP government.

Receiving the defectors, Obong Uko Umoh, the State APC Vice Chairman for Akwa Ibom North East Senatorial District who represented the State Chairman Dr Amadu Atai, said that the PDP being heavily factionalized would fade away from Akwa Ibom politics in 2019.

He charged the defectors to return to their wards to join existing APC members to preach the message of change.

Mr Iboro Akpan, a former leader of Ikono Legislative Council, who spoke on behalf of the defectors, assured APC of their total commitment and said he was making history after former President Olusegun Obasanjo as the second former PDP member to publicly shred his membership card.

Police Warns Against IPOB Protest In Abuja

The Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Command, Musa Kimo, has warned the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, against its planned protest in Abuja.

Mr. Kimo gave the warning in a statement issued by the command’s spokesperson, Usen Omorodion, in Abuja on Sunday.

He said as a professional organisation, the command would not fold its arms and watch criminal elements hide under the guise of such protest to cause breakdown of law and order.

Mr. Kimo advised residents to go about their lawful duties without fear and molestation.

In a related development, Mr. Omorodion said the command arrested a member of an armed robbery syndicate at Robochi, Abuja on April 26.

He said Usman Mai-moto, 24, a principal suspect, was arrested with a stolen motorcycle by police operatives on routine patrol.

The spokesperson said the suspect confessed to have participated in the snatching of several motorcycles at gunpoint.

Mr. Omorodion said the suspect had given the police useful information that led to the arrest of one of his cohorts, Wisdom Peter, 18, who was arrested while trying to sell a stolen motorcycle.

He said the two stolen motorcycles had been recovered from the suspects.

“Frantic effort is being made to arrest their cohort said to be in possession of the firearm used by the syndicate for its robbery operations.’’

Mr. Omorodion said the command had also arrested three suspects who specialised in house breaking.

The suspects are: Mansur Aminu, 24, Emmanuel Aboki and Dauda Isa.

Items recovered from them include, two clippers, 11 SIM cards and one generating set.

He said the suspects would be transferred to the Command Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation and prosecution.

Ex Gov Lamido’s Statement Capable Of Inciting Violence Says Police Spokesperson

The police spokesperson in Kano State, Samba Sokoto has given an official reason for the arrest of the former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido.

According to him, Mr. Lamido was arrested for making statements capable of inciting violence. He said the ex-governor’s alleged offence is contrary to Section 114 of the penal code. He said investigations are ongoing and that Mr. Lamido would be charged to court at the end of the investigations.

The deputy superintendent of police said the investigation was triggered by a petition received on April 27 from the Jigawa State government against the former governor, who was accused of asking his supporters to resort to violence if the July 1 local government elections did not go their way.

The police spokesperson said Kayode Aderanti, the assistant inspector general of police in charge of the Kano Zone One, promised to be just in the conduct of the investigations.

An online news medium, PREMIUM TIMES, had obtained the original petition sent by Ikenna Ekpunobim, counsel to Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa. The petitioner translated, from Hausa, statements allegedly made by Mr. Lamido at a PDP meeting in Dutse, Jigawa State.

“Before the election I will make every one of you swear with his life to protect our cause. No matter what, I will not listen to you for complaining. All I want is to come for your bail in the police station breaking another person’s head or you fought someone because the administration belongs to mad people,” the former governor was alleged to have said.

After his arrest earlier on Sunday, Mr. Lamido’s houses in Kano and Jigawa were searched by separate teams of police officers.

While a police source confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that nothing incriminating was found in the Kano home, details of the Jigawa search have not been made known.

Mr. Lamido was still at the SIB department of the Zone One police command as at 10:30 p.m. on Sunday night, an indication he could spend the night with the police.

His sons and several other political aides including his security details were seen with him all waiting for the actions of the police.

One of his political associates, Dahiru Kera, disclosed to pressmen that the governor was told to wait for the AIG, Mr. Aderanti, before a decision would be taken on whether or not he would be released on bail.

Mr. Kera, like other associates of Mr. Lamido, said the former governor was only being victimised for being an opposition leader.

Mr. Lamido may be charged to court on Tuesday after Monday’s public holiday.

No Apologies For Treading On Toes Says Ex President Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that he will not apologise for treading on anybody’s toes during his reign as president of the country between 1999 and 2007. He said this in Lagos on Friday during a reception organised by his close associates to celebrate his 80th birthday.

“I make no apologies for treading on anybody’s toes. If anybody put their toes on my path, I will tread on them,” Obasanjo said.

He attributed Nigeria’s woes to inconsistencies in government policies.

Obasanjo said the failure of successive leaders to consolidate on the achievements of their predecessors had made governance look like an impossible task.

Obasanjo recalled that during one of his visits to Singapore, he asked the country’s former Prime Minister, Harry Lee Kuan Yew, the secrets of the Asian country’s success.

The former president said, “He (Yew) simply told me their secret was that they did a few things right and continued to do them right. We keep lamenting as if Nigeria is impossible to run or get things rights.

“I think that during my tenure as president, we did quite a few things right but our failure to continue to do what we have done right is the problem.

“One of the things we got right was the Universal Basic Education. We said Nigerians had no reason not to have at least nine years of education.

“On primary healthcare, we did things right because we realised that if we provided basic care for malaria treatment, we would reduce infant and maternal mortality.

“On anti-corruption, I think we got it right. But did we continue to get things right?”

Speaking earlier at the occasion, two former governors, Gbenga Daniel (Ogun State) and Olagunsoye Oyinlola (Osun State) had claimed that Obasanjo trod on their toes during his administration.

“In fact, Baba almost crushed my toes. But Baba is a great man who cares for the nation and wants things to be done the right way,” Daniel said, with Oyinlola expressing the same sentiment.

A former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu, in his remarks, praised the former president for his leadership achievements in the country, adding that Obasanjo contributed immensely to his personal career.

“Things really happened during that period and there were a couple of difficult moments because 99 per cent of the people we arrested were Peoples Democratic Party members.

“He (Obasanjo) exercised self-restraint; he refused to interfere with the day-to-day running of the EFCC. Obasanjo is a living proof that hard work does not kill. I wish he would never retire. You can’t afford to retire.”

Similarly, a former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Dr. Doyin Okupe, while praising Obasanjo during the event, described the ex-president as “a bad man” who pushed everyone in his team to work hard.

“Baba is a bad man; even though he was the oldest in the team, he worked very hard and expected others to do as well. I told him I did not have as much strength as he would expect, Baba retorted, ‘Ole, ole!’ (lazybones; thief!).”

Pope Sues For Peace In Korea Peninsula

Pope Francis has called for international mediation to ease rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea over Pyongyang’s nuclear activity.

The pontiff suggested that Norway, for example, was “always ready to help”.

He warned the crisis risked sparking a devastating war in which “a good part of humanity” would be destroyed.

His comments come hours after North Korea test-fired another ballistic missile, which the U.S. and South Korea say exploded shortly after take-off.

The missile was fired from a site in South Pyeongan province, north of Pyongyang, South Korea said.

U.S. President Donald Trump accused Pyongyang of showing “disrespect” towards China and its president.

Mr Trump recently hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping and praised him for “trying very hard” on North Korea.

The test came just hours after the UN Security Council had discussed North Korea’s missile programme.

Speaking to reporters aboard his plane after a visit to Egypt, Pope Francis said: “There are so many facilitators in the world, there are mediators who offer themselves, such as Norway for example.”

He warned that the situation had become “too hot” and said: the “path is the path of negotiations, of a diplomatic solution”.

In 2003 six-party talks – involving the two Koreas, the U.S., China, Japan and Russia – were launched to address concerns over the North’s nuclear programme. But Pyongyang withdrew from the negotiations in 2009.

Tensions in the region have increased lately, with both North and South Korea conducting military exercises.

North Korea is believed to be continuing efforts to miniaturise nuclear warheads and fit them on long-range missiles capable of reaching the U.S.

It is not known what kind of missile was unsuccessfully launched on Saturday. However, U.S. officials told Reuters news agency that it was probably a medium-range missile known as a KN-17.

The land-based, anti-ship ballistic missile has already had two failures.

“Sometimes, the questions are complicated and the answers are simple” – Dr Seuss.

Discussions about corruption became more tensed prior to 2015 general election and continuous till today. What is not certain is whether the successes recorded worth the amount of publicity from the government
or the fight is advancing to the detriment of other sectors. Some analyst believed that the continuous mention of this fraudulent act is a step forward as compared in the past when little or nothing is talk
about it.

To some, the only difference from the past is in the area of publicity but nothing much has been done in regards to matching words with action. Others see it as a selective fight aimed at oppressing the opposition, people close to the government are placed on zero targets only in rare cases when the FG succumb to action as a result
of pressures from the general public and media. A segment of the public also argued that the federal government’s resolve to fight Grand corrupt practices more than the Petty ones is a huge mistake considering the fact that most of the petty corrupt practices occur at the implementation end of public service for example, in private and public offices, police stations, highways, institutions, registration offices etc.

It is completely illogical if we continue to advocate strategies to fight corruption without paying some attention in curbing it root causes. What are the driving forces? How does this dishonest act find its way into our domain?
The home is generally seen as the first institution one attends, a well discipline home produce a corrupt free child and vice versa. Is offering the child with the best discipline he/she deserves enough? Is the need to tell our children the truth about the cruel and hostile world that is filled with selfish people necessary? Perhaps not only to tell them, but to educate them on how to live in such an inevitably complicated world.

It is believed that the earlier we make up our children to the harsh realities the better it is. A child should grow with the knowledge of how bad corruption is, let them not grow in the delusion to convert everything for personal gain. It is difficult for a child to learn on his/her own about the deceptive world. More so, this education should
not be done in such a way the child will think that all humans are selfish and dishonest. Great achievement of any society is a prerequisite to its childish purity, innocence and virtue.

Many politicians and highly placed public workers have one or more religious consultant with a very special obedience that is ordinarily uncommon to these fortunate people. They respect them and listen to many of their instructions. As busy as these politicians are, they create time to visit them for guidance and other consultations –
mostly personal. The increasing romance between these two parties of the society ought to have reflect a lot of goodness to the society, unfortunately it has produced more harm than good. The religious leaders use the politicians to actualize their selfish whims while the politicians enjoy the prophecies they get from them – mostly self centered and user friendly. They don’t tell them how to worship God or the sufferings of the poor, they have derailed and become subject in misguiding politicians, they celebrate and keep on telling them what they wanted to hear and not the truth.

Religion teaches the importance of social justice, welfare and accountability. It is obvious that our religious leaders are guilty in this regard. Until they readjust to their original position as ambassadors of goodwill, corruption will remain in our corridors. God forbid!

The tertiary institutions where moral values ought to be acquired have become breeding ground for different kinds of immoral activities. The institutions have not done enough in teaching critical thinking skills to student. A good critical thinker has the ability to analyze fact in a reflective and more reasonable way. Investigation shows that most of these corrupt politicians begin this illicit act right from the tertiary institutions. It starts from embezzling of student union funds, bribing lecturers to pass exams among other heinous act. The institutions as a matter of importance needs to inculcate in their student the spirit of selfless service to humanity as well as demonstration of good character.

The method we use to pick a leader is of paramount important in the effort to change the present status quo to a better one. It is important we assess a candidate not only based on his/her antecedent but based on the positions they take on issues and the leadership qualities and experience they would bring to the office. Picking leaders based on the penny we receive from them or our relation with them is the reason that caused us today’s problem.
Apart from posters and radio ads, other channel must be improvised to gather enough information about a candidate. If we don’t want corruption then we must shine our eyes and bring in leaders that can match their pre-election words with post-election actions, leaders with proven track records of accomplishment, honesty and integrity.

Getting someone with high sense of morality that cannot be easily manipulated and has a genuine passion to serve should always be a priority. The need for a collective fight against corruption cannot be overstated. From the home where the child is groomed to the academic institutions where character and learning is installed, and then the religious leaders whose priority among others should include enlightening the followers on God fearing and the dangers of using official capacity for personal gains. Strategies should be put in place to mitigate the impact of past corrupt practices, however more emphasis should be giving to track corrupt act happening under their watch than spending more time probing yesterday’s offence. We cant fight corruption like God, measures should be put in place to change the mental attitude of the man. Prevention they say is better than cure.
