TOUGH AS A NAIL ON RUSSIA - TRUMP.

"Getting along with President Putin, getting along with Russia is positive not a negative. Now, with that being said if that doesn’t work out I'll be the worst enemy he's ever had – the worst he's ever had." - President Donald John Trump.


IT IS FRANCE: RUSSIA 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP CHAMPION.

IT IS FRANCE: RUSSIA 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP CHAMPION.

ICHEOKU says they did it, deservedly and rightly earned; the boys from Paris. ICHEOKU says congratulations.

KAVANAUGH IS THE ONE: CONGRATULATIONS

KAVANAUGH IS THE ONE: CONGRATULATIONS.

ICHEOKU says he is coming with a clear-eyed view of what the United States of America constitution provides and will not legislate from the bench. ICHEOKU says definitely the right pick, so CONFIRM him now and right away and without any delay or much ado. Congratulation.

DEEP STATE IS REAL.


Lisa Page: “Trump is not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”


Peter Strzok: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”


ICHEOKU says if this is not corruption of the worst type, what else so qualifies? So sad the length these guys went to truncate the will of the American people; yet they will turn around and accuse other countries of corruption and you wonder is it only when money exchanges hands that there is corruption. Pitifully SAD.

OBSTRUCTION 101: THE VERDICT.

“The only obstruction President Trump committed was in obstructing Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton from the White House.” - Jesse Watters, Watters World.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: THE PROMISE KEEPER

“The United States no longer makes empty threats. When I make promises, I keep them.” - President Donald John Trump.

ICHEOKU says exactly why he is now fondly nicknamed the Promise Keeper and he keeps his promises, one promise at a time.

NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL IS UNACCEPTABLE.

America will not be held hostage to nuclear blackmail. We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. And we will not allow a regime that chants “Death to America” to gain access to the most deadly weapons on Earth." - President Donald John Trump.


AG JEFF SESSIONS: WHAT DO THEY HAVE ON HIM?

ICHEOKU says what does the Deep State have on AG Jeff Sessions that has purchased his quiet and inaction over the excesses of the Russian Collusion witch hunt? Something definitely does not look right and apparently seems awry that the Attorney General appears so constricted to do anything to bring the never ending "investigation" to a conclusion. How much longer will the American people wait to have the matter concluded and what will it take. As a member of Team MAGA, from the basket of deplorables, who defended him when the president was threatening to fire him, ICHEOKU is not particularly satisfied with the "playing it safe" attitude which Jeff has adopted thus far and urge him to find any possible way to make the investigators finish their job immediately and without any further delay.


TONY ELUMELU: LETS MAKE HIM PRESIDENT.

ICHEOKU says he has all it takes to turn Nigeria around and Make Nigeria Great Again. He is highly cerebral; he is well traveled and is highly exposed internationally; he is a doer with a can-do spirit and attitude which translates to impossible is nothing as it does not exists in his dictionary; he is fully accomplished person who turned around the nearly moribund behemoth UBA and created thousands of jobs both in Nigeria and overseas; and above all, he is youthful and has age on his side and you ask yourself, what else is anyone looking for in a leader for Nigeria that is on bended knees and begging for leadership other than a man with his proven record. If he can do this in the private sector, he can also mission accomplish such in the public sector and resuscitate a Nigeria that is in distress. CHEOKU is emphatic that Tony Elumelu is a highly qualified, fit and proper person to lead Nigeria out of its present woods of near comatose and under performing achievements. Lets go to work Nigerians and make his candidature both viable and achievable. We can do this fellas; so lets urge Tony to run, run Tony run and together lets Make Nigeria Great Again. If Trump can do it, so can Tony.


SYRIA WARNED TO DESIST OR BE BOMBED AGAIN.

"If the Syria regime uses this poisonous gas again on its people, it will be bombed again. The United States of America is locked and loaded. When our president draws a redline, our president enforces the redline." - Nikki Haley, United States of America Ambassador to the United Nations.


VLADIMIR PUTIN: WHENEVER HE IS READY!

VLADIMIR PUTIN: WHENEVER HE IS READY!

ICHEOKU says Russia's Vladimir Putin has one good opportunity to finally move back into the comity of civilized nations and stop his despotic mentality which always sees him flocking amidst his fellow dictators. But if he choses to remain in the cold and remain in Kremlin where he has been holed in since 1999, too bad. His too long stay in power is only damaging Russia but not helping it; and gradually turning Russia into a third world country where only one man dictates what goes on in the country. Putin, change your ways; let true democracy reign in Russia. Salute

JOHN BOLTON: THE NEW NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER.

JOHN BOLTON: THE NEW NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER.

ICHEOKU says you cannot get a more American American and he is a hardcore America First nationalist as they come. President Donald John Trump's pick to succeeded fired National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster is the real deal. He is a hard-nosed American First protagonist, who does not shy away from projecting America's power through strength and who is not afraid to have America go it alone if need be. ICHEOKU says hopefully the president has found the very person who will help him achieve and implement his policy objectives in John Bolton. But as far as MAGA and AF agendas are concerned, Ambassador John Bolton is one heck of a good pick and a right fit for the job. He will help President Donald John Trump with doing his job for the American people. ICHEOKU says congratulations to the Mustachioed One. Let the governance of MAGA now really begin.


A FACEBOOK CENSORED WORLD: LIMITING FREE SPEECH

A FACEBOOK CENSORED WORLD: LIMITING FREE SPEECH

ICHEOKU says they pretend to be guardians of free speech but wants to tele-guide other peoples thinking by limiting what they can freely say; especially if you are a conservative and holds opinions which are favorable of President Donald John Trump and critical of Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton. Unfortunately, they will not succeed but can only force people to opt out of the live wasting exercise of gluing one's eyeballs to the platform. An exercise which does not add anything of value to users, nor pays them anything for helping them bring more eyeballs to the portal. Instead of being grateful that people are helping them bilk advertisers of billions of dollars with their riveted eyeballs, they now want to micromanage everyone's thought as if they are doing one a favor by letting them waste their time using Facebook. ICHEOKU says will not be cowered nor intimidated; they can block ICHEOKU all the heck they want but ICHEOKU will not bow to Facebook's attempt to control ICHEOKU's thoughts and would rather permanently part ways with the Mark Zuckerberg globalist weapon of mass control than kowtow to a group thinking. To hell with this attempt to exact undue control and turn everyone into a herd mind.


THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION: DEALT A FATAL BLOW.


"There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is also no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election." - Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General of the United States of America.

ICHEOKU says this determination, for every intent and purpose, now lays to rest the "Collusion with the Russians" hogwash; as nobody can be guilty of an offense which requires awareness to ground when he or she is not aware of it. Collusion is a conspiracy and requires a proactive participation coupled with a guilty knowledge to bring about the purpose of the conspiracy. Therefore, when will the Special Counsel address the nation and tell Americans that there is no there, there, in the Russian Collusion investigation and save America further bleeding both in resources, time and unity. Enough of the sore loser antics of the Democratic Party which does not know how to take a loss and learn to work to fix what went wrong, instead of continuously pointing a finger at a mirage that is the Russian Collusion, in its bid to find something to blame for its ineptitude that led to the epochal loss of November 8th, 2016.

FBI MEMO SCANDAL: OBAMA WAS IN THE LOOP


"POTUS WANTS TO KNOW EVERYTHING WE ARE DOING." - Lisa Page to boyfriend Peter Strzok, two FBI officials.


ICHEOKU says the POTUS then was President Barack Hussein Obama, who had previously denied and lied to the American people that he does not dabble into any FBI's investigative matter. Really?


AMERICA IS HERE TO STAY - PDJT

AMERICA IS HERE TO STAY - PDJT

"Americans fill the world with art and music. They push the bounds of science and discovery. And they forever remind us of what we should never ever forget: The people dreamed this country. The people built this country. And it's the people who are making America great again. As long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve. As long as we have confidence in our values, faith in our citizens, and trust in our God, we will not fail. Our families will thrive. Our people will prosper. And our Nation will forever be safe and strong and proud and mighty and free." - President Donald John Trump.


IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!

IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!
ICHEOKU says congratulations to President Donald John Trump for successfully steering America's ship of States for a full year. What the naysayers said will not happen is a reality which they are finding extremely difficult to live with. But their preferences notwithstanding, Make America Great Again is on course and nobody will torpedo it. Once again, congratulations to the leader of Team MAGA on the anniversary of his being sworn in as the 45th POTUS.

ICHEOKU'S MAN OF THE YEAR 2017: PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP

ICHEOKU says following an examination of so many nominated individuals, we have determined that this year 2017's man of the year is President Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. He came into office shooting on both hips and as the year draws to an end, his both guns are still firing and smoking. For standing up to the world and starring down American detractors and being the cheerleader and champion in chief of America, the leader of Team Make America Great Again has earned ICHEOKU's man of the year award 2017. Congratulations to President Donald John Trump.

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT
ICHEOKU says a wisdom of Solomon come to judgment; it is about time the child is given to the rightful mother. Salute to the courage of President Donald John Trump.

AMERICA STRONG!

"Together with our allies, America's warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities. No one — no dictator, no regime and no nation — should underestimate, ever, American resolve."


RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE FOUND!

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE EMERGES!

ICHEOKU says Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton was caught pants down colluding with the Russians and she has been trying so hard to pull the wool over the eyes of American people over whodunnit. What a lying, contriving, manipulative woman she is, who lies so easily that you wonder whether truth actually exists in her lexicon. Pitiful.

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY HILLARY CLINTON

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY CLINTON

ICHEOKU says finally the circle is about being completed and American people and the world at large will come to know who in fact did the collusion. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Congress paid Fusion GPS to produce the fake Russian dossier which former CIA chief James Clapper said was the basis for the Trump investigation. Yet, the investigation is still ongoing, despite the now established fact that the basis of it was a manufactured phony. But hey, we shall see.


ICHEOKU says still wondering WHAT HAPPENED and the reason 33,000 emails were deleted and bleach washed? Hopefully American people will soon confirm their suspicion that those shouting themselves hoax with Russian Collusion might indeed be the ones who actually colluded with the Russians. So much for the Russian Reset button. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton, simply too crooked.


GLAD TO BE CARRIED TO FULL TERM.

GRATEFUL TO BE CARRIED FULL TERM

ICHEOKU says another lucky one that survived the abortionist's pincers from the over 360,000 unlucky ones that get flushed out each year. May God help us all have a better resolution about unwanted pregnancies.


JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.

JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.
ICHEOKU says from being disrespectful to the flag to being unappreciative of the services of the military to overall being anti America; NFL players must learn to check their political activism outside the stadiums. They must not kneel on our dime. ICHEOKU supports the president 1000% on this and hereby calls on every player to respect the sensibilities of the many differently opined fans who paid to watch a game and not to be made mad by their personal political agenda.

IPOB: NOT A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION - USA


“The United States Government is strongly committed to Nigeria’s unity. Important political and economic issues affecting the Nigerian people, such as the allocation of resources, are worthwhile topics for respectful debate in a democracy. Within the context of unity, we encourage all Nigerians to support a de-escalation of tensions and peaceful resolution of grievances. The Indigenous People of Biafra is not a terrorist organization under US law.” - Russell Brooks, United States of America.

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

"When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that." - Senator Charles Schumer, Senior Senator from the State of New York and Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate. ICHEOKU says the statement spoke volume and it spoke for itself. Finally it seems the Democrats have finally turned the corner and are now ready to face up to their abysmal performance in the last presidential election by acknowledging that the American people indeed choose Trump over their Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, they will also now rest their "Russians Did It" cockamamie and find a message they can present to the people and for the good of the country.. Time to move the process forward is now as American people did not buy into the crap of a Russian collusion which they tried unsuccessfully to sell to them.

North Korea PUT ON NOTICE

NORTH KOREA  PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. As I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power." - President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says the Michelin Tire midget at Pyongyang is definitely courting trouble and messing with the wrong man. He probably thinks Barack Obama the redline president is still in office; but unbeknownst to him there is a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald John Trump and he does not mess around. Hopefully China can rein in the little man before he commits mass suicide with his North Korean people.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

ICHEOKU says once again the diminutive midget of Pyongyang has been advised to heed the resolution of the United Nations firm stand against his continuing provocations; and that the total wiping out of his North Korea is now an option should he force the hands of the United States of American military. In a statement by the Defense Secretary Jim Maddog Mattis over its latest nuclear test, the secretary said “Our commitment among the allies are ironclad. Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming. We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so.” ICHEOKU says does not really know the joker that guy has, but whatever it is will likely very soon be forced out. The world including ICHEOKU is waiting and watching.

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY
ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to go their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide their own Biafraexit.

PDJT ISSUES A VERDICT ON ISLAMIST TERRORISTS


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


BBOB: BRING BACK OUR BIAFRA

ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.
#BringBackOurBiafra.

Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found.

THE HIT LIST - our incredible but true story series: Serie 1!


These are true stories! They did happen! Please welcome to the debut of our new Sunday page titled "The Hit List". It is a purveyor of the past week's synopsis of weird, strange, incredible but true stories and some eye-catching Kodak-moments as compiled by our team of bloggers. Happy trails!
1.
Open Marriage: is it imaginable the thought of your spouse having intimacy with another person to your knowledge? American Will Smith just admitted to that and further revealed that it has been the little secret behind his over ten years marriage with Jada Smith. How does that sound to you? Jaded, may be! Isn't this strange? According to an interview he gave to a British Magazine, REVEAL, Will Smith said " our perspective is, you don't avoid what is natural, and you're going to be attracted to people. And if it came down to it, then one would say to the other: 'Look, I need to have sex with somebody. Now, I'm not going to if you don't approve of it.' In our marriage vows, we didn't say 'forsaking all others.' "

2. Black Widows: Two women in Los Angeles, California, United States of America were convicted of first degree murder and conspiracy to murder for financial gains of two men, Paul Vados 73 and Kenneth McDavid 50. They were sentenced two life terms each without the possibility of parole. According to the prosecution, the two convicts Helen Golay 73 and Olga Rutterschmidt 75 befriended two homeless indigents, took out life insurance policies on each of them and then killed them in a staged accident of what initially appeared to be a hit and run auto accidents; and collected $2.8 million dollars proceeds of the life insurance on the two men before they were busted. Delivering his judgment, Superior Court Judge David Wesley said " the two men you killed needed only food and water and shelter. They needed a helping hand. They thought they were getting this from you. Instead these unfortunate men were sacrificed on your alter of greed." Could it get more weird than this? Such old hags (ladies) nearly pulled this heinous crimes off. What are they going to do with such a huge amount of money being so near their own graves at seventy plus years old? I don't think so; but please be the judge.
3. Lover fights dog to death: In Redwood City, California, United States of America, a man tired of sharing his girlfriend's bed with her little Chihuahua dog, kicked the dog so hard that she suffered five broken ribs, punctured lung and liver and huge blood loss. An emergency surgery at Sequoia Veterinary Hospital could not save little Chihuahua named Chiquita who died as a result of the blunt trauma. The lover was enraged that the jealous dog urinated and defecated on him while he was sleeping over at the girl friends' house. The suspect, Mr. Ariel Aspedilla of Manteca who posted a fifty thousand dollar bail, is awaiting trial for "dogicide" - the killing of little Chiquita! Incredible? Just a dog some critic will say! But not in the land of America wonder - dogs do have rights too!
4. Nigeria electoral wonder: In Nigeria, the current Senate President David Mark won in only two out of seven districts in his senatorial zone in Benue State yet he "won" the seat anyway and is today the President of the Senate as most recently confirmed by the Appellate Court! How could this be possible? Only in Nigeria where Olusegun Obasanjo single handedly installed Umaru YarAdua as President. It will also be recalled that it was the same David Mark who as chairman of NITEL bought a 33million pounds sterling golf course in Ireland; talk about a national assembly of corrupt officials and who said, Nigeria will be fixed? With these kind of shady charactered men at the helm of affairs, the situation may be near hopelessness. As if that was not shocking enough, a member of the House of Representatives Nuhu Aliyu alleged that so many of their members are criminal master minds of the 419 notoriety; today after series of threats and arm-twisting, the crusader has been intimidated into grave silence and these are still "honorable" men? Icheoku does not think so but would rather they are properly designated for whom they are - "dishonorable men"! How can an allegation of such a disparaging magnitude be made against a whole Nigerian House of Representatives alleging criminality and all the members did was to sweep it under the carpet. If this is not a cover-up, then nothing else so qualifies. Also Senator Jubril Aminu still chairs the Senate Foreign Affairs committee and you ask why the Siemens $12million dollars bribery scandal which implicated him has fallen off the radar and then you will begin to understand Nigeria. So when Nigerians are treated as pariahs all over the world, don't feign ignorance or surprise surprise as to the root-cause. A country which leadership is constituted of criminal minds by extension is populated by criminal minds also otherwise why the statusquo? Only in Nigeria! Shocked?
5. How large do you think a crocodile can grow? Take a look at this picture and say your Holy Molly! This alligator was found between Centre and Leesburg , Alabama, United States of America near a dwelling house! Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator - guess he wouldn't cooperate? Neighbors had been telling the occupants that they had seen a mammoth alligator in the waterway that runs behind their house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations. However they later realized the stories were, if anything, understated. Alabama Parks and Wildlife game wardens had to shoot the beast.
Joe Goff, 6'5' tall, a game warden, walks past the 28-foot, 1-inch alligator he shot and killed in their back yard.
This is the end of our this week's mind-numbing stories and until next Sunday when we shall come your way again, stay tuned. Hope this debut was worth the hype! In any event however we shall continue to improve with subsequent publications. See you on the 27th July, 2008. So long!

A typical Nigerian 419er: Nuhu Aliyu’s shameful acts
January 31, 2008 · 2 Comments

Send a Letter to Congress
Your voice matters. We deliver your printed letter.
www.beheardtoday.com




By Adeola Aderounmu.

Those who are hoping to hear the names of the fraudsters in the National Assembly or in the House of Reps have been fooled. In Nigerian politics, all the politicians are fraudsters. This is why I was confused when one Nuhu Aliyu threatened that he would name some 419ers in the Nigerian lawmaking assemblies.




On what moral ground would Nuhu have been making such a disclosure when all that we know about Nigerian politics is dirtiness and insanity? The governance itself headed by Umaru remains illegitimate and questionable. Was it not 419 to swear in a president without an election? What votes were counted that resulted in the emergence of all the lawmakers from all the 36 states of the Federation?




What a shame indeed! Nuhu is now the one apologizing to his brothers and sisters-in-crime for his act of bravado. He wrote a letter in which he referred to himself and all the fraudsters alike as members of the same family. This is the truth anyway, I can take that. Members of the same family and in fact birds of the same feather.




Nuhu’s lawyers have now told him that he cannot accuse anyone of being a 419er unless the court of law says so. What was he thinking before he dropped the bombshell in the House last week? Did reasoning depart from him at that time? Of course not!




What has happened is that some behind the scenes manipulations have taken place. I can only imagine that there are other people who know about his own dirty secrets and involvements in the destruction of Nigeria. Those people are also ready to reveal his shady dealings in the police to the glare of the public.




In addition, one cannot rule out the possibility of the threat to his life by some of the 419ers and their accomplices. One can assume that this threat may have been extended to his friends and family. With a den of killers like the PDP, you don’t want to mess around in Nigeria’s arena of politics.




With a very useless letter addressed to the persons like Umaru and David Mark, the shamefulness of the act becomes pathetic. But the mistake made here is that this letter is an attempt to end the controversy and sweep the case under the carpet. These men are all jokers. How could they have forgotten soon that the Nigerian media will not allow them to rest on this one?




The people may be voiceless and resilient but sometimes they have been propelled by the media and certain voices of reasoning to leave clear indicators as to the limit of acceptance of mad acts. Though we are still battling with the illegal regime of Umaru, Patricia Etteh’s saga remains a victory for the masses and the media. We are aware that our fight against corruption have not yielded expected positive outcomes, but our knowledge and understanding of the unfolding revelations in recent months have helped to enlightened us on the nature of the real evil. The Supreme Court decisions, popular and unpopular, are mild approaches to the nature of the changes that may come.




In any case, Nuhu’s outburst and shameful withdrawal are clear examples of what the politicians take us for. The people are fools, just tell them it was a slip of tongue and let’s move on with business as usual, abi na their papa or mama vote for you? No be we arrange you to come this house? We no send you here to come put sandsand for other people garri. Chop your own make you comot. Infact, clean your mouth on your way out! Hun! Na so we dey do things here. Make you no come play super ex-cop for here at all. Wey your name sake Ribadu today?




Tomorrow, somebody will come and tell us that Nuhu Aliyu should not have made such a reckless statement in the House. They will tell us that there are due processes and the rule of law. What they will not tell us is that that is the last we shall hear of the controversy or claims. There are so many National cases and scandals that are pending or forgotten. Why? Because we always move on with our lives! Because we have extremely short memories! Because as a people we are not sincere! Because majority of Nigerians who are critics and writers are waiting for opportunities to scrape from the corridors of power from the level of the local government to Abuja.




Nigeria remains in a serious dilemma. Other nations are making progress and building on what they have. We have refused to make progress and we continue to destroy every fragment of our society and country. If Nuhu cannot reveal the 419ers in the House, shame on him. For real, shame on the useless National House of Assembly! Shame on the House of Representatives! Shame on Umaru’s clumsy approaches! One thing cannot be overrule and that is the fact that all these people were not elected. They were selected in the notoriously evil wuruwuru dictatorial arrangements. They have not disappointed me by their actions. Afterall, it is business as usual. Carry go!

EFCC Reopens Probe Into Siemens 10m Euros Bribe
*Set To Prosecute Those Involved In Scandal

By Sam Akpe, Deputy Editor, Abuja

Ranking Nigerians mentioned in the Siemens 10 million Euro bribe scandal which rocked the nation, last year, will soon face interrogation and possible prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Sunday Independent confirmed on Friday that the anti-graft commission has re-opened investigations into the issue and would soon invite all those involved to answer questions.

Last December, the EFCC, under its pioneer chairman, Nuhu Ribadu, took over the case from the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), but nothing was heard of the matter afterwards.

There were speculations later that President Umaru Yar'Adua was bent on protecting some powerful people named in the scandal and had directed that the case be transferred to those who would do what he wants.

Various top ranking Nigerians, including former ministers of communications and notable politicians were alleged to have demanded and collected huge sums from the company before facilitating award of contracts.

The Wall Street Journal was the first to unravel the bribe scandal.

All the payments were allegedly made in euros. Most of those mentioned in the scam were rankled by newspaper reports and had proceeded to deny involvement.

Until now, they must have thought the matter had been swept under the carpet.

The President had on Tuesday, December 27, 2007, through his former chief of staff, Mohammed Abdullahi, demanded that the case file hitherto controlled by the ICPC be handed over to the then chairman of EFCC.

Thereafter, EFCC was said to have only questioned Cornelius Adebayo, a former Communications Minister and ex-governor who was among those mentioned in the scandal.

Although details of Adebayo's statement were not made available to Sunday Independent, sources said "the case was ordered closed by the former EFCC boss after that interview while others also mentioned were left unattended to."

Among those alleged to have been bribed but who have denied the allegations are Senator Jubril Aminu; Tajudeen Olanrewaju, David Oyegun, a former permanent secretary at the Ministry of Communications and Ahmed Datti, formerly of Nigeria Telecommunications Limited (NITEL).

But sources said on Friday that the new leadership of the EFCC is ready to execute the investigation to conclusion and that those found to have been involved would be prosecuted immediately.

EFCC head of media and publicity, EFCC, Femi Babafemi, confirmed that the case has been re-opened and that since the contract dates back a long time, there were a lot of documents to examine.

Babafemi noted that the culture of documentation in Nigeria is relatively poor and for that reason, some of the documents on the case were not readily available.

He said, "some of the documents have actually disappeared" since the investigation commenced last year and was later suspended.

The EFCC spokesman said because the scandal and the contracts involved had international links operatives of the EFCC would travel to Germany to also look at files at that end.

Gratification by Siemens AG was said to have been given between 2002 and 2003 when most of those mentioned left offices either as ministers or bureaucrats.

Siemens was last year quoted as admitting in a court in Germany that it actually bribed Nigerian officials in spite of great efforts at denial by those mentioned in the scam.

Thereafter, the Federal Government, at a Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, revoked a huge contract hitherto awarded to Siemens.

Government also barred the company from getting any fresh contracts in Nigeria until the bribe scandal is resolved.

Siemens International had in November 2007 made effort to meet with Yar'Adua to explain its situation to him and seek forgiveness to continue business in Nigeria. The firm had written a letter to the president on November 21, 2007 through one Rudi Lamprecht, a member of the Siemens Management Board.
