Why We Attacked ThisDay – Boko Haram

The Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad, popularly known as Boko Haram, says it attacked THISDAY Thursday to send a strong message to the media that it would no longer condone reports misrepresenting it in the press, or blaming it for acts it knows nothing about.
Abul Qaqa, spokesperson for the sect told Premium Times, in an exclusive interview, that his organisation was fed up with the deliberate misinformation being peddled about it in the Nigerian and foreign media.
“We have repeatedly cautioned reporters and media houses to be professional and objective in their reports. This is a war between us and the Government of Nigeria; unfortunately the media have not been objective and fair in their report of the ongoing war, they chose to take side,” Mr. Qaqa said.
He identified three instances where he claimed his group was deliberately misrepresented by the media. The first, according to him, was the rumour of his capture by the Nigerian intelligence agencies.
“Some reporters are aware that I am Abul Qaqa, they know my voice through our long interactions and they also know the role of Abu Darda who heads the enlightenment committee and sometimes facilitates interviews; yet they (media) go by the unsubstantiated view of government that Abul Qaqa is in custody and I am the new spokesman or number two,” he said.
Premium Times had continuously reported that Abul Qaqa was not arrested contrary to reports and that it was Abu Darda, another member, that was arrested.
The second misrepresentation, according to Mr. Qaqa, was the reporting on the kidnappings of foreigners in the Northern part of Nigeria.
“Another issue was the recent kidnappings in the north; we were clear with our position as a group during a teleconference with reporters but we were shocked the next day when newspaper headlines added a lot of things which I never said during that interview.”
The third example, Mr. Abul Qaqa said, is the mistranslation of the video the group posted recently.
“Another example is the recent video posted on YouTube by our Imam; I challenge every Nigerian to watch that video again. There is no place our imam either said he will crush President Jonathan or issued an ultimatum to the government in Nigeria; but nearly all papers carried very wrong and mischievous headlines.”
When asked why THISDAY appeared specifically chosen for the attack, Mr. Qaqa said THISDAY’s “sins” are more grievous.
“It is not only THISDAY that has been engaged in negative media campaign, fictional stories and constantly promoting fake stories by the JTF to give an impression that they are making headway against us yet there is no time the media investigated further as an objective and responsible bystander in this war.
“But the sins of THISDAY are more,” he said.
“They once insulted the Prophet Mohammed in 2001 and we have not forgotten. They recently said our Imam executed me which is false. Here I am speaking to you, I am alive and healthy.”
Expect more media attacks
The group’s spokesman further warned of more attacks on the media.
“We have just started this new campaign against the media and we will not stop here, we will hit the media hard since they have refused to listen to our plea for them to be fair in their reportage,” he said.
Mr. Abul Qaqa also said his group would give further information on biases by the media.
“In the coming days we will give details and instances where the media have not been fair to us and why we are going to attack them as well.”
Media should be neutral
“The media in Nigeria are not a problem to us if they will do their job professionally without taking sides,” Mr. Abul Qaqa said.
“But each time we say something, it is either changed or downplayed. But when our enemy says something even without logical proof, it is blown out of proportion.”


“We have repeated asked some reporters to retract some stories or even give us the right of reply but none of these requests were given to us.”

How Babangida, Abacha, Obasanjo Shared Nigeria’s Oil Blocks

How Babangida, Abacha, Obasanjo Shared Nigeria’s Oil Blocks

26/04/2012 05:01:00

Font size:  

The process of sharing Nigeria’s oil block national cake is as fraudulent now as when Ibrahim Babangida started the process of discretionary allocation of oil blocks to indigenous firms.

Discretionary allocation of oil blocks entails that a president can reward a mistress who performs wonderfully with an oil block with capacity for cumulative yield of over $20 billion dollars without recourse to any process outside of manhood attachments.

Babangida, Abacha, Abdulsalami and Obasanjo awarded discretionary oil blocks to friends, associates, family members, party chieftains, security chiefs and all categories of bootlickers, spokespersons and cult members without any laid down procedures.

The recipients of such oil blocks will get funds from ever willing offshore financiers and partners to graciously settle the benefactors, the awarders, facilitators and the Commander-in-Chief through fronts.

These settlements mostly paid into foreign accounts runs into hundreds of millions of dollars according to the potential yield of the block.

Sometimes, the awarder (sharer of national cake and direct intermediaries) demand additional stakes in the bidding company. The awarder sends fronts as part of the directorship and management of the bidding firms without leaving a link to them. 

That is how the oil block national cake is distributed to a few Nigerians.
Signature bonuses which are paid when an investor successfully bids, wins and signs agreement with the petroleum ministry, running into tens of millions and sometimes hundreds of millions of naira ,is often waived off.

There is actually no waiver; rather a diversion of what would have been paid to government t coffers is paid into private purse as appreciation gifts. That is why those in the Petroleum Ministry dread retirement as though it signifies going to hell fire.

No matter how little your influence, something substantial must enter your hands especially in hard currency.

The nation loses billions of dollars in diverted revenue whenever any round of auction occurs.

OML 110 with high yield OBE oil fields was given Cavendish Petroleum owned by  Alhaji Mai Daribe, the Borno Patriarch in 1996 by Sanni Abacha. OBE oil field has estimated over 500 million barrels of oil.

In layman’s language and using average benchmark of $100 dollars per barrel, translates to $50 billion dollars worth of oil reserve. When you remove the taxes, royalties and sundry duties worth about 60% of the reserve payable over time you get about $20billion dollars worth of oil in the hands of a family.

OPL 246 was awarded to SAPETRO, a company owned by General Theophilus Danjuma, by Sanni Abacha in 1998. Akpo condensate exports about 300,000 barrels of crude daily.

OML 112 and OML 117 were awarded to AMNI International Petroleum Development Company owned by Colonel Sanni Bello in 1999. Sanni Bello is an inlaw to Abdulsalami Abubakar, former Head of State of Nigeria.

OML 115, OLDWOK Field and EBOK field was awarded to Alhaji Mohammed Indimi from Niger State. Indimi is an inlaw to former Military President Ibrahim Babangida.

OML 215 is operated by Nor East Petroleum Limited owned by Alhaji Saleh Mohammed Gambo.

OML 108 is operated by Express Petroleum Company Limited is owned by Alhaji Aminu Dantata.

OML  II3 allocated to Yinka Folawiyo Pet Ltd is owned by Alhaji W.I. folawiyo
ASUOKPU/UMUTU marginal oil fields is operated by Seplat Petroleum. Seplat is owned by Prince Nasiru Ado Bayero, cousin to the Central Bank Governor Lamido Sanusi. This oil field has the capacity of 300,000 barrels of oil daily.

This translates to $30million dollars daily at average benchmark of $100 dollars per barrel. Deducting all sundry taxes, royalties etc , this field can yield $12billion dollars daily for the owners .

Intel owned by Atiku, Yarádua and Ado Bayero has substantial stakes in Nigeria’s oil exploration industry both in Nigeria and Principe and Sao Tome.
AMNI owns two oil blocks OML 112 and OML 117 which it runs Afren plc  and Vitol has substantial stakes in oil blocks.

Afren plc is operating EBOK oil fields in OML 67.  Vitol lifts 300,000 barrels of Nigerian oil daily. Rilwanu Lukman, former OPEC Chairman has stakes in all these named three companies.

OPL 245 was awarded to Malabu Oil& Gas Company by Sanni Abacha. Dan Etete, Abacha’s oil minister owns Malabu Oil.

In 2000, Vice President Atiku Abubakar convinced Obasanjo to revoke OPL 245 given to Malabu Oil. Etete had earlier rejected Atiku’s demand for substantial stakes in the high yield OPL 245 and it attracted the venom of Ota Majesty who revoked the licence. However, in 2006, Obasanjo had mercy on Dan Etete and gave him back his oil block worth over $20 billion dollars.

OPL 289 and OPL 233 was awarded during Obasanjo era to Peter Odili fronts, Cleanwater Consortium, consisting of Clenwater Refinery and RivGas Petroleum and Gas Company. Odili’s brother in law, Okey Ezenwa manages the consortium as Vice Chairman.

OPL 286 is managed by Focus Energy in partnership with BG Group, a British oil concern. Andy Uba has stakes in Focus Energy and his modus operandi is such that you can never see his name in any listings yet he controls OPL and OML through proxies OPL 291 was awarded to Starcrest Energy Nigeria Limited, owned by Emeka Offor by Obasanjo .

Immediately after the award, Starcrest sold the oil block to Addax Petroleum Development Company Limited (ADDAX) Addax paid Sir Emeka Offor a farming fee of $35million dollars and still paid the signature bonus to the government.

Emeka Offor still retains stake in ADDAX operations in Nigeria.
Mike Adenuga’s Conoil is the oldest indigenous oil exploration industry in Nigeria. Conoil has six oil blocks and exports above 200,000 barrels of crude daily.
 
The oil block national cake sharing fiesta could take twists according to the mood of the Commander-in –Chief at the particular time. In 2006, Obasanjo revoked OPL 246 which Abacha gave to Danjuma because he refused to support the tenure elongation bid of the Ota Majesty.

In 2000, Obasanjo had earlier revoked OPL 241 given to Dan Etete under the advice Atiku. However, when the Obasanjo-Atiku faceoff started, the Ota Majesty made a u-turn and handed back the oil block to Etete.
 
During the time of Late President Yarádua , a panel headed by  Olusegun Ogunjana  was set up   to investigate the level of transparency in the award of oil blocks.

The panel recommended that 25 oil blocks awarded by the Obasanjo be revoked because the manner they were obtained failed to meet the best practices in the industry. Sadiq Mahmood, permanent secretary in the Ministry of Petroleum endorsed the report to then president with all its recommendations. As a result of the report Yarádua revoked eleven oil blocks.

In April 2011 Mike Adenuga attempted to buy Shell’s OML 30 for $1.2 billion dollars. The Minister for Petroleum and Nigeria’s most powerful woman refused the sale of the OML30 to Adenuga citing national interest.

This block was later sold to Heritage Oil for $800 million dollars eleven months later.
This oil block business is so lucrative that Danjuma’s Sapetro divested of its investment in Akpo condensate for $1billion dollars.

This business is second to none in Nigeria. That is why any attempt to investigate the activities in this sector will always be futile. The money is so much that they give bribes in millions of dollars.

A birthday gift or child naming gift from an oil block owner to a government official could be as paltry as $2million dollars, and if the official’s father died, the condolence gift could reach mere $3 million dollars. When they want to bribe legislators, it is in millions of dollars and any ongoing investigation ends within weeks.

They are so confident that with excess money they can buy up Nigeria and they are succeeding In the name of competitive bidding, which Obasanjo introduced in 2005, Officials bring companies overnight and through processes best described as secretive and voodooist they award blocks to party faithful, fronts and phoney companies.

They collect gratifications running into hundreds of millions of dollars which is paid into offshore account and the nation loses billions of dollars of revenue to private pockets.
 
During the third term agenda, Obasanjo was deceived that the allocation of oil block to party faithfuls is to fund the third term agenda. With the failure of the third term, the beneficiaries went home with their fortunes and thanked God or Allah for buttering their bread.

Senator Andy Uba co ordinate the award of the last rounds of oil block by Obasanjo in 2005 and 2007. The then minister of petroleum, Edwin Daukoru was a mere errand boy who took instructions from the presidential aide.

The regime of President Goodluck is not showing any signs of changing the status quo. Controversies have trailed the activities of the Minister of Petroleum and many players in the Industry accuse her of demanding stakes from every oil deal.

It is hoped that President Goodluck Jonathan will remember his transformational promise to Nigerians and endeavour to face the hawks in the oil industry.

The angst in the air is so much that if this monster of illegal allocation of oil block is not addressed, the much touted revolution could begin all of a sudden and all who condoned this illegality at the expense of hungry Nigerians may have nowhere to hide.

The religious leaders should tell these oil block beneficiaries, awarders, fronts, brokers and all involved in short changing the Nigerian people to find means or returning all these back to the Nigerian people, through massive development projects.

They should curtail their constant visits to Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem for prayers and attend to the poverty they spread in the land. They should build affordable secondary schools, universities, specialist hospitals, roads, silos, etc for the Nigerian people.

They should fund talent development programmes and sponsor activities capable of alleviating poverty.

The voice of impoverished Nigerians is crying daily and if care is not taken the God who delivered Nigeria from Abacha dark days will visit them with calamities untold. With the rot in this oil block awarding system and other loot all over the Nigerian nation, something worse than revolution may happen

Hollande beats Sarkozy in French first round voting

Socialist champion Francois Hollande stamped his authority on the French presidential race Sunday, winning the first round of polling and setting up a May 6 run-off with incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy.

Hollande won between 28 and 29 percent of the vote in the first round, to Sarkozy’s 25.5 to 27, according to estimates compiled from ballot samples by several polling agencies and obtained by AFP from multiple sources.

But the surprise package was the far-right anti-immigrant candidate Marine Le Pen, who won between 18 and 20 percent — her National Front party’s best showing which complicated forecasts for the second round.

Sarkozy is the only incumbent French president to lose a first round-vote in modern French history and opponents of all stripes queued up to pronounce his political obituary in live broadcasts and speeches to supporters.

“The exceptional score of Francois Hollande brings hope for change,” said senior Socialist campaign official Manuel Valls, branding Sarkozy’s second place finish a “massive rejection.”

Marine Le Pen’s father, National Front founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, refused to say who he would vote for in the second round now that his daughter has been eliminated, but added: “I think Sarkozy is finished.”

Sarkozy’s camp put a brave face on the defeat, insisting that with the votes of the Le Pen camp and that of centrist Francois Bayrou the right had not had a bad night and that Sarkozy would bounce back before May 6.

“The message from the French, which we heard loud and clear, was that this was a vote in a time of crisis,” said Jean-Francois Cope, leader of Sarkozy’s right-wing UMP and a possible future presidential candidate.

“From tomorrow morning, we will no longer be in a case of nine candidates against Nicolas Sarkozy, but we will be one-to-one, Nicolas Sarkozy against Francois Hollande … then I think the match will be different,” he said.

Far left candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon was beaten into fourth place with around 11.7 percent, a disappointment for his supporters after a barnstorming campaign, and called on the left to unite to oust Sarkozy.

Turnout was high at at least 80 percent: down on the 84 percent turnout of 2007 but up significantly on the 72 percent of 2002 and belying fears that a low-key campaign would be capped by mass abstention.

The left has not won a presidential election in a quarter of a century, but with France mired in low growth and rising joblessness, opinion polls had long predicted that the left would beat the right-wing incumbent.

Hollande says Sarkozy has trapped France in a downward spiral of austerity and job losses, while Sarkozy says his rival is inexperienced and weak-willed and would spark financial panic through reckless spending pledges.

The eurozone debt crisis and France’s sluggish growth and high unemployment have hung over the campaign, with Sarkozy struggling to defend his record and Hollande unable to credibly promise spending increases.

“I have never missed a vote, but this time I feel little enthusiasm for the election,” said 62-year-old retired high school teacher Isabelle Provost as she emerged into bright Paris sunshine after casting her ballot.

“Economically there is little difference between the two main candidates,” she said, echoing the sentiment of many others of the right and the left.

Opinion polls and campaigning were banned from midnight on Friday, and will now resume on Monday in the build-up to the May 6 run-off, which Hollande has hitherto been predicted to win by around 55 percent to 45.

Sarkozy and Hollande face a two-week scramble for the line, including a head-to-head televised debate that could be the incumbent’s last chance to change his fortunes.

Air Force accidentally fires missile in Port Harcourt

The Woji area of Port-Harcourt was thrown into pandemonium on Friday when a missile from a Nigeria Air Force jet hit a building in the area.

The incident, which has been confirmed by the Rivers State Police Commissioner,  Mohammed Indabawa,  occurred when a missile accidentally fired from an Airforce jet on routine maintenance at the Airforce mechanic hangar in Port Harcourt hit an uncompleted building about three kilometres away from the jet.

Some residents of the area who spoke with DailyTimes said “the blast was heard as far away as Shell”.

No casualties or injuries have been reported as at press time. Calm seems to be returning to the area after the military established the cause of the blast.

BREAKING NEWS: Supreme Court dismisses Timipre Sylva’s case against PDP, Bayelsa governor

image Former Bayelsa State Governor, Timipre Sylva

The court ruled a while ago, saying the fielding of candidates for elections is an intra-party affair in which courts cannot interfere.

The Supreme Court has dismissed the case brought by embattled former Governor of Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva, challenging the refusal of the Peoples Democratic Party to field him as its candidate for the recent governorship election in the State.

The court ruled a while ago, saying the fielding of candidates for elections is an intra-party affair in which courts cannot interfere.

The judgment appears to have sealed Mr. Sylva’s hope of returning to the Bayelsa State Government House from hiding.

The former governor had slipped into hiding after he was unceremoniously removed from office last February.

However, he had continued to challenge the election of Seriake Dickson as governor, saying he was the properly nominated candidate of the party for the election.

Mr. Sylva is currently being prosecuted for corruption by the EFCC, and the former governor had hoped that the court would rule in his favour, and therefore provide him a constitutional immunity from prosecution.

Naming the subsidy thieves: Gombe Governor, others Indicted

Ibrahim dankwaboMore sordid details of the multi-billion naira petrol subsidy bazaar have emerged. The corrupt Accountant -General of the Federation in 2009, Ibrahim Dankwanbo who is now

Governor of Gombe State made a payment of equal instalments of N999 Million for a record 128 times within 24 hours on the 12th and 13th of  January 2009, totalling N127.872Billion, according to the report of the House of Representatives Ad-Hoc Committee which probed the controversial subsidy.

The confirmed payments from the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, records were made to beneficiaries yet to be disclosed by the Office of Accountant General of the Federation or identified by the committee. 

 

“We however discovered that only 36 marketers were participants under the PSF scheme during this period. Even if there were 128 marketers, it was inconceivable that all would have imported the same quantity of products to warrant equal payment” the report noted. 

In another report, a waste disposal firm got N1.9b subsidy for products it never supplied.

The Ad-Hoc Committee which probed the controversial subsidy also said more than 126 oil marketers and top officials of the Petroleum Products Pricing and Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) should be investigated and prosecuted by anti-graft agencies – if the authorities accept the recommendations of the Committee.

They are to be probed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

But the panel cleared three firms of misconduct. These are: Conoil Plc, AMG Petroleum Energy Ltd and Rainoil Ltd.

The committee discovered that about 3, 171,644, 336 litres of petrol, allegedly subsidised, never got to the market.

Commenting on the looting by the Gombe State Governor, Sylvester Egwunye said Ibrahim Dankwanbo who ran to be the Governor of Gombe state because of the immunity clause he will enjoy for 8years as a Governor He should be sentenced to death. 

“He is a member of PDP were 95% of Nigeria’s corrupt politicians are based. Corruption is legalized in Nigeria by our constitution and judicial system. Our constitution made provision of immunity clause for criminals. With this present system in place it’s time we change our name to Federal Republic of Corruption. “

The committee condemned the subsidy bazaar in the PPPRA where novices and unregistered firms were allowed to import fuel.

It cited an example of two promoters from a waste disposal company in the US who came into the country with a different proposal but got N1, 984,141,091.10 as subsidy for products not supplied.

It said 121 oil marketers should be investigated by anti-graft agencies.

They are as follows: 

•17 marketers that did not obtain FOREX but claimed to have imported petroleum products.

•15 marketers who obtained FOREX but did not import petroleum products.

•71 oil marketers to face probe and refund N230.1billion

•18 oil marketers benefited from the fuel subsidy but failed to appear before the committee. They also refused to submit relevant documents

The report added: “The PPPRA Board Chairman (2009-2011), Senator Ahmadu Ali (GCON, fss) admitted before the committee that the Board under his chairmanship decided to proliferate importers to allegedly break the stranglehold which major marketers had on system.

“He also explained that the increase in number was meant to flood market with the products as a result of the scarcity at that time.

“This was done without setting a target volume, leading to supply glut in the quarter and throughout the year. The figure then became a baseline which was increased at every successive year.

“This carte blanche for entrants was the singular most devastating decision of the Agency. The PSF guidelines on prequalification and monitoring completely broke down and the Scheme became an avenue for all forms of patronage. The number of importers increased from an initial figure of six in 2006, 36 in 2007, 49 in 2009, and 140 in 2011.

“A representative example was that of two promoters who allegedly received an e-mail and came in from the USA with a proposal of waste management with NNPC. Instead, the two promoters came together and incorporated Eco-Regen Ltd. on 3rd August 2010 with corporate address as 3rd Floor, UAC Building Central Business District Wuse Abuja, applied for PPPRA registration on 11th September, 2010, got its first allocation of 15,000 mt on 20th January, 2011 and was paid N1, 984,141,091.10 as subsidy for products not supplied.”

The committee recommended sanctions for some PPPRA chiefs.

• Ex-PPPRA Executive Secretaries, Mr. A. Ibikunle (August 2009 to February 2011) and Mr. Goddy Egbuji(February to August 2011) for further probe and trial by the EFCC, ICPC

•PPPRA’s GM Field Services, ACDO/Supervisor-Ullage Team 1 and ACDO/Supervisor-Ullage Team 2

•All staff in Procurement Unit of PPPRA between 2009 and 2011.

The report added: “All staff of PPPRA involved in the processing of applications by importers, and verification, confirmation and payment of imported products and NNPC should be investigated/prosecuted by the relevant anti-corruption agencies.

“The Executive Secretaries, who were the accounting officers, and under whose watch these abuses were perpetrated that led to the government losing billions of Naira should be held liable.

“We strongly recommend that the Executive Secretaries, who served from January 2009 to October 2011 should be investigated and prosecuted by the relevant anti-corruption agencies.”

The report recommended that “Mr. President should reorganise the Ministry of Petroleum Resources to make it more effective in carrying out the much needed reforms in the oil and gas sector.”

The Nigeria Labour Congress has called for all culprits to be prosecuted.

In a press statement signed by Owei Lakemfa, Acting General Secretary and made available to elombah.com, The Trade Union said “the Report of the House of Representatives ad hoc Committee on fuel subsidy which revealed the criminal looting of the nation’s resources is a vindication of the Nigerian peoples protest on the issue.

The people had for eight days beginning January 9, 2012 gone on strike, held mass rallies and street protests against Government’s mindless increase in the price of fuel, its decision to remove fuel subsidy and the sleaze in the oil industry.

The Report also vindicates the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) position stated on December 20, 2011 before President Goodluck Jonathan. The NLC had at that meeting in the Presidential Villa made allegations of fraud in the subsidy regime and the manipulation of figures in a presentation mader by the Minister of Finance.

Labour also said “Some of the findings of the House Report show clear indication of criminality; therefore it is not enough for private and public organisations like the NNPC and PPPRA to be asked to make refunds. The Government has a duty to bring the officers of such organizations and their supervisors to justice.

“We also hold that the Ministers in the Finance and Petroleum Ministries and their lieutenants under whose watch the NNPC made unconstitutional deductions from the country’s oil income before dumping the balance in the Federation account, should be investigated for culpability.

“The massive looting of the subsidy funds and the corruption in the oil industry are sufficient grounds for the N97 per litre cost of PMS (petrol) to be drastically reduced. The NLC holds that if the government plucks up courage to do local refining, the cost of PMS need not be as high as the old price of N65 per litre.

The NLC commends the House of Representatives and its ad hoc Committee for carrying out the probe and mustering the courage to make the Report public. We also, commend the House leadership for its decision to televise live, the debates on the Report.

We are aware of claims that the Committee Report has been “doctored”. It is incumbent on those making such claims to make public the “Original” Report.

The NLC calls on the Presidency and the National Assembly to ensure that the findings of the Report are speedily followed up and implemented. The country cannot continue to be bled by unscrupulous people.
