Kaduna Nzeogwu Coup : A post mortem. Let’s tell ourselves the truth.

Every 15th January since I became grown up and read papers, I come across different versions of the story of the 1966 coup. The favourite one is the ‘blaming Igbos’ game by the North and some Yorubas. Recently I got hold of some documentary about Nigeria before the coup and I heard Sar’duana saying that the Igbos want to dominate everyone and everybody, at least something like that, not long before the 1966 putsh. Nigeria’s foundation was built on distrust and that the Nzeogwu was later defined as an Igbo coup and is still being refer to as an Igbo coup today by many isn’t in anyway surprising. We still largely hate each other and we still blame each other for Nigeria’s problems. A poor Igbo man or a poor man from the Niger Delta is always blaming the poor Hausa man for causing Nigeria’s problems. Even among the intelligensia this blame game is prevalent. This is the mindset that led to the destruction of Nigeria and not the 1966 coup. In my opinion that coup was inevitable. It was just a matter of time. If Nzeogwu and his team had not struck in 1966, some other group would have, maybe not in 1966. The excitement that welcome the coup will tell any student of history that Nigerians were disenchanted with the government of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa and co. The government was percieved as incompetent, corrupt and lacked ideas.

Major Patrick Nzeogwu Kaduna, executed his own part of the revolution perfectly, I believe without sentiments in a very complex country that even the coupists did not understand. The coup failed largely because others did not execute their own mission. The coup failed because the coup was hijacked and Aguiyi Ironsi maybe responsible for most of the problems that later followed, even his own death in another mutiny, the counter coup led by Northern Nigerian army because he failed to read the signs. He was blinded by his own personal ambition to be the Head of State.

From all my research and study of the 1966 coup, I believe the first coup was planned by a group of Majors who wanted change. That most of them were Igbos and later Igbo leaders were not among the casualties was the issue collaborated the suspicious that followed the definition of the coup by both foreign and local media.

The Igbos paid the price for that coup. They paid dearly. We cannot continue to blame the Igbos for that bitter part of our history by writing whatever we like and painting it as history. History is very deep. I will leave you with this excerpt from one of Max Siollun’s article.

“Even in death, Nzeogwu was still respected by federal and northern troops. Domkat Bali referred to him as:
“a nice, charismatic and disciplined officer, highly admired and respected by his colleagues. At least he was not in the habit of being found in the company of women all the time messing about with them in the officers mess, a pastime of many young officers then….we believed that he was a genuinely patriotic officer who organised the 1966 coup with the best of intentions who was let down by his collaborators….If we had captured him alive, he would not have been killed. I believe he probably would have been tried for his role in the January 15 coup, jailed and probably freed after some time. His death was regrettable.””

LET THE STORY OF ANTHONY JOSHUA INSPIRE YOU

Anthony Joshua’s Dad, Mr Robert Oluwafemi Olaseni is a typical Nigerian father who never gave up on his son.

Like every good Nigerian father, he gave his boy the best education and enrolled him in one of Nigeria’s Ivy Secondary Schools, Mayflower Ikenne owned by the late patriot – Pa Tai Solarin.

After his marriage broke down with Joshua’s mother, Joshua moved to England.

Joshua was a bright kid and an athlete but he lost his way and ended up a bricklayer. His father was embarrassed but did not give up on him, knowing the dream he had for his son, he supported him when he took up boxing. In 2009, Joshua became even more frustrated and lost his way again. He became a street fighter and was detained by the police and put on remand.

He was reduced to the level of a low life common criminal and had to wear an electronic tag around his ankle like a terrorist after his release. His father was upset with him but kept believing in him.

In March 2011, the year Goodluck Jonathan became President of Nigeria, Anthony Joshua was pulled over by the police for over speeding in Colindale, North London.

He was found with eight ounces of Indian Hemp hidden in a sports bag in his Mercedes-Benz. He was charged with possession with intent to supply a class B drug. The offence carried a 14 year jail sentence. He pleaded guilty and the court handed him a 12 month community order.
Joshua lost his place in the GB boxing squad and had to do 100 hours of community work unpaid.

His father pulled his ears and spoke some hard truth into his head but he remained faithful and kept praying for his son.

Today, Anthony Joshua looks back and says he would never have made it without his father’s strict love. In June 2019 on the night he lost to Ruiz, his father was so upset with Hearn, Joshua’s promoter he almost beat the man up in the ring after the fight, trust a good Nigerian father.

Afterwards, he turned to his son and whispered into his ears “you fought like a Lion tonight but next time fight smart like a Fox”. Joshua took his advice.

On Saturday, December 7th, 2019, Anthony Joshua fought like a fox to beat Ruiz and became King once again, with his father supporting him, by the ring side.

You may have failed countless times; a lot of people might have concluded your chapter in their history book, but always know that failure is an event, and not a person. Know that your destiny is in God’s hands and not in the hands of any man.

Stay focused, be INTENTIONAL about your life’s goals, and your end shall be GREAT!

7 Governors That Had Their Elections Nullified in Nigeria

Sequel to the sacking of now former Governor of Imo State, Emeka Iheadioha, by the Supreme Court on Tuesday, our writer observes that courts have nullified elections of several governors in the past; but while some were handed some lifeline to go for re-run elections which many of them actually won, many others were not that lucky as they were sacked outright by the courts.

Following were the governors and reasons they were sacked.

1. Chris Ngige (Anambra)
The first sitting Governor that will be removed by a court was Chris Ngige of Anambra.
Ngige, who succeeded Chinwoke Mbadinuju in the 2003 elections, saw his administration facing turbulent period throughout his reign which culminated into his eventual removal by the Appeal Court on March 14, 2006.
The Court of Appeal sitting in Enugu, subsequently the court declared Peter Obi of All Progressive Grand Alliance party (APGA) winner. The court of appeal upheld the ruling of the Anambra State Election Petition Tribunal, which had earlier confirmed Obi as the winner of the election.
Ngige of the Peoples Democratic Party had a running battle with his political godfather Chris Uba who got tacit support from the then President Olusegun Obasanjo.
This had led to the abduction and unconstitutiona
l removal of the governor from office, the stripping of his security detail and arson and destruction of Anambra state properties by gangs believed to be Chris Uba’s loyalists.
He finally lost the battle with the declaration from the court which sacked him with less than one year to the end of his four-year tenure.

2. Segun Oni (Ekiti State)
In what looked like a political coup, People Democratic Party hijacked five of the six states under the then Action Congress in the 2003 elections. Only Bola Tinubu of Lagos was able to hold on to his seat but the party regrouped in 2007 polls to wrestle powers from the PDP.
In what appeared to be the most flawed elections in Nigerian history, several candidates of the AC were allegedly robbed by the incumbent governors.
One of those elections results challenged at the court were that of Segun Oni of Ekiti state who ran on the platform of the PDP and declared winner.
The Court of Appeal sitting in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital on Oct 15, 2010 declared Dr. Kayode Fayemi of Action Congress, winner of Ekiti State re-run governorship election and ordered that he should be sworn in immediately as the duly elected governor of the state.
In a unanimous judgment read by the president of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami, the court ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Governor Segun Oni of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and give it to Fayemi.
The appellate court held that Fayemi won both the April 14, 2007 election and the re-run election of April 25, 2009 with highest lawful votes cast at the polls.
According to the court, the AC candidate won the re-run election by 10,955 votes.

3. Andy Uba (Anambra State)
One of the Uba brothers that were political gladiators in Anambra suffered the ignominy of being arguably the governor with the shortest reign.
Ubah who was an aide of Obasanjo contested the gubernatorial elections in 2007 and won and was sworn in May same year but by June 14, exactly 14 days after he assumed office, the politician was removed as Governor by the judgment of the Supreme Court in Abuja.
Peter Obi who had defeated Ngige in court to become the governor of the state had challenged the conduct of 2007 election, insisting he had only spent nine months as a governor and the election should not have held.
In a landmark judgment, the Supreme Court ruled that former governor Obi should go back to the Government House as governor of the state till March 17, 2010. The court also ordered that the incumbent Governor, Uba, should vacate office as he ceases to be governor.
In the lead judgment, Justice Katsina Alu said INEC erred in law by conducting election in Anambra State when Obi had not served his four-year term.
The court ruled that the four year tenure of Obi commenced from the day he was sworn in and will terminate on 17 March 2010.

4. Prof Oserhiemen Osunbor (Edo State)
Benin City and other towns and villages erupted in wild jubilation On November 11, 2008, when a federal Appeal Court sitting in Benin City upheld the ruling of the state’s elections petitions tribunal, declaring Adams Oshiomole of the Action Congress of Nigeria to be the Governor of Edo State
The Elections Petitions Tribunal sitting in Benin City, the Edo State capital had ruled that it was the former President of the Nigeria Labour Congress and Governorship Candidate of the Action Congress Oshiomole, that won the April 2007 Governorship Elections in Edo State, and not Prof Osunbor of the Peoples Democratic Party as claimed by the Prof Maurice Iwu-led ‘Independent’ National Electoral Commission (INEC).
In a judgement that lasted over two hours and a half, Justice Umaru Farouk Abdullahi president of the Appeal Court held that the Action Congress (AC) candidate scored highest vote, in the April 14, 2007 governorship poll in Edo State. The court thus dismissed the appeal filed by Professor Oserheimen Osunbor of the People’s Democratic Party.
Backed by other members of the Appeal Court, like Justices Isa Ayo Salami, John Fabiyi, Amina Audi and Uzo Anyanwu, the court ordered that Oshiomhole was the duly elected governor and the certificate of returns should therefore be given to him immediately.

5. Olusegun Agagu (Ondo State)
As a testimony to the alleged fraud perpetrated by the ruling party PDP in South West, the Appeal Court upheld the ruling of the Ondo State Elections Petitions Tribunal, which had nullified the election of Governor Olusegun Agagu of Ondo State, and declared Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, governorship candidate of the Labour Party in the 14 April, 2007 polls, winner of the election.
The unanimous judgment, handed down by Appeal Court President, Justice Umaru Abdullahi, ended the nearly six-year rule of Agagu, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who began his first term on May 29, 2003.
According to the court, the Labour Party candidate won 198,269 votes while the PDP candidate, Agagu won 128, 669 votes.
By this, the court stated that Mimiko won 25 per cent of the valid votes in 13 out of the 18 local governments in the state, thereby fulfilling the constitutional provision, which states that a candidate must win at least two-thirds of the votes cast in 13 local governments.

6. Olagunsoye Oyinlola (Osun State)
Another by-product of the flawed elections of 2007, after more than three years of legal battles the Appeal Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State on Nov 26, 2010 declared Engr. Rauf Aregbesola of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) winner of the 2007 governorship election in the state, awarding him 198,799 votes, against the ousted Olagunsoye Oyinlola’s 172,880.
Delivering judgment, the head of the five-member appeal panel, Justice Clara Ogunbiyi declared Aregbesola the winner and ordered that he should be sworn in immediately. It was a unanimous judgment.
Aregbesola had in his petition prayed the court to cancel the elections in 10 local government areas of the state where violence and electoral malpractices marred the elections.
In the judgment, read for about five hours by Justice Clara Bata Ogunbiyi, the court affirmed, INEC did not conduct election in accordance to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and in accordance with the Electoral Act�. It thus annulled the election held in 10 local governments in dispute saying that the allegations against the election in the 10 disputed local government areas were valid and genuine.

7. Emeka Ihedioha (Imo State)
The Supreme Court on January 14, 2020 nullified the election of Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party as the governor of Imo State.
The apex court declared Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the March 9 governorship election in the state.
The seven-member panel of the Supreme Court led by Chief Justice Tanko Muhammad gave the unanimous decision in Abuja.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Mr Ihedioha, a former deputy speaker of the House of Representatives winner of the governorship election in Imo.

Honesty and Integrity pays

At the point of death a man, Bakare Ologbenla, called his children and after praying for them, he advised them to follow his footsteps so that they can have peace of mind in all that they do.

The youngest child, Folasade, a female, looked at others and yelled, DADDY, ITS UNFORTUNATE YOU ARE DYING WITHOUT A DIME IN YOUR BANK ACCOUNT, PERSONALLY, I CAN’T EMULATE YOU. OTHER FATHER’S THAT YOU TAG AS BEING CORRUPT, THIEF OF PUBLIC FUNDS LEFT HOUSES AND PROPERTIES FOR THEIR CHILDREN; EVEN THIS HOUSE WE LIVE IN IS A RENTED APARTMENT, SORRY, I CAN’T EMULATE YOU, JUST GO, LETS CHART OUR OWN COURSE, LETS PADDLE OUR OWN CANOE. Few moments later, their father gave up the ghost.

Three years later, Folasade went for interview in a multinational company. The interview panel already penciled down a candidate for the highly covetted post but wanted to comlete the formality of interviewing all applicants on the list. As soon as Folasade sat before the interview panel, the Chairman of the committee asked, “Which Ologbenla is yours” and the Folasade replied, “I am Folasade Ologbenla. My dad Bakare Ologbenla is now late he died a poor man… then the Chairman cuts in, O MY GOD, YOU ARE BAKARE OLOGBENLA’S DAUGHTER? He turned to other members and said THIS BAKARE MAN WAS THE ONE THAT SIGNED MY MEMBERSHIP FORM INTO THE INSTITUTE OF CHARTERED ADMINISTRATORS AND HIS RECOMMENDATION EARNED ME WHERE I AM TODAY. HE DID ALL THESE FREE. I DONT EVEN KNOW HIS ADDRESS, HE NEVER KNEW ME FROM ADAMS, HE JUST DID IT FOR ME. He turned to Folasade, I HAVE NO QUESTION FOR YOU, CONSIDER YOURSELF AS HAVEN GOTTEN THIS JOB, RESUME TOMORROW, YOUR LETTER WILL BE WAITING FOR YOU.

Folasade Ologbenla became the corporate affairs manager of the company with two cars, one official ad one for private use, attached to the office, with a duplex and two drivers and a salary of N500,000 per month excluding allowances and other Esta-code when she travel outside Nigeria.
After two years of working in the company,the Group Managing Director of the company came from America to announce his intention to resign and needed a replacement. A personality with high integrity was sought after, again the company’s Consultant nominated Folasade Ologbenla.

In an interview, I asked her the secret of her success and the sudden sky rocketing profile and in tears, she replied, MY DADDY PAVED THESE WAYS FOR ME. IT WAS AFTER HE DIED THAT I KNOW THAT HE WAS FINANCIALLY POOR BUT STINKINGLY RICH IN INTEGRITY, DISCIPLINE AND HONESTY. I asked again, why she is weeping since she is no longer a kid as to miss her dad still after a long time. She replied, AT THE POINT OF DEATH, I INSULTED MY DAD FOR BEING A HONEST MAN OF INTEGRITY. I HOPE HE WILL FORGIVE ME IN HIS GRAVE NOW. I DIDN’T WORK FOR ALL THESE, HE DID IT FOR ME TO JUST WALK IN.
So finally i asked, WILL YOU FOLLOW YOUR FATHERS FOOT STEPS AS HE REQUESTED? And her simple answer is I NOW ADORE THE MAN, I HAVE A BIG PICTURE OF HIS IN MY LIVING ROOM AND AT THE ENTRANCE OF MY HOUSE. HE DESERVES WHATEVER I HAVE AFTER GOD.

Are you like Folasade Ologbenla, it pays to build name, the reward doesn’t come quickly but it will come however long it may take and it lasts longer.
INTEGRITY, DISCIPLINE, SELF CONTROL AND FEAR OF GOD MAKES MAN WEALTHY, NOT THE FAT BANK ACCOUNT. Live a good heritage for your children, I am building a good name for my children, not a fat bank account.

Notes from DrChiefAlhaji Rasak Okoya@80 Birthday Party Documentary/Interview:

* My dad had many wives but I will advise all to have just few wives if possible only one or two. I am serious about this.

* Have patience and work for the money. I worked for 60 years before I am what I am today. And I am still working. I am now 80 years old. Sade is now doing 80% of the work with the help of the children especially her own, controlling over 5,000 staff. I trained Sade. She learned faster and performing more than expectations. I am extremely lucky here.

* I made money bringing in shoes selling like hot cakes. I was selling gold. Then household appliances. There is no house you will enter that you will not see an Eleganza product. I am always 100% honest in my biz dealings thus the oyinbos trust me and always allow me to go with their products. I always pay back. Me and my friend Adedoyin of Doyin Industries, we are always honest in our biz dealings. He said musicians especially Obey made his Eleganza brand very popular. He promised to help artists !!! He said he always vacate his mansion to be used by Nollywood for free !!!

* By the time I was 40, I told Doyin I was no more working bc I was already in real money. I built a skyscraper in Ikoyi. I felt why working again. Haaaaaa, opportunities kept on coming and I am still working till today.

* Today I have 35 hectares of land in Lekki/ Ajah. I have 🏢 buildings in VI, Apapa even in Mainland in Oregun/Alausa.

So many big names attended the White Party. Jagaban stole the show. OONI came in with much noise. Osinbajo was the only one wearing a dark color. Sade was in a yellow big dress. Okoya himself in full white agbada and a lorry load of necklace gold. Dangote, the richest man in Africa was dazed and was just looking. Island Club Members dominated the party. The cake was designed like an estate. OBJ was there in full agbada white but very quiet. All the much feared money guys were the errand men of the day.

Haaaaaa, uncountable musicians all shouting the praises of Sade especially. Roll calls: K1 the main act of the day !!!, Obey, Sunny, Musiliu, Shina Peters etc When it was Davido’s turn, the dancing floor was taken over by the energetic butter big children of NIGERIAN money men led by Sade herself. By the way what’s Davido doing with that big towel that was disturbing him ???

OBJ, OSINBAJO, OKOYA AND SADE SAT ON THE MAIN CENTRE TABLE !!! Okoya kept on talking to the dazed Osinbajo. Doyin, Ojora, Adebutu etc were not dazed but very elderly and quiet. Biola Shagaya, Moji Tejuosho( one of Okoya’s daughters), Kemi Nelson are errands girls. Oba Elegusi fear fear, bc the rich elders were too many.

Jagaban is not dazed !!! K1 was permanently on Jagaban. Sanwoolu was just a boy that night !!!

Ireeee ooo kabiti kanka !!!

THE JOE BIDEN EXAMPLE

For all her Foreign Policy misadventures the US has raised the bar of governance and responsible leadership that the world and those who seek to truly serve the people must learn from. Joe Biden had been in public office for 43 years. He was elected into the Senate at 29. Served in the Senate for 35years and 8years as Vice President yet he couldn’t afford to pay for the expensive cancer treatment of his son who was the Attorney General of his State of Delaware.

The son was an Iraq war veteran who served in the Army before he became Attorney General. Biden had to offer his house for sale to be able to pay for the medical care of his son, of course the son must have spent himself out before Biden, the father could come in to help pay the bill. Obama had to stop him from selling his house and offered to pay for the medical care from his own personal money. Unfortunately the son died but not after the father had given all his best.

Delaware is very close to Washington and he had come to Washington by train from Delaware everyday for work at the Capitol Hill and back home as a Senator. He will join the train back home on January 20th when he ends his tour of duty as the Vice President of United States. Delaware loves Biden for his years of service to the State and the people of United State. They call him the great son of Delaware.

The point here is a man served for 35years as a Senator and 8years as Vice President and no tonnes of money buried inside his compound and bank accounts. How and where do politicians in US get their contentment that our own here can’t go and find same. Leadership is about service. It is not a place to become billionaires and millionaires. For Biden, nothing but my admiration and respect.

The power of ONE VOTE

The power of ONE VOTE

“There is awesome power in every single person created by God.

If you don’t think so; in 1645 one vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England.

In 1776 one vote gave America the English language instead of German.

In1875 one vote changed France from a monarchy to republic.

And unfortunately in 1923 one vote gave Adolph Hitler control of Nazi Party in Germany.

Your vote is of great value, use it wisely for the good of our future.

Joseph Stalin and the live chicken

During the Soviet dictatorship of Joseph Stalin. He was a brutal dictator with mind of his own. On one fateful day, Stalin came to Politburo meeting with a live chicken. Standing in front of audience, He started to pluck the feathers of the live chicken off one by one.
The chicken trembled in pain, blood tricking out of its pores. It gave out grievous cries, but Stalin being a cruel dictator continued without remorse plucking the feathers out until the chicken was completely naked.
After which, he threw the chicken on the ground. The naked chicken was staggering in pain. Stalin goes into his pocket and from his pockets, he took out some chicken food and started to throw it at the poor & hapless creature.
The poor chicken in pain started eating and Stalin started walking towards his seat. As he walked away, he kept dropping some feeds on the floor & the chicken followed him and sat feeding from his feet.
Joseph Stalin then turned to members of his political party leadership. He said, “This chicken represents the people”.
“You must disempower them, brutalise them, beat them up, starve them and then leave them”.
“If you do this, go into your pocket & give them peanuts when they are in that helpless and desperate situation, they will blindly follow you for the rest of their life, worshiping you”.
“They will think you are a hero forever. They will forget that, you’re responsible for their sorrowful situation in the first place.”
Breath taking, isn’t it ?
Now! Take a look at all the people some Nigerians are busy defending on social media.
Take a look at those they call their heroes. They are the same people who plunged Nigeria into the situation she is. They are the same people who are responsible for their predicament.

SUPREME COURT VERDICT ON IMO GUBER: BEFOFE YOU CONDEMN THE APEX COURT

I have read a lot of commentaries over the recent Supreme Court judgment declaring Senator Hope Uzodinma as the duly elected Governor of Imo State. Many have wondered how a candidate who came 4th in the election would be declared the winner by the Court. Some others have argued that the court at worst should have ordered for a rerun/run off election. A few orders have submitted that in view of the recent decision of the apex court regarding the dual candidacy of Uche Nwosu, the Supreme Court ought not to have declared Hope the winner of the governorship election. I shall attempt to address these issues seriatim.

Firstly, Hope Uzodinma’s petition was predicated on the fact that INEC unlawfully cancelled results in most polling units where he scored majority votes. He contended that INEC lacks the power to nullify the election of a polling unit after the Presiding Officer had declared the result in that polling unit. He further argued that if you calculate the votes in the polling units unlawfully cancelled by INEC and add it to the existing ones, he scored the highest number of valid votes cast and he ought to have been declared the winner of the election. Hope Uzodinma through his counsel tendered those results sheets where he won and INEC did not deny that those results were written by their agents (the Presiding Officers). There were no contradictory results tendered by the Respondents in respect of the polling units where Uzodinma claimed he won. The law is already settled that once results have been declared by a presiding officer, the INEC has no power to nullify or cancel the result. Only a competent election petition tribunal has such power.

Secondly, the Apex Court could not have ordered for a rerun or run off because Hope Uzodinma met the constitutional requirement of securing 25% votes in 2/3 of the Local Governments in the State and he won the highest number of valid votes cast in the election. In any event, the petitioner/appellant Hope Uzodinma did not seek such a relief from the tribunal.

Thirdly, the argument on the effect of the Uche Nwosu’s judgment was not canvassed at the Supreme Court in the Uzodinma’s case. The Supreme Court has no power to delve into issues not canvassed or presented before it. There was no cross appeal or issue canvassed at the apex court on whether Hope Uzodinma was a candidate of the APC in the IMO Governorship election or whether his appeal has become incompetent in view of the recent decision of the apex court regarding the dual candidacy of Uche Nwosu. In any event, Hope Uzodinma was not a party to that other case nullifying the candidacy of Uche Nwosu.

The decision of the apex court is not meant to massage the sentiments of a few persons. The Court of law decides a case based on the issues formulated before it and marrying the evidence led at the trial to the law. That to me, is what the Supreme Court just did. We however await the full judgment of the Court so we can make better meaning out of it. We only have to respect it. Of course intellectual critiques are welcomed.
