.@StellaOduah #‎AviationScam‬ disguised as Airport Renovation 26 point Commentary by Kayode @ogundamisi

I made 26 Comments on twitter regarding @StellaOduah and‪#‎AviationScam‬ disguised as Airport Renovation. Someone did kindly compile it here. Please read.

1. @stellaoduah if you love ‪#‎Nigeria‬ you will voluntarily report some of the contractors awarded 'airport renovation scam' to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)
2. Dear followers I will be reviewing the 'Airport Renovation' contracts awarded by @stellaoduah as Aviation Minister under #AviationScam.
3. 1 of the highlight of @stellaoduah was the commendable project called 'Airport Renovation' but it ended up being one huge #AviationScam.
4. @stellaoduah you awarded Archvisual Solutions got paid N615,857,357.09 for 'upgrade of MMIA 11 terminal' but MMIA11 is a PPP & no renovation.
5. @stellaoduah why did ArchVisual walk away with N615,857,357.09 when they had no terminal renovation to make in MMIA11? #AviationScam.
6. @stellaoduah Ngonyama Okpanum collected N99,179,509.17 as consultancy remodelling of CAL,PH,YOLA, JOS & ENUGU terminals. #AviationScam.
7. @stellaoduah issue is whilst Okpanum walked away with N99,179,509.17 as 'consultancy' they never met with any on site firm. #AviationScam.
8. @stellaoduah now let us point out the amazing ABUJA CAR PARK extension contract. Maczoll ltd got N838,875,488.69 & work noted COMPLETED.
9. @stellaoduah anyone who flies via Abuja Airport will know that 'carpark extension' is far from 'completed' Maczoll ltd made free money.
10. @stellaoduah curious thing about Abuja car park contract is Maczoll got paid ALL its fee N838,875,488.69 b4 moving to site ‪#‎AirportScam‬
11. @stellaoduah how can you pay Maczoll all money even when they had not mobilise ONE WORKER to site? Abuja Aiport car park is a disgrace.
12. @stellaoduah Obis's ltd got N697,886,560.88 for upgrade of PH terminal building Airport and it is noted as 95% completed. #AirportScam
13. @stellaoduah if U've been to PH Airport lately that terminal building isn't 95% completed AT ALL Obis's ltd made a cool N697,886,560.88
14. @stellaoduah even Enugu & Owerri Airport Terminal buildings did not escape #AviationScam Enugu is claimed 100% Completed Oweri Completed
15 Obis's ltd got N598,095,100.69 for Enugu &Mesh Ltd got N459,070,736.28 for Owerri both claimed to have COMPLETED renovation #AviationScam
16. @stellaoduah what is mind mysterious about #AviationScam is that what is stated COMPLETED in your handover note tallies not with REALITY
17. @stellaoduah U spent a total of N7,537,636,232.61 under phase 1 for reconstruction & N7,793,222,484.17 for consultancy under phase 1.
18. @stellaoduah real #Aviationscam is how actual reconstruction N7,537,636,232.61 & consultancy N7,793,222,484.17 almost tallied?‪#‎weird‬
19. @stellaoduah I'VE spreadsheets up to Phase3. I will not even bother going any further, please review & help #Nigeria by speaking to EFCC
20. @stellaoduah it is obvious to me Airport Remodelling was a disguise for #AviationScam Airports now have ABANDONED PROJECTS & dilapidation
21. @stellaoduah if money paid to contractors had been well utilised U would have had legacy of handing over top class terminal buildings
22. @stellaoduah bright spot in #AviationScam is that GAT1 terminal was evidently completed but was it a scam to convince GEJ to release yams?
23. I am further amazed that you did not spare Enugu & Owerri Airport from #AviationScam one would think they would have been saved.
24. @stellaoduah the implication of Nigerian Airports Terminal building #AviationScam is that we now need more money to completed projects
25. @stellaoduah I hope you will have a rethink and voluntarily assist @EFCC_Nigeria in tracking down those firms involved in #AviationScam.
26. @stellaoduah I respectfully brought #AviationScam to your attention just in case you are an innocent victim. Best Regards Kayode Ogundamisi

Who Starved Biafra? A Call For Justice! Revisiting Letter by Robert S. Goldstein to Odumegwu Ojukwu


Robert S. Goldstein
Public Relations Representative of Biafra in the United States
(Published in the Morning Post, Lagos, August 17, 1968) 

As your Public Relation's Representative in the United States, it is my distasteful duty to tender my resignation based on the following points: 

POINT 1 - In November of 1967 when we met in Umuahia, you and your Cabinet were very impressive. You told me of the woes of your little Republic, that thousands of people had died, were dying and more were prepared to die for freedom's sake.

You and your Cabinet told me you believed world opinion would help your cause if you could get your story across.

You expressed the opinion that very few if any people in the United States knew of the plight of the Biafrans.

You asked me to tell the world that Britain had teamed up with Russia in a conspiracy with the Federal Government of Nigeria to murder every Ibo in Biafra. You suggested I use my talents to induce the Press to write about the Biafran side of the war, as at that time all news came out of Lagos.

You will recall I did not take the asssignment that day but stayed on several days before deciding to take that job.

To help win the peace At that time I stated to you and your cabinet that I was taking the assignment making it crystal clear I would try my best to help win the peace not the war.

POINT TWO - I immediately arranged the first world Press conference in Biafra inviting the US Press as well as journalists and television people from England, France, Switzerland, Africa and other parts of the Globe. This was the first news break through. I arranged regular trips into Biafra for the world Press, helped set up stringers, etc., so that your statements and the statements of your Cabinet would be heard.

At that time, I was absolutely positive you were right and your cause was a just one in the best interests of the free world and your countrymen.

POINT THREE - Finally the Republic of Biafra was recognized first by Tanzania, then quickly followed by Gabon, the Ivory Coast and Zambia. Our public relations work was paying off, world opnion was starting to side with us.

Peace talks were arranged at Kampala. I thought that if anyone walked away from the table it would be the Federal Government. But to my dismay it was Biafra that left the Conference. After all the fighting and killing, I knew that peace would not come easy but I could not understand leaving the Peace Conference until the last point was negotiated and the avenue explored.

POINT FOUR - Then urgent telex messages were received from 'Biafra' telling of tens of thousands of people starving in the refugee camps, the villages, the bush country - stating if something werent done in the next few months over a million women, children and aged would be starved to death. 

I immediately contacted the Press, urgently petitioned the State Department for action on their part. Food, medicine and milk were sent to the only available ports open for immediate shipment to 'Biafra' via land routes through Federal and Biafra territory, under the auspices of world organizations such as the International Red Cross among others.

Then came the incredible answer from 'Biafra' that land corridors could not be acceptable until there was a complete ceasefire, and that an airlift was the only solution to feed the starving.
You then appeared before the various Heads of State and representatives of the OAU at Niamey in Niger. I fully expected you to at least accept the world help that was offered your starving throngs. However, you delayed, hoping to use these unfortunates with world sympathy on their side as a tool to further your ambition to achieve war concessions at the upcoming peace talks in Addis Ababa. Thus innocent victims continue to perish needlessly of starvation, the most agonising death that can befall any living creature.

POINT FIVE - This was incredible to me. I am now convinced that I have been used by you and your cabinet to help in military adventures of your origin....using your starving hordes as hostages to negotiate a victory.

If at some later date, following the issuance of this letter, you do concede to allow a mercy land corridor...would you expect me to agree to espouse before the world Press the incredible delay of your decision. What explanation could I honestly give for the needless prolongation of this horror.

Inconceivable acts

I pray this communication may in some small way influence you to move affirmatively, allowing the mercy land corridor to be born.

It is inconceivable to me that you would stop the feeding of thousands of your countrymen (under auspicies of world organizations such as the International Red Cross, World Council of Churches and many more) via a land corridor which is the only practical way to bring in food to help at this time. It is inconceivable to me that men of good faith would try to twist world opinion in such a manner as to deceive people into believing that the starvation and hunger that is consuming 'Biafra' is a plot of Britain, Nigeria and others to commit genocide.

POINT SIX - I cannot in all conscience serve you any longer. Nor can I be a party to suppressing the fact that your starving thousands have the food, medicine and milk available to can and is ready to be delivered through international organizations to you. Only your constant refusal has stopped its delivery.

I am this date, tendering my resignation and am returning to Mr. Collins Obih of the African Continental Bank all the fees you have given me (Letter of Credit No. 354 $400,000 US.)
I have sent your representative in New York a Bond in the amount of 800.000 pounds that I was holding in your behalf. I have also this date, sent the Bond of 200,000 pounds issues by the Central Bank of Nigeria back to them for disposal.

POINT SEVEN - I am now convinced that one Nigeria is the only solution to peace. I also call upon you Mr. Ojukwu to allow your starving people to be fed. Their well-being is of deep concern to me as well as other right thinking people of the world. Your acting in the utmost haste in this matter is in my opinion the first step toward any lasting peace in your country."

Maiduguri on 27th October 2015

Bang! Bang! Bang!
It is a bomb!
It is a gun!
Boom! Boom! Boom! 
It is a gun!
It is a bomb!
Feet as hasty as a Jet!
Leaving footpaths for devils trail!
Chibok! Biu! Gwoza!

Now they gather for us!
They whom we trust and hope!
Vultures waiting to devour!
For they laugh smile and lie!
Clapping! Cladded in their best robes!
The Sahara sunshine penetrates jealously!
As we wonder if it is all about us!

We are dressed in borrowed robes!
Leaving behind a river of sorrow!
Not once did we smile!
As we Wonder Waiver and Shudder!
Not once did we smile!
As they Laugh Smile and Lie!
For they know not Chibok Biu and Gwoza.
