How a lot ‘dollars’ (if you want, put ‘money’)
does a man really want in life? How a lot cash does a sane and rational human being have to reside modestly and
even comfortably with out stealing, looting public funds
or participating in shady offers?
Fairly frankly, what sort of greed makes a man purchase public funds so
gluttonously with out giving a rattling like Andrew Yakubu, former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian Nationwide Petroleum Company (NNPC), did with the sums of $9.7 (N2.96 billion) and £74,000 (N28.19 million) recovered
in a property which allegedly belongs to him within the Sabo Tasha space of Kaduna if not absolute wickedness and outright godlessness?
These, amongst different questions, are what I’ve been asking myself since pictures of the fearsome mountain of
dollars and atrocious pounds recovered from the sixty two-12 months outdated Yakubu emerged within the media late final week
following a raid by the Financial and Monetary Crimes Fee
(EFCC) triggered by the patriotic alarm of a whistleblower.
On this similar nation the place the mere sum of N1, 000 solely has despatched some residents to early graves
on account of the unhappy situation that they couldn’t afford to purchase lifesaving medicine,
to then see a single particular person in custody of such sums recovered from Yakubu
undoubtedly acquired by means of dubious means, is nothing however insanity and inhumanity
at its very peak. And to assume that he was content material permitting the funds idle away contained in the fireproof
protected he saved them with out being involved about placing these billions of naira to good use
that would add some worth to the nationwide financial system!
Actually, what sort of man is that this?
Yakubu’s disclosure that the sums had been gifts shouldn’t be taken severely.
That’s a ruse. However then, they might properly be.
That’s why he wants to call names if he desires to be taken severely.
However frankly, he can’tbobo us. They monies had been kickbacks.
Plain and easy. They had been proceeds of corruption and abuse of workplace.
Now, we all know with none iota of doubt: Yakubu, this Ahmadu Bello College-educated Chemical Engineer, is without doubt one of the wicked and
shameless leaders we’re unlucky to have whose conscience haven’t
solely been seared with scorching iron however have additionally unarguably bought their souls to the satan! Nigerians will certainly always remember.
In all of those, nonetheless, it’s cheering that Justice Zainab Abubakar, of the Federal Excessive Court docket sitting
in Kano, has since ordered the forfeiture of the recovered sums.
Though the forfeiture is non permanent, one seems to be ahead
with bated curiosity to listen to Yakubu squeal on the identities of those that gave him the blood dollars and what favours he granted them for which they might
respect him with such cash as we noticed paraded on Television. I actually await his prosecution for the
crimes he dedicated in opposition to the Nigerian state as GMD of NNPC,
a company which has roughly turn out to be negatively reworked to a rogue one due to its
string of company thieves and scoundrels in excessive
In the meantime, Nigerians ought to pay no consideration to a bunch just like the Southern Kaduna
Coalition of pros (SKOP) which launched an announcement Thursday faulting Yakubu’s detention and alleging that some individuals had been plotting to tug down their “illustrious son and sacrifice him to the canine as a technique of weakening the robust amongst us forward of the 2019 basic election.”
Buddies, that’s the kind of nation we have
now created for ourselves when some individuals have been so compromised
by filthy lucre that they not know what’s good and what’s dangerous, what’s sane and what’s insane, and what’s applicable and what’s not.
Truthfully, they deserve our pity.
As I conclude this week, I personally would
like to see Yakubu paraded by the EFCC reside on nationwide Television. He should be made to
inform us the identities of all those that gave him the gifts and what favours he
granted them to be so rewarded. However most significantly, he should apologise for his mistaken behaviour
by prostrating to tens of millions of over 180 million Nigerians for his betrayal of
our belief. Generations to return must see the humiliation of rogue
leaders like him who pretend to serve the nation as professionals in authorities however are nothing however excessive-profile robbers in designer clothes.
Maybe humiliation will disgrace folks like him to repentance and dissuade others from looting public funds
in future. Grovelling earlier than Nigerians, for me, is somewhat humiliation to provide a man who gave no rattling concerning the nation or its future.
After that, he can then be made to face the complete wrath of the legislation.
Lastly, past the dollar showcase which the EFCC has handled
the nation to, Nigerians, who haven’t stopped speaking concerning the recovered
cash on radio or sharing it on social media platforms, are keenly watching and ready to see the clear proof of the utilization of
recovered looted funds by this administration in seen infrastructural improvement evenly
unfold throughout the nation. The federal government should not fail on this regard.
That’s one thing it shouldn’t dare.
After his first successful exhibition at Omenka gallery in 2014,
veteran artist cum art teacher, Adeola Balogun, last
Saturday drew the creme de la creme in the art circle to the same gallery for another solo tagged Bubbles of Emotions, an exhibition of recent work.
Among those who attended were Prince Yemisi Shyllon, Prof Bruce
Onobrakpeya, Mr Kolade Osinowo, Prof Layiwola, etc. The exhibition opened on June 17 and
will run till July 1, 2017.
For many of the art patrons/collectors who have been following
the artist for years, the exhibition was another plus
to the artist who is gradually becoming a master in his field.
Working in two broad representational styles; a calm realism
and a more expressive abstract style, Balogun belongs to an exceptional
generation of artists distinguished for embracing unconventional media
and techniques, as well as their interrogation of the larger society.
In Bubbles of Emotions, Balogun presents a careful selection of 36 works predominantly sculpted in steel and incorporating mechanical parts, a departure from his preferred medium of Through
the body of works, Balogun, who is known for his big sculptural
pieces that adorn many schools and public spaces in Nigeria, takes
a holistic look at the state of the nation’s economy, looking at the
past when things were relatively well, and now that things have fallen apart.
Here, pigmented globular steel forms, similar to soapy bubbles and reflective of
their environmental space are applied as metaphors to reflect myriads of
challenges in our human narratives.
Some of the works displayed include Vestiges of the Past, God
Dey Oh, and Elusive Bliss. Here, a lone skeleton sits with
his right arm at akimbo and his face turned upwards. He seems to be reflecting on his indefinite problems born out of the current state of the Nigerian economy.
Others include, Our Earth just a dot; Like attracts like; Precarious
Speaking about the works, Dapo Adeniyi, publisher of Position magazine said, “Balogun delves into the streams of social satire infusing amusement, which is common to the bite of social sarcasm even as the cartoonist of the newspaper does.”
Born in 1966 in Ogun State, Balogun holds an MFA from the University of
Benin. He has been honoured severally with the award for Best Sculpture and Life Drawing Student, Yaba College of
Technology (1993/94) and the award for Visual Experimentalist of the Decade, by the School of Art, Design and Printing Technology,
Yaba College of Technology (2011).
