Declaring President Jonathan’s Assets By Pius Adesanmi

Not even the most vociferous supporters of President Jonathan, for whom any criticism of their man is haram, have been able to find a way to spin the embarrassing question of his failure to declare his assets in accordance with a clear, unambiguous provision of the Constitution he swore to respect and defend. The strategy of presidential aides in Aso Rock, Jonathan’s self-appointed social media wailers, and sundry kool-Aid drinkers is simple.

They either avoid the subject entirely, hoping that “irritants” like Sahara Reporters and Premium Times would stop talking about it, or dredge up red herrings and foolish, constipated excuses and rationalizations, while hounding and abusing those insisting that transformation begins only when you respect the Constitution and your office. As usual, they underestimate our determination to keep this subject alive in the public sphere.

Two people cannot be suckers in the social exchange of lies. If an unsuspecting, innocent victim has no way of knowing that he has been lied to, the author of the lie knows that he has told a lie. Thus, we know that President Jonathan, his palace aides, and in-too-deep social media supporters are not unaware of the lies they are generating over this issue of asset declaration. We know that they know that every second President Jonathan spends in office without declaring his assets makes him an illegal president; a Disrespecter-in-Chief of the Constitution and the Office of the President of Nigeria. That is why Nigerians must continue to ignore the silly exhortations of government’s mouthpieces to respect an office that the incumbent dishonors and disrespects.

We know that they know why President Jonathan cannot possibly declare his assets. It is a tricky situation for the President. Sometimes I genuinely feel for him. Even without adding whatever his share of the $1.1 billion Malabu Oil loot may turn out to be when, eventually and certainly, the fowl’s rump is placed at the mercy of the evening breeze, it is obvious that the president has stolen much more than he will ever be able to satisfactorily explain to the Nigerian people with a straight face.

You need not look beyond the acquisitive culture of his political ilk and the empire of billion and trillion-naira corruption he now supervises to understand why he cannot possibly declare his assets. Why satisfy that constitutional provision and expose the size of his acquisition and the growth of same as he progressed from Deputy Governor to President when he knows that the National Assembly is way too irresponsible and compromised to ever make him comply with a Constitutional provision? Sam Nda-Isaiah implied recently that this mega-looting is going on in broad daylight within the vicinity of the President’s office and he is doing nothing about it because the guilty are his aides, cronies, and political benefactors. I am not as generous as Mr. Nda-Isaiah. I believe that the President’s hands are elbow-deep in the cookie jar.
Interestingly, the real reason President Jonathan is getting away with ruling Nigeria while spitting on the face of the Constitution has to do with another asset he has declared and will continue to declare brazenly. Suffice it to say that the President has no monopoly over this particular kind of asset. Every member of Nigeria’s political élite holds substantial shares and stakes in this particular asset. I am talking about a followership largely deprived of civic sentience. This sort of followership is President Jonathan’s greatest asset. It is the one asset he is not afraid to declare. It is the one asset he vigorously cultivates and addresses his speeches to.

It is perhaps now cliché to declare that the trouble with Nigeria is equally about leadership and followership. In fact, certain social critics and commentators have moved beyond wasting intellection on the failures of leadership and now focus mostly on how a cowed and disempowered citizenry can be awakened to the patriotic responsibility of taking Nigeria back from the buccaneers currently running and ruining our lives.
However, such analyses are not always backed by an understanding of the social trajectory of this followership. Some commentators have identified mass poverty and the ravages of prosperity Pentecostalism as the culprits responsible for the production of a sedated followership that either no longer knows how to hold office holders accountable or even displays symptoms of Stockholm’s Syndrome by preening the same contemptible leaders who loot their today and rape their tomorrow.

The task now is to understand that this sedated and uncritical followership is a manufactured product. It is the product of a remarkable process of social production engineered by the leadership of Nigeria. Poverty and Pentecostalism are nothing but incidental and welcome instruments in a process of social engineering consciously settled upon and pursued with vision and vigour by Nigeria’s political class. Manufacturing a followership that would evolve to identify with the rapist, rationalize rape or and explain it away is a critical pre-condition for running Nigeria the way it has been run at least since the 1980s.

In essence, those who complain that our educational institutions have been left to rot by an élite ever ready to send its children to Euro-America – and, sadly, Ghana – to acquire the quality education they deny Nigerians at home make a mistake by thinking in the intransitive mode. What happened to education in Nigeria was a transitive process. There is a difference between “Ken Saro Wiwa was killed” (intransitive) and “Abacha killed Ken Saro-Wiwa” (transitive). In the second sentence, there is a subject performing the action, “to kill” on an object. There is responsibility: Abacha. There is a victim: Ken Saro Wiwa. The same process applies to the fate of education in Nigeria. Our primary schools, secondary schools, and Universities were not left to rot. Such intransivity misses the ideological deliberateness at work. President Jonathan and his predecessor destroyed ou Universities and other educational institutions.

This purposed, transitive assault on education has only one target: civics. Our educational institutions per se are not the target of Nigeria’s depraved rulers. The direct target is civics, that dangerous area of education and the humanities which produces sentient citizens capable of asking critical questions and acting. When you plan to turn the largest political union of black people on the face of the earth into the most embarrassing open sore of the black race; when you plan to turn Africa’s most populous country into a continental example of how not to run a country; when you plan to loot on such a scale as to make Farida Waziri, your own appointed anti-corruption czar, declare in exasperation that the scale of looting by Nigeria’s political leaders is a “symptom of mental illness”; when you are planning to loot on that uninterrupted scale for three generations since the 1980s, the first thing you need to do is manufacture a followership incapable of critically challenging you or one that would applaud and hail your actions, especially if there is the occasional trickle down from the table of the bacchanals you organize at their expense.

The diseducation – what is going on is neither miseducation nor under-education – of the Nigerian citizen, especially the generation which came of age in the 1980s and 1990s, is purposed. It is deliberate in the sense that there is a political élite which gains directly and massively from a national condition of civic illiteracy. This explains why nothing has worked to revamp education in Nigeria. All the policies you hear from official spokespersons of successive administrations in the education sector are mere lip service. Nigeria’s élite would do only just enough to give UNESCO, UNICEF, and other relevant UN agencies the impression that they are doing something. It is really not in their interest to develop education.

What those of us who are critical stakeholders in project Nigeria – I am using stakeholders in the genuine sense; I do not refer here to the oafs in our political leadership who call themselves stakeholders – must understand is that the activism and critical intellection we deploy in the bid to actualize a process of national renaissance will continue to fail so long as the most critical segments of the population are being deliberately diseducated by those who fear civics.

This, really, is a double bind for we also cannot expect those who consider a followership without civic education an asset to improve the standards of education in the country. Why should you do that? Why would you be interested in producing citizens capable of rejecting a President who rules them in violation of the Constitution? Why would you invest in the production of citizens capable of demanding answers about your role in the $1.1 billion Malabu oil deal? On the contrary, your energies and resources would be geared at manufacturing a followership programmed to accept these things or rationalize them – a sort of Reno Omokri/Reuben Abati nirvana.

Many things happen in Nigeria that can only be explained by the fact that we have produced three generations of citizens and starved them of civics. How do you explain the insolence of David Mark’s last medical safari to Israel and his airport reception by a bunch of idle charlatans who call themselves Ministers and Senators? How do you explain the treatment to which Nigerians are subjected every time Patience Jonathan, a woman not recognized by the Constitution, comes to town? How do you explain the figures we have been hearing in the conglomeration of scams that Nigeria has become? How do you explain that reaction to such successive outrage hardly ever goes beyond the restricted circuitries of activists, intellectuals, and the new generation of undaunted social media warriors for Nigeria’s cause?

The enemy understands that there is a bigger mass that we cannot reach because he has diseducated them beyond what we could ever hope to reach and conscientize. This sort of followership is the asset that President Jonathan declares every day. They are his people. They make his day. And you know that Bukola Saraki also recently declared that kind of asset by claiming that the idle Kwarans who danced their way to Lagos to support him were not a rented crowd. They went there of their own volition. He is right. Those who danced to Lagos to support a man who stole from them come from the kind of followership that the Saraki dynasty has manufactured from one generation to the other in Ilorin. They do not have to rent a crowd.

They already did their homework by killing civics in Kwara state.

It needs repeating: we cannot rely on the oppressor to educate our people. In fact what, he will do is trivialize education by mushrooming Federal and State Universities, always pulling the rabbit of new Universities out of his fedora before thinking of how to fund them while allowing existing ones to rot. That is his way of continuing the purposed devaluation of education – it did not start with him. He is just continuing a legacy – in order to sustain the assault on civics.

If we cannot look up to the Nigerian educational system as a partner in the struggle for national rebirth – those who fund it will never allow this – what is to be done? Methinks that Nigerian activists and intellectuals need to start thinking extremely seriously about the option of public pedagogy. We have to look beyond formal institutions to instruct and educate our people. We have to take civics to the streets, to social media, to Molue buses, to paraga joints. We have to meet Nigerians where they are. This would involve painstaking planning and networking. It would require dedicated intellects willing to brainstorm and strategize. Once we agree that public pedagogy is an option we need to consider very seriously, conceptualization and planning could follow. In the end, every citizen we gain who no longer identifies with his own oppressor, even if the oppressor is his ethnic kinsman - is one giant step for Nigeria. With public pedagogy and instruction, we can begin to undo the psychological injury that the oppressor has done to our Stockholm Syndromed compatriots and begin the process of taking Nigeria back one mind at a time.

Prof,
Nigeria a place I have grown to know not to belong to my father, or my fathers’ father but certain categories of individual-; Fulanis, Politicians/ruling class and others. I, like most of us belong to the category of others. This group called others cannot do anything about the state of this nation because it doesn’t belong to us. If the other major groups see anything or failed to declare what they have seen, if they act stupidly or fail to act rightly, if they experiment wrongly or inadequately, ...... it doesn’t matter, so far not a hair on their head is affected. I look forward to a country where people will no longer be judged by the tribe and political class. The Nigeria of my dreams where I will be judged based on the content of my character, problems I am able to solve and my ability to add values.

DISHUMANIZATION

Wonderful piece ore.This whole thing about diseducating us is also a master plan put in place to retain powerha and wealth within a minority.its a way of making sure only their generations remain in control of power and the economy.new apppointments and you keep hearing of those same names only this time its their children or grandchildren.this is just because the children of the middle or lower class have not been given that opportunity to have a good degrees that most employers demand.But even worse than diseducation is a worse effort of dishumanizing us.we are gradually losing it as a country.my smaller dog usually protests each time d bigger one pokes his mouth into her dish.but we sit back and watch our own dishes being shared while we get the crumbs and often times nothing.I think its high time we said no to this dishumanization which I think is d bedrock of diseducation and so many ills we live with as Nigerians.

A master piece

Prof. Am not suprise this is coming from your desk 'cos you shows us time without nr. That you are among the progressive

This diseducation has been going on for a very long time but we don't notice it,
Obasanjo and his team among the architect of the plan, they know if equal opportunities were giving to everybody they might not find it easy in nearest future. Then they take away scholarship programs even though majority of them benefited in the past.

Then, the second coming of Obasanjo is a disaster to our education, political and judiciary department.

Solution :- let the good people of Nigeria think and seat together to reclaim the country from Obasanjos and babagindas..

WHICH WAY BAKARE, SNG AND TINUBU NOW!

The Chairman of the Adhoc committee in the House of Representatives that probed the subsidy regime, Farouk Lawan, is trying desperately to clear his already tarnished reputation sequel to the alleged N3 Billion bribery scandal.Lawan was alleged to have received the whooping sum from Zenon Oil boss, Femi Otedola.Pointblanknews.com learnt that following the uproar the allegation generated, Lawan, in a bid to come clean, told his colleagues he took the cash to use as evidence against Otedola. Shortly before the scandal, Otedola’s had embarked on a subtle media blitz claiming Zenon Oil had been cleared by the Lawan committee.The original plan was for Zenon Oil to make available $3 million for committee members to ensure the oil firm was removed from those indicted for subsidy fraud, before the report was released

A CRIMMINAL ACT BY OBORO !?

Is it not a crimminality for a Nigerian Ambassador to fraudulently obtained the ordinary passport of his host country to enable his grandson become a citizen of that country and Nigeria as a country keeps quiet only for the leadership of Foreign Affairs Ministry to recommend such an Ambassador for reappointment to same country?

Was Ambassador Oboro sent to protect the image of Nigeria in Venezuela or to commit crime ?

What Chief Oboro has done is executive crimminality that STAINS the image of Nigeria.He should be brought back home with minimum delay to face the rule of law.It is a national shame that the leadership of the Ministry identifies with a crimminal who sees nothing wrong in what he has done ! l will not be surprised,the leadership in the Ministry will support him to point accussing fingers to wrong direction.

Why can't President Jonathan declare his assets accurate

Declaring of assests by politician is the best way to fight corruption in Nigeria society - before taking Office and out. How much did he or she own before or after holding office. None declaring of assests accurate is corruption.

''I am a bit confused, if frauds are not appropriate for the public, why frauds are appropriate for the politicans?'' - Comment from a book: CIVILISED by Ambrose Onyekwere.

No need moaning on website, Nigeria leaders are hopelessly corrupt, action for their declaring of assests is need for better Nigeria.

FURTHER details emerged at the weekend on the process through which the (SSS) burst the $3 million bribery scandal currently ravaging the House of Representatives adhoc committee which probed the fuel subsidy regime. Investigations by Sunday Tribune confirmed that the Service had been on the trail of all parties involved in the oil subsidy probe from the inception of the probe embarked on by the Farouk Lawan-led committee.The agency was said to have been alerted by persistent allegations of bribe taking and demand for bribes made against key members of the probe committee.For instance, it was learnt that some oil marketers were said to have raised the alarm that they were scandalised in the report because they refused to meet some officials of the adhoc committee for closed-door discussions .Sources, however, said the Service was later to approach an oil magnate who was said to have also been asked to pay a certain amount as bribe by some persons fronting for the committee.

Paragraph 3, Part I of the Third Schedule to the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended, provides that the Code of Conduct Bureau shall have power to: (a) receive declarations by public officers made under paragraph 12 of Part I of the Fifth Schedule to this Constitution; (b) examine the declarations in accordance with the requirements of the Code of Conduct or any law; (c) retain custody of such declarations and make them available for inspection by any citizen of Nigeria on such terms and conditions as the National Assembly may prescribe.

Dear Prof.,
There was an uncontrollable muttering of a wow after reading your article. It was one of those pieces painstakingly dug out of the subconscious recesses of a truly patriotic heart.

The diseducation of the masses was impeccably diagnosed by you. In fact I agree wholeheartedly with everything you said but I have to add a piece of info which u might not have or even cannot have becos it is like a bombshell.

Keeping in mind that I dropped one several weeks ago which might make u doubt the quality of my contribution, but I implore u to keep an open mind befitting of a man of letters, and consider what u are able to receive from it and only keep note of what may sound larger than life.

2) See, change, Nigeria will

2)
See, change, Nigeria will change. Rule of law will prevail. But I´m not telling you it will become America or the UK or like any western country terming wastefulness civilization. As a matter of certainty A leader will arise that would have ears for true wisdom.

Men of your generation will play a major role. But most of them are still fast bound in the shackles of ego. Never to worry the ones that would have say will be purged be4 then.

Now concerning the info that you might not have. President Jonathan might be all that people call him. But to my own surprise and to the chagrin of many of his critics: He has not been judged! The reason being that HE SHEDS TEARS IN HIS BEDROOM.

3) I know how that sounds and

3)
I know how that sounds and I know what to expect after this comment. However it does not mean all is peace for him.

He will be severely JUDGED after he decided to run for a second term. Up till now his (personal) decision has not been made known to anyone. His Aides are His worse Enemies. They will push him HARD to RUN. And they will disappear when his trouble starts.

As for David Mark, keep on watching him closely. He is trying to repent. If he genuinely does forgiveness is never strictly withheld from anyone. But I say it loud that it is so hard to remove what is bringing the curse on them. The salaries and the bribes are what is cursing the senators. It is the blood on their hands.

.... Nigerians have been snared

Even nearly 720000 fans follow the useless shoeless man about on facebook.

Nigerians, what a people!

Deri do you fancy a lovely

Deri do you fancy a lovely cup of tea in Damaturu on 20/6/2012. At 3pm. You did not honour our last invitation. Pls note Pius is correct and he is a superstar. He may not be from one of those big arrogant tribes like Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba or Deltans. But in fact he is from a modest and very perwerful proud town in Kogi. So Deri shut up.

@deri, u know PIus cannot

@deri, u know PIus cannot write on boko haram as you often challenge him to do because the rats in BH, will chase him to Canada or have his mother killed in Kogi state. That is why he is doing this PRO job for Buhari . Murtala Mohamed declared his assets. Did Buhari declare his also? Jonathan has already declared his assets. What ppl like PIus want is public declaration @ the national stadium

Jonathan cannot declare his assets at every car park in kogi sta

How corrupt was tai solarin when Buhari dumped him into jail and allowed the ex CBN governor to go free while late fela was put into his gulag? It was not corruption that forced Buhari to free Mohamed dantata who handed over to him by the Yankees. Was babatope a governor when Buhari dumped him in jail..the siemen and halliburton scandal broke under the nose of ribadu while obj was presido.. Where is the result.. We have had more PDP governors tried for corruption under Jonathan than the previous government..the president must be respected..governance is not operated like jankara market.where every Tom dick and Harry goes to haggle..information on the presidents asset declaration can only be gotten through an act of parliament..that is what the law says..Gej cannot be declaring his assets at every motor park in kogi state..

Pius, the way to go is

Pius, the way to go is organise mass forums where the citizenry are made deeply aware of the exploitation equation by the political usurpers who have taken over our polity and taking advantage of their ignorance and docility.
It's time for action to wrestle the country from the exploiters! Irrespective of their political ideologies.

Very thought provoking

Very thought provoking article from Pius. I would however suggest that we do not waste time and energy trying to figure out why Jonathan is withholding his asset declaration. It's pure and simple - most likely it's embarrassing and indefensible! To the likes of Deri - Jonathan threw the first challenge by declaring he would fight corruption, therefore the need for him to step far above reproach. Drawing analogies with other past leaders Buhari, Tinubu, IBB etc is begging the question. If your principal has nothing to hide, why not differentiate himself from the others that the shoeless Otueke man is far better than his predecessors, whilst carving his name in the sands of time?

Please check your facts.

Please get some education by reading before writing. George Bush was the governor of the state of Texas (a state almost the size of Nigeria). And his father was a CIA director and Vice-President. You can easily google this info. For God sake stop embarrassing our great country Nigeria. How can someone swear to uphold a constitution of Nigeria and refuse to declare his assets as the constitution dictates.

PUBLIC PEDAGOGY IS THE ANSWER

Pius you are absolutely right on the pedagogy project and I cannot but agree with you.Count me in and please let the networking start now.The real time for this holistic education is now, when preparation for 2015 election has started.I said it before and I want to say it here that the national orientation office in Abuja that is saddled with the resposibility of enlightened the public about their rights has failed.I am not surprised though as all governments agencies are in the pockets of Nigerian rulers.We have to take the gunlet for the sake of upcoming generations and the unborn.Prof. Ilesanmi my email is bobaseye@hotmail.com and I live in Dublin.I am ready to go for the pedagogy project and am using this medium to call others to join this noble project

DERI D SCUMBAG

See as Deri just dey para. Trying hard to explain the president's utter disregard for constitutional provisions. It seems like people lyk tundemash and 'pope Pius' have gotten to him. Enjoy it while it lasts brother.

A CLOWN ON A PEDESTAL WILL RIDE A THOUSAND MILES

I have been called all sorts on this website because I want to spotlight the citizens in articles rather than the constant cry of leadership problems by most Nigeria educated elite. I guess by Nigerian standards, a clown like this Pius dude qualifies as a "public intellectual..." just like Okey Ndibe's desperate pursuit of cheap publicity. The new fad in Naija is to raise ruckus enough with mindless govt criticism, word-smithing with sleight of hands, & playing mind games on the pages of SR or NVS to gain cheap fame among .0001% of Nigerian population that have yahoo access to the Internet. All these Rankadede clowns do is post titillating lies, rumors and innuendos to entertain small minds like Tundemash and co. Therein lays Naija's dilemma. What a disgusting race of people with such shite mentality!

Dumbo is a thief whose stupidity stops at corruption

No wonder seasoned crooks like Anenih, Clark and all the timid Orontos and Odontos crawled out of their slimy enclaves to urge him to run saying na their time to schop. Fools. They've tied Dumbo with impeachable info so ex-con Alams now lives in Aso Rock, while Diezani runs a mini fiefdom. The junta-made constitution is subject to interpretation by a criminal, criminal justice system. Crooks, everywhere you look! It took national outrage to get rid of the ex-IGP, and the clueless Azazi remains untouchable. Mdm. Waziri nko? They all realized Dumbo is super dumb so they numb his senses with Jack Daniel's ogogoro. But the Utuoke fool who listens to the last adviser has no hiding place, we will keep his tax code violations in lime light no matter how long it lasts! He is a crook and a very corrupt thief who circles himself with thugs like Asari, Tompolo, Folake Lebi and crumb-catchers that come here to rave about distractive nonsense. Unambitious web prawlers. Animals!

@Deri: Leave Abiola, Awo, Gani alone ! is there no SS man worthy

@Deri

Leave out Awo, Abiola, Gani out of your tales by moonlight. Is there no one dead/alive in South South to be used as role models in your misinformation? Awo, MKO and Gani would have had nothing to do with PDP or your Clown Prince of Otuoke if they were alive today. As Pius said, you are a Jonathan assets, a product of mis-education. Your children would curse your memory in future having realised you mortgaged their future for a peanuts. The Abacha, IBB, OBJ and yaradua foot soldier have all faded away and so shall you. You and others who have kept most if the country men in poverty shall die an horrible death. As the corrupt actions of the govt. you support have led to the death of thousands of Nigerians on bad roads, air crash, ill-equiped hospitals and insecurity so shall you and other crumb-catchers meet your untiley death. May this be the lot of your generation unborn ! Ditto for other members of Jonathan's assets(crumb-catchers) on this forum !

Assets Declaration

It always amase me to read about how the rest of the nation will be left in the dark as far as the worth of a seating president. Why is it a big deal for them to come out with such declaration. You would think it should be part of the requirements for the office in the first place. When a big figure is sick in Africa, it is always a futile effort trying to know the actual state of his or her health in an atempt to interceed for such person. I remember when the former presidents was sick, we had to wait for saudi news to know what was going on despite been treated with tax payers money. When Ikemba was sick. it was one news today another the next days. We had to wait for Gov. Obi"s update on his weekly trip to UK. May God deliver us. I dont know if knowing that president Obama $900,000 gross income last year took anything away from him.

pius and SR came out the same day on asset declaration

Pa Rewane from the SS, was assassinated by Abacha while buhari was chopping life with him. Killed because he gave his resources and heart out for 4 restoration of June 12. Today Tinubu is telling the (drunken sailor fisher men from the SS) we never backed abiola when he was alive. How was tinubu and his confused group able to know that naming aso rock after abiola will be acceptable to buhari and the sultan of sokoto? A man from the same geo political zone with GEJ, was murdered in cold blood for using his money to finance June 12. While escapees like tinubu were busy monitoring the movement of Abiola for abacha &IBB. Buhari who said Abacha never stole the nation blind, is the man the yorubas are beatifying for sainthood in ACN. History has already recorded efforts by GEJ to immortalise abiola. Whether cause of politics or boko haram, its left for posterity to judge and not SNG, tinubu, or bakare who never supported Abiola bid for the presidency for one second.
