“Dieziani Allison-Madueke Called Me Over 20 Times In Quest to Become Minister For Petroleum,” Claims Henry Okah in Affidavit

Diezani Allison-Madueke
By SaharaReporters, New York

In an affidavit to be filed in a South African court, detained Mr. Henry Okah claims that in just the first few days of April 2010, after Mr. Goodluck Jonathan became Acting President of Nigeria, one Mrs. Diezani Allison-Madueke called him over 20 times for help to become Petroleum Minister. 

 

In her calls, Ms. Madueke explained that she “was competing for the post of the Minister of Petroleum with the now Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr, Odein Ajumogobia,” and asked for assistance “to tip the scale in her favor.”

 

In the 42-page affidavit, Mr. Okah claims Mrs. Madueke specifically asked him to speak to President Jonathan and “put a good word for her,” furnishing him with up to date information on the president’s availability via calls and text messages.  Mr. Okah then spoke to President Jonathan in the early hours of April 5, 2010, he says in the affidavit, following which Mrs. Madueke later called to thank him for his contribution in influencing her appointment as Minister for Petroleum.

 

Okah says in the affidavit that he reluctantly accepted to speak to Ms. Madueke at the prompting of now presidential adviser, Mr. Oronto Douglas, who, he said, called him on April 4, 2010, saying that Ms. Diezani Allison-Madueke was desperate to speak to him.  Mr. Douglas underlined Mrs. Madueke’s need of Okah’s assistance in persuading President Jonathan to appoint her Minister for Petroleum.

 

In March of 2010, Mr. Jonathan had sent Douglas to meet Okah in South Africa, according to the affidavit.  During their meeting, which took place between March 31 and April 1, Mr. Douglas informed Okah that the Northern region of Nigeria was doing everything to prevent Jonathan from being the president. 

 

Mr. Okah has been in a South African Prison since October 2, 2010. He is charged under the Terrorist Act’s Protection of Constitutional Democracy against Terrorist and Related Act, Act 33 of 2004. He has been denied bail by various courts in South Africa.

 

Okah was linked with the 2010 Independence Day bombing of the Eagle Square in Abuja.  Okah is facing charges that Chima Orlu, who allegedly supervised the operation, acted under his instructions.  Prosecutors allege that he was in communication via phone and SMS with Mr. Orlu and another co-perpetrator, Ben Jessy Ebere.

 

In Mr. Okah’s new affidavit, he affirms that on the day of the bombing, he received a call from Mr. Moses Jituboh, the Head of Personal Security to President Jonathan, who asked him to continue to cooperate with the President. As Mr. Okah asserted in 2010, following the bombing, Mr. Jituboh also asked him to shift the blame of the bombing to radical elements in the North.

 

Following the emergence of new facts, Mr. Okah is reapplying for bail. In his response to new information in his police docket that contains evidential material that will be used in his trial.  Okah is facing trial at South Gauteng High Court that is estimated to last over 18 months.

 

He is pleading with the court to grant him bail because the case against him is weak and the state cannot provide evidential material to support their case.

 

The case will begin on October 1, 2012 by which time he would have spent 2 years in jail. The State has lined up over 50 witnesses from Nigeria to appear in court in South Africa. Okah also plans to call over 100 witnesses in his defense.

Deri also add Imoke of Cross river state

You will continue to hate those who choose to pick their significant others from the South-east.Maybe you dont know about Mrs Obioma Imoke
All your politics is based on hate and division........... maybe you dont really know that there is a very spiritual dimension very strong underpinning human behaviour strong in national life as its in individual life. No gain comes from politics of hate. God does not lie.

Also more worry development for those of you who of care where someone's spouse is coming from or those so bothered is that this is only the beginning.

Who is South South? What 'bout the slaves from parts of 9ja

Is there truly one from South South who could claim ownership of the oil to the excluasion of other nigerians?
This was a debate amongst several nigerians ..........in one corner in london ...just a corner but very exciting nigerians with almost all the tribes represented.

It was pointed out by some sources that most were sons and daughters of slaves brought from different parts of nigeria who but for the end of slave trade would have been shipped off. Also it was added a bit that explained the english names.

The north have every right not to be made to feel as if any of their expectations on the oil revenue is a stupid one ... in fact no Nigeria
But of course here we are talking about black people

Deri do census ibo gene in most of your prominent families

Deri I have no doubt you have ibo blood somewhere in you....ever since the start of the civil war even young kids of ibo origin were fished out of under their beds to be killed even in Ikoyi lagos during which time some began to deny their ibo connections mostly some from delta and rivers, understandably for their lives,it has entered the gene of some of you such denials. How long ago did some in River state change some of their village names, removing every ibo connections?
Yet some amongst seek the hands of the ibo girl for marriage inspite of your hates.
I am really sorry for you because you would have them to contend with throughout your life even if you succeed with Republic of Niger delta. The ibo blood is in your prominent families expecially of the Mbaise variety do your research.

THE LOST BROTHERHOOD

Kenya recently discovered oil,an African nation also. But unlyke the Niger Delter ppl, the Kenyans are not only willing to share their oil within Kenya but with the whole of east Africa. Come on... Do you ppl really think that oil is all that is keeping us together? I CRY FOR MY COUNTRY.

Very intelligent comment

Very intelligent comment there, ASS WIPE!

DONT FORGET THAT HENRY WORKS FOR THE NORTHERN ELITE

Henry Okah has since reneged from the objectives set out by MEND,he has since shifted his loyalty to the northern elite in a mad bid to pull down his kinsman after disagreements regarding the suspension of violence in the MEND struggle.
Most Nigerians dont understand the dynamics of this whole affair,Henry is being controlled by the north,he has changed his loyalty since his brother failed to get him freedom.Everything coming from him at the moment is trash designed to put President Jonathan on the spot before Nigerians.I am suprised that most commenters are totally lost and underinformed about the situation(too much NTA news).

who them?

Okar is more than a president, except because of Jona Daziani but Henry must be freed from Babylon systen-cell to conclude South/south struggle for power via the nation Chimp who has always been the cause of victor & vanquish of Nigeria Civil war to no avail nor meaningful purpose as we can see what they made Nigeria become in the hand of Boko Boys they PDP are all loyal to Rioyer for in all the days of their nothing lives.
Behold, Okar live!
or bye Nigeria with goodluck of pdp no luck, and boko misery of Africa-Nigeria will rest with ikemba that jonathan impersonated to crown himself president...

Lagosboy, Lagos has creeks,

Lagosboy, Lagos has creeks, you are a creekboy.I am from the S-S and proud to be one because I feel superior to idiots like you - why not relocate to the north and give them your apologies in peron? They will make mince meat of you. Goodluck!

Henry Okah is a desparate and

Henry Okah is a desparate and drowning man and will say anything. I have lived in Johannesburg for about a decade, and not many of us knew that a Nigerian of the "calibre" that is able to appoint ministers by talking to the presdent was in town. Why are these stories coming out now, to show that Jonathan is connected to terrorists becuase of what Aziza said? If Mrs Maduekwe is corrupt, lets push for the evidence, these house wife gossips have no credibility. As a woman, I really hate corrupt females who are in positions of power, so have no sympathy for Diziani if she is guilty. But SR no reasonable person will believe a story coming from Mr. Criminal Okah, we have followed the lies he has been telling in the Johannesburg High Court to prove that he was being framed by Jonathan who is a friend of President Zuma. If he was so close to GEJ, when did they fall out and over what? It was the Yaradua's govenrment that freed him when he was convincted of arms/gun running in Angola.

Caution

Discussion forum right, who innovated dis site & where are u all gettin ur stories from? misinforming dear Nigerians & causin more confusion on d minds of people. How could u b so daft 2 believe every thing u read on press, or on any site, a day will come when we shall all know the truth, in ds world or hereafter.

Aha , by their seeds yea

Aha , by their seeds yea shall know them . Let's keep blaming the North and Islam . The North ruled Nigeria for many years , but developed the South the most . The little done in the North is today being destroyed by BH . How stupid and illogical !. The Northern Leaders have been begging the FG to expose or Name the sponsors of BH . Now we know the Head of MEND and BH is actually the C in C , as exposed by former GOC , CDS and MEND member , now NSA , Azazi . Okah is now adding to the exposure of the cult . Is it any wonder , the President was quick to defend MEND on the October bombing ? . Deri , the mouth piece of MEND/BH couldn't say much about this article .

Is it not possible she becmae

Is it not possible she becmae the babe after she was appointed. Is possible Jona did not know her till he was pressured to appoint her and for that Jona wants her to keep robbing his tommy.

Is Diezani not Jonathan's sqeeze?

Sahara reporter...eeeee! All this time you have been telling us how Diezani is Jonathan's girl friend; so why would she need Okah to talk to her chummy for a job. Now I caught you. Get your act together bros

Okah a terrorist worst than Buhari&boko haram.

There is an Indian Belief that everyone is in a house of four rooms: A physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, again as it affects President Jonathan and his Ijaw brothers. But unless we go into every room each day, which includes that of Balewa, Gowon, Obj, Shagari, Buhari, Abacha, IBB, Shonekon, OBJ, & Yara Adua even if only to keep it aired for one second, we may never be complete. We will continue to look at the GEJ as the worst since our freedom on a platter of gold from the brits. Let us all relax over a bottle of well water and say enough is enough! What is lacking in us is the courage to look truth in the face and say, we dont want the polluted and corrupt oil resouces of the Iboris and Alams no more. Oil was discovered in Libya in 1957 same time with 9ja. But all we do after stealing over 55 trillion frm the SS, is to blame GEJ&Deri for our 60 yrs old miscarriages and goliaths troubling in our lives.

@ JAYDON, I forgot to add Ibori and Odili

“Dieziani Allison-Madueke Called Me Over 20 Times In Quest to Be

So Henry Okah and his terrorist gang work for GEJ & Co. Who is the leader of Boko Haram and who & who do they work for in the North? Wonders will never end; Nigeria we hail thee!

re-Okah's affidavit

With this revelation,it is apparent that this govt is in tandem with terrorist groups!Where are these politicians leading us to?Isn't it time to free our country from thrir grip before we all get consumed by their inordinate ambitions and greed.

LOL Deri and his limited intelligence No wonder

The reason why ijaw dont like certain people is because they are married outside of their ethnic ijaw (according to Deri) ........... with an intelligence like this little wonder Nigeria cant move forward.
Deri, when he writes, make no mistake about it represents the heart and emotions of his ijaw people. Read his articles and see how myopic how limited an intelligence and imagine when such are at the realm of governance.
God help Nigeria for honest nigerians honest huasas honest yorubas honest ibos honest annangs & ibbibios honest Binis honest ijaws etc etc are being sidelineed in our nigeria

If you dont know I will teach you Dozieani Madueke

No matter how Ijaw people call her name, what Christ calls her is Dozieani Madueke. It's the reason she was made the minister of Petroleum which is natural resources. Dozie ani means repear the earth for Nigerians. First she was made the minister of works to repair the broken land. The Broken land is the heart of Nigerians broken by their brethren who enslaved them with political and religious slavery. Biko Mom Dozie ani for you and I to be able to see our next generation, it's word of wisdom take it or leave it. Biafra army instructor in then Nwafor Orizu training camp Nnewi says: Listen to me and hear what am saying to you,if not when you go to war front Hause soldier will teach you.When Hause soldier teaches you is dead.

TO HELL WITH ALL THE BASHERS OF THE NORTH!

All of you that find joy in bashing the North coz GEJ and his people are feeding you fat with lies and stupid concoctions, your conscience should be pricking you. and if you fail to APOLOGISE for the unwarranted insults you heaved on us pursuant to lies, you shall all perish in HELL and your generations shall not know PEACE as long as you live!I am a northern Christian and know the golf between me and my Muslims brothers coz of GEJ. MAY GOD PUNISH HIM AND ALL UNA HIS SYMPERTISERS

Okah

i am sure learned people will just be laughing at this affidavit.the unlearned will continue to dissipitate their energy on it.imagine,Sahara said "new fact emerged".there words to describe sahara but i wont use such words in the media

BEORE YOU CRUSIFY THE NORTH

God shall deliver the north from the jaws of GEJ and his kinsmen. It’s unfortunate that the other regions are singing the idiotic songs along, not knowing that they have set out to destroy us. Imagine the outrage then when the bomb exploded in Oct 1. Everybody thought it was the north simply because GEJ said it. May God deliver us from these thugs in ARO-ROCK!

na wah for naija

it is obvious what our leaders can do in order to gain entrance into the corridors of power and stay there.......quite dissapointing for a country that is yet to gain its grounds in this changing economic world of ours

MADAME MINISTER CLOWN AND GHETTO LOOKING ATTIRE

IT IS HARD TO READ THE ARTICLE BECAUSE THIS PICTURE IS DISTRACTING. HER OUTFIT IS SO HIDEOUS THAT IT STRAINS THE EYES. DOES SHE REALLY HAVE TO WEAR ALL THAT UGLY, BUSY, COLOR CLASHING HAT AND CLOTHES AND RIDICULOUS JEWELRY? IT IS DOWN RIGHT UGLY AND WAY OVER THE TOP. SHE CANNOT BUY CLASS EVEN WHEN IT IS OBVIOUS THAT SHE IS TRYING SO HARD TO BELONG . MONEY CANNOT BUY CLASS .EEEWWWWWWWWW

IT'S THEIR TRADEMARK, USELESS CREEKS PEOPLE!

All their politics is to sponsor cultists and militants to destabilize the country. That’s their trademark. And they think what they used the ND money to do during UMYA’s time is what the north could be doing with BH, they were quick to form a theory. Now their secret is blown open. We will see how they will get out of this time. At least they were able to suppress the story then with the active connivance of the media but this one, the name of the culprit is stated. He is right inside Aso Rock. GEJ sure know about it. That is his trademark! Do stupid things and blame it on the other person/party. May God judge them all appropriately

JONATHAN IS THE MAIN SPONSOR OF BOKO HARAM!

Jonathan has a mission to destabilize this country. He is acting out a script. And while he is doing that, the gullible Nigerians are playing along. As for me, I have never ever believed that it is the northern elites that are behind BH. I don’t dwell under stupid illusions that are at best being peddled by the govt. I’m not a fool to buy into the divisionist approaches and statements of GEJ and his kinsmen. El-rufai said it yesterday at Ibadan that the GEJ’s is only looking for a scapegoat where there is none. Is it not all clear now? If GEJ could mastermind the OCT 1 bombing, are you telling me that he wouldn’t be the one behind the BH too? Why is it that the govt and its cronies (including the NSA) are the one singing the sponsors, sponsors chorus? May this perdition of a President pass us by quickly. Oh lord, let’s this man just go anyhow and leave our country alone!

GOD WILL PUNISH ALL OF THOSE THAT HAVE BROUGHT US THUS FAR!

ALL THOSE THAT ARE GANGING AGAINST THE NORTH, TARNISHING THE NORTH OF THE NORTH ON THE ALTER OF POLITICS AND REGIONAL TERRORISM MAY GOD DEAL WITH THEM. WE KNEW THAT WAS WHY WE DIDN’T WANT THESE RATS THAT HAVE PUT THE COUNTRY ON FIRE, SETTING US AGAINST OUR GOOD BROTHERS FROM THE SOUTH. MAY GOD’S PUNISHMENT BE VISITED ON THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES SOON SOON!

GEJ and Militants romance

Henry Okah a militant recommended a militant Minister to GEJ for appointment. Haba this goes to show that the romance between GEJ and the militants (whether Niger Delta Militants of Boko haram Militants) has been on for a very long time. No wonder Edwin Clark another senior militant has become the guardian, the defender and the political father of GEJ.

It is only in Nigeria that dissidents who took up arms against their country are glorified and even allowed to make recommendation for appointments into very high offices. Little wonder we presently have a clueless government and a clueless president.

SAHARA REPORTERS - Henry Okah's PR Firm

Yeah right, Angel Gabriel and the 12th disciples called Henry Okah asking him to put in the good words for them with God.

Note to SR, make sure Henry Okah pays you by cash O! B'cos Henry is going bye bye for a very long time.
