Okukpe Et Al: The Rise Of The Sons Of Belial

Doyin Okupe
By Rev Ayobanna Ikeanumba Theo.D

Talking about corruption in Nigeria has become like talking about reconstruction of Lagos-Ore expressway, repairing the Port Harcourt – Enugu NNPC damaged pipeline or the politics of Russia vs. Georgia.

However, the awe and horror of the dimension of the ‘new-corruption’ in the country is the emanation of the children of the high and mighty who have broken the records of their fathers to ascend to the utopian heights of ‘who can beat me in this game’.

More laughable is the guerrilla appointment of Dr Doyin Okukpe, the infamous mouthpieces of former Nigerian President Mr Olusegun Obasanjo who only in February 7 of this year, still relishing in the euphoria of his factional appointment as the dwarf ‘’Leader’’ of PDP in Ogun State shot that Mr Obasanjo erred in leading the Ogun PDP. This character of a man was on May 3 posted on YouTube, for reasons unclear to me till today, postulating that Pastor Tunde Bakare (PTB) cannot and shall not critique the management of Nigeria resources.

Still recovering from the Halloween of this man’s appointment, today 2nd August, just few days after receiving his appointment letter as the ‘’attack dog’’ of the Nigeria federal government, he couldn’t wait any longer to take his seat, he took over the job of Okonjo-Iwuala by attempting to educate Nigerians that the nation is and will be broke if it has to appropriate the budget as stipulated in the 2012 Appropriation Bill and that if it insists, it either seeks loan of N1t or collapse the economy. Okukpe has assumed full responsibility of a colossus spokesman for Nigeria. Not taking the liberty to ‘educate’ the people how far the looted $6.8b would go to fix the anticipated deficit pinches me to believe that indeed the first son of Belial is in the loose!
Taking a lead from the biblical Sons of Belial, the sons of the Known in Nigeria, seemingly led by Okukpe, having taken the mantle from their parents are running to finish a race only to be described as utter disregard and pump of pomposity to the beating of chest that nothing will happen. I am frightened and my bones seem to shake as the cloud of 1983 gathers. If you don’t believe me what could you make of a pathetic attitude of the First Family dancing ‘’jankara’’ music in Ojuelegba from the drums of the mad man in Yaba/Oyigbo? Do we talk about the madness of ghost-worker appointment, the Malabu N155b allegation, the great oil subsidy cover-up or the shameless fight over Abuja land by Mrs Jonathan and Mrs Yaradua?

The rumours and incidences of sons of Nigerian families spearheading fraud syndication and manipulation of the wealth of the nation have always been around but have gotten to its threshold in the last weeks as the faces and names of the accused oil subsidy thieves began to emerge in the media. Bamanga Tukur and his son; Ahmed Ali, his wife and son and others; families conniving to reap where they never sowed
The biblical Belial is not far from what our eyes are seeing today in Nigeria. Young men taking lead in the mindless stealing, diversion and destruction of the national wealth and honour is not only irritating but cancerous in the conscience of the remaining good people of Nigeria. I took a brief glance at the resume of Bamanga Tukur in my quest to know why his own son could slip into the gutters of what he is presently and I must say I took very bitter exception in this man son’s case. The young man may be innocent, but to what extent can he be innocent if more than two committees have consistently confirmed that he is a thief. His father would be said to have witnessed and participated in the glorious and failed ages of Nigeria having started in the national service as early as 1959 but now what?

The act is as unthinkable as satanic and deserving of the penalties that are commensurate to it. I may be tempted to say that these lads fit very well in their father’s shoes. Squandering $6.8b is not a joke and jokes are resolved through bitter joke. What Okukpe will say will be interesting to know. The recent comment of

Davis Mark about online media is evident that Okukpe’s services are long overdue, but we are on standby.

Saharareporters, Pointblanknews and others are available. We shall see who blinks first. The die is cast.
There is no way and it’s utterly impossible that this federal rouge regime would go without a deep scratch on its body together with the agents that vamp on the souls of the people of this nation. It has gone beyond sentiment and wishful thinking and to think that this federal government will not implode is a joke because like in 1966, 1976, 1983, 1984 even 1997 the joke is fully ripe and must wither.  

Suddenly their fathers are insisting that their children are men-enough to talk and take care of themselves. History has it that Ahmed Ali left little to be desired as the national chairman of the ruling peoples democratic party (PDP) and Bamanga Tukur may not be far from same, so it won’t come as a surprising-paradox if they made it clear that their hands are clean but that of their sons are dirty. If Mrs Miriam Ali (Ahmed Ali’s wife) could shamelessly accept to bail her alleged rogue son and accomplice from Sierra Leon then the viper has dinned with the rabbit!.

These sons, trained with stolen wealth and continuing in the iniquities of their fathers have come home to roast; the Saraki;s are still fresh in memories (though Bukola Saraki may be in penance when he moved at the floor of the Senate that fuel subsidy be probed). Until the cutlass and axe of revenge is offered these people, it may never be peace for the peaceful.

Theologically, the mind of God is not known (Rom 11: 34) but the will of God is known to man (Rom 8: 27). God’s will is that men should worship him absolutely and that the wicked, witches and men of dark souls should perish in all their manifestations. So, what is the outcry if calls are made that Nigeria economic witches should perish? Who should care how they perish except their concubines and mistresses?

If it’s true Christians in Nigeria are 60% of the population, it should mean that of the 160m people 100m are Christians. My survey says that 1% of Nigerian Christians are Pastors, Reverends or whichever name they choose to be called. That means that 1m Nigerians are mounting the pulpit at one time or the other to preach in churches or other places. Why won’t this One Million rattle this federal government of vampires? The same should be said of the Imams and other Islamic leaders/preachers. When everybody is complaining nobody is complaining.

Out of the blues the duo of Babangida and Obasanjo are raising their voices ahead of the preachers insisting that something should be done before insecurity consumes Nigeria. Ribadu says he needs one week to fish-out the subsidy rogues and many more surprises. It is also proper that the two generals are asked to return their alleged loots before security will improve.

To a great extent I agree with the fellow because the crux of the insecurity roots in social injustice; not in religion or tribe. I can’t understand why and it beats every sense of common gravitational physics that there would be no pipe borne water in Yenogoa, Lokoja or Onitsha with rivers round-about them,. Why must ‘pure water’ sell highest in Yenogoa, Onitsha, Benue and Lokoja than in Awka and Ayangba? Maybe the river-line Governors will have answers.

In the foregoing, it is really prayer-able and desirable that change must happen in Nigeria, but waiting for 2013 or 2015 does not make sense anymore as the earlier the better. It is therefore of little-mind to think that this change has nothing to do with Men of God. Lack of theo-contextual analysis is holding down the steam in the hearts of our people.

Why should one feel dirty if he involves in politics as a Man of God but feels holy even when he is deceiving and manipulating his congregation to offer tithes and offering with the last kobo in their hands? I am repeating again that the Bible in its entirety never prohibits Preachers from being partisan -politically. I reminded my Bible College Professor that so long we live in a social world the social guide (constitution) will always be used to rule the world; so the earlier Nigerian Christians get grasp of this strange reality the better.

Now that Nigeria is amending her constitution, has the 1% sacrificed one Sunday Service to reason with their congregation what this exercise holds for them? Is it not supposed that the so-called CAN, PFN etc gather their flocks and educate them about the exercise?

Murmuring in the cloak room is not permissible in a social jungle. The Christians of conscience must rise and be part of the 5th amendment! Has the 1m educated their people to register and vote or be voted? We all glue to CNN when Republicans claim the US Evangelicals and Democrats run to the Non-Evangelicals and Pagans. Here we are, 100 of 160 million, yet we cannot change a bad guy for a good guy. I remember when the Christians cried ‘bring-him-and-hang-him’ when Buharis was reported to have asked Muslims to vote for a Muslim. Why grumble? The man understood that one solution to Nigeria’s many woes will always be religious amendment and realignment. The diversity is obvious.

Still in theological exegeses, the spiritual anatomy of man says that the heart is the battle field of life; to purify the body and soul and ignore the heart will not bring good in a man. Being ready to rule Nigeria is more than kneeling on the altar to be prayed for by revered Men of God. The anointing of the head with oil will not change the heart until the mind accepts the Spirit of Change. I now speak as a Christian- only the Holy Spirit can change the heart when we yield; kneeling down on the pulpit (kneeling-anointing) can never do it.

So, if the sons of Belial are feeding the ‘Kneeling-Anointed’ how can the sons of Belial be rooted out? I still remember when Mr Jonathan was kneeling at the Redeemed Church Camp and prayed for by the General Overseer and the entire 2m congregants stretching their hands towards him, we thought that indeed ‘’fresh air’’ has come to Nigeria. In the contrary filthy air has overtaken the common man with news of strange appointments in Bayelsa to mammoth fraud in Abuja. In fact records are showing that Nigeria has never had it like this in politically motivated fraud and senseless wastage of life on the bad roads and bombings.

It is an open knowledge that the present Nigeria’s disaster is as seriously inclined with some Nigerian Men-of-Preaching (Pastors, Reverends, Imams, Bishops or any name they may be called) as in the ranting of Dr Doyin Okukpe and confusion of Dr Reuben Abatti. Though I don’t blame Reuben as it is impossible to market rotten product but I am afraid the assurance by Babangida is a deceit if what we see today is not stopped forthwith. If the bare hands could not kill the elephant, the hands with barrels could be of help.

And I wonder what the

And I wonder what the Military is still waiting for flush out these guerrillas in Abuja!!!

@Kibaki

Kibaki indeed am sure your browser isnt OK.

Oshiomole resonates

Its still fresh in my memory how Adams oshiomole then nlc president floored okukpe on fuel subsidy removal-debate/confrontation on national tv during obj era, this led to his removal as adviser to ojb...The comrade guy exposed the incompetence of Okukpe. PRONTO! QED

@Ediri, stop fooling

@Ediri, stop fooling yourself-here-I know u are that kpako head tundemess--he does not think-very empty--if the first civilian governor of bayelsa state, Alams, assumed the mantle of leadership in that state in 2005-and oil was discovered there in 1957-----it simply means stealing started in bayelsa state just 7 yrs ago-when was lagos state kano and kaduna or imo states created then-what about the FCT in abuja? See the level of cheating in the SS? When boro started agitating for creation of states in 1960-a state was established for him only in 1996-that is the owners of the oil wells have been in charge just 7yrs ago out of the 60 yrs that tundemess and farouks have been stealing us blind--time for us to say good bye-

True talk

As it stands, things can only get worse. Even if we accelerate to the next election, we will find reason to install another moron while the hawks continue feed fat. No wonder General Buhari had to let tears. I weep too.

Tino

Kibaki on Okupe

You have said it all. People like Okupe who have been at the Villa during Obasanjo have enjoyed what they got there:stolen wealth which is why he will abuse Pastor Bakare, Tinibu and even Obasanjo himself if Goodluck is confortable with it to replace Abati.

Abati had played similar game before when he devoted The Guardian Newspapers pages for 11 days to abusing General Buhari to secure his present appointment.This is not the end of the game but then, this is one of the best attack-dogs PDP has.

Remember his abuse of Buhari last year when he said,"look at the people with him. They are all poor and dirty people." PDP!! Nigerians are dirty!!!

Like the protest against MAU like Doyin Akupke-animals

From attacking MAU, Rueben Abati and Ngozi over their work with Jona to Doyin Akukpe. They assume as semi humans we have no reasoning faculties. It was Ok 4 Jakande and Buhari to be hired by abacha-Onabule by IBB, Bola Ige OBJ-but not Ijaw man Jona. Yet they proclaim 1 9ja 4 my kids-The thing is for dem not to see you attempt to align with Jona-else u will be dead the next day-that is the metality of the baboons and snoopy dogs Bakare and Buhari wants to clone in (their) 9ja. The moment Jona attempts to get somebody to assist him-war breaks out from the camp of his domestic servants-whose pedigree as it concerns their hatred for anything Ijaw and the ppl of d SS in general is well known. But nurse no grudges against their oil revenues. That is why we have to do all to back the Ogonis. Bakare & Buhari want the oil wells 4 d 3 major tribes! Jona did not hire an ijaw man to help act as his attack rat or dog against SNG, ACN, PDP and CPC-na yoruba man like MAU! he hired-Yet they say Nay

It was Ok 4 Jakande to work with abacha-Bola Ige with OBJ-but not them for Ijaw man Jona. Yet they proclaim one 9ja 2 my kids-The thing is for dem not to see you ever attempt to align with Jona-else u will be dead the next day-that is the metality of the baboons and snoopy dogs that Bakare and Buhari wants to clone for (their) 9ja. The moment Jona makes the attempt to get somebody to assist him-war breaks out from the camp of the domestic minded servants-whose pedigree concerning their sworn hatred for anything Ijaws and the SS in general is well known. But nurse no grudges against the oil wells. That is why we have to do all to back the Ogonis.Bakare & Buhari want the oil wells 4 their tribes men! Jona did not hire an ijaw man to help act as his attack rat or dog against SNG, ACN, PDP and CPC-Like MAU like Doyin!

It was a "man of Belial" that

It was a "man of Belial" that incited the other Israelite tribes, other than Judah,( 9JA) not be loyal to King David:-This time we are seeing it done to Jonathan- in accordance to the evil dictates of Bakare"And there happened to be a man of Belial, whose name was Sheba, the son of Bichri, a Benjamite: and he blew a trumpet, and said, We have no part in David,(JONATHAN) neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: every man to his tents, O Israel. So every man of Israel went up from after David, and followed Sheba the son of Bichri: but the men of Judah (South South) clave unto their king, (Jonathan) from Jordan even to Jerusalem." (2 Samuel 20:1-2 KJV) Jezebel, a "daughter of Belial" if there ever was one, had two "sons of Belial" make false testimony against Naboth as in Bakare and Buhari are planning against(Jonathan) so that the thieving fuel subsidy scammers in 9ja) would acquire his oil wells in d SS by murder.

1st executive governor of Bayelsa in 2005 was ALAMS-lagos nko?

Chief Dr. Diepreye Solomon Peter Alamieyeseigha (JP) (first Executive Governor: 29 May 1999 – 9 December 2005)
Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (second Executive Governor: 12 December 2005 – 29 May 2007).Chief Timipre Sylva (Executive Governor: 29 May 2007 - 16 April 2008)Rt. Hon.

James Onanefe Ibori, Emmanuel Uduaghan, Samuel Ogbemudia, Anthony Aneni, Olusegun Obasanjo, etc, but who we want to lead, depend on us. 'Love thy neighbour as thyself' If these were the first executive governors of Bayelsa--then who was the first executive governor of Lagos, Ibadan, Kano Kaduna-sokoto, Enugu, and Imo state. So stealing started in only 7yrs ago-animals

Re: Dr Okukpe Et Al

I couldn't read this stuff, except something was wrong with my browser. The English construction was atrocious, and quite tasking. Is this Rev truly a researcher? Anyhow, if you were trying to say that Dr Okukpe is an asshole, there is no doubt about that. Nevertheless, he deserves your sympathy. Do you not see that he's about to be overcome by his excess weight due to excessive eating, from stolen money? Surely, judgment is come upon him, but he has no idea.

Can someone ask TB Joshua his take on President Jonathan. Thank you

WRONG STATISTICS MR REV

Your claim of 100million christains out of a population of 160million Nigerians is misleading and mischievious. I advise you check with CIA or UN country fact files to guide you in your future claims and assertions.

Great!

A reads-like-a-friend's-letter piece. Very much unlike the constellation of illogical, incoherent writers and challatans who parade the cyber realm in general, and Sahara Reporters in particular.

True talk

True talk Reverend. The unfortunate thing is that things are most unlike to change. The steam roller running down the cliff will not be stopped. Nigerians are not even aware of it, not to talk of mustering the required energy to attempt a stop. We are still preoccupied with pointing accusing fingers at Bakares and Buharis forgetting that a man has been saddled with the responsibility of Government.

We reap what we sow. not up to 3% of Nigerians are really interested in good government. We are happy if our kinsmen are eating. Even if it doesn't get to us. It has been our bane and most likely will continue. We thought the Hausas are worse, but GEJ has already taken the oskar prize on corruption, ineptitude, confusion and letting go of nearly everything, just to remain in power.

Your past heads of States,

Your past heads of States, Babangida, Abacha, Obasanjo and even shoeless Jonathan , are they children of the known? Takeless of your thieving Banker s and civil -servants!

Ethnicity (Tribalism in Nigeria) and Religion

Why are people denying the fact that ethnicity and religion are not part of the problems in Nigeria?

The people in the West are aware of the impacts of ethnicity and religion on their societies.

The only way to understand something is to completely detach yourself from it. Detach yourself from tribe and religion and you will be able to see things clearly. They have used religion to destroy Africa. People use religion to explain too many things rather than critical thinking. And as long as we see each other as different based on tribes and religion, we shall continue to have problems.

People need to brainstorm, make separate studies on ethnicity and religion and write a report containing solutions to be effectively disseminated to everyone as a form of new learning.
