In Nigeria when subsidy is removed on petroleum, people protest & the whole country shuts down every activity & some patriots even die during the protest, but when hundreds of people are killed by sects using bombs, nobody stages protest, comments vehemently against the act or insults the president, because it didn't happen in their vicinity & none of their relatives are affected or because they are afraid to speak & get bombed too...
Where is that "Occupy Nigeria"?
Where are the Celebrities????
Where are the Opposition Parties?

This really stinks – NIGERIA SENATOR’S SALARY PACKAGE!!!

August 2nd, 2010 | Author: Peter Okali

Check out this email I received detailing the outrageous figures paid to a Nigeria Senator. Little wonder why everyone in Nigeria has political ambitions and will do whatever it takes to get there.

Basic Salary (BS) – N2,484,245.50

Hardship Allowance @ 50% of Basic Salary – N1,242,122.70 (I love this kind of hardship)

Constituency allowance @ 200% of BS  -  N4,968,509.00

Furniture Allowance @ 300% of BS – N7,452,736.50

Newspaper allowance @ 50% – N1,242,122.70 (Which kind newspaper be this, abi na online or hard copy?)

Wardrobe allowance @ 25%  – N621,061.37

Recess Allowance @ 10% – N248,424.55

Accommodation @ 200%  – N4,968,509.00

Utilities @ 30%  – N828,081.83

Domestic Staff @ 35%  – N863,184.12

One off payments (Severance gratuity) @ 300%  – N7,452,736.50  (Once they get fired.)

Motor Vehicle Allowance @ 400% of BS – N9,936,982.00 – Every Four Years

Senator’s Salary per month – N2,456,647.70
Total  = N29,479,749.00 Per Year
Allowance of Nigerian Senator: $1,500,000/year
GDP of Nigerian Economy: $45 Billion/year

A feeding frenzy!!!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

Compare with this -

Salary of the U.S. President: $250,000/year
GDP of the U.S. Economy: $13 Trillion/year
What do these Senators do to deserve this pay?

Amazingly, I saw a recent news video on YouTube of Nigeria senators in a session demanding an increase to their yearly allowance. These guys want a whopping N30 million every month.

Most of the Pharmacists, Engineers, Lawyers, Doctors, Welfare coordinators, Teachers/Lecturers, Engineers, Civil Servants and other productive professionals cannot boast of N1 million per year. What a pity !!!

What You Should Know If Arrested While Protesting In Nigeria occupynigeria

(1/1)

mr.official:
Quote

On January 9th, 2012, there will be massive protests against the removal of fuel subsidy across Nigeria, barring any intervention. As one who has handled a large amount of criminal defense cases within the past ten (10) years of practicing law, I know that when there is a massive gathering like the ones anticipated protesting actions by the establishment, it increases the likelihood of altercations and arrests. Accordingly, this is a cheat sheet on what to do if you are arrested in Nigeria while protesting against the removal of fuel subsidy this upcoming Monday. Share this article with as many people as possible and tell them to share with others that will also be protesting.

What You Should Know if Arrested While Protesting in Nigeria

         1. Chapter IV, Sections 39 and 40 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria gives you the  constitutional right to a freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. This is a guaranteed right and means you may assemble and protest peacefully against the removal of fuel subsidy, as you intend to.
         2. You DO NOT, under the constitution, have a right to fight, steal, hit others or engage in any criminal activity or conduct just because you are protesting. Such actions means you can and will most likely be arrested, charged if you are lucky, and prosecuted. If you are unlucky, as many incarcerated defendants in Nigeria’s jails and prisons are, then you could be arrested and detained indefinitely i.e. locked up and the keys thrown away with absolutely no due process accorded to you, despite the due process mandate provided in Nigeria’s constitution.
         3. The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), an organization that regulates lawyers and the practice of law in Nigeria, is available, per the decree/order of the NBA President Joseph ’Bodunrin Daudu, to provide  free legal services to secure your release and dismissal of charges filed against you; should you be arrested while legitimately protesting against the removal of fuel subsidy.
         4. You should have the contacts of the appropriate NBA staff handy. For all contacts visit the NBA here. Lagosians, I have listed at the end of this article, NBA representatives and their contacts to have handy culled from the website.
         5. Finally, understand your legal rights and how Nigeria’s Criminal Procedure works when you are arrested. The gist of it is as follows:

What Court has the Power to Hear Your Criminal Case if you are Arrested While Protesting?

The State Federal High Court where you are arrested. This means, for example,  if you are arrested in Lagos, then expect Lagos courts to have jurisdiction (power) to hear your case. Please review the structure of Nigeria’s Legal system here.

What Law Governs?
Nigeria’s Federal Criminal Procedure Act and the respective state criminal procedure laws.

What is Criminal Procedure?
It is the rules of the criminal justice system that help your criminal defense lawyer, prosecutors, judges and the police navigate the criminal courts. This is independent from Nigeria’s Federal Penal Code. The Penal Code sets forth the actual criminal violations you allegedly committed. For example, breach of the peace, unlawful assembly, battery, assault etc.

What Can You Be Charged with While Protesting?
If you do not commit any criminal act, hopefully nothing. If you do, then you can be hit with felony and/or misdemeanor charges. For example, Felony criminal assault, misdemeanor battery etc.

What is a Felony? What is a Misdemeanor?
When a defendant is arrested, with or without a warrant, they have a right to know what they are charged with i.e. the basis for the arrest. Nigeria’s prosecutors can charge criminal defendants with felony and/or misdemeanors offenses. In Nigeria, a felony carries 3years or more prison term while a misdemeanor carries 6months (at a minimum) to 3years jail/prison term.

What Happens When a Person is Arrested in Nigeria?

    * Nigeria’s Constitution requires when a police effectuates an arrest without a warrant AND the crime is a non-capital offense, they must release the defendant on bail; IF they cannot bring the defendant before a court within 24hours from the time they arrested and detained such defendant.

How About Bail? How Does that Work?
The police have the broad discretion per the Criminal Procedure Act to determine whether they will grant a criminal defendant bail. The judges/judiciary tend to be passive letting the police basically do whatever they want to do. This creates opportunities of abuse that has been ongoing for decades within the legal justice system, specifically detentions without trials.

How Bad Does it Get with Detentions Without Trials in Nigeria?
According to data collected by human rights organizations within  and outside Nigeria, most of the people who are in Nigeria’s jail/prison system are persons detained without trial who ended up being detained for 16-40years. The outcry from the international community over these atrocities has been huge but it has not really made much of a difference.

I salute and commend all Nigerians fighting for what they believe and will continue to provide as much resources and information as I can that will be helpful to you. Please be safe and understand the issues. You might be asked to articulate your understanding of the issues by a TV reporter or print news media. It would be very helpful if you have a clear grasp of the issues and are protesting because of what you believe because the world is watching.

You may feel your relationship or marriage is not what it ought to be right now. You might even feel your spouse is not good enough, however one thing is certain, complaining will not solve the problem. Start appreciating the good in them because what you appreciate will increase in value. Start praising God for that relationship, marriage or spouse. Praise God in that situation. If you are hurting or have lost something, God is the reason you have not lost everything. Read more on this on today’s devotional titled BE A GOD PRAISER THIS YEAR!

Agbakoba kicks against subsidy withdrawal

Tweet

January 2, 2012, 5:00 pm

News

A former President of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Mr Olisa Agbakoba, on Monday in Lagos, criticised the withdrawal of fuel subsidy by the government on January 1, calling it “an unpopular’’ decision.

Agbakoba stated that the government disregarded ongoing consultations with the different spectrum of the public on the matter.

“It is unfortunate. I am highly disappointed that government disregarded public outcry against fuel subsidy removal.

“There are ongoing public consultations on this issue and it was even debated at the National Assembly without any conclusion.

“I expected President Jonathan to have waited for the legislators to return from their Christmas break before taking any action on the issue,’’ he said.

Agbakoba, who also described the decision as ill-timed, added: “It is wrong for the government to take such abrupt decision about an issue so sensitive and unpopular.

“In spite of the fact that there have been scientific arguments by the government on the need to remove the subsidy, it should not have been imposed on Nigerians. The opinions of the people must be respected in a democratic system, ” he stated. (NAN)

Moved by the level of destruction and
gory details of how innocent lives were
lost at the St. Theresa’s Catholic Church
during the Christmas Day bomb blast,
President Jonathan openly wept
yesterday when he visited Madalla, a
suburb that shares common borders with
the Federal Capital Territory.
Jonathan, who had gone to commiserate
with the victims and relatives of the
blast, was touched by the wailing of
families of the bereaved. He was
conducted round the premises by Rev.
Father, Isaac Achi, the priest in charge of
the church.
Relatives of those affected by the blast
had to be held back as they rolled on the
bare floor, lamenting their loss.
On sighting the wailing crowd, President
Jonathan betrayed his emotions and he
was promptly dragged away by his aides.
Speaking later, the President promised
to carry out some drastic measures to
turn Suleja town, known for its notoriety,
upside down beginning from last night.
He said: “When the terrorists struck in
Niger State, it was in Suleja. Luckily the
local government chairman is here, we
are going to turn this place upside down,
if there are institutions here that are
harbouring criminality, we are going to
deal with it decisively, because Niger
State is a very big state and every
terrorist attack is in Suleja.
“My belief is that there are institutions or
individuals in Suleja that are harbouring
terrorists and we would deal with it
decisively. In any part of this country
where an individual or a group of people,
either traditional or religious institutions
are associated with terrorists will be
dealt with decisively. There will be no
sacred cows.”
Jonathan, while expressing condolences
to all Nigerians and the Catholic family
stated that: “This did not affect just the
Catholic Church, but it affected all
Nigerians irrespective of religious divide
because terrorism attack anywhere is
terrorism attack on the whole nation.
These are evil men being propelled by
evil thoughts and evil desires to create
confusion in decent societies.
“I sympathise with the Church, the
government and people of Niger State
for this act, but I assure Nigerians that I
would do everything to protect lives and
properties. Since this incident happened
we have been meeting. In fact, one of
the reasons why I did not come early was
because I did not want to disrupt things
at the site, I wanted things to be done
properly, that is investigation, because I
knew by the time I will come in there will
be crowd and a number of things will be
tempered with. Even yesterday and the
day before yesterday we met and we
would continue to meet.
“This night I am going to speak to
Nigerians about some few steps we are
going to take which I believe the public
should know, so that they will not be
embarrassed when they get to some of
the situations so that I will address them
tonight on television. There are a
number of things that we are doing and
will continue to do.
“Boko Haram started as a harmless
group in Borno State at a time they were
used by politicians to fester their political
interest, now they have grown
cancerous and Nigeria being the body,
they want kill the body and nobody will
allow it. Some people re exploiting it to
their own advantage, but terrorist attack
on any part of the nation is an attack on
all of us and all Nigerians will collectively
fight this terror. We will crush them.
We’ve seen what happened in other
countries. Terrorist attacks is not what
you will use magic wand to wave it off,
but collectively we will bring under
control and finally we will crush it.
“We will begin from tonight to take
different measures, different approach in
fighting Boko Haram and we must weed
them out from society.
“I sympathize with those who have lost
lives, properties and especially those
who have lost people dear to them.
When you lose life you cannot get it
back, how I wish it is something that we
can reconstruct but God has not made it
so.
“As the President and Commander in-
Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria I
will take actions that this will come to an
end very soon”.
Also speaking at the venue, the Niger
State Governor, Babangida Aliyu, told
reporters that compensation for the
victims will commence on Tuesday after
the holidays.
The governor said the committee set up
has concluded its work of assessment
and so compensation both for those who
lost loved ones and properties should
commence on Tuesday.
Aliyu, who said that he had no problem
with the church leadership saying it has
forgiven the attackers, said the
government would go after members of
the Boko Haram sect and bring them to
justice.
“I am happy Mr. President is here and
terrorism is not anything to sympathise
with. The Church can forgive terrorists,
but we in government cannot forgive
them until we get them and they are
punished properly and that is what the
President has promised us today”.
On the notoriety of Suleja, Aliyu said,
“you have forgotten that Suleja started
FCT, the whole headquarters was in
Suleja. So the cosmopolitan nature of
the place now has become so special
that we have been asking the Federal
Government to consider all the
contiguous states of the FCT including
the towns from Suleja, Mararaba,
because the security of the FCT is
contingent of what happens in the
neighbourhood.
“So am happy that what we have been
asking for has now been recognised.
Because there is a special need of this
place both in terms of security and the
welfare of the people. I believe we
should pay attention”.
Speaking on compensation of victims,
the Governor said, “What we are doing is
to access what has happened, we will
make donations both for those who have
suffered losses and properties. The
committee has concluded its work and
by Tuesday we will come and start
compensating”.

1) One barrel of Crude oil = 42gallons or
159 litres

... 2) Our Refineries (i.e 4) Installed
(combined) capacity = 445,000
... barrels per day

3) Actual refineries capacity due to
ageing equipment = 30% i.e. 133,500
barrels per day
.
4) . . 133,500 barrels = 21.2 million litres

5) Local required consumption (F.O.S) =
12millions litres

6) It means that even our MORIBOND
refineries can actually meet our local
consumption need of petroleum.

7) The cost structure of crude oil (i.e.
Qua Iboe Crude Oil) production;
- Findings / development - $3.5
- Production cost - $1.5
- Refining Cost - $12.6
- Pipeline/transportation - $1.5
- Distr/bridging fund Margin -$15.69

8) True cost of one litre of petroleum
anywhere in Nigeria;
- Total sum cost = $34.8
- 1ltr cost = $34.8/159 litres = $0.219
- Naira equiv. 0.219xN160= N35.02k
- Add Tax N5 + N35.02 = N40.02

9) Let FGN refute the above composition
and if not, they should tell us how
they came about N65/litre.

10) Locally refined products cannot be
sold at International price.

11) We really do not need FGN SUBSIDY
as there was NONE in the first place.

12) What is LACKING, is the WILL to
enforce LAW ON CORRUPTION.

Pls re-post until it gets to the right quarters for their response;

We still stand a chance as a COUNTRY.

happy new year and more rewarding and prosperous days ahead. Rejoice Fǿя̩̥̊ this is your year of greater glory
Kayode Ajulo, a lawyer, founder/ Chairman of the Board of Egalitarian Mission, Africa, a non-governmental organization maintaining and promoting the belief that all people are, in principle, equal and should enjoy equal social, political, and economic rights and opportunities, bares his mind on the issue of petrol subsidy removal and , the NNPC probe.

Proposed removal of fuel subsidy
As far as I am concerned, it’s like chasing a shadow. When I was boy, I always had this funny idea; when the sun is up and you see your shadow by your side, there is this tendency to try to step on it but doing this is an impossibility and that’s is what the government of the day has been trying to do. It is impossible. General Olusegun Obasanjo tried it, what was the outcome?

First, there is nothing like fuel subsidy. What are they removing? The other day , Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala said it’s the cost of bringing the fuel to Nigeria and I say to Madam Finance Minister that that’s is the cost of administrative incompetence and inefficiency. Let the President tell me he is indirectly taxing us, I will consider that and give it a thought.

Our constitution is so clear on what a government must do for its citizen. Sec 14 of the constitution proclaims and made it mandatory that our country shall be a state based on principles of democracy and social justice.

At subsection (2) (b), security and welfare of people of Nigeria is so emphasized but are we having that? Every household has turned into mini_local government, everybody has to sink well or borehole for water, generator either big or small; even for security, each community or ward has to contribute money to secure the service of OPC or vigilantes for protection.

Now, tell me, what are the citizenry getting from their government? You can’t send your child to public school, armed robbers and bombers have taken over Nigerian streets and the only thing that seems to connect the citizenry to government is fuel and you think you ll be successful to add insult upon injury by saying you wanted to remove fuel subsidy. It is chasing of shadow, I won’t subscribe to it.

I voted for President Goodluck Jonathan, I supported him and I am still supporting him and therefore want him to succeed. He needs to get his facts right, I am in Labour Party not by happenstance, we are for the people and the president needs to understand what is good for his people, his government is either not appreciating the issue of fuel or deliberately telling us lies.

The whole problem of subsidy came from importation of fuel. How then can we stop the importation particularly when we are oil producing country? We need more refineries. Please check how much the government claimed to be spending on subsidy and find out how much we need to build refinery. The money spent this year alone is enough to build five refineries in Nigeria and I say to you that five refineries with about three we already have will make importation of fuel history in Nigeria; we will not only stop the importation but we will also be exporting refined products. At this stage of our national life , what we should be agitating for is not the exportation of crude oil but finished products, but can’t because of corruption.

This is the reason I wrote the president recently telling him that what he needs to remove is corruption not fuel subsidy.

My candid advice to our Assembly men is to use their constitutional power to do the desirable, if the President refuse to make provision for the subsidy in the budget nothing should stop the Legislators from inserting same.

Audit report of the NNPC, prepared by KPMG and SS Afemikhe & Co, disclosed untidy accounting procedure.

Going by the audit report on NNPC, several crimes have been committed. It behoves on the agency of the government concerned to be proactive and do its statutory work of considering the report, investigate and prosecute where necessary. This is the only way to make Nigeria work, it’s about being responsible for your action and application of the age long formulae of reward and punishment. But if we allow it to be business_as_usual, it will be too bad for the country.

Until we do this, we will continue to have this problem. I am a lawyer and one of my areas of business is oil and gas. I have been severally embarrassed when our would be foreign investors raise, issue of corruption in our system, this is bad for our image. It’s bad for our economy and growth.

Revelations on the fuel mafia made public by the Senate
I refused to be deceived, they are part of the scheme as justification for the removal of fuel subsidy; if actually they are the problem, what stops them from being arrested, investigated and prosecuted? .

This only shows that we are only using democracy to deceive ourselves. Democracy is supposed to promote egalitarianism, freedom and protection of people’s rights, but, unfortunately, you find a situation where your elected representatives cannot come out to tell you a simple issue of what the populace should pay or are paying.

This revelation is not new to some of us. Some years ago, a similar allegation was made against one of those mentioned; he was arrested, quizzed and released by the police. Today, the personality is a celebrated monarch.

The whole issue of subsidy creates room for under-the-table dealings and the best thing to do is to do the desirable: let’s have more refineries and stop the importation of finished products. I am not unmindful of arguments being canvassed that investors will only build refinery only after the removal of subsidy and I say this is another conspiracy to hoodwink the citizenry. How much is the price of fuel before the cost of importation or are you telling me that if you are refining fuel in Nigeria, you must add the cost of importation before you sell it to us?
