Bayelsa Crash - NDLF Blasts Navy by koruji(m): 2:48am On Dec 19, 2012
Here is a different take on this weekend's sad saga.
I think the implications of NDLF's point is even more fundamental than corruption.
If governmental officials pay their way - food, transporation and the like when engaging in private matters.
They are likely to be less vulnerable to "physical and political accidents".
Except of course in Nigeria where only the politician and the connected get the best services on the people's dime.
Nevertheless, this an interesting take that has long-term implications for a nation that really wants to be a nation.

NDLF Blasts Nigerian Navy, Says Presidential Aide Douglas Should Be Made To Replace Crashed Helicopter
Posted: December 18, 2012 - 23:15

The Nigeria Democratic Liberty Forum (NDLF) has described as a “disgrace” the conduct of government officials in failing to distinguish between official duties and private events.

In a statement issued today, the group said it was appalled by the crass display of impunity by the Goodluck Jonathan administration in the deployment of federal government's military assets for private and social events to the extent that military equipment has become a perk of office.

“The prior use of similar chopper by President Goodluck Jonathan during the burial of his brother in Otueke and the use of a Naval chopper by Presidential aide-Mr Oronto Douglas for his father's burial which resulted in the loss of the Nigerian Navy helicopter is reprehensible,” NDLF said.

It called on President Jonathan to reimburse the Nigerian military at charter cost for the use of its air assets for the burial of his brother and to desist from such use from now on.

In the case of presidential adviser Oronto Douglas, NDLF said he should be compelled to replace the lost helicopter or pay the insurance premiums of the helicopter to date if the Nigerian government bothered to insure the equipment in the first place.

“The Nigerian President should note that President Barack Obama would not use military equipments for private social functions let alone his aide,” NDLF sneered.

It said of the American practice: “While the Nigerian President uses the Presidential jet unrestricted, the United States President reimburses the government for part of the cost of the use of Air Force One, the Presidential aircraft (not a military aircraft) for time clocked in flying to political events.
“That shows how the peoples' business should be conducted.”

.MAKE NDLF GO SIDDON FOR BUSH angry angry angry

So na today them sabi say Nigerian government misuses everything that they own?!

Okay... Let me jug their memory a little.

Everyday, we see bullion vans overtake us in traffic, driving rough at breakneck speed, and with it are two vans of atleast 10 Nigerian police officers. SO the NDLF does not know that its not the Nigerian Polices Job to be escorting money abi?!

OKAY!! What about the new trend of using the Nigerian Military to escort Oyinbo men and guard their houses?! So the NDLF has not seen this treand as well abi?!

OKAY!!! What about the one of rich people buying police escorts?! Even for their wives and children?!

OR the trend of using the Nigerian Police vehicles to carry cement for private citizens?!

WHAT of the Nigerian Army APCS that are stationed at peoples houses?!

OR MTN using the Nigerian ARMY as Maiguard for their shop in Port-harcourt?!

Abeg make them drex go far.. Oil companies & banks have bought up all our security personnels

Everything is this country is misused.. I am surprised that the Nigerian C-120 Airforce planes have not started flying commercial and Armoured tanks have not started running Port-Harcourt to Asaba or Lagos.

And the interesting part is the this helicopter that crashed was bought with TAX PAYERS MONEY O!! Na still our money them go use replace am, na still our money go maintain am.. But when time to use am reach, na for Politicians. These Army and Police that Oyinbos and co have turned into Maiguards, bodyguards and Nwa boy are paid their salaries with TAX PAYERS MONEY!! The guns they use to protect these people were bought, maintained and armed with TAX PAYERS MONEY!!

ABEGI!!

I will be needing the Nigerian Navy Submarine to go and catch crab on the ocean floor next year o!!

My thoughts diligently revealed. Why must limited resources be used in such capacity. The cost of putting this birds up is great and we should be making an effort to cut costs.

Whoever wrote that stuff up there is a massive 1diot! President Goodluck Jonathan is the commander in chief of the armed forces of Nigeria. He is the highest ranking military officer in Nigeria. People just say things out of ignorance.

If you talking about Oronto Douglas, that is a different matter. We can debate that. That is something that has been going on in Nigeria since I can remember. For your information, the military does provide the helicopters for hire. The police and military provide a lot of commercial services to the public. It is ignorant to think that all police and military service to the public is free. And if you think that GEJ sits in his office everyday allocating who will use helicopter, then you are also ignorant. These things are handled by protocol. And he has complete access and right to use any military helicopter available. That is what obtains all over the world.
