Nigeria's runaway governor
The BBC News website profiles Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, the Nigerian governor who is under investigation after jumping bail in the UK.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/4499962.stm


Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, governor of Nigeria's Bayelsa state, has an official CV that boasts awards including Best Governor on Security and the Golden Trophy for Good Governance.
British prosecutors argue that his achievements also include money laundering to the tune of £1.8m ($3.2m).

The governor denies this charge - but responded to it by developing a new talent as an escapologist as he jumped bail and fled the UK, eventually reappearing back in Bayelsa.

Nigeria's anti-corruption agents also say he is a master of disguise, donning women's clothing as he fled - though the governor denies this. But he told the BBC that he does not remember any other details of the long journey home.

Rumours

One Nigerian paper claimed that the rumours of cross-dressing were in fact put about by British intelligence.

Whatever the true details of his escape, the governor has not gone home to a warm welcome.

On the contrary, no sooner had he arrived than demonstrators began calling for his departure from office, and the state assembly served notice of impeachment proceedings.
If removed from office, he would lose the immunity from prosecution that he enjoys in his office as governor.

In fact, he is already being prosecuted by the Kaduna Code of Conduct Tribunal - the only court which has the power to remove his immunity.

Projects

Those who are being kind say Mr Alamieyeseigha is a product of Nigeria's corrupt democratic system.
"The present democratic system in Nigeria is faulty as it is incapable of producing visionary, selfless and popular leaders," says one critic.
His opponents say "Alamco" - he got his nickname from the Alamieyeseigha Campaign Organisation of the 2003 general election - is hardly a charismatic leader, and has abused the trust of Ijaw people he claims to represent.

They feel he has spent state money on unnecessary projects like building a new government house at the cost of over 10bn naira ($77m), an airport in his native town of Amassoma, and an Olympic-sized stadium in the state capital, Yenagoa.

Who cares what his side of story is?

The fact remains that he stole money, laundered money, arrested in UK, he jumped bail in UK ran back to Nigeria, after he was impeached, was arrested and taken to court, he pleaded guilty and was convicted.

So tell me which part of the above is not clear enough?

Ni·ge·ri·a  (n-jîr-)

A country of western Africa on the Gulf of Guinea.  Population: 150,000,000. A country of known "big mouths". They talk alot of shiyyt but never back it up. They are used to suffering unlike no other persons on planet earth. For fifty years they've been taken on a ride by their government.  For Fifty years they've been violently,and condomlessly, "mind-fucke*d" by the political ruling class. They believe that God will come down from the heavens to solve their problems. Their Senators are the highest paid Government officials on earth, earning an average of $1million suskies per annum. The citizens are known to fight everyone else but the person that punched them in the face (i.e Biafrans' hatred for the Yorubas even though the Hausas barbecued them 1967-1970). The most religious people on earth, hypocritical as all hell as indicated by almost daily reports of at least one of their citizens being arrested in one part of the globe or the other for either drug or financial crimes. Their brightest brains are always killed off systematically by the State. Old, senile, and blindly followed ex-warlords usually endorse other old, senile, murderous, and terribly corrupt military ex-Heads of states as Presidents in civilian elections- - - so long as the necessary bribe has been paid! It is believed that Jesus' first stop on his return to earth will be to this shiyyyt hole.

You better start caring about other people's side of story. especially when it was about Nigerian politics.

thats my position man you are entitle to urs. for me obj, ibb GJ etc are bird of a feather and didnt OBJ and his cohort steal our money? pls educate me if i dont know.

Your position, based on an apocryphal and incomplete news report from a non-completely reliable source is slow!

chidexy:

I am not saying that the CNN Job for the former disgraced New York Governor is a job in politics. I pointed that out just to show that politicians take care of their own. I am in no way supporting Alami's appointment (if it's true), but I wouldn't be surprised if it's done. It's done the world over. Nigerians have the shortest memory in politics and bringing his name and face up to national limelight will help in erasing his negative image - if in doubt ask Babangida

Please remind me in the UK or USA where a man convicted and sent to jail was given a government job afterwards.

onye_ngbu:

I am not saying that Alams is not a thief and I am not also in position to say he is  . . . .

If you are not in a position to say he is a thief after he was arrested in a country with a sane legal system, from where he fled, was convicted in Nigeria, jailed and assets beyond his means are seized WHADAFUCK are you in a position to comment on in life?

Some here are commenting foolishly as if they know for sure that Alams was given a federal govt appointment; even though, very strangely, only Sahara reporters knows about this "appointment" (just that, they don't know what is or for that matter, what it is called ).
Some others have fallen into fights with each other and are exchanging words. Shame.

Why do you think he needs his own coalition? Are you somehow suggesting that to this point, this same man who cleared out all the ministers the very first week he became Acting President, has not gotten his own coaliton and all now? Are you somehow suggesting he have another nincompoop at the helms of things again?

The man is showing you what substance he is made of and you are here busy deluding yourself into believing that he is still not where he wants to be in terms of cabinet yet. Are you for real?

Ok, since you say you aren't a halfwit, can you tell us what federal function alams has been appointed to? Next, can you tell us the name of the function?
Of course, your answer to both will be "no I can't, because the 'news' story didn't actually say". Doh! Only halfwits wouldn't question such a "news" story but instead, find crazy scenarios and angles to build in. Na wa! cry cry cry

Don't nigeria and britain have extradition pact?The said man should be extradited to britain to face his criminal charges.

However,but we all know that nigeria is a rogue state,why are we always surprise when things like this happen?Almost 99 percent of ex and serving government officials in nigeria are overripe for jailyard,the only thing keeping them out of jail is the rogue nature of the country.

Would the answers to that justify the publication of outright lies in the press? That is all I am concerned about. Why should a news agency publish blatant lies and why should seemingly intelligent people join in propagating such lies?
