Presidency Orders Reversal of Suspension of DG Rural Electrification Agency Mrs. Ogunbiyi (Statement)



The Nigerian government Tuesday reversed the suspension of Mrs Damilola Ogunbiyi from her role as Managing Director of Rural Electrification Agency.

Her resignation effective 31 December 2019 has been accepted by the President to enable her take up her new UN appointment.

This was made known in a tweet on the official twitter handle of the Presidency.


The Minister of Power, Sale Mamman, has suspended the Managing Director of Rural Electrification Agency, Ms Damilola Ogunbiyi.

A statement by Aaron Artimas, the Special Adviser to the minister on Media and Communication made this known on Tuesday in Abuja.

Mr Artimas said that following some apparent infractions in the agency, the minister directed the managing director to proceed on indefinite suspension with immediate effect.

He said that Mr Ogunbiyi had been directed to hand over to the next most senior officer in the agency.

“Consequently, the minister has directed an immediate investigation into the activities of the agency towards re-positioning it for better service delivery,’’ Artimas said.

In another development, the United Nations Secretary General António Guterres has appointed Mrs Damilola Ogunbiyi of Nigeria as his Special Representative for Sustainable Energy for All and Co-Chair of United Nations-Energy.

Her appointment came after her extensive leadership experience and a track record of supporting energy access in Sub-Saharan Africa to these roles. She was the first woman to be appointed as Managing Director of the Nigerian Rural Electrification Agency.

Ms Ogunbiyi succeeds Rachel Kyte of the United Kingdom as Special Representative, Co-Chair of United Nations-Energy, and CEO of SEforALL.

However, Ms Damilola Ogunbiyi herself took to her twitter handle @DamilolaSDG7 to announce this to the general populace. In the words of Mrs Damilola,

“I’m very proud to announce I have been appointed the new @SEforALLorg CEO and Special Representative of the @UN SG for Sustainable Energy for All. As the world faces ongoing development challenges, it’s a true honor to join SEforALL & lead #SDG7 efforts

Damage gone wrong.So which clique of the cabal initially ordered her suspension in the first place if she has not been indicted/convicted? Perhaps the presidency cabal did their usual village thing while the president is also not aware as usual.

CORRUPTION HAS NO TRIBE AND NO RELIGION
The Impact of Ethnicity/Tribalism on National Development
Ethnicity has flourished because the Nigerian elites who inherited the colonial state have conceptualized development as transferring resources from civil public to primordial public. It is in this view that Cletus Umezinwa argued that Nigeria is a failed state, backing his opinion up with a number of factors that included cultural and value decadence, fragile political structure, poor leadership and frequent ethno-religious crisis. Conflicts in Nigeria most often link with religion or ethnicity, and mostly deplored to settle economic and political imbalances; breeding the evolution of ethnic militias such as the Bakkasi Boys; Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB); Odua People’s Congress (OPC), Egbesu Boys; Movement for Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND); Arewa Forum; Yandaba; Boko Haram; Ombatse group; etc.

The impacts of ethnicity include:

Inability to Fight Corruption: There is a tradition in Nigeria that forbids citizens from exposing or prosecuting fellow TRIBESMEN for CORRUPT practices. Corrupt tendencies are exhibited and laws violated, yet such individuals invoke ethnic sentiment to get away from, or prevent prosecution. For example, the private jet belonging to the president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) – Bishop Ayo Oritsajafor, was apprehended in South Africa over possession of $9.3 million allegedly meant for purchasing arms. Before the South African government could conclude investigation, his ethnic region and kinsmen were already in the media defending and exonerating him, and declaring war if their son is prosecuted. I don't know when Nigerians will change by facing the reality. If u see a Nigerian supporting any Corrupt fellow, it is either they are from the same tribe or religion. I hope and pray that one day, we will have a Nigeria free of Tribalism, Ethnicism, Favoritism and Religion Fanaticism.
