Dear President Goodluck Jonathan and honorable minister, Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke, I am personally very happy about the urgency which this millions of euro mansion allegation in Vienna, Austria has been refuted and taken. Consequently I would want to inform you all, and fellow Nigerians that I went into action immediately after recovering from the shock of hearing that such amount of money had been invested in a foreign land in this manner in search of the truth.
With all sense of frankness and fairness I can unequivocally say that I have as a concerned and disturbed patriotic citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria living in Vienna, Austria gone deeply and investigated this saga. I used all the available means and otherwise to get to all the people and agencies that are very important in finding the truth. My curiosity and sincerity in digging out the fact nearly got me into trouble at different occasions. Therefore, I can beat my chest and say that there was no iota of truth in this accusation. Some school of thoughts may have it that I am just an ordinary individual whose investigations could be limited and could easily be rejected or punctured by law on technical ground. As a result, I am waiting for the final pronouncement of the official findings which I believe that it will not be different from the naked truth I have just said.
In consideration to this my honest private investigation on the bogus mansion and its result, honorable minister Madam, let your celebration start now because you are a conqueror for your God has given you another important victory to the shame of the devil and the evil ones. I did not find any mansion in Vienna, Austria in the name of Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke the honorable oil Minister Federal Republic of Nigeria. And I challenge anybody to prove me contrarily including “Heute” newspaper. Consequently I tender my unreserved apology for this misleading publication as someone who brought a translated version of the newspaper’s report to the Nigerian audience outside Vienna, Austria.
The record must be kept straight that ‘Heute’ newspaper dated 7.11.11 on page 11 carried the news that Nigeria’s oil minister had got a mansion in Vienna, Austria and some Nigerians living in Vienna have got a copy of that paper including the Nigerian Embassy whom I have also had contact with regarding this fairy tale in my candid opinion. My article was not ambiguous as I stated clearly that my reactions were based on the report of the newspaper and had also asked the oil minister to refute the allegation or resign from her position.
I am not a blackmailer, a politician, a contractor and evenly not looking for any favor from any individual or government in any form as to sell my conscience and integrity. I do not equally involve myself in dubious activities. I am just a patriotic concerned reliable citizen who also feels the pains of corruption by our political leaders in Nigeria. My actions are focused towards social change for the good of all Nigerians. This is what I am doing and will continue to do.
Therefore I think that I did a patriotic work by bringing a translated version of the already known news to the Nigerian audience and equally made a genuine patriotic call not only as a concerned Nigerian when I said that the oil minister must clear her name or honorably bow out from office but also as a Nigerian who is doing something in his own little way for the sought change we all are yearning for to take place. No Nigerian in Austria was happy after having read that insult from “Heute” newspaper but as usual most of them took the discussions to their sitting rooms, café bars and their clan meetings or to their small group of friends for sympathy.
Mr. President Sir, this humiliation and insult was not only a damage to the honorable minister but also to Nigeria as an entity. Your morality as the commander in Chief of the Armed Forces Federal Republic of Nigeria who appointed Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke as a minister and your entire cabinets are equally not spared. Accordingly, genuine concerned Nigerians like me are expecting you to please restore our dignity and pride by encouraging and supporting speedy investigation and legal action against the newspaper and their agents because anything short of this to the knowledge of the public would be a colossal failure. In other words, please no diplomatic settlement outside the eyes of the public should be considered in any form otherwise the coffin of the damage would have been sealed.
Sir, the real foreheads of the “Terrible Goliaths” which you said that are ready to kill their fathers and mothers or even their children just to stop your government maybe about to be exposed for your anointed stone to strike like David in the bible. Get to the root of this matter because from every indication Sir, it could afford you the opportunity of unmasking some of these monsters in the name of “Goliaths” or their agents.
In retrospect to the brouhaha that trailed the re-appointment of the oil minister and the unwarranted uproar that is now associated with her including this FAKE mansion in Vienna, Austria it is now so obvious that some forces are after her. May God continue to protect her.
Fellow Nigerians, we all should not forget that north, east, west and south - home is home, for that reason, let us all in unison play our respective roles well to move Nigeria forward and do away with blackmailing and distractions in any form. We should not allow ourselves to be a willing tool in causing pains to others. We must criticize genuinely and constructively because objective criticism brings the best out in any reasonable government.
Kill that ethnic politicking in you and let us leave legacies for our children and not ill gotten billions in the bank from blackmailing and corruption. Nigeria must move forward.
Long live the federal Republic of Nigeria, long live President Goodluck Jonathan and long live the oil minister Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke.
A concerned patriotic citizen
