The Aare (Dr.) Bolu Akin-Olugbade


IN what appears like a New Year message to President Goodluck Jonathan and his government, given on Thursday 1st of January 2015, Owu, Ogun state born billionaire, Aare (Dr.) Bolu Akin-Olugbade (Ph-D) gave the Nigerian President a strong worded advice to carry out 3 emergency changes in the Month of January 2015 for Nigerians to take him serious about his newly mouthed war on corruption.
The President had declared during a New Year church service in the early hours Thursday January 1st at the Dunamis International Gospel Center, Area 1, Garki-Abuja that his administration’s strategy against corruption was to strengthen the capability of institutions to nip the menace in the bud. The President said his idea of anti-corruption war was not about arresting suspects and parading them on the television. Hear him talk “We are coming out with programs and plans to clean up, these are things you don’t just use magical wand to wave off, otherwise before I became the president, there wouldn’t have been corruption in Nigeria” Mr. Jonathan was quoted.  Jonathan equally said “It (Corruption) is not just about shouting ‘corruption’, it is not about looking at one person, arrest the person and show him on television”. He later promised to create new action plan to tackle corruption in the New Year.  
“If President Jonathan want to show how concerned he is with the February election and if he is really genuine with the anti-corruption war let him cancel this Kerosene subsidy fraud they are engaging in because it is a total rip off, why should marketers be selling it at N100 instead of N50, government gives them at N50 a liter and they are selling it to the masses at N100. Are they going to tell us that the security agencies don’t know they are selling it at such illegal price?”
However, reacting to the President’s declaration in the later part of the day, the Owu, Ogun state born billionaire Aare (Dr.) Bolu Akin Olugbade who is equally an Oxford, England trained company law expert said the President can only be seen to be sincere with his anti-corruption war if he will be able to do three things in the month of January among which is the scrapping of the present regime of Kerosene subsidy which he (Akin-Olugbade) claims to be “one of the dirtiest act of corruption in the present regime”. Secondly, the President must declare his assets publicly and thirdly, the president must make publicise a forensic investigation of the allegedly missing NNPC $20 billion dollars and make it public knowledge. Aare (Dr.) Akin Olugbade who spoke exclusively to your Africa’s Number 1 Celebrity Encounter blog Asabeafrika during a New Year get-together party  at his elder brother, Omoba Sunmande Babajimi Akin-Olugbade’s Yaba, Lagos home was full of anger especially towards the alleged fraud regime going on between some NNPC/PPPRA officials and some  Kerosene marketers in Nigeria.
The Aare (Dr.) Bolu Akin-Olugbade....Ready to fight the Kerosene Subsidy Cartel
The Aare who almost lost his temper while speaking with this blog wondered why the minister of Petroleum Alison Madueke will permit such roguery to go on under her watch “You say Kerosene is for the poor and should be sold for fifty naira but nobody is selling it at that actual amount, they are selling it at hundred naira per liter. So, why the hell are we losing money? Why are we deceiving ourselves? And these are the same people the minister of petroleum wants to give federal allocation to, it is ridiculous, will she say she doesn’t know anything about it”.
Speaking further, Aare Bolu Akin-Olugbade advised President Jonathan to arrest the situation immediately “If President Jonathan want to show how concerned he is with the February election and if he is really genuine with the anti-corruption war let him cancel this Kerosene subsidy fraud they are engaging in because it is a total rip off, why should marketers be selling it at N100 instead of N50, government gives them at N50 a liter and they are selling it to the masses at N100. Are they going to tell us that the security agencies don’t know they are selling it at such illegal price? It is ridiculous, that is total corruption”
 “Yes, the petroleum price across the world has gone down because of fall in global demand; they were subsidizing it before now, but right now the subsidy is naturally removed for petrol but Kerosene’s landed cost is around hundred naira per liter, that is what they are paying for but the Federal Government is subsidizing and paying those people an extra N50 which is ridiculous. The mathematics of that is that the federal government is losing N50, the importers are paid with interest so why are you subsidizing kerosene? There is no portfolio in the budget for it, there is nothing in the budget for it and they have told the minister of petroleum to stop this nonsense and yet she will not do anything about it; that is very, very ridiculous” “These People (Kerosene Marketers) get 5000 metric tones of kerosene every month and the income they make from it is a million dollars every month. And there is no appropriation for it because they are violating the law, they get five thousand metric tones every month which they supposed to sell to Nigerians at fifty naira per liter but they are selling it at hundred naira and that gives them a huge profit of about a million dollars every month and that money is being shared between some faceless people in the PPPRA and NNPC. If the President wants us to take his anti-corruption war serious he must look into this and take an expedient action on it”
“I personally think Jonathan is a clean man but it is the people around him that are giving him credibility problem. Like President Shehu Shagari, Goodluck Jonathan is a clean man. Shagari was an honest man but it was his lieutenants that tainted his government, the same thing with Jonathan, I believe Jonathan is a clean man but his lieutenants are not clean; so, he needs to declare his assets publicly so that he doesn’t become a victim of their bad action”
Jonathan must declare assets publicly
The second issue the Oxford trained lawyer wants Mr. President to threat in order to be taken serious on corruption war is the issue of his asset which he has not declared since 2011 “Mr. President must declare his assets publicly; he has told us how much he is paying as tax, what is wrong in him declaring his assets?” “I personally think Jonathan is a clean man but it is the people around him that are giving him credibility problem. Like President Shehu Shagari, Goodluck Jonathan is a clean man. Shagari was an honest man but it was his lieutenants that tainted his government, the same thing with Jonathan, I believe Jonathan is a clean man but his lieutenants are not clean; so, he needs to declare his assets publicly so that he doesn’t become a victim of their bad action, and then he needs to call them to order and one of the first thing he needs to do to call them to order is to say ‘listen, this Kerosene subsidy should stop this year, right now, then we will know that he is serious with the anti-corruption war”

Forensic Search for the Missing NNPC Billions too
The final important thing the Egba High Chief wants President Jonathan to perform in order to show how serious he is with his anticorruption war is to immediately make the report of a forensic investigation on the missing $20 billion NNPC fraud public “Yes, Mr. President must immediately reveal the report of the forensic investigation on the missing $10 Billion Dollars now and let us know what happened to the money; with that he will have shown us how serious he is with the anti-corruption war. But when you keep on saying ‘I am going to fight corruption, I am going to fight corruption and you don’t do anything, there is no pro-active action from you, no action from you, you just keep on talking, talking it will be a sad loss. As far as I know I don’t think Jonathan is corrupt, like Shagari he is not corrupt but it is the people around him that are corrupt and he needs to stop that now so that the party, PDP can win this coming election”
