May 20, 2015 – Jonathan Ogbia Kinsmen List Contracts, Projects Abandoned Under His Administration, Call Him Prodigal Son, Demand Apology

The people of Ogbia Local Government in Bayelsa State, President Goodluck Jonathan’s home council, have described him as a prodigal, who has no balls to call his contractor friends to order and has allowed the community dotted with many uncompleted projects.

Angry that they have nothing to show for Jonathan’s reign as Nigeria’s president, they have demanded an apology from him for the abandoned and uncompleted projects in the area.

The demand came via a resolution at a meeting Monday by some Ogbia communities who threw their weight behind Comrade Oniekpar Ikuli, the Ijaw Youth Council Director of Mobilisation.

From the proceedings of the meeting, it was not President Jonathan alone the Ogbia people have grudges against.

They also have grudges against Barr. Azibaola Robert, the CEO of Kakaatar Engineering Limited, said to have been the main contractor for most of the abandoned projects. The communities said they are supporting Ikuli to sue Robert to redeem payment for services rendered for Jonathan’s campaign.

The case will be heard at an FCT High Court on the 28th of May, 2015.

The Ogbia people said for the six years they were privileged to have produced the President, the area has little or nothing to show for it, as most of the jobs approved were awarded to companies owned by Jonathan’s friends. They said the contractors have refused to execute the jobs and Jonathan has equally refused to call them to order.

Top on the list is Kakaatar Engineering Limited, a company formerly known as Mangrovetech Engineering Limited which controls over 80 per cent of the contracts in the area that have been abandoned.

They said this agitation became necessary as the government of their son winds up and their only hope now is the belief that the fear of General Buhari will be the only reason these contractors might resume work in the area.

Some of the awarded jobs they are begging Kakaatar to execute are:

  1. Shore erosion control works at Akipilai, Ayakoro and Otuoke towns awarded by the Ministry of Transport at a cost of N7,503,344,599.
  2. Construction of 2000 rooms hostel at Federal University, Otuoke at a cost N4 billion. It was awarded by NDDC.
  3. Otuoke/Ikima Internal road network of N4 billion awarded by NDDC.
  4. Opume/Okoroba 9.5 Km Road at the cost of N10 billion.Also awarded by NDDC.
  5. Bayelsa State Cargo Airport (Sandfilling) 4 Million Cubic of Sand at N10 billion.

The Ogbia people said they have compiled all the abandoned projects in a petition they are giving to the EFCC, since Jonathan has refused to call his friends to order.

Outside Ogbia and Bayelsa, Kakaatar is also linked with various contracts.

Some of them are:

  1. NIMASA awarded shipbuilding/dockyard construction (civil and infrastructure)mDelta State at the cost of N18,457,283,591.91
  2. FCTA awarded provision of engineering infrastructure, Kyami District, Abuja at the cost of N60,887,492,656.65
  3. FCT awarded Karshi-Ara road in FCT at a cost of N4,097,185,656.30
  4. Federal Ministry of Works awarded 14km Mbaise-Ngwa road in Imo state at the cost of N2.94 billion.

    You kinsmen are the “prodigal sons”. Why did you overwhelmingly vote for Jonathan when he did nothing for you? Of course, his contractor friends took the money and embezzled, as they would not be held accountable by Jonathan who publicly said stealing is not corruption. Nothing was accomplished but you blindly and foolishly voted for him again. Shame on you all, the love of country should come before sentiment of he is our son or kinsman. Your lawsuit should be thrown out for lack of merit, as you supported him all along, so your agony should continue. What lessons are your children learning from you, that failure needs to be rewarded? I hope you learnt your lesson.

      Thank you so very much sister Lola for your straight talk. Your comment was short, right on target, reasonable and very educative. I wonder why the complaint about the president’s corruption is coming forth now? They are now calling on the guy they overwhelmingly voted against to come to their rescue. What a shame! My dear sister, your comment touched my heart, and it should serve as a wakeup calls to all Nigerians that cannot reason above their tribe,culture, language and religious. Thanks.

    Jonathan himself is also a thief. It is going to be really difficult for him to checkmate them. He is indeed a wasteful son of Balyesa. He rather allow his cronies milk Nigeria dry than for them to expose him. This is a guy who refused to declare his assets despite his boss Yardua did, Jonathan refused. What do you expect?
