Opening Remarks by Comrade Debo Adeniran, Executive Chairman, Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, CACOL at the Exploratory Conference on the Lagos Open Parliament (Part three), LOP-3, held on 30 August, 2016 at the RIGHTS HOUSE, 48, Adeniyi Jones Street, Off Oba Akran Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos


On behalf of the entire members of the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, CACOL, and the Board of Governors, I welcome you all. We deeply appreciate the honour bestowed on us, demonstrated by the presence of everyone here today for this Exploratory Conference; a component part of the process that culminate into our periodic Publication called the ‘Lagos Open Parliament, LOP’. We say, a big thank you, to all for coming.


Majority of us here today, are conversant with the LOP and can simply aver that, ‘there goes CACOL again doing what they know how to do best’, but some are probably just getting to know about the LOP as a Project of our coalition for the first time. It thus becomes imperative to give a background on what the LOP is all about, I therefore crave your indulgence to do so very briefly.


The Inaugural LOP which was tagged ‘Lagos Open Parliament: True State of Lagos by Lagosians held in 2013. It led to a number of claims made by the supporters of the Lagos state government then. Many of them claimed we were sponsored to rubbish the ‘achievements’ of the Babatunde Raji Fashola-led Lagos State Government which they claimed were ‘visible to the eyes’.


This prompted us to go to town to inspect the so-called improvements in infrastructural development in the State. Our study showed that some aspects of the rot in infrastructure in some places mentioned in our earlier study had been improved on, whereas most of the other issues were yet to be addressed.


Our findings revealed dismal governmental failure especially in the area of the execution of the capital side of the budget and we discovered that Lagos had largely been governed by false pretences.


We thus deployed more tools in our research and field work following the lessons drawn from the inaugural LOP and have continually empirically modified our methods in scope and size in terms of research and strategy which have made the LOP what it is today.


And indeed, our findings confirmed the reality that Lagos State was being governed under false pretences. We discovered and established the ‘cosmeticism’ in government and governance in Lagos state as at then. Our empirical deductions from our findings were what we published as Lagos Open Parliament 2, LOP- 2.


The LOP, as a Project of our Coalition was conceived to be done annually, it is basically a Project targeted at; monitoring government performance and policies, promoting transparency and accountability and enhancing healthy interface between the civil society and government in the overall interest of the development of Lagos State as an entity.


Our research strategy utilizes different tools to carry out our self-assigned patriotic task to monitor government activities; including questionnaires, interviews, news analysis, visual investigations involving usage of videos and photographs etc.


Our Coalition published our findings in 2013 in the first edition which we tagged ‘Lagos Open Parliament, LOP 1’ in 2014 and have ever since continued to monitor Lagos state government’s activities on annual basis.


Generally, the LOP is a process with several events embedded in it, these include administering of questionnaires; compilation and analysis of data and news items (TV, radio, newspapers, online news and social media). Three interactive conferences are also held within the process of the LOP i.e. Exploratory, Validation and Public Presentation Conferences. The Public Presentation marks the end of the annual process.


The analysis and reviews in each LOP cover only for one year as specifically chosen by us, but at most times our work begin May 29th of each year preliminary activities such as this Exploratory Conference. For example, the next Publication i.e. LOP3 will capture May 29, 2015 to May 29, 2016 as the period under review.



Without preempting what our end-point findings and deductions from the ongoing LOP process will be, it is important to comment on the state of Lagos state from the point of verifiable and objective analysis.


Arguably, the present regime appears to have begun on a good note given the avalanche of praises it has received so far from Lagosians based on what can apparently be seen by them physically.


That the government commenced the construction/reconstruction on 114 roads within its first 100 days in office is public knowledge; the Light-Up Lagos, the pedestrian and fly-over bridges under constructions; the improvement in government openness etc. are undeniable and commendable.


The recent launch of the first Helipad in the country is a hallmark achievement plus an improved environment in terms of security and some social services.


We, however strongly condemn some obviously anti-poor policies of the government as the negative effects of the policies definitely diminish the gains of the so far celebrated achievements of the government. So while commending the Ambode regime for some noticeable developmental projects being implemented across the state and encouraging the government not to relent, the regime must avoid snatching with the left hand what it has offered the poor Lagosians with the right hand.


These policies include the illogical move to enforce a ban on street trading and hawking; the over-taxing of the poor, the under-employed and unemployed considering that the conditions of existence of these categories of citizens have hitherto been painful. A life characterized with penury and deprivations; a situation which remain unchanged and as a matter of fact deteriorating rapidly.


The ban on street trading represents the increasing of the sufferings of the poor and toiling people who ordinarily are trying under the present extremely harsh economic conditions to fend for themselves. Majority of Lagosians and Nigerians have had to resort to self-help almost on every facet of life consequent upon the gross failure of government to fulfill its constitutional role of provisioning for the welfare and social security of the citizens. We question the logic behind the ban when those affected are largely already impoverished consequent upon the failure to facilitate gainful employment opportunities on one hand and failure in service delivery by the government on the other.


We affirm that the people are basis of governance, and government is a social contract. The reason government is instituted in the first place is to harness the resources of society for the social welfare of the people as enshrined in Chapter 2 of the Nigerian constitution. If government has failed in doing this, it is unfair and wicked for government to compound the pains of the impoverished who are engaged in self-help for their survival and existential issues by imposing unwarranted taxes policies that disrupt their source of existing.


Again, we question the rationale and the legality of the decision recently made by the Lagos state government to replace the hitherto existing unconstitutional Executive Secretaries with equally unconstitutional Sole Administrators considering that elections for Local government leadership had been long overdue.

It is disappointing and anti-democratic for Lagos State to illegally run Local Government Councils through the imposition of Sole Administrators as against the letters of the constitution.


We demand therefore that government must tow the path of true and constitutional democracy by organizing elections in the Local government councils to correct the aberration and illegality left behind by preceding one. Appointing Sole Administrators is akin to replacing illegality with illegality and it abuses the Constitutional status of Local Government Councils as an independent tier of government.


We call on Governor Ambode, not to pander to the dictates of political expediency or opportunistic political leaders to pollute his positive ratings occasioned by popular projects he is currently implementing across the state with anti-democratic dictatorial tendencies like the one under review.


Any government that lacks a vibrant and solid social base exists only in the air, because government and governance is all about social inclusion. Any government that develops policies without the consciousness for social inclusion will always fail. The only way the government can demonstrate the campaign mantra of ‘change’ upon which it rode to power to the people of Lagos state in particular and Nigeria is to generally and characteristically alter the hitherto existing situation and positively too.


I conclude by thanking you all again for honouring our invitation. Please we encourage us all to participate in the deliberations which promise to be very incisive. We shall also be administering questionnaires at this conference; we therefore seek your contribution to this process by filling a questionnaire on infrastructure and other government activities in your part of Lagos State.


Long Live, Lagos State

Long Live, Nigeria

The Centre for Cultural and Religious Rights, (CECURR) has added its voice to the scathing criticisms that have greeted the Federal government’s decision to ‘subsidize’ the dollar for the annual Muslim Pilgrimage to Mecca, in Saudi Arabia.

The National Coordinator of CECURR, Mr. Debo Adeniran, speaking against the background of the government’s decision to peg the rate of the naira to dollar at N197 per dollar said, “It is indeed certain that circumspection and crucial consideration for the current state of the economy were thrown out of the windows when the apparently illogical and contradictory position was taken.”
“If there had been circumspection, the government would have
prioritized the biting needs of the country beyond the narrow and personal interests, given the present economic recession in the country. The thought process that led the step is seriously illogical and smacks of insensitivity on the side of the government to the priorities and real needs of the vast majority, who mostly live in penury.”
Noting that the government previously had pledged to stop sponsoring Pilgrimages and religious activities, Adeniran said, “apart from lacking circumspection and rationale, the step contradicts the ‘change’ mantra upon which the present regime rode to power. Certainly, a total fulfillment of separating religion from State/Public Affairs would have conformed to the change Nigerians expected from the ‘change’ the regime promised during campaigns.”
“As a matter of fact, the ideal situation should be that persons or groups going on religious pilgrimages must sponsor themselves instead of waiting for the government for any concessions. CECURR’s position on what the nature of Government – Religion relationship should be, is that, government must not be involved in any religious affair beyond what is constitutionally required of it; just like all other Nigerian social formations and individuals, no particular group or persons should be given special preferences at the expense of others.”
Adeniran questioned the manner of secularism being practised in Nigeria, asking, “is Nigeria a secular state at all? If it is, we need to ask, which kind? The kind that favours sponsoring the activities of two dominant religions at the expense of several others? Implicit in Secularism is the exclusion of religion from public affairs; that religion and religious bodies should have no part in political or civic affairs or in running public institutions, but it has always been practiced in its reverse in Nigeria.”
“This is the fundamental question behind the present public outcry against the decision of the government to keep getting involved in the financing of religious activities. Politicians only use such unconstitutional interferences in religious activities to achieve their insatiable greed and lust for power on one hand to perpetrate and perpetuate their corrupt practices on the other.”
In concluding, the CECURR leader said, “we call on the government to at all times restrain itself from meddling in religious concerns. For our country to truly achieve the harmony it deserves we act decisively to avoid contradictions like the present one rearing their head, we cannot afford to continue to ignore or reject our reality.”
“Significantly, with the present economic recession; the free-fall in the prices of crude oil and the continual fall of the naira against the dollar, the dialectic step expected of government is to take drastic steps to revamp the economy. It would have made more economic sense if it were the Manufacturers and other actors on the economic scene that were granted concessions as this would facilitate their access to raw materials and will go a long way in mitigating the present crisis. It is only within a buoyant and healthy economic situation that almost all other activities of citizens can be best carried out with the lowest level of frictions.”
“The present regime has the golden opportunity to correct the aberration of the past; it can write its name in history in gold if it demonstrates political will by halting the interference of government in religious affairs beyond its constitutional responsibility.”

The Coalition against Corrupt Leaders CACOL, has lauded the National Human Right Commission, NHRC, for revealing the perpetrators behind the electoral fraud committed in the 2007 and 2011 general elections, urging the commission not to relent until the culprits are judicially brought to book.


This came on the heels of a report by the NHRC that indicted the former governor of Delta state, Emmanuel Uduaghan; amongst other ex-governors, the former Chairman of the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Maurice Iwu and other government agencies, political institutions and security agencies, as participants in the electoral manipulations that occasioned the 2007 and 2011 general elections. The NHRC released the report at its headquarters in Abuja on Thursday.


Other indicted persons and institutions include former Governor of Edo State, Prof. Oserheimen Osunbor, a former Acting Governor of Kogi State, Clarence Obafemi, and the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate in the 2015 election in Benue State, Mr. Terhemen Tarzoor.


Reacting to the development, the Executive Chairman of CACOL, Debo Adeniran wondered with dismay how a case of political corruption of such magnitude as revealed by the NHRC report be treated as if the acts allegedly perpetrated by the indicted individuals and agencies are of no consequence.
Adeniran said, “Political corruption itself which the revelations from the NHRC report represent is the ‘father’ of economic corruption and other forms of corruption. The corruption in our society today stemmed from political corruption and manipulations. The mould of leadership that have ‘foisted’ itself on the people for so long have all benefitted for the subsisting political corrupt background upon which they rose to leadership. And this how they have ensured that corruption dominates almost all facets of our existence.”
“With corruption having its tentacles spread to every facet of our polity and encroaching the whole system; the impunity and effrontery of characters that ‘pulled off’ such appalling crimes under our noses represent assaults on our intelligence and national psyche.”


“And with the very controversial ex-INEC boss, Maurice Iwu and others in play here, the revelations by NHRC validates the assertions Nigerians have always made that our electoral system is constantly manipulated. The Judiciary, INEC, and some other agencies have failed in discharging their responsibilities fittingly; the breaching of our electoral laws, when it happens is done with impunity in our country, yet the government and its agencies hardly bat any eye-lid. Cases of electoral malfeasance are hardly investigated or prosecuted, therefore culprits are not punished to serve as deterrent to other perpetrators of electoral fraud and as a result, electoral manipulations still characterize the electoral processes in our country.”


The anti-corruption Crusader, Mr. Adeniran in concluding called on the Federal Government, the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami,  the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris,  INEC and other relevant institutions, to swing into action on the NHRC report.


“Investigations must be further conducted on the findings of the Commission, prosecution of culprits must be done and severe disciplinary actions must be awarded against those found wanting after judicial process is completed. This is how we can forestall electoral misconduct in the future.”

The Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, CACOL, has called on former President Goodluck Jonathan to speak out on the plethora of corruption allegations and charges against his former aides and some of his family members following the anti-corruption war embarked upon by his successor, President Muhammadu Buhari.


Speaking through its Executive Chairman, Mr. Debo Adeniran following the former President’s visit to incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday at the Presidential villa, the Coalition averred that if the interest of the country was much more important to the former President than whichever interests that he probably intends to protect by his silence, the logical thing is to speak out.


Adeniran asked, “we wonder how helpful the position of the former President is to the efforts to rid Nigeria of corruption? Or is his position perhaps based on possible culpability in some of the exposed corruption cases? As a Statesman, a former President and a Nigerian, it should be expected of him to stand clearly without equivocation on the side of the drive against corruption which has been one of the major banes that have stunted the country’s growth and development.”


The immediate past President, whose regime was and is still being perceived as profoundly corrupt, was reported to have told the media after his meeting with his successor that he was not ready to comment on the various cases of corruption so far instituted against his former ministers and aides by the present administration. He was reported to have evaded the question during an interview with State House correspondents. The former President said he would only speak on the corruption cases when all the matters had been resolved in courts.


The leader of CACOL said, “Dr. Goodluck Jonathan was reported to have said that there are too many cases such that it will not be fair to make comments adding he will do so at the appropriate time. This we see as unpatriotic of a Statesman who had been privileged to lead to the country. It would have been Statesmanlike and commendable if the former President expressed outrage over the tons of alleged corrupt acts that were perpetrated under his watch.”


“This his position as a matter of fact is giving more vent and strength to the insinuations that he was directly involved in the corrupt practices that happened during his tenure. Morally, as the Chief Accounting Officer of his regime i.e. person at the desk where the final buck stopped as President and Commander-in-Chief of Armed Forces who superintended over a regime that has been described as the most corrupt in the history of country, the ex-president should have without hesitation clarified his role/s during his rule as they relate to the allegations.  This will clearly help the anti-corruption drive and the progress of the country. His refusal to comment is disappointing and sound more like holding the country to ransom or the “catch me, if you can” attitude and amounts to putting the personal interests of a very tiny few who are incurably corrupt over the vast majority and overall National interest.” Adeniran added.


In concluding, the CACOL leader said, “we are advising the former President to speak out to put the interest of country above any other interest. This will be more honourable and will demonstrate his ‘innocence’, sense of patriotism, genuineness and Statesmanship at this stage when the various plagues of corruption have battered our country almost into a pulp. The former President should remember that whether he talks now or not, the fight against corruption will continue and progress to fruition. What the people do not know today, they can definitely know tomorrow and by then it will be too late and useless for him to talk considering that he would indirectly have allowed the country to expend unnecessary energy, resources and time before the truth is brought to light. ‘Whatever is done in the dark, shall come light’ as a saying goes.”

Following yet another murderous rampage by herdsmen on the Kodomun community, Adamawa state, in the North East of the country which began on Monday; the Centre for Cultural and Religious Rights, CECURR has called on the Federal government to abandon its somewhat lackadaisical and insensitive disposition toward the incessant killings of innocent Nigerians.

CECURR speaking through its National Coordinator, Mr. Debo Adeniran, called on the government to embrace pro-activeness and decisiveness to immediately put a total halt to the killings that has persistently been perpetrated by Herdsmen along the length and breadth of the country for years.

Adeniran said “a government that is sensitive enough and knows its onions will value human lives and would have been outraged by the loss of lives and property whenever herdsmen carry out their barbaric bloodletting activities even before now.”

“One would have expected that by now government would have evolved an extra-ordinary security approach to the killings similar to the ones adopted against the Boko Haram insurgents, Arepo pipeline vandals/militants, the Niger/Delta militants etc considering that the activities of herdsmen across the country is gradually assuming terroristic dimensions.”

The media had reported resumed violence involving herdsmen and villagers at Kodomun village in Demsa Local Government Area of Adamawa State which claimed 15 lives and left many injured. Terror was said to have been unleashed on Kodomun village and some neighbouring villages on Monday at about 6p.m. when the villagers were resting after a burial of an old woman. The death toll stands at 30 at the moment according to media reports.

The National Coordinator of CECURR said “clearly, the modus operandi of these herdsmen reflects that the incessant attacks are consciously coordinated which make them go beyond the narrow confines of skirmishes. That the herdsmen carry sophisticated weapons and the incessantness of these gory occurrences also portrays an ‘army with a cause’. It appears the murderers are ahead of the government on this matter, as the herdsmen appear to operate freely without constraints and with bare-faced immunity.”

“We are therefore calling on government to dump the ‘kid gloves’ attitude towards the bloodletting activities of herdsmen. A look at the pattern of their operations reveals that the attacks cannot be treated in isolation as they cut across the country giving it a very bold outlook of a ‘nests of killers’ conjoined and working in a network. Theoretically, there is the dire need to interrogate and deconstruct the background to these tragic incidences which have remained incessant and apparently undying so as to be able to identify the immediate and remote causes. This is what will help in finding solutions to the trend of senseless killings by herdsmen.”

“The government must not wait for these incidences to occur before acting as it is already a ‘phenomenon’; anticipatory intelligence work must be on the top plate given that the groups involved in these killings and their locations are identifiable. This will make areas that are potentially prone to the violence to be isolated for preemptive security arrangements to forestall the further senseless killings.”

The leader of CECURR challenged the government be proactive in carrying out its responsibility as a government. “One of the most fundamental reasons governments are instituted in the first place is the protection of lives and property and to ensure the social well being of the citizenry as enshrined in Chapter 2 of the Nigerian Constitution. Where lives and property are being senselessly lost on such large scale as we have in this country can only mean one thing, and that is – the failure of government and governance! The time to act is overdue!”

The Executive Chairman of the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, CACOL, has reiterated the Coalition’s call for diligent investigations and circumspection in handling the revelations from the allegations of Budget padding in the Federal House of Representatives.

The CACOL Leader was speaking against the background of the almost daily expansion in scope of the ongoing imbroglio over allegations of Budget padding allegedly perpetrated in the Green Chambers within the processes of evolving the 2016 National Budget. He said, “it is gradually becoming clearer if we approach the scenario within the ambit of circumspection and rational thinking that indeed, corruption Is deeply seated in our body polity as a country, which makes it possible for scenarios like the present one to keep rearing their ugly heads so regularly.”
“The episode brings to the fore the challenges of a corrupt system trying to cleanse itself of corruption. Let us assume without conceding and without prejudice to what diligent investigations may lead to; the allegations in the present saga if established to be criminal in any way also implicate the whole Legislature as an arm of government and the Executive.”
Adeniran traced the saga from point it came to public knowledge saying, “Since the former Chairman, Committee on Appropriation, Mr. Abdulmumin Jibrin opened the ‘can of worms’ over Budget padding in the 2016 Budget, the story has remained an expanding and developing one. The story has moved from allegations to counter-allegations, from public outcry for a probe to the emergence of a group within the House of Representatives called the ‘Transparency Group’ agitating for same, from petitioning to law suits etc. Agencies like the Department of Security Services, DSS, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Independent Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC are said to have been given the nod by President to perform their statutory roles in handling the disturbing episode.”
The CACOL Chairman, queried, “we ask, how is it possible that the Executive and the Legislature combined did not detect this Budget padding before the Appropriation Bill was passed into law? Given that the reasons adduced for the delay in assenting the Bill to become Act were predicated on padding and procedural issues on two occasions, how come that in spite of the seeming ‘clinical scrutiny’ an ‘inclusion’ of as much as 40 billion naira could go unnoticed till now? If assume that the Green Chambers hatched the padding plan and implemented it, how come did the Red Chambers not notice the padding? Why do we have a bicameral parliament if not for the sake of checks and balances?”
Probing further, he asked “equally, the Executive that presented the Bill could also be asked how it missed it out this padding, especially because it prepared? The ‘padders’ from this saga appear to smarter than the Executive and Legislature combined. This is why we call for circumspection in dealing with this, we believe it is only a thorough interrogation of the complexities, particularly the fundamentals to the background of the Budget padding story. That way, we as a country can decipher the means and ways of engaging the evil called corruption that bedevils our polity, to very objectively progress in the battle against the Frankenstein monster.”
In concluding, Adeniran said “we hasten to state that our position is without prejudice to what the constitutionally empowered law-enforcement and anti-graft Agencies are doing or going to do on this matter. As a matter of fact we call for expedited action so that we as a country can draw our lessons from the saga; apply punitive against any judicially established criminalities in the padding episode, and move forward with the stance that ‘Never Again’ shall we be caught in this kind of messy situation.”  
“To avert occurrences like the present one in future, the country needs to review all the laws that govern the funding of the National Assembly to vest more power in the Bureau of Public Procurement, Accountant-General and the Auditor-General of the Federation to monitor financial inflow and outflow to/from the lawmakers in order to make it even more difficult for the them to access money from public coffers.
The Accountant General and Auditor General should play supervisory roles on how the Legislature and their Constituency Projects are funded. Even if they pad the budget, they won’t be able to pocket it since such won’t escape the prying eyes of the Bureau of Public Procurement, Accountant-General and the Auditor-General of the Federation.”
