Bola Tinubu's Presidential Ambition is under threat due to his Drug Crimes, Survey concludes .

A survey was conducted Nationwide by  The Lagos State Forum , A Political Forum, based on an article entitled " Bola Tinubu's Heroin-Tainted Assets Forfeiture Judgement" . Bola Tinubu is the National Leader of the APC , The ruling Party in Nigeria and the former Governor of Lagos State.

The Platform used to conduct the Survey is Lagos State Forum, which  is a public forum, open to all Nigerians of all political persuasions , dedicated to the discussion of politics in general. The result of the Survey obtained is as shown below .


Also shown below is the link to the Survey which is : https://www.facebook.com/LagosStateForum/posts/1048591021975662 .

ANALYSIS OF THE RESULT:

From the result obtained, I can deduce the following :

The people overwhelmingly believe in the article that Bola Tinubu was involved in NARCOTICS TRAFFICKING AND MONEY LAUNDERING . He is therefore a Suspect in the US.

The people believe that Bola Tinubu and his accomplices operated an Organization which Distributed white Heroin, a controlled substance under Title 21 of the United States Code.

The people believe that Bola Tinubu was involved in the Distribution Operation of  WHITE HEROIN, which was conducted on a Large Scale and the proceeds of the operation Substantial.

The People believe that Bola Tinubu is not fit to hold Public Office which include the position of the President OR Vice President.

The People believe that Bola Tinubu has not shown any REMORSE for his action in bringing SHAME to the FATHERLAND . He has contributed to the BAD IMAGE  problem of the Country abroad.

Nigerians are said to be heavily involved in drug trafficking, shipping heroin from Asian countries to Europe and America; and cocaine from South America to Europe and South Africa. The large numbers of ethnic Nigerians in India, Pakistan, and Thailand give their gangs ready access to around 90% of the world's heroin (FBI, 2008). In the United States, Nigerian drug traffickers are important distributors of heroin, from importing it into the country to distribution level and selling it to lower-lever street gangs, (USDOJ.gov, 2006).

 Nigeria is also said to be the hub of African narcotics trafficking, and Nigerian poly-crime organizations continue to expand their role in narcotics trafficking worldwide. Nigerian trafficking organizations are reported to control the drug markets of Sub-Saharan Africa, and operate drug distribution networks from strategic locations throughout the world. Nigerians transport a large portion of the heroin abused in the United States; they smuggle South American cocaine to Europe and Africa, especially South Africa, and they export marijuana--the only narcotic cultivated in Nigeria--to Europe and other countries in West Africa, (FBI, 2006).

According to the USDoJ.gov and US-DEA (2006), in the United States of America, record of arrests of Nigerians and other citizens of the world involved in illicit drug trades between 1986 and 2010 also shows an upward trend in the business, with 1986 registering the lowest number of arrests of 19, 884 persons, while 1999 had the highest number of 41,297 arrests (see table 2 in the appendix). 
The report notes that close to 50% of Africa’s drug couriers arrested in Europe in 2011 were citizens of Nigeria. Nigeria also topped the list of major transit routes of heroin destined for Europe. The report notes that Nigeria features prominently among West African countries that produce and export cannabis to countries in Europe.

Available records of arrest with the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) indicate that there has been an exponential and steady increase in the number of persons arrested for drug trafficking-related offences. From 464 drug traffickers arrested in 1990, the statistics stood at 8,826 drug traffickers arrested in 2014. The statistics further revealed that between 2000 and 2014, a total number of 86,314 persons were arrested for drug trafficking related offences.

From a political point of view, drugs traffickers have hijacked the entire policy and political processes of governments and states in West Africa including Nigeria, and also institutionalised criminality in the conduct of public affairs which plays itself out in terms of the way in which the cartels, as a powerful, well-financed and highly organised special interest group, takeover policy-making through their proxies, and sponsor political advocates and protectors whose day-to-day dealings effectively put criminal interests ahead and above all other interests.

New figures obtained exclusively from the Nigeria Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) shows that hundreds of Nigerians are on death row while others are serving various jail terms in several countries abroad. According to the figures, 73 Nigerians are presently on death row in Malaysia.  650 serving different Jail terms in Thailand 144 also in São Paulo Prison, Brazil


The imperative of Raising the Red Flag

Drug trafficking is registering new alarming trends in Nigeria with disturbing and subverting effects on public health, good governance, economic growth, and security.

The increase in the illicit drug trade has led to the creation of local markets for the consumption of illicit drugs such as Cannabis, Cocaine, Heroin, Amphetamines, Methamphetamine, and other mind-altering psychotropic substances.

The abuse of these drugs has resulted to damaging health problems, broken homes, domestic violence, low productivity, loss of a job, road traffic accidents and delinquent acts like stealing, pilfering, truancy, assault, and rape.
All these create an unsafe environment, which constitutes a great threat to the peace, safety, stability, and security of society.
Drug trafficking has created a bad image for the country as innocent Nigerians travelling abroad for genuine purposes have been subjected to humiliating, embarrassing and dehumanising searches at major international airports under the assumption that every Nigerian is presumed to be drug baron or trafficker. Drug trafficking has led to the arrest, prosecution, conviction, and execution of Nigerians in foreign countries over drug related offences.
Also worrisome is a situation where persons arrested, persecuted and convicted for drug-related offences, after serving jail terms or while on bail often return to illicit drug commerce. 
RECOMMENDATIONS:
i)  Never allow Drug Barons into Politics. They should be Banned from actively participating in Politics. Drug Traffickers are known to carry their skills which they have accrued in the line of their Drug career into Politics.so therefore polluting the polity of the country through institutionalised criminality. They are mostly undemocratic in their character, practice  Kleptocracy and do not obey the rule of law like Bola Tinubu,  The APC National Leader.

(ii) Attitudinal change among Nigerians should be encouraged. The perception of Nigerians towards material wealth and the get-rich-quick syndrome, at all cost, should be discouraged. There should be a shift in focus and emphasis from acquiring material wealth at all cost, to moral rebirth, ethics, and social re-orientation. Nigerian should refrain and desist from glorifying ill-gotten wealth and affluence. Any wealth or riches, which the source is unknown should not be celebrated, this will help instil the values of hard work, honesty, and dignity of labour among Nigerians. A better and more honourable way of earning a living should be revealed to Nigerian youths through teachings and empowerment programmes.
(iii) The government should provide cannabis farmers with high yielding seedlings for food and cash crops such as maize, yam, cassava, plantain cocoa, groundnut, cotton and so on in order to discourage illegal cannabis cultivation and boost food supply and food security.
(iv) Constant and aggressive enlightenment programmes on the ills of drug trafficking should be encouraged. Ignorance is one of the factors that promote illicit drug trade in Nigeria. The government needs to initiate and implement public enlightenment programmes to sensitise the general populace on the inherent dangers of drug trafficking and abuse. Such programmes should provide information on the consequences of trafficking in illicit substances. This will give members of the public opportunities to have informed opinions about the drug scourge and desist from this criminal enterprise.
(v) National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) should be strengthened through sufficient funding. The agency should be well funded and equipped to meet the challenges of the modern drug crisis and enhance the performance of the agency. 
vi) The Government should Strengthen the law on Drug Trafficking and make sure that offenders are dealt with immediately.

Bola Tinubu’s Criminal Past cannot be overlooked, for the sake of good democratic practice in Nigeria


            
                                                                    Senator Bola Tinubu


1)     Forgery allegations have earlier been the subject of a legal tussle between Senator Bola Tinubu
and Former Lagos lawyer,  Late Chief Gani Fawehinmi.

Top among his crimes are drug and money laundering–related crime which had led to the confiscation of Senator Bola Tinubu’s 460,000 US dollars (about N62 million) by a US court in 1993.

Senator Tinubu was docked at the US District Court in the Northern District of Illinois State in relation to the charges. According to the petition, the records show that an American Special Agent, Kevin Moss, had deposed to an affidavit, alleging that Senator Bola Tinubu was probably involved in illicit drug and money laundering activities in violation of US laws 18 USC SS 1956 and 1957.

The agent also averred that the money held in Senator Bola Tinubu’s and his company’s accounts at the US First Heritage Bank, N.A. and Citibank International "represents the proceeds of drug trafficking, making the fund in the accounts forfeitable to the United States, pursuant to 18 USC S981 and 21 USC S881."

Any doubt as to the veracity of the depositions of Special Agent Kevin Moss in terms of the forgoing is erased by the fact that Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu engaged the US procedure of Plea bargain which resulted in the US court confiscating the $460,000 in the foregoing terms on September 15, 1993 by US District Judge John A. Nordberg.


2)  Forgery and falsification of claims relating to his educational and professional qualifications.

Senator Bola Tinubu neither obtained a bachelors degree from the University of Chicago nor was he a Certified Public Accountant as he (Tinubu) claimed in the screening form he submitted to INEC in 1998.

Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu never attended either the University of Chicago or the Chicago State University at anytime contrary to his claims. Neither did he obtain any B.Sc degree in Economics or Business Administration from any university. Indeed, he never qualified as a certified public accountant.

3)  Falsification of age.
On Form CF 001, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu claimed to have been born in Lagos on March 29, 1952 whilst by passport No. A158399 issued by the Federal Republic of Nigeria on 16th February 1988, he was entered to have been born on 29th March, 1954 in Iragbiji, a place in Osun State of Nigeria.


4) Senator Bola Tinubu contravened Section 183 of the same constitution while being the Governor of Lagos and simultaneously remaining as a director of Compass Finance and Investment Company Limited.



Records of the CAC (Corporate Affairs Commission) in Nigeria confirms that as at 23rd July 2002, Senator Bola Tinubu remains a director of Compass Finance and Investment Company Limited in addition to both Abiodun Agbele and Mueez Akande, identified as his long standing drug and money laundering associates in the Affidavit of Agent Kevin Moss.

Children are our priority. We must make education a priority for our children.




Our public Schools are not well funded to produce good results, so is our teachers who are not adequately trained. Our children are not encouraged to take Maths and Science subjects.
