Siemens Bribery Scandal: Jubril Aminu, 4 Ex-Ministers Exposed!!!

Cornelius Adebayo Exposed!

The names of four former Nigerian Ministers of Communication allegedly bribed by German Telecommunications Company, Siemens has been revealed by filings at a Munich court in Germany.

Senator Jubril Aminu: The face of shame? 

According to court papers, former ministers, Bello Mohammed, Tajudeen Olarenwaju, Cornelius Adebayo and Alhaji Elewi were paid over $17 million dollars as bribes to secure contracts. The contract in question was not revealed.

Apart from the four former Ministers, Senator Jubril Aminu and the head of Nigerian Immigration Office, Chuka Nwizu also received large amounts of bribes from Siemens.

Gen. Olanrewaju, once convicted of coup plotting, fingered again!

The court focused on bribes between 2001 and 2004 connected to Reinhard Siekaczek, a Siemens employee who was a manager in a telecommunications equipment unit.

Siemens has sold telecommunications equipment in Nigeria, but the ruling does not specify what contracts Siemens was seeking when its employees paid bribes. It also does not outline what, if anything, the recipients of Siemens’s money did in exchange for it.

Bello Muhammed, Minister of Communications 2002 attending ITU conference. He took bribe too!

Anton Winkler, a spokesman for the prosecutors in Munich, said that prosecutors have not interviewed those who were named in the court ruling as bribe takers. No action will be taken against those people, because German courts do not have jurisdiction over a non-German receiving a bribe outside of Germany.

 

In its Oct. 4, 2007, ruling against Siemens AG, the Munich State Court named the participants in 77 bribes by company officials in three countries. A court spokesman says the information was garnered from witness statements and Siemens documents and carefully fact-checked before presentation in the ruling. The court didn’t interview the alleged bribe recipients before issuing its decision. Below, the information as presented in the decision.

  1. …and the raging storm continues!!

  2. Nigeria is going to be a great nation, no doubt, especially when the public servants are aware that it is now almost impossible to steal money. I hope it is not too late to catch even past rogues? I am SPECIFICALLY refering to that rogue who Buhari/Idiagbon regime tried to bring to Nigeria via a suitcase! Is it too late to grab him?

  3. Cornelious,
    now I see why his son at howard university interned at seimans last summer. no experience D student hint hint, payback. might be worth investigating!

  4. Emeka Aneke (Wiltshire)

    Why am I not surprised that Jubril ‘holier-than-thou’ Aminu’s name is in this list? Anyone who knows Prof. Aminu well will tell you that he reeks of corruption.

    Aminu had always had a craftily devised mechanism of currying favour from and protection of any President since Babangida; in the same vein, deflecting attention and suspicion from himself, in order to perpetuate in his honeycomb. We have seen this before and recently witnessed how he turned himself into Obasanjo’s rottweiler, attacking and antagonizing Atiku at every turn (though, Atiku deserves little or no sympathy because of his lack of good judgment).

    I had always believed that ‘probity’ and ‘honesty’ were two words lacking in Jubril Aminu’s dictionary. I can certainly say that this revelation is ‘a drop of water in an ocean’. And not until the EFCC have turned their full searchlight on this sorry-of-an-academic would we know what has kept him ceaselessly gunning for public and political offices rather than the classroom.

    As they, “Watch this space”.

  5. Now we have confirmed who the Bribe-Takers were, we should see that ALL of them are well punished for their sins and big crimes. Jubril Aminu greatly disappointed us Nigerians, ‘cos we thought he was eminent. No wonder he confirmed Ali! He should not be Hon. Senator again.

  6. Fellow Nigerians,

    We all know that Nigeria is not a poor country. In fact Nigeria is more blessed than some of the so-called advanced countries that our children are toiling right now, doing lowly jobs. EFCC should investigate theses and other case cases, and bring these thieves to book.

    The sad thing is that, this bad practice is still ongoing. We know that Oil price is close to $100.00 per barrel, yet no good road, no good schools, no proper Medicare. Very sad. We have to raise up against these thieves called Political elite. Political office in Nigeria is opportunity to loot. What has become of all the noises of EFCC about stealing Governors, ministers, not to talk of Baba himself !!!!!!!. God dey. They will not carry the all this money to haven and the shall be reveled
