Gen. Buratai Hails Wole Soyinka at 90

 

On Tuesday, July 16, 2024, at the Korean Cultural Centre in Abuja, former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. (Amb.) T.Y. Buratai, joined other dignitaries to celebrate the 90th birthday of Nobel laureate Professor Wole Soyinka. The event, titled “KONGI’S HARVEST 2024,” was organised by Arojah Royal Theatre and themed “Wole Soyinka: The Messenger and His Messages.” It featured performances, talks, and the Abuja premiere of the documentary “Ebihirome Road: The Museum of Memory” by Kola Tunbosun’s Ologo Africa. In his remarks, Buratai, who was represented by Maj. Gen. Bulama Biu praised Soyinka’s immense contributions to literature and his unwavering dedication to human rights and democracy. He described Soyinka as a national treasure whose works have had a profound impact on both Nigeria and the global community. “Wole Soyinka’s achievements are a testament to the power of literature and the arts in shaping society. His works have not only brought international recognition to Nigeria but have also inspired generations of writers and activists,” Buratai said

 

However, Buratai who commended the naming of the National Theatre in honour of the literary icon, also used the occasion to highlight the lack of adequate support for the arts in Nigeria. He lamented the insufficient funding and resources allocated to cultural institutions and initiatives, which he believes hampers the growth of the arts and limits the potential of talented individuals in the country. “The arts are a vital part of our national identity and heritage. Yet, they continue to be underfunded and undervalued. It is crucial that we invest in the arts and provide the necessary support to nurture the creative talents that abound in our country,” Buratai emphasised. He called on both the government and the private sector to prioritise the arts, arguing that a thriving cultural sector can contribute significantly to the nation’s socio-economic development. The event was a vibrant celebration of Soyinka’s legacy, featuring various Wole Soyinka-themed performances and insightful discussions on his works and influence. The documentary “Ebihirome Road: The Museum of Memory” provided attendees with a deeper understanding of Soyinka’s life, including his arrest and imprisonment during the Nigerian Civil War.

 

The army general, advised the organisers to ensure that proper arrangement is made to show the movie to young Nigerians as a way of bringing them to speed about recent histories that they were not part of, and to motivate them to reach for the sky. Organizers, including Om’Oba Jerry Adesewo, Artistic Director of Arojah Royal Theatre, expressed their commitment to continuing the tradition of honoring Soyinka annually. “This is not just a celebration but a dedication to preserving and promoting the legacy of a great sage. We must tell his story to inspire future generations,” Adesewo remarked. As the celebrations concluded, there was a renewed call for greater support for the arts, ensuring that the contributions of figures like Wole Soyinka are not only remembered but also serve as a foundation for nurturing new talents and preserving Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage.

Court Orders Major General Umaru Mohammed To Forfeit Ikoyi, Apapa Mansions

The Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, has ordered the final forfeiture of five properties linked to the former Managing Director of Nigerian Army Properties Limited (NAPL), Major-General Umaru Mohammed, to the federal government.

Justice Chukujekwu Aneke issued the final forfeiture ruling on Wednesday after a request by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) lawyer, A.O. Mohammed.

The properties, which include No.8b, Bedwell Road, Ikoyi; No.3, Force Road, Ikoyi, Lagos; No.14, Glover Road, Ikoyi, Lagos; No.6, Marina, Ikoyi, Lagos; and No. 28, Point Road, Apapa, Lagos, were found to be fraudulently misappropriated and the proceeds of the sale diverted for personal use.

The EFCC had told the court that an investigation revealed that the properties were proceeds of an unlawful activity and that the former Army General had diverted the funds for personal use.

Justice Aneke had earlier ordered the interim forfeiture of the properties on March 4 and directed the publication of the order in a national newspaper, thereby inviting interested parties to present their arguments against the permanent forfeiture of the properties government.

On Wednesday, the EFCC’s lawyer, A.O. Mohammed, moved the application for the properties’ final forfeiture, stating that the commission had complied with the court’s order regarding the publication.

“It will be in the interest of justice for the court to grant the prayers being sought and also order the final forfeiture of the property to the federal government,” the lawyer said.

The judge, after listening to the submissions, ordered the final forfeiture of the properties to the federal government.
