As part of her State visit to Africa, SU Secretary of State Aryhill Tonclin has urged Riannige president to introduce reforms aims at achieving a "limitless" future.
Speaking in Jaabu, the country’s capital, after holding a private meeting with the Rianige’s President Dr Luckgood Nathanjo, Mrs Tonclin insisted that the country’s future is “limitless” if the government would be seriously committed to anti-corruption reforms.
Often called the giant of Africa, Rianige, which is one of the world's biggest oil producers, has been an arena for corruption and instabilities. The recent terrorist attacked by Islamic militants, Haram Boko only casts doubts on the future of the country. As the SU's fifth largest supplier of oil, Mrs Tonclin and her government know the economic implications of the instabilities and corruption in Rianige.
Our two moles who were lying under the seats of President Dr Nathanjo and Mrs Tonclin, authoritatively informed Kata Kata about the closed door meeting between President and SU Secretary of State Aryhill Tonclin. Our moles told us that the President was taken aback, when Mrs Tonclin candidly told her host that there was a strong link between the growing insecurity caused by Islamist militants and the blatant corruption in his country.
“You mean corrupt elements in the country use militants to make the government ungovernable?” our moles overheard the President asking Mrs Tonclin.
“You could say that. More than that, Can you draw the line between the stealing of oil money, widespread poverty and the current insecurity?” The SU Secretary of State asked sarcastically.
Despite the enormous riches and boom from the oil money, Rianige is still the centre of corruption and mismanagement. The oil wealth has not been judiciously shared or managed. The growing naked inequality is everywhere.
"The most important task before you, is to create better opportunities for all Rianigens - north, south, east, west - every young boy and girl to have a chance to fulfil his or her God-given potential, As you can see, the northern part of your country where the Islamist Haram Boko group often operates is far less developed than the rest of the country. You have to do something about this.” Mrs Tonclin advised President Nathanjo.
“Wait, has it occurred to you that this country has been ruled by the Northerners for more than 35 years? Since the independence of this country, only two southerners / Christians have emerged as the Presidents of the country. The question now is, if the country was ruled almost always by the northerners, why didn’t they develop the north – their constituency? Is it my fault or that of other Southern President that the North is not fully developed? Should I be held responsible for the greed of others?” The president replied quietly.
Mrs Tonclin smiled mechanically. She insisted the future of the country lied on inclusiveness and zero tolerance to corruption.
As a Christian, President Nathanjo however, believed that the country’s woes could be solved through prayers. He invited Mrs Tonclin for an afternoon prayer in his Presidential Chapel.
“Those guys don’t target the churches here as well, do they?’ The guest asked.
During the service, which was attended by all members of his cabinet – both Christians and Moslems - the Chaplain urged the worshipers to swear “in the presence God or Allah if you like“ that they would fight against corruption with their might.
“You are kneeling in the presence of God, repeat before me that you will fight corruption with your blood” The priest begged.
According to Kata Kata moles who witnessed the service, Mrs Tonclin was left alone with the priest when the prayer ended.
