The founder and publisher of Sahara Reporters Omoyele Sowore has reacted to reports that he got a $5million mansion located in Atherton, California, from the APC. Reacting to the report which claimed that the mansion is one of the many promises made to Sowore by APC and has…
“…Everything a modern home should have like swimming pool; grand hall, with 15-foot ceilings and marble floors, ideal for dancing; French doors opening to the veranda; dining room with a rouge royale marble fireplace; stained glass windows and a crystal 12-branch chandelier; Red-carpeted double mahogany stairway, complemented by a foliate motif stained glass window on the landing; Wrap-around veranda available for seasonal use and Ample covered or outdoor parking.
…Sowore accused the presidency of being behind the story and asked president Jonathan to show the world proof that he was given a mansion by APC. See his reaction as posted on SR after the cut
By Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters
In the latest of many attempts at blackmailing SaharaReporters into silence, a new (what else?) website has concocted the story that the All Progressives Congress (APC) bought and gave me a mansion located in Atherton, California.
Everyone around the world knows that Nigerian governments since 2006 have been trying to shut down or shut up SaharaReporters. Technical efforts to shut us down occur almost every week. Efforts to shut us up are no less prevalent, and they include blackmail from various directions.
The Atherton mansion claim, which was apparently written by some handlers of President Goodluck Jonathan, followed renewed attacks on the site infrastructure during the summer. The well-oiled and well-heeled team sent bots after our server and crippled it for several days. Shortly after we restored our services, that criminal team went on Facebook to create several fake fan pages in our name.  It was only three weeks ago that we succeeded in getting Facebook to take down the biggest of those fan pages; by that time, it had garnered over 14,000 likes.
In this latest attempt, Mr. Jonathan’s hit squad seems to have gone berserk over an online poll conducted by SaharaReporters, which showed that he would be defeated by 75% if retired General Muhammad Buhari, was pitched against him in the 2015 general election.
 
Following Mr. Jonathan’s declaration of intent earlier this week, our team of reporters also reported that a team affiliated with the Nigerian ruler refused to pay several persons who had been hired to pose as supporters during his presidential declaration in Abuja. The presidency seems widely embarrassed at the report that hordes of those in attendance at what was supposed to be a massively-supported declaration had in fact been hoodwinked by his Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN).
These reports and many others unveil the government as tactless, clueless and corrupt, but that is only because it is tactless, clueless and corrupt.  They are not manufactured, and unlike some others, we have refused to be bought off the task of reporting what we know.
The truth is that my team and I are beyond bribery machineries.  Mr. Jonathan’s foot soldiers, who have repeatedly been sent to meet with us individually with the promise of huge bribes can attest to this.  For those amazed by the latest gossip about the $5m mansion bribe in the United States, I challenge the writers to publicly provide the verifiable address of the mansion in Atherton.  They should also go ahead and publish the real estate documents that are associated with the property, so that we can put the matter in the hands of the law-enforcement authorities.
But we all know the truth: desperation.
It is desperation that is responsible for the concoction of this $5 million mansion story, the objective of which is to fool the simple-minded.  And we understand: the 2015 elections are approaching.  Time to buy off—or discourage—critics and unfavorable reporting.
