THE UNLAWFUL INFRINGEMENT ON MY COPYRIGHT BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA TO THE TUNE OF N20 TRILLION PER ANNUM: THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
My names are Inyang Rotimi Olayiwola. I am not a Lazy Nigerian Youth, I am only being defrauded, frustrated and ruined in no small amount by the Nigerian Government.
Precisely on the 6th day of March, 2019, the Federal Government of Nigeria, through the Vice President – Professor Yemi Osinbajo (S.A.N) made a clarion call through a national television broadcast, via the 9’oclock network news of the National Television Authority (NTA) to all Nigerians, to come up with the best of income generating strategies in the bid of financing the huge course of free healthcare for all Nigerian citizens.
Within the ambit of his national television broadcast, the Vice President lamented that the strong desire of the Federal Government to achieving this noble course is recurrently being financially constrained, elucidating further that the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) of Nigeria was greatly underfunded through the micro miniature of Federal Government Allocation and International Aid.
Hearing this, my undying Spirit of patriotism got ignited and I swung into the action of ruminating and excogitating series of ingeniously massive income generating strategies to the tune of N20 Trillion per annum, to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
To validate my authorship of this great work, I submitted the blueprint of this elegant, lucid and thought provoking massive annual income generating initiatives as required and requested, to the Nigerian Copyright Commission (N.C.C) for registration, on the 14th day of May, 2019.
After 28days of painstaking perusal of this annual massive income generating initiatives by the Nigerian Copyright Commission of the Federal Government of Nigeria, I was issued a Copyright Registration Certificate, with Registration Number LW4363, on the 11th day of June, 2019, in validation of my authorship of this copyrighted great work.
To my utter dismay, towards the late months of the year 2021, December to be precise, the President and Commander in Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces –Rtd. General Muhammadu Buhari, brazenly infringed on this said copyrighted work and used same without authorization. This was evident by the transformation of this ingenious copyrighted initiatives into series of bills; FINANCE ACT signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari on the 31st day of December, 2021, THE NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE AUTHORITY BILL 2021, among the rest, signed into law, by this very government, on the 19th day of May, 2022, and published in Punch National Newspaper on the 24th day of May, 2022. The publication was equally replicated in – The Independent National News Paper. The Sun National News Paper, Legit NG, The Cable News, to mention but just a few.
All these happened without a due recompense for my labour and ingenious creativity. I have all documentary evidences intact. I have written to the President, the Attorney General and the Director General Nigerian Copyright Commission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, but to no avail.
This is not my first sad experience; I have equally been intellectually defrauded by the Lagos State Government with FBN General Insurance of the F.B.N Holdings. I am the brain behind the concepts of Compulsory Private Building Insurance Scheme and Compulsory Health Insurance Scheme, used and published by the Lagos State Government in Punch, Tribune and Vanguard National Newspapers, towards the expansion of its income generating capacities.
Despite the thorough investigation and the establishment of the truth beyond every reasonable doubt by the Current Deputy Governor; His Excellency Kadri Obafemi Hamzat, from the Former Honorable Commissioner for Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations-Honorable OluseyeOladejo, of the Ambode’s Administration, who oversaw the agency (the Lagos State Safety Commission) who took up this conceptualized project of mine, pursuant to the revealing information I was given by the Former Honourable Commissioner of Finance – Mr. AkinyemiAshade Jeremiah via telephone conversation on the 21stday of September, 2017, The Lagos State Governmenthas not deemed it fit to honour and compensate me, apart from the Deputy Governor paying the University Tuition Fee of my daughter on a personal ground.
I had placed a demand of
N20 Billion on the Lagos State Government and FBN General Insurance of the F.B.N Holdings through the mediatory platform of the Lagos Multidoor Court House in the year 2018. The LASG surprisingly blamed the profitable use of my ingenious initiatives on the past administration, regardless of its awareness of the fact that government is a continuum.
I had selflessly and sacrificially explored various means of amicable settlement, both at the State and Federal level, but to no avail, hence this unavoidable option. This is very unfortunate. The Nigerian Youths are not lazy. Leadership is the problem of Nigeria. InyangRotimi Olayiwola, Lagos State, Nigeria.
