Usani Usani Frustrate my effort to get 6 billion Naira worth of Contract – Koko Dan

In 2018, Koko Dan, an indigenous expert, encountered unexpected challenges in his quest to secure a 6 Billion Naira job overseeing the management of surveillance drones. The bid, which required high-level recommendations from two Generals, a financial commitment of one million US dollars, and a 10-minute drone flying test, proved to be a complex process.
Dan, who met all the stringent requirements and got shortlisted, received initial support from prominent figures like Abba Kyari and Babagana Kingibe. The latter were pleased that an indigenous candidate possessed the necessary expertise for the job. However, a turn of events occurred when the then Minister from Dan’s state, Cross River, Usani Uguru Usani, condemned him during an opinion session with Kyari and Kingibe.
It was revealed that Usani, despite Dan’s prior support for the APC and the innovative contributions to the party in Cross River, gave a negative recommendation. Later, Dan learned that Usani’s motive was rooted in political rivalry, as he feared Dan would use the money to support Owan Enoh against him.
The job, ultimately awarded to an Israeli company, left Dan disappointed. Six months later, Usani reached out to apologize, admitting that his recommendation was fueled by personal concerns. Despite the setback, Dan expressed forgiveness and emphasized the importance of moving forward positively.
Dan’s experience sheds light on the challenges faced by indigenous individuals pursuing opportunities, as personal and political factors can overshadow professional merit.
