General Joshua Dogonyaro And The Disappearing Power Clan

Before his death on May 13, 2021, the history of General Joshua Dogonyaro, a hero and a genuine person who had served his father’ s land and had kept a good history.

Dogonyaro was said to have been born in Van, Plateau State, though a native of Taro in the Langtang North local government area in Plateau State, on September 12, 1940, before Nigeria gained independence.

He had his early education at boys’ secondary school in the Gindiri plateau and later listed in the Nigeria army in 1964.

Apart from that, he also attended the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies in Kuru Jos and obtained a national institute degree. With advancement in his career, he became chief instructor at the race training school, NA, in 1970. He was promoted to the rank of commanding officer in 1972 and 1974.

Seeing that this wasn’ t enough, he was appointed as principal staff officer at the headquarter of the NA.

In the Nigerian armour army corps in 1976- 1977, his rank gradually increased till his retirement.

Dogonyaro’ s Involvement In The 12 June 1993 Annulment Of The Presidential Election

Before the annaument made by IBB, General Joshua Dogoyaro was already a member of the dreaded Lantang Mafia in the Nigerian Military Circle. They were the set of Nigerian military personnel who were powerful in government among the Jos military citizens and indigenous members prior to the 1985 coup that dismantled General Mohammed Buhari’ s regime. As a result, Lieutenant General Joshua Dogoyaro was said to be among the top military that annulled the 12 June 1993 resident election in compliance with IBB.

General Joshua Dogonyaro And The Disappearing Power Clan

Meanwhile, Dogoyaro’ s death on May 13th, 2021, left a lot of questions in the minds of those who truly understand his powers and existence, particularly all of his power clan around IBB was a key displayer for both IBB and Abacha’ s politics, on how Abacha had manipulated him and other IBB boys who have played the game of partiality in Nigerian politics, mostly when it arises to elections, though the real act of his events have been said in collaboration on how he contributed to the annaument of the election.

Unlike the Abacha camp members who went on oputa panel to like everything before the sky, as well as using an evident in a written book to accomplish this against members of the IBB, they have kept their contention in the camp despite the power claims among each other. It hasn’ t been easily outspoken like the former Major Debo Basorun, or even the most intellectual of them who have served in the system but draw an act of enemity between the General as a whole right in secret.

In this category is General John Shagaya, who had experienced a conversion from a strickly military officer to a politician, becoming a senator, but died earlier in 2018 during his involvement in reconciling the division between northern and southern Nigerians. While the most mysterious person among them is General David Mark, a man who has a great record in the history of Nigerian politics, holding a variety of positions that lasted him 20 years in office, of which 8 were as the Senate president, and hasn’ t for once brought improvement either to Nigerians or to his people.

One of the annoying facts about his leadership was the record of an unsuccessful penetration into the hearts of those who elected him, meaning he didn’ t stick to the development of the country or carry out his responsibility to the judiciary as he was supposed to, rather he claimed to say that he empowered few of those who had assisted him in getting higher in politics and public sectors, and as such, this hadn’ t been put into his critics as well.

Finally, they landed the General, who, despite having contributed to the designation of power, has not spoken against preachers or political personnel; rather, he has jokingly spoken of his local house in Kano, which he used as his government house and who is popularly known as General Halilu Akilu.

Why Nigerians Never Recorded Success During The Military Regime

Just as it is even today in Nigerian political leadership, the military regime remains an act of claiming power rather than displaying their responsibility.

Unlike IBB, who has advanced more often than others and could have brought the country into a joyful and exciting country through the uniqueness of human affairs, the position ended up as a fight for power, just as it has been said by Prof Elaiwu, ” the military came in as political physicians but ended up as political patients requiring greater dosages of the medicinal prescription in which they have come to serve the politician. “

Meanwhile, he was right in his statement and that is why Good Luck Jonathan can’ t withstand them even with his power as the president, especially dealing with the two remaining as Buhari and IBB.
