Daniel will enter the news business in an ambitious way with the launch of COMPASS media outfit that will include newspapers, radio and television broadcasting.
Last year, the controversial governor of Ogun State was embroiled in an iron rod corruption scandal as well as questionable acquisition of choice real estate in the UK.
A source who is very close to Daniel said the governor's objective is to launch a media empire that would eclipse other media outfits owned by such former state governors as Orji Uzor Kalu of Abia and Bolaji Tinubu of Lagos.

ATIKU/OBASANJO FEUD: AS DAN ETETE SEALS NEW JV CAMPAIGN DEAL
Senior Fyneface - senior_fyneface@yahoo.com - March 07, 2007
When Chief Dan Etete in 1996 introduced what he described as the ‘new deal', he meant to put a stop to foreign monopoly in the management of joint venture partnership between the federal government and the foreign oil companies.
...
Also during the crushing fuel crisis of 1997, when Gen Buba Marwa (then governor of Lagos state) urged Etete to tell the Nigerian people the cause of the crisis, Chief Etete replied that "Marwa (a governor) was being very childish in making those remarks".
...
So to say that Chief Dan Etete's former ‘new deal' flopped completely because the man lacked respect for constituted authourities is an understatement.
...
Anyway, all the above cases which represent a speck of his recklessness, were in Dan Etete's former ‘new deal'.Now the Yenagoa-born fugitive (on self-exile) has recently struck a fresh ‘new deal' in the ongoing feud between the two topmost citizens of this country.
In what looks like a condition for his asylum back to Nigeria , Etete accepted to be used as a willing tool in the ongoing smear campaign against Vice President Atiku Abubakar.Whosoever advised the Presidency to employ Etete, should be sacked immediately from the smear campaign team because that strategy has messed up more things in the president's campaign than it set out to achieve.
The use of Etete and his unmannered delivery of abuses and threats rather than explanation or disclosure of fresh issues as cooked by his employer does not compensate for the huge amount of money spent on him in the last few months that he was camped at the Aguda House, where he lived with all the goodies of a serving federal government executive.
Obviously, the President must have changed his mind as usual, from an earlier promise to the Yenagoa-born fugitive that he (Etete) will be the next governor of Bayelsa state come 2007.In this particular case of use and dump tactics, nobody can blame Obasanjo for not living up to the terms of the deal because Etete actually did a very bad job in his outing against the vice president, including his recent attempts (in cooperation) with the presidency to cage the NDDC strongman Timi Alaibe and stop him from running for the governorship race.
...
Chief Dan Etete admitted publicly in his AIT smear campaign that, as Minister of Petroleum Resources, he allocated the said oil blocs to himself and his company.It is on record also that he was certified as a conduit to siphon over $5billion out of the Nigerian treasury during the Abacha era.As Petroleum Minister, he supervised the collapse of Nigerian refineries and the importation of foul - smelling toxic fuel into the country.He has been a refugee in France for seven years running away from the long hands of the law.Nigerians are not fools, for the President to conscript a man with criminal records, a man that lacks integrity and credibility to make poorly-packaged completely false allegations against a duly elected official just because he has been promised to be installed as the next governor of Bayelsa state is an obvious indication that the entire feud between Obasanjo and Atiku has always been based on concoctions rather than facts.It is even stranger that Mr. Etete was using the same facts he had used to attack both the President and the Vice President in an earlier interview published by the Insider Magazine edition of March 10th 2003.What has happened from then to now, for Etete to slant the facts against Atiku only?Maybe the anti-Atiku team failed to realize that Nigeria has gone past the age when the citizens hear or read about issues and just throw it away.As was revealed by the Atiku campaign camp, Chief Etete and his sponsors should go and read the Insider Magazine of March 10 2003 and UAS Africa advertorial by Etete himself and then compare the changed tune in the orchestra.
...
As was aptly captured by the Vice President's camp, "When the big masquerade behind Etete is courageous enough to come out, the Vice President will respond".Whosoever is promising Etete that he will be installed as the next governor of Bayelsa State must be making a great mistake because I know my Bayelsa people very well.The average Bayelsa politician is not a coward and cannot be manipulated from Abuja . If Dan Etete wants to be the next governor of Bayelsa State , which in my view is a genuine aspiration as an Ijawman of the Yenagoa stock, he should go back and appeal for votes from his community, local government before the state level.He can win elections if he convinces his people that he now has all it takes to take Bayelsa state out of the current poverty and penury rather than being housed in Aguda House by the Presidency.
SENIOR FYNEFACE WRITES FROM PORT HARCOURT

Dan Etete, a former Nigerian oil minister, is to stand trial in France for money laundering. The trial is a result of investigations into suspected kickbacks paid by major oil companies (including France's Elf-Aquitaine - now part of Total - and Canada's Addax Petroleum) for drilling rights in Nigeria. Etete served between 1993 and 1998 under the regime of the late Sani Abacha, and now lives in England. Between 1999 and 2000, he purchased several luxury properties in France, with a total value of 15 million euros, and investigators suspect that he paid for them with the proceeds of bribery. No trial date has yet been set.
