The total derivation from oil and gas in the two SE oil producing states added together is less than that of Ondo State. Nice!!!

I am sure if the SE should invest their land involved in this oil in Palm oil business they will get more money from it. N301m won't even fix common pipeline distroyed in a week.

So what are these guys doing to improve infrastructure and make their states attractive for investment

Lagos currently generates over N23bn monthly in IGR which will dwarf these revenues

I just love my Lagos

Ogun and Oyo also have the potential to generate huge IGRs. I think Ogun currently generates almost N3bn monthly

^^^But are you surprised? Some people will get heart attack and others sleepless nights if any core Igbo state were to get anything worthwhile from oil proceeds....hence the wuru-wuru to deny Ndigbo through the state creation of the late 60's.

This is just how the 'owners of Nigeria' and their southern partners like it.....thankyou very much wink, and it would be hard to change things now that the fickle minds of Igbos in these states have been poisoned by decades of lies and propaganda against Ndigbo of the old south east.

Why are the South Easterners fond of attaching themselves with the Niger Deltans? Your post smacks of an unwarranted jealousy of the ND's, rather than cast the blame on state creation in the 60's, the SE should devise new ways of generating revenue and stop leeching on the SS!

My brother frankly speaking lagos generates not more than kano or borno or anambra.
Before you shout blue murder let me explain , lagos is dependent of taxes paid by oil companies which mine their oil in niger delta , the taxes paid by banks owned by niger deltans , the taxes paid by telecom companies which make their money in the other 35 states of nigeria ,the sea port and whose major importers are igbos and other big companies owned by the ibrus, dangotes , isiaku rabiu , jim ovia, coscharis and co.

If Abacha or any other person had relocated these none yoruba companies some to abuja and some to port harcourt , lagos would have ended up a civil service state like ekiti and worse than borno and kano

^^^"...attaching themselves with the Niger Deltans?" undecided; can you explain what you mean better?

You do realise there are Igbos in Rivers and Delta states don't you?.....so where does the "jealousy" come in? You can't deduce from my post that all i'm asking for is fairness and no underhand dealings to undermine anyone just because you don't like them?

You reckon it's Igbos that are preventing the oil producing states of the south south from receiving at least 50% derivation (hence the 'jealousy' accusation)?; if so, can you provide links or quotes where any Igbo(s) has said that the 13% they already receive is enough for them, and that they don't deserve a better deal.

If anything, it's the tone of YOUR post that smacks of pettiness, hatred and bottled-up anger towards Ndigbo.....it's reeking of it mate; what exactly do you mean by the south east "leeching" on the south souths' resources, and how does said 'leeching' compare with that done by other ethnicities over the decades?

Finally, can you let us know your ethnicity as this may help explain your post a little better.

^^^If you took the pains to read my post well, you'd have noticed i was responding to the dude that was saying it's "nice' that Ondo state is receiving more than Imo and Abia combined. Shouldn't you have tried to find out from him what exactly he meant by the "nice" comment?; anyhow you look at it, that comment was the precursor to any "tribe" comments on this thread.

You're being naive at best if you think critical sectors of our economic life as a nation have not been guided by 'tribal' considerations over the decades.

I don't like sounding pessimistic about issues in our life as a nation (trust me), but the reality that stares us in the face is that Nigeria has not been a country run on 'fairness' and 'justice', and any analysis of our past is bound reflect this fact.

Cheers. smiley

PS- i never said anywhere that i'd like Igbos to be grouped with the major oil producing states; rather i've said that any oil producing area that is Igbo should be place (as commonsense would dictate) in an 'Igbo' state.....not splitting whole communities in two just so you can deny an Igbo state (like Imo for instance) better derivation.

Re: The Top Oil Producing States. Based On Revenue. by docokwy(m): 3:19am On Nov 26, 2012
A lot of money is being deducted from Abia, being a highly indebted state, hence the lower amount. And I thought Cross Rivers is no longer an oil-producing state?
This sounds wuru-wuru to me.

Point of correction:There are no Igbos in the Niger Delta ,the people you classify as Igbos are simply distinct neighboring tribes that has been acculturated due to long time inter marriages,trade and cultural exchange etc .Go back to your people let them tell you the truth, because you'll be making the same mistake all over again as long as they continue to lie to you abt your neighbors in the Niger Delta.

What you wrote about Ondo State on Offshore\Onshore is applicable to other states except Abia and Imo State. I really do not join issues with nonsensical junks such as the original post because it is fraudulent as Nigeria.

Anybody who does not understand the zeal behind the police action against eastern region in 1967, boundary adjustment of 1976 and the imbecilic polity of offshore\onshore dichotomy is an irredeemable fool. The only truth will surface when Nigeria disintegrates.

This is senselessness at its peak.

Is there any law that mandates that a Bank or Oil company should have its headquarters in Lagos?

WHo forced them to put their headquarters in Lagos State? Are they locating their headquarters there because they love Lagos or did anyone beg them to locate it there?There must be an advantage for the bank owners which they derive to make them insist on putting the headquarters in Lagos instead of Nnewi. Or is there a FG directive that said Diamond Bank cant have its head quarter in Arochukwu, or Fidelity in Ahiazu Mbaise?

Unity Bank owned by Northerners does not have their Headquarter in lagos, they have it in the North. SO there is no one compelling anyone to locate his headquarter in Lagos

Why cant the Igbo importers import their whatever through Jigawa or Ebonyi? So if Abacha, Why not ask Abacha to relocate Atlantic ocean to Owerri and make a port for Igbo importers to use?
