Despite Producing Most Oil, Akwa Ibom Has No NNPC, DPR Offices - Governor Udom by Blue3k2: 5:31pm On Jan 03
Akwa Ibom Governor, Udom Emmanuel, has accused the federal government of neglecting the state.

Mr. Emmanuel said the state, despite being the largest producer of oil in the country, has not seen many development projects from the federal government for years.

The governor was speaking on Tuesday during a prayer meeting organised by the state government in Uyo to usher in the New Year.

“We are the largest producer of oil in this country,” Governor Emmanuel said. “I want to challenge the minister of petroleum resources, let them show us a kiosk that is NNPC office in Akwa Ibom, let them show us a kiosk that is the DPR office in Akwa Ibom.

“Let them show us even one reservoir that they say is a petroleum depot in Akwa Ibom,” he said to the cheering of the crowd which included pastors, traditional rulers, politicians and a former governor of the state, Godswill Akpabio, who is the Senate Minority Leader.


The governor said the state government was building a deep seaport in the state which, when completed, will benefit not only Nigeria but other countries as well in the Gulf of Guinea.

He said it was unfortunate that the federal government was not giving the state the needed support for the project.

“We don’t have a choice; as a people that is why we launch our ‘dakkada’ campaign – we say we must rise up to the faith of our greatness as a people.

“We can’t wait for the federal government, we must take our destiny in our hands. We must work for our people. We must serve our people,” Mr. Emmanuel said.

The governor said the federal government could at least reward the Akwa Ibom people for being peaceful.

“Those who are peace-loving also deserve to be rewarded.

“Let the federal government this year look at the infrastructure in Akwa Ibom. We need a road from Calabar to Ikot Ekpene, to Aba and up to Lagos. We need a railway line because the loan that we collected from China to develop railway lines in Nigeria, the repayment of that loan will also come from resources out of Akwa Ibom. So, we also need a rail line that will run throughout coastline.

The governor said despite the lack of federal support, Akwa Ibom, through the effort of the state government, was enjoying a constant supply of electric power.


“Akwa Ibom is God’s own project,” he said. “God is our help in ages past.”

He's asking for rail line that's already planned for. The FG just needs to find funds for coastal project as Amaechi stated. He should have added ALSCON to list since it's the FG stalling the sale of plant. That would be big boast to Akwa Ibom economy and would not cost anybody a dime.

Is the governor asking for new highway or fixing current? I dont kmow about a road that links Calabar to Ikot Ekpene, to Aba to Lagos. It's not unreasonable request the minority leader should bring it up at Senate. The petrol depot would be cool he should donate land and ask then to do it. Governor Emanuel has met up with petroleum minister plenty of times.

Modern-day slavery is when someone is depriving you of what is rightfully yours


The exact case between the Niger Delta and FG and all petroleum agencies operating in Nigeria

Take for instance
The security agencies in Nigeria are predominantly northerners and almost all the headquarters are situated in the north
Many other things too numerous to mention

Why is it that same is not applicable in the oil sector undecided

Mention one oil company in Nigeria that doesn't operate in the Niger Delta, then why is it that none of them have their headquarters in the Niger Delta.

The people of the Niger Delta are meted with so many unthinkable harsh conditions of living but all is being over looked because none of the oil well owners are affected

Honestly sometimes when I think of how much is made from the Niger Delta daily cry my heart bleeds

I mean just imagine what will befall the Niger Delta in the next 100 years time when all the crude is completely sucked beneath angry

I wish all the crude would just dry up tomorrow.

I'm tired of the inhuman treatment

Texas is Americas oil capital and there in Houston you have all oil companies HQ from Exxon to chevron, Marathon oil, BP America HQ etc. There is a place called Energy Corridor in Houston, it has over 5,000 oil companies and oil contractors. Why is it different In Nigeria[size=12pt][/size] ?

Good point,to be fair enough if northern Nigeria was the oil base,they would not allow this marginalisation in terms of development and project as it is with south south.

Anyway Delta and Bayelsa produce more oil than Akwa Ibom

They will be right.

Jonathan was too busy with boko haram and trying to please northerners, he didn't remember the Niger Delta

What did GEJ and Diezani do about this in their 5 years reign?

Where are the 3 Senators from Akwa Ibom?

Where are the Niger Delta lawmakers especially Senator Bruce?

If the son of the soil couldn't do it, why should anyone blame others leaders who are not from the country?

Niger Deltans are the biggest enemies of themselves.

This comment is silly to me and i wonder how a sane person can make it. I'm not sure you know the "Federal government of Nigeria" is a corporation sole irrepective of the person or party currently in office, it is an action of the FG.


Please seek wisdom before you make comments.

Shut up!

So you don't see anything wrong in a party being in party for 16 years, even with a son of the soil as the President for five years, without giving what is due to the state that produces the largest oil for the country?

Your comment reek of insincerity.

30 years after its creation inclusive of which a leader from south-south was in power for close to 6 years. None thought it necessary to create an NNPC post. Not even Akpabio, who is a member of the senate thought it necessary.

Bear in mind, Akpabio has served 10 going to 11 years as either governor or senator.

Yet it is Buhari who came in 2 years ago that caused all the world ills.

I wish you what you wish him.

True.
Why can there be NNPC in Akwa Ibom when the Parasitic Northern govys has mostly been running the country to satisfy their interests?

I try to imagine a situation where groundnut or tomatoes from the North were the sources of revenue sustaining Nigeria, and wonder if the Northerners will concede to Southern states with more local govts receiving more revenues from the proceeds of sales of Northern products.
Am also wondering if the Northerners will stomach a situation where their states producing crops that sustains the economy of the country do not have factories or storage facilities for the produces while there are these factories in the south.
Am also trying to picture where a southern will Head a Ministry or parastal of which oversees a major revenue generating product of the North.
I also wonder if Nigeria would still be existing as one country if Oil was majorly in the north and the north was sustaining the country.

I dare say all the above is impossible.

Nigeria is existing on a parasitic relationship where the north is depending on and exploiting the south.
Before the advent of oil, the North was self sufficient from sale of groundnut. While there were calls for Fedetalism, the North insisted and pushed for Regional govt because it didn't want to share its revenue with other regions. That's why the country was on Regional basis then.
As soon as Oil was discovered, the North fhru Ahmadu Bello canvassed for Federalism and pushed it on Tafawa Balewa who was the President then.
The same North who didn't want anything to do with Federalism were the ones insisting on Federalism because they envisage they would lose out on oil proceeds with the practice of regional govts.
I am 500% sure that the very day oil ceases in Niger Delta or there is discovery of oil in large quantities in the North, the Northern elites will push for Regional govt.
The North & South relationship is unfairly parasitic with the North being in the relationship on selfish basis.
