And the oil blocks in the South South are given to Fulani elites free of charge while the owners of the land languish in poverty

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.

You mean the state should create nnpc zonal office? That is outside their power .

It's outside their power, that's well known.

Every people have a constitutional and human rights to agitate for the betterment of their lives. In this case, especially as a host community. It doesn't make sense that mango should grow in my compound, while the whole community shares in the mango I'm left with sweeping out the falling leaves.

But...

If my own son cannot put my compound in order, should I expect my neighbour son to sweep?

The only reason I am happy with this your rely to the young man is that it shows that you guys know what you're doing.

The young man you quoted never mentioned the dullard, as a matter of fact, he was implying all the nations leaders... The only phrase that qualifies the dullard in his post was the "funding Fulani terrorists". Guilty conscience got a better part of you and you went on a cursing spree. Well I've taken the screen shot as proof that you guys know right from wrong and that you know what you're doing.

You could make it your screensaver for all I care.

I didn't stutter.

You half-educated people make the country difficult for everybody.

Yesterday one of your ilk was celebrating power outage and I won't be surprised if you were too.

Akpabio is a senator, he once governed Akwa Ibom. If he , more than anyone is silent on such an issue and your ilk think this should be the focus of the president at the moment then one can conclude you are all jesters

I feel you. What you may not know is that the state has been agitating for these issues: creation of nnpc and dpr zonal office, relocation of exxon mobil hdqtrs to the state for too long, though through peaceful means; but the statusquo remained the same. Nigeria unfortunately only understand violence and I don't support violence.

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

Because 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 these all could just dry up tomorrow.

I'm tired of the inhuman treatment


Bro he should understand that the FG didn't start 2years ago. When Jonathan was the President I thought SS governors should have taken advantage but NO they didn't.
Again, I think we don't support ourselves. Gov. Attah fought for about 25% but we were given 13%derivation. The next Govt.was supposed to ask for all these but no they didn't.
The money they were receiving blinded their eyes.

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.
His name is Bolu. That is how they think in that part of NIgeria.

He claims that because buhari is not from the ND, it is not his Job to correct the anomaly, and yet he wants the ND to allow their oil to be utilized by a non-Niger Delta president.

If militants start, i am sure his big mouth will call them enemies of state. He wants the Niger delta to share their oil with rest of Nigeria while they are bereft of proper federal reforms because buhari is not from there.

Anyway, i don't care before some of the ''we niger delta'' folks start accusing me of trying to steal their oil.

The main reason why some lazy bones brink and break down when they hear things like national conference, fiscal federalism, restructuring, reform or the ultimate succession. Because they know that any above mentioned will bring what belong to the people back to the people.. The fear alone is bigger then underdevelopment of the country. In other words they prefer the nation crisis then help Nigeria develop. Let everybody work from his village and develop it. If you build road, railway, airport, seaport etc in Lagos, Kano do same in Delta and Imo.. By then if I want to move from point A to point B my reason is Clear enough.
Nigeria will never have peace and progress until the right things are done.

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.

I laugh when people make this type of statement. My brother, it seems u dont know how Nigeria is structured. See, the current system is structured in a way that northerners dominate the national assembly. The north controls this country bro.

In the south, we have problem with collective decision becus the west is divided into two loyalties.. one loyalty to the northern political class and the second loyalty to the southern interest. Now, the north keeps winning in issues like establishments and creation of FG projects becus they have the major say.

U cant wake up one morning and run a FG project just like that. It needs necessary procedures before it can be actualized. And the national assembly plays great role in this. Not even the president finds it easy to get this done. The country has been structured to favor the north forever. My only sadness is that with the obvious favorism to the north, the region is still has majority of the poor citizens.

Nigeria is a one chance project. I can bet u with anything, if this country wasnt structured this way, I mean this unitary federalism, southern Nigeria would have go far. It is unfair. The southern Nigeria is in big mess becus the west which is a major player in the country has two loyalties.

Look at almost all the security institutions are located in the north, even the capital of Nigeria is a northern project. Not even the entire senators from south south can easily get projects approved for the south. North has more local govt which is the bane of Nigeria politics. There is no hope except by serious force becus northern elites know they av nothing to offer outside the Nigeria project.

Complete and utter lie and what divisionists say to justify years of waste.

Are the oil companies in the North?

Please point to the HQ of any of the oil companies sited in the North.

The likes of Akpabio are more interested in what they can make from the senate than even the request for federal presence.

If it is to go to Saraki's trial they would all be making a single file.

Has the Twitter senator ever even bothered to stake a claim for siting any major development in the SS?

How many times have you heard even Wike or Okowa request for these things.

It is easier for them to buy guns for the thugs .

I never said anything about oil company HQ in the north. I am not here to argue with u. We all know the from north to east, Nigeria has bad leaders. We are talking about projects by FG. I am telling u that it passes thru many rigorous processes that favour northern region more. Bro, this one no be sentiment. Many things dey happen wey we no dey hear. This govt said all these in the open, u can imagine what he can say when he is not with the camera.

The point is that most southern senators know that their hands are tied down. Talking will not change anything. At least i av watched some south east senators lament over bad federal roads many times during senate session but nothing has been done. U need to understand that these southern leaders know too well that the system is not in their favor, so they have to play to their own interest.

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.
GMB hired 80% of PDP members to run the country now, what has changed?
GMB has been in corridor of power for over 40 yrs. His involvement in the military coups, he was head of state, he was minster of petroluem, he was PTF chairman and Abacha was his boss. Abacha started the export of Naija crude for refining. Abacha awarded TAM of refineries to a finishing company when GMB was heading PTF.
