To Protect GEJ! Annkio Briggs call on Niger Delta & Ndi-Igbo to break away!
NIGER DELTA OCCUPY NIGER DELTA RESOURCES
After a crucial general meeting held on Friday January 13, 2012 and attended by Chiefs, elders, women, youths and stakeholders of the Niger Delta in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, we are constrained to make our position known on recent and ongoing developments in our country.
We have noted the unfolding issues regarding the removal of subsidy on fuel and the rambunctious attitude of the North towards President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
Fellow Nigerians, let us not forget that in the promise of keeping this country under the banner of One Nigeria, the Niger Delta people have usurped our goodwill and resources through the following:
•Neglect of our people politically and economically
•Sacrifice of our resources to Nigeria
•The long term and ongoing destruction of our environment
•The killings of our people
•The attacks and destruction of and on our communities
•The persistent opposition to the Goodluck Ebele Jonathan presidency, which has translated into high level violence as well as the ongoing killing of innocent Nigerians, particularly of Igbo origin among others.
We the long suffering, neglected, abused, and marginalized people of the Niger Delta find it very necessary at this point, after much consultation and analysis, to call our people to come back home.
For our survival, home is where we will feel safe and be better and more prepared to defend ourselves in the face of the level of neglect and abandonment of our region and our people after more than 50 years of providing for the country or entrapment designed by Lord Lugard for the benefits of others and to the detriment of our region, people and future.
We hereby call on all Niger Delta citizens and all oil-producing states and people to call the Federal Government and the Oil Companies in their enclave that the Oil and Gas and all other natural resources found or to be found in our land, creeks, water, mangroves and swamps belong to the peoples of the Niger Delta and other oil producing states.
Therefore, we consider the ongoing devastation of our land and waters as a serious violation of our Human Rights and Environment.
We also call on the Federal Government and the oil producing companies to take note of our resolve to resist the ongoing exploration and exploitation of oil and gas in our region. The activities of the Joint Venture between the Federal Government and the International Oil Companies are a violation of our birthright and economic rights.
We have also resolved to declare and call for
NIGER DELTANS OCCUPY NIGER DELTA RESOURCES (NDONDR).
We hereby peacefully insist on taking our resources back by all and any legal means available to us, nationally and internationally. It is our absolute right to reclaim our land, water, mangroves, swamps and creeks from the strange hands that have long held them hostage.
This clarion call is to all Niger Delta people who believe that the natural resources on their land is given to them by God Almighty.
Therefore, we have as of this date, 15th of January 2012, started the occupation of all our states and resources and call on all Niger Delta people to converge in protest to occupy our land, water, swamps, mangroves and creeks to protect our God-given resources.
After watching the events in reminiscence of the past since Independence to date (1960-2012), we are convinced that without this action we will have nothing for our future, our children and their children’s future.
This step is necessary as it is the only one left for the Niger Delta people otherwise we are condemning our nationalities and people to self-imposed slavery and destruction.
President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan or Niger Delta people will not be slaves to Nigeria that has survived on injustice, mismanagement, corruption and massive fraud.
We the Ijaw and Niger Delta people are not prepared to be blackmailed and terrorized into a corner because of our God-given oil and gas.
We support the withdrawal of fuel subsidy even though as usual in the creeks and swamps we end up paying the highest price. We are opposed to and will continue to fight against mismanagement and corruption in Nigeria.
But having watched the goings on against the person of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, an Ijaw and Niger Delta son, over the past one week in the name of "PROTEST AGAINST SUBSIDY", it has become crystal clear to our people that we are neither wanted or needed as equals in this country that is made by Lord Lugard. We therefore have had enough of the distasteful, shameful and offensive open ridicule of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in the world and Nigeria media, instigated openly by self-proclaimed leaders, elders, intellectuals and men of different faith.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Niger Delta and all the resources found in the Niger Delta belong to Niger Delta people. All resources found in any other region of Nigeria belong to the people of such region.
We call on all our Niger Delta peoples, for the sake of our future, to look to our nearest neighbours, the Igbos, for immediate and strong alliance to enable the Niger Delta nations and the Igbo nation to face the obvious change that will come to Nigeria, in strength, justice, brotherhood and truth.
IF JONATHAN, A NIGER DELTA SON IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO GOVERN NIGERIA, THE OIL IN HIS NIGER DELTA IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR NIGERIA.
IF THE NIGER DELTA PEOPLE ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO BE PART OF GOOD GOVERNANCE IN NIGERIA, THEN OUR OIL AND GAS OF THE NIGER DELTA PEOPLE IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR NIGERIA.
PRESIDENT, AGAPE BIRTHRIGHTS and
CONVENER, NIGER DELTA OCCUPY NIGER DELTA RESOURCES

Briggs. . .is that her name? Briggs' call is misplaced and very short sighted. I am not sure the Igbos or any group in East for that matter and who is familiar with what is going on in Southern Cameroon is ready for a conflict or act of rebellion with Nigerian Govt. It's just another shout into the void!

WHAT we need now is 1 AK47, IRPG, 1GPMG for evrey youth in the Niger Delta. Then we give all Northerner 24hrs to leave our land or face death. It is very easy thing to do. I dont know why we delay this thing.It inevitable. Northerner must go let us rule ourselves. Whatever the disadvantage we have, we will manage it and come out strongly as brothers. THE WOMAN IS A REAR GEM, A WOMAN THAT WE ARE PROUD OF, IF YOU DONT LIKE HER, PLS HUG THE NEAREST TRANSFORMER

Nigeria is one of the greatest mistakes ever made on this earth by man. It is man that will correct it.
However, independence can be achieved without violence. We can start by educating our youths on creativity, productivity, self reliant, self determination and the need for independence.
Truth is, Nigeria has no future: the internal colonialist with special reference to the Jihardists, will never stop unless they are stopped.
Can we ever have a National idealogy? Can we ever come to agreement? Will Nigeria ever be one?

Is still Annkio Briggs still walking around as a free person, she should have been arrested and put in jail already.

You should be forced to wear a “shame on you” t-shirt for owning up to this irresponsible comment. I guess you understand what democracy is all about and mere statements or wishes do not constitute treason.
@Annkio. The only thing I disagreed with Madam Briggs is wide reference to Niger Delta. I have no iota of intentions to assume the same nationality with certain peeps that walk in the so-called Niger Delta.
|Re: Annkio Briggs Call On Niger Delta & Ndi-igbo To Break Away! by kpogede77: 3:21pm On Feb 23, 2012|

I can see fear with no diagnosis owners want their food back what a hell
|Re: Annkio Briggs Call On Niger Delta & Ndi-igbo To Break Away! by nduchucks: 4:22pm On Feb 23, 2012|
You, of all people should know that you cannot hide under the guise of democracy and freedom of speech, while announcing to the world that your country should be thrown into chaos and war which would result into the killing of thousands, if not millions of your citizens.
There is nothing democratic about attempting to incite violence, you should be jailed if you go to a packed theatre and yell, Fire!! Madam should be locked up, shikena.
|Re: Annkio Briggs Call On Niger Delta & Ndi-igbo To Break Away! by 9jaIhail(m): 4:24pm On Feb 23, 2012|
What the phuck are you talking about? arrest her because she pleaded that the banana should be remove out from your mouth? is better you guys wake up now and start planting granut in large quantity because oil money will soon be a history.
|Re: Annkio Briggs Call On Niger Delta & Ndi-igbo To Break Away! by OneNaira6: 5:22pm On Feb 23, 2012|
I support her and everything she said.
Such true words spoken in one lecture
Well done madam. Well done
|Re: Annkio Briggs Call On Niger Delta & Ndi-igbo To Break Away! by Eziachi: 5:29pm On Feb 23, 2012|
I wish Madam Briggs and her ambition, all the best and I hope that she and her people succeeds but please she should left Igbos/Biafran people out of her ambition of a new united country that will involved Ijaws and Igbos.
No chance in abyss for that.
Ijaw alone is big enough to be on their own as many nations in the world are less than a million people. Again may she succeeds without us, we are just happy to be peaceful neighbours.
|Re: Annkio Briggs Call On Niger Delta & Ndi-igbo To Break Away! by Eziachi: 5:34pm On Feb 23, 2012|
ndu_chucks:Sorry Sir, the word divorce is not the same as war or chaos. The use of fear as a weapon of keeping Nigeria one for the benefits of its owners/reapers doesn't work anymore. Even the most skeptic are wising up at last.
|Re: Annkio Briggs Call On Niger Delta & Ndi-igbo To Break Away! by Yeske2(m): 5:48pm On Feb 23, 2012|
Ijaws learning their mistakes now, first it was Asari Dokubo and now Ms Briggs. Ok let's see how it all unfolds.
**Tapping my fingers on the table **
|Re: Annkio Briggs Call On Niger Delta & Ndi-igbo To Break Away! by youngmonie: 7:24pm On Feb 23, 2012|
I still haVent found an answer, "IF THE WASNT OIL IN THE NIGER DELTA WOULD THE THEN MILITARY GOVERNMENT HAVE ALLOWED IGBOS TO FORM BAIFRA?"
|Re: Annkio Briggs Call On Niger Delta & Ndi-igbo To Break Away! by nduchucks: 7:40pm On Feb 23, 2012|
I understand your biases since you are a civil war veteran who should be respected for his services. But I have news for you, you lost the war!!! I'm sorry to inform you that your governors and other leaders in your village, will be the very people who will arrest and throw you in jail, as soon as you restart your treasonous campaign to tear the country apart.
My advise to you people is to learn how to properly participate in the democratic and political process in play, so that you will not be left behind perpetually.
Happy New Year, BTW.
|Re: Annkio Briggs Call On Niger Delta & Ndi-igbo To Break Away! by noiseless: 9:37pm On Feb 23, 2012|
Bros i disagree with you oo! on this one infact you know millions of us support her and ASARI DOKUBO,so bros you are on your own and you know you don't wanna delay our zion train. Whatever differences between the IJAWS and IGBOS however sad,you must agree with me that it was fabricated,planted and forced down people's throats by the usual suspects, the "OWNERS OF NIGERIA" and now people are seeing who the real enemy is,so pls this is time to show our mature nature. And 99.9% of us will choose the ijaws and other neighbours around us instead of those violent lots up north, we need our neighbours and they need us too to be in the same place or country with them afterall life can really be boring if it centres only around the families,so please we are one and have always been,even though the enemies forced their way in uninvited with their guns and threat of violence and starvation for over 40yrs the truth remains we both (IGBO,IJAW) and others have suffered alot in the hands of those who came between us, as all they ever cared for is only their own comfort and it is not gonna keep going forever. SO LET THE ZION TRAIN COME TAKE US HOME
