|Us, France, Britain Conspired Against Nigeria’ by kaypound(m): 8:54am On Aug 14, 2008|
AS the Federal Government hands over the oil rich Bakassi Peninsula on Thursday (today), a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Chuks Muoka, has accused three world powers of conspiracy in the ruling of the International Court of Justice which gave the area to Cameroun.
They are the United States, France and Britain.
He told our correspondent in Port Harcourt that the world powers worked against Nigeria’s interest while the case was pending at The Hague.
He said, “There was an international conspiracy against Nigeria. That conspiracy affected the judgment of the IJC.
“For instance, France was against us, the United States was against us and at that instance, Britain had no option than tow the line of its former colonial partner.”
He faulted the ruling of the world’s court, saying that a plebiscite should have been conducted to enable the people choose where to belong before the ruling was given on the case.
Muoma also called on the Federal Government to prosecute the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, for the wrong decision he took at the time.
Mouka said the former president should be punished for signing the Green Tree Agreement without the consent of the National Assembly.
The Port Harcourt-based lawyer said the action of the former president was not only wrong but also scandalous.
He said, “Obasanjo and his co-travellers have to tell Nigerians what they have gained by ceding Bakassi to Cameroun because Nigeria has not gained anything from that action,” he said.
“It was surprising that Obasanjo went to Washington to sign the GTA without recourse to the National Assembly.
“Who told Obasanjo that he could cede any part of Nigeria ’s sovereign territory to another country without the approval of the National Assembly.”
He argued that Nigeria should have adopted a military option to resolve the ownership question on the peninsula instead of implementing the decision of the ICJ.
He contended that Nigeria’s constitution had operated for several years on the peninsula which has representation at the Senate and the House of Representatives.
He noted that President Umaru Yar’Adua should not have been hasty in handing over the disputed peninsula since the lives of thousands of Nigerians would be affected by the action.

Nigerians never seize to make me crack up.
Why are these guys trying to defend their wickedness by accusing the west of conspiracy.
It was Gowon and Nigeria that conspired against the eastern Nigeria and Bakassi in particular, signing away the peninsula.

the muoka of a man must be a drunk.
he shld go and get him busy with something else if at his level he lacks information on bakasi.
very soon, information is going to emerge from muoka on how the west conspired to force obj go for third term.
i wonder why muoka did not mention the west in our other areas of madness like our roads, electricity, security and poor leadership qualities.
we are a failed nation and we have decided to make failure our permanent friend and based on this, we don't have no other way to progress than finding and giving unnecessary excuses.
shame to muoka, shame to gowon and shame to all of you decievers.

Thanks for the conspiracy theories, as if Nigeria is on the mind of the US. If you like keep decieving yourselves.
