|Letter To Niger Delta Avengers And Their Supporters by goodlifehyd(m): 1:04pm On Jun 01, 2016
Before I start I have a few questions for you supporters.
1. Where did the Niger Delta Struggle go to in the last 6 years'
2. Why is there so much vandalization of oil facilities off late'
3. Is it true you don't want Tompolo arrested
4. Is the allegations leveled on Tompolo true' If no, why has he not honored the invitation and if yes, then the so called development money you are looking for was out-rightly swallowed by him.
Thank you, permit me to roll in my mind on the issue on ground.
Before the emergence of Goodluck Ebele Jonathan as president, the likes of
Edwin Clark etc were always on Television telling Nigerians and the world how the South-South has been marginalized by the North and the West despiteher oil.
By divine and metaphysical error, Goodluck Jonathan from the South-South, the presumed Nazareth of Nigeria became the president of Nigeria after President Umaru Yaradua's death in 2009.His emergence came as a joyous daybreak to end our age-long marginalization .
There was a beacon light of hope for my region. Immediately, the Niger Delta struggle stumbled and died or gone Comatose.
The Niger Delta activists mentioned above became Jonathan's spokespersons and abandoned the struggle. In 2011, Nigerians, Hausa,Yoruba, Igbo, Christians and Muslims voted massively for Jonathan. Thereafter, administrative thieves were appointed Ministers and head of federal institutions,- Convicted criminals received presidential pardon.- Militants were given contracts running into billions of Naira.- Impunity and corruption became the norm.
All these and many more replaced the Niger Delta struggle for resource control. The need for constant electricity, portable water, good health facilities, good road network, massive manpower development etc went into oblivion. Even the recent Ogoni UNEP report that would have changed the live of an average Ogoni man was not implemented by their regional brother - president. Recall that NDDC was established by Olusegun Obasanjo a Yoruba man. Ministry of Niger and Amnesty Office was established by Late,President Umaru Musa Yaradua, a Northerner. Regrettably, this two federal agencies including NIMASA and NNPC became conduit pipes for Jonathan's Wife, Nyesom Wike, Deziani Allison, Godswill Apkabio and many cronies of Jonathan to Molest and siphon funds meant for the development of the Niger Delta region.
Due process died.
And the Niger Delta struggle died in their son's hand.
Former Governor Rotimi Amaechi, knowing that the South - South may not have the opportunity of Producing the President of Nigeria again cried out and they called him a betrayer. They fought him with federal might and pushed him out of PDP, a replicate of what Joseph's brothers did when they sold him to the Ishmelites.
But today Amaechi is laughing because they pushed him to stardom.
Even the East/ West road that was awarded by former President Obasanjo and inherited by Yaradua and later Jonathan is still not completed.
Bayelsa State today does not have an airport or a strong federal government institution that can generate employment opportunities for Bayelsa youths. Few months to the Presidential election, Ankio Briggs, Asari Dokubo, Edwin Clark, Nyesom Wike, Tompolo Government, Kingsley Kuku, etc awaken the Niger Delta struggle.
What a shame, What an irony'
For five years nobody heard them because they were swimming and sleeping on money. When Goodluck Ebele Jonathan eventually contested and lost the 2015 Presidential election to Gen. Muhammadu Buhari of the APC,the House of Assembly of all South-South states became a compensation point for militants ( Former and Active).Everything was done with the police and INEC to ensure that cronies of Jonathan and his wife were declared winners of the governorship and House of Assembly elections in the South-South especially Rivers State and Bayelsa.
And if Jonathan had won the last election and ruled for another ten years, there won't be any hope for the actualization of the Niger Delta Struggle.
Go to Oloibiri and other villages in Ijaw land and see the level of environmental degradation yet their son was president of Nigeria for six years.
People are living a stone-age life over there, no land to build a house, no pipe burn water, no hospital, no school and no road yet some people will seat in Abuja and Portharcourt collecting billions of Naira as Champions of the Niger Delta struggle.
I read some few days ago that the President has directed the release of the funds meant for the clean up of Ogoni Land. What their own son was reluctant to implement after spending a whole six years in office, but here is a man in less than 1 year set up a committee to look into the delay and now they are ripe to implement.
Who is fooling who? Are they fighting for the cause of Niger Delta or their pockets?
When you bomb an oil installation, you put your own people at risk health wise.
Your waters in the village is contaminated
You reduce the federal allocation to the state
You reduce power supply capacity.
Buhari does not stay in your village, he does not need water to drink from your village, the power supply any where he is will not blink a second even if you decide to bomb your whole village. This is a compendium og foolishness.
The people who will suffer from the mental selfish exercise were not empowered the last 6 years, those who benefited from the loots have squandered the loots on women, drinks and landed property if not why has Tompolo even after his bank account was frozen and some of his property sealed by the federal government, he still choose to be in hiding.
Niger Deltans Be Wise!
What Good luck could not give to them in the last 6 years, they now want Buhari to give them in 1 year, madness indeed.

When i read people supporting these guys and their insane vandalism, i just smile. They are, in the long run, going to pay for it. Just like Asari and Tompolo, these ones are fighting for their pockets as well.
Nigerians are sick people generally. I can't stand to imagine someone defending Tinubu, when it is obvious he is a corrupt man. Other people supporting Jonathan and claming that he was not part of the siphoning of public wealth. All this just because we are from the same parts of the country.
This explains why nothing was blown up in the Jonathan era.
Until something is done about tribalism, Nigeria is going nowhere.
