Leave every other complaints for their people and not within the purview of Fed Govt or anyone else.

So, don't change the subject matter.
Whose money Dundee, was it their ancestors that put the natural resources there in the earth? Ordinary refinery the Useless South South States can’t build jointly, or severely, yet Dangote & Abdulrahman Rabiu are building private refineries, what all those useless South South governors just do from 1999 till date, is wait for monthly Statutory allocation, & use the money to pay state workers that did not add nada whatsoever to the value to the allocation, then mismanage & steal the remainder money.

Your submission makes no sense! Zamfara went after what's in the land so how can oil states leave oil and go for gold in another state? There should be 100% resource control because what is good for Zamfara is good for other states. Same law of equality should apply
blackgold90:

I am from delta state and this is my position

The 6 Niger delta states should rather pool resources and invest in building a mega refinery to help the region and profit from it selling it products to Nigerians and for export just as dangote about to doing.

If a single billionaire can pool resources they too should do the same instead of crying over zamfara Gold.

First gold is not as profitable as profitable as oil,you can prospects for gold for jokey years and nothing will come out of it,that is why you don't have big companies like shell,Mobil,chevron in gold sector in Nigeria.

The minister of mineral resources has process of granting solid mineral license on gold and others solid mineral resource to interested companies and individuals,they pay about 5% back to govt.

If they are so jealous of zamfara gold they should form Niger delta gold company and collect licence from FG and go after gold in zamfara but I suggest they do oil refinery because oil resources is available to them.

What they are about to embark on is useless,rather I encouraged they to venture into gas and oil refinery where there is huge market than constituting nuisance and making jest of Niger delta.

Small them militant will take it over and they will be blame for it.

Let me buttress your misconstrued point, & see whether it makes any sense to you: The resources belongs to them? That means the oil & gas found in Ughelli South, belongs to only the indigenes of the Local Government?, The Oil & Gas found in Warri North belongs only to the indigenous people of Warri North, not the whole Delta State? Because the oil & gas is the property of your great grandfather? All resources underneath the end belongs to the Federal Government (We the People Of The Federal Republic of Nigeria).

Ignorance is not an excuse, in future you would say that you were not aware, there was a gold rush, & other solid minerals going on in Northern Nigeria for years now, financed by foreigners, mostly the Chinese which needs urgent legislation & regulation which in turn is fueling large scale criminality in the region.

Stop using the word feeding Nigerians as if the food is given to Nigerians for free! Infact the North is exploiting Nigerians by selling above market price in the world. How can Thailand rice be over 50% cheaper and far more superior in terms of quality than Northern rice?
TheLionofLasigi:


Really if Nigeria divides today almost all regions will suffer in one way or the other, and I wouldn't say that the north contributes nothing to the Nigerian economy, in terms of agriculture they're practically feeding Nigeria but their leaders have failed to see the opportunity that agriculture presents and would rather interest themselves with SS oil, Boko Haram is currently collecting fees from farmers before they can harvest and their leaders are busy worried about EndSARs people, those guys in the past built groundnut pyramids and partly fuelled the Nigerian economy with agriculture, their leaders greed for power and extremist beliefs makes them fail to understand that they would be the biggest beneficiaries if Nigeria is restructured today...southern leaders on the other hand are no even better.... obasanjo spent 8 years in power but nothing really noteable was done in his region of origin. Southern leaders are just self centered fools

Sorry if it was misunderstood, they're feeding Nigeria at a price but it's not like we can't survive without them. Understand that all rice farmers in the north are not all northerners, there are also southerners who have rice farms in Niger state for example. the issue of pricing is partly to do with the exploitative nature of the average Nigerian, middle men and the border closure, even some farmers here in the South would still sell at the same price as goods brought from the north despite their farms being close to market, Aside from all this most youths here in the South aren't really interested in core farming and even if the border is opened we'll still depend on the north for most agric produce. If South really wants to compete it should go back to it's agricultural roots instead of building housing estate upandan

[b]So the gold belongs to the approved miners? [/b]If it belongs to the fg, why are they planning to sell to fg again? Una think say only una wise


It's like asking me if the oil they drill out of the oil well belong to the oil companies like Shell, Chevron and so on.

Oil drillers get operating license from the government to drill oil, gold miners get operating license to mine gold.

The FG collects taxes and royalties off every oz of gold mined.

Zamfara is not selling any gold to the FG, they are storing the gold they bought as gold reserve, you and your own state too can buy gold and store it as gold reserve, it's perfectly legal, it's not a crime, it's a business opportunity.

It's not different from Nigerians investing and trading in oil and gas or operating petrol stations.

Instead of getting in there to take advantage of this business opportunity, the lazy governors are crying over nothing.

Their silly monday noise and y gathering will come and go without any effect or relevance beyond wherever they gathered to eat poundo and drink pami.

Useless and lazy governors still can not invest and tap into the oil under their feet, but they are wagging fingers at other people for tapping into the resources on their land.

Because it's a business and money making opportunity and it's completely legal.

Nigerians from every corner of Nigeria are buying and selling oil and oil products, they building refineries to process oil bought from oil producers, they have petrol stations all over the country so please explain to us why the SS states are yet to tap into the oil business under their feet.

Nigeria is a geographical entity created by the British. The British operated Nigeria based on Federalism and regional government. That is the foundation of Nigeria. That system does not make resources in a region the property of all the regions making up Nigeria.

There are States in the US that are richer than France. University of California's annual budget is almost the same with Nigeria's Annual budget because US practice true Federalism, States manage their resources. That was the system the Colonial Masters handed over to Nigeria at Independence.

The present system is very exploitative and oppressive. The owners of oil become slaves at NNPC while the parasites manage the resources.

Zamfara State government through a registered company, with a buying centre license is now buying gold from the artisanal miners at market price.

Though states through their licensed corporate bodies can buy and sell gold to any interested persons or company, it is worthy of note that CBN did not and will not buy gold from Zamfara Government.

Which States in the US handles their resources? & what resources are you referring to?, why compare Nigeria with another country that has its own laws? America encourages homosexuality, must we copy their system action for action, States in Nigeria control their resources.

Human capital is a resource & actually the most important, IT is also a resource, not just natural resources, how many of the top 10 American billionaires are natural resource wealthy, the way you keep shouting Texas as if oil magnate Thomas Boone Pickens was ever amongst the richest men in the US?

No one has stopped the states in Nigeria from harnessing anything, only lazy people find an excuse for their failure. Who controls the oil & gas resource in Saudi Arabia & other OPEC countries, individuals or the state?

Who controls the natural resources in Russia, Putin or Individuals?

The oil & gas in Norway is controlled by the state like NNPC Nigeria through
Equinor ASA (formerly Statoil and StatoilHydro), is a Norwegian state-owned multinational energy company headquartered in Stavanger, & is primarily a petroleum company, operating in 36 countries with additional investments in renewable energy. By revenue, while under Statoil name, Equinor was ranked by Forbes Magazine (2013) as the world's eleventh largest oil and gas company and the twenty-sixth largest company, regardless of industry, by profit in the world, The company has about 20,200 employees.

The current company was formed by the 2007 merger of Statoil with the oil and gas division of Norsk Hydro, Similar to NNPC, As of 2017, the Government of Norway is the largest shareholder with 67% of the shares, while the rest is public stock, The ownership interest is managed by the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and EnergyThe company is headquartered and led from Stavanger, while most of their international operations are currently led from Fornebu, outside Oslo
.

See your argument about state control of resources & NNPC holds no water whatsoever, incompetence, & mismanagement, not structure is what is killing Nigeria, do new research before you open your basket void medulla next time, Mumu.
