Imo To Recover Oil Wells From Rivers by IgbofromDelta: 3:07pm On Nov 20
The efforts of the government of Senator Hope Uzodinma to boost the economy of Imo State has received a huge boost following the move by the government to recover some oil wells wrongly ceded to Rivers State.

Imo and her neighboring Rivers have been in a protracted battle over oil wells belonging to the state but for which Rivers State receives monthly allocation and other benefits.

It was gathered that the Rivers State government had frustrated previous efforts to resolve the issue, leading to the decision of the Imo State government under Uzodimma to intensify efforts towards recovering the oil wells through legal means.

Last Thursday, the deputy governor of Imo State, Prof. Placid Njoku, led a team of state officials to appear before the National Boundary Commission and submitted sensitive documents, including the survey plan of the state, with which to reclaim the disputed oil wells.

According to a release issued by the deputy governor’s media assistant, Ozioma Ukwuoma, the documents were submitted to the National Boundary Commission in the presence of the Surveyor-General of the Federation, Surveyor Samuel Adeniran, and the Director-General of the National Boundary Commission, Surveyor Adaji Adamu.

Prof. Njoku, who is also the chairman of the Imo State Boundary Commission, was quoted to have urged the commission “to rise to the occasion and give justice to the people of Imo State, who have suffered untold hardship over the years as a result of the brazen denial of their God-given wealth which should have been used for their development but had been in the hands of the wrong state”.

Njoku stated that “the impact of recovering lost oil wells back to the state would become one of the greatest economic development strategy tools deployed in the last 30 years in Imo State as it would usher in increased fiscal and non fiscal revenue, increased foreign direct investment (FDI), increased local content participation that create thousands of job opportunities for Imo people as well as increase the influence of the state as an oil producing state”.

The delegation included the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barr C.O.C Akolisa, the Special Adviser and Coordinator Oil and Gas, Rt. Hon. Goodluck Nanah Opiah, Oil and Gas expert, Dr. Chioma Njoku, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Lands, Survey and Physical Planning, Surveyor Uzoma John, and the Surveyor General of the State, Surveyor C.A.P. Anele.

Nyesomghosa Wikevie has been collecting our oil money while abusing us all these while. If the right thing is done and all communities ceeded to Rivers State from Imo and Abia states unjustly, are retuned to these states, it's obvious that the loquacious upstart from a sterile ObiAkpor will struggle to see the endless funds he uses wantonly to forment troubles here and there! Most of his derivation funds from non offshore wells come from these communities, yet they get nothing from the state governor! He uses derivation money from other communities to develop his own local government and then send in fulani soldiers to go and finish the villagers for daring to raise their voices...Very rascally brat.

Imo State will win the case if you understand Nigerian politics.
Especially now that Mr Supreme is in charge.
Winning back Egbema, Obigbo and Asa will solidify APC in Imo state and Buhari knows this. Reason why Mr Supreme took the Supreme documents to his backyard (the Supreme Court)

We need our oil wells back! All these injustices were perpetrated as purnishment to the SE for the war. Nyesomghosa Wikevie needs to fund his PDP with oil receipts from ObiAkpor LGA.

That is what APC is aiming to cripple. This is why APC needs Abia state so bad. With Abia state they can successfully resolve the disputes and relieve Rivers state of Egbema, Obigbo, Ndoki and all Asa areas completely thus reducing the finance of PDP and watch the party go extinct.
All these is possible if Abia defect before Wike. Because if wike goes first, they will prefer crippling Igboland economy over the party's interest, something PDP did for 21 years.
So the ball is in SE court. Progressive future or Pride.
Believe me some SE leaders will choose pride over it. Sorry to say this, this is what yorubas have on us. By now all of them would have defected to gain those areas

The man na bastard!

When i talk of the Nigerian political-economy working against Igbo interest, this carving of hydrocarbon rich Igbo territories into Rivers State, to be overseen by Igbo haters, is a case in point!

And to think those areas are the reason some group of people are pinning themselves on Bini and shouting up and down amazes me.
Well Imo and Abia just need to swallow their pride and gain those territories back

Justice will be Egbema and Ndoni returning back to Imo State....or at least being left to choose where they want to go! Forget Ogba....those ones can remain in Rivers State!

Hmmmmm,
I can see where you are coming from. But beyond "defection" is a perennial morbid fear of the Igbo. That's the elephant in the room. You have to take that into consideration too. I'm not sure the APC leadership will ever keep their own part of the bargain. Remember that Amaechi is still there and really fought hard to keep those oil wells when some were given back to Imo during the tenure of Goodluck Jonathan.. I doubt it can go that smoothly even if the fat frog at Umuahia government house decides to jump into APC . The whole plan will develop a K-leg if somebody simply shouts "Nnamdi kanu" name at the middle of any of their meetings.. They will all start seeing Godzillas and kingkongs all over the place..

They should return all the oil wells Rivers state stole from Imo state. Afterwards, they should be made to pay all the arears accordingly.

Rubbish and Wike, let's see where he will get money to throwing around like a drunken sailor.

Ogba and Ikwerre are not needed, they are better off remaining under Bini identity but other Igbos in Rivers State are very much like us and we will happily reunite with them.

LOL, but we still have to take the intimidating odd at times because for now PDP has absolutely nothing to offer Ndigbo. Though I still maintain our APGA for nationalism sake

Ndoni has never been part of old eastern region instead it was in mid west Nigeria. If ndoni is to leave I believe it would be right to cede it back to present delta state were they can unite with the Adiah and ukwuani brothers, I wonder y delta state is not fighting for oil rich ndoni the heart beat of hydrocarbon in the central delta region

Ikwerre people are just cheating the other ethnic groups in Rivers State.

They are enjoying the benefits of the oil money than the oil-producing ethnic groups in Rivers State
