Edwin Clark is suffering from amnesia.
OBJ formed NDDC, 13 % derivation, hand-picked GEJ to be VP.. than to president.
And you forgot that it was under OBJ that the 50% retention by the regions reduced to nearly zero.
Can we also say that IBB did Yorubas a favour by first annulling June 12 election, watched MKO get jailed and killed for fighting for that June 12 mandate, and then handpicking Obasanjo, buying him the PDP ticket and helping him to become president?

You don’t even understand what you wrote. Your parents that did experience the civil war won’t write up all the above gibberish. Without the south south, the south east will have no where to go. Of course everyone knows the igbos are industrialist, but every region have got a comparative advantage over the other. I’m sorry to say, the Yorubas have all. If Nigeria split today, our region won’t need any region to survive. Lagos access to any west African country is a comparative advantage alone let alone other advantages. Your region have a lot to lose without the Niger delta. If you manufacture, where do you want to take them to if other region set up borders? Which sea do you want to pass if other region set up a defense mechanism. All your income will be paid as duties to others. You don’t know what a United Nigeria is doing to you

I so much love this your response

I don’t even know where to start educating your ignorance. During the civil war, when all your people went home. Lagos revenue was still above many west African state. Where did you think that revenue was coming from? Oh! From the people fighting civil war right? If Igbo pull out from Lagos today, it won’t affect Lagos revenue. The drivers of Lagos economy are the mixed race not a tribe. [/quote

What revenue does Lagos generate?

The vat generated in Lagos is because of consumption of other Nigerians who because of lopsided federal structure came to live in Lagos, the income tax paid by oil companies were got from the same Niger Delta. The money from the banks came from the big banks owned majorly by Niger Delta, the Telco money from mtn came from Nigerians all over the country using mtn. Lagos has no natural resources or human capital or tech capital , the imports coming into Lagos could have come elsewhere from Niger Delta ports if not for lopsided federalism. The imports is majorly by Igbos and the north

Eyaah!!!! A big sorry to you

You got it all wrong. 50% of what? It was never codified in our budget that ND regions would get any percentage until OBJ signed into law and established a commission

I am talking of the independence constitution by which each region retained 50% of her revenue, remitted 30% to the center and threw the remaining 20% into a common distributable pool.

But states already keep 50% & Local Government 35%? With all the monies from The FAAC, highest in the Federation 5 straight years, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State is complaining of not been able to pay State workers?

So what are you talking about? If one likes, give 110% to a Failure & he will still look for a reason to wail.

Even with all the free money they have collected from the FAAC for he last 30 years, ordinary petrol chemical refinery they cannot build severely or jointly?

All the lazy things know is that it is our oil, ask them whether it was their ancestors that planted the crude oil in the soil?

Don't mind them, they think is by having oil here n there, leadership matters in this case, that is one big advantage UAE have above Nigeria, even with all our oil and others resources, UAE is still far better that Nigeria as a whole.

Who is this uncouth child of anger and depression? Who born your ignorant type? Lagos, my homeland and South West do not need oil to prosper. We are strategically located and positioned. When your father was in village, in Igboland the Yoruba generated revenue to keep him and your biafrans alive. Why are you blaming the Yorubas for your father’s failure to raise you well. That’s why we don’t care anymore, if you split the country we are good and if you continue like this, we are good. You and your ancestors historically till date seek asylum in our land.
abeg, when did Yorubas generate revenue that kept Biafrans alive? I am beggining to question Awolowos free education or is this what your elders tell you under the mango tree? grin

Osun is still better than Abia in all ramifications. You should be worried if the Niger delta refused to join Biafra. That’s death end to the east. No access to the sea, gully erosion, etc
But the east have been the ones fighting for secession. Jokes on you. You think Obasanjo did not see the suffering that would engulf the SW if you divide? By the way, countries do not depend on agriculture these days. Science and technology is the way forward. grin

Oh Biafran Cannibalist, God made the Yorubas he soul of Nigeria and when we are ready to leave, we will be unstoppable unlike your minority agitations. Awolowo is not your ancestors’ mate. Awolowo warned your forefathers about the Ibo- Fulani/Hausa agreement to form government in the first republic. Your treacherous ancestors had agreement to form government with the Yorubas led by Awolowo in the morning but they went in the night to formed government with Hausa/Fulani. They’re shortsighted and thought the Yorubas are too educated and advanced to be controlled by Igbo leaders and went with Hausa/Fulani. The rest is history now. However, the rejected stone (Yorubaland) is where you and your ancestors are seeking asylum in the last 60years. Doesn’t that teach you Igbos something?
