Duoye Diri: Nigeria Didn’t Use Cocoa Money To Develop Oil by Maxymilliano(m): 12:39pm On Feb 10
Bayelsa State Governor Duoye Diri has explained that oil wasn’t developed in Nigeria by money made from cocoa farming but money invested by international oil companies.

The governor, on Thursday, during an interview on Channels Television breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily said many Nigerian leaders wrongly spread the notion that cocoa money was invested into oil exploration in the country.

A lot of people make a mistake and say we used cocoa money to developed oil, that’s not true.

“Multinational, international oil companies came with the capital in oil exploration and exploitation. There was no money from Nigeria, every money that came was monies from those who came to develop oil here. These are the issues Nigeria needs to resolve,” Diri said.

Even though Bayelsa State is an oil-producing state, the governor said his administration is working to re-orientate youths to go into farming.

According to him, farming is a priority and everyone in the state is encouraged to key into it.

“Agriculture is a priority for this government, we are working hard to have a change of mindset of our youths to key into Agriculture. Tomorrow, the Akwa-Ibom governor is coming into Bayelsa to flag off the farming season. He will also superintend over the made-in-Bayelsa Agriculture show.

“Oil is almost going; we cannot continue to live (dependent) on oil. The focus of this government is agriculture. Let us all key into Agriculture,” the governor said.

​Oil according to the NNPC was discovered in Nigeria far back in 1956 at Oloibiri in the Niger Delta after half a century of exploration. The discovery was made by Shell-BP, at the time the sole concessionaire, and the country’s economy has since been largely dependent on oil production.

Oil was not first discovered in oloibiri in present Bayelsa, it was first discovered in a town called Iho, dimeze in present Ikeduru LGA of IMO in 1937. Almost 20yrs before Oloibiri.

This is irresponsible talk from a clown because of hatred and pomposity. This is a dangerous talk that can make the westerners impose themselves forever on Nigeria oilfields and nothing can anyone do about it

No be only Cocoa money na Cocacola money.

How come Afonjas stopped making money from their cocoa all of a sudden? Is it bad to continue making money off such viable venture or are they saying cocoa is no longer being used around the world today??


Very thieving tribe. All they know is to reap where they did not sow.

70% of Afonja landlords today stole their properties from Igbos in 1967.
The Lagos State that Afonjas claim as their greatest achievement was the Federal capital developed by Abokis using Niger Delta and South East oil and palm oil money. Afonjas contributed nothing.


Mark my words, once Nigeria breaks up, Oduduwa Nation will be colonized by either Arewa or Biafra.

of course it takes a lot of strength to come up with this brilliant masterpiece you just typed up there. I hope you have eaten today. Have you?

To you lazy Afonja, it should be difficult but to me it took less than a minute.


That's the difference between Nwafors and Afonjas.

Oga I'm only trying to compliment your efforts. Why are you abusing me na? grin grin grin
Anyway, I wish you well, and I pray one day you will also become a globally renowned writer like afonja soyinka, a Nobel Laurette in literature. Did I hear you say a big AMEN?

Oga governor shut up ...it's well known that the eastern regional government as at that time spent millions of dollars prospecting oil

Infact the agreement nnpc use today was agreement between shell n eastern region government

Cocoa didn't found oil exploration alone
Cocao from cross River ( largest cocoa producers in Nigeria ) and abia/imo ...

rubber from bayelsa ,cross River ,akwa Ibom ,rivers , abia .....

Cashew nuts from Abia , Enugu , cross River

Palm oil from the whole eastern region ( akwa Ibom , ogoni , etche have the best oil )

These things made the eastern region fastest growing region in the world ...but some people allowed propaganda work on them and here we are

Look at what this man is say. Where did the money developing Nigeria before oil came from? Cocoa and groundnut. What was used in constructing PTI warri? Cocoa money so many universities and government agencies were built with proceeds from agricultural produce. Now instead of you morons to allow oil money develop the country in begin steal anyhow. You guys are only crying because the Northerners steal it more than you. You're all thieves.

The northerners claim that dey used their money from groundnut to develop the oil in Niger Delta.

One of our security guys in PH who's from Jigawa state always argued with me. He said if Nigeria must be divided, that the oil in the ND should be divided too, because they used their money from groundnut to develop it.

Meanwhile this guy didn't even attend primary skl, so he's a stark illiterate. I asked him who told him that, he said that's what they taught them in the mosque

Lol...seems this man is not a student of history. Awolowo singlehandedly used proceeds from cocoa to developed south, ijaw and by extension the whole of Bayelsa were beneficiaries. I know a lot of South South indigenes (Bendel of old) who would've been stacked illiterates if not for free education through cocoa proceeds.

Same afonja gave your forefathers free education. Same afonja exposed your forefathers to civilization. If afonja had closed the gate at ọrẹ on y'all, SE will be the poorest region in Nigeria by now. Whenever you wake up from your bug-infested bed everyone morning, bend down and thank God for what afonja has done and still doing in ensuring the Igbo tribe didn't perish to oblivion.
