Politics / A Solution To The Niger Delta Avengers And Niger Delta Plight by sandraokosun1: 12:25am On May 27, 2016
I have been observing the current activities of the niger delta avengers, and i want to in my view profer what i belive is a solution not just to this menance but to the the burning issues surrounding the Niger delta.


Without trying to take sides with either a side that feels it is payback time to distabilize this government to justify the adage that what you sow you reap.


Or another side that feels the restive bodies should be ignored or dealt with.

I dont want to also dwell in details on what the avengers really want which we hear entails
RENEGOCIATION OF OIL BLOCKS
FREEDOM OF NNAMDI KANU. Etc

No matter the political colouration this demands denote one thing is certain their is a DEMAND.

And i only want to recognise the
RENEGOCIATION OF OIL BLOCKS AS PERTINENT because no matter the party affiliation that is the major issue you would want to think partains to the Niger deltans amongst other things.


These oil blocks were issued and assertained for some time before now dating to the 80's, 70's.
In as much as that doesn't become a concern to address a pertinent issue at anytime deemed fit as long as its tangled with a bit of sincerity/purpose with no alterior motive to primary distabilise a government on grounds of political agradisements and financial blackmail.


Enough attention has been raised if this was solely for recognition adventure.
The government has said it would engage with the aggrieved bodies and is no reason to doubt it wouldn't at a time when it needs all it can get.


If genuine the signals has been sent and their is no need floging a dead horse when the rip effect of such actions doesnt just affect a section of the country but even worst hit the places of the aggrieved persons who not only get hit by ecomomic halt, but more pollution and degradation of an already bleeding environment.



For how long would aggrieved niger deltans see destruction of pipelines as the only way to draw attention to their plight.



The Famous ogoni group led by saro wiwa, never sabotaged their communities in a bid to make a statement, they rather drew the world to their plight by constructive superior allignment with priniciples, and they were at the verge of getting things done if not for the unfortunate remembrance that it was in a military regime which is adverse to anything in the form of opposition in ideas and principles.



Those years gone by and not a group can still be half effective as the famous ogoni's.

The reason to this cannot be far fetched.
What we find today is majorly an hijack of what ought to be genuine struggle for financial blackmail and political agradisements to armtwist a certain government.

The results of which have seen even geniune struggles mistaken for a group sponsored to carryout nefarious activities so as to get justified big pay cheques to their sponsors who inturn guarantees safety of pipeline facilities.
A case of giving a thief money for safekeeping.


This trend has continued overtime giving non-available state funds to most group who has found it lucrative to hire boys to destroy pipeline and armtwist government all in the name of civil activism.


Worst still these monies gained overyears by the sponsors activist are not used to develop their lands but used to build universities outside the countries, and investments outside the communities they claim to speak for, only more guns and peanuts end up in the hands of youth predisposed to them.


What can be done?


A new re-awaeking for government to start taking the Niger Delta affairs serious.

People have talked about national dialouge, but to be sincere this is Nigeria.
We know how the last national confab went, if anything it has opened the eyes of Nigerians to see the forces holding the country together, and how they dictate what should and should not be discussed, including having a pronouncement on the final outcome on what was tabled down.

Those same forces are aged long and still truthfuly dictactes how aggitation from any particular region is given preference, even when a president from the niger delta was elected it still didnt change the fundamentals and basics of the general aggitations of the Niger deltans which was only suppressed with contracts and the decision of overlook many grey areas with the notion of compensation that he is "our son" lets not spoil his government.


I dare say compensations, pity,contracts that benefit a handful can only suppress the grief for a while but the reality can only be solved and not bribed.


Vandalism and pipeline destruction if guineue too cannot solve the issue but bring about hardship to all.


The only solution is for the Niger delta and indeed the ss to speak in one voice and start acting up to the tag which it so much desires the nation to address it as "the nation's pride.


You dont get treated as a bride when you dont act suchway.

I borrow this lesson from the last general election and how the south west had position it self with pride to become the envy of all.

Despite the all in all and machinery of billions pumped to secure its love.
The region took all that money and still allinged with the party it felt represented its ideas and interests.
None can doubt today how proper allinging has entrenched their values, interest and representation in decisions and policy taken to the envy of others.


How much more the golden bride niger delta can do much more, enough of this disrespect, the region should carry itself with dignity and stop the every state for itself attitude.


It shares similar interests above all in the NDDC.
It should start acting as one when IT COMES TO NATIONAL INTEREST.

The biggest grandeur towards national interest is 80% in election which represents the most profound way a government comes into power where the new awakeing would see the Niger delta taking shape and dictacting the role it expects from a government before backing it, even if it chooses to stick with the previous option not considering another direction atleast their should be a renegociation in the way it firmly expects to be treated with its issues at the front burner.


Niger delta problems can be solved if it is serious about it.
It problems remains unsolved simply because government after government feels it doesnt kown its right ie the ODI EXAMPLE, or that a few contracts can close the voice of a certain few.


The onion is on the Niger deltans to speak in one accord and become a true region rather than a coglomerates of states.

The nation is about Interests

ZUBY77:


Are you saying that since it happened in 80s and 90s, it must remain that way forever?
bro i never said that, infact i am a strong activist of who owns a thing should have a say to it. But bro their is a nothern conspiracy in this marriage called nigeria. Same conspiracy what hatched by the tafawa balewa, ahmadu bello, usman danfodio, they succesed in pulling the leaders of other regions to it. Its been on for long, gej himself ignored the ss and ogoni cause, the amensity was a yaradu thing and he had no choice than to continue, apart from that did he do anything abt revoking these things no? Instead he was aiding and alberting ibb,shagaya,indimi,alakija,danjuma and the others that were culprits. Destroying pipelines at this time when things are hard wont help. The revenue of the oil goes to the ss too majorly and ss citizens would also feel the brunt. These group are appendages of people who are aggrieved that their deals for free money are off. I wouldnt have complained if these people were using the money well, they get the money and go to outside nigeria to invest it and they become billionaires who can give guns to youths, and create army of cultists giving them money for beer, and peanuts etc, most of these niger delta youths are their boys today, with no future for them other than using them to blackmail any government. The only way ss can fight for themselves is to have one voice and make government that addressing the issue of its region as it is and not as a group or fraction hunger to get contract to feed on. Just like the sw proved in the last election and made/continously make any government agree with its terms. SS can as one should stop acting cheap to any party. It has 6states and that is viable for any party that wants to win. It should go with any party that would rather agree to work on its template and needs, i do believe that party would start redesigning its manifesto to suit the solving of ss problems, before u knw it other party would take note, just so they woo the nations golden bride the niger delta issues would take front burner. That is the only option, no national confab would work in this country becos every region is trying to checkmate the other especially the hausas. Today politics is abt standing up as a region and giving your terms, that was the same template that brought the protetorates together. Unfortunately every state wants to go so lo and they are taken for nothing. Every president weither u like it or not would want to remain statos quo so he is not seen as anti north or a threat to the parasitic nigeria marriage, so was also the case with gej. But when its a region giving terms on where it stands if it must be carried along, that would set a precedence to the nation. Its not rocket science, their is strength in unity and oneness, that is the PRINCIPLE OF THE NORTHERN Caliphate, thats what makes them dictate and have their way since 1960, they succeded in strengthing their oneness and disintegrating the ss into fragments, and even in that fragments they find way to split it into fractions

In as much as the nda issues are craftily laced with the Attempt of resource renegociation. It begs the answers was the allocation of oil block done today or has pmb given any which annoys them. These are events that occured in the 1990's to 80's by recklesness of military with corruption to the democracy era. This can only be a blackmail to hide behind a mask to perpetrate evil. Demand on kanu even denotes the outright PDP political tendency to free its appendage all in bid to threaten the nigeria unity. This stupidity is mainly by a bunch of pdp sympathizers who have refused to see life without the largese of been given free billions in the name of securing pipelines just to hoodwink the govt.

I do hope these boys realise that they are the ones at loss here. Doing their masters bidding who only want protection contracts that they wont use to develop the place.
By 2019 they would still be faced with another hausa president till 2023. So why destroy and pollute your land

I dont see sherif backing down after using his loot in billions to survive pdp for a time.
Sherif is a radical, and would pull down the whole thing than for anyone else to benefit.
He still has his own core fraction in that party.
The worst has only begun, markarfi doesnt have a quater liver to pull pdp fractions frm further diseminating within that 3 months.

Just like the signs was there to see pdp would loose that election. The signs now are uncontrollably worst. I dont see modu sheriff backing down without atleast pulling everything down. The man has his fraction too and very violent. I see him falling out with the group that made decision to remove him. Fayose would not tame when modu treats his betrayal, gana group isnt really abt modu removal but want the soul of the party as the elders they call themselves. Court indujctions would continously be a recurring decimal from now and counter groups would start emerging. Fractions would start taking sides.

Abeg when we say celeb dont bring in politicians who killed people,carry guns, join cult to get position. Dont also bring in people in government parasatals who got their by virtue of balancing the one nigeria equation. We need free civilians who became popular in the social, religious, secular circle around nigeria via virtue of their hardwork and pesitence.
On that note am disappointed with this list, emefile, okonjo iweala, kachukwu arent celebrities.

He is no Jesus, but when u see the same way obasanjo, tinubu are hailed and revered in the south west u may think they were saint, but what is been justified is how much the men changed the annals of the political component of their region and opened the frontials of the political annals inpediments.

Same is the way the chief has opened up edo state political composition with men who today can atleast be reckoned with by virtue of the rub off and association with him at certain time

Sometimes i wonder what would have become of the binis or the inconsequential afemais if the ESANS werent in edo state. By far the smallest senatorial district in size and lga. But ESANS have 80% of exports from the state. Dealing in national politics, moving for independence of a whole nation, highest producers of ministers and fg heads. 1st in establishment, sports, entertainment,etc. Yet have just only 5 lga affecting the nation in ways a whole geopolitical region has not. The binis and afemais can keep playing their local beer parlour politics of marginilization to esan, it only ends in edo.

so Nigerians voted for Buhari so that he can increase electricity tarrif? Can u hear yourself? Nigerians are not Zombies they voted Buhari because they wanted good governance, subsidy in petroleum and kerosine has been removed without people talking...dis is due to low price of oil world wide not because people are blinded by love with the APC or Buhari. It took GEJ 2 years to go out of favour with Nigerians believe me it will take buhari far less time before his ardent supporters will hang him in the sun to dry out. PDP should not think this will be to their advantage because the rage that will follow will totally consume them
u dont get it do u? Gej and pmb are different, gej came via circumstances and played the oppressed card nt cos he was loved.
Pmb is trusted cos of his integrity, i tell u he got there cos of integrity, we who voted him, our heart are at rest cos we knw the treasury is in good hands.
No more sharing of funds.
Their is no delibrate policy to drain masses and fund rich.
