sentaljohn:
we need a permanent solution to this triibal issues... and am not suggestion separation.. infact, am against it, we are strong as one.. God help us
this is not about tribalism, it's about opportunity and common sense, what is the sense in building a seaport in the city with the most seaports in the nation...taking jobs away from those who need it and are the bane if your buisness to somewhere else, it is just ridiculous and an insult to host communities.

For a company like NLNG which has maintain a very good relationship with their host communities unlike others like shell, this was a stupid decision. Which I can only attribute to Babs omotowa attempt to steer vital NLNG buisness back to his region after ibeneche's outright and sudden relocation to the south.

Politics / Niger Delta Youths To Shut Down NLNG Facilities Over Planned Lagos Shipyard. by Symphony007: 7:09am On Aug 05, 2015
N’Delta youths threaten NLNG over plan to build shipyard outside Rivers


NIGER Delta youths have threatened to stage a massive protest and possibly shut down facilities of the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Company (NLNG), if the company fails to reverse its decision to build dry-dock shipyard outside its operational base in Rivers State. Over 30 youth leaders handed in the threat yesterday in Port Harcourt while briefing journalists on the developments.

Some of the youth organizations include, the National Youths Council of Nigeria, Rivers State chapter, Ijaw Youths Council, Bonny Youths Federation, Niger Delta People Volunteer and Salvation Front, Rivers Ethnic Youth Leaders Coalition among others. Speaking under the aegis of Niger Delta Youth Organizations, the spokesman of the group, Simeon Wilcox said, “the youths would shutdown NLNG facilities if all peaceful modalities failed to convince the company to reverse the decision to build its shipyard outside the region.”

Wilcox disclosed that the youths were particularly grieved on the fact that NLNG decided against all odds to construct a dry-dock shipyard worth $1.5 billion dollars in an area outside its operational base in Niger Delta. “The NLNG did a kangaroo feasibility study without the knowledge of the stakeholders from Rivers State and Niger Delta at large,” the spokesman said.

He said such decision taken by NLNG was seen as a clear case of insensitive and provocative corporate plan, adding that the company has failed to consider the high unemployment rate in the Niger Delta region, especially in Bonny Kingdom. Wilcox said, “We are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari, Chief Nyesom Wike and members of the Rivers State House of Assembly to intervene on this all important matter in order to avert a serious anarchy.

“We are going to shutdown the NLNG facilities if the company fails to do the needful, the youths of Rivers State and that of Niger Delta would be mobilize to protest across every NLNG operational community until the company consider the interest of the region.”

Politics / Nostalgia: Does This Look Farmilia To What's Happening Today? by Symphony007: 10:12am On Jul 30, 2015
LAGOS, Nigeria, April 29— Four months after seizing power, Nigeria's military leaders appear to be suffering an erosion of popular support.

Last Dec. 31, Maj. Gen. Mohammed Buhari led a group of young officers in a coup against the civilian Government of President Shehu Shagari, saying the takeover was necessary to save Nigeria, Africa's richest and most populous nation, from economic collapse.

The military intervention appeared at the time to enjoy enthusiastic support from a broad range of Nigeria's population.

Many intellectuals argued that the corruption and incompetence of the Shagari administration had made drastic action both necessary and inevitable. Traders, merchants and people in the streets welcomed the soldiers and looked forward to a quick improvement in their standard of living.

Growing Disappointment

Recently, however, there seems to be growing disappointment with both the military Government's approach and pace.

''Since coming to power, this Government has not found a single problem,'' said Dr. Olu Onagoruwa, a prominent lawyer and a longtime opponent of the Shagari administration. ''But it has managed to alienate the judiciary, the press, labor and students - all the groups that supported it just a few months ago.''

Critics of the military Government point out that it has yet to present its budget. Loan negotiations with the International Monetary Fund continue but Western economists say that Nigeria and the I.M.F. appear to be further apart now than during the final days of the Shagari administration.

Early indications that General Buhari would agree to devalue Nigeria's currency, liberalize trade and reduce domestic petroleum subsidies have so far not materialized. Prices Have Climbed

In addition, prices for food and other essential commodities, which fell in the first weeks after the coup largely because of the presence of soldiers in the marketplaces, have now returned to or exceeded their levels before the coup. Unemployment has been rising, and many of the imported raw materials and spare parts needed to keep factories running have been lacking.

Critics note further that political activity and even debate have been banned and some students organizations have been outlawed. There has been a clampdown on Nigeria's press, and the country's traditionally independent judiciary has also seen its role sharply diminished.

''At the moment we're looking at a clear movement toward authoritarian dictatorship,'' said Stanley N. Macebuh, executive editor of The Guardian, an independent newspaper that had often taken the Shagari administration to task. ''It's a trend that disturbs a lot of people, not least those who welcomed the change of government.''

Spokesmen for the military leadership maintain that they know what they are doing and refuse to be rushed. They deny the charges of inaction, saying that steps have been taken. Trials Being Prepared

The Government, they say, has put much energy into investigating the corruption of the Shagari administration and in preparing tribunals to try the accused, close to 500 of whom are now under detention.

Officials say about 2,000 illegal aliens have been ejected from the country and several thousand people have been detained in a crackdown on suspected criminals and Moslem extremists.

They say Nigeria's bloated bureaucracy has been streamlined through the dismissal of thousands of officials and civil servants.

Three weeks ago an agreement was reached in London on converting a part of Nigeria's uninsured trade debts into loans.

The Government's critics respond that the economic initiatives treat symptoms rather than causes and aid the larger issue of how to restructure Nigeria's economy.

A Western diplomat said General Buhari ''could have accomplished so much if he had moved quickly and boldly in the early days when his popularity was still so high and when he could have credibly blamed everything on Shagari.''

I agree with you on the punishment to corruption being nothing compared to gay. Those are part of the problems we have here in Africa and our dear Nigeria. We treat corruption with levity. That's why u see a thief of onion sentenced to 15yrs or more but the corrupt public holders sentenced to 6months imprisonment with the option of fine. I expect Obama to talk to us about issues like this and not asking us to support gay. Case study: while the Americans have punished those involved in the Halliburton scandal, Nigeria is yet to charge it's own citizens involved to court.

As per your facts, I don't know about it but I know for sure that Nigerians prefer to watch pornography that involves people of opposite sex than watching some crazy lesbians or gay.

Even you, I know u will prefer to watch a man and woman sex tape than watch a man&man or woman & woman sex tape.
I thank you for your calm and sensible response, it's something lacking on this forum. We may disagree greatly on this issue and I do not begrudge you for that. I am heterosexual but I will always stand for the rights of gays as I belive they have a fight to their lives so far as it does not affect the next person negatively, for years, humans have tried to set standard on what is right or not, in the 60's, it was inter racial marriage and just like this there was a lot of reasons against it, where is it today? ...we as nigerians have a lot of problems but our leaders are pointing to that shinny thing in the corner called gay rights and we are playing along while they rob us dry, forgetting that there has not been a single protest or Nigerian in this territory advocating for rights whatsoever, they are busy doing whatever they do in their private bedrooms, so why channel so much energy and hate on a non issue? Is according to Uhuru kenyatta, gay rights is a non issue, why does it warrant discussion in federal parliaments across africa puting our various problems in the back seat. As a continent, we can channel our energies in what people do in the privacy of their rooms that is going on somewhere even as we speak and can't stop or we can move to better things that ensure be bequeathed a better africa to our kids than we currently have. Thanks!

What is this one saying?

The fact that they dont allow gay rights does it make them any less successful than the west. The likes of South Africa that supports gay rights does it make them more successful than the rest.

Don't link success with approval of gay rights or corruption. Russia does not support gay rights does it make them any less successful.

Gay rights is Evil and the devil is trying to make it look like it is freedom which is linked to success.

Uhuru couldn't put it more better. "Let us develop and get to your level before we start thinking of Gay rights. Right now we have more pressing issues than gay rights".

An Idle hand is the devils workshop. African countries are too busy struggling with development than allow devil to take over. USA has developed to an extent where they are now Idle(no more development), the only thing is for them to be used as a devils workshop to spread evil all over the world.
you can boliviate all you want but the fact remains if Africans channel all their hate for gays who have done them no harm to the wicked leaders who are responsible for their sufferings and death, their lives might improve.

Shame on Obama. He knows Africa's position on this issue and shouldn't have raised it. There are other problems that are more pressing to us than issue of Gay.

Shame on you too for saying "we are among the highest consumers of gay porn in the world". Where did you get that fact from? You better grow up son and wise up. SMD for u.
NO! God bless obama for being true to his conviction, he should have even gone further to ask Africans why the punishment for gays is stiffer than corruption and which has been more detrimental to africa.

You are entitled to your own opinion and not your own facts. Those are the facts, you don't believe it, counter with better.

HiGod:


Shut that worthless mouth of yours before God strike it with parkinson fool.

I have lived in US and best countries in Europe and I can categorically tell you that Africans are more happier than your so called Western world citizens. How is your life better than those in Africa? I presumed cos your whole life revolves around debt- from student loan to mortgage for 35 after graduation. You finish paying the mortgage at age 70yrs and your children pick up the same useless and worthless life (vicious circle). All these things are paid for in Africa without borrowing money to send their children through University and of course their houses.

You all go to Africa to shout and scream about strange diseases and all that with your one sided media, please, could you permit me with my camera to go to your hospitals to show the whole world what you guys are silently enduring which are all sort of diseases that have never been heard in Africa continent.

If your life is truly better than people in Africa, how come your fellow Europeans are committing suicide at every passing seconds?

The only different is that your Govts see you guys as fools by giving you weekly handouts-welfare so as not to revolt against their extravagant lifestyles.

Get the Bleep out of here you gay.
you just conjured together worthless words and lies with shades of insult and think you made sense? You are actually going to compare life in advanced countries to africa? grin ; grin

Tell your leaders to make the punishment for gays which is not the greatest killer of Africans, synonymous or party synonymous to that of corruption and high level theft which is the greatest killer of Africans, and maybe you will witness some development and improvement in life expectancy.
