Can I please crave the indulgence of my dear brothers and sisters in this forum on this issue
OIL! WHO OWNS IT, NIGERIA OR NIGER-DELTA?,
I believe a right thinking Nigerian who lives in Nigeria and sees all that unfolds during the so-called military and self styled Democracy practice in Nigeria will agree with me that If I as the man that questions you on the real owner of the oil, found the land that houses the most populous black people in the world is owned and should be given to the people of the oil rich region.
Because the so called leaders of the country called Nigeria use the revenue gotten from the exploration of the oil for personal effects,
Because the government of Nigeria fails to feed the Goose that lays the Egg.
Because the Government of Nigeria sees Niger delta as a minority in contest amidst the three big tribe
I know you might asked how about 13% derivation fund!
Can you please compare the terrain of Oil rich Niger-Delta to any part of Nigeria? No far differs, The cost of Laying Foundation in Brass Bayelsa State, will be used to Survey and finish the same house in Lagos.
Can you please come down to Creek and sees how battered the roof of houses built there are because of Gas Flaring
And also sees the killing of Crabs and fishes by Oil spills by The Oil companies,
All this neglect by Governments and Oil companies operating in the Niger delta so much demand more than 50% talk less of 13%. For the loss and neglect of the region demands more, I mean more to repair the pains and destruction caused by oil activities, Environmental effects,
No one in the region wants to wake and hear that there is kidnap here and there, and if no lasting solution is not instituted, the trend of kidnap will be upward and i pray we will be out of this.
I think and believe many people shares the same with me, that [size=8pt][/size]THE PEOPLE OF NIGER DELTA SHOULD BE GIVEN TOTAL CONTROL OF THIS GOD GIVEN RESOURCES (OIL),
Thanks and God bless.
