Yes o. . . . Fash is the man. The greatest inspiration to our generation. But EIA is sine qua non for oil operations in Rivers State:

What do we do about the gas flaring? Yes lets stop it immediately, because some peeps fail to realise that crude-oil is pumped with gas contained, and the gas must either be captured or flared. Unfortunately, the British cowboys who set up the infrastructure in the 1950's set it up so that gas is flared, and any ban on flaring gas requires complete infrastructural overhaul which will take years, thats why they keep extending the date when the law on gas flaring comes into effect. We done hear.

I am glad you mention Fashola cos Fash is a man after my heart. . . . an irredeemable federalist who has always fought for power devolvement for local people, and no doubt, if Fashola was made President today with all the requisite powers, he would instantly implement the Federalism and Resource control that some of his lobotomised followers like yourself rail against.

I can now say that instead of JP Phillips making any sense with his outbursts and truckload of crap, Ibime has clarified issues succinctly. And for all those lover of truth and conscience, hear him. He obviously knows more than about the Niger Delta than JP Phillips.

Oh D.S.P  Alamieyeseigha >>>> The man in question!.

He is tough like an ancient warrior

His dread turns a city into tales of horror

His rage is the anathema that tames enemies of democracy

He saved and dropped the uniform of military aristocracy

His voice is replica of his people’s dream

He sits on the seat of authority where power beams

He was perturbed when men shed tears

And revived them from slippery slopes of doubt and fear

His hilarious laughter is the reverberating sound of an excited crowd

On his head hanga halo and crown

His bowler hat is the symbol of “resource control” struggle

He soars with the wings of an eagle

He dances at victory before it arrives

He fought wars, conquered and came back alive

His garments is like a royal robe of ancient duke

His horizon is surrounded by flowers like the morning dew

He runs with the strength of a horse

He took a star medal in Nigeria Air force

He walks relentlessly with the raindrops of sweat

He sips wine that taste sour and sweet

His eyes gleams with lions courage for conquest

He keeps an open arm to the people’s request

He cuts the bushes of Yenagoa with great valour

He turned the city to paradise against underdevelopment squalor

His majestic steps are strides of great achievement

He held the sceptre of Bayelsa State Government

Where men came to seek for favour in his mantle

His house was full of armour bearers and knights

He brought light to his people in their darkest night.

He is a man of great confidence and covenant

To defend the Ijaws both small and prominent

He caused a national hullabaloo with his lions roar

He is a God-fearing man with dignity and integrity

A trait of individualism, peace loving and flexibility

His leadership style makes him stand out in the nation

He is a man that lives with a great name

Diepreye, Solomon Peter, Alamieyeseigha has made fame

Honourable enthroned, governor general of Niger Delta.

He is a man of his words and revered by the kings and elders

And chiefs as the Olotu of Olotus and Amaebidowei of Amassoma kingdom

Because he is a pioneer democrat that have fought for his people’s freedom

D.S.P is a man with the mind of the progressives

Great land marks are visible in Bayelsa State by D.S.P’s prerogative

I am not a political animal as politics is not really my forte however, I felt the need to say something here as I believe everyone should be aware of events around them, irrespective.  Also, I do believe that Nigerian RESOURCES needs to be shared EQUITABLY to avoid situation as this that destabilizes our country and thus, our economy.  Therefore, the Nigerian Government should examine its conscience (if it has one) and answer truthfully to God that its doing everything possible and all the RIGHT THINGS FOR THE BENEFIT OF IT'S PEOPLE.  Also, it owes us an honest and intelligent National debate (for the first time in this country) on how it intends to stabilize our country and EQUITABLY share the revenues from its natural resources since INEQUALITIES are the issues, destabilizing our BLESSED country.  Get me right, every society has it own issues on inequalities but there are MARKED inequalities in Nigerian society that needs to be seriously and, seriously addressed.

Blaming the victim is something we've learnt from colonial masters and the likes of KKK. FG has a 60% share in all oil contracts, the other 40% is for the oil companies. ND leaders do not run the FG - the FG alone has set and broken enddates for gas flaring and levy's only the lightest punishment for environmental disasters (the FG bearing a 60%, doesn't want to fine itself).

However, I welcome the day we'll be able to blame our leaders as you very ignorantly suggest; because on that day, we will have 100% resource control.

A farm in the ND, yes thats oil not water and, yes thats a flare in the background.

Just open your mouth, shandy dey come. Mend and your jaguda leaders go deliver your dues just like they've been doing.

I see you Ignored the Lasepa links and side stepped the fact that it's your leaders responsibility to enact and enforce environmental laws.

You're picking gaping holes alright?

And again I repeat:

By your logic, we should also stop allocating 50% of all revenue derived from our resources to FG since all they would do is embezzle the money.

Lets take it further. . .  infact Britain should have never granted Nigeria independence since we were clearly incapable of managing our own affairs. . .

Instead of facing YOUR GOVERNMENT who have the jurisdiction to fight corruption, you are facing the victims of the Niger-Delta who only want their just due.

It seems some people have been lobotomised.

Yes o. . .  we can pick gaping holes in silly arguments all day.

Of what use is your resource control when the dividends dey chill inside private foreign bank account and financing mansions in any land but yours?

I guess it's silly season because you people don begin reason like mumu with heads buried inside sand.

And this is the caliber of the kind of people wey dey yarn on behalf of the delta? No wonder the delta is bleeped up.

If they want to drink the crude-oil, let them drink it. We will cross that bridge when we get there.

LASEPA Threatens To Shut Dangote, Others

March 02, 2009 14:35, 142 views

The Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) has threatened to shut down Dangote Agro-Sack Company and nine others located in Ikeja over environmental nuisance.

The companies have already been served abatement of environmental pollution notice under the LASEPA Edict, No.9 of 1997.

Other companies served abatement notices are: Boulos Enterprises Limited and Standard Industrial Company Limited, both on Acme Road, Ogba, Multichem Industries Limited, Dorchester, Strides Vitaling Limited, Cormart Nigeria Limited and Michelin.

And about resource control.

I said something about representation and governance per your elected and appointed leaders but you conveniently side stepped it. They are the folks in charge, they are your leaders and even given and with full resource control, every dime still got to go trough these clowns, not you or MEND, these clowns are your chief executives and they call the shots in their respective states.

Your resource control argument don't mean jack because all roads still lead to the incompetent buffoons and thieves you call leaders and just like the rest of the country, your destiny is in the hands of crooks, thieves, enemies of your people and humanity.

You guys really need to quit acting dumb and clueless

There is no moral compunction for any Niger-Deltan to address these arguments borne out of superficial knowledge of the situation in ND, but I might as well indulge you since you share ties with Eleme people.

(1.) It is a strategic and tactical mistake to bring the fight to ND leaders at this stage. Timiepriye Sylva alone can raise enough boys to chase MEND out of Bayelsa for good and derail the struggle indeterminably. It has been done before. Ask Odili what he did to the NDPVF before the formation of MEND

On the other hand, despite their wickedness, these ND leaders do serve a purpose to the struggle and are regularly railroaded into buying arms for the boys.

Their comeuppance will only be served when the major aggressor (Nigeria) has been dealt with. You cannot fight yourself in the presence of an enemy, neither can Mr Goat fight his enemy Mr Pig in the presence of Mr Lion. They will save their enmity for a later date. Even as we speak, Odili cannot go to PH without heavy arms, if at all.

On the other hand, if those who steal 50% allocation (FG) were honest themselves, then they can implement the right laws and procedures to bring the 13% thieves (Odili et al) to book. What has the FG done for you with their 50% allocation? Infact, ND Governors such as Amaechi, Duke, Sylva, Ohakim, Uduaghan and Oshiomohle who have actually done something are exonerated by the actions of their 50% cousins. Bode George, OBJ, IBB and other federal players always top the list of looters and are big fry compared to their state-level compadres.

A thief is a thief is a thief. . . but you who have a thief in your midst have no moral authority to condemn my struggle because of the thief in my midst, especially when you (Nigeria) have the legal jurisdiction to bring my thief to justice, and I dont. You forego your legal authority to book my thief, then expect me to pick up arms against my thief, knowing that he will fight back and derail my struggle completely.

(2.) You cannot compare actions of the right honourable Fashola with what applies in ND. Picking rubbish from the street is not the same as stopping gas-flaring. Oil coys are already mandated to clean up spills, but lack of insincerity means that enforcement is a problem as these companies get away with paying paltry fines at court. Gas-flaring has already been outlawed at Federal level, but FG keeps postponing the date at which the law comes into effect. It is hardly wise to expect Amaechi to decree that gas-flaring must stop tomorrow when FG has already done so, but refuses to enforce it. Do you think FG will allow ND Governors to kill the cow which gives them milk> Thats not even under State jurisdiction sef.

(3.) Yes. That is the premise of federalism.

@ibime and Ono

It is only fool that will deny the fact that other parts of Nigeria don't have their own issues with bad leadership. Ono i agree with u that Obj is the mother of crooks but one that stands outs is the Niger delta issue.

A question i would like you guys to answer

1. Why is the fight not taken to the doorstep of past and present ND leaders Somebody like Odili or Ibori should be hung from a tree.

2. Is it not in the jurdisdiction of the state and local governments to make environmental laws

3. Is not the job of the state or local government to deal with local issues.

and many more question as we proceed.

Ono, there is no reason to be had with imbeciles. No Niger-Deltan should even bother himself with this bunch of crap. We might as well post pictures of all Governors and Ministers and highlight them as the cause of our collective misery in Nigeria. What that has to do with the contract we signed upon joining the Nigerian Federation in 1960 is another story altogether. "Resource Control" and "Development" are not interchangable terms. The leaders depicted are partly responsible for our lack of "development", but they have nothing to do with our lack of "resource control". Ibori, Odili, Alams and the rest will get their just deserts in due course.

I haven't taken time to go through all that JP Phillips wrote - simply glanced through the write up, saw some worthless stuff, and moved on.

I observed that in all of his write up, he never made mention of anything about the ND since the days of Oloibiri-1. He drew conclusions based on 'recent'' events in the country - since the days of OBJ. That's awfully shallow. He should go back to the very beginning. Until then, all of his write up is just another piece of crap.

He also talked about Port Harcourt like someone who lived there in the early 70's. My guy, many things dey shele for that place wey you sef, when you come around you go bow.

And talking about thieving governors during the OBJ presidency, he mentioned Ibori, Alams and co, as if they were the worst offenders at the time. We all know that OBJ was the king kong of his presidency. He was the alpha lord, who, as petroleum resources minister, stashed billions of dollars and other forex to resuscitate his moribound Otta Farm. He also used proceeds from oil block sales to build his ''hiltop mansion'' at Ibara in Abeokuta. It is a well known fact that he sold quite a lot of juicy oil blocks to his cronies and associates at the time.
