Why Are Nigerians Happy That Mend Is Destroying The Country? This Baffles Me!

Seems Nigerians are happy at the activities of MEND over the years! Can someone explain to me what Nigerians are realy made of? A group is destroying the entire fabric of a nation of 120 million or more and all the people can do is to look on and agree to the activities of these few all in the name of fighting for their rights?

The only people in nigeria that are not supporting MEND are the Yorubas and the awusas, and it's no coindidence that they are the only benefactors from the sufferings of the people of the Niger Delta. The creator of this thread and the first poster are all Yorubas, so no surprise about their comments.

paralyse the oppressive Nigerian system. But the problem is FEAR people FEAR too much becos they believe they

gonna die not that they don kno how to fight but na FEAR catch dem. Wen we eliminate di FEAR things will be ok.

Some are ethnicists who would not be happy even if Nigeria prospered because what they really want is tribal homeland.

Some are genuine but misguide Deltan-Nigerians embolden by the negative tripe continually spewed out by some Nigerians in the diasporas.

Some are pan-Africanists who see Nigeria as a major obstacle to their vision of one Africa because many of their members are tribalistic Nigerians who use Pan-Africanism to disguise their agenda.

What Delta needs, are advocates to champion the idea of selecting the aria for federal government development. Moreover, a groundswell of opinion aimed at making Shell liable for damages to the environment. We in the Delta do not need militants. Even with the best intentions, militants can never bring about change for the better. If MEND is allowed to go on, in the next five years, they will start To Molest women, kill old people and chop off the hands of children just as rebels did in Sierra Leone. When this occurs, those people crowing support so loudly now will not feel sorry or regret, instead they will turn around and say that the people of Delta deserved to have their women Molested and the hands of their children chopped off because Deltans were too silly too afraid to rise up and help MEND. If you doubt me, see how rabid they already are and how utterly drunk and irrational their mad statements.

It boils down to our leaders destroying the country and they will stop at nothing to exploit system.

The MEND of a thing is actually a smokescreen. The main players are the big generals and politicians.

The reason is simple!

Nigerians are tired of Nigeria as is. They are tired of self serving politicians and Northern Oligarchs.

Anything that would change the status quo is welcome.

MEND is changing the status quo. They are proving that while the government oppresses the people, they can assist the people in oppressing the government!

Without question, the reason a MEND exists in the first place is because the federal government has failed on all fronts, be it security, justice, economics, management or whatever. The FG has failed. So MEND is a reaction to Government's failure.

Ask what the Militants have given back from all the ransoms they have been collecting "on behalf" of their people. If try to fight injustice through illegal means,cant you brand it by making people happy. I am not justifying the negligence of the Government. But I believe Nigeria cant continue like this when some people will hide under fighting for justice and enrich themselves. Politician inclusive they are worse than the Militants.
