: Why Is Nigeria govt Given Imo And Abia Oil Derivation ?
You need to junk the useless and idiotic efforts you expand on the inconsequential and moronic satellite photographs. Ondo has never had crude oil and will never have any crude oil.
Please educate yourself on the history of crude oil in the protectorates that formed Nigeria. It is very shameful Shell D’arcy labored so hard in 1948 to locate crude oil in Ondo but found nothing. Yet the greedy sons of Dam in Nigeria had the audacity to include the same Ondo as the crude oil producing state. What a fallacy.
Akingbola is from Ondo too. they can ask any ondo person, if my statement are true, even agagu. everyone in ondo state , even nigeria knows this. But Ngozi iweala should offer apology to Ondo state from many years they have been denied our oil revenue have gone to delta state.
Ondo state needs an Official Apology from Ngozi Iweala.
What I am telling you, is that the place delta state is claiming to be its own is in Ondo state. It is Ilaje land. And not delta state. the only way delta state can make claim to that money is if Ilaje land are not in Ondo state. But everybody in Nigeria knows where Ilaje people live. Ondo state.
What Ngozi Iweala did was wrong and she should offer an apology to the people of Ondo state. You dont pay peter to rob paul. And delta too has to agree that it was a mistake by Ngozi iweala ministry. or she claim delta state. what it means is that ondo state produce more than 20% of nigeria oil and not delta state as claim. Flow stations that delta has, produce less .
@ Becomrich. What has Ilaje got to do with the fact that Ondo should not collect derivation for the little oil they produce yet they collect billions. By the time Delta state claims back the few wells in Ondo, its nothing for you. I know you are planning to move to Benin Republic with our oil but it no go work.
You if you say delta state own that creek, which is a lie. The reason why it is a lie. Is if you look at the blue line that area is Ikale area. Are you people saying that there is no Ilaje people in Ondo state. that they are all in delta state. The answer is that can not be true. Every nigerian knows that.
So that creek separate ondo and delta state. Like you see, the so call "delta oil" really belong to ondo state.
I cant find anything in abia state. Sorry.
Let me be honest with you, the nigeria govt is telling a lie about oil because they want to keep nigeria one by force.
You see the newspaper are telling lies too because they want to keep the north and been able to circulate their newspapers in the north.
Businessmen are doing the same to keep the north to been able to take thier money. same thing with the banks, but sanusi knows that. too many lies about oil. How can you drill for 40 years and it would be the same. It is just to decieve the north. there is oil but not what they claim.
Most of the story of new oil discovery are lies to deceive the north to remain in nigeria so that newspaper , banks and business can continue milking them.
Why the north think there is oil. so they think they should remain, the southern businessmen decieve to be able to continue to milk them. Even church are into this thing to get tithe and offering. By the time the north wakes up to discover the truth, they would be paying taxes to take care of people in bayelsa state. Mugu catch mugu. North be mugu.
If you mean this one. It is at the border of rivers state and Imo state. But Imo state get 2.5% of the derivation revenue. That does not make sense and rivers state has dispute over this things. and you can see river state town very close.
If something is not of commercial quantity , why should you get paid for it.
BECOMERICH, OR WHATEVER YOU CALL YOURSELF, I HAVE TWO QUESTIONS FOR YOU;
1. YOU CLAIM THERE IS NO OIL IN ABIA AND IMO STATES, DID YOU PARENTS EVER MENTIONED TO YOU ABOUT ANY PLACE CALLED "OWAZA" OR "OHAJI EGBEMA" IN ABIA AND IMO STATES RESPECTIVELY?
2. WHERE WERE THE OPC DURING THE BIAFRAN/NIGERIAN WAR?
WHEN YOU ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS CORRECTLY, I WILL THEN REVEAL MY IDENTITY AND ASK FOR OUR MEETING IN ANY PLACE OF YOUR CHOICE,
BUT FOR NOW, I WILL ADVISE YOU TO REFRAIN FROM MAKING CLAIMS YOU CAN'T DEFEND,
NOTE: NDIGBO ARE NOT KNOWN AS COWARDS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, AND FOR THE RECORDS "OPC" ARE NOT WELL FEED YET, TO FACE NDIGBO!
Be good to people. If you dont treat people well. OPC also have the right to take over your shops.business , and claim it thier own, and never give you back, you would see how it would affect the south east economy.
Dont assume they would shut down your business for 1 month OPC dont do that any more. THEY TAKE OVER AND NEVER GIVE BACK., they would claim it and never return it back to you and give it to OPC members as thier own share of the national cake. So call Jonathan now to make the change.
Vainglory , Do you think the OPC needs to make the life of Igbo in Yorubaland unbearable before you listen. Or do they need to burn down Orji Kalu properties before you stop the joke. why do people need to use violent on you before you make change.
You know what OPC can do to the Igbos in Yoruba. I dont have to tell you.
If look like at the money Abia and Imo state have collect from this Oil derivation scam. Which they want it to continue is more than the whole of yorubaland. Even nearly the same with the North.
That why the north have to stand up and raise for thier people and become majority, and remove the edo, delta Yorubas from nigeria. You can have the Igbo people. And it is also good for the igbo people they can easy 419 the north.
Abia N9 billion;
Imo, N6.5 billion
The post-amnesty plans of the Federal Government were given more teeth yesterday as the Federal Executive Council (FEC) approved about N200 billion for the execution of 44 projects in the nine states that make up the Niger Delta region. The states are Akwa Ibom, Abia, Bayelsa, Cross River, Edo, Delta, Imo, Ondo and Rivers. The projects involve the construction of bridges, roads, hospitals, provision of potable water, environmental impact assessment, among others, as reported exclusively by THISDAY last week. Information and Communi-cation Minister, Professor Dora Akunyili, who disclosed this at the end of the FEC meeting, said the projects would go a long way in opening up the Niger Delta and creating jobs in the region. The minister said the projects would be executed by the Niger Delta Development Commis-sion (NDDC) and the Petro-leum Technology Development Fund (PTDF). Although the minister did not disclose the source of the funding of the projects, THISDAY gathered that they would be funded partly from Federal Government's share of the $2 billion excess crude shared a fortnight ago among the three tiers of government – local, state and Federal. A breakdown of the projects showed that Abia has four projects valued at N9 billion; Akwa Ibom, four projects valued at N10.2 billion; Bayelsa, six projects valued at N29 billion; Cross Rivers, three projects valued at N6.6 billion; and Delta, six projects valued at N50 billion. Others are Edo, three projects valued at N7 billion; Imo, four projects valued at N6.5 billion; Ondo, three projects valued at N22.5 billion; and Rivers, 11 projects valued at 35.6 billion. The projects also include a N14.9 billion contract for the development of the newly established Federal Polytech-nic of Oil and Gas, sited in Bayelsa and another N5.72 billion for the upgrade of the Petroleum Technology Institute (PTI) sited in Effrum, Delta State. Akunyili also said FEC set aside N412.4 million for the construction of six units of two-bedroom duplex for the National College of Petroleum Studies in Kaduna the National College of Petroleum Studies, Kaduna, which trains senior executive level manpower for the oil and gas sector. FEC, the minister said, also awarded contracts in the sum of $785,968.00 for the supply and installation of radiology equipment for hospitals in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Akunyili explained that council approved the contract to enable the FCT administration improve its healthcare delivery system through the provision of adequate modern facilities to the hospitals in the territory. In addition, she said, council considered and approved the memo by the President for the award of contract for the supply of one unit M1-17 Search And Rescue (SAR) helicopter for use by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) at the cost of $14.5 million. This became imperative because of the great expansion in the activities of the agency over the years to enable it enhance its statutory functions.
No problem at all. Jonathan may like to join you if you assure him the post of President of Benin Republic. By the time Ijaws leave Ondo state, the only states with oil derivation will be Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta, Abia, Imo and Edo. I know that it is bitter for you to swallow but sorry that is the situation. And for your information Delta and Edo are not interested in joining you to Benin Republic.
What do ijaw people do, they are fishermen. And fishermen go where the fishes are. So the ijaw men are not really from the area. They immigrated to the area.
if they want to leave they can go and leave. And I can tell you, they would tell Jonathan to his face. He can remain in nigeria. That place is own by ilaje people. please verify with the ondo state government. Ilaje people do not want to leave. Go and find out your history. The ownership is not in dispute, that why the name are Yoruba names. That have been settled by the supreme court. they were even denied right to citizen of ondo state just some few year ago. but unlike many state in nigeria where immigrate do not have right. The ondo state government appointed them into position. Verify my story.
If you dont believe my story Bimbo Oloyede of Channels Television(formerly with NTA) can comfirm my story.
why try to make fun of igbo people. I would not do so. I respect them.
It is Obvious to see Ngozi Iweala hate Yoruba people. When really it was a Yoruba man Obasanjo that gave her that position. What a world.some people claim they are born again christain. Is that what born again christain do?
OPC are two fractions Fasehun( from Ondo state) and the Gani Adams ( from Ondo state). I should know I am from Ondo royal home. It is important to note, they have branches and thousand of members. So Jonathan Goodluck for fairness and justice should with temporary stop the payment of oil derivation by the ministry of finance to Imo and Abia and just the disputed area between delta and ondo state and bayelsa state. To avoid any break down of law and order over the issue.
Here is my point Imo and abia are collecting oil derivation, but do you see any oil on the satellite picture no. Also check the date on the satellite picture. They are just tricking you. The national assembly can send people to those two state and ask Orji the governor to show them the 1000 oil well he claim he has.
The sad thing about it, what was Ngozi Iweala role in this scam. And the national assembly need to bring her to Abuja , and explain. Should Abia and Imo state revenue should be deducted for all the 9 years that up to the national assembly. Should delta state pay back ondo state too?
You would also notice that bayelsa state is owning delta state money. Ngozi Iweala need to come put clear what happened. If she claim she is a christain?
You would see the piles and others facilities in that place.
For you to know the hate some of this people have for the Yoruba people. Even while obasanjo a Yoruba man was the one who appointed them. they now remove oil derivation to ondo state and gave it to delta state.
Look at this picture.
Everybody in nigeria know that picture 2 is the correct map of ondo state. Not picture 1.
If you look at satellite pictures. you would see why that bottom of ondo state and Delta state is so. Because there is a creek that separate the two state. You can trace that curve on the bottom of ondo state on satellite pictures,
