Niger Delta Leaders ask for allocation of oil blocs to natives, Ogoni clean-up, maritime university, 13 other issues from FG

At the two-hour closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, held earlier today, the Leaders and Stakeholders of the Niger Delta, led by elder statesman Chief Edwin Clark, presented a list of 16 issues for dialogue. 

The issues presented ranged from Infrastructure needs to the strengthening of institutions like the NDDC, allocation of oil blocs to natives of Niger Delta, maritime university, matters of fiscal federalism, Ogoni clean-up, employment opportunities for trained ex-militants and support for the internally displaced persons in the region.
 
Other demands includes, relocation of international oil companies with headquarters in Lekki and other places back to their areas of operations, manpower and human resources development.

The President noted that they are already looking into many of these issues and are also currently reviewing the implementation of the Niger Delta Amnesty Programme, to determine the shortcomings, and areas for reform.

Speaking to State House correspondents after the meeting, Chief Edwin Clark said they were well received by the President, adding that they were not at the Presidential Villa for a battle.
"We have no other country than Nigeria. We cannot continue to destroy the assets of the country and the ecosystem of our environment." he said.

Yes that's true, they've used the Niger delta oil to make a lot of billionaires in the North and West but all the Niger delta get is pollution of their environment. I'm not from there, but I feel for them. It's time for them to posses their possession. In Jesus name amen.

I'm here with hope to seek help. I'm a young lady in my twenties,trying to make my future better by going to school to become a graduate and get a job , but paying my school fees,hostel accommodation, feeding and buying my books is a problem and getting a job as a student schooling is very difficult. Any amount is very fine by me and I will greatly appreciate. I truly need help I suffered so much to get into school I don't want to defile my studies because of lack of funds. I hope someone will reach out to assist me. Thank you my email nnechichinne@yahoo.com

Why did they not make these demands to Goodluck Jonathan, a son of the soil ( Niger Delta) ? All they did was loot into their private pocket. EK Clarke Oloshi, Oloriburuku , ship

It's a welcome development. Democracy is about negotiation.
For the purpose of clarity there is nothing new in that list, they were all projects initiated or started by GEJ administration but Buhari/ Nothernerns had either canceled, blocked or stoped majority of those; example is the PIB, Maritime university, etc.

If you are not a mad man..u will realise that this same oil blocks issue was part of reasons why all the old school generals ganged up against Jonathan..the truth to almost loosing their license almost came out,if not for all you foolish youths shouting Sai baba..unfortunately not every youth can sing d same tune anymore,just under 2years..Jonathan may have a kind heart individually..but collectively,d people of Niger delta and militants ain't smiling...I said it before Buhari must go on his knees to beg these people and he has started...fulfill their demands or???? U knw d rest

Too wetin, so na only northerners suppose get oil block? See slavery in the making, better reset your thinking.

This is coming a bit late and it's imperative that the presidenth do something urgently about it.The Federal government should cancel all oil block licence in the hand of private owners and return to Federal Government just like in Dubai where individuals cannot hold National assets, get the foreign oil companies to come up with a developmentall plan for this region with immediate effect and implementation .I suggest the President recruit sound intellectual of Nigeria origin as advisers on various developmental plans via some competent management companies around the world on probono

FRESH said...

Sorry for Nigeria. So oil blocks are the reason why they kept the country on the ground? Young people will come here supporting crap! NDDC? 13% derivation? ministry of Niger Delta? Amnesty programme? Host community grants by oil companies? Corporate social responsibility projects by oil companies? Niger Delta! You guys are your own enemies

Ridiculous!!! How is it possible that saint GEJ was president for 6yrs and they never agitated for all these. Buhari is barely in his second year and there is a FULL list.....hehehehe!!! If everyone becomes this myopic, Nigeria will be ran to the ground. But anyway he said CHANGE, so give it to them

-D great anonymous now as Vivian Reginalds

I am ashamed of these Niger Deltans because when their son was in government for 6 good years he can not provide all these their demands. Mention one vital achievement of Jonathan government to the Niger Delta region.
