Ijaw Youth Council makes U-turn, vows response to Jonathan’s election loss

Former President, Goodluck Jonathan

In a dramatic twist, the Ijaw Youth Council, turning away from its earlier stance where it commended President Goodluck Jonathan for accepting defeat at the poll and promised not to resort to attacking pipeline and oil infrastructure, has vowed a hostile response.

The President of the group, Udengs Eradiri, had earlier said that the group would not resort to attacking pipeline and oil infrastructure following Mr. Jonathan’s loss at the polls and pledged loyalty to the incoming administration.

But in a dramatic twist, the spokesperson for the group, Eric Omare, said the group was not satisfied with the turn out of the polls and will seek a new direction for the struggle for resource control.

“The IYC has resolved to call for a National Congress of all Ijaw Youths on Sunday, the 5th of April, 2015 at Tuomo Community in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State where all the Ijaw Youths of the Niger-Delta region would meet to review the outcome of the Presidential elections.

“IYC will take a position and determine the next direction of our struggle for self-determination and resource control as enshrined in the historic Kaiama Declaration.

“We call on all Ijaw Youths to be alert and ready to heed the call to the service of the Ijaw nation at this crucial time of our history and struggle for survival in the Nigerian state in the face of the grand conspiracy between the north and a section of the south west to continue to suppress and exploit the resource of the Ijaw nation.

“We recall that when President Jonathan, an Ijaw and from the South South won an internationally acclaimed free, fair and credible election in 2011, General Buhari and his people never at any time congratulated or supported President Jonathan.

“Instead they killed hundreds of innocent Nigerians and fought President Jonathan from the day he became the Acting President of Nigeria in 2010 until the north conspired with a section of the south west to take over the Presidency from President Jonathan and the minorities of the south-south in an election fraught with irregularities.

“It is also significant to note that none of the northern socio-cultural groups such as the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) and others congratulated or supported the administration of President Jonathan.

“Northerners created Boko Haram and blamed it on President Jonathan deliberately to incite the northern populace against President Jonathan and make him unpopular in the 2015 election so as to take back power in a grand conspiracy with a section of the south west.

“Therefore, the April 5, 2015 meeting of all Ijaw youths would determine the position of the Ijaw Youths on the 2015 Presidential election and our next line of action,” Mr. Omare said.

  • Ken

    This is a good one. Injustice cant stand. We should not have a better yesterday. The country through a gang up of North and Sw denied the region that feeds the nation a second tenure. God is alive.

    • deltavoice

      Shut your gutter mouth. When the yar’adua was incapacitated, who fought for Jonathan? When the powers that be oppressed and humiliated Ebele Jonathan, it was the westerners that stood up against the injustice.
      Where were those rascals/terrorists? What did they do?

    • Layo

      You are mad. Go back to your creek and rot there.

    • New Nigerian

      No…The North literally feed the nation, that is why it is called the bread basket of the nation. Enough of this madness already – give your head a shake and get on with life!

  • Umar Nuhu Galadima

    Eyyah! No free money for u guys.

    • the truth

      u mean no free money for you. The points they raised are facts and true. Did buhari concede defeat? did hundreds of people die after that election? who created the boko haram menace to destabilize the gej govt? did the north and west collude to take power? don’t this people have a legitimate right to control their own resources? If this oil was located in your village or in the north do u think they would be so magnanimous to entertain the rest of Nigeria? During the coup of 1966 when ironsi was killed and Murtala Mohammed was about to lead the north out of Nigeria didnt the uk envoy tell them the importance of oil in that meeting with danjuma and gowon?are the ijaws not marginalized? is the ijaw land not polluted due to this oil drillage? when u begin to answer these questions then i will take u seriously

      • New Nigerian

        where de you come up with these stuffs? and for what purpose? what are you trying to do? election is won and lost, if you do not like Jonathan to concede – well he has. And even if he did not concede he would have been told that he lost…he conceded because it is the adult thing to do and the hand writing was on the wall anyway…enough said

  • the truth

    Gbam. All the points they raised if you are unbiased are true and a fact. Their struggle continues

  • Harry

    Bunch of losers and dreamers. Nigeria is bigger than any one else, if u fucked with Nigeria u will lose at the end.

    • EkeneChristian

      which nigeria..mr man nigeria is nothing but a zoo..one nigeria is only bcos of ijaw oil…mad people

  • Red Lion

    Yes what do you expect from Ijaws who take stealing to be smartness, no more money to steal to spend on girls, indian hemp,alcohol and nite clubs. owwwh abuja will soon have some sanity.

  • the truth

    great points raised. These issues must be addressed before any going forward. These people are agitating for a just cause.

    • Chris1408

      How come these issues weren’t addressed when GEJ was there? He had more than 6 years to right whatever was wrong in the region. All of a sudden, they realized their region is suffering. Mumu people.

      • the truth

        Mr chris i have always respected u, but for u to call a set of people mumu(stupid) is appaling. I would take it this was a rash comment and u didnt mean it that way

        • Chris1408

          Not the whole group my brother, those planning trouble now. They should have made the request for development when their son was there and had the power to effect change. If change wasn’t effected in 6 years of GEJ rule, they can only blame themselves. That’s what I mean my brother. I’m not insulting anyone

          • New Nation

            GBAM!

  • Chris1408

    Make dem start Wahala, Wahala go finish dem. They love to dwell in the dirty creek, they’ll continue to wallow in despair, it’s their lifestyle. Yeye people

    • the truth

      u would not understand because u have not taken a stroll to the niger delta before. a region that gives the nation 93% of its income is subjected to this kind of treatment. Be fair for once

      • Sokka

        And their brother GEJ didn’t have enough time to attend to their concerns? If you think that GMB is just another leader that would indulge your excesses then I feel sorry for you already… take if from me those times are over come May 30th.

      • Usher

        Bro am from River State and the question should be directed to 6yrs of GEJ’s rule. What have he done to arrest the environment? Asari and Tompolo with all their billions what have they given back to their people? Do not be deceived. I root for resource control and all that but not heading to militancy to acheive it.

        • the truth

          and how has dialogue worked before now? is it the adaka boro park that is in port-harcort or the ijaw plaque in iwofe. Forget about asari, boy loaf and tompolo they are not in the equation now. U and i know the north fought against gej presidency due to those expiring oil licenses. How can 86% of oil blocks belong to northerners. Now tell me where is the justice

          • Usher

            Bro I don’t know much about oil block allocation stuffs but if thats the truth then its bad.
            I am only again militancy as it will help no one especially most of us with businesses all over the place.

          • Nigerian Boy( Banjo )

            I am not in total support of the degradation of the ND,i feel for the because they cant plant on their own land,no good water etc,the question i want you to ask yourself is ,what has those who said they are fighting for the region, what has they achieve fighting for the region? did the status quo remain or it changed? Asari,Tompola Boyloaf etc, no one who know if they did not come out saying they are fighting for there region. Charity they say begin from home

          • New Nation

            The question remains what has JonaTAN done to alleviate the sufferings of the ND people in six years? Name any of the villages that have 24/7 clean water with power supply and decent accommodations for the villagers in 6 years of Jona’s reign?

          • New Nigerian

            …You must know that Buhari does not have an oil block….and you must also know that 400,000+ barrels of crude oil per day have been continuously pumped by powerful Niger Deltan since 2011 to date..this is no secret. So oil block is even liability, because you may own the block but someone else is “stealing” the oil once it comes out of it….all that is wrong. If you have facts to wrongful ownership of oil blocks, be sure to just publish it on Sahara Reporters or anyone and don’t worry we would all pick it up on it and flag it to those who would ensure we get it bak for ALL Nigerians.

          • Tamuno-Opubo Cookey-Gam

            There is no justice but the Northern domination has history in how the nation was set-up around independence, unpatriotic behaviour by some people of the various tribes, and subsequent military domination of the polity.

      • Chris1408

        Hahaha, I grew up in Otowodo, right beside Ovie palace. So I know the area very well and We are all brothers. If GEJ didn’t solve the problems or initiate some changes, who do you blame? Let’s be honest

        • New Nation

          Spot on!

      • New Nation

        But Jona should understand better. what has he done to turn the creeks to a small Dubai during his wasted 6 years of governance?

        • the truth

          The moment he does it, u would be the first to come on here to say he is an ethnic president just focusing on his people. Weren’t u already calling him an ijaw president

          • GOODBYEtoBADLUCK

            When you add up the 13% derivation for Niger Delta States, the budget for the Ministry of Niger Delta and NDDC since 2010, you will discover that GEJ waste money more than a drunken sailor

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            A matter of presupposition and conjecture, @the truth

            The stark reality is that he did not, but instead did a massive land grab of the ‘dry’ land in Otuoke for his own purpose and pushed the villagers further out into the swamps.

            Not only was he greedy; he was CALLOUSLY GREEDY!

            Why are you here trying to justify the asinine actions? Tribal considerations?

      • New Nigerian

        Not 93%, high but not 93%…and we just gave 6 years of our collective lives (177m of us) under the leadership of Niger Delta and what did we get in return?

        Same Niger Delta that was 6 years ago, 35,540 dead in the North east (in 4 years alone), 400,000 barrels of crude oil diverted per day, $100billions+ missing, stolen or unaccounted for, $200billion mismanaged in 4 years

        So what are you saying? We know Buhari would be a better Niger Delta man than the shun-of-the-shoil and if election have not been rigged in the Niger Delta, Buhari would have won every creek hands down

      • SAM .A

        What did the governors in Niger Delta do with their Massive monthly ALLOCATION & their IGR ?

    • EkeneChristian

      rubbish..you fools shall see

    • New Nation

      That reminds me, where is HOLY WAHALA? Someone should pls look for him. The battle has been won. I just love reading his post during the struggle against the clueless one.The victory is here!

    • Tamuno-Opubo Cookey-Gam

      don’t generalize their shortcomings to all Ijaw people. This present crop of so-called jaw militants aren’t in any way fighting for the Ijaw peoples; they are fighting for themselves. I hope they are crushed militarily, arrested, tried, and sentenced accordingly when the time is right.

      • Chris1408

        Thank you and that’s so true. They are opportunists

      • SAM .A

        Go & check their excesses,take their identify & forward it , when they blast the pipeline they are smoking all of u out of the creek, when Federal power comes down to fish them out, innocent will share out of their stupidity . Please tell them to seek for peace , instead of setting their house on fire.

  • Godfrey Etokebe

    On TOTAL RESTRUCTURING and REFORMATION of NIGERIA WE STAND.

    • New Nigerian

      Yap – Go through the house of rep & senate…that is the law of the land. Anarchists would be restrained, that is the law of the land.

  • the truth

    when u guys begin to answer these questions without bias then i will take u all seriously. Did buhari concede defeat in 2011? did hundreds of people die after that election? who created the boko haram menace to destabilize the gej govt? did the north and west collude to take power? don’t this people have a legitimate right to control their own resources?when the north was a groundnut heaven and the great plains of oshogbo(west) were sprawling with cocoa didn’t they want regional govt? If this oil was located in your village or in the north do u think they would be so magnanimous to entertain the rest of Nigeria? During the coup of 1966 when ironsi was killed and Murtala Mohammed was about to lead the north out of Nigeria didnt the uk envoy tell them the importance of oil in that meeting with danjuma and gowon?are the ijaws not marginalized? is the ijaw land not polluted due to this oil drillage?

    • Usher

      Brother GeJ was their why did he not push for resource control? Listen I am a geophysicist by profession and to think oil is only located in bayelsa is a falacy. There are more reserves offshore than what you gen onshore.

    • Chris1408

      Are the Ijaws just realizing this after Buhari got elected? Let’s join hands together to move Nigeria forward. We’ve been in the dark for too long.

    • adekenny

      Take your oil and go your way!!!enough is enough! Thank GOD we have move from oil boom to oil doom! I pray you should realise in time that oil has no more relevance in economic growth! If it still has ;the its no more on the turning point!

    • Baba

      All we know is that boko haram started before Jonathan and only escalating during his tenure because he is weak or deliberately allow it to escalate to punish the north.

    • New Nigerian

      All these analysis after exams or after the cup is won means what? so you can do better next time?

  • Rico

    Lol! The reality these youths refused to identify is that, there are far more betrayers among the Ijaw Youths Council than the entire people that supports them, they should be wary of saboteurs from inside from now on, they should realise dealing with a person like Yaradua, Obasanjo & Jonathan is quite different from dealing with a person who have Tinubu around him, they should get ready for a fight with tactical minds, they will be dealing with the most dangerous tactical politicians in the whole of Africa.
    Mark my word today, in short time, IYC will be fighting themselves instead of the govt., the younger militants will have their factions that won’t adhere to the older militants instructions, the upcoming militants will challenge the principles of the established ones, if these doesn’t happen, then Tinubu is not an APC chieftain.

  • Contact Point

    Idiots, Nigeria and Nigerians are waiting for you since you think we can only exist at your mercy. We shall see who will run when the fire started flying

    • EkeneChristian

      relax mr man..only pipe line ..your nigeria is finish

  • oliver

    All na wash,if you people think Buhari is the same as yaradu make una think again

  • Mature

    Not only was the election had so much irregularities in the north, they also showed they knew something about the book haram by orchestrating the bombing in Enugu and Anambra just to scare voters from coming out in mass. As the did not allow Goodluck to have peace in his government, they will not know peace themselves.
    How many times have the boko haram struck since the announcement of this result? You guys can no tell governor shettima to release the chibok girls . To my brothers from Niger delta. Violence will lead us to nowhere , rather we should unit as one, ss/se , try bring in those in the middle belt , with that our force will be as strong as any unit.

    • New Nigerian

      Give it up man. Election is won & lost. Don’t be a sore looser – Jonathan is not. So what do you gain. Move on with life!

    • Lawrence Aje

      The greedy ones will perish by their greed

  • bikky

    Before President JONATHAN ever became Nigeria president,Nigeria government has been running either good or bad,and God use some people to make him a president and he has tried to do what he could do and Nigeria needs to move forward,so either he won or not he will surely leave but now he has lost out so he needs to go,but if few people or group now said no,let wait and see ,but my advice for this group is to plan on how their region will be viable in social,economy and political arena,so that in the nearest future they will be able to relevant especially politically.

    • Goodguy

      If Buhari can be elected as president in Nigeria anybody can. So, stop this yours nonsense and face the reality.

      • Jack

        Youre the one far from reality, if Buhari can be president, everyone can be, what an ignorant,daft and subjective statement. Why are you not the President then. You guys come here to expose your so dirty and unqualified ignorance, get real and man up! Get education and it will surely help you my man, what a cheap jerk!

        • Goodguy

          Which school did Buhari went to? You are deceiving yourself. Buhari whose character and antecedents showed that he is a terrorist is now president elect what a shame.

          • Jack

            These are too different things, to have education and common sense, if as you suggest Buhari didnt have any qualification, then he must have common sense to be Head of State and now President -elect. Now to come back to you saying anyone can be President cos Buhari is the president elect is daft, the difference between Buhari and yourself is that he has common sense, while you lack both education and common sense by your contention here, Get a life! How dare you?

          • Goodguy

            Well, Buhari was elected because of people like you who are daft and has no future to think for themselves. If it were to be in a sane society Buhari would have been in jail by now. Your retarded and stupidity has led Nigeria astray still you don’t know yet.

          • Baba

            Anyone is better than a failed commander in chief which GEJ represents

          • New Nigerian

            Goodguy: I like your passion for Nigeria. My humble advise to you is to spend your time to improve your vocabulary by reading books and literature like magazines and novels – fiction & non fiction. Your attacks seem to mask a limited vocabulary to express what you really mean to say.

          • Baba

            Agony of a gejite. So it’s terrorist that sacks your god, GEJ. Gej is really weak commander in chief.

          • New Nigerian

            Goody: You mean which school did Buhari attend/go to…not “went to”

            The joke is on you, got it?

        • Ken

          @Jack or jackass it’s you that really needs to man up, get an education that’s fits you properly into society and do some thing productive instead of seeking a very cheap way out! You think it’s only the Niger delta that has oil or what? Borno has oil reserves that dwarfs Niger delta oil fields, Kogi has oil reserves, zamfara has gold that can turn it into Johannesburg and many more scattered around the country! If Nigeria decides to separate from Niger delta today, it’s the Niger delta and the Igbos that will lose! All of you will starve to death! Nonsense.

    • The truth

      Bullshit, let’s wait and see. The north doesn’t have the monopoly of violence in Nigeria. Since they’ve started the system of destabilizing the country when there own is not in power, they will receive equal measure with their own. It’s now time for the Baboon and the Dog to dig it out as prescribed by Buhari himself.

      • Chris1408

        You live in a civilized society, don’t you want same for Nigeria? Why are you advocating violence and destruction.

        • Goodguy

          I think you should ask Tinubu and Bokohari ( Buhari ) that said Boko haram should be given amnesty .

          • Chris1408

            GEJ wanted to give them amnesty. I’m not an advocate of amnesty for criminals. That’s what the jail is for. If you reward criminals, crime persists. Tompolo, Asari, Shekau and others needs to rot in jail. If GEJ didn’t address the issue of Niger delta when he’s in office, then they should keep quiet as they’ve been doing for the past 6 years

          • Goodguy

            never you compare shekau with these guys, this is how you twist
            fact. Shekau is a terrorist fighting for imaginary moon god of isl*m while these guys are fighting for their safety, have you seen them killing ordinary civilians ?.

          • Chris1408

            They are all terrorists that deserve to rot in jail. They’ve all killed and maimed innocent Nigerians.

          • Goodguy

            You are useless. no wonder you supported person like Buhari to be your president …..You deserve to live in the zoo because you reason like animal.

          • Jossy

            Exactly

          • Papashango77

            They advocated for amnesty for BOKO because GEJ had no balls to tackle them and people were been killed in their thousands.

        • Tunsj

          They do not want the country to move forward because Jonathan lost. What a shame!

      • jossy

        You are leaving in a fools paradise, man. Terrorists like you will see the real resolve of Nigeria’s collective will come May 29 , when your weak president and his illiterate wife would’ve packed out of Aso rock. This is the end of free money for lazy men.

  • Jack

    THE ISSUE HERE IS THAT INSPITE OF THE NIGER DELTANS BEING BEHIND GEJ FOR 6YEARS, WHAT HAS CHANGED FOR ND, THE HEAD OF THE AGITATORS HAVE ALL THEIR BUSINESSES OUTSIDE NIGERIA. ASARI HAS A UNIVERSITY IN BENIN REP, WHY NOT IN NIGER DELTA WHERE HIS PEOPLE CAN ENJOY THE EDUCATIONAL STANDARDS HES PROVIDING TO THE BENINOISE? HOW ABOUT LECTURES AND WORKERS OF THE UNIVERSITY COMING FROM ND, THATS PROVIDING GOOD EDUCATION AND QUALITY JOBS FOR HIS PEOPLE,ALAS, HE DIDNT! YET HE COMES TO NIGERIA TO THREATEN. GEJ COULD HAVE DONE MORE FOR THE ND,BUT CHOSE TO GIVE TO THE FEW AT THE DETRIMENT OF THE MAJORITY. IS ND BETTER THAN IT WAS DURING THE TIME OF SARO WIWA TODAY? I WILL WANT ANSWERS TO THAT. BUT MAN PROPOSES, GOD DISPOSES, THE ND WILL REALISE THAT GEJ LEFT THEM HANGING WHEN BUHARI STARTS TO SHOW GOOD STUFFS TO THE ND AND GIVE IT 2 YEARS FROM NOW, THE GREATEST SUPPORTERS OF BUHARI WILL BE ND, MARK MY WORDS!

  • Ayobanna Ikeanumba

    Buhari should rather lead a team of good Nigerians to go interact and reassure all the six zones we have on his promised mandates or equal justice, rooting corruption and love for all and he may have a very productive reign. Nigerians are the most brutally misled people and they trust no one till they see your work.

  • sammyctu ode

    Let these jobless militants get a life, go to school, have good education and how they can be absorbed into our new decent society under GMB instead of singing war songs. They made so much money under jonathan and still wants to make more without working for it. SHAMELESS PEOPLE.

  • Africa

    This looks like the beginning of the end for them, the amnesty payments for no work would stop and they would pick up arms again. The Nigerian military would be decisive in dealing with them this time around (come May 29) people like Asari and other idiots would be rounded up in months to come. This rubbish has to stop!

I wish to inform you that this nonsense will stop but be rest assured that the God of south south oil which you people have drill off completely for 58 years nown will give us courage to revolt against this deceit.

        First of all, you are using a fake name and no one will buy your nonsense comment. So the south south did not benefit from the oil. I do not know what is wrong with you people because you keep on bringing this nonsense about the Hausa and Yoruba. Now that Jonathan lost, you are talking about a revolt. You should be ashamed of yourself and you are acting like a 2 year old that someone took his toys from. People like you are the fools trying to bring this country down and if you fail to change, you will be left behind. Nigerians want to move forward and not this trash that you are talking about. You should think it through before you make ridiculous comment.

    Ijaws youth, words of advise. If you see the hair of another youth catches fire, the best option to the other youths is to get water and wet their hairs. You almost burnt yourself before but late President Yar Adua rescued you. President JONATHAN did not and refused to reciprocat in the North East. Therefore, do not overestimate the patience and kindness of Nigerians.

  • New Nigerian

    They should take their grievances to the election tribunal and every other issue they can give to their representatives at the local, state and federal levels for proper presentations for legislation, as relevant. We are all Nigerians – Equal before the law. And anyone who takes the law onto their own hands would feel the full weight of the law. Jonathan has shown how – days of free food a.k.a amnesty is over, we would no longer de-base our youths (from anywhere in the land) by making criminality the path to upward mobility, so anyone that take arms against the state would be give the Boko Haram treatment….and this time we would us technologically reformed military – drones and all.

  • Lawrence Aje

    Let the Ijaw nation youth show their hands very quick, so that Nigerians will the appropriate reaction and action that will follow in response to a direct or indirect assault against our Constitution and Repulic. Some these guys are nothing but cowards who have lost the sense of history. Without much talk I refer them to one of recent campaign rhetoric of President Jonathan where he admitted, after earlier denial, Henry Okah and MEND were after his life. What can be further than the truth in that. Boko Haram had been on ground during Yaradua/Jonathan presidency and continue to fester like other challenges he inherited only because the president was playing game with Nigerian lives. His body language reflected his thinking *who ever will die should, who cares as long as am safe in Aso Rock”. This their Ijaw President, for that is what they are trying to reduce President Jonto,did not emerge as leader because Ijaw people elected him but because Nigerians from all walk of life for on his behalf to stop a cabal bent on preventing him from become the president. While the struggle for his ascending the throne was ongoing, a known Ijaw elder Who Now PocketThe President and South South governor were against that struggle. Wait, has this Ijaw youth council relented on why a man who received overwhelming support from Nigerians and people of goodwill all over the world just become isolated and become just Ijaw/south south leader? How did people like former President Olusegun Obasanjo and a whole lot of influential others become alienated to President Jonathan? Ijaw Youth must look inward toward Ijaw nation to find solution to their political loss than to start blaming and threatening Nigeria nation for their own mistakes. As a people, the support, the eulogy, hope, love and expectations of Nigerians over Jonathan’ presidency was enormous and unparalleled in the annals on Nigeria history so was the disappointment after playing tribal politics with those goodwill by a section of Ijaw people. Ijaw Youth Council, after you might have deliberated in your upcoming conference, Nigeria demand apologies from you for not offering genuine advice to Mr President during his tenure thereby denied all of us the good governance expected from a purported man of history.

    • Sammy Charles

      The hausa fulanis never voted for Jonathan in 2011 mind you. In fact they vowed to make the country ungovernable for him. When Jonathan won in 2011 Buhari, a very satanic man never congratulated him, so I support the people of the Niger Delta. They must make Nigeria ungovernable for him

      • Sunday Chuks

        So how did Jonathan won?

    • Tamuno-Opubo Cookey-Gam

      Boko Haram has it’s history in being the enforcers of Sharia law which was introduced by Northern governors including Mu’azu

  • Andy da don

    so Nigerians don’t have the right to ever vote for anyone apart from an ijaw man…..ever? Mind you it was with the votes of both north and south west that GEJ won in 2011…A number of Northerners fought for GEJ against the wishes of some of their kinsmen to ensure he won…they went on the streets of abuja, GEJ won in Benue, kogi, kwara and plateau, taraba….and lost by small margin in other northern states. So GEJ plotted for his downfall unilaterally. There is nothing like a conspiracy against the SS just a collective decision on an alternative to a failed Government.

    • Sammy Charles

      RUBBISH. Buhari won all the hausa fulani state in 2011. Middle belt, south east, south south and south west gave it to jonathan in 2011. Anyway we are back to square one. oil production will grounded in the Niger Delta. Buhari will never know peace . Tinubu and Buhari will be sharing the oil blocks. God forbid, it will not happen

      • Tunsj

        So according to you, Nigeria will not see peace because Buhari won. You sound like a psychopath and you are out of your mind. You are not going to stop any progress in Nigeria because Nigerians will support Buhari. You’re about as clueless and ill informed as they come.You are sorely in need of an education. You seem to be living in a fantasy land. Grow up.

      They swore to make the country ungovernable for Jonathan-in 2011 everything they did was based on sentiments————not more no less—if Buhari had congratulated Jonathan in 2011 we would never have gone through the killing that took place in the post-election riot—in the Fulani North–What we are simply saying—-is that the south-west stayed in aso rock for 8 yrs———–the fulani north–was there 29 yrs–those who produce the wealth of the nation were allowed only 4 yrs—————————- we cannot continue to use our resources to feed the fulani north—-who own the oil wells–we gave them 45 years of our lives–They gave us nothing in return———separation is the only solution———to our current plight-

    • Charlotte

      Terry which food do you put on whose table. Don’t you know it is food grown by this Hausa Fulani that you eat. Can anything survive on your ground. Have your leaders done any reclamation for you. Have you questioned the activities of the Niger delta ministry.How will you develop if you don’t question your own leaders on why they are not doing their jobs. GMB is not Jonathan whom though has earned our respect has a military background. I don’t think he will take kindly to any act of terrorism or militancy no matter the agitation. Ask your leaders why no significant changes have occurred in you communities despite the fact that one of your own was there. It will take this Fulani to change your fortunes mark my words. He will do for you more than your own has ever done for you. If I were you I would support him for the sake of the future of the Niger delta.

      • Musanga

        God gave the North massive Land and the Niger-Delta crude oil. And it has never cross your mine that vast agricultural land translate to great wealth and that many countries in the world are great wit that. The nigerian regions abandon all of these to focus on oil. Is there anytime you get carrot, onion from the north for free or provided free by the federal government? Then why is crude diff?

        • Charlotte

          Direct that answer to terry. Tell him. How is crude free. Have people asked why the international best practices don’t work here. It is because they settle the community leaders who in turn allow the oil companies to continue to rape their land. Did anything change while Jonathan was there. Please tell me I may not know. Look it only takes a leader with guts and will to face these problems and GMB is that man. Let the nddc give account of its activities.

    • JJ. Ola

      Such food as ogogoro and fish what else? Have you ever been to the southwest before and now? If you dont know, the southwest has very rich land for agricultural purposes. And as far as food items are concerned your ss have nothing to give to us in the southwest, nothing at all.

      Let me remind you that when BH started in Nigeria, they started with the people from their region, they killed them in masses, and yet, Nigeria prevails and still existing till today, and so same will happen to any militant from your region, they will start with your own people and afterwards, Nigeria will still continue to exist, you underestimated the doggedness of far better Nigerians commitment to unity.

      Thank you very much. They are all talking because they are feeding fat on the oil from Niger Delta. The earlier they go back to thier groundnut and cocoa the better. There is absolutly nothing a helpless buhari will do. Period. Nigerian army does not mean anything. when there is no oil money to but weapons after pipelines are blown off, what is the use of Nigerian army. Most of you westerners and notherners are nothing but insane to think that you will struggle for power because of Niger Delta oil. Better stop it.

      We the South West and the North conspired to install Jonathan, first as acting President and then as President in 2011. At that time where were the militants and so called Niger Delta Youths? In the creeks kidnapping and stealing crude oil!

      In 2011 you did not need to conspire, all Nigerians prefered GEJ. It is clear you used underaged voters to rig elections. barawo and ole

      • JJ. Ola

        So if you think that there was no conspiracy in voting in jonathan as the president in 2011 general election, because the people preferred jonathan as against his opponent, in this case General Buhari .What then make you think that, the same people that preferred Jonathan in 2011 cannot changed their mind to preferred Buhari as against Jonathan in 2015?

    The Ijaws and indeed Niger-Deltans are not saying anything strange. We are simply saying that our resources can no longer feed the whole nation. If you say we are wrong, then you don’t have conscience and simply hypocrite. Ordinarily Nigeria as a nation should have ended this petro-state economy long ago but greed could not allow. Then if we the Niger Deltans don’t do this, posterity won’t forgive us. We are not threatening the nation sovereignty but simply returning to what Nigeria was before the oil discoveries. Thank you all.

    • Space

      You must be a clown. Who says the oil belongs to you?

    • garborne72

      It is not Niger Deltans that are saying anything but the Ijaws. I don’t understand this your attitude of behaving as if only Ijaw land has oil. It is sickening and annoying. The Ijaws are acting selfishly and like spoilt brats. The other day you will not allow a project sighted in an Itsekiri community to be launched just because you people want to selfishly claim what is not yours. In one breath the Gbaramatu Ijaw people claim to own 80% of the land for the project sighted between two Itsekiri communities of Ogidigben and Madangho, in another breath the the Ogulagha/Sokobolor Ijaws claim 70% ownership of the same land. Amazingly, Gbaramatu people are in the same Warri south west local government with the Itsekiri and are the immediate western neighbours of these Itsekiri communities, while the Ogulagha people are in Burutu LGA which shares no land boundary with Warri south west. The distance between the Itsekiri towns and the river boundary between the 2 LGAs is well over 60km. For your information Akwa Ibom populated mainly by Ibibios, Anangs, Eket, Oron people, going by current statistics is the state that produces the most oil. In Rivets state the Ogonis, Egis, Ogbas, Andonis, Etche, Egbemas, Ndokis etc combine, produces about 72% of the oil against the less than 20% produced by Ijaw speaking ethnic groups like Kalabari, Okrika and Opobo. In Delta state the Ijaws account for about 27%, second to the Itsekiris at 29% and the other groups. Bayelsa is the only solely Ijaw state and they account for about 14% of the nations oil production. You peopoe must stop this madness. If you keep bringing up this your meaningless ethnic cry with so much arrogance, very soon you people will find yourself all alone with no ally. With this your ethnic noise you are making let me ask, if all of Bayelsa could only give Jonathan less than 400,000 of the over 28 million votes, why then do you expect the Hausa/Fulanis or Yorubas to abandon their own and vote him. You people are taking too much, far and abivr what you have watch out before it consumes you all.

    AND GOODLUCK JONATHAN IS TRYING TO SAVE HIS SKIN, HOW DOES THAT TRANSLATE TO WRITING HIS NAME IN GOLD?. THE REAL WINNERS ARE WE THE PEOPLE QED. I HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR A VERY LONG TIME I HAVE BEEB SAYING THAT WE THE PEOPLE WILL MAKE SURE THAT GOODLUCK JONATHAN WILL BE DEFEATED WHEN THE CHIPS ARE DOWN I HAVE BEEN PROVED VERY RIGHT. THE REAL LOSER IN THIS ELECTION ARE THE IGBO PEOPLE AS THE PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE AND THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES COULD HAVE COME FROM THAT ZONE. NOW IT IS IMPOSSIBLE AS THERE IS NO SENATOR FROM THAT ZONE. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE VERY SHORT SIGHTED VERY GREEDY AND VERY SELFISH PEOPLE AS LEADERS OR PARADE AS LEADERS, WHEN THEY ARE JUST SHAMELESS DEALERS ONLY AFTER THEIR POCKETS AND INTERESTS. THE IGBO PEOPLE MUST NOW USE THEIR ‘NUMBER 6’ AND RECTIFY THIS SELF INFLICTED ANOMALY. I HOPE THEY KNOW WHAT TO DO?

    • Dr. Norom

      Ignorance is bliss. So you think the Igbo depend on politicians to survive? They have never and will never. They survived and excelled in Biafra and immediately after the war, despite political, economic and social oppression. Why? Because of their imperfections, they have what makes a people great: Emotional Quotient and Intelligence Quotient; and none can take them away from them. Ndigbo depend on their intelligence, patience, resilience, and resourcefulness to excel all over the world. An Igbo man and his wife in Washington, D.C.-the Osuala Egos- have raised six medical doctors and their last child will be entering medical school this year. Could that have happened in Nigeria? Wherever there is fairness and a level playing field, the Igbo like the Jews, excel. You do not need political connections or even mineral resources to be developed in modern society. Neither Japan, India or China have oil but have become great powers. The threat that Buhari will employ violence against his opponents bodes ill for Nigeria. He has already been sued at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for inciting violence during the 2011 presidential election; and his role during the massacre of Igbo and Eastern Nigerian officers during the July 1966 Hausa-Fulani coup as well as his military operations during the Nigeria-Biafra War, and the fear among Christians that he is an Islamist, will force him be careful in dealing with potentially increasing demand foe autonomy in the South South and the South East. This is no longer the era of violent military impunity (ask ICC-indicted president El Neimery of Sudan) Not in the era of the internet and of social media.

    Go ahead! I’d rather have the war than to live in a democracy in which I cannot vote against someone I voted for in a previous election. It is dehumanising to live in such slavery all in the name of democracy. Start the war and bring destruction to your people. When the war is over, those who survive it can at least have a true democracy in which people are not threatened to vote for a failed president in order to appease his or her tribe! Utter rubbish!

    If a slavish democracy is what Ijaw youths are proud to die for, they should go ahead and be ready to die for it. I am an Igbo man, and I can promise them that they will have to fight and die alone. Igbos will be the first to distance themselves from such utterly st00pid war. Utter nonsense!

    They think this is the feckless administration led by Jonathan. The Nigerian army that will emerge over the coming months will be able to crush these silly idi0cy.

    When Obasanjo leveled Odi in Bayelsa after they killed Nigerian soldiers. What did these noisemakers do? What? Nothing!
    When Jonathan won (partly by mindless rigging) in 2011, was it Ijaw youths that delivered the votes that gave him victory? Did he not win in many places in the South west, North and East? Useless brainless talkatives who will die for nothing.

  • logmein2nite

    Ijaw nation, please don’t blame the north, west, east or south. Every region wants power, and understandably so. Your greatest undoing was your wife, the uncouth Dame Patience Jonathan. Like any bad woman she cost her husband and her people something dear – the Jonathan presidency. All through history, millions have died for the wickedness and foolishness of some woman, and they hardly receive even a mention in history books, just as it is the case today. You can bleed and die for her if you want, but any militant struggle now lacks legitimacy and smacks of hypocrisy. Be calm, there is still tomorrow. If you play smart, you can get what you want for your people in general (not for Tompolo and co. only) from the Buhari administration while you wait for another turn. Blackmailing a democratic process should be out of the question, in your own interest.

    The message is loud and clear. It needs no interpretation whatsoever. I suggest that you all read the statements by Sir Asari Dokubo made public by his personal aide few days ago. Again you have seen the one released by the IYC. Do these statements look like those of people who are illiterate?

    For ever action. There must be an equal but opposite reaction. 200 pipelines MUST also be “kidnapped” like the 200 girls. Let’s not deceive ourselves. Nigeria is now HISTORY. Bokohari can relocate the Nigerian army to the creeks
    .
    In the hegemony quest for power, the North fought an unprecedented bitterest war attrition with regard to tne unity of Nigeria. This it did with the instrument of Terror. Jonathan was portrayed as weak and blamed for every bomb and suicide bombing. But it has never been proven that the little girls blown up were born of Otuoke parents…yet, not one parent ever claimed to have lost a 13yr old girl. Once, a suicide bomber’s vest failed to detonate. She would later confess that it was her own father who gifted her to Boko haram for the course of destabilizing Jonathan’s government. I can go on and on, but it is not necessary now.

    The pattern of voting has affirmed our position on an intrinsically divided Nigeria that is more of a continent than a country. We do not even want confederation anymore. What we want & demand is secession. Period!

    Buhari has the capacity to lead the North and the ever subservient Yoruba West. Let him go ahead. For the South & East, we chose our path to greatness and freedom from threats and terrorism. We refuse to be cowed. We assert that we as a people shall shape our own destiny in isolation from those who feel that governance and willful exploitation of the resources of a people is their birthright. No. Vehemently no. And those who have ears, let them hear.

    CONDITION:
    The only condition for one Nigeria is for the North to stay clear of power UNTIL the rest of the country (South, East & West) equal their 39yrs thus far. Period! This position is non-negotiable.

    Long live the Niger Delta

      My brother I am just as South south as anyone can claim my father been Urhobo and my mum ukwani. Now you are beginning to sound like the entire south south is ijaw, very wrong. We should have ourselves to blame for having such a dullard as the one who got the mantle to lead us. I need to remind you that in 2011 jonathan got votes from all over the federation north and south west inclusive and if they decided not to vote for him this time around just as some of us from the south south did( forget all that spurious votes those governors gave to him) I dont see why we should be crying.

      Same kindergarten rhymes akpos1 has been baying ferociously for the past years 5 years to no avail. Suprised you did not include oba of Ilorin and offa forest in your lyrics. What a sore loser you are.

    • JJ. Ola

      That’s if you all have the guts of the Arabs, so shall the spring start and let see who will runs out to any of the African country when the heat becomes on bearable.

  • favourtalk

    They should be careful, this is no more a regime of confusion. But the one that has direction and will take action at the right time. Nigeria will not tolerate failure again or militancy

    Be warned no single group has monopoly of violence. Nigeria had an election, and they voted for the candidate of their choice, simple.

  • musa aliyu

    Hear them; no more theft, so you are disturbed? You do not know our strength! Try the incoming government and you shall see! lazy idiots!

    • Rotimi Lawanson

      Musa don’t be silly. You cannot control or eliminate those people. This is a creek area. The place is difficult if not impossible to navigate with forces. Moving from one place to another in speed boats takes about 3 hours. So these people must be brought to the negotiating table. You cannot attempt that direction otherwise they will blow all the pipelines and there will be no oil. What he said above is true. The North did create Boko Haram and made his tenure ungovernable. What should be preached now is peace because if those boys start, we will all have no allocation o. North cannot survive without allocation. Neither can Lagos. So the response has to be measured and mature and not based on military force.

      • vade Mecum

        Which side of the political divide are you on, MR smart Alec? No let Gugura Ekpa catch you using his adopted name. Nice one sha!!!!

      • musa aliyu

        Mr Rotimi, if you have ears to hear, listen. Jonathan undid himself first by telling us he signed their so_called agreement for the north to go for 2 terms. He later reneged. Boko Harm predates Jonathan. He thought he could use it foolishly to cross 2015. My points are: is it the north that asked him to be sending 400 soldiers with 200 guns to battle Bh? If so then he is not fit to be there. 2ndly, if the war could be fought in 6 weeks, why did it take him 6 years to waste human lives? Is any northerner behind that? The conclusion is yours. As for Niger Deta dogs of war, I wish them well. We’ll live to see who made them spokespersons of the people they impoverished yet pointing accusing fingers to others. ask yourself, the amount they milked from Federal government in 16 years and you’ll see whether it won’t be capable of manumitting the whole Nigeria, not to talk of Niger Delta

  • Northerner

    Ijaw dumbass people of S/E or S/S I feel sorry for ur dumbness! Power isn’t coming back to ur region any soon! After Buhari 8 years, 100% sure Osinbajo will take over and bag his 8 years! Till then Rochas can take over!

    • Nkuu

      Almajiris’ problems originates from lack of education. Stop blowing up your elderly, mothers, brothers, & sisters. If Buhari makes a wrong move he would not even last till 2019. Whatever be the case Buhari is intelligent enough. HE MUST HAND OVER POWER TO SE or SS and if it come to SE it would not be ROCHAS or APC.

      • Northerner

        Thanks for the Almajiris schools. Perhaps it’s payback time now, in return we going to build u 125 psychiatrists hospitals and schools for people like ur imbecile parents and Orubebe to attend.

    It is time for the giant in Nigeria to wake up , no particular clan should hold it hostage , when an elephant moves ,it does with his strength . Nigeria should move forward with out the saboteurs tn their mist . It must nib destructive tendencies in the bud before it fester.
    God bless Nigeria .

    And the CinC watches as tr easonable felony is being committed right right, left and center. The weak leadership lasts only seven weeks, Allah willing.

  • Bob tee

    It is a shame that the south south or Ijaw people are very forgetful and selfish, they keep talking about natural wealth that belongs to Nigeria Federation as if they can not think! Firstly, they have forgotten about the ground nut pyramids, cotton and cocoa that was used to earn foreign exchange that served the whole nation, when there was no oil, they have forgotten that all the equipment that were used in exploring the so call oil came through the Apapa port in Lagos, and finally they are so backward to think that one day this oil will either be exhausted or obsolete now that the West are developing smart electric vehicles powered by renewable energy! Please wake up and be sensible, this is no time for tribal sentiments, if you refuse to join the train of progress, you will be left out, Nigerian have spoken, your uncle has failed us, let us try baba for another 4 years, if he dosent perform..my lovely Nigerian people know what to do, Nigerian will always stick together to fight it enemy, Ijaw people will have to decide whether they are friend or foe like Boko aram…we have a capable leader to smoke them out!
