Mallam SANUSI LAMIDO is the owner of the ASUOKPO/UMUTU MARGINAL FIELD which spread from ABRAKA/UBIAROKO to AGBOR. The field is operated by SEPLAT/PLATFORM PETROLEUM.
The Chinese rig HPEB 119 is currently drilling a new crude oil well for SANUSI in this location.
This is the INJUSTICE and OPPRESSION the people of the NIGER DELTA are going through in the name of Nigeria
Why on earth would SANUSI own the oil wells drilled in the that large area of Delta North? Every day SANUSI LAMIDO gets ROYALTY for every crude that is pumped from all the wells in the ASUOKPO/UMUTU MARGINAL FIELD.
NEITHER DOES OUR KINGS, FAMILIES, VILLAGES OR COMMUNITY get royalties for the crude oil of their land which is their exclusive right, but it is paid to the people of the North and Yorubas who says they own our land
SANUSI LAMIDO just bought a ROLLS ROYCE, where did he get the money from? Is it from his savings? The Northerners and Yorubas are the ones who enjoys and squander the crude oil wealth and NOBODY asks them where they got the money from.
The ASUOKPO/UMUTU MARGINAL FIELD had been shared to the stool of the EMIR OF KANO, and as long as SANUSI remains the Emir of Kano he will continue to get royalty in dollars of the crude oil that is being pumped from that field. When another EMIR takes over from SANUSI, the field will be transferred to that new EMIR, and the cycle continues. Also, the SULTAN OF SOKOTO and ONI OF IFE have crude oil fields from which they get paid ROYALTY for what does not belong to them.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM OF THE NIGER DELTA PEOPLE? WHERE WERE WE WHEN THE NORTH AND YORUBAS ARE DOING THIS TO US.
The Northerners and Yorubas gives pocket money to our kings and stooges, using divide and rule to stoke our people against themselves so that we can never understand how they are plundering our land.
OBASANJO ENACTED the LAND USE ACT to enable the NORTH AND YORUBAS have control over the Niger Delta to enable them share the CRUDE OIL WELLS, BLOCKS AND FIELDS.
OUR PEOPLE HAVE BEEN FOOLS AND NAIVE FOR TOO LONG, we have used the wealth of our land to keep one Nigeria to the benefit of the North and Yorubas.
The NIGER DELTA HAVE NOT BENEFITED ANYTHING from the North and Yoruba land. We focused on rubber, palm, fishing, etc., in the 50s and 60s while the British, North and Yorubas focused on taking control of the crude oil wealth of our land.
I USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO CALL ON THE PEOPLE OF THE NIGER DELTA TO COME TOGETHER AND END THIS INJUSTICE AND OPPRESSION WE ALLOWED ON OURSELVES.
OUR LAND HAVE SUFFERED ENOUGH FOR OVER 50YRS OF LOOTING THE CRUDE OIL WEALTH BY THE IOCS, NORTH AND YORUBA
Gen. Agbinibo, I am pained beyond measure, and as an electrical engineer, I am putting a team together for a special attack. The North and Yorubas are relying on the NIGERIA MILITARY, but we are relying on JUSTICE.
ENOUGH! ENOUGH!! ENOUGH!!!
