Niger Delta Militants Agitates Again
The Niger Delta militants have started to agitate again, according to them they want the federal government to restructure Nigeria or they will shut down activities in the Niger Delta.
A statement signed by the leader of the Niger Delta Watchdogs, Mr John Duku said:
After carefully studying the recent political development in Nigeria in general and the Niger Delta in particular, the Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators hereby wishes to state as follows:
“We hereby condemn the recent freezing of the Akwa Ibom State Government Account by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and we view it as an act of intimidation by the agent of the Federal Government and the APC in order to weaken the smooth running of government in the Niger Delta state.
We hereby warn the EFCC and other agents of government to desist from this act of official recklessness and breach of the constitution.”
From all indications, the attack is not on Governor Udom Emmanuel but on the good people of the state because of the personal hatred the APC-led government has for the people of the state in particular and the Niger Delta as a whole.
OYE: I understand that the APC government has been one-sided in their fight against corruption but the question is: Is the governor guilty or NOT?

While Republic of Niger paid $3.79 million, the Community Electric du Benin (CEB), an international electricity firm co-owned by the governments of Bénin and Togo, paid $6.32 million.
Discos have consistently complained of paucity of funds to run their operations, a situation that has constrained expansion and fresh facility upgrade. It was on the basis of such complaints that the Federal Government, on May 10, 2018, provided N72 billion financial lifeline to the Discos.
The government has 40 per cent shareholding while the core investors of the Discos maintain 60 per cent shareholding. The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) would be the source of the facility as well as its manager.
OYE: So Nigeria is still supplying other countries light …
