I beg to disagree with u.Who remains they question.Problems are caused by people & not things.So the what question is a secondary one.The greed u're talking about is not in a tree or stone.It's in men.So we must treat the primary cause(men) before any talk of the secondary(greed et al).

Insentivity of leadership of Niger Delta has immensely contributed to the show of shame in that region. Moreover the people of the region, too, seem not to be ready to get themselvews extricated from  the schakle of backwardness and poverty as they contiunue to help these rogues to power. They must now rise against the traitors that parade themselves as leaders in that region. These leaders tactically collude with the power that be in the centre to further impoverish the hapless niger Deltans. What have they done with the huge financial resources they have drawn  from the federal purse to advance the economy and political stability of the region?

Buddyflex,I must commend u 4 ur clear understanding of the ND crises.Many folks here seem 2 misunderstand the crux of the crises.They are looking @ the symptoms rather than looking @ the ailment.Just 2 reiterate,let me state it here that the so called militants are not part of the crises but an offshoot or offspring of the crises.

The ND crisis is a crisis of UNDERDEVELOPMENT,caused by unbridled ethnic chauvinism & ethnic based political domination,that ve given those with access to State power,the opportunity 2 exploit & expropriate those without power.In this case,the Niger delta happened 2 be the victims.This crisis of underdevelopment,which is characterized by the Niger Delta masses living in abject penury,while the whole country grow fat from the Petro-dollar, which is earn through activities that ve many negative externalities for the ND people.The frustration that comes out of this(the crisis of Underdevelopment)was/is what ve led to the 2nd crisis-the crisis of INSTABILITY.The crisis of instability has taken various forms.Namely,intra & inter communal & ethnic conflicts,Youth restiveness,hostage taking,insurgence(which some of u call militancy),sabotage of the Fed Govt interest in the area,etc.

You cannot understand the Crises without putting it in its proper perspective like this.Some of u ll ask,"is he then saying the Niger delta ruler ain't part of the problem?"I ain't saying that.I'm only saying,u should look past the smoke(flame)& see the fire.Buddyflex talked about a pre-independence agreement to develop the area.Yes the Willinks Commission report said the ND should be declared a SPECIAL AREA 4 development,but nothing was done.
For those of you talking about Militancy,ve u ever asked urself why there weren't militancy B4 1999?Have u taken the time out 2 ask urselves why the once peaceful ND people,who actually fought in the side of Nigeria during the 30 Months Civil war,decided to be agitating all of a sudden?It's called CONSCIOUSNESS in Marxism.

ma guy, never blame the government for what is happening in the N/D. The gov't pump alot of cash in that direction but there leaders steal the money and tell the thugs to go about kidnapping white guys. for god's sake former bayelsa state governor was wearing a $250000000 wrist watch when he was caught for abuse of office abroad how many schools would that wrist watch of the thief build.
 secondly every naija person got rights to live any where he/she wants must they live by the waters?.
men those people are there own crisis just because they live where crude is extracted does not mean they should go about disgracing the country on the international scene.

Ddurkwa!
I can see U dont understand the crisis.U're still stoke in this 1998/9 argument.U talk about 'leaders of the Delta stealing the money sent there for development,& gave D.S.P as ur classic example.My question is,who put him in power in the first place?If he had agreed to support OBJ's 3rd term bid,would we've discovered all that?
It's amazing how some of U analyze politics.U treat political objects like u treat some other low level things.Take ur time to study the crisis so U'll be in an enlightened position to discuss it in its proper perspective.Thanks & God bless.Happy independence Day 2 U.

Some peeps say the ND Governors,LGA Chairmen & community leaders are the cause of the crisis.However,the popular view holds that it was caused by the long EXPLOITATION & NEGLECT of the Area by the Nigerian State controlled by the elites of the major ethnic groups & the Oil Multinational Companies operating in the area.Pals!what's ur take on this.

na lie ooo na d FG cause am all

Cleverman!
I know that the whole of Nigeria is a psychiatric hospital.I ve said that elsewhere.However,solving the crisis in the Niger Delta,where over 90% of the nation's wealth come from,will go a long way in solving the problem in this country.I am not & will never neglect other parts of the country in my analysis.However,where we see the truth,let's say it,even if it hurts our ethnic homelands.

It wont be funny if U se the naked realities urself.It wont be worth a smile when U see people(whose ethnic homeland account for the bulk of Nigeria's wealth)fetching water to drink from the same place where they shit.U wont ve the courage to even think of smiling when U see the abject penury that have visited the people due to the dislocation of the traditional occupations,means of livelihood & way of life,by Oil exploration & exploitation.It wont be funny when U find out that they life expectancy rate in the Niger Delta is lower than the national average.And the national average is about one of the poor or least in the whole world.You cant laugh(how would U?U ve a milk of kindness in U)when U find out that they ve the least access to anything that is needed to live a normal life.And that due to lack of education,health care,food,sanitary equipment,a once peaceful people have now turned into hostage takers etc.

There is nothing comical about the Niger Delta Crisis.Those who thought it was funny are facing the existential realities now.It's not a Joke.
