THE NORTH DO NOT NEED THE OIL TO SURVIVE. INFACT THEY ARE PROVIDING VIRTUALLY EVERY VEGETABLE AND FOOD ITEM CONSUMED BY EVERY FAMILY IN THE SOUTH. THEY DON'T NEED THE OIL. INFACT THE SOUTH NEED THE NORTH MORE THAN THEY REALIZE. WHAT THE OIL DOES IS TO PROVIDE THEIR GOVERNMENTS WITH THEIR SHARE OF THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT AS MEMBERS OF THIS NATION. 

you have spoken wisely

You are not making any sense. Can't you see how odd your comments are? You are not under any obligation to comment. If you ain't got anything reasonable to say, ZIP IT.

WHY WILL ANYONE THINK THEY CAN NOT SURVIVE WITHOUT THE OIL? WERE THEY NOT LIVING B4 THE DISCOVRING OF THE OIL? HOW MANY NATIONS OF THE WORLD HAS OIL? ITALY FOR EXAMPLE DOES NOT HAVE OIL YET THERE ARE NO FUEL SCARCITY SINCE MY KNOWING ITALY! LIKEWISE SOME WORLD POWERS! WHAT IS THE QUANTITY OF OIL DEPOSIT IN MALAYSIA, GERMANY ETC? THE TRUTH REMAINS THAT RESOURCE CONTROL BRINGS OUT THE VERY BEST OF EACH REGION AMIDST HEALTHY COMPETITION!
THE NOTHERN LEADERS ARE TOO BLIND TO SEE THE MANY ADVANTAGES THAT CAN BE DERIVED FROM THE SO CLAMOURED RESOURCE CONTROL BY THE SOUTH SOUTH! ALL EVENTIONS OF THE WORLD CAME ABOUT AS A RESULT OF MAN TRYING TO FIND SOLUTION TO THE LIMITATIONS IN NATURE! INSTEAD THEY LOOSE THEIR FOCUS TO GIVE A BACKUP TO EVIL POLICIES SUCH AS QUOTA SYSTEM, DEREGULATIONS, NEPOTISM ETC. QUOTA SYSTEM RATHER THAN HELPING THEM IS KILLING THEM EVEN MORE! RATHER THAN COMPARING WITH THE WORLD STANDARD THEY ARE BUSY COMPETING WITHIN WHICH IS A LOWER STANDARD! THOSE WHO ORIGINATED THE POLICIES HAS FOR LONG DROPT THEM!
EVEN THE SO CALLLED SOUTH SOUTH ARE BUSY LESS PUTTING ALL HER INETREST AND MIGHT ON OIL! NO OTHER AREA OF INTEREST AND THUS INNOVATIONS. THEY ARE GETTING MORE LAZY BY THE DAY. DEFINATELY THE OIL WILL DRY UP THEN WHAT NEXT?Huh?Huh?Huh?Huh?Huh?Huh?Huh?Huh?Huh??///

WHAT I HAVE DISCOVERED OVER THE YEARS IS THAT OIL IN PARTICULAR IS A CURSE! LOOK AROUND THE WORLD AND YOU WILL FIND THAT MOST DEVELOPED NATIONS WERE'NT OIL PRODUCING NATIONS. JAPAN, US, UK, RUSSIA, GERMANY... YOU NAME THE REST. BUT WAIT A MINUTE, WHAT IS THE FATH OF THOSE ARAB OIL GIANTS? WAR, LAZINESS, FEAR, MONARCHY, ETC. OR BETTER STILL, WHAT CAN THEY ACTUALLY OFFER THE WORLD? OIL...IN IT CRUDE FORM I GUESS. VERTUALLY NOTHING, NOT EVEN REFINING TECHNOLOGY. FOR YOUR INFORMATION, ADVANCED COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD ARE MORE FOCUSED ON DEVELOPING THEIR HUMAN RESOURCE AND NOT OIL, AS IT IS THE ONLY SUSTAINABLE MEANS OF DEVELOPMENT. ONLY LAZY PEOPLE THINK ABOUT MAKING MONEY FROM RESOURCES, WHICH OFCOURSE IT IS BY COINCIDENCE THAT THEY HAPPEN TO BE THERE, IT COULD HAVE BEEN THE NORTHERNERS IN THE NIGER DELTA.

MY FRIEND, IF YOU THINK NIGERIAN MASSES AS A WHOLE (NOT TALKING ABOUT THE NORTH FOR NOW) ARE SURVIVING ON OIL, THEN THINK AGAIN. GO AROUND THE VILLAGES AND TELL ME ANY SIGN OF OIL DOLLARS. FOR YOUR INFORMATION, MOST NATIONS WITHOUT OIL ARE DOING BETTER THAN THEIR OIL PRODUCING COUNTER-PARTS.

AGAIN, IF THE NIGER DELTA PEOPLE WHERE TO BE LEFT TO CONTROL THEIR OIL???, THEN THEY WOULD HAVE SEEN THE END OF PEACE, COS EVERY VILLAGE AND HELMET WOULD WANT TO CONTROL THEIR SO-CALLED OIL. INFACT NIGER DELTA WILL DIS-INTEGRATE INTO SEVERAL AUTONOMOUS COUNTRIES...GOD FORBID.

LASTLY, AS A NORTHERNER, I WOULD LIKE TO SINCERELY ADVISE THE NIGER DELTA PEOPLE TO EXPLORE THE OPTION OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, AGRICULTURE AS A VERITABLE MEANS OF LIBERATING THEMSELVES FROM THEIR PREDICAMENT AND EQUALLY FOCUSE ON MORAL RE-ORIENTATION OF THEIR YOUNG ONES SO THAT THEY DON'T GROW UP IN THE LIGHT OF PEOPLE LIKE ODILI, DSP ALA AND ALL THOSE NIGER DELTA GOVERNORS THAT HAVE STOLEN THEIR STATE ALLOCATIONS AND DEPOSITED IN FOREIGN ACCOUNTS, LIVING THEIR PEOPLE WITH GUNS, POVERTY AND ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION. AS FOR WE THE NORTHERNERS, OUR GRAND FATHERS LIVED BETTER AND IN A MORE PEACEFUL NORTH WITHOUT OIL THAN WE ARE LIVING NOW WITH OIL. IT WILL BE OUR PLEASURE TO RE-EXPERIENCE THE PAST. ATLEAST WE HAVE PLENTY FOOD TO EAT AND LAND TO BUILD HOUSES AND FARM. BESIDES WE HAVE PLENTY OF RESOURCES THAT WE COULD DEVELOP AND MAKE TWICE AS MUCH AS NIGERIA IS MAKING FROM OIL! WHO SAYS THERE IS NO OIL AND GAS IN THE NORTH??? ONLY TIME SHALL TELL.

THE NIGER DELTA PEOPLE SHOULD TAKE IT EASY, OIL IS NOT EVERYTING AND NOT HAVING IS NOT THE END OF HOPE. A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE!

You made some good points in terms of dialog but the issue is that the Northerners in power are not even doing any good to their own people in the North talkless the whole Nigeria.The Northerners upon all are lacking behind in all it takes for civilization.The so called leaders are not even doing any good to the Norths with all the money they loot.Start from IBB,is there any common industry in Mina,his state,then talk of Abacha and so on leaving their folks to suffer as well.I will advice every wise Northerner to go deeply into Agriculture hence they have a very good fertile land that could grow all this food.Our leaders have deceived us much for their selfish interest nothing more.As you can see the Igbos,they are hard working and good in business I think they are much comfortable with with their faith.

you are good in using words but sadly, you use your words verbose and end up contradicting yourself. you have also proved tha that you base your ideas on shallow research or rather hearsays. the north is important to nigeria just as the south is important too. ask yourself, if Nigeria is to break up, can the igbos leave with the yorubas? can the igbos all go back to the east and leave? will the Niger delta be able to cohabit with igbos, the niger delta themselve, will the be able to develop with militant activities;kidnap,robbery, ethnic clash, abduction etc.i can go on and on with so many questions and have no convinsing anwers. so my friend it is better for nigeria to be,than to be seperated cos our present problems is solvable, but the problems that wil come with what some are calling for is rether unemaginable

How can fish survive without water? Huh?

never forget the saying that before the corn came to being . the checkens , hens , cocks. were actually feeding on some things else . so also was the nigeria before the oil boom ,its totally nonsense and absolutely rubbish to say the north will suffer with or without the niger delta sorry with out the oil from niger delta area of the country , northern nigeria had at one time or the other fed the whole entire federation of federal republic of nigeria without exeption in collaboration with western region of nigeria where then we have the tallest cocoa house building at ibadan in the 1950s and 60s  before the discuvering of the oil and before the births of most of the present arrogant and stuborn ruffians of the present niger delta. if by accident or design GOD should take off the oil from nigeria today or dries off or becomes valueless ,
northern nigeria will wax stronger and its only then that every one will learn how to sucks from her mother,s Bosom s

I think presently there is a kind of mutual symbotic.That is they can't survive without each other.
