New York[RR]Igweocha-Abuja–Reacting to reports alleging that IPOB, South-South and former Oil Minister Alison Madueke who is based in United Kingdom, UK, organized the protest against Mohammadu Buhari in front of Nigerian High Commission Citizen Chris Udoh said accusers should stop the nonsense. He said even if Alison Madueke looted the treasury, she only did what IBB, Abacha, Obasanjo and others did, wondered why the focus is centered on former Oil Minister Diezani Alison Madueke.
In his words: “When men don’t want to take responsibility for their actions they turn around to blame grasses for extinction of timbers. Don’t ask me to account for the crumbs that you dropped. We need 100% of what belongs to us.

Citizen Chris Udoh: “God bless you for above observation. This is the main reason why we must takeover 100% of this resources now so that we can use it to grow alternative economy that can be sustainable beyond oil. Waiting for Abuja to offer you peanuts every month will not help us.
“Nigeria is not growing or moving forward. Our progression is mere counting of calendar days and years. Even when you have an idea to execute, you have to go get “government approval or documents” from one Yoruba or Hausa man in ‘authority” and he will deny you. Sometimes the bribes that go with it will be to high for you to bear. Most times refusal happens out of ethnic hate.
“It’s terrible to share a country with people who will label you a “minority” in order to deprive you of what is yours. Meanwhile nobody was created a minority.
“Look, when this oil finishes or is no longer a cash cow we in the Niger Delta will suffer the most because the so called “one Nigeria” Yoruba and Hausa brothers will not allow us to benefit from their resources..
“The Yorubas are developing alternative economy. They have infrastructure, they have sea ports, they have institutions, all of which were developed by our resources. The Hausas have vast fertile farmlands and irrigation dams that were built by our money, they can also survive after oil. Beyond polluted lands and degraded environment, what do we have to show for our oil wealth. Will I be telling my grand children that we once had oil but someone stole them.
“Nigeria as is will continue to plummet downwards. But we will be better off when divided as independent nations. By that time Innoson motors will not be forced by one hausa man or a Yoruba man in ‘authority’ to move his factory to the north or to lagos as a precondition for his existence.
We in Akwa will not have to compare ourselved with states in Africa but to stand out in technology and growth.
“Well, I don’t need to say too much because we will not need your approval to cede, all that we need is to keep educating our own people.. Once we are able to move their mentality out of the old master servant slavery believes, the job is done.
“How could people have been cheating us for this long and we kept quiet. Thank God this spell is over.
Certain Ola Kassim, MD, said this:”Brother Chris: I will readily concede that you have anchored your grievances on a few solid grounds that cannot be easily ignored. Most decent Nigerians from outside of the Niger Delta would agree that a lot of injustice has been Inflicted on the peoples of Niger Delta by successive governments of Nigeria since independence.
