  1. Its no News.
    We all know this right from time of Tam David West. And that is why the Boko Haram problem has lasted this long.

    They are only saying what we all know.

    Remember the story of digging a hole only to bring our water.

    • I hope the NE & NW can now go their way and let the rest of us be in peace now that they’ve found oil up north?

  2. If it is true, to God be the glory. The North will leave South alone now and secede. The contraption called Nigeria has been under the bondage of the North, and their critical interest has been the oil in the Niger Delta. That’s why Buhari planted Hausa/Fulanis at strategic positions in NNPC, LNG.
