This demand is based on a sincere appraisal of the problems that plague the various ethnic nationalities that were forcefully conscripted into this dubious enterprise called Nigeria.
Each ethnic nationality must be allowed to decide if and whether they would like to continue in this uneventful and retrogressive sojourn within the Nigerian state.
Ijaws especially have had a very painful experience within the enterprise called Nigeria. A truly painful one driven not only because of the insincerity of the Nigerian state towards resolving the Niger Delta question but also due the lack of real and structured leadership amongst the people of the Ijaw and Niger Delta territory.
Leaders of the region have continued to fall prey to cheap and cunning bargains from the forces that lord over the Nigerian state. They get easily lured by flimsy carrots dangled before them. Yet they always miss out from the real pie. Go and find out how many people from the Niger Delta have oil lifting rights or marginal field of strong commercial value.
It is therefore crucial and critical that a Sovereign National Conference be convened so that all people especially from the Niger Delta will sit down and decide if they want to continue to this contraption called Nigeria.
...
Rehabilitation is a systematic process. Given the right response from the Nigerian state and those that lord over it, the process will run itself without inhibition.
3. Accountability in government Vs Corruption
Corruption had eaten deeply into the fabric of the Nigerian state.
...
We should therefore expect that there is a limit to which Yar'Adua can go in fighting corruption in Nigeria.
...
Corruption cannot be removed from the current polity until the Nigerian state gets its political system right and acceptable leaders are elected or appointed to positions of authority, privilege and power.
The political process must therefore be completely overhauled. We do not believe that the current people in government can have the boldness to confront the current situation as it is.
4. Environmental Integrity Vs Pollution
Our environment continues to be destroyed everyday by the criminal activities of oil and gas exploitation and exploration without strict conformance to acceptable international standards. Farmlands and creeks continue to bear the brunt of these activities.
...
Punishment must be meted out for those whose facilities cause oil spillage.
...
Today, they have become an added burden on the communities and societies over which they were called upon to police and administer peace and security.
More than 70% of the soldiers deployed under the JTF tag are themselves worse brigands than the so-called criminal elements that they were called upon to check. Most of these soldiers are very poorly educated and heavily unschooled in the art of peace keeping. Many of them are criminals who have infiltrated the armed forces of the Nigerian state the same way 'criminals' have infiltrated the ranks of the heroic combatants of the Ijaw and Niger Delta struggle.
Let it be known that most members of the Joint Task Force are gun runners, oil bunkerers, petty thieves and not peace and security keepers.
Evil begets evil.
...
What we have in the Niger Delta today is a case of Criminals in uniform and criminals in the creeks.
...
However, let us remind ourselves that the special status that was recommended by the Willinks Commission for the Ijaws in the Niger Delta and their Ogoni brothers as a result of their peculiarly difficult terrain has now been bastardized into a 9-state Niger Delta Development Commission thereby diluting the efficiency of planned interventionist programs leaving the Ijaw territory largely underdeveloped.
We demand therefore that the Special Status recommended by the Willinks Commission for the Ijaw territory be immediately declared.
...
· Jobs & Businesses- Communities in the Ijaw and Niger territory should be given stronger participatory roles in the oil and gas industry.
...
All qualified students of the Niger Delta should be given immediate scholarship to any university of their choice in any part of the world and more vocational centers must be established with funds from PTDF.
...
IT was knocks yesterday for the Joint Task Force (JTF) as the Ijaw National Congress (INC) and the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) condemned attacks on two suspected militant camps in Rivers State.
...
The JTF Commander, Brigadier General Sarkin Yarkin Bello, had on Tuesday insisted that the military has a responsibility to ensure and maintain internal security, hence would not relent from checking the activities of all militants in the state.
...
Okoko told The Guardian yesterday that the decision of the JTF to commence bombardment of suspected militant camps barely 48 hours after MEND announced a cease-fire, was a clear indication that some section of the military did not want the crisis resolved.
...
The INC has meanwhile appealed to the militants to refrain from acts capable of stalling the Sunday cease-fire declared by MEND after seven days of intense attacks on the nation's oil installation which forced Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) to declare force majeure last Friday.
However, MEND spokesperson, Jomo Gbomo, said the though the unilateral cease-fire it declared on Sunday was still on course, the military and oil companies would soon witness another spate of attacks at an appropriate time.

MEND declares ceasefire in Niger Delta
...
AFTER one week of sustained attacks on oil facilities in Rivers State, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has announced a ceasefire following intervention by some Ijaw leaders in the Niger Delta. Meanwhile, the Joint Task Force (JTF) whose attack on MEND bases and seven Tombia communities penultimate Saturday triggered militant attacks and the President of the Ijaw National Congress (INC) have welcomed the development. MEND spokesperson, Jomo Gbomo, yesterday announced that the militants who had attacked over six oil and gas facilities belonging to mainly Shell Petroleum Development Company and Chevron since September 13 have decided to downgrade the oil war code-named 'Hurricane Barbarossa' to a state of alert code-named "Tropical Storm Vigilant."
...
His words: "After one week of intense lopsided fighting and an unprecedented sabotage on the oil industry prompted by an unprovoked attack on one of our positions, including indiscriminate attacks on civilian communities, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) will downgrade the oil war code-named Hurricane Barbarossa to a state of alert code-named "Tropical Storm Vigilant."
...
According to Gbomo, "Effective 0100 Hrs, September 21, 2008, exactly one week we launched our reprisal, MEND will begin a unilateral ceasefire till further notice.
...
According to Gbomo, "Effective 0100 Hrs, September 21, 2008, exactly one week we launched our reprisal, MEND will begin a unilateral ceasefire till further notice.
...
MEND explained that it decided to stop further attacks even at a time of victory over the military and alleged utter helplessness of the oil companies operating in the Niger Delta. MEND, however cautioned that it only speaks for itself and would not vouch for the other angry groups that aligned with it during the one-week of persistent attacks on oil facilities. He said: "We hope that the military has learnt a bitter lesson.
...
Due to the severity of the attacks, Shell was forced to declare force majeure on Nigeria's oil export. JTF spokesperson, Lt. Col. Sagir Musa, described MEND's gesture as good for the militants, the Niger Delta region, the nation and the international community. He explained that the military was disposed to the amicable resolution of the crisis in the region and would continue to monitor situation on ground to ascertain that MEND was genuine.
...
And the new High Commissioner of India to Nigeria, Mr. Mahesh Sachdev, has suggested speedy social development plans of the Niger Delta as a way to bring a quick solution to ongoing crisis in the area.
...
I can say that our relationship with Nigeria is one of the best all over the world.
...
We would like to see India collaborating with Nigeria in these sectors.
...
He made the appeal at the opening of a three-day workshop on National Peace Building and Conflict Resolution at the weekend, warning that if current situation of kidnap, street gangsters and other vices continue, nothing meaningful can be gained.
