“Since 1957, over sixty (60) years ago, when Oil & Gas was discovered in commercial quantities especially in OGONI-LAND by Shell Petroleum Development Company Ltd. (SPDC) and subsequently in the entire NIGER/DELTA REGION, no doubt; the indigenes have suffered untold hardship as a result of Environmental Degradation, Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide, Water Pollutions, Oil Spillage on farm lands and the recent Black Soots ravaging the entire Niger/Delta Region. This is as a result of incessant destruction of Stolen Crude Oil in the Niger/Delta and Gas flaring
“Over Sixty (60) Years now, the Niger/Delta Region have been the BURDEN-BEARERS of Oil & Gas Exploration and Production by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Ltd. in Nigeria.

“NNPC LTD GCEO Mele Kolo Kyari, still under your watch, you broke Guinness Book of records for highest Arbitrary Hike in Fuel Pump Prices in the New Millennium, causing untold hardship to the ordinary Nigerian mass on the Streets
