The youths of Ndokwa ethnic nationality in Delta State under the aegis of Youth wing of Neku Union, apex socio-cultural umbrella of the Ndokwa people worldwide have sent a threatening message to the federal government with regards to oil exploitation in their area.
The aggrieved youths gave the federal government a two weeks ultimatum to attend to their needs which is addressing the marginalization of their people in the oil sector.
They lamented that despite the fact that the Ndokwa nation had been generating about 50 per cent oil and gas resources for government, their area has been neglected.
In a statement by the Youth President, Afam Ogbolu who made this speech in Kwalez, he said;
“We call on the Federal Government to quickly attend to our demands in two weeks, or all oil facilities, including those of Nigeria Agip Oil Company, Sterling Global Oil, Pillar Oil, Platform Petroleum Company, Chorus Energy, Midwestern Oil and Gas, and others in Ndokwa nation, will be brought to their knees.
“We wish to state that all marginal oil fields in Ndokwa nation belong to Ndokwa people, and none should be sold to anybody under any guise, but to Ndokwa people; failure by the FG to try to sell any oil field in Ndokwa land will be met with full-scale resistance.”
