It took less than 6 months for the senate to pass the North East Development Commission (NEDC) BILL.

It has taken more than 14 years and 4 Presidents, yet the PIB bill is nowhere to be passed.

It took less than 4 Hours for Kano State to be smuggled into North East Region for the purpose of enjoying from NEDC

For more than 10 years Northern Senators have be trying to define 'Oil bearing communities' does it include villages with petrol stations and pipelines?

It took less than 3 months for us to agree to set aside 3 % of total VAT accruals to fund the reconstruction of NE.

For more than one generation, we are still arguing how to fund the clean up or hydro carbon polluted sites in the Niger Delta and Ogoni.

The Board of NEDC is made up entirely of people from the North and North East.

The Board of NDDC is made up of every tom dick and harry to ensure adequate geographical spread.

The FG wants to borrow 39 billion US dollars for 'capital' projects! Not one of this project is located in the entire South East! Yet, oil located in the south east will be used to upset the loan when due

This is our country! This is our story.
