"Onitsha Indigens Protests Over Exclusion From Oil Producing States" ( Details )

Wronged oil-generating localities in Anambra State, on the stage of Host Communities of Nigeria Producing Oil and Gas, HOSCON, yesterday, embarked on a peaceful demonstration against what they termed “continued exclusion of Anambra from the oil-producing states in Nigeria, despite its declaration as an oil-producing state by former President Goodluck Jonathan on August 30, 2012.”
They said it was silly that disregarding the commercial amount of oil and gas being explored in the state and sold outside the state, the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, and Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, are yet to place Anambra in the periodical of oil-producing states to empower it profit from the 13 percent oil determination recipe.The demonstrators conveyed notices with engravings as  “We are Anambra, we are oil-producing state’; ‘DPR declare us so,” “Anambra is qualified and deserved to be included among oil-producing states;” “Stop oil bunkering in Anambra State;” “Give us our 13 percent derivation;” “Elf Oil, what is happening at OPL 817 upgrade?” “Sterling Global is stealing Anambra silly” and “DPR confirms the activities of oil prospecting companies in Anambra,” among others.
