The governor of Rivers State NYESOM WIKE has wondered why the gold in ZAMFARA is not a national cake like the oil in Rivers State.
Speaking to news men in Port Hacourt, WIKE who was reacting to the news of CBN demanding for
# 5b gold from the ZAMFARA government wondered if same gesture can be allowed in his state.
As monitored by our team, WIKE stated that he is looking forth to having a gold well in ZAMFARA soon.
According to the governor;.
Since the discovery of oil in our region, we are meant to believe that it is a national cake. Even imams in the North have oil wells in my state and neighboring states.
Our land are spilled as a result of this oil yet there are no plans by the federal government to clean up our devastated lands.
We are given 13% of something in our backyard which God blessed us with…
To my greatest surprise, I saw the news of CBN demanding for #5b gold from the ZAMFARA state government….
So the ZAMFARA government are managing it but in my own region, many northerners are oil well owners.
I am looking forth to having a gold well in ZAMFARA state soon since it’s all about mineral resources in our country. Not only me but people of my state.
If this is not allowed, then let it be known that it is an injustice against us and we will know what to do going further…
This is very sad… Oil in Rivers is a national cake but theirs are not….
