FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA'S
INVASION OF ODI,
Thanks for your thoughts.
President Obasanjo's letter was both militaristic and condescending.
We can only hope that the Bayelsa Governor's response will be SO
COMPREHENSIVE and UNCOMPROMISING as to lay down the full reasons why the
Obasanjo letter was unwelcome, and that there are more fundamental problems
in Bayelsa and the Niger-Delta Region that are not being addressed. Those
who have Alamieyeseigha's ear - or who have the ear of those who have his
ears - must ensure that this opportunity to put a marker down with respect
to State/Federal rights is not lost.
