Amnesty ??? I think we all missed the point here. To start with, Amnesty is a pardon a state gives to Individuals or group of individuals who takes up arms against the legitimate authority or a State for no reason or for a reason that doesn't pass the test of eguity and natural justice. Here the State has take up arms against innocent, hapless and defenceless people killing them and subjecting them to perpetual slavery. These same people that are been massacred and genocide been commited against them are now being branded as criminals by the perpetrator of the worst crimes, Nigeria State. I think it is the Niger Deltan People that should grant the State amnesty. But due to the sycophant and apologist that are from that place, the table was turned against the Niger Deltans.
In conclusion, the State should apologies to the people of Niger Deltans and God Almighty

It is on unfortunate that this is happening in this great country (Nigeria), when the South West and the North where producing Cocoa and Pyramids respectively, they were collecting 50% per cent of their produce, what make the case of Niger Delta different, The Minister for petroleum (Dr. Riwan Lukman) recently announced that Federal Government is realizing Eighteen Billion Naira on daily bases from oil, this means that they make Eighteen Billion Naira from Niger Delta on daily bases, what stop them from given One Billion Naira Only to each of these state on daily bases, where this huge money is been generated before they will come and star sharing the money. The issue is not Ministry of Niger Delta neither amnesty.   
May God bless this Nation.




   so if they give the niger delta states one billion naira each,that should be six billion plus the thirteen percent then wat happens to the other parts of the country?...i dont agree that we must control all our resources to the detriment of other parts of the nigerian state,that the westerners developed the west with money from cocoa was because they had leaders that used the cocoa windfall to develop that part of the country....within the last ten years,do a survey of top ten politicians that looted state funds while in office,at least seven of them are from the niger delta.
