PRESS RELEASE:  ECOWAS COURT PUNISHES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FOR DELAY TACTICS IN NIGER DELTA OIL BLOCK OWNERSHIP LANDMARK CASE

In the on going hearing in the Ecowas Community Court of Justice, Suit No: ECW/CCJ/APP/20/15, holden at Abuja on the 12th October, 2016 between Mr. Nosa Ehanire-Osaghae, Jonah Gbemre, Aiko Obobaifo & Daniel Ikponmwosa (Plaintiffs) suing on behalf of themselves and the People of Niger Delta Vs the Federal Republic of Nigeria (Defendant), as regards the ownership of the Niger Delta Oil Bocks. Before their Lordships  Hon. Justice Friday Chijioke Nwoke (Presiding), Hon. Justice micah Wilkins Wright (Member) and Hon. Justice Alioune Sall (Member), continued on Wednesday, 12th October, 2016.

Honorable Justice Friday Chijioke Nwoke presiding over the panel of three Honorable Justices lambasted the Defendant’s counsel, saying he FUMBLED, when he initially announced his appearance for the Defendant and proceeded to move a motion for the Defendant, only for him to back track and plead for the adjournment of the matter as he was only “holding brief” for the lawyers of the Ministry of Justice who were indisposed to appear in court. That the proper thing to do was to announce his “appearance” only to hold brief for his learned colleague and take a date on his behalf for adjournment without moving any motion on behalf of the Defendant as if he was the defence counsel.

That was when the Plaintiff’s Counsel Barrister Sophia Okoedion objected the defence counsel’s move for an adjournment stating the fact that the Federal Government’s lawyers were using it as a “delay tactic” ploy, to unnecessarily prolong the matter, after having failed to appear in court in the previous hearing date without even proffering any plausible excuse for their non-appearance.

The fiery Human Rights Lawyer pleaded with their Lordships, that if she could come all the way from the Niger Delta to Abuja for the matter, why couldn’t the Defence counsels from the Federal Ministry of Justice in the same Abuja come to court to defend their client? Wherein she asked the honorable court to use its own discretion to award cost.

Upon which their Lordships deliberated on the matter and ruled for the second consecutive time, that hearing will once again be adjourned for November 11th, 2016 so that Defendant’s counsel will be given an opportunity to “appear” in court to defend their client for the sake of fair hearing and justice and consequently awarded cost of N30,000 against the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

It will be noted that on the previous hearing date of June 16th,, 2016 the matter was adjourned to October 12th 2016, as the defendant and their counsels from the Federal Ministry of Justice, failed to appear in court to enter their plea. Only for the same incident to be repeated again which duly attracted the PUNISHMENT of the Ecowas Court as a deterrent to the Federal Government’s “irksome & annoying” strategy of trying to delay the full determination of the oral process in court. Before the landmark judgment is finally delivered as to who has the OWNERSHIP RIGHTS of the oil & gas Natural Resources of the Niger Delta between the Niger Delta People and the Federal Republic of Nigeria according to International Laws & Treaties to which the Nigerian State is signatory bound.

Barrister Sophia Okoedion reportedly made it clear that it is evidently because the Federal Republic of Nigeria has no “substantive claim” to the Ownership Rights of the Niger Delta Oil Blocks, according to International Laws and Treaties which supersedes its own Constitutional Laws & Acts, is the obvious reason for its “reluctance” and “coyness” to appear in court to defend such its claim under cross-examination in a free, fair and impartial International Court of Competent Jurisdiction.

She declared that she has confidence in the Ecowas Court competence and jurisprudence in delivering an erudite legal analysis and unimpeachable judgment in this international landmark case that will become Locus Classicus.

BUHARI RUNNING AWAY FROM NIGER-DELTA OIL BLOCK CASE IN ECOWAS COURT

NIGER DELTA OIL BLOCKS OWNERSHIP DISPUTE:  FG FAILS TO TURN UP IN ECOWAS COURT

In the Ecowas Community Court of Justice, Suit No: ECW/CCJ/APP/20/15, holden at Abuja on the 16th June 2016, between Mr. Nosa Ehanire-Osaghae, Jonah Gbemre, Aiko Obobaifo & Daniel Ikponmwosa (Plaintiffs) suing on behalf of themselves and the people of Niger Delta Vs the Federal Republic of Nigeria (Defendant), The  matter was adjourned to October 12th 2016, as the defendant and their counsels from the Federal Ministry of Justice, failed to appear in court to enter their plea.

During the hearing, the counsel to the plaintiffs, Barrister Sophia Okoedion, urged the panel of three Justices led by Justice Nwoke to strike out the plaintiffs’ motion for default judgment that was earlier filed against the defendant when the defendant had failed to respond to the application originating the process within the stipulated 30 days limit. Because the defendant had already filed a motion for extension of time to file their defence out of time, and their statement of  defense  in response to the plaintiffs’ application.

The International Court made an order that the plaintiffs’ motion for default judgment be withdrawn. Consequently, the counsel to the plaintiffs, Barrister H.S Okoedion moved the Honorable Court to commence proceedings in spite of the “conspicuously inexplicable” absence of the defendant who ought to know better than to refrain from appearing before such an eminent court in such a sensitive matter.

For the sake of justice and fair hearing in order to allow the defendant the opportunity to appear in court, Presiding Justice Nwoke and the two other eminent Justices, adjourned the case to 12th October 2016 for hearing to commence after the Honorable Court resumes from its two months vacation from July – September 2016.

Speaking on behalf of the plaintiffs, the Human Rights Lawyer, affirmed the plaintiffs’ confidence in the Ecowas Court as an established defender of the human rights of Ecowas citizens. Furthermore, that the African Union Charter (Article 21) and United Nations Covenant (Article 1) to which the defendant (FGN) is signatory bound, makes it explicitly clear that the natural resources of the Niger Delta belongs exclusively to the people of Niger Delta. Therefore if a member state signs that treaty, then that member state must submit to that treaty!

There is no acceptable excuse or reason. Not even a member state’s constitutional law is excusable, as all member states are treaty bound to put in place the appropriate legislation required to abide by their treaty obligations, that they free willingly ratified according to International Law. Some specific articles of International Law in the African Union and United Nations Treaties ratified by the Federal Republic of Nigeria  which the plaintiffs are relying on, in their suit states Inter Alia:

African Charter On Human And Peoples  Rights (ACHPR):

ARTICLE 21:

  1. All peoples shall FREELY DISPOSE OF THEIR WEALTH AND NATURAL RESOURCES. This right shall be exercised in the exclusive interest of the people. IN NO CASE SHALL A PEOPLE BE DEPRIVED OF IT.

Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties – May 23, 1969 (VCLT)

ARTICLE 26:

Every treaty in force is BINDING UPON THE PARTIES to it and must be performed by them in good faith.”

ARTICLE 27: A party may not invoke the provisions of its INTERNAL LAW AS JUSTIFICATION for its failure to perform a treaty.

International Law Commission, Draft Articles on Responsibility of States for Internationally Wrongful Acts, November 2001, Supplement No. 10 (A/56/10)

ARTICLE 3 (Characterization of an act of a State as internationally wrongful):

The characterization of an act of a State as internationally wrongful is governed by international law. Such characterization is not affected by the characterization of the same act as lawful by internal law.

ARTICLE 12 (Existence of a breach of an international obligation):

There is a breach of an international obligation by a State when an act of that State is not in conformity with what is required of it by that obligation, regardless of its origin or character.

ARTICLE 25 (Necessity):

  1. Necessity may not be invoked by a State as a ground for precluding the wrongfulness of an act not in conformity with an international obligation of that State unless the act:

 (a)  Is the only way for the State to safeguard an essential interest against a grave and imminent peril; and

 (b)  Does not seriously impair an essential interest of the State or States towards which the obligation exists, or of the international community as a whole.

  1. In any case, [ECONOMIC] NECESSITY may not be invoked by a State as ground for precluding wrongfulness if:

 (a)  The international obligation in question excludes the possibility of invoking necessity; or

 (b)  The State has contributed to the situation of necessity.

ARTICLE 31 (Reparations for violation / beach):

  1. The responsible State is under an obligation to make full reparation for the injury caused by the internationally wrongful act.
  2. Injury includes any damage, whether material or moral, caused by the internationally wrongful act of a State.

ARTICLE 32 (Irrelevance of internal law against violation / breach):

The responsible State MAY NOT RELY ON THE PROVISIONS OF ITS INTERNAL LAW AS JUSTIFICATION for failure to comply with its obligations under this Part.

ARTICLE 33 (Scope of international obligations set out in this Part):

  1. The obligations of the responsible State set out in this Part may be owed to another State, to several States, or to the international community as a whole, depending in particular on the character and content of the international obligation and on the circumstances of the breach.
  2. This Part is without prejudice to any right, arising from the international responsibility of a State, which may accrue directly to ANY PERSON OR ENTITY other than a State.

ARTICLE 34 (Forms of reparation):

Full reparation for the injury caused by the internationally wrongful act shall take the form of RESTITUTION, COMPENSATION AND SATISFACTION, either singly or in combination, in accordance with the provisions of this chapter.

ARTICLE 36 (Compensation):

  1. The State responsible for an internationally wrongful act is under an OBLIGATION TO COMPENSATE FOR THE DAMAGE CAUSED THEREBY, insofar as such damage is not made good by restitution.
  2. The compensation shall cover any FINANCIALLY ASSESSABLE DAMAGE including loss of profits insofar as it is established.

Conclusively, she said it is evidently clear  from the above treaties that International Law super-cedes National Law in every interpretation of their text and tenor in the same way Federal Law super-cedes State Law. and that when National law is in direct conflict with International law the latter MUST take precedence over the former and that without remedy. This she re-iterates is in line with the main substance of the plaintiffs’ prayers before the Honorable Court, as listed below:

  1. That the Federal Republic of Nigeria has violated the fundamental human rights of Niger Deltans by depriving them of their God given oil blocks vis-à-vis natural resources which they allocated to foreign oil companies and non-indigenes from other parts of the country at their own expense and impoverishment.

 

  1. That the Federal Republic of Nigeria has violated the fundamental human rights of Niger Deltans to life and a healthy environment by the hazardous flaring of gas in their host communities unabated for the last 30 years, which has resulted in many health casualties, fatalities and untimely deaths without adequate reliefs and compensations.

 

  1. That the Federal Republic of Nigeria should put a stop to all acquiring, renewal, award, allocation, transfer, prospecting, buying and selling of oil blocks and their assets until the hearing and determination of substantive matter.

 

  1. That the Federal Republic of Nigeria should re-allocate the ownership of all onshore and offshore oil blocs in the Niger Delta region back to the indigenous oil communities forthwith in accordance with its United Nations and African Union treaty obligations and statutory international law.

 

  1. That the Federal Republic of Nigeria should immediately pay remedial environmental damages to the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) in order for them to speedily facilitate the total remediation of the oil polluted farming lands and fishing waters in Niger Delta region to the tune of $30 billion. For the excess of 9 million barrels of spilt crude oil in the Niger Delta region and for the hazardous gas flaring over the last fifty years of oil exploration and exploitation in the Niger Delta.

 

  1. That the Federal Republic of Nigeria, should not impede and mitigate but rather assist and facilitate an enabling environment for the people of Niger Delta to conduct a peaceful and democratic Referendum to exercise their inalienable Right to Self Determination as enshrined in the United Nations and African Union treaties which it ratified and is signatory bound in accordance with the statutes of international law.

 

ANY OTHER ORDER OR FURTHER ORDERS that this Honourable Court may deem fit to make in the circumstances of this case.

Finally she called upon all genuinely concerned, affected and aggrieved Niger Deltans, host communities, oil & gas stakeholders, environmentalists and civil society groups to support this noble cause to provide a peaceful, legal, lasting and final solution to the intractable and transient issue of the Niger Delta in the International Court of Law. Just as it was with the Bakassi Peninsula case at the International Court of Justice. This is the 21st century where the Rule of Law must prevail!

EDO STATE OBEN OIL BLOCS OWNED BY SEPLAT
(THE OIL-FIRM OF THE EMIR OF KANO – BAYERO’S FAMILY)

nigeria_oil_gas_and_products_pipelines_map-t

SEPLAT, ANGLING FOR DUAL LISTING, BEEFS UP BOARD

Section: Petroleum People · July 10, 2013

Emir Ado Bayero & Jean-Francois Henin (Chairman of M&P): Directors of SEPLAT

Seplat has appointed Basil Omiyi, former Chairman of Shell Companies in Nigeria and Ifeakor Omogui Okauro, the country’s former Chief Taxman, to its Board of Directors, as it prepares to list the company in both the London and the Nigerian Stock Exchanges. “The listing is a priority for them”, says a source at the Department of Petroleum Resources, Nigeria’s industry regulator, “they are keen on expanding the funding base and instituting strong corporate governance”.

Seplat is the largest indigenous African producer of hydrocarbons with net oil and gas production of about 32,000BOEPD. It is hoping to boost net hydrocarbon production to 65,000BOEPD by end of 2015. Currently, it is owned by three companies: Maurel et Prom, the French independent, holds 45% stake, with Shebah Petroleum and Platform Petroleum, both Nigerian companies, holding  33% and 22% respectively. A listing on the London main stock exchange will take the company global, even if it stripsit of Nigerian indigeneity. The board membership is now composed of A.B.C. Orjiakor (Chairman), Austin Avuru (Managing Director), Stuart Connal (Executive Director), NASIR ADO BAYERO, Jean-Francois Henin (Chairman of M&P), Macaulay Ofurhie, Charles Okeahlama, Ifueko Omogui-Okauro and Basil Omiyi.

EDITOR’S NOTE

As a rule of thumb and standard practice, the names of these “appointee” southerners you see on their board list is just a deceptive ruse to cover up for the northerners like ADO BAYERO who is the real owner controlling up to 55% stake of the oil block together with his European partner FRANCOIS HENIN with 45% stake while we EDO DELTAN ancestral owners of the entire land, waters plus oil block owns zero %

 

MAKES SENSE TO THEM BUT NOT TO US???

 

ASUOKPU / UMUTU marginal oil fields is operated by Seplat Petroleum. Seplat is owned by Prince Nasiru Ado Bayero, cousin to the Central Bank Governor Lamido Sanusi. This oil field has the capacity of 300,000 barrels of oil daily. This translates to $30million dollars daily at average benchmark of $100 dollars per barrel. Deducting all sundry taxes, royalties etc , this field can yield $12 million dollars daily for the owners.  Imagine that an emir who is merely an administrator and not even royalty will come all the way from Kano State to Edo State to be staking a claim of ownership of our best oil blocs where the Oba of Benin is King. Tell me please what kind of qualification does this emir or his company have to win a legitimate bid for oil Blocs if truly it is awarded by merit? So they think that Emir Sanusi’s family will continue to drain our oil field in the billions of dollars every year and we Edolites will fold our arms and be watching? We’ll see ourselves in court soon!

ASSET OVERVIEW 

OPERATIONS – OVERVIEW OF SEPLAT ASSETS

Seplat Petroleum Development Company (SEPLAT) is a leading indigenous exploration and production company currently operating in onshore Niger Delta basin Nigeria.  The company has a 45% participating interest in 3 oil blocks (OML’s 4, 38 and 41) which are geographically spread across Edo and Delta States in Nigeria. Seplat is the operator of the 3 blocks on behalf of the NPDC/SEPLAT JV. The JV oil production from these blocks has grown from 18,000 barrels per day at inception in 2010 to the current rate of 60,000 barrels per day. Gas production is presently 110MMscfd. Production is mainly from 5 Fields (Amukpe, Oben, Okporhuru, Ovhor, and Sapele Fields) with plans to bring additional fields on-stream in the future.  SEPLAT has a participating interest in the Umuseti/Igbuku Fields (OPL 283 following an agreement with Pillar Oil to acquire a 40% in 1 June 2013. Production from Umuseti Field (OPL 283) is currently circa. 2,500bopd with net share to Seplat of 1,000bopd. 

OML 4

The block covers an area of 267 square kilometres, and some 78 kilometres North East of Warri, Delta State. Oben field is situated in OML 4 and it is the only producing field in this OML. The field has a 60,000bpd capacity flow station, a 90MMscfd capacity Non-Associated Gas Plant. Production operations of this field and its facilities are supported by Oben Field Logistics Base (FLB). This field is key to the future gas expansion of SEPLAT. 

OML 38

The block is about 2094 square kilometres and lies about 48 kilometres North of Warri, Delta State. The Amukpe Field is one of the two producing fields in the block. The second field, Ovhor straddles OML 38 and OML 41. Seplat liquid treatment plant facility is located within Amukpe field.

DEPRIVATION & DERIVATION PRINCIPLES: WHY THE NORTHERN OIL BARONS ARE SO RICH AND THE NIGER DELTANS ARE SO POOR

 

THE WILL: Written By Ross Alabo-George On Feb 27, 2012, imaginasion@gmail.com

Now, I need to tackle the sensitive question of revenue allocation that has infuriated the Mallam Lamido Sanusi and Mallam Elrufai and their likes. Niger Delta states get higher revenue allocation because they contribute virtually all the eggs in the national crate. That is expected. Albeit the 13% remains grossly inadequate, the former CBN Governor has suggested that his Boko boys are resisting the disparity.

I want to posit that the North-East through their aristocrats and ex-military rulers (except Gen. Mohammed Buhari) rake in more oil money (from the Niger Delta) individually than any Niger Delta state, and collectively more than twice the entire Niger Delta put together. In this disquisition, I have attempted to show that 80% of crude oil and gas produced by indigenous companies is controlled by the North-East. It is an area they have well conquered through General IBB, Abacha and Abdulsalami. However, the loots never get back home. In this first part I will attempt to describe the very uneven nature of the distribution of the nation’s wealth among the Northern aristocratic families and their military generals who for decades looted Nigeria. They did so blatantly, and while Nigeria was weeping about oil windfall loot and others, Nigerians would wail if they know how much of the nation’s resources these folks allocated to themselves and their business fronts before they stepped aside.

Hang on your hats and let us therefore begin:

1) To the state of origin of Boko Haram: Borno State. Enter Cavendish Petroleum, the operators of OML 110 – with good yielding OBE field. This oil block was awarded to Alhaji Mai Deribe – the Borno patriarch, who even in death will remain the richest man dead or alive in the history of Borno state- by General Sani Abacha on the 8th of July, 1996. OML 110 has a proven oil reserve in excess of 500 million barrels (More than the entire 300milliom barrels reserve of Sudan). As yet with the capacity to produce about 120,000 barrels of crude oil daily from its OBE 4 and OBE 5 wells. At current production levels, the Mai Deribes net circa N4billion monthly in crude oil sales (Using current oil price of $100pb). Cavendish Petroleum’s N4bn monthly net dwarfs the monthly statutory allocation of Borno which is about N3bn and its internally generated revenue staggers around N1billion.

2) I will then shift to the centre of the Fulani aristocratic hegemony in the North East – Kano. Here. Enter the Fulani Prince Nasiru Ado Bayero, Mallam (Prince) Emir of Kano Sanusi Lamido Sanusi’s cousin. He is a Key shareholder and director in Seplat/Platform petroleum operators of the Asuokpu/Umutu Marginal Field with a capacity of 300,000 barrels monthly and A 30mmfcsd gas plant capable of feeding 100MT of LPG.

3) Enter South Atlantic Petroleum Limited (SAPETRO). South Atlantic Petroleum (SAPETRO) is a Nigerian Oil Exploration and Production Company that was created in 1995 by General T. Y. Danjuma. General Sani Abacha awarded the Oil Prospecting License (OPL) 246 to SAPETRO in February 1998. The block covers a total area of 2,590km2 (1,000 sq. miles). SAPETRO partnered with Total Upstream Nigeria Ltd (TUPNI) and Brasoil Oil Services Company Nigeria Ltd (Petrobras) to start prospecting on OPL246.

Akpo, a condensate field was discovered in April 2000 with the drilling of the first exploration well (Akpo 1) on the block. Other discoveries made on OPL 246 include the Egina Main, Egina South, Preowei and Kuro (Kuro was suspended as a dry gas/minor oil discovery). In June 2006, General TY Danjuma divested part of its contractor rights and obligations to China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) for $1 billion (N160bn). Akpo exports about 230,000 barrels of condensate daily. Condensate export is not regulated by OPEC, so SAPETRO/TOTAL exports as much as possible each day. Egina exports about 75,000 barrels of oil daily. Therefore, Akpo and Egina fields export just over 300,000 barrels of oil/condensate daily (three times what the country Ghana exports). SAPETRO (TY Danjuma) get 25% of this. Now, note I have not talked about the gas component – it’s about 2.5 trillion cubic feet. The money SAPETRO nets each month is more than the monthly statutory allocation of all the Niger Delta states combined and also more than the oil revenue of Ghana.

Do Your Math.

5) Enter AMNI International Petroleum Development Company. AMNI owns two oil blocks – OML 112 and OML 117. In the production sharing contract, AMNI gets 60% for owning the oil block and Total gets 40% for providing technical advice. OML 112 was awarded on the 12/02/1998 while OML 117 was awarded 06/08/1999 all by Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar. Operations started on both blocks 0n 26/02/2006.

Vitol lifts 350,000 barrels of crude oil daily from Nigeria. The Okoro and Setu fields in OML 112 are operated by Afren Energy, a company substantially controlled by Rilwanu Lukman. The Okoro and Setu oil fields have about 50 million barrels in reserve and currently produce/exports just a little below 20,000 barrels per day.

7) Enter Oriental Energy Resources Limited, a company owned by Alhaji Mohammed Indimi, a Fulani and close friend of General Ibrahim Babangida. Also worthy of note is that General IBB’s first son is married to Alhaji Mohammed Indimi’s daughter – Yakolo Indimi-Babangida, who also serves as a director in the company. Alhaji Indimi hails from Niger State. Oriental Energy Resources Limited runs three oil blocks: OML 115, the Okwok field and the Ebok field. OML 115 and Okwo are OML PSC, while Ebok is an OML JV.

Oba Obateru Akinrutan 

He is the Olugbo (traditional King) of Ugbo land, a small oil-rich community in Ondo state, Nigeria from the Itsekhiri oil fields in Delta State that was forcefully and unjustly ceded to Ondo State because they wanted the Yorubas to have their own oil producing state at the expense of the rightful owners who protested to have it back but in vain. He is the founder of Obat Oil, one of Nigeria’s largest privately-held oil trading companies which now owns more than 50 gas stations across Nigeria as well as one of the largest tank farms in Africa. He also owns an extensive portfolio of prime commercial and residential real estate in London and Nigeria. While the elders and Olof Warri are staring back at him without a single Oil Bucket talkless of Oil Bloc. Then they say to you we are all one Nigeria when they want to cheat and deceive you.  For how long will this British bondage continue before it is broken for ever? Wait till we get to court!

Now we know why this Oni of Ife who is not even royalty but the descendant of a palace priest is always been belligerent against the the first class Royal Monarch of Benin. Because he is siphoning away the oil from Edo Delta to amass untold wealth at our own impoverished expense. Very soon the oily  spoon will be removed from the mouths of the usurpers when we get court.

Revealed: Top Nigerian Monarchs With Oil Blocs!

by News Admin on May 2, 2013  | No comments           

Posted under: Business    

Street Journal’s findings have revealed that some of Nigeria’s top class traditional rulers have vested interests in the oil and gas sector with some of them linked with the ownership of oil blocs. It was also found out that ownership cuts across all the geo-political zones, though the South West seems to have a high percentage.

Most of the monarchs were gathered to have applied for oil blocs through their different companies, being well established businessmen before they became traditional rulers. Findings also revealed that some might have been offered oil blocs as a form of patronage by the Federal Government for their roles in helping to stabilize the country. Some however became proud owners of oil blocs by taking the advantage of having their kinsmen in charge of oil; using that leverage, they applied for oil blocs and licenses to lift crude oil.

After getting approval, Street Journal learnt that some of the royal fathers did an on-the-spot sale of their allocations while a few stayed on and started oil prospecting.

Though there are no laws forbidding traditional rulers from doing legitimate business, many have insinuated that political considerations and some other factors might not be ruled out in the award of the blocs, especially going by the frequency of distribution. Street Journal found out that in 1999, seven blocs were sold while only one was sold in year 2000. Nine were sold in 2001 and the same figure in 2002 while only seven were sold the following year. The figure rose to 34 in 2004, in 2005, a total of 25 oil blocs were sold while 8 and 7 were sold in 2006 and 2007 respectively.

The Arole Oodua and Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade is one of the prominent traditional rulers who have been named as owners of oil blocs in Nigeria. Findings revealed that the Ooni is linked to Alfred James Petroleum on account of his sons, three of who are directors of the company. Alfred James owns the Oil Prospecting License OPL 302 which was awarded in 1991

A northern traditional ruler whose name came up among owners is Alhaji Ado Bayero, the Emir of Kano. Like the Ooni, the Emir of Kano is believed to have stakes in many companies where he has some of his sons on the Board of Directors. One of them is the well loved Turakin Kano, Nasir Ado Bayero, who is a Director of Platform Petroleum, the owner of OML 38.

The Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo too is listed as one of the Directors of Oando. Findings revealed that Kabiyesi is listed as a non-executive Director.

Oba Frederick Akinruntan of the Obat Oil fame too appears on the list. Ever before he became the Olugbo of Ugbo Kingdom, he has been a major force in the oil and gas sector. Oba Akinruntan is listed on the board of Guarantee Petrol and Owena Oil, owners of OML 095. He is listed alongside Ondo State indigenes like Otunba Solomon Oladunni and the late Rufus Giwa.

A popular traditional ruler from the South South who is a prominent feature on the list is Dr Edmund Daukoru Mingi XIII, the Amayobo of Nembe Kingdom. The traditional ruler, who holds a PhD in Geology was a Special Adviser to the President on Petroleum as well as Minister of State for Energy and he also served as the President of the Oil Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in 2006. He is on the Board of Platform Petroleum.

FORBES AN AMERICAN BUSINESS MAGAZINE JUST RELEASED A LIST OF TOP 7 BLACK BILLIONAIRES HALF OF THEM  ARE NIGERIAN OIL-BLOC OWNERS 

The Black Billionaires 2014

Of the 1,645 people who made it to the 2014 FORBES list of the World’s Multi-Billionaires, 8 of them are black, up from 7 a year ago.

Nigerian cement tycoon Aliko Dangote is still the richest black person in the world, and he’s the richest by a long shot – $9.7 billion richer than Saudi-Ethiopian billionaire Mohammed Al-Amoudi.

This year, Nigerian oil tycoon Folorunsho Alakija joins American TV mogul Oprah Winfrey and Isabel dos Santos of Angola as the only black female billionaires on the FORBES billionaires list.

These are the 8 richest black people on earth:

1) Aliko Dangote, $25 billion

Nigerian, Sugar, Cement, Flour

The Nigerian-born Cement and commodities tycoon is the world’s richest black man. Last April, Dangote, 56, who made the bulk of his fortune trading in cement, sugar and flour, announced plans to build a private oil refinery in Nigeria. Expected to be completed in 2016, it will have a refining capacity of 400,000 barrels a day and reduce Nigeria’s dependence on oil imports. Dangote started out in business more than 3 decades ago by trading in commodities like cement, flour and sugar with a loan he received from his maternal uncle and went on to build the Dangote Group, the largest industrial conglomerate in West Africa. The company’s crown jewel is Dangote Cement, the $24 billion (Market Capitalization) cement manufacturer with interests in several African countries.

2) Mohammed Al-Amoudi, $15.3 billion

Saudi Arabian, Oil Refineries, Mining

Mohammed Al-Amoudi, the son of a Saudi father and Ethiopian mother, made his initial fortune in large-ticket construction projects in Saudi Arabia.

Midroc’s assets in Ethiopia include hotels, gold mines, leather factories, pharmaceuticals and cement manufacturing outfits. He also owns a 70% stake in the National Oil Company of Ethiopia. Outside Ethiopia, he owns oil refineries in Morocco and Sweden and oil fields off West Africa.

 

3) Mike Adenuga, $4.6 billion

Nigerian, Oil, Telecoms

Adenuga built his fortune in oil and mobile telecoms. His Conoil Producing Company was one of the first indigenous Nigerian companies to be granted an oil exploration license in the early 90s.  The company is the operator of six blocks in the Niger Delta and also owns a25% stake in the Joint Development Zone (JDZ) Block 4. He is also the founder and sole owner of Globacom, a Nigerian mobile phone network that has more than 24 million subscribers.

 

4) Isabel Dos Santos, $3.7 billion

Angolan, Investments

The oldest daughter of Angola’s president, Jose Eduardo dos Santos is Africa’s richest woman. Her holdings include a 25% stake in Angolan mobile phone company Unitel and a 25% stake in Angolan bank Banco BIC SA. Other holdings include a substantial stake in ZON Optimus, a listed Portuguese cable TV company and just under 20% of Banco BPI, one of Portugal’s largest publicly traded banks.

 

5) Patrice Motsepe, $2.9 billion

South African, Mining

South Africa’s first and only black billionaire is the founder of African Rainbow Minerals (ARM), a Johannesburg Stock Exchange-listed mining company that has in platinum, nickel, chrome, iron, manganese, coal, copper and gold. Motsepe is fast becoming one of Africa’s most prominent philanthropists. In February last year he announced plans to give away half the income generated from assets owned by his family to his charity, the Motsepe Family Foundation which supports causes affecting South Africa’s poor, including education, health, unemployment and advancing women.

 

6) Oprah Winfrey, $2.9 billion

American, Television

Oprah is still the richest African-American person in the world thanks largely to the 25 years of her profitable daytime TV show and earnings from her Harpo production company. Her cable channel, OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) is also cash flow positive for the first time and is enjoying favorable ratings as a result of securing exclusive TV interviews with headline-grabbers like disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, Beyonce and gay NBA player Jason Collins. One of America’s most generous philanthropists, Oprah continues to give to education causes and has spent about $100 million on the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.

 

7) Folorunsho Alakija, $2.5 billion

Nigerian, Oil

Nigeria’s first female billionaire is the founder of Famfa Oil, a Nigerian company that owns a substantial participating interest in OML 127, a lucrative oil block on the Agbami deep water oilfield in Nigeria. Alakija started off as a secretary in a Nigerian merchant bank in the 1970s, then quit her job to study fashion design in England. Upon her return, she founded a Nigerian fashion label that catered to upscale clientele, including Maryam Babangida, wife to Nigeria’s former military president Ibrahim Babangida.

 

8) Abdulsamad Rabiu, $1.2 billion

Nigerian, Cement, Sugar

Nigeria’s newest billionaire is 54 year-old Abdulsamad Rabiu, the founder of BUA Group, a Nigerian conglomerate with interests in sugar refining, cement production, real estate, steel, port concessions, manufacturing, oil gas and shipping. BUA Group’s annual revenues are estimated at over $2 billion. Abdulsamad got his start in business working for his father, Isyaku Rabiu, a successful businessman from Nigeria’s Northern region. He struck out on his own in 1988, importing rice, sugar, edible oils as well as steel and iron rods.

 

 

NORTHERNERS WHO OWN OIL BLOCS

WORTH BILLIONS OF US DOLLARS

nigeria-oil-blocks 

“AMNI International Petroleum and Development Company is owned by Alhaji (Colonel) Sani Bello of Kotangora, Niger State. They are operators of OML 112 and OML 117.

 

“A former Petroleum minister and former OPEC chairman, Rilwanu Lukman, another northerner, manages AMNI oil blocks and with very key interests in the NNPC/Vitol trading deal.

 

“Oriental Energy Resources Limited, a company owned by Alhaji Indimi, runs three oil blocks: OML 15, the Okwok field and the Ebok field.

 

“Alhaji Aminu Dantata’s Express Petroleum and Gas Limited operates OML 108.

 

“OML 113 allocated to Yinka Folawiyo Petroleum Limited is owned by Alhaji. W.I. Folawiyo.

 

“OPL 291 was awarded to Starcrest Energy Nigeria Limited, owned by Emeka Offor, which was sold by Starcrest to Addax Petroleum. Emeka Offor still has a stake in Addax operations in Nigeria.

 

“Mike Adenuga’s Conoil is the oldest indigenous oil exploration industry in Nigeria with six oil blocks undeniably owned by former military head of state Ibrahim Babangida; imagine that only one Hausa man has six good oil blocs in the land of 10 million Edo Deltans who are suffering and impoverished.

 

“Alhaji Saleh Mohammed Gambo’s North East Petroleum Limited is the holder of the OPL 215 licence. NOREASTER Petroleum was awarded blocks OPL 276 and OPL 283 and closing thereupon a Joint Venture Agreement with Centrica Resources Nigeria Limited and Chinese CCC Oil and Gas.

 

“INTEL is owned by (Abubakar) Atiku, Yar’Adua and Ado Bayero (Emir of Kano family) and has substantial stakes in Nigeria’s oil exploration industry, both in Nigeria and Sao Tome and Principe.

 

“OPL 245 was awarded to Malabu Oil& Gas Company by Sanni Abacha. Dan Etete, Abacha’s oil minister owns Malabu Oil. In 2000, Vice President Atiku Abubakar convinced Obasanjo to revoke OPL 245 given to Malabu Oil. Etete had earlier rejected Atiku’s demand for substantial stakes in the high yield OPL 245 and it attracted the venom of Ota Majesty who revoked the licence. However, in 2006, Obasanjo had mercy on Dan Etete and gave him back his oil block worth over $20 billion dollars.”

 

“These need to be looked into, revoked and re-awarded. The Federal Character which is a principle applicable in every aspect of our national existence should also be brought to bear in the application of our oil blocks, marginal fields and prospecting licences.”

 

Enang’s disclosures came amid a consensus among the lawmakers on the need to let the bill sail through second reading, while further legislative work would take care of the contentious issues.

 

Enang, who spoke in support of the PIB, also argued for the retention of the 10 per cent host community fund, adding that it did not amount to an additional derivation.

EDITOR’S SUMMARY & SUBMISSION

From all indications the northern politicians and  Hausa / Fulani Emirs plus their associate Yoruba monarchs in Ondo & Osun States (where the Itsekhiri oil fields were forcefully taken away from Delta and Edo States indigent oil communities and “bequeathed” to the Yorubas by the north controlled federal government) have now made both these two Yoruba monarchs namely the Oni of Ife and Olugbo of Ugboland the two richest black African traditional rulers by virtue of our oil blocs and wells allocated to them.

All at the great expense of our own monarchs namely the Oba of Benin, Orodje of Okpe and Olu of Warri from whose lands the oil wealth has been and is still being extracted for over 50 years and yet none of them owns a single oil bucket how talk less of oil block. Yet if their hungry and impoverished people try to get a little of it by themselves they are arrested, jailed or killed for oil bunkering which they criminalize as economic sabotage forgetting their by far greater crimes against humanity of plundering and polluting our lands and waters as well as genocidal attacks on our oil communities like Udi in the name of drilling and draining our oil in peace to our own poverty, detriment and destruction.

 ibb nothernelders

Let’s not mention these northerners who are many times richer like the Babangidas, Dantatas, Bayeros, Lukmans, Atikus, Danjumas, Dangotes and Abachas (whose wife said that no matter how much of the Abacha oil-loot is recovered from their family can never be as POOR as Dangote acclaimed to be the richest African with up to $20 billion assets and with good reason because their oil block in Delta state has a very high yield of about 9 billion barrels reserve and at $100 per barrel optimal bench-mark makes their family worth about $900 billion little wonder why they see Dangote with his little $20 billion asset as a very poor man indeed). 

You see why they are very secretive about their astronomical oil wealth that has made the Hausa/Fulani the richest black men in the world as many of them are far richer than the wealthiest black Americans like Oprah Winfrey and Bill Cosby whose assets are just in the region of $2 billion at most and are officially considered as the richest blacks in the world more or less. Because they know that if we Niger Deltans know their secret source of wealth we will surely stir up the proverbial “hornets nest” against them as  the Akwa Ibom Senator did in the senate when the same northerners vehemently opposed the passing of the PIB because it will make a provision of 10% profit of all oil companies payable to all oil producing communities translating into the largest indigenously owned OIL BLOC WORTH BILLIONS OF DOLLARS ANNUALLY.

I just thank God for the life of the Niger Deltan Senator Ita Enang from Akwa Ibong State who truly represented us well in this matter by exposing the truth about this secret they have been hiding from us for over 20 years and also for the life of the Niger Deltan President Jonathan who adamantly refused to renew these exploitative IOC’s oil lease for Shell, Chevron, Total and Agip for the last six years until the PIB is passed into law that will surely favor our oil communities and people once we have direct access to those funds for our wealth empowerment and community development projects. 

Since these oil bloc leasers have opted to contest our 10% oil “ownership” in the National Assembly so also we too will contest their oil bloc “leaser-ship’ in the International Courts which surely has jurisdiction in crude oil related matters as it is the most valuable international product in the world.

 

WE GO KNOW WHO BE THE OGA FOR HOUSE…

WHETHER NA THE TENANT OR THE LANDLORD!    

 This reminds of Yakubu Gowan who said when he was the head of state that Nigeria had so much money and did not know what to do with it; likewise his fellow northerner Theophilus Danjuma who made $500 million in just one day from his oil bloc deal that he did not know what to do with the money. Indeed the tyrant usurper of the throne will not know what to do with it but not the rightful heir who knows what to do with the thone of his ancestors will is to properly rule over his people.

Yakubu Gowan and Theophilus Danjuma

No problem Mr Gowan, Danjuma & co. by the time we take our oil wealth back by legal force from your usurping northern hands we KNOW exactly what to do with all the billions of dollars we will make in one sweet day:

BY:-

1) Cleaning up all our oil polluted farming lands and fishing waters

2) Installing free solar powered water boreholes in every community and village in our land

3) Generating cheap, constant and guaranteed electricity with gas turbines to power all our communities all year round

4) Constructing world class standard roads, bridges and railways to connect all our cities with our rural communities in the creeks with cheap & free community buses to match.

5) Providing free education at all levels for all our students from nursery to university

6) Facilitating free and affordable health care plus social welfare schemes for our sick people and old pensioners respectively

7) Industrializing and developing our communities and cities into world class standards like Dubai a certain similarly oil rich state within a decade

..OH WE DO KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH OUR PETROL DOLLARS

JUST YOU WAIT TILL WE GET OUR FINGERS ON ‘EM…

We are very confidant we will surely obtain justice and victory in this legal battle in the International Human Rights courts for our heritage, future and destiny.

BY THE SPECIAL GRACE OF GOD…AMEN!
