Abeg, wetin be the difference between these Niger Delta leaders that are asking for oil blocs in spite of the level of development in the Niger Delta and the Northern political elites that have oil blocs considering the level of poverty, education and standard of living in the North?

Everywhere you turn you see greedy politicians that don't give a damn about the masses as long as their bank accounts are doing well.

The youths must look for a way to dislodge these old politicians otherwise they will continue to walk around with their CVs looking for jobs or work for the same politicians as touts, thugs, assassins etc.
