  1. Thank God for this development.wike our governor please pay us in rivers state o, watin we do u na,for 5months now we never get any cash.u want make we die? Crying

  2. With those huge allocations to South-South states, why are those criminals called the NDA still bombing Nigeria’s oil installations? They and their leaders need their heads examined. The Nigerian state owes them NOTHING. The military should do the needful and shut down these vermins.

    • what a load of crap … the Nigernain state owes the south-south a lot : the NDA is just a result of the marginalization of the south-south … if the Nigerian government owes the south-south nothing they can as well take their hands of the oil zones …
