He was many parts and different things to different people – a university students leader, a teacher, policeman and Nigerian army officer. An undergraduate student of chemistry and student union president at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, he left school to lead an armed protest against the exploitation of oil and gas resources in the Niger Delta areas which benefited mainly the federal government of Nigeria and Eastern region with capital in Enugu and nothing was given to the Niger Delta people.

He believed that the people of the area deserved a larger share of proceeds of the oil wealth. He formed the Niger Delta Volunteer Force, an armed militia with members consisting mainly of his fellow Ijaw ethnic group. They declared the Niger Delta Republic on February 23, 1966 and fought with federal forces for twelve days before being defeated.

Boro and his comrades were jailed for treason. However, the federal regime of General Yakubu Gowon granted him amnesty on the eve of the Nigerian civil war in May 1967. He then enlisted and was commissioned as a major in the Nigerian Army.

And fought on the side of the Federal Government but was killed under mysterious circumstances in active service in 1968 at Ogu (Okrika) in Rivers state.

NIGER DELTA UNIVERSITY (NDU) EMERGES 2ND PLACE IN THE PROF. MANFRED LACH SPACE MOOT COURT COMPETITION IN SOUTH AFRICA

By Voice of NDU

The Bayelsa State owned Niger Delta University, Faculty of Law in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria has emerged with the 2nd position in the Prof. Manfred Lach Space Moot Court Competition in Pretoria, South Africa.

The Competition which is organized annually is aimed at fostering knowledge on Space Law amongst young advocates in the World.

The Niger Delta University defeated the University of Ibadan, and the University of South Africa before going to the finals where they contested against the University of Calabar which means that two universities in the Niger Delta Region made it to the finals in the International competition.

Although the Niger Delta University may have not won the competition, it is worthy of note that the students of the faculty of law have been able to set the record straight that we have all it takes to conquer the world. Recall that the Niger Delta University had earlier won the Justice Walter Onnoghen National Moot Court Competition in the University of Calabar.

Based on the development in South Africa, the University of Calabar will therefore be representing Africa in Washington D.C. at the world stage before judges of the International Court of Justice.

Congratulations to our advocates. Chris Alagoa , Ovie, and Owei for making us proud. A big thumbs up to the team leader, Mrs. Gina Igbinovia Elvis-ImoGina Igbinovia Elvis-ImoGina Igbinovia Elvis-Imo and our able Dean of the faculty, Prof. Solomon T. EbobrahSolomon T. Ebobrah
The Government of Bayelsa State should honour these youngsters for making the State proud.

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, The Worst Performing Governor in Educational Development in Nigeria, NANS Blast Out

It has become imperative for the leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) to examine and analyse critically certain political leaders whose actions in recent times have made life unbearable for the citizens under their watch.

It is no longer news that the government of Ondo State under Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, a supposed Senior Advocate of Nigeria is today championing an agenda that takes education out of the reach of the poor.

Without any dubiety, before his emergence as the Executive Governor of Ondo State, education since 1999 under Governor Adebayo Adefarati through Olusegun Agagu and Olusegun Mimiko was free from primary to secondary level.

However, a governor who claimed to have fought alongside others during his days at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife against the reversal of the great benefit of the Awolowo education policy is today making education, an exclusive right of the rich, thereby creating class differentials amongst the people he governed over.

Education in Ondo State is now fully commercialised.
Secondary school Students who hitherto enjoyed payment of WAEC/NECO fees under the past admistrations now have additional burdens placed on their parents by the insensitive Akeredolu anti-education government that have scraped the payment of WAEC/NECO fees for SS3 students. This deliberate policy by past democratic administrations have now been abolished and the hopes of many families dashed.

Let it be known to the entire public that undergraduates of state owned Tertiary Institutions in Ondo State are daily dropping out of school due to increase in their various school fees which their parents certainly cannot afford.

How can we explain that a supposed progressive government, increased arbitrarily, fees of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko from 33,000 to 150,000? Students of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo has their fees increased from 63,000 to 108, 000 while those in Ondo State University of Science and Technology has their fees inceased to 200, 000 from 70, 000.

Lest we say that the Akeredolu government did not only defraud students at the School of Nursing but breached their trust by deceiving them into paying higher fees in exchange for Nursing degrees awarded by the University of Medical Sciences established by the immediate past administration of Olusegun Mimiko. We know as a matter of fact, that since the increment, the students from the school of nursing have been made to understand that their certificate will remain the same despite the agreement reached with the government to award them degree certificate from the University of Medical Sciences haven paid the new tuition fees forced on them for that purpose.

Today, Governor Akeredolu is globally junketing with tax payers money in order to create awareness for legalisation of hard drugs and narcotic use. What a confused Chief executive! For once, we should be worried that it takes someone who purchases, uses and is addicted to hard drugs to know it’s economic prospects without caring about lives and its negative impact on the society.

For a governor who has refused to make education a top priority to now lead an advocacy for legalisation of banned drugs that distorts thoughts and stability reveals his level of denigration of governance.

Isn’t it a pity that in a state where education is more or less an industry and a pride, Governor Akeredolu has proven that he is on seat to retard the progress of the youths by encouraging the plantation of cannabis(Indian Hemp) against the pursuit of knowledge? This obviously is the height of his incompetence and insensitivity to the needs of the youths.

We condemn in totality the managements of the state owned institutions who joined the governor in this inglorious journey, for example, the Vice-Chancelor of Adekunle Ajasin University who implemented a policy of no school fees, no test about two weeks ago which was vehemently resisted by the students that lead to the closure of the Institution. To this end, NANS will resist any form of intimidation, oppression or threat to the life of any of our member who are resolute in pursuing their rights and privileges.

We also use this medium to call on UNESCO, other national and international agencies including progressive minded and well meaning individuals to prevail on Governor Akeredolu who have threatened kill and maim our members who will come out and protest against his obnoxious education policies cum commercialization of education in Ondo State.

Let it be known that NANS is relentless in her pursuit of total reversal of all fees increased by the cannabis indulging governor of Ondo State.

We refuse to buy into this life threatening advocacy of addiction and retardation through promotion of hard drugs. We demand that Governor Akeredolu subject himself to a clinical drug test to determine his mental state.

While appreciating the support and endurance of Ondo Students in peacefully demanding for reversal of the obnoxious and satanic increment in their fees, we wish to as a matter of honour, in respect of on-going final rites for the revered Olowo of Owo kingdom who passed on, put on hold our proposed mass protest against the increments until immediately after the traditional rights scheduled for this week. This unjust education policy will surely be challenged and we shall do so upon the completion of late Olowo’s passage rights.

We challenge Governor Akeredolu to a public debate with NANS where he can lay bare his educational policies for Ondo people. We are constantly embarrassed by his seeming threat to wipe off Ondo students for daring to speak out against his anti- educational policy. We view his threat as a test of our resolve to once again lay an irrefutable claim to our heroic struggle for the enthronement of the democratic rule he’s today diminishing without his active participation. We would have reported him to his professional colleagues who side by side fought with us and defended many of our victimized leaders under the military but understanding that he’s now a suspended member of the highest bar gathering in Nigeria. Another option would have been to report him to his political party, the All Progressive Congress, under whose platform he governs the state but we are also reliably informed that he has been suspended for various offenses, therefore we are left with no other option than to face the unrepentant oppressor of the students.

Signed:

Comr. Danielson Bamidele Akpan, GCNS.
President.

JUST IN!!! Chevron Marginalization: General Creeks Mandate Declares Seize Fire Over Operation Shutdown Chevron Facilities Earlier Announced

Says They Might Strike Without Prior Public Notice If The Issues Raised Before Chevron Are Not Addressed In Time

The Sequel to the earlier declaration of Operation Zero Chevron operations in Egbema kingdom, Warri North Local Government Area of Delta state, by the group known as General Creeks Mandate (GCM),has suspended the 14days ultimatum issued to American muti-national company,Chevron Nigerian Limited to address some germane issues raised in a Press Statement, which will elapse in few days time.

The group in a fresh Press Statement released yesterday and signed by its Spokesman, Gen.John Famukuromo said, the seize fire is based on intervention, several calls, messages and dialogue from eminent concerned leaders of Ijaw Nation whom we hold in high esteem appealing for more time to amicably address the burning issues we have put forward.

We hereby step down our initial operation zero Chevron operations as earlier declared, as we have equally called on all our striking team to hold fire, while we give our purported leaders another benefit of doubt to address the Chevron madness in Egbema kingdom.

Gen.Famukoromo stressed that,It is a well-known fact that all the muti-national companies does not engage in inimical practices in their countries,but find Nigeria to be a fertile ground for their slavery,apartheid and unjust system,where people whose land produces the black gold are treated with high level of disdain.

According to the group said: ” We may strike without prior public notice,if the issues raised are not address in a reasonable time.We are not sleeping over our demands, all mediators and concern Ijaw leaders should take note. Our review of action should not be taken for laziness.All hands must be on desk to ensure crisis does not broke out between Egbema kingdom and Chevron multi-national oil firm.

We must at this junction condemn Egbema- Gbaramatu Communities Development Foundation [EGCDF] executives for their lay back, millipede, unfocused and lackadaisical representation of Egbema kingdom. We passed vote of no confidence on them because their way of handling crucial issues is born out of selfish inertest.

How can we claim to have a body like EGCDF, yet Chevron take our people for granted at all fronts?. To all the concern leaders of Ijaw Nation who persuaded us into dropping our total war against Chevron,must match their words with action as regards our demands within a reasonable time to avoid bad blood flowing, the statement adds. “
