ISOKO NATION

The Isoko nation has been support the Nigeria project with crude oil even before independence. What do they have to show for it? Environmental degradation, poverty ridden people, poluted land and air, neglect by the state and federal government. Even with the 13% derivation paid to Delta state, you can see what the state governor and his goverment has done the the people that lay the golden egg. Since the Nigeria project can not cater for these people, I support them to declare their on republic immediately and quit the failed Nigeria project. These are people neglected and impoverished by the federal and state government. Since the government has neglected them for about a century now, is time for them to part ways with the failed Nigeria project. Is only when they need the vote of the Isoko people, you see them begging for support.
