… as BDFCG denounces exploitation of ordinary citizens
The Nigerian ruling class and privileged business elites have been accused of orchestrating a nefarious scheme to perpetuate the subjugation of ordinary citizens as their economic slaves.
Pro-Biafran group, Biafra Defacto Customary Government, BDFCG, which made the accusation, also alleged that Alhaji Aliko Dangote, colluding with corrupt politicians, has clandestinely seized control of economic institutions and solidified his position as a market monopolist.
BDFCG said the unholy alliance manipulates market dynamics, thereby dictating prices and production quantities to the detriment of the populace.
In a statement issued by BDFCG Spokesperson, Prosper Odinga, the group noted that the recent assertion by NNPCL’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Mele Kyari, regarding the operationalization of a refinery, adds another layer to this scheme.
It advocate a breakaway from historical patterns of deprivation and assertion of control over (our/Biafran) resources, thereby ensuring that the benefits of the so-called national wealth, exemplified by crude oil, are equitably distributed across society.
The statement reads in full:
BDFCG Exposes Nexus Between Nigerian Ruling Class and Dangote’s Economic Monopoly, Denounces Exploitation of Ordinary Citizens
The Nigerian ruling class, in tandem with privileged business elites, has orchestrated a nefarious scheme to perpetuate the subjugation of ordinary citizens as their economic slaves. Alhaji Aliko Dangote, colluding with corrupt politicians, has clandestinely seized control of economic institutions, solidifying his position as a market monopolist. This unholy alliance manipulates market dynamics, dictating prices and production quantities to the detriment of the populace.
The recent assertion by NNPCL’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Mele Kyari, regarding the operationalization of a refinery, adds another layer to this scheme. His claim, made on Arise television on Thursday, June 1, 2023, that petrol prices would remain unaffected despite domestic production, is not only regrettable but also grossly misleading. This fallacious statement is to send the wrong narrative for a sustained and wicked exploitation of the oppressed.
What is particularly egregious is the blatant insensitivity and avarice exhibited by these elites, who seem determined to perpetuate poverty among Biafrans. Their intention to sell crude oil to local refineries at international prices, rather than at locally agreed rates, exacerbates economic disparity and reinforces a system of oppression.
The looming monopolistic control of the petroleum industry poses a grave threat, turning our resource, meant to be a blessing, into a tool of suffering for us. This, combined with the complicity of the federal government, paints a dire picture of the struggle faced by the Biafran people. It is imperative to expose and resist this manipulation, advocating for transparency, fairness, and equitable distribution of the so-called nation’s resources for the benefit of all citizens.
The aspirations of Biafrans for political and economic freedom within Nigeria are threatened by the actions of these capitalist elements masquerading as democrats.
The BDFCG advocates for affordable fuel, setting a maximum price of N70 per litre, and reasonably priced kerosene capped at N60 per litre. Biafrans refined their crude products during the war and refining them in the 21st century is not rocket science! Why are these political and economic buccaneers making simple things look complex? Biafraland is blessed with milk and honey with enough human and material resources to build a modern and prosperous society.
The call for accessible fuel and kerosene at fair prices is intricately linked to the larger demand for political and economic autonomy. The exorbitant prices currently faced by Biafrans for petrol and petroleum products exemplify the need for urgent and meaningful changes that empower the region, fostering political and economic freedom.
The Biafra De Facto Customary Government (BDFCG) advocates for increased control over Biafra’s natural resources through regional autonomy, emphasizing the right to manage and benefit from these resources.The recent assertion by NNPCL’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Mele Kyari, regarding the operationalization of a refinery, adds another layer to this scheme.
