Emeritus Professor of History, Ebiegberi Joe Alagoa has become the first signatory to the Niger Delta Charter on resource control and self-determination.
The Niger Delta Congress (NDC) made the announcement in an update made available to DAILY POST on Friday.
“The charter, among others, states the conditions to be met by Nigeria for the continued participation of the region’s nationalities in the Nigerian project”, it read.
88-year-old Alagoa signed the charter on Thursday at his country home in Nembe, Bayelsa State.
The senior citizen was an archivist at the National Archives from 1959 to 1962 and a lecturer in African History at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), 1965 – 1967.
In 1967, Alagoa became a senior research fellow at the Institute of African Studies, University of Ibadan (UI).
The charter was adopted as a working document after the October 8 conference at the Ijaw House Complex in Yenegoa.
The NDC is demanding that oil and other natural resources of the South-South be controlled by the people.
Currently, the region gets only a 13 percent Derivation Fund from the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC).
Nigerians have been condemning the treatment of the communities producing the oil that funds the lion’s share of the country’s expenditure.
The locals live in poverty due to decades of government neglect and serious environmental degradation by oil majors.
The NDC, a coalition of groups and ethnic nationalities, says the charter will lay the foundation for the processes that will birth “a new future”.
