This article was titled “F**k Italy!” but for whatever reasoning maybe wonderful colonialist conditioning it has the title above. Nonetheless this is a knowledge post, we came across this article and wanted to enhance your mind!:
Gas flares are everywhere in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. But few are dramatic as the Oshie flare, owned by the Italian oil company Agip. The Oshie flare is almost on top of a village of 1,700 families, the traditional farmers and fishers of Akaraolu. The villagers were promised jobs and money when Agip first erected the flare in 1972. But none of it materialized, leaving Akaraolu with foundering fishing and agriculture and health problems as a result of the 200-hundred-foot high roaring column of flame in their midst.
Dagogo Joel’s arm was burned by the Oshie gas flare when he was a child. The flare–lit since early 70s and adjacent to Joel’s home village of Akaraolu — occasionally spews out flaming liquids on the countryside, and burned Joel’s arm while he was fishing with his father.
SO WHO THE HELL HAS A PLAN? ARE THERE ANY OIL DRILLING OR ENGINEERING SCHOOLS IN THE NIGER DELTA? OR IN NIGERIA PERIOD?
WHY THE F*CK IS ITALY STEALING OUR DAMN NATURAL RESOURCES SO EASILY?
