 A vocal member of the Northern Elders Forum, Usman Bugaje, has debunked the claim of Oil-Producing States in Nigeria.
He faulted the claim oil producing states and went further to say that the oil in Nigeria according to the UN law, it is only the north that could rightly lay claims to Nigeria by virtue of its 72% land mass which belongs to the north.
No state, he said has the right to lay sole claims to the natural resources in the country and oil, he added, belongs to the Nigerian state and not the Niger Delta states.
His words:  “There is no oil producing state. The only oil producing state is the Nigeria state itself.
“Because the investments come from the Nigerian state; the territory belongs to the Nigerians state.
“It the measure of land mass that you have that will give you the mileage to the sea.”
Educating the people further he reminded remarked that the landmass of a nation that determines how much of the ocean it would owe, noting that the North has made Nigeria to owe the oil producing areas because of its landmass. 

“In the landmass of this country, as we know, that gives us that lounged of 200 miles and more into the ocean is because of that 72% land mass of this country which is the north.
“So what they claim is the offshore oil is actually for the north. If anybody should own it, is the north.
“So we should stop using these terms that make no sense at all. There are no oil producing states. It is only the Nigerian state that produces oil.”
