Do you believe humans are made of clay? I, a researcher, after a long research, have come to the conclusion that human beings are made of soil. Not only human beings but also animals and soil are made. Examples such as the type (your home car gets all your belongings, etc.) are carrying all the material that these things are made of. In the same way, the material that man is made of, man is carrying in his body. People made with 100% material. 99% of the material is found somewhere in the world. 1% It is not found anywhere in the world. This is the human soul. 99% of the elements that are found in human beings are those that are present in your body (water, gas, salt, oil, iron, etc.). These are found somewhere in the world. In other words, the human body is carrying the elements of the soil that is made of man. This proves that man is made of clay. God has created many creatures. Man is the best of them all. Allah says in the heavenly book that man is made of dust. Scientific evidence is that humans are made of clay. That is why the people of the soil are mixing with the soil on the last day. I briefly described. God bless you all .

Can they tell us why the refineries in the Niger Delta are not working? Nonesense people. Why won't they steal when you're just there to extract wealth from their land and export the jobs to Western countries. Nigerian leaders since 1960 till date don't care about the wellfare of the ND region because most of them are not from there. They don't mind making Nigeria a Banana Republic. They just need the fu*king dollars.

WHAT AN ENVIROMENTAL DEVASTATION! BESIDES THE PEOPLES LAND HAS BEEN DESTROYED BY WESTERN OIL COMPANIES, SO THEY HAVE NO MEANS OF LIVELIHOD.

The oil fields are located in Nigeria's Christian south, yet virtually ALL the military operatives and spokesmen patrolling the area are from the country's Islamic north. This lopsided tribal makeup of the military presence in the oil fields, as illustrated by this video clip, is a large part of the reason those oil fields have never known peace ever since petroleum was discovered there in the 1950s.

The indigenous people whose ancestral land generates 99% of Nigeria's export earnings have been systematically excluded from participating in the monetization of that crude oil. They are not hired by the oil companies, even as the pollution from that oil extraction irreparably decimates their fishing resources and agricultural land. Rendered jobless and hungry, the Niger Delta tribes people resort to stealing crude oil to refine in their makeshift distilleries, which are then destroyed by soldiers of northern Nigerian Islamic extraction.

Peace & Stability in Nigeria very important for Niger, Chad, Cameroon, Benin. because Nigeria have border with 4 countries.

L F August 1, 2022 - 9:40 PM

Just use your frickin resources to help your people you idiots! You're too STUPID to even be embarrassed as you should, seeing your people on rafts in the Mediterranean, being killed by Italians once they hit Italian cities, being treated like dogs all over Europe just for being black!!!! You STEAL their money buying big cars and villas like cartoonish buffoons. Nigerian leaders and "elites" are an ignorant, greedy lot, disgracing themselves, their people and black people EVERYWHERE!!!. No one respects you because you don't respect your own people.

The Greek August 1, 2022 - 10:03 PM

I support the thieves. Otherwise, all that money will go to the pockets of the politicians. That's the only way the ordinary person will get to benefit from that oil
