The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (Mend) has again declared war on Nigeria’s oil sector. The group claims that the federal government had done nothing, during the three months cease-fire period to resolve the issues in the oil-rich region. But is the resumption of hostilities motivated by greed or grievance? Could Nigeria root out the quagmire without involving the greedy political sponsors of the rebel groups? According to analysts, a win-win situation as announced by Pesident Yar’Adua, would translate into a win situation for the Niger Delta only if the vicious cycle is addressed.
