Most of the oil reserves are in the south-east nigeria not in the north. One reason the central government couldn,t allow the eastrn region to secede fron the union, during the late 1960’s civil war.

I note two errors in your article that are misleading. The first being where you state that “mainly Muslim north, where oil reserves are located” and where you state that the coup of 1966 was led by Aguyi Ironsi. Please crosscheck these statements as I believe the oil reserves are in the South of the country and Aguyi Ironsi did not leed any coup.
Thanks Mike Egbuna

Thanks for your Publication. It is absolutely correct to say that OIL RESERVES are in the north, But the oil reserves are in the North because the domination of the northern(MUSLIM) ruler-ship made such shifts, by running Pipelines from the South ( where the OIL wells and Refineries are located) and hoarding the oil in the North,,,Specifically Kaduna; which has some of the largest Refineries. The North is predominantly Desert and if there is any oil there it is definitely not being utilized; simply because it is cheaper to drill is the Marine Habitats, which common sense should prompt the Editors of our publication that the south is Marine & Riverine and thus produce ALL the oil that Nigeria as a Country enjoys. Two noteworthy cities that produce the most oil are WARRI & PORT HARCOURT. Please confirm with these feedback and correct the information you disseminate. Thanks.
