Brown’s African misadventure

PM’s offer of military aid to Nigeria provokes collapse of ceasefire amid angry claims that UK has ‘declared war’ on rebel army

Gordon Brown is being accused of preparing for a military adventure in Africa after he pledged to provide backing to the Nigerian security forces. His announcement prompted the collapse of a ceasefire in the oil-rich Niger Delta and helped to drive up crude oil prices on world markets. …

President Yar’Adua came to power a year ago after a controversial election win that was challenged in Nigeria’s High Court and contested by independent observers. Despite campaign pledges to tackle endemic corruption, which has raised the country to the top of the global graft index and enriched an elite with illegal oil revenues, the President has made little progress. He has also failed in his pledge to address local grievances in the Delta and restore peace to the region. …

Britain is one of the largest investors in Nigeria. About 4,000 Britons live in the west African country, many working for large companies, including the oil and gas companies Royal Dutch Shell and BG Group.

Instead of having bloody military adventures in Nigeria again, Gordon Brown should rather apologize for earlier ‘blood for Big Oil’ disasters in Nigeria with British involvement, like rigging elections, killing Ken Saro-Wiwa and many others, etc.
