Give Buhari Time to Address Your Demands – South-East APC tells Niger Delta Avengers



Buhari-at-VillaThe South-East caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday urged the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to sheath its sword and give President Muhammadu Buhari time to address their demands.

This is contained in a statement released to newsmen in Abuja by the spokesman of the party in the South-East, Osita Okechukwu.

The APC group told the NDA to be mindful of the laudable projects the current administration had lined up for the Niger Delta and allow the president some time to execute them.

The group, however, said that if the avengers had grouse with the situation, they should direct attention of former President Goodluck Jonathan, who failed to take certain actions to address the problems in the area.

They said that for five years, Jonathan failed to clean-up the Niger Delta, failed to complete East-West road and failed to review oil blocks’ allocation

The statement said that the former president also failed to amend the Constitution to the Avengers’ taste and failed to build the three Greenfield Refineries which he awarded.

“Accordingly, we plead with our brothers, the NDA, for God’s sake, to do a deep re-think and graciously allow peace to reign for our collective national interest and indeed, to save the Niger Delta from ruins. No sane Nigerian will pray for the recurrence of ugly incidents like the Odi, 1999; Zaki Ibiam, 2000 and Gbaramatu, 2009, or the unwarranted ugly scenario which the Niger Delta Avengers are consciously simulating.

It is our candid view that the bombing of Forcados pipeline, Bonga oil field, Chevron trunk lines and other oil and gas installations will not facilitate the implementation of 2014 National Conference Report,” the statement read.

It added that bombing the facilities would not enhance funding of the Amnesty Programme or make for the clean-up of the Niger Delta.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    APC SE and SS are the greatest nincompoop!
    So reminding them of ODI , Gbaramatu etc is the solution?
    Odi and Gbaramatu can not happen in modern Nigeria.

    It isnt a case where soldiers bury 317 in shallow grave and every where is quiet.

    Was Ken Saro Wiwa not mudered in cold blood by your boss’s boss named saint Abacaha. Did you wipe this story off the memory -or you think no one else remember?
    It isnt a case where soldiers bury 317 in shallow grave and every where is quiet.

    The 2014 Conference did you believe in it? Did you weakling not not turn dumb when your party leaders criticized and threw it tru the window?
    Was it was not Amaechi who contributed to major of the agitation? Closure of Maritime University?

    Keep getting scared of buhari you foolish lots.

    Solution is refer to Pat Utomi a strong member of yours and tell Buhari to his face that Tompolo and Boyloaf etc listened to Yaradua because he was genuine leader, a lover of peace and a preserver of Nigeria entity.

    Tell your divider of the nation, the medieval and non inclusive leader to include all and watch how Nigeria will heal.

    As long as he keep spitting fire on others fold hands on his the country will be at war.

    So take your message cowardice message to your leader.
