Jonathan, Clark Begged us Not to Declare Niger Delta Republic – Militants





One of the numerous Niger Delta militant groups, Adaka Boro Avengers, has said it cancelled its planned declaration of a Niger Delta Republic today (August 1) after appeals from Ijaw leaders, including ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, E. K. Clark, among others, PUNCH reports.

The group reiterated its mission to cripple the nation’s economy until the federal government shows readiness to dialogue and restructure Nigeria.

They also called on FG to “stop wasting their time with those greedy fellows that call themselves Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND)“.

Their statement read in part:

We adhere to the voice of our people, because our struggle is for the Niger Delta people and not for selfish reason. But this is not the end. More has yet to come. Our mission to cripple the economy of the Nigerian nation will not stop until the Nigerian government is ready to sit on a roundtable to dialogue and to restructure Nigeria.

We received calls from prominent leaders like Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, E. K. Clark, Ankio Briggs, and especially King Alfred Diete Spiff calling on the freedom fighters to abort their mission to declare Niger Delta Republic.

Unless that, we will not stop until Nigeria becomes a zero economy. We are also saying this for the benefit of President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerian government to stop wasting their time with those greedy fellows that call themselves MEND because nothing good will come out of them rather than sabotage.

Everything they are saying, not even one will be accomplished. We will never agree with anything they say and henceforth MEND should watch their backs because we have tolerated them for a very long time.

Enough is enough, since they want to set confusion in the Niger Delta we will start from them.

      And the world is watching and listening to treats like yours.
      This is not 1966. There’s social media now.
      Dialogue is the way forward.
      May God bless Nigeria!

      Err how many times did you speak against your lords herdsmen destroying lives?

      Sell your granite, herds, gold, coal or whatever and leave Niger Delta you do not have respect for. Mouth like level Niger Delta. In this century????? So all Nigerians including you feed from ND? Shame on clueless people. I tot you said you don’t don’t need oil again? Mtcheeeew

      Denying wat is obvious? I guess all southerners r blind abi? Inactions against the murderous fulani herdsmen but quick to rise against the ND militants. Buhari is the MOST DIVISIVE President in the history of Nig. Tnk God Buhari is ruling, now we know he is THE WORST PRESIDENT WE SHOULDNT HAVE HAD.

      Are you just finding out? The 2015 election campaigns were the most tribalistic and Buhari worshipper tried to blame it on GEJ but now we know better. This same Buhari didn’t even put in a word on behalf of his people with Boko haram.

      It is well

  5. @nnene..what social media?

    August 2, 2016 at 2:24 am

    Don’t be fooled by the social media ranting,the powers that be don’t take them serious,don’t encourage this jokers to commit treason that will lead to Mass slaughter.
    Nigerians fool themselves with the way the world works,there are two ways to the way the western powers works,anything that will affect the price of oil,and by extension there economy they are in full support of total clamp down.

    What is nnenne saying?am sure you don’t know much about the civil war.what was available then is hundred times better than what the social media will give them today.
    The world was just. coming out of the shock of the Second World War,so there was great intrest,generated partly by the propaganda machine of the time,showing kwashiorkor and malnourished children,but now there are about five wars alone today,nobody will pay any attention if they decide to commit suicide.

    hahaha…………….. these guys are jokers!!! they want restructuring, like its gonna change anything!! guys lets be honest, if the coming together of all the people of Nigeria cant provide clean drinkable water or electricity? what makes any tribe or region think it can do it alone.? All we know so far so good, are things given by d white man. From the Time stamp we observe (London GMT) to our citizenship, technology, religion, Medicine(modern day one) etc

    What will the Niger Delta region look like in the next 10-15 yrs if left in the hands of these jokers? I dey laugh for swahili!!!

      Actually Ojukwu went to see Ken Saro Wiwa before his execution and told him”Good morning” meaning, this is just the beginning since they refused to join the struggle at the time.

    Please let’s split this country, and let everyone answer his father’s name. I’m not SS or SE, but its obvious we are all strange bed-fellows. This so-called oil, asides from the thieving elites, how many of us from other parts of the country even benefit from it?

    I may come across as tribalistic but I’ll say this.

    The problem we face now is hatred for the Igbos, if not, why would a Buffon like GMB be our president. Yorubas could not imagine the Igbos deciding who the next president will be. Trust their non traveling selves not to know that Ijaw is not Igbo.

    These same Niger deltans sabotaged the civil war and today they are fighting.

    Same way Yorubas are regretting GMB. In all these, Igbos are winning, building buisnesses and all. Hate and Jealousy kill their owner

    I don’t blame you its yaradua I blame. Declaring amnesty for militants when every form of mutiny should be expunged decisively. It’s that same attitude that made boko haram grow I think . And as for those who want this country to split think twice. It was when I served in cross River I realised if this county splits, it will just continue splitting into tinier bits,the hatred between communities even within the same state, talk less of akwa ibom and cross-over rivalry. What about the same classism going on between Ibadan andogbomohoso folks,if they had their way, they won’t a be in the same oyo state or the fact that northerners have states they call bastard hausa or bastard northerners, see the problem of Nigeria is leadership at very level, including state governors, local government chairmen and councillors, I still maintain that most of these fractions are politically driven, none of them have the interest of their people at heart. That’s how we thought boko haram was pro Islam until they got confused and no one knew their agenda again. *sigh*plenty to write,plenty to say but I maintain that mutiny isn’t the way forward!!
