Osita Okechukwu also asked the militants to blame former President Goodluck Jonathan for the underdevelopment in the Niger Delta region.
Premium Times reports that the caucus said “Accordingly, we plead with our brothers, the Niger Delta Avengers 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.”
The group’s spokesman, Osita Okechukwu also asked the militants to blame former President Goodluck Jonathan for the underdevelopment in the Niger Delta region.
Okechukwu said “May we honestly ask the Niger Delta Avengers, where they were, when our dear former president, His Excellency, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, from 6 May, 2010 to 29 May, 2015 presided over Nigeria?
“Were the Niger Delta Avengers in deep slumber when Jonathan, for good five years failed to Clean-Up the Niger Delta, failed to complete East-West road, failed to review Oil Blocks, failed to Amend the Constitution to their taste, and failed to build the three Greenfield Refineries which he awarded?”
The APC caucus also said President Buhari has outlined various developmental projects for the Niger Delta people, adding that the bombing of oil facilities will further endanger the region.
The caucus added that “In actual fact, if there is anything to avenge, or anybody to blame, the barb should be directed at ex-president Jonathan and cohorts who criminally neglected the Niger Delta and by extension Nigeria via unconscionable planlessness and squander-mania.”
Meanwhile, the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh (Rtd.) has sent a team of investigators to fish out those behind the recent bombings in the Niger-Delta region.
