The Ijaw Youths Congress Worldwide has accused some Niger Delta politicians of soiling the name of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The group said those trying to bring down Jonathan, are prominent figures in the Buhari administration.

The Ijaw youths also alleged that the same set of politicians do not want a peaceful resolution of the crisis in the Niger Delta.

Speaking further, the group’s spokesman, Eric Omare said “The desperation came to the pinnacle with the media report that intelligence report indicated that Jonathan was one of the persons behind the formation of the NDA.

“The characters behind this desperate plan are politicians of Niger Delta extraction who are in the current government and do not want a peaceful resolution of the renewed militancy in the region.

“They prefer a military option that would result in the killing of innocent Niger Deltans. These frivolous accusations against former President Jonathan started after he visited President Buhari few weeks ago.

“Secondly, they don’t also want Jonathan’s intervention to resolve the crisis for obvious political reasons. So, this is the reason why they have orchestrated all sorts of lies to drag Jonathan into the formation of NDA. It is deliberate and we are sure the top hierarchy of government knows this fact.”

Meanwhile, the Niger Delta Avengers have threatened to release video of military men involved in oil bunkering.
