This contained in a statement issued by MEND's spokesman, Jomo Gbomo and made available to newsmen in Warri, Delta, on Sunday.

The stakeholders’ meeting was convened by elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark.

Gbomo said that the communiqué failed to categorically condemn the ``criminal and treasonable activities of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA)’’.

``This is principally because notable promoter of the meeting was named by the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA) as a major supporters of the NDA.

He said that Clark lacked the moral authority to lead a discussion on the so-called ``restructuring’’ of the Nigerian Federation at this critical point in the country's history.

``Consequently, MEND reiterates its full support for the ongoing military presence in the Niger Delta region,’’ Gbomo said.

``MEND shall continue to insist that; so long as these elders and stakeholders do not categorically and publicly denounce the NDA, the Federal Government should also continue to ignore them,’’ he said finally.

The former militant group also said it was prepare to tour the region in order to solicit support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in an exercise code-named ``Operation Moses’’.
