The group reacted to Trump’s victory via a statement released by spokesperson, Brigadier General Mudoch Agbinibo.
The statement reads:
“Your hard fought victory against world establishments is hope for us, the over 30 million oppressed minorities of the Niger – Delta that have being continuously raped and economically colonized because of our God-given resources, over the last six decades, by the Nigerian state and Islamic fundamentalists in power.”
“Mr. President elect of the United States of America sir, we are hoping for a new perfect economic order and relations as it concerns the United States’ critical assets and interest in the Niger Delta.
“Lead the world to a real change not the President Barack Obama change that manipulated a clueless puppet in General Muhammadu Buhari on the people of Nigeria.”
Meanwhile, Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has said that a Trump presidency will save Nigeria from hopelessness.
Trump shocked the world on Wednesday, November 9, when he emerged winner of the presidential elections defeating former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
