The forum reached the conclusion during an emergency meeting in Warri, Delta State on Tuesday, October 4, and its comments are contained in a statement released to the media by spokesman, Chief Comewell Derioteidou.
The statement reads:
“Our people will not fold our arms and watch the good name of Jonathan destroyed by politicians. We have heard all sorts of amounts being bandied in the media against Jonathan’s wife and wonder why Abacha’s wife, YarAdua’s wife and the others who have universities in their name are not being subjected to the same scrutiny.”
“Why is Jonathan being picked on? What are they afraid of? Did he not leave them with the power? It portents danger for everyone. Crisis in the Niger Delta at this time of economic downturn is grave crisis for Nigeria. It is high time the attacks are put to an end. Amaechi and his buccaneers must know that they are not unknown to our people.”
Jonathan’s wife, Patience is being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) due to the linking of bank accounts containing millions of dollars to her.
