BOMBSHELL! ABORT PLANS OF DECLARING NIGER DELTA REPUBLIC ON AUGUST 1, BECAUSE NIGER DELTANS DO NOT SUPPORT IT.

The Centre for Peace and Environmental Justice (CEPEJ), on Tuesday urged the militant group, Adaka Boro Avengers, ABA, to give peace a chance, stressing that no indigene of the region will support the threat of the militants to declare Niger Delta a republic by August 1.

 

Recall that ABA had in a statement threatened the unity of Nigeria, saying the Niger Delta region will be declared a republic come August 1.

Reacting to ABA’s threat, the coordinator of CEPEJ, Sheriff Mulade, in a statement he issued in Warri, Delta State, urged the group to embrace the peace talk initiated by the Federal Government.

According to the group, “ABA should give peace a chance and take advantage of the federal government dialogue because no meaningful development can take place in a rancorous environment.

“Adaka Boro Avengers should abort their alleged plan to declare Niger -Delta Republic on August 1 because Niger Deltans do not support it.

 

“We know successive governments neglected, deprived and underdeveloped the region in spite of her huge contributions to the national economy.

 

“But what we needed now is constructive engagement with the federal government since President Buhari has considered dialogue as the best option to engage the stakeholders and find a lasting solution to the lingering quest for development towards ending militancy.” ‎
