“Give Buhari time to address your demands’’ – APC caucus tells Niger Delta Avengers

The South-East caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday urged the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to sheath its sword and give President Muhammadu Buhari time to address their demands.

This is contained in a statement released to newsmen in Abuja by the spokesman of the party in the South-East, Mr Osita Okechukwu.

The APC group told the NDA to be mindful of the laudable projects the current administration had lined up for the Niger Delta and allow the president some time to execute them.

The group, however, said that if the avengers had grouse with the situation, they should direct attention of former President Goodluck Jonathan, who failed to take certain actions to address the problems in the area.

They said that for five years, Jonathan failed to clean-up the Niger Delta, failed to complete East-West road and failed to review oil blocs’ allocation

The statement said that the former president also failed to amend the Constitution to the Avengers’ taste and failed to build the three Greenfield Refineries which he awarded.

“Accordingly, we plead with our brothers, the NDA, for God’s sake, to do a deep re-think and graciously allow peace to reign for our collective national interest and indeed, to save the Niger Delta from ruins.

“No sane Nigerian will pray for the recurrence of ugly incidents like the Odi, 1999; Zaki Ibiam, 2000 and Gbaramatu, 2009 or the unwarranted ugly scenario which the Niger Delta Avengers are consciously simulating.

“It is our candid view that the bombing of Forcados pipeline, Bonga oil field, Chevron trunk lines and other oil and gas installations will not facilitate the implementation of 2014 National Conference Report,’’ the statement said.

It added that bombing the facilities would not enhance funding of the Amnesty Programme or make for the clean-up of the Niger Delta.

  1. He’s not going to address any demand .. let the war begin on them. You’re talking for yourself sponsored of the bombing . He won’t and we won’t allow him address any fucking thing .

  2. Let the war began let Nigeria divide

  3. Then urge him to swift to action

  4. Lazy, drunk, hopeless and directionless young men should taste the bitter pill of war. No negotiations with any terrorist in whatever form.

  5. Jonathan regime, billions of money for amnesty, buhari regime maybe another billions of money for amnesty while genuine citizens suffer. Maybe the so called APC caucus now want to use them as avenue to steal their own. If these militants get these money and make sure through them it reaches the masses, i would have supported them. Anyway, i dont stop you from sending your men to come and shoot me but if you die on your way or within my vicinity as you are coming to kill me, rest in peace. Buhari should not give you people any time, he should try and give every citizen of the country one million naira each through the banks. Thats my opinion for now, with time, it is going to be an order.

  6. I also suggest that Ministry for Niger Delta should be abolish bcos those who the ministry is created for they dont value it . They are very hopeless pple i dont blame president Jonathan for abandoning them during his tenured . Infact ,there is no need for addressing their problem, the military should work on president directive . The ingrate

  7. Discuss with them and settle with them.
    No more killing

  8. Buhari failed woefully when he did nothing about his kinsmen’s onslaught against the people of nigeria. He is so one sided.

  9. failing to let d sleeping dog lie will culminate to u being awake. o metara buru. my only care is on d innocent that may be victimized

  10. most of you are used to poverty by the time the military recieves no salary like some states for 4 month the would surelly turn their guns against buhari go and ask Burkinafaso

  11. Ask abasanjo how many soldiers died during his regime. Have dey accounted for the soldiers?I just pity for Nigerian soldiers who will embark on this journey of death

  12. Too late. They asked for it.

  13. Yes nigeria sai baba buhari

  14. No, I disagree. Let them continue to ravage their lands with oil spillage. Why won’t they die for militancy. Those who practiced it before are now multi billionaires and living large. These avengers too want their own billions. Once you cave into rewarding criminality, it never ends. It is like kidnapping. It will pay the FG to face the problems squarely until it doesn’t pay anyone anymore to create trouble. Embark on serious infrastructural development of the Niger Delta. Ensure the clean up of the land and waters. Once the people see the genuine intention of the government, it is the people that will engage any idiot destroying them and claiming militancy.
    To make a few criminals billionaires again, at the expense of the suffering masses of the creeks…..No way.

  15. Give Buhari time to kill all Eastern States abi, since killing of our people by your Buhari Herdsmen have you talk to Buhari to declare Fulani herdsmen as terrorists? Have you had the same boldness to tell your master Buhari to release Kanu? If no, then all Apc members are beast and useless

    • Since naa don’t u know dat dey are beast of DE nation fala sang about

    • Kanu vowed to crush niger deltans, calling them cowards, claiming their territory & u are here talking for kanu. What is ur biz with that irritant. U want to be slaves to them again. GOD will crush kanu first for threatening us.

    • Paul, I know who my brothers is = Ibo’s , you can’t denied the fact that some of our people are cowards and you know it. Any Militant that ignored fighting for freedom and liberation of his people but going his way collecting bribe from Enemy camps in the name of Amnesty is a coward. Fight for the future of all and not for selfish motive

    • @ Paul Umoh. Kanu had always called the Ijaws, Urhobos, the Ibibios, efiks, Itsekiris etc, our brothers. I don’t know where you heard about crushing anyone. IPOB don’t carry arms. Am sure you are an APC man and think Biafra is all about politics.

  21. D MILITARY OF OBJ IS NOT OF GEJ OR DR PMB OF TODAY, LETS JST PEACE REIGN, WE WILL AL SUFFER IT, DEY WILL LOOSE ON REVENUE ACCRUAD TO DEM, AND ALLOCATION IS BASE ON REVENUE ACCRUAD

  22. The president has already declare war on them, so what could they be waiting for?

  23. What time, rather belated his outburst on CRUSH NigeR Delta AVENGERS. He has over reacted by giving dat directive. As a good leader u need 2 b patience, perseverance control ur emotions nd what u say means a lot whether positive or negative. There are lots of challengeds b4 him nd his utmost priority is how 2 solve dem by God grace. Pls, let him reconsider d order he issued on d military regarding Niger Delta. As an elder he should learn 2 b tolerance.

  24. Dalua, you have no peace that’s why u voice and sound like that. The Bible said out of the abundance of the Heart, the mouth speaks. If u do not change, u’ll regret when it is too late.

  25. I DID NOT HEAR ANY STATEMENT FROM THE SOUTH EAST CAUCUS OF APC ON THE NSUKKA MASSACRE……….AND WHEN NORTH GOVERNORS, NASS MEMBERS AND EVEN THE SULTAN SUPPORTED THE FULANI MASSACRES …..AND THREATENED THE SOUTH EAST LRADERS.

  26. Buhari said he wont negotiate with Biafrans

  27. Something being denied since 1914

  28. . . . That may be during his second . . .

  29. Akuko umuaka ekporogo Egbe baa Creek God punish buhari this life na turn by turn boko boys did it to GEJ and none of the said anything

  30. APC All Problems Continues, zoo country.

  31. Is dat all u can say @abdulhameed dalau?

  32. Animals,you islamic party can not advise buhari not to send military but to dialogue with them,
    but you people have mind to advise niger delta militants

  33. Confused people, i am sorry for guys. As dey say…. Troble de sleep inyanga go waikam…..

  34. I think its the best advice so far from you people good, without discussing this issues no amount of war machine can bring peace when people are fighting for what they believe in. Peace must be restored IJN Amen.

  35. He has nothing to offer Niger Delta people.

  36. ND Avengers have no genuine demand. Buhari shud not succumb to thhese terrorists. They ignored Akwa Ibom when their people were sharing money juicy appointment with Jonathan. Jonathan deceived & neglected akwa ibom. He denied us juicy appointment to join the looting team. I hope those igbos who are inciting these terrorists will be handy to fight for them.

    • You are really an idiot, you said Igbos are looking for your land ,they want to enslave you but you prefer to be in arewa kingdom, bros you are free to join chad if you like nobody is forcing you to be a Biafran

    • Uzochukwu, what gives u d impression that we may not leave nigeria b4 igbos who are merely making noise to attract settlement if God want it. If nigeria disintegrate we in Akwa Ibom with or without other ND states or ethnic nationalities will insist on our sovereignty instead of returning to subjugation under utopian biafra. U can tell me what we benefitted from igbos in eastern nigeria. We have d manpower & d resources to b be on our own. We want to be like singapore. Why shud we join what Fr Mbaka called evil. Every body knows that if an ibo chap cannot contribute meaningfully to a discourse he will resort to insult. I challenge u on this evil biafra. We will rather join camaroun. Biafra is cursed unless ibos pay reparation for killing & robbing thousands of our people during d civil war.

  37. Thunder fire you people there.

  38. No time for nonsense,as u have forgotten that bubu is a fulaniman with a harden mind,give him time, he will reinforce and harm u. NDA dont underestimate gambaris
