Avengers Ceasefire: Niger Delta Civil Society Blames FG

Posted on November 4, 2017
 

The suspension by the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) of the unilateral ceasefire it had committed to since mid-2016, has been blamed on the Federal Government of Nigeria’s insincerity, inertia and blind belief in the self-serving players in the FGN by the Presidency.

Rising from an Emergency NEC Meeting in Uyo, the coalition of civil society and community groups in the Niger Delta region, UNDEDSS (The United Niger Delta Energy Development Security Strategy) issued a terse statement calling on all agitated groups in the region NOT to lose all faith in the power of negotiations, even while upbraiding the Federal Government for what UNDEDSS termed its insensitivity and insincerity, as evidenced especially in it’s ignoring the nationally popular call for RESTRUCTURING and non-take-off of the National Maritime University, Okerenkoko till date!

“Nigerians have nobody to blame, but the Presidency which has not shown good faith concerning the Niger Delta region, for the imminent negative impact on the national economy of this portentous suspension of a ceasefire that was not respected by the Federal Government ab initio anyway “, said UNDEDSS Secretary General, Mr. Tony I Uranta, when releasing the Press Statement, after the meeting.
