2015: Ex-militants Threaten To Cut Fuel Supply To North If They Oppose To Jonathan’s Re-election

Published

on

Ex-militants in the Niger-Delta have threatened to cut off the supply of petroleum products to Northern Nigeria if the North oppose the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.

At their meeting in Oron, Akwa Ibom State, the militants also threatened to ensure that the North did not benefit from crude oil proceeds generated from the Niger Delta region.

The ex-militants under the aegis of the Leadership, Peace and Cultural Development Initiative assessed the handling of Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, projects by contractors at their meeting.

President of the group, Mr. Reuben Wilson, said that their interest was to ensure that Jonathan returned to office in 2015, while anybody opposed to the idea would be considered an enemy of the region.

“We met in Oron to review developments in the country, particularly the interest of the Niger Delta people. You will agree that the Niger Delta is the main stay of the nation’s economy. You will also agree with me that the Niger Delta people are sustaining the economy at great inconveniences and pains to its people and the environment. This has been the only time that the region has had the privilege of producing a president for the country.

“It is unthinkable that the North will be plotting against our son, intimidating him with bomb blasts here and there and causing the untimely death of scores of innocent Nigerians, all because they want to take back power.

“We have always seen the need for us to live together as one indivisible country and that is what Mr. President believes in,” Wilson said.
