Resign Buhari or We Will Stage a Protest – Niger Delta Militants
The Coalition of Niger Delta agitators made a statement on Monday, asking President Muhammadu Buhari to resign as he is not living up to expectations.
In a statement, the group claimed that not much had been achieved in terms of infrastructural development in the polity since he assumed the helm of affairs two years ago.
Truly, not much has been achieved in terms of infrastructural development since he resumed office. Nigeria’s situation has worsened, and a ‘cabal’ has taken advantage of the President’s health condition.
Signatories to the statement included: General Ekpo Ekpo (Niger Delta Volunteers; General Osarolor Nedam (Niger Delta Warriors); Major-Gen. Henry Okon Etete (Niger Delta Peoples Fighters); Major-Gen. Asukwo Henshaw (Bakassi Freedom Fighters); Major-Gen. Ibinabo Horsfall (Niger Delta Movement for Justice); Major-Gen. Duke Emmanson (Niger Delta Fighters Network).
The militants have declared that there would be a protest in all the Niger Delta states from September 12 which would ensure a shut down of markets, schools and all other public institutions.
The agitators also denied withdrawing their quit notice to northerners and Yoruba residents in the coastal region, insisting that the October 1 ultimatum still stands.
