A group known as Niger Delta Leaders Assembly, NDLA, has given a stern warning to any person(s) or group(s) or even any region of the country who uses or will use President Goodluck Jonathan’s right to a second tenure and ridicule him or hold his office in disdain.
Speaking at a function in Port Harcourt, the President of the Group, Dr. Carson Agidah and its Acting -General Secretary, Samuel Abasiekong-Abasiekong said; “We shall not go to war with anybody, neither shall we antagonise any government, political parties, their members or leaderships, but we advise all disgruntled persons to allow the President, our son, govern the country without interference and seek re-election as other presidents did.
“We remind Obasanjo that phenomena like insecurity and corruption were born in Nigeria by past administrations, started crawling in past administrations and started walking and running in Obasanjo’s administration.
“The former president should have arrested, prosecuted and executed them, but he didn’t do so. So, if in Jonathan’s time insecurity and corruption have developed wings and are flying, should Jonathan be blamed?”
While thanking Obasanjo for the role he played in the emergence of a Niger Deltan as President, added that Obasanjo’s nationalistic action for his country was not enough for Ex- president to roll Jonathan into a slave.
Speaking further they said: “On the alleged killer squad owned by Jonathan, every Nigerian knows those things do not look like Jonathan at all. If Obasanjo knows where someone is training a killer squad to kill some Nigerians, he should be invited by security agencies to show where the training is taking place and who owns them.”
On the issue of 2015, they said; “The entire Niger Delta is sending him and we shall buy his form to stand the election. There is an indisputable fact that his administration has been better than former administrations.”
