Use your vote to change the government -Group tasks militants

The President of the Human Security Initiative Pathfinder for Security, Peace and Development HUSIPED, a non-governmental organization based in Delta State, Comrade David Reje on Monday November 6 warned against further bombing and destruction of oil and gas facilities by militants in the Niger Delta region, saying that the move is counter-productive as it inflicts more suffering and pains on the people they want to liberate.

Comrade Reje who spoke in Warri, Delta State against the background by militants to re-strategize for another round of bombing and destruction following what they termed Government insincerity over their promise to develop the region, stating that “the government is only interested in getting oil revenue from the region that feeds the whole nation and better the lot of other regions outside the Niger Delta with social amenities”.

According to him, “the treasury looters are daily busy looting the money from the oil in the Delta region. It's too painful to bear in any democratic society. On daily basis the people of the region gets more and more frustrated and aggressive. We are being denied and deprived of our God given natural endowments meant for our development as it is being taken away forcefully by the Nigerian state”, he explained.

“My advice to the avengers is that if they resume attack on oil facilities and the platform, it will further pollute the environment which will in the future affect the lives of the people without any remedy. Let's not destroy ourselves by polluting the environment by bombing oil installations. You don’t liberate your people by putting them into suffering. Let's patiently wait and plan creatively well to effect a change through the ballot with all it takes,” he cautioned.
