New NDDC Boss: Niger Delta leaders warn Bayelsa, Ondo youths over agitations

Prominent Niger Delta leaders on Thursday July 11, reportedly warned Ondo and Bayelsa youths over their agitations regarding expected appointment of a new Chairman and Managing Director for Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, saying enough is enough.

 

Fresh Angle International can report that the warning by the leaders, is sequel to a statement released after a meeting held in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State.

 

According to the leaders, the heated agitations, are capable of, “deepening the crisis in the Niger Delta Region. These demands are capable of crippling the progress of the region.”

 

The statement signed by the National Chairman of South-South Front, Chief John Harry, urged the youths to, “stop insulting the sensitivities of the generality of Nigerians by demanding for the Chairman and Managing Director’s position in the Commission. The demonstrations by some misguided youths in Port-Harcourt, Akure and Abuja, should be seen as one of the diversionary tactics by enemies of the Niger Delta Region, to shift President Muhammadu Buhari’s attention from the NDDC ACT”.

 

The leaders cautioned the youths against anything that could scuttle the bond among the nine oil producing states.

 

“What is the legal backing or power for demanding the positions? The youths and indeed their sponsors in Abuja, Port-Harcourt and Akure are blind to the fact,” the statement stressed.

  

They also urged President Buhari to purge the region of selfish manipulations and outright illegalities.
