The Niger Delta Nonviolence Agitators' Forum, NDNAF, yesterday, took the campaign for peace and the need to remain nonviolent amongst Niger Deltans living in the FCT to the good people of Rivers Community, Abuja.

 

The team, led by its Chapter Chairman, Comrade Embale Jonathan, was received on arrival by the President of the Rivers State Community, Abuja, Bro. Thankgod Bob-Emmanuel and other members of the EXCO.

 

In his briefing, Comrade Embale Jonathan, told his host that they were in Rivers Community to chart the way forward on the new narrative of nonviolent agitation and emphasized that there was need for the people of the region to have a paradigm shift and apply nonviolent approach in engaging the government on  Niger Delta issues, especially given the current state of insecurity in the country.

 

 

 

 

The Forum informed the Rivers Community that the voice of the people of the region could be better heard, formidable and stronger if the people are united.

 

Comrade Embale while highlighting the mission and vision of the Forum, also underscored the importance for NDNAF and Rivers'Community to collaborate and work together as one united Niger Delta people to promote their welfare, adding that the Forum, despite the short period of its formation has recorded huge successes in mobilising the people of the region to speak with one voice.

 

The Secretary of Rivers' Community, Mr ... in his statement thanked the Forum for the giant strides and expressed the willingness of Rivers' Community's to partner and work with groups that are tailored towards advancing the welfare of Niger Deltans, noting that NDNAF has good vision for a better and stronger Niger Delta people.

 

Also speaking, the Legal Adviser of the Rivers Community, Barr. Ngo Kingsley while speaking commended the Forum and maintained that the Niger struggle needs groups that are focused and determined spirit to carry on with the activities.

 

Barr. Kingsley further stated that the Niger Delta needs such an umbrella body to be fighting for the region, and therefore enjoined the Forum to be more consistent and focused in their activities without any forms of distractions.

 

In his response, the President, Rivers Community Bob-Emmanuel lauded the group for the initiative to promote the overall interest of all Niger Deltans.

 

Bob-Emmanuel, promised to preach the new narratives to his people and assured the group of his readiness to collaborate with the Forum for effective and mutually beneficial relationship.

 

 

The President however advised that just as the name of the Forum implies, protest and other forms of antisocial behaviour should not be associated with the group.
