President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent efforts to bring peace to the crisis ravaged by militants in the Niger Delta may witness yet another hindrance as a new militant group emerges.
Another new militant group, ‘Asawana Deadly Force of Niger Delta’ (ADFND), have emerged yesterday in the oil rich Niger Delta region, threatening to cripple the oil industry across the nine Niger Delta states unless the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government grants them, “Niger Delta Republic in the next couple of days.”
In a statement by its leader, Commander Olomubini Kakarakokoro, a.k.a No Mercy, the group said that:
“Except our demand for Niger Delta Republic is granted, without further notice to the Federal Government, we shall proceed to bomb Bonga field flow station, Asaba- Onistha Bridge, Third Mainland Bridge and other major bridges in the Southern part of the country, just for a start.
“The Federal Government should as a matter of urgency, withdraw all the military check points from the riverside areas of the Niger Delta, else we shall proceed to match against any baby military formation in the region without further notice.
“We are most dreaded, deadly and dangerous group in Niger Delta. Our team is comprised of specialists in different fields of war, and is poised to win the struggle for a Niger Delta State. Our struggle is not for monetary benefit or the so-called monthly N65,000 amnesty stipend. It is for the liberation and the development of the Niger Delta region.
“We therefore, warn every other group or persons as regards the fake dialogue process embarked upon by the Federal Government to know that they are not doing that for us. We are taking over from our brothers, the Niger Delta Avengers.
“As we speak all preparations and plans are on ground to strike and bring down the crude oil production to 0%, irrespective of the of the military presence in the region. The Federal Government will hear from us.”
If this group succeeds in executing any of their plans on the soil of Nigeria then we may have no other choice than to push for the resignation of that senile octogenarian clueless and certificateless Buhari. He is not just failing Nigeria, he has completely failed Nigerians. He came to power just to witch hunt people that offended him in the past. He has made Dansuki the greatest criminal in the world because Dansuki was among those that orchestrated is arrested in the past.
Buhari is busy chasing his personal enemies while the country is sinking. That unholy political matrimony that gave birth to APC is a fundamental mistake. E nor go better for Tinubu for making Buhari president. That man is better of as a Fulani cattle rearer.
Buhari has not been able to solve any problem he inherited from previous administrations. But rather, his unfortunate tenure has created more problems for us.
Dr. Goodluck Jonathan was able to flush out Boko haram from all their hitherto captured areas in Nigeria before the general election but today they have recaptured some of these areas again. APC government under Buhari keeps winning the war against terrorism on the pages of news papers. Lie lie Muhammad is the greatest lier in the universe.
Well over two million Nigerians have lost their jobs in different banks and companies. Multinational companies and investors are running from Nigeria on a daily basis courtesy of the obsolete cum archaic economic policies of Buhari that is obnoxiously garnished with illiteracy in an unprecedented crescendo.
This Buhari of a man has no other plan for Nigerian other than northernizing and Islamizing the nation. He has indirectly empowered his kinsmen from the Fulani extraction to go and be killing innocent Nigerians unopposed. We never knew that these simple looking duns hopping around with their cattle could be this dangerous not until their elder brother became president. He even went ahead to instruct soldiers not touch any Fulani man killing people simply because they are is brothers.
Today, Nigeria’s defense is controlled by one region and religion.
Air Force- North- Muslim
IG of Police- North-Muslim
DG of DSS- North- Muslim
Chief of Army Staff- North- Muslim
Immigrations- North- Muslim
Civil defense- North- Muslim
Defense Minister- North.- Muslim
Prison- North Muslim
Custom- North Muslim.
Yet this Buhari of a man is telling me that he is the president of Federal Republic of Nigeria? No no, he is the president of the northern Nigeria. Some of us are not surprised, he said on BBC news that he won’t rule the country equally. He said he will attend to issues based on the outcome of his election. Meaning regions that didn’t vote for him wont get anything in his government. And he expect us to fold our hands and keep quiet in the south. No no no, we own the oil, and we are more educated and enlightened.
Hunger, poverty, starvation, destruction, incarceration of personal enemies etc are the features of Buhari government.
If the PDP are so busy with internal politics and refuse to play opposition, indefatigable cum dogged comrades like us will take it upon ourselves to speak the truth to power because the power of the people is greater than those in power.
