A coalition of Niger Delta militants have vowed to shut down the nation if the Federal Authorities continues in its deliberate arraignment of the Chief of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onneghen.
Recall that Jutice Onnoghen, an Indigine of Cross Rivers state, has been requested to vacate his seat over his refusal to declare all his property and is scheduled for arraignment earlier than the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja tomorrow January 14th.
In a press release issued by Common John Dukku of the Niger Delta Watchdogs and Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators at the moment January 13th, the coalition of militants stated President Buhari by no means needed the appointment of Onnoghen because the CJN and should not shocked that efforts are being made to take away him from workplace. They argue that Onnoghen is being humilated as a result of he’s from the South South.
The militants warned all non indigenes who personal oil wells within the coastal space to put together to vacate their zone, whereas asking all individuals from the world working within the President Buhari authorities to “watch” their backs.
“The Common Meeting of the Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators is shocked to be taught in regards to the arraignment of the Chief Justice of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Justice Walter Omnoghen over allegations of his false declaration of property based mostly on a petition written by one Mr. Dennis Aghanya of the Anti-Corruption and Analysis Based mostly Information Initiative.
Within the first occasion, President Muhammadu Buhari was not disposed to Justice Omnoghens appointment to this place which is why he refused to affirm the appointment after so many months of serving in Appearing capability. It was in the course of the interval of his illness whereas in Britain that the Appearing President Prof. Osinbajo confirmed the appointment. We want to additionally recall that in August final 12 months, Mr. Matthew Seiyefa of Bayelsa State who was probably the most senior and most certified officer on the time was appointed to the place of Appearing Director-Common of the Division of State Safety by Prof. Osinbajo, solely to get replaced with a retired and junior officer to Mr. Seiyefa, Mr. Yusuf Magji Bichi by President Buhari as quickly as he resumed duties. We hereby vehemently resist any try to take away CJN Walter Omnoghen from workplace.
These go to affirm that there’s a excessive degree of hatred, injustice, discrimination and marginalization of the Niger Delta area by the APC-led authorities over the previous three years.
Earlier than the 2015 elections, we are able to recall a number of occasions that passed off within the political enviornment which may now be confirmed had been executed to discredit the federal government of President Goodluck Jonathan. Nationwide protests in 2012 led by prime labour leaders and Civil Rights activists together with the present APC Nationwide Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, Professor Wole Soyinka, Femi Falana, and Festus Keyamo greeted the federal government of the day towards the elimination of oil subsidy and resultant will increase within the pump costs of the nations petroleum merchandise. After a lot persistence, authorities had to bow to the need of the individuals.
In the course of the marketing campaign for re-election in 2015, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan a South South indigene was attacked in Bauchi state, we additionally witnessed how Northerners and Yorubas embarrassed him, even these he trusted betrayed him and did the whole lot potential to take away him as a result of he’s from a minority tribe in Niger Delta. Due to this fact, we wish to inform Nigerians and the Worldwide Group that any try for President Buhari to proceed in workplace past Could 2019 might be resisted by all means crucial. In the event that they achieve rigging election and convey again Buhari, then Nigeria ought to put together to exist with out the Niger Delta oil, Niger Delta won’t be a part of Nigeria anymore. The Northerners also needs to put together to depart the Niger Delta if President Buhari contiue past Could 2019; we’re ready to strike as soon as and for all and declare our Sovereign Niger Delta Republic.
What, nevertheless, surprises us is the truth that the identical individuals and teams that protested towards the petroleum subsidy elimination and will increase in costs of the petroleum merchandise are those who gave President Buhari the nod to start the subsidy elimination with none file of protests. This goes to affirm with none iota of doubt, that the protests towards the Jonathan administration had been embarked upon mainly as a result of he’s from the Niger Delta area. Equally, protests towards the Chibok Ladies abduction, and complaints about widespread corruption, excessive costs of commodity gadgets, and so forth had been the order of the day. They declared that they wanted change; thus, they ganged up, humiliated and betrayed Jonathan out of workplace and introduced President Buhari to energy. However at the moment the a lot desired modified has metamorphosed into chains and people so known as activists and civil rights protagonists are preserving mum even within the face of human rights abuses, and deployment of draconian legal guidelines paying homage to the navy period.
Right now, the costs of things have elevated geometrically and primary home items are not reasonably priced to teeming Nigerians. Value of petrol is now N145 per litre as towards N87 throughout Jonathans regime. A Bag of Rice now prices between N17,000 and N18,000 as towards N7,000 – N8,000 in the course of the fast previous regime.
Regardless that Boko Haram insurgency was distinguished throughout Jonathans regime, it’s now past management. We perceive that Governor Shettima of Borno who was towards the usage of navy motion towards the insurgents by the then Authorities on the pretext that harmless and innocent residents shall be killed within the navy operations, is now crying that the insurgency is past him. As quickly as APC authorities got here into energy in 2015, Fulani Herdsmen began killings; at the moment Fulani Herdsmen have killed uncountable variety of Nigerians, burn villages, maim and rape ladies with impunity with none arrest or prosecution. Right now the insecurity within the nation has degenerated to some extent the place individuals can not sleep with their eyes closed, the state of affairs is similar in Borno, Yobe, Zamfara together with Katsina state, the house of President Buhari. If President Buhari can’t safe his personal individuals in Katsina State, how can he safe the entire Nigeria?
In fact, he and his fellow tribalists ought to keep in mind that no matter goes spherical, comes round. Even the so known as combat towards corruption may be very selective, and ridiculously those that are branding the previous PDP-led authorities as probably the most corrupt are those that had been a part of the federal government since 1999 as governors, legislators, political appointees, and so forth., however at the moment they aren’t ashamed to blame the federal government of which they had been an integral half, for the alleged failures and bastadization of the economic system. Folks like former Speaker and Governor Rotimi Amaechi, now Buharis Marketing campaign Director Common and former Governor now Senator, Godswill Akpabio who had corruptly enriched themselves throughout their tenures have now discovered the APC their protected heaven.
The nations poverty index has skyrocketed, the speed of unemployment has elevated. Right now, Buhari is busy attempting to extradite erstwhile Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke from London, whereas beneath his very nostril, billions of naira are being drained fraudulently by the Aso Rock Cabal and his political appointees and key workplace holders throughout the nation. The NNPC has turn out to be a conduit pipe for siphoning the nations monetary assets. However to President Buhari and the Cabal, nothing unhealthy is going on within the governments led by the APC.the thieves are within the PDP-dominated States. Benue, Rivers and Akwa Ibom States have to be consistently harassed and their accounts frozen as a result of they aren’t APC. A current living proof is the alleged corruption cost with admissible proof leveled towards Governor Ganduje of Kano State, who PMB has already declared to be the very best Governor in Nigeria.
Nigeria is in a confused state as lately declared by the US of America. APC is ready to win the forthcoming elections by power. They’ve refused to marketing campaign as a result of they don’t have anything to inform the individuals in regards to the previous three years of their governance. Thus, they’re getting ready to win by any means by Vote Shopping for and falsification of election outcomes by INEC and Safety Businesses. We have now now come to the conclusion that if Buhari returns to energy the nation will not be protected. If Nigeria will stay as one indivisible unit, it’s going to have to survive with out the Niger Delta crude oil. We name on those that ganged up, protested and humiliated Goodluck Jonathan out of workplace, to stand up and do similar to President Muhammadu Buhari whose authorities is the worst within the historical past of governance within the nation.
It’s fairly unlucky that lately the Buhari-led APC authorities has resorted to harassment and intimidation of opposition with impunity, it’s a evident incontrovertible fact that the large corruption presently occurring within the APC led authorities has positioned Nigeria as one of many worlds most corrupt nation, but Buhari is celebrating corrupt officers so long as they’re APC members.
We due to this fact need to state categorically that if the Presidency failed to reverse it harassment towards the CJN, we may have no different possibility than to mobilize all of the Niger Delta fighters and start critical actions that may shake the nation and the entire world; we will shut down all of the oil wells within the Niger Delta. We additionally name on all of the Northerners and Yorubas who personal oil wells within the Niger Delta to put together to vacate instantly, we additionally need to warn our Niger Delta brothers who’re working for Buhari to watch their again and know that we’re watching them and their members of the family, we warn them to cease campaigning for Buhari within the Niger Delta. Be warned”.
