2019: Niger-Delta Ex-militants Shun Atiku, Vow To Work For Buhari's Reelection

2019: Niger-Delta Ex-militants Shun Atiku, Vow To Work For Buhari's Reelection

Buhari and Atiku
Ex-militants under the platform of the Coalition of Progressive Niger Delta ex-militants (CPNDE) yesterday rose from an emergency meeting in Lagos with a resolve to work for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The ex-militants said their decision to support Buhari’s second term bid was based on his efforts at deepening peace and stability in the Niger Delta by initiating meaningful projects and enhancement of human capital development through the Presidential Amnesty Programme.

In a statement signed by its President Edeinowei Galabagalaba and Secretary, Gbobgo Eduobor, the group dismissed threats by a self-styled General Isreal Eshanekpe Akporodo to work against President Buhari’s re-election. It said Akporodo’s threat was an effort at seeking political patronage.

“The so-called National Coalition of Niger Delta Ex-agitators which Akporodo claims to lead, is a phantom group merely on the pages of newspapers to promote his personal interest. He lacks the capacity to drive a process that would negatively affect the political fortunes of President Muhammadu Buhari in the Niger Delta region.

We are resolute in our decision to ensure victory for Buhari in the Niger Delta in the 2019 presidential election. Towards this end, we have commenced consultative meetings to forge a common front.

The Coalition of Progressive Niger Delta Ex-Militants, comprising several genuine camp leaders and their foot soldiers affirm our unwavering support for President Buhari”.

Leman Hauwa: Boko Haram has dealt with the world and its people - Global Amnesty Watch

Leman Hauwa: Boko Haram has dealt with the world and its people - Global Amnesty Watch

By Dansu Peter

The Global Amnesty Watch, GAW, has expressed shock at the murder Hauwa Leman, an aid worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), by members of thd Boko Haram sect.

Recall that the violent sect had after killing Leman on Monday, also vowed to enslave Leah Sharibu, one of the Dapchi school girls in their custody forever.

Tom Lever, In-charge,Africa Regional Office of the human rights group, described Leman's killing as barbaric, unacceptable.

Lever said such an act must be met with the harshest retribution possible to serve as a deterrence to Boko Haram and any other terror group in the world that the sacredness of human life is not to be toyed with.

Accordong to the group, "Killing another aid worker whose only crime is dedicating her life to make life better for others confirms that Boko Haram has sunken to its lowest level of weakness yet.

"The gruesome killing of the aid worker has confirmed that Boko Haram is a group driven by mindless wickedness and one that must be collectively dealt with by the entire world.

"We urge the Nigerian authorities to continue to tighten the noose around the terrorists until the last of those being held captive by Boko Haram is released as the desperate action on the part of the terrorists must not be allowed to slow down the operations meant to restore normalcy to the region.

"In view of the current atmosphere  in Nigeria, the Global Amnesty Watch appeals to every stakeholder in the country not to exploit the grief of Hauwa’s family as this will be most unkind to them at a trying time like this.

"Boko Haram must also not be encouraged  to see itself as being capable of unsettling the Nigerian state through evil acts like this as it will only motivate its fighters to abduct more helpless people.

'We share in the grief of Hauwa Leman’s family as we wish them to find the strength to bear the loss inflicted on them by these sick terrorists."
