PDP Crisis: Stay off Niger Delta, Ex-Militants Warn Atiku
Former leaders of militant groups in the Niger Delta region have declared former vice President Atiku Abubakar a persona non-grata in the Niger Delta region, saying that they would not watch the same man who had benefited a lot from the resources of the region, take others along for his personal interest.
The militants also asked Atiku Abubakar to tender an apology to President Goodluck Jonathan for tearing the ruling PDP apart.
The group, under the aegis of Leadership, Peace and Cultural Development Initiative made these assertions in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital on Saturday during a meeting to review political developments in the country.
Addressing reporters in Port Harcourt after the meeting, president of the group, General Reuben Wilson, said the former Vice President was now an enemy of the Niger Delta people since he had decided to lead other members of the PDP to organise what he called a political coup against Jonathan.
Wilson said, “It is unfortunate that Atiku who has benefitted so much from the Niger Delta oil is leading dissidents in a political coup against the first South Southerner to ever occupy the seat of president of Nigeria.
“We are aware of his vast business interests in the Niger Delta and we are warning him in his own interest to stay off the region. He cannot be enjoying our oil money and at the same time use the same money to fight against the owners of the oil”.
