NDDC boss, Ndoma-Egba reacts to Avengers’ threat to cripple Nigeria

Chairman, Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Sen. Victor Ndoma-Egba (SAN), has reacted to threat by Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to resume hostilities that will “cripple Nigeria”.

In a statement by his spokesman, Mrs Clara Braide, Ndoma-Egba appealed to the group to tow the path towards a peaceful resolution of all contentious issues.

He stressed that the damage done would be felt by the region that is already overstretched and earnestly needs rapid development.

He assured that the Commission is doing all it can to intervene towards finding a lasting solution and appealed that dialogue be maintained with the Federal Government toward a path of peace and sustainable development.

Ndoma-Egba said: “Our environment is already polluted and is in dire need of restoration, destroying oil pipelines and installations would further destroy our environment and expose our people to sickness and untold hardship.

“It would worsen our already bad situation and expose innocent women, children and youths to grave danger.

“At the end of the day it is the region that will be badly damaged and set backwards.

“NDDC is not resting on its oars in our efforts to finding a peaceful and permanent resolution of issues of development as the Commission has strategic intervention plans that should transform the region. To achieve this, however, peace is a must.”

Ndoma-Egba emphasised that President Muhammadu Buhari means well for the Niger Delta region and has already demonstrated this in various ways and would continue to address the issues.

“We would be doing a great disservice to ourselves and our future generations if we continue to destroy our own God given heritage in order to prove points that are already proven”.

“I passionately appeal to the conscience of our people to give the region a chance to heal. Give us a chance to rebuild and restore the glory of our region”, he said.
