THE NIGER DELTA ISSUE IS BEYOND THE PAYMENT OF ALLOWANCES, IF YOU WANT PEACE, RELEASE NNAMDI KANU--NDPDF

THE NIGER DELTA ISSUE IS BEYOND THE PAYMENT OF ALLOWANCES, IF YOU WANT PEACE, RELEASE NNAMDI KANU--NDPDF

Published by Family Writers

The leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Democratic Front, General Playboy, has said the promise by the Federal Government to pay the backlog of allowances owed ex-militants will not stop the Niger Delta struggle.

General Playboy said in a statement on Saturday that the Niger Delta struggle was beyond the stipends being paid former militants.

He added that most of those benefitting from such allowances were not part of the oil-rich region’s struggle.

“The problem of Niger Delta is not about paying stipends or allowances to former militants. Some of the people, who embraced amnesty, were not the real agitators and so, they are not part of the struggle,” the militant said.

Maintaining that there cannot be Niger Delta without Biafra, the militant leader expressed the need for the Federal Government to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

“The Niger Delta issue is beyond the payment of backlog of allowances. That is not what we are looking for. If you want peace, release Nnamdi Kanu. There can never be Niger Delta without Biafra.

“The Federal Government should face the real issue. Allowance payment or declaring a new amnesty programme is not the issue.

He said further, “For President Buhari to continue to hold Nnamdi Kanu, even when the whole world has told him to release him, shows that he (President) is not ready for peace.”

  1. General Playboy has spoken the mind of our people. Release #NnamdiKanu, conduct an internationally supervised #referendum for #Biafran people. That is the democratically way.
