NDLF COMMENDS DELTA GOV OVER RELIEF MATERIALS FOR AYAKOROMOR
The Niger Delta Liberation Force (NDLF) has commended the Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and other individuals who have contributed relief materials to the people of Ayakoromor community.
NDLF, in a statement by its spokesman, Mark Anthony, said the 'gesture of the Delta State governor for donating relief materials and huge cash gift to the Ayakoromor victims has renewed hope of the Ijaws and genuine freedom fighters in Delta State with faith and confidence in the Uduaghan-led administration.'
While expressing support for the second term bid of Uduaghan, NDLF said it had dispatched its soldiers to various parts of the Ijaw nation to ensure that the people were given the opportunity to register to exercise their civic rights by choosing their leaders in the 2011 elections.
Meanwhile, a group, Veterans of Ijaw Struggle has decried the continued state of insecurity in various parts of the country.
The group in its inaugural meeting in Yenagoa frowned at the violence that has rocked Plateau and Borno states in recent times.
In a communiquÃ© signed by Kalsuo Deo Doupere, Justice Demeyai and Nengi James, chairman, secretary and publicity secretary respectively, it called on the Federal Government to do everything to end the ugly trend.
According to the group, the security agencies must wake up from their slumber and fish out the perpetrators of the violence in the two states.
They noted that the masterminds had to be brought to book because their action was capable of threatening the continued existence of the country.
It congratulated President Goodluck Jonathan on his recent victory at the presidential primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and called on all Ijaw people to participate actively in the voters' registration to ensure that they vote for credible leaders in the 2011 elections.
