Niger Delta Crisis: 'Military Approach Not Solution'


The Center for Peace & Environmental Justice (CEPEJ), a Niger Delta based

NGO, has called on all stakeholders to genuinely support President Buhari

to save our dwindling economy and devastated environment.

National Coordinator, CEPEJ Comrade Sheriff Mulade, while addressing

journalists in Warri, noted that force for force will cause more violence

and damage the already depleted economy.
He strongly appealed and advised security agents particularly the Nigerian

Army, the Navy and the DSS to support the Buhari dialogue process and halt

further threats of force to give confidence to the people.

Ït is pertinent to state that any attempt at invading, harassing,

intimidating and arresting innocent citizens in the region will be seen as

betrayed of trust from government security agents.
Mulade, however, expressed the belief that Nigerians would rise above the

level of individualistic, ethnic and myopic reasoning to a broader

perspective that will give a sense of belonging to all Nigerians.

He urged the government to show genuine commitment and seriousness towards

achieving positive results from the dialogue rather than making it a

political jamboree.
“I want strongly caution militants in the region particularly ABA to abort

their alleged plan to declare Niger Delta Republic which is not the

primary interest of the people but development and remediation of the

devastated environment”, he said.
