Many Nigerians are getting confuse about the true identity of the Niger Delta Avengers, anonymity has been their greatest weapon, one can easily say they learnt that from Boko Haram. Anonymity made it too difficult for the Nigerian Government to track and bring the Niger delta avengers to book.
Last week the Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo said that the Niger Delta Avengers are not freedom fighters but economic warriors who are fighting for their own private pockets. Professor Osinbajo delivered the second foundation lecture of Elizade University,Ilaramokin, Ondo state entitled “The Future is here earlier than we thought”, declared that “the so called avengers are not freedom fighters but fighting for their own economic benefits. They are avenging for their private pocket and that is why government is not talking with them”.
The Vice President however said that the Federal Government has concluded arrangements to tackle the menace of pipeline vandalism in the Niger/Delta region. While condemning the activities of the militants who claimed responsibility for the vandalization of petroleum pipelines in the Niger/Delta region, said “the previous government neglected the region for several years, hence the current challenges in the region.
ccording to a press release by IPOB: INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA SUPPORT OUR KITH & KIN – THE NIGER DELTA AVENGERS
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu stated they support their kith and kin – the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), who are fighting for the freedom of their people from the enslaving Islamic Republic of Nigerian Government. We want to place it on record that IPOB under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has no connection with some groups who are claiming on the pages of Nigerian newspapers that they do not support our fellow freedom fighters – the NDA.
[totalpoll id=”8080″] The NDA have consistently stated that the release of IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a precondition for any discussion with Nigeria. Unfortunately and disgracefully, the incompetent and intellectually challenged Nigerian Government has swept this demand under the carpet while magnifying the notion of amnesty payments and resource control as reasons for the NDA‘s actions. For the avoidance of doubt, the NDA is fighting for the freedom of the people of Biafra and not for amnesty payment or for resource control as some commentators would like to believe. When Biafra is finally liberated from the bondage called Nigeria, resources shall be controlled by the owners of the land where those resources are located. The perennially incompetent Nigerian Government should stop deceiving the entire world into believing that what the freedom fighters of NDA are demanding is resource control.
According to IPOB this young men are freedom fighters who are using the only language the Nigerian Government understands which is violence. The leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been in detention for close to a year now and more than 100 of his supporter who where protesting without arms have lost their live at the hands of the Nigerian Military, Amnesty international has conducted investigation and even published that the Nigerian Government was guilty of using excessive force on peaceful protesters resulting in the killings.
PUBLIC OPINION POLL: is a very important element of democracy, public opinion polls now play an important role in politics, Polls tell us what proportion of a population has a specific viewpoint. They do not explain why respondents believe as they do or how to change their minds. This is the work of social scientists and scholars. Polls are simply a measurement tool that tells us how a population thinks and feels about any
This can be useful in helping different cultures understand one another because it gives the people a chance to speak for themselves instead of letting only vocal media stars speak on behalf of all. Opinion polling gives people who do not usually have access to the media an opportunity to be heard.
When everyone is saying something any reasonable government and international community will listen…..
