NDDC Chairman, Sen. Victor Ndoma-Egba
Following the renewed threats of Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to commence hostilities in the Region, the Chairman, Governing Board of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, SAN has appealed to the militant group to follow the path of peace and reconsider its threat to destroy oil installations in the Region. 

Ndoma-Egba who implored them to sheathe their swords and allow Government to continue to roll out its plans for the Region said that they should become for development and not destruction.

He advised that violence is never the best option, stressing that the region is already overstretched as a result of incessant self-inflicted damages and earnestly needs recuperation and rapid development.

In a release signed by his Special Assistant, Communications, Mrs. Clara Braide, the NDDC Chairman appealed for support and cooperation towards finding a lasting solution as well as maintain dialogue with the Federal Government towards a path of peace and sustainable development. 

He said: “Our environment is already polluted and is in dire straits, we are urgently in need of restoration. Destroying oil pipelines and installations would worsen our already badly polluted environment and expose our people to sickness and untold hardship.It would aggravate our already bad situation and expose innocent children, women, and youths to grave danger.

We appeal to NDA to please give peace a chance and allow the Government and Stakeholders find lasting solutions to the problems confronting our Region".

He addes that "At the end of the day, our Region would be better developed and prosperous if we cooperate with NDDC and other stakeholders in our efforts to finding a peaceful and permanent resolution to our problems as the Commission has put in place, strategic intervention plans that should transform the Region".

Ndoma-Egba further emphasized that President Muhammadu Buhari has already demonstrated in various ways, willingness and deep commitment to address the issues plaguing the Region.

He admonished that,  “The Region is the Goose that lays the Golden Egg, it is our heritage and for the sake of our future generation, should not be destroyed".

I therefore appeal to my people of Niger Delta to give our Region a chance to grow, let us join hearts and hands together to protect, rebuild and restore the glory of our land.  Let us be militants for development and not destruction"
