One of the militant groups in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria, Adaka Boro Avengers (ABA) has accused the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum corporation (NNPC), Maikanti Baru of disrespecting the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources,Dr Ibe Kachikwu and also, appointing only northerners into the oil firm.
According to The Sun,ABA warned that “Nigeria’s oil sector does not belong to the Fulani’s alone but to every citizen in this country.”
They demanded that Baru should tender an open apology to Ibe Kachikwu and also,drop his appointees on the NNPC board,within two weeks,or the group would disrupt hostility at Bonny,Nembe and Forcasdos trunk lines.
A statement signed by ABA spokesman, General Edmos Ayayeibo,noted that the relative peace in the Niger Delta is still fragile.
“It as come to our notice that president Muhammadu Buhari, and his All Progressives Congress-led administration doesn’t care about the unity of Nigeria.
"We expected the number one citizen of this country to address the issues affecting every region of Nigeria on independence day,rather,he aggravated the relative peace in the various regions, especially in the Niger Delta.
“President Muhammadu Buhari speaks to the country as if we are in a military dictatorship.We voted for him not to blame PDP,but to do what he was promising the people of Nigeria during his campaign,tagged Change.
