A group of ex-militants from the Niger-Delta region has assured that there will be no crisis if President Goodluck Jonathan loses in the forthcoming Presidential election.
The youth who spoke on the platform of Niger-Delta Coalition, NDC and Delta Coalition for Change DCC, also pledged their support to whoever wins the Presidential election, assuring that they will not join the bandwagon of war mongers who have issued threats of violence should Jonathan fail the elections.
They reminded their Ijaw brothers that, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
In a statement signed in Abuja on Monday by two leaders of the group, Comrade Young Piero and Peters Asuluwa, the youth promised to ensure that peace would reign in the Niger-Delta region.
They also called on the political parties, their candidates and supporters to accept the outcome of the elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
“We are assuring Nigerians that there will be no breach of peace in the Niger-Delta on or before the general elections of the 28th March and 11th of April, as we look forward to a free and fair election, the judiciary has clearly stated that the armed forces has no role in the general election, as such any attempt for military deployment to voting centers is a sabotage to our judiciary.
“We are standing on the part of justice for now that no one has the monopoly to carry out such threat against national security if the government of the day has the peace and sustainability of this great nation at heart.
“We are one Nigeria, let no one be troubled, pray for peace and free/fair election, whoever emerges as the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria should be given the necessary support from the North, South, West and East of this great nation.”
