WHO IS FOOLING WHOM? A SCENE FROM THE NATIONAL THEATRE IGANMU?
“To keep to our promise, the three days ultimatum given to Chief Government Ekpemupolo has elapsed and he failed to apologise to the Niger Delta Avengers, at 10:00 pm Thursday, May 5, 2016, our strike team 4 hit the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation crude and gas lines.“The crude line feeds the Warri and Kaduna refineries respectively, while the gas line feeds the Lagos and Abuja electricity power supply. With this development the Warri and Kaduna refineries will be shut down and all cities that depend on the gas line for power will all be in total darkness like the creeks of the Niger Delta.”
(Someone said this is part of the script handed down to them by Tompolo himself)
TOMPOLO (tongue in cheek)
“I am not part of the group. It is very unfortunate that I am still being accused of pipeline vandalism despite several press releases I have made, denying my involvement in the renewed hostilities in the Niger Delta region.”
(Reading of course from their comedy scripts.Do they really think we are that foolish?)
SEE WHAT GOVERNOR DICKSON SAID AFTER THE BOMBING
“We will like you to give us listening ears as we make the case for a fair and equitable representation in all cadres of the public service of the federation. A case in point is the absence of a permanent secretary from Bayelsa State in the Federal Civil Service.“As you are more aware than I am, since the retirement of Amb. Godknows Igali, our state is now one of the few states that does not have representation at that level. I don’t believe it is deliberate.“But, I will like to call your attention to that, because you are also a member of the Federal Executive Council.”
(After closing down oil facilities for some silly fees all Nigerians can clearly see the code of silence from the Niger-Delta leaders led by Governor Dickson.We wait and keep our fingers crossed to see what he will say 3 months from now)
The Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, Brig.Gen Paul Boroh, has condemned the attack on a major oil and gas facility of Chevron Nigeria Limited by a Niger Delta group which called itself the Niger Delta Avengers on Wednesday.Boroh said that the 30,000 ex-militants of the Niger Delta captured under the Amnesty Programme, were not part of those who staged the attack on the Chevron Abiteye pipeline.The Amnesty boss called on the security agencies to track down those behind the attack and ensure that they were brought to justice.
(How did he know?)
AND THE COMEDY CONTINUED
“We want you public to know that despite the heavy presence of military operatives, our activities can’t stop and it just waste of funds and time to let the Nigerian military protect oil installations”, the group bragged.
“This is a clear warning to all Niger Delta politicians, traditional rulers, community leaders and the likes of Tompolo to mind their business and leave the liberation of the Niger Delta people to the Avengers. Those who believe taking sides with the federal government to fight Niger Delta is the best option, Avengers are here on the ground. Neither you nor the federal government can stop us. If you don’t stay clear and let us carry out our activities, we will bring the fight to your individual doorsteps. Our major goal is to cripple the Nigeria economy”
“Since the declaration of the Presidential amnesty programme by late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, which I wholeheartedly embraced and accepted, I had sworn not to be part of arm struggle either overtly or covertly.It is very important to let President Muhammadu Buhari know and the security agencies in the country too that, some members of the ruling All Progressive Congress, (APC), particularly from Bayelsa and Delta States are not happy with him, because they have not gotten anything from him, after almost a year since he assumed office,”
(Now read this last statement again to know who is really sending bombing messages to PMB!)
