Militant group rejects NDDCG as dialogue team

28 July 2016, 20:15

Delta - The Ndokwa ethnic militant group(NEM), said it did not mandate the Niger Delta Dialogue Contact Group, NDDCG, led by former military governor of old Rivers State, King Alfred Deitte Spiff, Florence Ita Giwa, or Chinoye Aliyu to negotiate on their behalf with the Federal Government.

In its reaction to a recent statement by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, that NDDCG would act as a clearing house for “all mushroom and internet-based militant groups in the region,” Onyechukuyenife Chukubuzor, told the Federal Government particularly the National Security Adviser, NSA, and all relevant authorities that the self-styled Niger Delta Dialogue and contact committee, coordinated by Dr. Ajuni and chaired by Diette-Spiff does not have the mandate to negotiate for the Ndokwa region.

He stressed that dialogue team code named Aaron 2 as compiled by MEND only has Ijaw agenda and do not accommodate other ethnic nationalities in the oil and gas industry like Ndokwa, Isoko, Itsekiri, and Uhrobos and this is totally unacceptable.

The group stated that the current crisis is purely and truly an Ijaw self determination quest involving grievous issues which predate the current administration.
