Niger Delta Youths call for dialogue to end militancy

21 June 2016, 21:27

Delta - The Niger Delta Youth Coalition (NDYC) has called for inclusive dialogue to end the militancy in the region.

National Secretary of NDYC, Dr Joe Amakiri, said for the dialogue to be successful, there was every need to involve the right persons who would not place their personal or political interest above that of the region or the nation.

Amakiri proposed the inclusion of youth in the dialogue process.

“NDYC is opposed to violent actions, including the destruction of oil installations. It has the capacity to reach youths in the region and can contribute meaningfully in the peace process aimed at lasting peace,” said Amakiri.

“Unless the right persons were involved, the dialogue would not be able to achieve the much desired success,” he added.

He urged the militants to wholeheartedly embrace dialogue and stop further bombing of oil pipelines and also advised Federal Government to suspend arresting of community people as both parties have agreed to negotiation.

Militant groups have been engaged in violence in the Niger Delta for some weeks in protest of degradation of the environment and allegations the area was underdeveloped despite its vast resources.
