Umuahiaâ€”A group, Movement for Peace and Development in Niger-Delta, MPDND, has commended the Acting President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan for last weekâ€™s dissolution of the federal executive council, saying the action would enable him inject fresh blood and vigour into his administration.
The group also condemned the bomb blast in Warri, Delta State,Â which disrupted the post-Amnesty talks last week, saying those who planted the bomb did not mean well for the Niger Delta people. The group equally condemned the call by Libyan leader for Nigeria to be split into two, describing the call as â€œmisplaced.â€
The group in a statement by its president, Mr Nnanna Nwafor, said it was satisfied with the level of progress recorded so far by Acting PresidentÂ Jonathan.
The statement lauded Jonathanâ€™s appointment of Presidential Advisory Council, which it said was made up of â€œmen of proven integrity and good reputation.â€
The group advised Jonathan to pay attention and concentrate his â€œenergy on things that would have immediate and tangible impact on the lives of Nigerians, such as stabilizing the power sector, securing the fragile peace in the Niger Delta and ensuring transparency in the forth coming general electionâ€, by implementing the Justice Uwais Electoral Reforms report. The group also advised the Acting President to overhaul the anti-corruption crusade for better service delivery.
On the reconstitution of his cabinet, the group advised him to shop for persons with proven track record, who will consolidate the gains already recorded by the administration.
