ABUJA—Acting National Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr Timi Frank, has called on the Niger Delta Avengers and other militant groups in the Niger Delta region to lay down their arms and give the Federal Government a chance to redeem its promises to the region.
In a statement yesterday, in Abuja, Frank also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the approval and composition of a 13-member Governing Council and 10-member Board of Trustees for the cleanup of Ogoniland in Rivers State.
He called on the various groups in the region to lay down their arms and give the president the benefit of doubt, saying that President Buhari will surely deliver on his promises to the region.
He said the president has demonstrated to the people of Niger Delta that his commitment to the cleanup of Ogoniland was not a political rhetoric.
Frank further urged leaders in the region to take advantage of “a sincere president like Buhari who has started doing for the region what their son, former president Goodluck Jonathan, could not do for six years as president.”
