Ex-militant leaders in Bayelsa State have cautioned politicians in the country not to heat up the polity with their reckless utterances.
The former creek combatants, who reiterated their support for President Goodluck Jonathan, called on the president to set up a probe panel into the recent utterances credited to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and some other politicians on possible violence in 2011 if they fail to realise their political aspirations on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The ex-militant leaders said though President Goodluck Jonathan should not allow such threats to bother him, the panel to be set up should investigation the implication of the threats on the nation’s polity.
A former member of the Upper Senate of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), Eris Paul known as Commander Ogunboss on behalf of the ex militant leaders in the state condemned the utterances of the former vice president saying, nobody can change what God has ordained.
The utterance of the former Vice President according to the ex militant leaders, “is a clear under estimation of the inner will of Nigerians to ensure a peaceful transition by 2011. No matter how small a Nigerian is, even the physically challenged has something they can build upon which is the inner and hidden strength. So, if he knows the implication of sectional bitterness for the survival of corporate Nigeria, he will not feel the pain of change.”
The ex-creek warlords, commended the President for the development policies and projects in the six zones of the country.
