Convener of the meeting, Pureh Kalango, in a reading of the communique stated, “We believe the political crisis that heralded the 2015 elections in the Niger Delta, especially Rivers state was the biggest mistake the region made.

“Towards another political dispensation in 2023, RG23 as a grassroot movement warns that any individual or group that attacks the person of former President Jonathan or his wife, Dame Patience Jonathan does not mean well for the Niger Delta and risks political rejection.”

Samuel Urang, Head Mobilization, for the group, said rather than escalate their partisan differences, RG-23 is committed to supporting the transport minister and the former president to join forces to pursue a united political front come 2023 in the best interest of the Niger Delta and its people.
