"We shall complement and supplement every move of the Niger Delta Avengers to ensure that our freedom from this Zoo is realized. We shall not spare any infrastructure that adds value to the activities of the Buhari led Federal Government.
"We in the Niger Delta Volunteers are not surprised at the current shenanigans of the Federal Government through the office of the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the Minister of Transport, Chibuike Amaechi.
"It is now obvious that the Federal Government of Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari has converted the commitment to peace and dialogue by the Elders, Royal fathers and Chiefs under the auspices of Chief Edwin Clark, and King Alfred Diete Spiff the Amayanabo town Brass to a circus.
"In one breath, the Presidency is issuing statement on a committee meeting under S.A. on Political Affairs in the Vice President’s office and in another, the Minister of Transport, Chibuike Amaechi, convening a meeting in Transcorp. Where does this circus place Ibe Kachikwu’s effort at bringing out notable Elders to commit themselves.
"No wonder the Spokesperson of our big brother, the Avengers, General Muduch Agbinibo refers it to, “a shameful scene in Nollywood acts.”"
