A group under the aegis of Coalition of Niger Deltans for Justice and Development (CONDJUD) has condemned the unwarranted attack and protest against the acting Chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Prof. Nelson Brambaifa, by some ex-militants.
The group said utterances and allegations by certain Niger Deltans, hiding under the cover of ex-militant leaders, were mere fabrication and unfounded lies.
A militant group had called on President Muhammadu Buhari to shelve plans of confirming Brambaifa as substantive Managing Director of the NDDC.
But CONDJUD, in a statement on Friday, and signed by its Secretary General, Christopher Abarowei, urged Buhari to disregard the group’s call.
“It is clear they are purely made up of a few selfish and myopic persons, who could not make the list of thousands of Niger Deltans from across the nine states, which benefitted from the last Water Hyacinth projects. ”
