Former President Jonathan Says He Is In Touch With Niger Delta Militants..

Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has disclosed that he was in touch with the Niger Delta militants to ensure that there is peace in the oil rich region.
He made this disclosure on Wednesday when he visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential villa, Abuja.




Recall that the militant group had few days ago stated that it backed out of its plan to declare Niger Delta Republic following the intervention of Jonathan and other leaders from the community.


Addressing State House Correspondents shortly after the meeting which lasted for 20 minutes, Jonathan said it was appropriate for him and traditional rulers in the area to mediate in the matter.

According to him, “It’s not just about me but about all the traditional rulers, elders and opinion leaders that are of the Ijaw ethnic nationality. We have been in touch to see that peace reigns in the country. Those of you that have followed my talks when I was here, my emphasis is that we need a United Nigeria and I always emphasize that Nigeria is great not just about the oil.


“So many countries produce more oil than Nigeria nobody notices them. We are great because of our size, the human resources we have, the diversity we have, if we fragmentize the country into small components, we will be forgotten by the World.
“That has been my focal position and without peace there cannot be development anywhere in the world. We are all working collectively to see that issues are resolved.”

Speaking on his mission to the Villa, he said he was there to brief President Buhari on his emergence as the leader of African Union, AU elections monitoring team to Zambia.

“You asked why I came to see the President today, one key thing is that having been a head of a government, a former president you become a state property. That’s the privilege you have but every privilege has its corresponding responsibility, and once you become a state property, most of your international engagement, that has to do with public addresses and some international assignment becomes a national assignment, you brief the President.

“Even when I was here the former presidents used to do that and see me. I have been coming. Most times, I come in the night that’s why you don’t see me. I came to brief the President about some of my engagements. As you are aware, I will be leading the AU elections monitoring team to Zambia.

 I came to brief the President about some of these external engagements. It is the tradition”, he said.
“I don’t want to talk about that one because there are too many cases that are in court. It will not be fair to make comments. I will talk at the appropriate time when most of these things are resolved”, he said.

May God continue to bless Goodluck Jonathan!...this is a man that has the interest of Nigeria at heart...
This is something Vuharia did not do during his time as the president when boko haram was frustrating him instead he said that a war against boko haram is a war against the north...
Vuharia Nigerians wished you what you wished Jonathan during his time and this is just the begining...

Since he knows them and their agenda to ground the economy so that the president will not perform so he knows when to tell them to hold on or who are those sponsoring them if not him and his likes.

My dear, do everything to prevent the devastations the Niger Delta Militant are causing in the area.

Your hero and his fellow drunks sat by with their crooked arms akimbo and watched those animals destroy oil installations before mediating.
He deserves a national award.

So whose environment is be degraded, do you know what it will take to clean the mess. Keep praising them, just know this Buhari will succeed in governing the nation.

The difference between a true statesman and others. He interceded. Something Buhari refused to do even when BH wanted to dialogue and named him as mediator.

Now we see, Sir. Sorry for rubbishing you all those times. Truly, you have the interest of this country at heart. Truly.
