Update on dialogue between Niger Delta Avengers and Nigerian Government

The Niger Delta Avengers, have agreed to dialogue with the Federal
Government. A statement issued today by its spokesman, Brig. Gen
Mudoch Agbinibo called on its members to ceasefire pending the outcome
of the dialogue with the federal government. The statement reads in
full:
"The high command of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) is using this
medium to restate that there are no new items to put on the table for
dialogue, we only want a genuine attitude and conducive atmosphere
that will make us commit to any proposed dialogue and last peace talk.
We want the federal government to commit members states of the multi
national Oil Corporations to commit independent mediators to this
proposed dialogue; we believed that it is only such environment that
will engender genuine dialogue that will be aimed at setting up a
framework for achieving the short, medium and long term demands of the
Niger delta to de-escalating this conflict and bring about a lasting
peace.
"The NDA high command is restating our commitment to attack the
interest of oil corporation and international refineries operators
that bring in vessels to the Niger delta territory to buy our oil that
every successive government have refused to used and reapply the
proceeds towards any development in the region since 1958. If they
refuse be heed to our advice will result to sinking of two their
mother vessel as an examples to others They should not undertake any
repair of pipeline, oil and gas facilities that is damaged or attacked
by our forces during this period of "Operation Red Economy" until
and/or after the dialogue.
"We are using this medium to warn and condemn the activities of all
brands of social media agitators being peddled around by some
politicians to promote their criminal ways in affairs of the Niger
Delta. This genuine spirit behind our struggle for the Niger Delta
cannot be derailed on the basis of connivance by politician,
traditional rulers, settled ex- agitators and criminals moving around
to fill their pockets.
"The issues of the Niger delta are as old and as new as the days of
Pa. Dappa Biriye, Major Jasper Isaac Adaka Boro, to Ken Saro Wiwa and
the government of President Musa Yar' Adua. We are warning this
government of President muhammadu Buhari, not to turn the essence of
genuine peace talk and dialogue to political jamboree that is
prevailing now where all manner of social media agitators and
criminals have being sponsored by the job seeking corrupt political
class to safe faces before the government of the day.
"Finally, if need be, we may review our earlier stance of not taking
lives. We are going to redirect and reactivate all our activities if
the government, oil companies and their services firms don't heed to
these modest warnings of not carrying out any repairs works and
suspend the buying of crude oil from our region as we await the right
atmosphere that will engender genuine dialogue
"We Want a peace with honour not a peace of our time."
