Following referendum that determined United Kingdom cessation from the European Union, Militants in the Niger Delta region, Nigeria on Saturday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to allow Nigerians determine if they want to remain a sovereign nation or otherwise.
The militants said it was wrong for the President to insist on his will rather allow the people he rules over to determine their future.
Condemning the high rate of land and water degradation in the region, they challenged Buhari to visit the region and see the damage oil companies are causing their host communities.
In a statement issued by its spokesman, Brig. Gen Moduch Agbinibo, stated that the President should, “borrow a leaf from PM David Cameron, call for a referendum and let Nigerians decides like they did to vote you into Power.”
“The Nigeria President Buhari should visit Ugborodo host to Chevron crude oil Export terminal/EGTL gas plant, Ogulagha host to Shell Forcados Crude Oil Export terminal/tank farm, Bonny Island host to Shell Bonny Crude Oil Export terminal/NLNG gas terminal, Brass host to Agip/ENI export terminal, Ibeno host to ExxonMobil Qua Iboe crude export terminal.
“These are just the export terminals not talking about the numerous oil and gas flow stations and the oil Wells that criss cross the length and breadth of the Niger delta.
“Mr. President come and see for yourself what the host communities are going through in the hands of Nigeria government and the multinationals,” the militant group said
