Waffi Tv: Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators (CNDA), the umbrella assemblage of militant groups in the Niger Delta, has pledged to resist any endeavor to foist President Muhammadu Buhari on Nigerians.
It also announced that the people of the locale won’t support Buhari’s re-appointment bid.
The militant groups cautioned that the 2019 general election would be bloody should anyone or security agents endeavor to rig the polls in the Niger Delta locale.
The coalition, CNDA , comprises Niger Delta Avengers, Niger Delta Volunteers, Bakassi Strike Force and Niger Delta Warriors. Others are Niger Delta Peoples Fighters, Bakassi Freedom Fighters, Niger Delta Movement for Justice and Niger Delta Fighters Network.
The Convener of the coalition group, John Duku, in a statement yesterday, said the militant groups in the area have culminated plans to send their men in surveying units across the South-South geopolitical zones.
“We have sensitized our members and affiliates on how and who to vote, come February 16, 2019. I also want to assure you that our men would be on the ground in all the polling units across the Niger Delta region.
“If we notice any attempt to rig election by anyone, including the security agents, it shall be bloody. Let people vote (according to) their conscience and let the vote of the people count.
He stated unequivocally that President Buhari would not win the upcoming elections if it is free and fair
“We want to assure you that President Buhari will not return in 2019 except INEC compromises election results. Buhari has neglected the Niger Delta people to the extent that we would have reacted in a very negative way if not for our elders and leaders who continuously calmed us down.
He advised that the incumbent President should emulate the most recent Ex President Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in graciously accepting defeat and bow out when the time comes
“Our brother, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, accepted defeat and handed over to Buhari; I implore Buhari to toe the path of honour and do same.”
