National Coordinator of the Coalition of Niger Delta Voices, CNDV, Barr. Frank Ekpemupolo has warned against any plot from the presidency to replace the current Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC boss, Prof Nelson Brambaifa and the Coordinator, presidential amnesty programme and special adviser to the President on Niger Delta affairs, Prof. Charles Q. Dokubo.
The national Coordinator issued the warning yesterday via a press statement made available to newsmen in Warri, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspaper while reacting to state of the Niger Delta.
Barr. Ekpemupolo had particularly expressed confidence on the leadership of Prof. Dokubo and Prof. Nelson in handling the various offices, adding that the duo are men of capacity.
According to him, there are insinuations making round in Abuja that people within the presidency have started making moves to replace the aforementioned Niger Deltans by holding series of meetings to replace them.
Barr. Frank had declared that any attempt to do such will be resisted by all means necessary, adding that Dokubo and Brambaifa are doing well in their various offices even if they where to be changed it ought to be the decision of Niger Deltans.
He had continued that strangers to the Niger Delta struggle must never be brought to lead any of the aforementioned institutions, rather if Dokubo and Brambaifa were to be changed, it has to be other Ijaws that will be replacing them.
