A group operating under the auspices of Niger Delta Liberation Force, NDLF has countered and rubbished an open letter addressed to President Mohammadu Buhari not to appoint Chief Dennis Otuaro to occupy the Amnesty office
and in the process attacked the personality of High Chief Oweizide Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo.
The Niger Delta Liberation Force, NDLF, made this known in a counter press statement issued to newsmen in Warri yesterday, signed by Comr. Okunduopagha James, also known as Don Banky, chairman NDLF, Odidi chapter in Delta State, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Liberator Newspaper.
NDLF had described the open letter as a garbage and full of blackmail, stressing that revered High Chief Oweizide Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo is not a partisan politician.
They noted that dragging Tompolo into such political matter is a misplaced priority, adding that he is a man that has unprecedented love to see a peaceful nation and a develop Niger Delta region, stressing that bringing his name into political issues like this is the highest height of disobedience.
While describing self styled Gen. Godday Clement as non existent personage in the Niger Delta region, Don Banky had cautioned media practitioners not to promote such frivolous and baseless claims capable of causing tension in the region.
Against claims by Gen. Clement, the Niger Delta Liberation Force, NDLF, had thrown their weight behind Chief Dennis Otuaro as the right choice for the Amnesty office, adding that Dennis Otuaro is a man of integrity that understands the Niger Delta struggle and its terrain.
They said it is now the turn of Delta State to produce the next Amnesty boss, explaining that Chief Dennis Otuaro have toiled and laboured too much for the Niger Delta struggle, hence it is now time to reap from the fruit of his labour.
NDLF had noted that president Mohammadu will make glowing and fantastic history by appointing Chief Dennis Otuaro, noting that he is a man of impeccable character who understands the pains of the people and issues bedeviling the Niger Delta terrain.
They had called on president Buhari to ignore such calls that are allegedly coming from faceless and politically sponsored attacks, noting that personalities behind the open letter are enemies of progress.
