The leadership of Niger Delta Liberation Force (NDLF) has endorsed the appointment of Mr. Tikari T.Y Danjuma as coordinator Niger Delta Riverine protection programme by President Muhammadu Buhari to help stem the wave of sea crime and violence in the region.
We thank Mr. President for choosing another worthy son from Niger Delta at federal level. The appointment is a welcome development to the region. It is like fixing a round peg in round hole, following the sterling outstanding qualities of the appointee who is a pragmatic youth leader, a philanthropist and successful businessman that had engaged in various youths empowerment/engagement across the Niger Delta region over the years.
Mr. Tikare Danjuma has the support of all Niger Delta people, especially ex-militants and militants who are fighting in the creek now for the development of the region.
We want to assure Mr. President to enjoin hands with Mr. Tikari and other relevant security agents to ensure maximum security/protection of lives and oil facilities in the Niger Delta.
We equally appeal for the cooperation of everybody in Niger Deltan, especially aggrieved militants to sheathe their swords to key into the window of opportunity created by Mr. President for the proposed Niger Delta dialogue with leaders of the region for lasting peace and infrastructural development.
That the appointment of Tikari will help bring in the needed attention, peace and development in Niger Delta just like other interventionist agencies in the region.
