Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, has agreed to dialogue with the Buhari led government.
In a statement released by its spokesperson, Brig. Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, the group states its resolve to dialogue with FG.
According to the General Mudoch, “The high command of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) restates that there are no new items to put on the table for dialogue.
“We only want a genuine attitude and conducive atmosphere that will make us commit to any proposed dialogue and lasting peace talk.
“We want the federal government to commit member states of the multinational Oil Corporations to commit independent mediators to this proposed dialogue.
“We believe that such environment will engender genuine dialogue aimed at setting up a framework for achieving the short, medium and long term demands of the Niger delta to de-escalating this conflict and bring about a lasting peace.
“We restate our commitment to attack the interest of Oil Corporation and international refining operators that bring in vessels to the Niger delta territory.
“If they refuse to heed our advice, we will resort to sinking their mother oil lifting vessels.
“They should not undertake any pipeline repairs or any oil and gas facilities until and/or after the proposed dialogue.
“The issues of the Niger delta are as old and as new as the days of Pa. Dappa Biriye, Major Jasper Isaac Adaka Boro, to Ken Saro Wiwa and the government of President Musa Yar’ Adua.
