A security consultant, Jackson Ojo, during an interview in Abuja said Nigeria will find it difficult to manage recommenced malice in the Niger Delta region due to the unsteady economic and insecurity the country is facing.
The All Progressives Congress chieftain said this in reaction to the Niger Delta avengers’ threats if the NDDC is allow to defend its 2021 budget before the National Assembly
Ojo, who is also a certified member of the International Security Association of Switzerland, expressed his disappointment that their associates has cheated the Niger Delta people of the benefits despite the billions of Naira being released for various forms of intervention in the Niger Delta.
He urged that the agitators’ threat should be taken desperately and attempts should be made to sort out any issues to avoid a breakdown of law and order.
Ojo said, “If the people listened to them and there is no budget for year 2021 that will be 24 months of no budget in Niger Delta and at the end of the day if the people of that place start agitating; we will have a problem in our hands.
“Two days of the Avengers coming out in the Niger Delta, Nigeria will feel it more than two months of what we see in Lagos recently during the #EndSARS protests.
“We all know that NDDC was created some years back although it sprung up from OMPADEC. It is just because of the agitation of the people of Niger Delta to give an upliftment to the development of the Niger Delta region being the region in Nigeria that produces the oil that forms almost 80 per cent of our revenue.
“But when you look at the region today, it is nothing to write home about.”
