Our Grouse With NDDC MD, Amnesty Boss-Ex-Militants

Re-elected president of the body of former Niger Delta militants, the Leadership, Peace and Cultural Development Initiative, Pastor Reuben Wilson, on Saturday presided over a meeting of the former militant leaders in Warri, Delta State, where some crucial issues affecting them were discussed. After the meeting, he spoke with EDITH CHUKU, in this interview, urging the heads of the NDDC and the presidential amnesty programme to sit up or face public protests by the repentant freedom fighters.

 Excerpts:

 What was the inspiration behind the formation of this group?

All of us were in the creeks, you know. We fought for the betterment of Niger Delta before accepting amnesty in 2019. So after accepting amnesty, we found out that there is a need for us to come together and form a group through which we can move and get what we want in Niger Delta. We don’t want to walk on separate ways, that’s why we formed this group. So we will have one voice, if we want to say oh, Mr. president or federal government, we need this road in one of the states in Niger Delta, that collective voice will make it come to pass. So, our voice will stand as people that are united in the Niger Delta region and since we formed this group, we have been moving together, we have been doing a lot of things to make sure we achieve all the needed things in the Niger Delta, even if the challenges we are facing are still there. But we hope that one day, it will come to pass. We will not rest, we will keep on talking, we will keep on moving.
