We’ll join Tompolo to crumble Nigeria’s economy—NDVGG


 


A group known as Niger Delta Volunteers for Good Governance has vowed to join forces with ex-militant leader in the oil-rich region, Government Ekpemupolo, aka Tompolo, to crumble the nation’s economy should the government fail to accede to the demand of the region.


Tompolo, it would be recalled, had last Sunday, issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to inaugurate a substantive Board for the NDDC, vowing that failure to do so, would lead to the nation’s economy, particularly in the Niger Delta, being crumbled.


President of NDVGG, Ben Bowei, aka, Lord Mayor 1 of Niger Delta, who disclosed this in Benin on Wednesday, said after exhausting all the available avenues for consultations, the group had no option but to join forces with other groups, particularly the well respected ex-militant leader, in demanding for justice.

“We have come to the conclusion that after the seven-day ultimatum given to the Federal Government by our well-respected leader, High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, aka Tompolo, elapses, we are going to crumble all economic activities particularly oil exploration in the entire Niger Delta region.


“We have vowed to shut down all facilities which will crumble the economy of the nation unless the Federal Government does the needful by correcting the injustice meted on the people of the Niger Delta.


“We are demanding that a substantive board for the NDDC be inaugurated immediately else, the government will see our other side. We are not joking. Immediately after the seven-day ultimatum elapses, we are going to strike,” he stressed.
