Following the renewed threats by Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to resume hostilities in the Niger Delta, the Chairman,
Governing Board of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba (SAN), has appealed to the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to embrace peace.
In a statement by Mrs Clara Braide, his Special Assistant (SA), Communications, Ndoma-Egba stressed the need for the NDA to reconsider its threat to renew hostilities and bomb oil installations.
The NDDC Chairman implored them to sheathe their swords and allow government to roll out its plans for the region.  He advised that violence is not the best option, stressing that the region is already overstretched as a result of incessant self-inflicted damages.
Ndoma-Egba called for their support and cooperation towards finding lasting solutions to the problems of the Niger Delta, adding that dialogue should be maintained with the Federal Government to secure peace and sustainable development.

He said: “Our environment is already polluted and is in dire straits, we are urgently in need of restoration. Destroying oil pipelines and installations would worsen our already badly polluted environment and expose our people to sickness and untold hardship.  It would aggravate our already bad situation and expose innocent children, women, and youths to grave danger.

“We appeal to NDA to please give peace a chance and allow the Government and Stakeholders find lasting solutions to the problems confronting our Region.  At the end of the day, our Region would be better developed and prosperous if we cooperate with NDDC and other stakeholders in our efforts to finding a peaceful and permanent resolution to our problems as the Commission has put in place, strategic intervention plans that should transform the Region.
