Militants want Buhari to sack Ministers for Niger Delta

Ex-Militants (1)
A Militant group, the Action Crocodile Group of Niger Delta (ACGND), the Ondo State chapter, on Friday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack his Minister for Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Uguru Useni and his counterpart for state, Prof. Claudius Daramola.
The militants formed under the auspices of the Niger Delta Avengers are accusing the two ministers of being ineffective in bringing peace to the Niger Delta region.
ACGND, who is under the leadership of General, Kaka Dudu, particularly blamed Daramola, who is from their state of not doing enough for the region.

Dudu, in a statement issued and signed said Daramola had not for once made an attempt to reach out to militants from his state.
The militants noted that they may not have attacked pipelines in their state, but are always part of operations in other states.
The group threatened that the attitude of the ministers may force them to strike in Ondo state.
The group said the ministers were frustrating the good gesture of President Muhammadu Buhari to returning peace and development to the region.
It alleged that, ” the federal government has disbursed some money for capital projects in the region and the ministry that had done their advertorial on it has not issued a single letter of contract in respect of the projects.
“Our findings indicated that there are internal wrangling within the ministry due to contract racketeering.”
