Environmental Degradation-the flag-off of the clean-up of Ogoni land

Nigerian President, President Buhari delegated Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to the landmark flag-off of the clean-up of Ogoni land on Thursday.
Federal Government launched the clean up exercise aimed at clearing oil spill in Ogoni land in Niger Delta.

Now for delegating the VP, Ekiti state governor Ayodele Fayose, has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari cancelled his trip to the oil-rich Ogoni land in Rivers state, as a result of the assassination threat from the Niger Delta Avengers.

As alleged, a militant had told one of the hosts of UK-based Radio Biafra that Buhari “should sign his death warrant” before his visit to Ogoni, and the president ended up delegating Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to the landmark flag-off of the clean-up of Ogoni.

Reacting to this, Fayose advocates that Nigerians should seek help elsewhere, because Buhari had “surrendered to the superior powers of the militants”.

In his word, “It is shameful and embarrassing that a retired military general could succumb to threat from militants despite what he told Nigerians that he was going to lead from the fronts,”

Below is the statement issued on his behalf by Lere Olayinka, his special assistant on public communications and new media.

“By not going to Ogoni today, because of threat from the NDA, our president has shown that he is actually afraid of the militants and the best thing to do in a situation like this is to dialogue with the militants so as to save Nigerian economy from imminent collapse.
“It also shows that the president’s ability to secure Nigeria and its people is doubtful, because if the president could succumb to threat from militants and abandon his official function for his deputy, ordinary Nigerians should seek help elsewhere.
“The president should therefore save Nigeria the agony of military misadventure in the Niger Delta by holding dialogue with the militants with a view to resolving their grievances. He should emulate late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua by having a roundtable talks with the Niger Delta militants.”

Buhari always come under attack by Fayose, No president is a coward cos he is like the whole country is him any thing done against him will cause unrest for everybody including the Niger Delta Avengers so that is not the reason, to me he is not a Hausa/Fulani man who would not do anything that will favour the south's as they see them as infidel for not been Muslims, period!
