N-Delta group urges Jonathan to revoke Northerners’ oil blocs

Oil & gas rig12 June 2014, Lagos – The Niger Delta People Solidarity Movement, NDPSM, has given President Goodluck Jonathan a 21-day ultimatum to revoke all oil bloc licences held by Northerners, suspected to be financially supporting Boko Haram insurgent in the country.

NDPSM said that 95 percent of the country’s wealth was generated from the Niger Delta region, adding that it was wrong for those making their wealth from the area to use the proceeds to fight people from the region.

The group in a statement, said: “This is the first time the region is producing a president. Enough is enough of this insurgency against the people of the Niger Delta. We have been studying the situation and we call on Mr. President to call a spade a spade or we will decide the next line of action.”
