Youth group cau­tions NDA, ral­lies for Buhari

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Eyo Charles, Cal­abar

Aso­cio-cul­tural group, Stand Up for Nige­ria (SUN), has ap­pealed to the Niger Delta Avengers not to bomb oil pipelines in the Niger Delta any fur­ther.

They made the ap­peal in Cal­abar yes­ter­day dur­ing a pub­lic rally, prais­ing Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari ‘s ef­forts at fight­ing cor­rup­tion and re­vamp­ing the im­age of the coun­try.

The Co-or­di­na­tor, South-South re­gion of the group, Obande Gideon, told the NDA that their vi­o­lent ac­tions would not help any­one. He added, “Those dis­tract­ing Pres­i­dent Buhari with protests and calls for break-up are en­e­mies of Nige­ria and all wellmean­ing cit­i­zens should call them to or­der. We will re­sist any at­tempt to drag the na­tion to­wards the di­rec­tion of anar­chy. We be­lieve that as we sup­port the gov­ern­ment against cor­rup­tion, the gov­ern­ment will re­cip­ro­cate by re­spect­ing the con­sti­tu­tion of the na­tion.”
