UNDEDSS Accuses Bola Tinubu Of Raising False Allegations Against President Jonathan

Must read

The United Niger Delta Energy Development Security Strategy, UNDEDSS, has accused former governor of Lagos State and the leader of the All Progressive Congress, APC Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, raising false allegations and unfounded premise to ethicize the issue of oil theft, by pointing fingers at President Goodluck Jonathan for allegedly stealing of over 400,000 barrels of crude oil every day in Nigeria.

UNDEDSS, which is led by renowned Nigerian economist Pat Utomi, is a coalition of ethnic nationalities and progressives in the Niger Delta, with the aim of solidifying a formidable united front in the interest of the region and unity of Nigeria by extension.

The group had said in a statement released on Monday, January 19, 2015 that the baseless accusations of the All progressive Party leader over oil theft should be cautioned in the interest of the credibility that the party claimed to possess and stop the perennial ethnic profiling of the region’s people, for reasons of “cheap political ambition.”

Speaking further on the issue, the secretary-general of the group, Mr Tony Uranta, stated: “Tinubu persists in his dastardly attempt to demonise the Niger Delta and its people.

“UNDEDSS may be compelled to immediately place him on the active no-vist list that restricts enemies of the Niger Delta and its otherwise-hospitable people from setting foot within our regional space with impunity,” he stated.
