The Niger Delta People’s Congress (NDPC) has called on Yoruba and northerners residents in the Niger Delta region to disregard the quit notice by a coalition of agitators and former militants asking them to leave the oil-rich region on or before October 1 this year.
Its convener, Chief Mike Loyibo, said the threat was not a true representation of the position of elders, leaders and people of the area.
According to him, the true stakeholders were committed to an indivisible Nigeria where everyone was free to live and do business.
He said: “Despite years of oppression, our region has remained resolute and committed to one Nigeria where justice, equity and peace reign. “The quit notice should be disregarded and all Nigerians should feel free in the Niger Delta region.’’
Loyibo, who also flayed a similar notice handed down by northern youths to Igbos resident in the area, however, called on the National Assembly to, as a matter of urgency, revisit the issue of devolution of power to states.
