The NDRC and the 21st century youths of the Niger Delta are very proud of our future leaders that converged in port Harcourt under the name; Niger Delta Young Leaders Stakeholders round-table meeting of 5th July 2017. The NDRC and the 21st century youths support the stance of the Niger Delta
young leaders’ stakeholders’ round-table resolution which states the control of our resources and fiscal federalism if we are to be part of the federation called Nigeria.
We honestly advise our eminent royal fathers and distinguished personalities of the PANDEF to stop all engagements on behalf of the people and resources of the Niger Delta, though we appreciate their sacrifice and service over the years, it has not been able to unshackle our people from the chain of slavery. The sacrifice of Chief E.K. Clark at 90 is still active, HRM Alfred Diete Spiff, His Excellency Victor Attah and all distinguished personalities of the PANDEF.
But we want to state that slave masters do not and would never understand the language of platitude, also being that they have been in the struggle for so long we suspect collusion between them and the slave masters to further their personal interest.
Therefore, the 21st century youths of the Niger Delta does not have confidence in their advocacy. We therefore advise them to step down so that we can take our future and that of our children in our hands. We the NDRC and the 21st century youths of the Niger Delta equivocally state that there is nothing we would not give to unshackle our people from the chain of slavery.
We would fight until the last drop of our blood, until justice and equity is enthroned in our land because we cannot afford to bequeath this type of society to our children. Peace without justice is not the same as justice before peace. We would not allow anybody to bequeath peace of the grave yard on us.
