A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chief PrerekemeKpodoh has disclosed that under former President Goodluck Jonathan the Niger Delta region lost hope of good governance and development, because the aides from the region turned him to a ‘confused President’ podoh who was also the former security adviser to the Bayelsa State government, in a statement yesterday also slammed those defending the former President, saying nobody should stay in Abuja or outside the region to put up defence against those criticising the former president for the alleged fraud.
According to him, ’’Under our brother, we lost hope because aides from our region turned him to confused President. Look at President Muhammadu Buhari, he is not from the Niger Delta but the region has started witnessing a change. ‘’Modular refineries were approved for illegal refinery operators.
With Diezani, who is from Niger Deltan, the region faced crisis without a clear cut policy to empower the region.
“Nobody should stay in Abuja and outside the region to put up defence against those castigating Jonathan years of fraud. Nobody is a fool and we know what we are doing. If a leader fails, the Niger Delta people have the right to tackle him.
“We know what we are saying. We had expected that with a President from the region, all our expectation would have been met. But what we witnessed during Jonathan’s six years was wasteful years of corruption and antidevelopment tendencies.”
