Former House of Assembly member from Imo State, Honourable Oparaji Percy Nna, has called for peaceful coexistence in the Niger Delta region.
In a press statement made available to LEADERSHIP today and signed by the former lawmaker, Honourable Oparaji himself, he called on Niger Deltans to sheath their swords and allow peace to take centre stage in the Niger Delta Region.
“I most respectfully and humbly call on the good people in the Niger Delta region of our dear country Nigeria to sheath their swords and allow peace take the centre stage.
“I most pertinently call on the Niger-Deltans to amicably resolve the lingering crises that have plagued the Niger Delta Development Commission (NNDC) in recent time in order to enjoy the dividends of democracy by attaining the maximum benefits at the disposal of the region, ably facilated by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, through his fight against corruption.
“I would like to conclude with the words of John F Kennedy which states that,” “Peace is a daily, weekly, and monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.”
