A coalition of Niger Delta activists under the aegis of Vanguards of Nigeria’s Democracy today said it has uncovered clandestine moves by President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to probe the administration of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and send him to prison on trumped-up charges.
A statement issued by the spokesperson of VND, Mr. Osaghae Ogiemudia, in Abuja said recent events in the country have revealed that the Buhari’s regime was out to deal with the Niger Delta people, especially the Ijaw ethnic group.
The coalition therefore advised the Ijaws to support the re-election of their “only son and only Ijaw governor, Henry Seriake Dickson, in the forthcoming elections in Bayelsa State and resist all moves by APC to take over power through the back door. Ijaw people defecting to APC from PDP are all traitors.”
According to VND, the plot to imprison Jonathan has been perfected with the ongoing controversy over Excess Crude Account and the allegation levelled against the immediate past Minister of Finance/Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Dr. (Mrs) Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala by Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole.
Ogiemudia said: “The whole plan has been perfected and we know the direction of all the noise by Oshiomhole. We know their target and that is Jonathan. We, the members of the Vanguard of Nigeria’s Democracy are aware of some clandestine moves made by the APC led government to probe, investigate, malign and imprison ex President Jonathan. We are already aware of the trumped-up charges the APC government is leveling against a man who has diligently served the Nigerian State at the highest level of government.”
