Four militant groups in the Niger Delta region: the Coalition of Niger Delta Militant Groups yesterday expressed readiness to dialogue with the Federal Government for peace to return to the oil-rich region.

The group took the decision at the end of a meeting attended by the leader of Niger Delta Watchdogs, General John Duku, leader of Niger Delta Volunteers, General Ekpo Ekpo, Leader of Niger Delta Peoples Fighters, Commander Henry Okon Etete and Commander Asukwo Henshaw, spokesperson for Bakassi Freedom Fighters (BFF).

According to the statement released by the group, which reads in part: “No country, region or organisation achieves peace through hostility. Peace is always realised through dialogue.”

The group stated that they had no personal grudges against President Muhammadu Buhari and his government, hence promised to work together with the President to make Nigeria a better place.

They also expressed the belief that their embrace of move would facilitate the healing of the country’s ailing economy. The militants hailed the President for calling for Niger Delta militants to dialogue with the Federal Government during a visit to the Christian Association of Nigeria on the Christmas Day in Abuja.
