Niger Delta group asks Yoruba, northerners to disregard quit notice

The Niger Delta People’s Congress (NDPC) has called on Yoruba and northerners to disregard the quit notice by a coalition of agitators and former militants asking them to leave the oil-rich region on or before October 1 this year.

Its convener, Mike Loyibo, in Yenagoa, said the threat was not a true representation of the position of elders, leaders and people of the area, adding that the true stakeholders were committed to an indivisible Nigeria where everyone was free to live and do business.

Loyibo, who also flayed a similar notice handed down by northern youths to Igbo resident in their area, however, called on the National Assembly to, as a matter of urgency, revisit the issue of devolution of power to states.
