Lagos –  A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rotimi  Fashakin has urged  President Muhammadu Buhari to go after those who threatened to make the country ungovernable should former president, Goodluck  Jonathan lose the 2015 presidential election.

Fashakin, who spoke in an interview with Independent, said those who made the threats are behind the renewed militancy in the Niger Delta region.

The former National Publicity Secretary of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change (CPC) said it is time for  President Buhari to take decisive action in order to prove that  no section of the country can hold the entire nation to ransom.

“I still don’t understand why this government has not gone after those who threatened fire and brimstone during the last general election; that should former president Jonathan lose the presidential election, they will make the entire country ungovernable and set up all manner of militancy against the new government. I wonder why this government is not going after them.

“What we are seeing now is directly proportional to the fact that we have had a change in government. These pretenders cannot claim that the degradation in the Niger Delta started under this current government. As a matter of fact, it is President Buhari who has taken the bull by the horn for the first time in over 30 years by starting the cleanup of Ogoniland, something that a president of Ijaw extraction did not lift even a finger to do.”

“What we have seen playing out with these various types of bombing of oil installations in the name of Niger Delta Avengers is because the huge mess of stealing that prevalent under the previous government has  now been stopped”.

“That is why they are trying to make the country ungovernable. I believe it is time for Mr. President to take a decisive action and show clearly that Nigeria belongs to all of us. No section of the country can hold the whole nation to ransom” he said.

    Why can’t he advice the government to show the avengers he can do without crude oil. Tell the government to show their ingenuity by devising another means to develop the nation. What of if oil dries up. Too much of lazy brains in this country
