Urhobo youths have threatened to storm the Aso rock Villa if President Muhammadu Buhari fails to inaugurate the Niger Delta Development Commission Board within the twenty-one-day ultimatum given it by the Youths Leaders’
Recall that the NDDC board has been screened and approved by the Nigerian Senate
Leader of the youths, Comrade Bezi Ighotegwolor made the assertion in a chat with newsmen during a peaceful protest organized by the UYLC along the Agbarho section of the East-West road in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.
He said the “Sole Administratorship” that is tinkered with the NDDC Board is wrong.”
“It is the wrong move. It is an aberration. They should correct it. They should inaugurate the NDDC that has been screened and approved by the Senate.”
He warned that if his call and those of the UYLC are not met, the youths will have no option than to occupy the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja, the Capital of Nigeria in the next few days
Ighotegwolor who is also a staunch member of the All Progressives Congress, APC enjoined the youths to continue their protests in a peaceful manner without resorting to violence but to seek redress in Court if their voices are not heard.
He cautioned that their peaceful dispositions should not be taken for granted by the President and his federal government.
