It said the administration’s non-performance was worsened by the president’s health challenges which allowed a group it classified as the cabal to take advantage of the situation to the detriment of Nigerians.
The agitators said starting from September 12, they would stage a protest in all the Niger Delta states and a shut-down of markets, schools and all other public institutions in the region.
The group also reiterated its quit notice to northerners and Yoruba residents in the region, insisting that the October 1 ultimatum still stands.
Legit.ng had reported that militants under the umbrella of the CNDA denied reports that they have withdrawn a quit notice issued to people of northern and Yoruba descents residing in the Niger Delta region.
The group also threatened to resume attacks on oil installations in the region beginning from September 10, 2017.
CNDA in a statement sent to the Punch newspapers on Saturday, September 02, said it findings had shown that northerners owned over 90% of the oil wells and that the Yoruba have about 7% of the wells.
It stated that while the Igbo have about 2% of oil wells, the Niger Delta people do not have up to 1% of the oil wells.
