April polls: INC dissociates self fromMENDs threat

Published by Tribune on Fri, 25 Mar 2011


President Goodluck Jonathans kins-men under the auspices of Ijaw National Congress (INC), on Thursday, dissociated themselves from the threat by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) to disrupt the April polls.MEND recently cautioned the public about political gatherings, alleging governments insensitivity to the plight of Niger Deltans and what it perceives as the unwillingness of the government of President  Jonathan to prosecute a workable, durable plan of action to address the situation.While addressing journalists in Abuja, the acting president of INC, Chief Ebiakpo Benamaisia, stated that, the issue of MEND has gone to rest after the amnesty programme  adding that the security agencies should take on any group parading as MEND.Insisting that, amnesty has overtaken agitations by MEND, the INC acting president disclosed that his group had already reached out to other ethnic groups including Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Afenifere and Ohaneze NdIgbo on the need to support President Jonathan to win the presidential election next month.He said that the ethnic nationalities in turn have endorsed the candidature of Jonathan, noting that INC would embark on a thank-you tour of the zones immediately after the election.Chief Benamaisia maintained that the INC could not be mistaken for its choice of Jonathan for the president in next months presidential election.He observed that,Many take Jonathans gentle and quiet  nature for weakness. But they have been grossly disappointed by the strength and resolve they watched the president wield from close encounters when he needed to act, not involving himself in everyday political gossips but engaging in constructive pursuits, not delivering slogans but ideas that have created opportunities for many, giving a meaning to little beginnings.
