We're not negotiating with the Niger Delta Militants yet because they're confused

NNPC has declared that Niger Delta militants are confused and disorganised at the moment. This was as indications emerged that government is yet to commence negotiation with the various militant groups over their inability to organise themselves.

Group General Manager, Public Affairs Division, NNPC, Mr. Mohammed Garba-Deen, ‎explained that the confusion had made government officials more cautious, stressing that the government was taking its time not to negotiate with the wrong group.



According to Garba-Deen, “There is no confusion on the part of the Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources. If anybody is confused, it is the militants that are confused because they are disorganised. They have refused to organise themselves into one, instead they have NDA, MEND and many others.

“So under this circumstance, the petroleum ministry is taking its time so that it does not negotiate with the wrong people. And that is not confusion. That is caution. The situation is causing concern and not confusion on our side, because we will like a situation where a credible and authentic group emerges.

“And whichever group emerges, it should have all the backing of those making agitations in the Niger Delta. So it is therefore important to state that we are not confused but cautious, because from all indications, the confusion is on the part of the militants from the region.”
