The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) views the President, Goodluck Jonathan’s recent campaign rally speech as the most outrageous and ridiculous speech by any President, were he openly accused Mr Henry Okah of being “paid to assassinate” him.
Mr President, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) say thank you for vindicating every word in our recent statement of endorsement of General Muhammadu Buhari and for also solidifying your status as a clueless, inept and bare face lair.
The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) would like to state it clearly that our endorsement of the All Progressive Congress ( APC ) Presidential candidate, has absolutely nothing to do with Mr Henry Okah.
We challenge Mr President, Goodluck Jonathan to come out and reveal to the nation, the names of the “persons” he claims paid Mr Henry Okah to “assassinate” him. Goodluck Jonathan should also explain why these “persons”, as he obviously knows who they are, were not arrested, tried and convicted.
Nigerians may recall that prior to the bomb blast of October 1, 2010 ; the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) issued a warning of an impending attack in Eagle Square , Abuja , were we also advised the public to stay clear of any parked vehicles to avert any casualties. These warnings were ignored by the Nigerian Security agencies, hence the unfortunate and regrettable casualties.
If as Goodluck Jonathan claimed, that he was a target of an “assassination” attempt, why did we issue a prior warning? Where in this world would an assassin warn their target in advance of an attempt on their life? This false allegation by Goodluck Jonathan, further confirms our earlier assertion of how he takes Nigerians for stupid as he seem to have forgotten how he openly came out to absolve MEND of any involvement in the attack. Rather than address his administrations failures, he chose to descend so low by using a very cheap bare faced lie to get sympathy. Is this the kind of President the country wants to be stuck with for another four years of misery?
On the National Dialogue report, Goodluck Jonathan has finally resorted to cheap blackmail by urging the nation to vote for him as a condition to implementing the report. What a blatant insult! Despite all the Billions of Naira spent on that jamboree?
At this point, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) urges the nation to use the power of their vote in securing this great country back from the claws of Goodluck Jonathan’s corrupt and inept government and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
For our Freedom and Yours
