“Let them comprehend that the reprieve program can possibly stop when they prevent boring oil from this area; the day we quit taking care of this nation. We were not informed that the program has expiry date, so it can’t be rejected. In this way I prompt that they should leave well enough alone.

“The national government ought to comprehend that those encouraging it to scrap the program don’t care for the current harmony in the Niger Delta locale, they don’t have good intentions for Nigeria.

“I am not expressing these things since I am a recipient of the program. Yet, as a pioneer of ex-fomenters in Akwa Ibom, I am stating that on the off chance that they scrap the program what they are just asking them is to return to militancy or the brooks. What’s more, you can envision what the results will be.
