The National Chairman of PANDEF, Air Commodore Idongesit Nkang revealed this recently in Uyo.
According to him, FG saying they will not succumb to threats and undue pressure to restructure Nigeria is very misleading, as it is not a threat, but just a piece of advice.
He added that democracy allows everyone to speak their mind and the truth, so Nigerians will not be forced into dictatorship.
His words, “Our reaction to that statement is very straight forward. To start with PANDEF doesn’t threaten, we speak the truth. And we will never stop talking, and asking for restructuring because to ask us to do that is like saying we should abandon our liberty. The moment you abandon asking for justice and liberty, then you are not fit to live.
”So we will continue to advocate for restructuring. If you like to hear it, fine, and if you don’t like to hear it, it is up to you. We believe whoever said this administration will not tolerate those advocating for restructuring is ignorant of what restructuring is all about and he doesn’t understand what democracy is all about.
“If something is not going right what you do is to adjust it. Today we are seriously marginalized in the Niger Delta and they don’t want us to talk about restructuring? God forbid!, we will talk about it.
“If you can remember, we (PANDEF) have said before that if you don’t restructure Nigeria, Nigeria will restructure itself, we cannot go back on what we said because that is the truth. There are other people, groups that are saying the country could break up if it is not restructured. They are just advising. It is no threat.”
“In a democracy, the Rule of Law is prime. And a leader is as strong as his followers. If all the followers are saying. Let the people who don’t agree on restructuring come out and say they don’t agree and not for you to sit down somewhere and say that Nigerians don’t agree. It is as simple as that”
