The Niger Delta ex-militant generals and commanders in Edo State have endorsed the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari for the February 14 election in the country. They queued behind the leadership of Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND).

They insisted that the gesture by MEND should not be taken as a joke as Buhari’s candidacy is in line with the expectation and hope of millions of citizens of the country for positive change and development, particularly, the development of the oil-rich region.

Ex-General, Ogidigba Godstime, made the position of the group known in an interview with newsmen in Benin, the Edo State capital.

He said that the ex-agitators have confidence in the ability of the APC presidential candidate, adding that Buhari is capable of addressing all the salient issues to bring about improved standard of living and due attention to the various communities, states and the South-South region. [myad]
