Timi Frank, a top member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has appealed to Niger Delta militants to withdraw their quit notice asking northerners in the region to leave.
This is contained in a statement he signed on Friday.
He said the youths should give the peace moves by the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, a chance.
”It was high time we changed our approach to agitation for better standard of living and every other thing expected from the government”, Frank noted.
“I call on Nigerian youths, whether from the South or North to drop whatever differences that are planted or that they are nurturing against each other and come together to build a more united and develop nation.
The APC chieftain said he strongly believes that Osinbajo would address all the grey areas causing different agitations across the country.
“Our region has suffered so much in the past and I will not want a repeat of the neglect we suffered, therefore, we should give peace a chance.
“It is also on record that the present government of APC has done much and continues to show genuine interest to develop our region.
”For example, the Ogoni clean-up, the continuation of the Amnesty Programme and the recent promise by the Acting President to build a Modular Refinery in the region are all good moves we should not allow to bypass the region through violence.”
