Impeaching me as a sponsor of the Niger Delta Avenger is an act of hatred and politically motivated. Goodluck Jonathan Fires Back

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has responded, dismissing the statement linking him to the sponsor of the oil region's deadly militant group, 'The Niger Delta Avengers' (NDA). He called it an act of hatred and politically manipulated.

A breakaway group, 'Reformed Niger Delta Avengers' (RNDA), which is said to have recently split from the NDA, had earlier this weekend released a statement claiming that former President Jonathan was the 'grand patron' of the militant group, Niger Delta Avengers.

Goodluck Jonathan, in a brief statement from Zambia, where he will monitor elections next week, dismissed the list released by Cynthia Whyte, an alias for the RNDA spokesperson.

Former President Jonathan said he would make a formal statement soon, but made it clear he was in no way bound by the NDA.

Jonathan said President Muhammadu Buhari had invited me to help bring peace to the oil producing zone; I have not received a formal request from my successor. He, however, said he was aware that Ijaw elder Edwin Clark was working informally to help restore stability to the area.

Former President Jonathan said he did not want to exchange words with 'Cynthia Whyte'. He stated that the names of those listed as alleged sponsors and supporters of the NDA “provided a political agenda for the compilation of the list”.

He claimed that there was absolutely no truth in the claim that he supported the NDA or any other militant group in the Niger Delta or anywhere else.
