With the rise of a new oil terrorist group
Niger-Delta Avengers, the Federal Government is stuck on how to tackle the problem of oil terrorism. To fight the group would worsen the volatile state of the nation. To negotiate and accept to their demands will make the Federal Government weak in the area of anti-terrorism campaign.
The delicate nature of handling the Niger Delta Avengers is the perfect opportunity for Duncan Mighty to prove he is truly a statesman. Already the hit singer has reached out and met the group.
On June 22, 2016 Duncan Mighty
announced that he had a successful meeting » with the Niger Delta Avengers. He shared a photo of him with Nigerian soldiers on his Instagram page and captioned it “ With MA Squaddie. Proud of my Job.. Successful meeting with the NIGER DELTA AVENGERS . It is only peace that can bring about sustainable development in our region #nigerdeltayouthpresident #southsouthbrandambassador #legendary #duncanmighty #duncanmightyourpride.”
Duncan Mighty who is presently the Niger Delta Youth/Brand ambassador has proven that he is all about action and not words. While a lot of celebrities from the Niger-Delta are hardly saying anything about the situation Duncan Mighty is using his star status to try and effect change.
The talented singer should not only be applauded for his efforts he should be recognized in an official capacity as the liaison between the Federal Government and the Niger-Delta government. In the South-South there is a high level of distrust the indigenes have for the Federal Government. Using a familiar face would help iron out the wrinkles in the relationship between the government and the militants.
As Duncan Mighty continues his patriotic efforts of achieving peace in the region, he should convince his counterparts also to try and do something for the region and Nigeria.
Lastly, Duncan Mighty has proven that he is a man of his word. He should be encouraged by all means to continue his peace making effort.
