The Niger Delta Militants has promised to drop every weapon in their position if the All Progressive Congress (APC) fields the Governor of the central bank of Nigeria (CBN) Godwin Emefiele in 2023.

The Niger Delta Avengers made the promise in a recently released video posted on social media.

The group leader General Jack Fibor said that the group took the decision because Emefiele has used his office to eradicate poverty, activated so many programs including agriculture and he is not a politician.

Fibor pledged that if Emefiele is elected as president, the group is ready to surrender their arms and stop illegal bunkering in the Niger Delta region.

Meanwhile on Friday  May 4, 2022, report reaching us that Governor Godwin Emefiele, has reportedly paid the sum of N100 million for the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential nomination and expression of interest form.
