The National Coalition of Niger Delta Ex-Agitators (NCNDE-A) has said it will back the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in the 2019 election.
The Eshanekpe Israel a.k.a Akpodoro-led Coalition spoke at the weekend.
According to the former pro-President Muhammadu Buhari group, the Coalition took the decision after a meeting in Ughelli, Delta State.
The coalition noted at the meeting held to consult with critical stakeholders in Niger Delta that it will “roll on” with Atiku, who is the “flying star” that can dislodge Buhari from power.
It said it had adopted its operational identity: National Coalition of Niger Delta Ex-militants and Youth for Atiku /Obi 2019.
This, the coalition noted would be its nomenclature under which it will partner the Aliyu Bin Abbas-led Atiku Care Foundation, (ACF), hoping to fuse into the campaign organisation if need be.
The Urhobo-born ex-militant leader said the coalition, represented by him, sealed the partnership with the former President at a weekend meeting in Dubai, United Arab Emirate (UAE).
He noted that the coalition will mobilise the people of Niger Delta for Atiku, announcing plans for the ‘mother of all rallies’, to make its declaration public.
Akpodoro called on well-meaning sons and daughters to stand for a better and visionary leader in who the coalition has found a rescuer.
