A Niger-Delta Ex-militant leader, self Style Gen. Abraham Vwaghie has lambasted the Federal Government for treating few of the Ex-militants who are seen as acting violent against government infrastructure with Kids gloves by offering them juicy pipeline contract, while those who are peace Ambassadors in the Niger-Delta as cowards.

Vwaghie, who is the founder of the Divine Bethel Bible Church, located in Sapele, Delta state, is a Phase II Ex-agitator, that drops Arms to embrace the Presidential Amnesty Programme in 2009.

In a media chat with our correspondent, Vwaghie blew-hot, lambasted the Federal Government for only recognizing those they perceived as violent and treated them nice, giving them juicy Pipeline contract, ‘but we that are peace makers are not recognized’, according to him.

“In my community, Emadaja town in
Udu Local Government Area, Delta state, we have over 18 Well Heads and numerous pipelines and I know all the points that, if acted upon will affect the system.

“I still have boys littered all over the places with just a phone call something will happen.

“When I see some of my colleagues benefiting from this pipeline contract, some of them I was far ahead in the game back then, while me, being snob by the government because I chose to take the part of peace, is not really encouraging.

“We all dropped the same gun in the process of embracing the amnesty programme, as they are Generals in their various Camps, in Phase I, II and III with their boys, so I am.

“Majority of us are not benefiting from this ongoing pipeline contract, unlike me, some might not take it lightly with the Federal Government, is very clear that the only thing they recognize is violence. you that tow the part of peace is seen as a weakling, not knowing that the leopard never looses its spot.

“I am now a man of God, I decided to choose the part of peace, I encourage anybody I come across to embrace peace for the good and wellbeing of the society but that does not mean I should be taken for granted.

“I vow never to disrupt any government infrastructure especially the pipelines and wellheads in my community, those are federal government properties, anything that happens to those facilities affect our economy badly, but if I could think and acted in this direction, the government should equally consider how I feel. Not only when I acted negatively that they will respond,” he noted.

The ex-agitator accused the Federal Government of encouraging violence, as it only listens or works with the seeming violent types.

He appealed that he also be engaged in pipeline surveillance contract to enable him settle his boys across the Niger Delta.

His words; “The way things are going, the government is only encouraging violence and seen those of us who tow the part of peace as weakling. Building this kind of society poses serious danger in the near future.

“I am using this medium to call on the Federal Government and those responsible for the Pipelines contract to give me my part, so I can use it to empower my boys in order to always tow the part of peace that I am already doing.”
