By Festus Ahon
ASABA—THE Senator representing Delta Central senatorial district, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has said every Nigerian should feel at home anywhere in the country, urging those with genuine reason to agitate to follow the path of conditionality, law, dialogue, love, brotherhood and peace.
Reacting to the notice to quit issued by Niger Delta youths, Omo-Agege, said: “As responsible leaders, we have a solemn, constitutional and moral duty to always ensure that there is sustainable peace and love in this country.
“Every Nigerian should feel at home and protected wherever he or she finds himself or herself in the territory of Nigeria.
“So I want to strongly advise and appeal for peace and urge our security agencies to be vigilant and maintain the peace at all times. We don’t want our fellow citizens to be intimidated, harassed or killed extra-judicially for whatever reasons.
“Whoever has genuine grievances should follow the path of constitutionality, law, dialogue, love, brotherhood and peace. We are one. We have the resilience and infinite capacity to handle all challenges confronting us as a people.
“I trust the federal, state and local governments to ensure that peace is maintained everywhere in the Niger Delta region and in the nation as a whole.
“I must advise also that this should not be a pretext by any security agent to harass our peace-loving people. That shouldn’t happen at all.
“Let’s constantly engage with ourselves in wisdom as we build a better society for all.”
