By Victor Bieni, Asaba

The National Coordinator, Centre For Peace And Environmental Justice (CEPEJ), Comrade Chief Sherrif Mulade has applauded President Mohammadu Buhari for listening to Nigerians on the appointment of new service Chiefs, while he also appealed to the President to listen to citizens' Lamentations on the need for restructuring of the country.

The Niger Delta born development activist and peace advocate, Chief (Comrade) Sheriff Mulade disclosed this to the media in a press statement made available to newsmen today in Asaba, Delta State capital congratulated the new service Chiefs.

Chief Mulade commended President Buhari's gesture of listening to the Citizens' call for rejigging of the nation's Security architecture, or apparatus has put an end to agitations from the people on rising I security in the country.

CEPEJ Boss stated further that now is the best time for the restructuring of the country, while he called on other stakeholders in Nigeria to intensify on the call for the urgent restructuring of the country following the mismanagement of the nation’s resources as well as the endless marginalization of the South-South Region of the country.

He said: "This call has become necessary as critical Stakeholders such as politicians, religious and ethnic groups in all parts of the country, especially in recent times, show that restructuring is the only solution to the Nigeria's problems".

Speaking on the role of the Niger Delta in national development, Chief Mulade, the Ibe-Sorimowei of Gbaramatu Kingdom in Delta State, said the region is the main economic live wire of Nigeria by virtue of its crude oil and gas productions.

According to him, Niger-delta region earns the Nation huge financial incomes. The renowned Activist however, lamented the utter neglect of the oil and gas rich region in terms of infrastructure, health, road construction, economic and human empowerment, as well as security and education, amongst others.

In the words of Chief Mulade, a front-line development advocate politician in Warri South West LGA of Delta State: "I expressed sadness over the high level of political marginalization of the Niger Delta people, many of whom are qualified to work for the growth and development of Nigeria but are unfortunately not included in the present adminstration, and are rather ridiculed when making suggestions for nation building".

"I commend President Muhammadu Buhari for his proactiveness towards tackling the Insecurity challenges, especially with the appointment of the new service chiefs. However, restructuring is part of the developmental agenda of the All Progressive Congress ( APC ), as a party. It was also one of the main reasons the people voted the party to power in the first place".

" I charged the presidency to listen to the voices of the people and restructure the country now before it is too late. The call is necessitated by the rise in the spate of insecurity across the Nation".
