Commander Biggy made the statement in Yenagoa yesterday while responding to the Press said,people are calling him up and down spreading all sort of propaganda about him because of his support for the Amnesty boss,Prof. Charles Quaker Dokubo and President Muhammadu Buhari re-election in 2019.
According to Commander Biggy said ;” I am pleading to all the leaders in the Niger-Delta,I don’t have issue with any leader.My publications is not opposed to any leader, rather to buttress my opinion and interest.Anybody who take it personal as offence, you are on your own.”
” Commander Biggy reiterated that,some people are out there misinterpreting my publication,but I want to categorically state here that I owe you no apology.Everyday is entitled to his or her own opinion.
If you think Prof.Charles Dokubo has not done enough in the Amnesty office,it is your right to speak up and settle your differences through dialogue.I will only support the call of Niger-Delta leaders asking Dokubo to implement the agreements reached during the offer of Presidential Amnesty in 2009 but not the call for his head cut off,Commander Biggy asserted. “
However,Commander Ebi reemphasize that,he was not against any leader,rather he is calling on them to stop being greedy and carry along their followers they left behind.
