The Niger Delta Youth Coalition for Peace and Progress (NDYCPP) has condemned some House Representatives members kicking against the relocation of oil firms to the Niger Delta region.

Rising from an emergency meeting held on Saturday in Yenagoa the group condemned the objection of the motion at the floor of the house which led to the throwing out of the motion.

Mr Kennedy West, Pioneer Coordinator of the group, described the development as a calculated effort to further impoverish the people of the Niger Delta region with abundant oil deposits which the country depend on.

The Vice President, Prof Yemi Osimbajo, during his visit to the Niger Delta region in February directed all the oil companies operating in the region to relocate to Niger Delta region.

Hon. Opiah Goodluck Nanah had in a motion prayed the House to mandate his committee on petroleum resources to liaise with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to fast track the policy.

The motion wanted a review policies and guidelines of oil companies regarding location of their administrative and operational offices.

“Presently we have withdrawn our respect for members of the house because the reason for which they shouted down the motion was not really tangible.

“Is it that they are afraid of the revenue that will come to the Niger Delta if the oil majors relocate their headquarters to the region?

“It is targeted at creating mayhem in the Niger Delta. It gives us a picture that there is a coup against the peace and progress of Niger Delta.

“It makes us feel very worried and sad in spite of all that we have gone through, the sacrifices we have made in trying to make sure we that there is peace in this region.

“It makes us very sad and very bad and we expect an apology from them and we want to commend our brother Eric Opia and we ask him to take up the matter again.

“For this reason we are going to march down to the National Assembly and make our point very strongly and heard in every places let the world and God judge.

“Those people seated in the House of Representatives have done injustice to the Niger Delta,” West said.
