The Niger Delta Non-Violence Agitators Forum has said the opposition to the $1.5bn proposed by the Federal Government for the rehabilitation of the Port Harcourt refinery is needless.
The organisation also said going to court to ensure that Delta State government was not shortchanged in the £4.2m looted by ex-Governor James Ibori could not be ruled out.
The National President of NDNAF, Wisdom Ikuli, said these in an interview in Abuja on the sidelines of a news conference to pass a vote of confidence on the Minister of State for Petroleum, Timipre Sylva.
According to him, it was better to have the refinery rehabilitated due to the long-run benefit it would accrue to the country. He advised the Delta State government to seek redress in court to ensure that the Ibori loot was returned to them
