Kingsley Kuku, the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, has appealed to leaders of former militants to eschew unguarded comments capable of heating up the nation?s polity.

This is contained in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja by Daniel Alabrah, the Head of Media and Communications of the office. Kuku said the appeal became necessary in the light of recent development involving some of the top leaders of the former agitators in the Niger Delta.

“The Amnesty Office views with serious concern, comments credited to some of them as reported in the media in recent weeks. My appeal to the leaders of the former agitators is to be circumspect in their comments.

“They need to be cautious about what they say as it could convey a different meaning to different people and unnecessarily heat up the Niger Delta and the country at large.??

The Presidential aide, who said that unguarded comments had the potential to inflame passion, urged the embattled leaders to close ranks and not be seen to be fighting themselves.

He advised them continue to utilise all the available channels of communicating their grievances to the government, particularly through the amnesty office and assured them that his office “is always open to them.?
