Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, Friday, accepted former Federal Commissioner for Information, Chief Edwin Clark, as leader of Niger Delta militants’ delegation to dialogue with the Federal Government.
MEND also conveyed its readiness to disband its Aaron Team 2, headed by Odein Ajumogobia and work with Chief Clark.
Secretary of Aaron Team 2, Timipa Okponipere, conveyed MEND’s position to the elder statesman in Warri.
Reacting, Clark commended MEND for accepting the outcome of the meeting of Niger Delta monarchs, leaders and stakeholders had last Friday, in Warri.
However, he and other leaders, who were with him during the visit of the Aaron Team delegation, dissociated themselves from a meeting some Ijaw stalwarts had last Thursday, with the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachikwu.
