In an attempt to broker peace between Dr. Joi Nunieth the immediate past Acting Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC and Senator Godswill Akpabio the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs over crises ignited by corruption allegations bothering on their poor management of the affairs of the Commission, which called for probe, the former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has called for ceasefire between Akpabio and Nunieth and stop further daily appearance on global outreach TV stations to fight dirty.

In his appeal for peaceful settlement of their differences, Fani-Kayode wrote:

“I have known Joy Nunieh for many years. She is a very tough cookie and exceptionally intelligent. She is NOT crazy, wayward or flippant”.

“She is a beautiful, righteous and principled lady who is a brilliant lawyer and who has always had the courage of her convictions. She is also a real fighter”.

“I appeal to both her and my old friend and brother Godswill Akpabio, who I have always liked and who I have immense respect for despite our political differences, to sheath their swords”.

“The only people that benefit from this public spat are those that hate and seek to mock the people of the Niger Delta and those that have nothing but contempt and disdain for the Nigerian people generally”.

“The matter has already hit the international airwaves and it is scandalous. When you marry it to the Hushpuppy scandal and the Magu meltdown it puts our country and people in a very precarious situation in the international community”.

“Whatever the issues are between the Minister and the former NDDC MD, let them be ironed out behind closed doors quietly and let whoever may have done any wrong be sanctioned by the President and if necessary the security agencies”.

“That is how these things are done at such high levels. It must not degenerate into a no holds barred market place ‘bolekaja’ slugfest where anything goes”.

“And whatever the case peoples private lives, how many husbands they have had, the challenges they may have had in marriage and issues of sexual molestation in the office should not be part of this. To take it to that shameful level is simply sordid and well beneath both parties who I know very well”.

“There ought to be some limitations, decency and decorum in this. There must be certain lines and boundaries that must never be crossed. Both Godswill and Joy are just too good for this show of shame”.

“Again I appeal to them both: SHEATH YOUR SWORDS before the matter gets to a point of no return, someone takes advantage of it and something frightful, untoward and regrettable happens”.

“May God grant you both the wisdom to accept my humble counsel and may He watch over, lead and guide you both”.
