Following the dissolution of the office of the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta by President Goodluck Jonathan, ex-militants have started canvassing for the re-appointment of Kinsley Kuku.
The President of the Association for Non-Violence in the Niger Delta, Kennedy Tonjo-West, yesterday said appointing another person would destroy the peace between the ex-militants and the government.
The ex-militants, according to Tonjo-West, see Kuku as someone who can drive the programme to a logical conclusion, adding that the President should avoid politicising it.
He said: “There have been rumours on plans to appoint Kuku as a minister in the new cabinet.
