Though the promises made by the federal government might have been delayed due to the fact that procedures cannot be boycotted, but the federal government has made an appeal to the Niger Delta Avengers following their threats to resume hostility activities in the area if their demands are not attended to. This appeal was made by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Usani Usani after a meeting with the president.
It is clear that the issues raised by the Avengers are geared towards the development of the region but Mr. President has plans on the ground already to see to their resolutions.
Usani Usani appealed to Niger Delta Avengers to be patient with the government. That there are procedures to be followed by the Government before executing their plans for the Niger Delta People. According to Usani Usani, the vice president has directed that Okerekenko University must take off.
The minister emphatically said that it is not true that government has failed to fulfill its promises to the area but necessary procedures to establish this demand is not just a day’s job and they are ensuring that management measures are in place to sustain these infrastructures.The government is very much prepared to meet with any group which shows a willingness to discuss with the administration.
