Four days for the threats made by former militant leader, Chief Government Ekpemupolo alias TOMPOLO to elapse , the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio accompanied with 5 gunboats goes through the creeks to Tompolo’s village for a meeting over the seven days ultimatum to the federal government to inaugurate a substantive board for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) or be shut down
Welcome to your home, the creeks of Niger delta, we the concerned citizens are joyful over this visit because peace is priceless and terror is senseless. We have not recovered from the impact of the exit of oil companies and other investors which has turned Warri, a one time bubbling oil city to Keke city. When the board was previously formed did we see any impact of the formation? rather what we saw was shoddy and abandoned projects littering the region and the contractors who were the beneficiary of such project cruising in new Prado jeeps because they pocketed money for contracts they never executed.
