Minister seeks cooperation of Niger Delta govs to develop region



The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Mr Abubakar Momoh, has solicited the cooperation of State Governors from the region to speed up development of the Niger Delta region.

Momoh said this when he paid a courtesy visit to Gov. Umo Eno of Akwa Ibom, at Government House, Uyo, on Thursday.

He said his visit to the state was part of his tour of the region to seek synergy with state governors to garner full support from the Federal Government to speed up development in the Niger Delta region.

The minister said that insecurity and infrastructure deficit were the major challenges confronting the Niger Delta region.

He said that there was the need to do away with all sorts of counterproductive power play and conflicts to make room for needed cooperation and collaborations to tackle the problems in the region and country.

Momoh expressed delight over the warm reception accorded him and his entourage in the state during the visit.

In his remarks, Gov. Eno advocated for greater collaborations between the Federal Ministry and States within the region.

Eno said his administration was ready to embrace cooperation and synergy with the federal government to foster positive development in the region.

He commended President Bola Tinubu’s inclusivity disposition in governance, stressing that the President has demonstrated governance beyond party lines.

The governor said that the Minister’s visit to states in the region, particularly Akwa Ibom, was apt, adding that the development plans of the Ministry were already integral in his ARISE Agenda development manual.

“I feel very happy that you really want to see for yourself, the situation of our states and the people you are going to work with.
“Get to meet the governors and look beyond politics and think of how to develop our various states in partnership with the governors.

“I will like to thank the approach of the President for his inclusivity in governance and it is a very welcome approach that this President is working with people across party lines.

“You can see his appointments, there are people from other parties there.

“You could see the things he is doing. He wants to carry everyone along. I always believed that party is a platform to seek election to serve our people.

“And once God has given us the opportunity which only him can do, next is to collaborate and serve the people,” Eno said.

Eno called for regular meetings of the leadership of the Ministry with State governments in the region to explore best ways to approach the peculiar development needs of the area to avoid duplication and conflicts in project execution.

We Will Not Rest Until LP Takes Over Govt And Provide Quality Leadership – Abure



The National Chairman of the Labour Party, LP, Julius Abure has vowed to ensure the party takes over power in Nigeria and provide quality leadership.

He spoke while addressing journalists in Umuahia, Abia State, following a meeting with Governor Alex Otti and members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of LP.

He said, “We will not rest until we are able to take over government and provide the people quality leadership that will work for the country.

“How do you reconcile a situation where we export crude oil only to import refined products at high costs. Nigeria’s problem is bad leadership, and once we get it right, every other thing will be fixed.

“Today, you can see that Nigeria is not moving as it should. A bag of rice sells for N120, 000 while minimum wage is N30,000. A tuber of yam that previously sold for N500 is now N1200.

“Life has become very difficult in Nigeria; security challenges are enormous; inflation is very high; unemployment is increasing, and people now find it increasingly difficult to feed. This is the reality in Nigeria today under APC Government.

“We will provide a leadership that will fight poverty and fight hunger; a leadership that will empathize with the people and liberate them.”
