Leaders from the oil-rich Niger Delta region are currently in an urgent gathering due to concerns about the possible elimination of the Ministry of the Niger Delta Affairs by the Federal Government.
Reactions have emerged in response to the ministerial roles assigned to the screened nominees on Wednesday, which notably omitted the Niger Delta Affairs portfolio. As a response to this situation, the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) has organized an emergency meeting of regional leaders.
The National Publicity Secretary of PANDEF, Hon. Ken Robinson, communicated that the meeting is presently underway in Abuja. Robinson, speaking during a phone call, revealed that the main focus of the meeting is the suspected removal of the ministry. He mentioned that the meeting will formulate a strong stance regarding this development.
“We saw the list of ministerial nominee and allocation published by the presidency and Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs was missing conspicuously.
“There have been reactions. PANDEF has been inundated with calls from stakeholders in the Niger Delta region and it is disturbing. So, PANDEF is holding and emergency meeting today in Abuja. and we are going to come out with a very strong position and statement after this meeting today.”
