The Federal Government revealed that its forthcoming empowerment initiative is aimed at improving the livelihoods of young people in the Niger Delta and mitigating unrest in the region’s nine states.
The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Abubakar Momoh, provided this assurance yesterday while conducting an inspection of certain projects during a courtesy visit to Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi, the Deji of Akure, in Akure, Ondo State.
Momoh further emphasized that the empowerment program would ensure comprehensive support for the youth in the Niger Delta’s nine states.
His words: “We will do some positive things. In the next four years, Nigeria will be transformed.
“The present administration of Bola Tinubu would do things differently and would ensure that our youths in the Niger Delta region are empowered.
“The President takes seriously, the security of lives and property.
“The change we are bringing is to make sure quality projects are delivered in the Niger Delta.
“Roads will be constructed to standard and specification and not constructing infrastructure that will wear away very soon.
“By the time we start to execute our empowerment programme, the youths will be happy.
“There is a huge gap between the rich and poor. The President wants to put an end to poverty and infrastructure decay.
“He is committed to providing infrastructure. All the nine states under our supervision will be taken care of.”
