Minister Abubakar Momoh has solicited the cooperation of governors from the Niger Delta to speed up the region’s development.
The minister said his visit to Akwa Ibom 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.
Mr Eno called for regular meetings of the leadership of the Niger Delta ministry with state governments in the region to explore the best ways to approach the peculiar development needs of the area to avoid duplication and conflicts in project execution.
The Niger Delta affairs minister said insecurity and infrastructure deficit were the region’s major challenges.
“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,” stated Mr Eno. “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.”
