Written by on December 16, 2020

MINISTER OF STATE FOR NIGER DELTA, OMOTAYO ALASOADURA, HAS BLAMED DEVELOPMENTAL CHALLENGES IN THE NIGER DELTA REGION ON LAPSES IN IMPLEMENTATION, ADOPTION OF WRONG STRATEGIES, INSUFFICIENT COORDINATION AND ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE COLLABORATIVE FRAMEWORK.

THE MINISTER STATED THIS IN PORT HARCOURT WHILE DECLARING THE PRE-COUNCIL SEMINAR OF THE 14TH NATIONAL COUNCIL ON NIGER DELTA OPEN.

REGRETTING THAT THE LOFTY STRATEGIC INTENTIONS OF THE GOVERNMENT HAVE NOT BEEN TRANSLATED INTO MEANINGFUL DEVELOPMENT OVER THE YEARS, ALASOADURA RE-ECHOED THE INTENTIONS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN ADOPTING THE BEST APPROACH TOWARDS ADDRESSING DEVELOPMENTAL CHALLENGES IN THE NIGER DELTA REGION.

HE NOTED THAT THE NATIONAL COUNCIL ON NIGER DELTA WAS APPROVED BY THE FEDERAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL (FEC) AS A FORUM TO SEEK THE BUY-IN AND PARTICIPATORY APPROACH OF STAKEHOLDERS TOWARDS ACHIEVING THE MANDATE OF THE MINISTRY WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY TO MANAGE, COORDINATE, PROMOTE AND INITIATE DEVELOPMENT POLICIES AND PROCESSES IN THE NIGER DELTA.
