Niger Delta leaders praise Muhammadu Buhari, Godswill Akpabio

Key leaders in the Niger Delta region on Wednesday commended the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio for the huge changes in the region.

The leaders, deeply impressed by Akpabio’s political style and transparency, called for a united front against critics of the former Akwa-Ibom State governor.

Specifically, the leaders praised the minister for rewriting the history of the region, using his talent to achieve more for the people and effectively handling the development issues and challenges in the region.

In a statement in Yenagoa, the leaders described the minister’s critics as high ranking beggars surviving on dubious contracts in the country.

‘’Senator Godswill Akpabio is a man of vision. He sees far into the future’’ the leaders said.

The leaders emphasized Akpabio’s contribution towards resolving the problems that are impacting negatively on the Niger Delta people, restructuring, reformulation of policy postures, readjustment of strategies and reshaping of outward relations along more fashionable and multi-dimensional lines.

Signed by the chairman, Niger Delta Leaders Forum (NDLF), Chief John Harry, the leaders described the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to complete the East West Road by the end of 2021, the release of funds for the project and mobilization of contractors to the sites as encouraging.

‘’Senator Godswill Akpabio is a very good politician, strong and honest. In Akwa-Ibom, he expanded the opportunities and capabilities of people to live the lives they value. Indeed, he did more than anyone else to develop the oil rich state’’
