Mr Michael Diongoli a renowned business practitioner and philanthropist of the Niger Delta has called on Mr. President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to reveal his government’s wholistic plan for the development of the Niger Delta, particularly with regards to infrastructure, technological advancements, agriculture, education and harnessing of the bountiful resources available in the Niger Delta.
Speaking with newsmen, Mr. Diongoli Michael said “I believe this government means well, and Mr President postures as a man filled with vision, willpower, and total commitment to the Nigerian project. However; he needs to articulate his plans for the people of the Niger Delta region.
The Niger Delta is not just an oil-rich region that contributes largely to the revenue of the nation, but a region rich with human resources (industrious people) who seek to contribute their quota to the Nigerian project.
Thus, we seek that Mr. President be magnanimous enough to have an inclusive government that embodies the needs and concerns of the Niger Delta people. We desire federal collaboration on progressive projects and initiatives within the Niger Delta and its support for Indigenous-based enterprises.
We, therefore, call on Mr. President, the Ministry of Niger Delta, the Niger Delta Development Commission, and all concerned authorities to vividly state their plans for the development of the Niger Delta so that the citizenry can be substantially informed, key into the plans, and hold the government accountable accordingly.
We trust that the President Tinubu-led administration would show adequate commitment to the development of the Niger Delta region and would wish to assure him of our continuous support for his progressive plans for the Niger Delta region.
