Lagos - The Niger Delta Ethnic Nationalities Youth Leaders Movement (NDENYLM) has appealed to the newly-elected Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to ensure the development of the state they believe is largely neglected.
“As ex-militants and free men, we call on the new Senate President to use his good offices to police the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs, the Niger Delta Development Commission, the Presidential Amnesty Committee and the National Assembly may consider their dissolution or overhaul where and when necessary in order to achieve the desired objectives for their creation in the first place,” the organisation stated.
NDENYLM said this appeal had become sacrosanct against the backdrop of their deviation from the set objectives of their creation.

“Our region is dotted with abandoned projects, with contractors and most politicians from our region reaping-off the ordinary people by way of collecting mobilization fees and abandoning same,” the group stated.
Meanwhile, NDENYLM has congratulated Bukola Saraki and and Yakubu Dogara on their election as President and Speaker of the eighth Senate and House of Representatives respectively.
The organisation said their election was a reflection of their humility and quality political background.
The officials were elected on Wednesday.
