Youths endorse Niger Delta Governors

21 August 2015, 10:04Okoro Chinedu

Lagos – The Concerned Niger Delta Youths Initiative has commended the strides made by governors in the Niger Delta since taking their oaths in May.

Ebis Orubebe, President of the organisation, said the governors had defied financial challenges during their tenures thus far.

“It is a remarkable take-off considering that most of their counterparts in other parts of the country have remained cap-in-hand waiting for bail-outs from the federal government before they could commence governance in their various states,” said Orubebe.

Orubebe said the new governors of the Niger Delta states had proven their preparedness to serve and deliver their campaign promises to their people.

“We urge them to sustain their giant and enviable pace in governance and not to be distracted by the antics of detractors expect to continue to unleash good governance for the already excited masses of their states.”

The official said the Concerned Niger Delta Youths Initiative enjoined the people of the region to complement the patriotic gesture of these governors with their total support to enable them accomplish more developments beyond their campaign promises. – CAJ News
