Tinubu pledges to bring infrastructural and economic transformation to the Niger Delta

Former Niger Delta militant leaders are urging President Bola Tinubu to tackle the nation’s economic hardships. They advocate for state control of resources, viewing it as a crucial step in addressing the country’s economic challenges. These resolutions emerged from a stakeholders’ meeting convened by the Niger Delta warlords at Senior High Chief Bibopere Ajube’s residence in Agadagba-Obon, Ondo State.

Parallel discussions were held earlier in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, indicating a widespread sentiment among former militants. Their call for Tinubu’s attention underscores the urgency they feel regarding the current economic crisis. By emphasizing the need for states to manage their resources, they aim to empower local governments and potentially alleviate the economic burdens faced nationwide.
