Government Announces Plan for Niger Delta

President Olusegun Obasanjo has announced the governments decision to make the development of the Niger delta a reality. The decision was announced yesterday at the Banquet hall of the presidential Villa, Abuja during the inauguration of a 50 member consolidated council on Social and Economic Development of Coastal states of the Niger Delta.

The president unfolded a massive short, medium and long term development programme for the oil producing states.

The short term covers the period from now to the next two years, medium term is from two years to five years and long term is five years and above.

Whether this solves the problem of the Niger Delta is something we must wait to see
