Ondo traditional rulers call for more support to Niger Delta
Traditional rulers in Ondo State have called on President Goodluck Jonathan not to relent in his effort to transform the Niger Delta region to an enviable standard as promised, so that the relative peace currently witnessed in the area could be sustained.
The traditional rulers gave the advice at separate meetings with the Ondo State representative on the Governing Council of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Benson Enikuomehin, at Igbokoda and Okitipupa.
According to them, the only way to sustain peace and prevent a recurrence of the crisis in the Niger Delta region is for the people to continue benefitting from the federal and state governments.
