As one who has not only reported the region for some time, but as a Niger Deltan, I make bold to say that the reasons for the continued existence of the Commission are daily being threatened by the seeming silence of government in the face of glaring, inexplicable vices capable of drawing the region several years back.
Initially, some had mistaken the infighting at the Commission for an ethnic musing, but events in the last six months are to the effect that the federal government now needs to be more proactive if we still desire development in the region. Questions are being asked daily and frequently too, about the finances of the Commission without answers from anywhere.
