1 August 2011

UGHELLI – THE Niger Delta Youth Movement, NDYM, has urged the Federal Government to commence the remediation and reclamation of the Niger Delta agricultural lands polluted by crude oil since the beginning of oil exploration in the region.

National president of the NDYM, Mr. Godspower Odenema, said in a statement, yesterday, that the issue was becoming more worrisome since agriculture was the mainstay of the people of the region.

He said: “We, the leaders of the youths of the Niger Delta region, having identified agriculture as being able to solve the chronic problem of unemployment for millions of our youths, have decided to vigoriously mobilise our youths to take to farming.
