FG denies favouring N/Delta

12 October 2011

The Federal Government, Tuesday, denied favouring the Niger Delta region at the expense of other geo-political zones in the country in the distribution of developmental projects.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Reuben Abati, in a statement said: “It is a verifiable fact that the Niger Delta projects listed in the Bureau of Public Procurement, BPP, publication which formed the basis of the mischievous report were initiated, not by President Goodluck Jonathan, but by his late predecessor, President Umaru Yar’Adua.

“The projects, which were envisioned by late President Yar’Adua to give full effect to his admirable commitment to redressing the underdevelopment of the Niger Delta, are all contained in the Appropriation Act passed by the National Assembly which represents all sections of the country.
