The Niger Delta Expects

This Day
25 October 2011

The second is an unstated mandate to renew the social and political contract between the peoples of the Niger Delta and the Nigerian federation through rapid reparatory development of the region. The expectations of each aspect of this mandate are divergent but mutually inclusive. One is the other.
