2 National President of MOSIEND, Mr Kenedy Tonjo-West, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Yenagoa that the people of Niger Delta region were optimistic that Umanah had the capacity to make a difference.
4 He regretted that the non-composition of a substantive board for NDDC for over three years had deprived the region of the much-needed development that had necessitated the creation of the interventionist agency.
5 “MOSIEND urges the people of Niger Delta to support and cooperate with the minister for democratic dividends to get to the people.
6 “As an accomplished economist, accountant and public administrator, we are expecting credible, transparent and people-oriented policies.
7 “The policies should, in particular, cover human capital development, entrepreneurship and vocational training, incentive to grow SMEs, cottage industries, improved volunteering, attracting investors and health care, etc.,” Tonjo-West said.
8 He urged Umana to ensure immediate constitution of a substantive board for NDDC to ensure a broad-based participation in the affairs of the commission. (
