PAN-Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, has accused the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbjo of causing confusion in the Niger Delta region.
The group said Osinbajo hays created confusion with his purported abandonment of the Strategic Implementation Work Plan, SWIP, for development of the region.
The group’s delegation led by His Royal Majesty, Diette Spiff and King Jaja of Opobo, stated this in an interactive session with the Senate and House of Representatives Committees on Niger Delta at Abuja.
In a statement made available to reporters after the interactive session, PANDEF suggested a communication gap between them and Osinbajo.
PANDEF said, “In the meantime, as a distraction, the Vice President’s Office seems to have abandoned the SWIP for what it now calls the New Vision for the Niger Delta.
“All the players in the region (Niger Delta Development Commission, Presidential Amnesty Programme and Hydrocarbon Pollution Remediation Project), are working independently without synergy.
Given a background to the establishment of SWIP, PANDEF asserted, “SIWP is conceived in the context of a series of engagements with the stakeholders in the region, including the visit of the Vice President to the region where he made several commitments to come up with a document containing intervention/ measures covering the short and medium term.”
