I am calling on states governors in Niger Delta to kindly allow Nddc Palliative Distribution Committe to handle the Process Mostly His Excellency Executive Gov of Rivers State, Gov Wike was pressurising the committee to hand over the items meant for the state to the government, That issue have delayed the distribution of the items.
Emmalex called on the Governors of the region to allow the committee set up by the commission to steer the distribution of the palliatives to do its work.
“It is unnecessary for the palliatives to be given to the Governors because the Federal Government has made it clear that it is for the region and Hon. Sobomabo Jackrich and his team are capable of delivering it to the people.
“The Governors of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike, are the persons who have been trying to truncate this process.
“The process by the NDDC is not politicized, it is to benefit all Niger Deltans, Most Niger Delta State Gov’s set up their own palliative committee but it was been handled And Distributed by their Party Members
“We Persons living with Disabilities trust in the leadership of Jackrich because we know he will deliver these palliatives to the poor people in the region without fear or favour.”
We regretted that the alleged move by the governors have delayed the commencement of the distribution of the palliatives by the Jackrich led committee, thanking President Muhammadu Buhari, for the gesture.
Also, Speaking Acting chairman of persons living with Disabilities in Niger Delta Mr Reuben Oba inigbelabia: We are happy with what the federal government has done in the area of palliatives for the poor people in Niger Delta.
“We are calling on the governors of the region to stop disturbing the process so that the committee can start the distribution to the people that need them.
