Grassroots Involvement in Niger Delta Development

The development of the Niger Delta does not only lie in the hands of the government at all levels but it transcends to even the people at the grassroots hence there is a need for all to work together.

The youths in every community are seen as the future that would maintain and sustain development.

It is for this reason that youths in the Niger Delta have been warned against attacking contractors handling projects in their various environments and locality.

Stakeholders in the Niger Delta decried the constant harassment and lobbying of contractors by many young persons when they are on site for any developmental project.

They say the continual attack on contractors would discourage them from carrying out their duties efficiently adding that some contractors have abandoned their projects due to lack of funds to continue as youths in the communities forcefully collected huge sums of money from them.

They appealed to youths in the region to see these projects as a positive addition to their communities as they would be the first beneficiaries of good roads, portable water, power supply and other amenities.
