Dr Chris Ekiyor Appointed Secretary of Delta State Advocacy Committee to Tackle Pipeline Vandalism

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state has set up a high powered advocacy committee to tackle pipeline vandalism in the state headed by the Deputy Governor, Bar. Kingsley Otuaro and Dr Chris Ekiyor as secretary.
Having recognised the antecedents of Dr Ekiyor as a former president of Ijaw Youth council during the arms struggle day of the Niger Delta agitations and as a peace builder/non-violence instructor, the governor have put a roung peg in a round hole.
Ekiyor, a formwer commissioner of commerce and industry, who despite the prevailing risks toured all the volatile camps and creeks in the quest for peace at that time and was largely instrumental in the roundtable dialogue to disarm and re-integrate the ex-agitators. This culminated in the amnesty programme of the federal goverment today. He is very familiar with the terrain and no doubt will do a good job in the roadmap to the restoration of peace and normalcy vis-a-vis the task of securing oil installations in the state.
This the committee will do by finding the immediate and remote causes of the resurgence of these activities and creating platforms for dialogue.
Other members of the committee includes some serving Commissioners, SAs and heads of parastatals in the state.
Congratulations!
