DELTA State Civil Society Organizations for Good Governance, DECGOG, has described as baffling and misleading, claims by the Pan Niger Delta Development Forum, PANDEF, that the Federal Government abandoned the Strategic Implementation Work Plan, SIWP, by creating the Niger Delta New Vision.

DECGOG, in a statement by Dr. Andrew Agborho, said “SIWP has always featured prominently in the presidency’s engagements with stakeholders across the region, of which. PANDEF representatives have been invited or participated in.”
The statement read: “It would be recalled that the Niger Delta New Vision, which is aimed at developing the region, was framed after the Vice President’s visits to the region in 2017. Prior to the Vice President’s visit, in November 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari met with PANDEF leaders so as to address concerns in the region.
