13% derivation insufficient for development of Niger Delta – Dickson
Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson on Tuesday said the 13% derivation principle was a mockery of the yearnings and aspirations of the people of the Niger Delta.
The governor said the 13 percent derivation was not enough to develop the Niger Delta region.
A statement issued by Dickson’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Francis Agbo said the governor spoke on Tuesday during a live media chat in Ijaw language in Government House Yenagoa.
The governor argued that only restructuring would guarantee sustainable peace, stability and development in the Niger Delta and other parts of the country.
