Formulate policy to tackle youths restiveness, law maker to N’Delta Minister


Formulate policy to tackle youths restiveness, law maker to N’Delta Minister
By;  VITALIS UGOH, Calabar.
A law maker in the Cross River State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Stephen Ukpukpen, representing Obudu Constituency, has advised the Minister of Niger Delta, Pastor Usani Uguru formulate policy that would address youths restiveness in the region.
He gave the advice while reacting to the appointment of Ministers and their inauguration by President Muhammadu Buhari especially the appointment of Usani who is from Crosss River State to head the Niger Delta ministry.
He commended the President for choosing Uguru for the position and expressed confidence that he would deliver in the discharge of his responsibilities.
Ukpukpen advised the Minister to tackle the daunting challenges facing the region, stating that youth empowerment should be given top priority as most of the restive youths in the region have engaged in nefarious activities because of supposed joblessness
While calling on the Minister to always remember that politics is not part of executive function, he urged him to shun sentiments and work across party lines towards achieving the change mantra of Mr. President.
“Despite the fact that the Niger Delta Minster was from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), according to him, his appointment by the President was not based on party affiliation but for the actualization of the development of the region”, he said.
Ukpukpen promised that the state will give the minister the needed support to deliver well to the people of the region, even as he charged the people of the region to work in synergy for rapid development of the region.
“On the appointment of a Minster from Cross River and for the portfolio of Niger Delta, I want to commend President Buhari for his magnanimity to have given the state such a befitting and tough responsibility. We are very proud of that, but above all,  I urge the minister to work across party lines and avoid sentiments, he said.”
