The Bayelsa State Governor Henry Seriake Dickson on Thursday visited former governor of Delta State, James Onanefe Ibori, in his Oghara country home.
During the visit, Dickson held a closed-door meeting with Ibori in his residence.
In a statement, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Daniel Iworiso Markson, said that the meeting centred on peace and security in the Niger Delta, as well as possible roles the former Delta State Governor, who still commands a lot of respect among his people, could play, especially in the area of rallying major stakeholders towards tackling some of the peace and security challenges in the region.
Markson further disclosed that the two leaders equally discussed windows of opportunities for restive youths in the region to be more meaningfully engaged as well as protect some of the critical national assets of the country within the region.
Dickson, who had earlier spoken with his Delta State counterpart, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, expressed satisfaction with the disposition and resolve of the former governor to support current measures at tackling the age-long security challenges in the region.
The governor was accompanied by the Secretary to state government, Hon Festus Ovie Agas, some members of the State Executive Council, including the Commissioner of Information and Orientation, Hon Jonathan Obuebite.
