by on March 10, 2017

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.
