The Pan Niger Delta Elders Forum, PANDEF, have arrived the Presidential Villa to meet with the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to address some issues surrounding Niger Delta as regards environmental deterioration as a result of oil exploration.

The representatives of PANDEF who met the acting president are; the elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, the former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Obong Victor Attah, former Chairman of Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC. Senator Bassey Ewa Henshaw among others.

Some members of the forum gave a swipe saying that the meeting might be the last they will attend if the government was not serious in addressing the contentious issues.

In addition, complain goes around that the roads in Abuja which were constructed with the oil money were in perfect order while roads in the zone that produces the oil was in dilapidated state.
