The Bayelsa State Government is set to welcome the acting President, Yemi Osinbajo.
Professor Osinbajo is scheduled to meet with the leaders of the Niger Delta, to discuss how to achieve peace, that would lead to the improvement in crude oil production and resolve the youth restiveness in the oil rich region.
This is the first visit of Professor Osinbajo as an acting President, who is leading a high level delegation of the Federal Government, in an interaction with traditional rulers of the region.
The first time Professor Osinbajo held a similar meeting was at Gbaramatu Kingdom in Delta State, where he told the people that the Federal Government feels the pain of the Niger Delta region.
The Bayelsa Government on Thursday released a statement saying it is looking forward to receiving Professor Yemi Osinbajo, when he visits the state, as part of his tour to some states in the Niger Delta region.
The state government urged residents to come out en masse to welcome the nation’s number two citizen.
It also assured the acting President of the hospitality of people of the state and urged him to use the occasion of his visit to experience same for himself.
Furthermore, it called on him to access critical areas of the state that need prompt intervention by the Federal Government, stating that Bayelsa is the epic centre of all the issues as the home land of the Ijaw ethnic nationality.
