The Chairman of Meinbutu Kingdom, Comrade Boundle Funpu, as well as the Deputy Parliament Speaker, Ijaw Youth Congress, Gesco Government and the General P.R.O. of the Kingdom, Dickson OmoloyeÂ applauded the nomination of Rtd Vice Marshall Larry Koinyan as the chairman of Niger Delta Development Commission by both Mr. President and the Vice President.
The group, in a release on behalf of the entire Meinbutu Kingdom, noted that it was a welcome development.
According to them, Larry Koinyan is a very eminent, responsible man competent to deliver the Niger-Delta from its present travails and fast-track genuine empowerment and development.
They enjoined the kingdom which comprises Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers states, to give Koinyan a chance so that he could make the big difference in the trouble-infested area, admonishing the Federal Government not to heed any armchair criticism of this illustrious and dynamic Delta leader.
According to the release, NDDC needed leaders like him to make a proper change and that Niger Deltans should give him an enabling environment to execute his proposed programmes for the region, revealing that on account of his kindness to and love for the masses, Koinyan empowered both old and young during his tenure as the boss of DFFRI.
