WARRI—WORRIED by the conflicting media identity of who heads newly constituted Niger Delta Riverine Protection Programme, NDRPP, the agency yesterday charged the media to get the facts right.
NDRPP said its National Coordinator, as constituted, is Mr. Tikari T. Y Danjuma (Jnr), and lamented that some recent reports had erroneously addressed his father, former Defence Minister, Lt Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (retd), as the coordinator, fueling confusion and resentments in many quarters.
A statement by Yerin Ekpedibo Yerin, his spokesman, said: “Hon Tikari was appointed Coordinator of NDRPP strictly on merit and his unparalleled commitment to activities of the Niger Delta. His father, the Lt Gen is Chairman, Presidential Committee on Northeast Initiative (PCNI), which has nothing to do with the NDRPP.”
