Way forward:N-Delta leaders meet tomorrow in Warri

WARRI—NIGER-DELTA leaders are expected to meet  weekend in  Warri, Delta State to brainstorm and proffer a way forward for the region after the proclamation of amnesty for militants in the region by President Umaru Yar’Adua.

Vanguard learnt yesterday that invitation messages for the meeting had been dispatched to the leaders expected at the meeting to be hosted by Niger-Delta leader and former Federal Minister of Information, Chief Edwin Clark.

Contacted yesterday, Chief Clark confirmed that he was, indeed, the convener of the meeting, adding that the idea was for the leaders of the region to chart a way forward.

It was gathered that between six to 10 representatives may come from each of the nine states of the Niger-Delta, where the decisions reached would be communicated to the Federal Government for prompt action.
