The leader of the Pan Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, High Chief Mike Ekayama Loyibo on Friday presented N500,000 cash each to 30 beneficiaries comprising elders, women and youths for entrepreneurial purposes during an empowerment programme in commemoration of his birthday.

In attendance at the event was the Senator representing Delta South District, Senator James Manager, who called on the Niger Delta Ministry, the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and the Delta State government to save coastal communities in the Niger Delta from extinction.

Senator Manager’s call came on the heels of a failed Tuomo Shore Protection Wall at the coastal community of Tuomo in Burutu Local Government Area of the state last Sunday that has left the creek on the verge of extinction.

Speaking at the empowerment programme in commemoration of the birthday of Chief Mike Loyibo, at Tuomo on Friday, Senator Manager said the Niger Delta was a special and peculiar part of the country and therefore deserved a special attention, too.

He described the region as very wealthy but neglected, thereby calling on the NDDC, Niger Delta Ministry and the Delta State government to intervene so that natural disasters such as coastal erosion will not wipe away the communities.

Chief Loyibo, who presented N500,000 cash each to 30 beneficiaries comprising elders, women and youths for entrepreneurial purposes, averred that “if you have wealth and you’ve not impacted your people, you have no wealth.”

The youth leader, who has provided shelters and attracted developmental projects to communities in the region, said his philanthropic gesture was not politically motivated, but purely to raise the economic status of the rural folks.

Dignitaries at the event included former Minister of Police Affairs, Chief Aloawei Broderick Bozimo, PDP state chairman, Chief Kingsley Esiso, member representing Burutu Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Hon Julius Pondi, and royal fathers, among others.
