The scheduled Niger Delta regional summit organized by the Cross River State Government in collaboration with the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, to address security challenges in the region has been postponed to January, 2013.

The summit according to the State Security Adviser to Governor Liyel Imoke, Mr. Rekpene Bassey was conceived to address a number of key security challenges in the region especially the challenges of illegal bunkering, piracy, kidnapping and armed robbery.

Bassey in a statement recalled that the Niger Delta region which is rich in hydrocarbons from which the nation draws its major revenue had been afflicted by several security issues.

“Until recently when the federal government introduced the amnesty programme, the region had been the centre of militia activities which disrupted oil exploration,” he stated adding that top security experts including the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Abubakar will be resource persons for the summit now rescheduled for late January next year.

Bassey in the statement said that the rescheduling of the summit was due to last minute constraints suffered by the organizers and regretted the inconveniences the postponement will cause the invited participants.
