Dikio who spoke at a Stakeholder gathering in Yenagoa Wednesday, November 18,2020 to seek understanding and to reposition the beleaguered Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration, DDR programme in the Niger Delta noted that:
‘This approach of protest, protest is antithetical to the progress of the region. We have to find creative ways of bringing back business to the region’.
The interim administrator who is on a Niger Delta wide tour themed, ‘Back To The Region Tour’, in responding to the myriad of concerns about the beleaguered programme which is thumbed down for the culture of fraud, including a scheme of corruption that allegedly led to the mass looting of the Vocational Training Centre, Kaiama, in February 2019 promised to return the programme to its Niger Delta focus and concentration on training and empowerment programmes.
