The national coordinator of Niger Delta Youth Council, Engr. Jator Abido, is calling on youths in the Niger Delta region to begin to tow the path of peace, saying the region has been enmeshed in a series of crisis which he said, has impeded its progress.
Noting that Niger Delta has seen enough violence which impact, he says, has been detrimental to the development and growth of the region.
His position comes against the backdrop of planned protest by the youths against the Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, over allegations bodering on unilateral decisions which, they noted, was segregational to them.

According to him, peace is an inevitable part of social and economic development in any society.
