Niger Delta ex-agitators, under the aegis of Niger Delta Development Movement, NDDM, has commended the Federal Government for directing oil multinationals to relocate their headquarters to the Niger Delta region, adding that the directive would facilitate development in the oil-rich region.

“There is no more bombings in the area. All the militia groups have sheathe their sword, so the Federal Government should take the advantage of the current peace to expedite the development of the area” he said
