A statement signed by NDYC national coordinator, Engr.

According to the statement, the new director of international relations will operate from the international desks of the Niger Delta Youth Council in UK.

“Comr Collins Ufuoma Achakpekri has been charged with the responsibility of managing the interest of all youths from all ethnic nationalities in the Niger Delta region and to also liaison with the various High Commissions overseas.
