Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, and the six Governors of the South South geo-political zone will today storm Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, as the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), under the leadership of Edwin Kiagbodo Clark will hold what it calls a “mega rally to demand the restructuring of the Nigerian federation.”

The rally, billed to kick off by 9:00 am, will hold at the Grand Pavilion and Boat Club, Ox-bow Lake, Swali, Yenagoa. Themed, “Restructuring The Nigerian Federation,” PANDEF insists that the 2019 general election is a referendum on Restructuring Nigeria and called on the Federal Government to restructure the federation before the 2019 polls.

A press statement signed by TKO Okorotie, Chairman of Media/Publicity of the rally, named the former DG NSO, A.K. Horsfall as Chairman of the occasion, while the Royal Father of the Day is King Edmund Daukoru, the Amayanabo of Nembe.

Chief Okorotie also said the former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, the six South South Governors and all former Governors of the South-South, serving and former ministers, chairmen, CEOs and members of boards and parastatals are special guests of honour. Others are current and former National Assembly members, all current and former Speakers and members of Houses of Assembly of the South-South.

They also enjoined Afenifere, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Arewa, Middle Belt Forum, the clergy, traditional rulers and the general public to attend the rally.
