The Executive Secretary of a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), known as Grassroots Development Foundation, Mr. Blossom Akpuluma says the people of Rivers, Bayelsa share things in common.

Mr. Akpuluma made this known while chatting with newsmen in Port Harcourt. Hear him: "I want to tell you that the people of Rivers and Bayelsa are the same. The talk about boundary adjustment is much ado about nothing. I don't see any difference between the people of the two states. As I am concerned, I expect calmness on the issue of boundary adjustment. I am sure that things are going to be done in the normal way"
Mr. Akpuluma expressed optimism that in no distant future, the people of the Niger Delta will be prosperous, if the youths of the two states begin to look at things from the perspective of peace, stressing that the volatile nature of the Niger Delta and incessant violence will not only undermine the developmental strides of their governors but will keep them in political limbo from other youths of the federation. The PDP stalwart maintained that what is needed at the moment is better understanding and co-operation between the people of the two states.

On the issue of resources control he said: "The issue of resources control has come to be because it is an agitation for equitable distribution of social justice, and I will continue to support the position of the South-South delegates at the Confab".

Akpuluma assured that his NGO was poised to ensure that the people of Bayelsa state are emancipated from political and economic manipulations and creating political awareness in the state.
