Others are the governors of Baylesa, Mr Seriake Dickson, and Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

Apart from the governors, the Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff and the Inspector General of Police are also in attendance.

The Federal Government is set to de-escalate military operations in the Niger Delta region to pave way for dialogue with the militant groups.

It will include the Petroleum Minister himself, the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Usani Uguru, select thoughts leaders and influential individuals from the Niger Delta region.
