Owerri, the Imo State capital is set to play host to Tee Mac, Hilda Dokubo and Monalisa Chinda as the trio attend the 5th Edition of the Niger Delta Development Forum (NDDF) slated for October, 19 and 20, 2016.
The 2016 NDDF sponsored by the Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND), in collaboration with the Imo state government and Market Development for the Niger Delta (DAI -MADE) is themed – Towards Self-Sustaining Development in the Niger Delta: Narrating and Showcasing a Re-Imagined Niger Delta.
As Niger Deltans, the trio have contributed immensely to the development of the region and have been instrumental in highlighting the challenges faced by the inhabitants of the region.
Tee Mac, Nigeria’s multi-talented maestro Concert Flutist with cross-cultural Itsekiri and Swiss roots, has for years, been deeply involved in promoting dialogue in the Niger delta.
His efforts culminated in his being awarded the Member of the Federal Republic (MFR) national honor by President Umar Musa Yar’adua in 2009 for his vital role in brokering peace with the Niger Delta militants and fighting for their rehabilitation.
