The Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyeson Wike, has endorsed the Interim Management Committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, inaugurated on November 5 by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
Governor Wike spoke yesterday during a courtesy visit at the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt, by members of the new management, led by the NDDC Acting Managing Director, Gbene Dr Joi Nunieh.
The NDDC Chief Executive Officer was accompanied by the Acting Executive Director, Finance and Administration, Chief Ibanga Bassey Etang; the Acting Executive Director, Projects, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh and other directors of the Commission.
Wike congratulated members of the Management Committee, stating: “As a true Rivers person, I cannot do anything that is against the interest of Rivers State. Political affiliations come secondary. What matters to me is the development of Rivers State.
He declared: “The governors of the Niger Delta States met with Mr. President. We told him that there must be a surgical operation in NDDC. So we support the forensic audit as ordered by the President.”
