President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the recomposition of the Dr. Pius Odubu-led Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
The President also validated the existence of the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the commission led by Dr Joi Nunieh. The new twist at the NDDC was contained in a statement on Thursday morning by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr. Femi Adesina.
According to the statement, the supervisory power over the commission would continue rest with the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs. The President also informed that the IMC of the commission would function until the forensic audit of the accounts and activities of the commission, which he ordered earlier in the year, is completed.
