NDC demands immediate constitution of NDDC Board

The  Niger  Delta  Congress (NDC) calls  for  the  immediate  constitution  of  the  Niger  Delta  Development Commission (NDDC) board to enable the board meet the urgent needs of Niger Delta communities.

In a release issued by spokesman of the group, Adokiye Oyagiri, he also said that the group condemned “the criminality that has pervaded the NDDC”.

The statement read, “Since the beginning  of  this  administration,  the  Niger  Delta  peoples  have  at  different  points  called  for  the constitution of the NDDC board, but these calls have conveniently gone unheeded, and instead this present administration has opted to use the NDDC as a source of funds for its political battles.

“In doing this, it has continued to put in place as leadership of the board pliant, corrupt, and acquiescent persons from the region under different designations while competent Niger Deltans are conveniently ignored.

“The Niger Delta peoples while condemning the criminality that has pervaded the NDDC, refuse to bedragged into the present show of shame that has been encouraged and ably supervised by the Buhari-led administration since 2015.

“The Niger Delta Congress uses this opportunity to commend the Ijaw and Itsekiri people of the region who held a press conference on the 12th of July agreeing to put up a united front as regards the Niger Delta struggle.

“The NDC consequently supports the demands made by the Ijaw and Itsekiri people at the press conference, which includes the immediate approval of the Deep Sea Port and Gas Revolution Industrial Park in Delta State, and the relocation of the headquarters of oil prospecting companies to the Niger Delta.

“The Niger Delta Congress urges other ethnic nationalities of the Niger Delta region to understand the importance of the unity of the region going forward in the success of the peoples’ struggle, and encourages them to continue to organise across ethnic divides for this purpose.”
