Niger Delta Youths Urge Buhari to Inaugurate Screened NDDC Board

Niger Delta Youth Coalition (NDYC), a coalition of youth associations of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to inaugurate the Senate-confirmed Governing Board of the Commission following the completion of the forensic audit as has been confirmed by the Minister of Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio

NDYC Secretary, Okon Udo Archibong and Publicity Secretary, Uche Onyema, stated that while receiving in audience, members of the NDDC Forensic Audit Security Committee, led by Admiral Bamidele Oluwagbamila, in his office on Monday, Sen. Akpabio confirmed that the forensic audit of the NDDC, on which account the board nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate on November 5, 2019, was put on hold, has been concluded and the report of the forensic audit is now ready to be submitted to President Buhari.

The Coalition on President Buhari to “follow through on his promise and inaugurate the Board that he appointed for the Commission.” According to them, since the inauguration of the Board was put on hold in November 2019, the NDDC has been run by Interim Managements and a sole administrator who have been utilising the funds of the Commission without any significant development projects commissioned in the constituent states in the last two years. “Our people have suffered untold neglect from the absence of representation in management,” the group noted.
