Wike endorses NDDC’s interim management committee

Rivers Governor, Chief Nyeson Wike, has endorsed the newly inaugurated Interim Management Committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission, (NDDC).
Wike spoke at the Government House, Port Harcourt during a courtesy visit by members of NDDC’s new management, led by the Acting Managing Director, Dr. Joi Nunieh.
The NDDC chief 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 interim 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.
“The Members of the Interim Management Committee are all from the Niger Delta region. So, why can’t we support them?
“The governors of the Niger Delta States met with President Muhammadu Buhari. We told him that there must be a surgical operation in NDDC. So, we support the forensic audit as ordered by the President.”
Rivers governor also stated that the fight over political appointments by Niger Delta people was unnecessary, noting that what the people needed was development.
He said: “I feel ashamed that our people cannot come together and agree on development strategies.
