Federal government inaugurates interim management committee for NDDC

The Federal Government has inaugurated a three-man Interim Management Committee to oversee the affairs of the Niger Delta Development Commission.
The Interim Management Committee according to the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio would be in place to create the enabling environment for the upcoming forensic audit.
The Minister said that the forensic audit as ordered by President Buhari would cover 18 years of NDDC’s operations between 2001- 2019, adding that there would be ten slots of auditing firms, and each State would be assigned one slot while the NDDC Headquarters slot would be the coordinating slot.
Akpabio however, urged the Interim Committee to discharge their duties effectively and efficiently without fear or favour noting that the people of the Niger Delta region and indeed the whole country reposed confidence in them in overseeing the affairs of the Commission as an interventionist agency to work towards alleviating the plight of the people of the Niger Delta region.
