Mkpoikana Udoma 06 September 2017, Port Harcourt – The Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, has re-stated its commitment to delivering quality projects that will add value to the lives of the people in Akwa Ibom State.
The Managing Director of the commission, Mr. Nsima Ekere, in Uyo, said the commission had intervened on many roads in the state, thereby touching the lives of the people positively.
Ekere debunked reports that the commission was at loggerheads with the Akwa Ibom State Government over the execution of development projects.
He cited the occasion where the Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Works, Mr. Ephraim Inyangeyen, joined NDDC officials to inspect roads at Ewet Housing Estate in Uyo being executed by the commission.
According to him, “We intervene in areas where the state government does not cover. The NDDC is not antagonistic towards the Akwa Ibom State Government.
“On the contrary, the commissioner for Works, Akwa Ibom State, Ephraim Inyangeyen, had in the past joined our team in inspecting projects.”
Ekere, who was represented by the NDDC Commissioner for Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Samuel Frank, called for partnership between the agency and the media to ensure sustainable development of the Niger Delta region.
