Port Harcourt — The Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, on Thursday, approved the shutting down of the commission for two weeks, with immediate effect.
The Commission also enjoined all staff to go into self-isolation for two weeks and awaits further directives from management.
The shutting down may not be unconnected to the death of NDDC Director of Finance and Administration, Bassey Ettang Ibanga, who reportedly died today from complications suspected to be linked to coronavirus.
An internal memo signed by an official of the commission, Silas Anyanwu, on behalf of the managementn said all activities in the commission including ongoing matters are shut down for the main time.
Anyanwu in the statement further directed the Head of Security to ensure safety and security of the commission, while Director of Administration is requested to ensure fumigation and decontamination of all offices and premises in the headquarters during the period.
