Dr. Samuel Ogbuku, the Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, has stated that President Bola Tinubu has urged the commission to intensify its efforts in developing the Niger Delta region and making a positive impact on the lives of its inhabitants.

Ogbuku made this announcement during an interactive session held at the commission’s headquarters in Port Harcourt, where he revealed that he received “new directives” from the President during his recent visit to the Presidential Villa in Abuja. The statement was released by the commission’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Ibitoye Abosede.

Ogbuku further explained that the President expressed dissatisfaction with the level of underdevelopment in the Niger Delta region and the performance of the NDDC as an organization tasked with intervening in the region’s oil-rich areas.

Tinubu criticized the mismanagement of resources in the Niger Delta and instructed the management team to return to the Commission and work towards transforming it into a new and improved NDDC. Ogbuku emphasized that Tinubu was keen on repositioning the NDDC to ensure that it operated in the best interests of the region’s people, saying, “I made a pledge to President Tinubu that all resources at the Commission’s disposal would be judiciously utilised to increase and improve the impact of the NDDC in the region.”

The statement partly read, “Speaking further, the NDDC MD clarified that it was only the NDDC Governing Board that was dissolved by the directive of the Federal Government, while the commission’s management team, consisting of the NDDC’s Managing Director, the Executive Director Finance and Administration as well as the Executive Director Projects remained intact.

“He announced that the commission was planning to engage a multinational professional services consultant, KPMG to help the Commission set up a viable and sustainable Corporate Governance structure.”
