Stop protesting new appointment at NDDC, Niger Delta leaders urged

Prominent leaders of nine states in the Niger-Delta region have been urged to stop sponsoring protests against the appointment of Effiong Akwa as the sole administrator of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

President Muhammadu Buhari had recently appointed Akwa after it dissolved the Interim Management Committee of the commission following the alleged financial impropriety that rocked the commission. A series of protests had also greeted the appointment.

Addressing journalists in Abuja weekend, Deputy National Coordinator of the Niger Delta Support Groups for Buhari, Caroline Nagbo, appealed to all political leaders and other leaders in the region to allow peace to reign while awaiting the outcome of forensic audits ordered by the president.

“Akwa is to assist the Auditors to achieve their aim and it is on record that his tenure will end once the auditors conclude their assignment and a report presented to the Federal Executive Council. This is why what he deserves is more of support to achieve the assignment given to him than condemnations,” she said.
