Return NDDC to Presidency, Ovie of Idjerhe Kingdom tells Buhari

A paramount ruler in Niger Delta, His Royal Majesty, King Obukowho Whiskey, has re­newed the call for President Muhammadu Buhari to return the supervision of the Niger Delta Development Commis­sion (NDDC) to the Presidency for proper monitoring of the agency.

King Whiskey, Udurhie I, Ovie of Idjerhe Kingdom, in Ethiope West Local Govern­ment Area of Delta State, in a letter to President Muhamma­du Buhari, stressed the need for the President to inaugurate the NDDC Board already screened and cleared by the Senate, in­stead of the newly appointed Sole Administrator.

King Whiskey, in the letter dated March 12, 2021, made available to newsmen, maintained that the position of Sole Administrator was illegal and strange to the NDDC Es­tablishment Act, stressing that President Buhari should rath­er inaugurate the already ap­proved board under the chair­manship of Dr. Pius Odubu, with Olorogun Bernard Okum­agba as the Managing Director.

He stated that having tried the use of the Interim Man­agement Committees (IMCs), which he said was also illegal and strange to the NDDC Estab­lishment Act, the best option for the president would have been the inauguration of the board.
