Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) and leaders of ethnic nationalities in the Niger Delta region, have lauded President Bola Ahmed Tinubu over the reappointment of Dr Samuel Ogbuku as the managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
The Niger Delta ethnic leaders also applauded the appointment of Barr. Chiedu Ebie, as chairman of the board of the NDDC and other appointees of Niger Delta extraction.
This was contained in an open letter addressed to Tinubu, which was signed by PANDEF national chairman, Senator Emmanuel Bok Essien, president of Ijaw National Congress (INC), Professor Benjamin Okaba and the leader, Coalition of Niger Delta Women, Lady Annkio Briggs, a copy of which was made available to LEADERSHIP in Port Harcourt yesterday.
The leaders thanked the president for retaining the NDDC boss, who had exhibited notable competency within the short period he was in charge before the dissolution of the commission’s board.
The letter reads in part, “It behooves on us, as appreciative Niger Delta people, to express our profound gratitude by publicly thanking you Mr. President, for your kind gestures.
“It is also worthy of mention how elated we are for the caliber of individuals you assembled for the new board. This has given us high hopes in the future of the Niger Delta.”
It described the NDDC board chairman, Ebie, as a man with enormous wealth of experience, key player in the oil and gas sector with credible antecedents, one who cares about the development of the region.
It noted that Ogbuku’s reappointment would bring sustainable partnership, engender global best practices and corporate governance in a bid to reposition the commission for global business acceptability.
