South-South Governors Declare Support For Buhari Over Forensic Audit Of NDDC

By Chinenye Festus:-
In a statement by the chairman of the forum and governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, the forum said it was convinced that the audit would serve to put the NDDC on a sound corporate governance footing and reposition it to better deliver on its mandate. The governors also gave full backing to the ongoing investigation of the commission by the Senate.
The governors, however, condemned what it called the attempted abduction of former acting managing director of the commission, Joi Nunieh, in the early hours of Thursday, July 16, saying it was unwarranted.
You would recall that President Muhammadu Buhari in a statement by its special assistant on Media and publicity, Garba Shehu on Thursday, July 16 expressed his strong determination to get to the root of the problem undermining the development of the Niger Delta and its peoples in spite of enormous national resources voted year after year for this singular purpose.
Shehu further stated that the president also directed timely sharing of information and knowledge in a way to speedily assist the administration to diagnose what had gone wrong in the past and what needs to be done to make corrections in order to return the NDDC to its original mandate of making life better for people in Niger Delta.
