Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, the Governor of Delta State Speaks up on the Current Crisis Surrounding the NDDC

The Governor of Delta State, Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa in a tweet said that after due consultations with the other governors, the South-South Governors Forum wishes to categorically state that we wholeheartedly support the forensic audit of the NDDC as ordered by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari.

He says him alongside my brothers, the governors of the other South-South states, I have been monitoring the crisis in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) that has taken front and center stage in the national news but they believe that the audit will help to reposition the NDDC to better deliver on its mandate for the good people of the Niger Delta region.

In his statement he condemned the attempted abduction of Mrs Joi Nunieh, the immediate past Acting MD of the Commission, yesterday.

Citing that it was unwarranted, unnecessary, and uncalled for.

They also called on all the relevant security authorities to investigate the incident and that it should also be on record that we are neither in support of nor against any of the actors in this controversy.
