We’re not at loggerheads with Ogbuku’s NDDC – APC NWC

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has debunked reports of loggerheads between its members and the Dr. Samuel Ogbuku-led Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Members of the committee led by their vice-chairman South-South, Chief Victor Giadom, spoke on Tuesday when they visited the NDDC Managing Director, Dr. Samuel Ogbuku at the commission’s headquarters in Port Harcourt.

Giadom applauded the Governing Board and Management of NDDC over its achievements and recent inauguration of landmark projects in the region.

He urged the NDDC Board and Management to shun all distractions, especially from politicians, and continue to work in peace and harmony to bring sustainable development to the region.

 “As the Chairman of the APC Working Committee, Southsouth Zone, I want to commend the NDDC Board and Management for the series of commissioning done so far and its good impact in the lives of the Niger Delta people.

“We are here to build synergy with NDDC and get first-hand information to be in a good position to tell the entire world what NDDC is doing to fast-track the development of the Niger Delta region,” he said.

APC National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Felix Morka, acknowledged what he described as the tremendous achievements of the current leadership of the NDDC, saying members of the national working committee of the party were impressed by the recent inauguration of various impactful projects across the Niger Delta region.

He frowned at some sponsored reports that erroneously gave the impression that some members of the NWC of APC were not satisfied with the performance of the commission and described as the handiwork of misguided and self-centered politicians, the reports that members of the NWC were at loggerheads with Ogbuku over his refusal to intimate the party about the agenda of the commission for the region.

Morka said that contrary to the mischievous allegations, the NDDC had been working closely with the party to advance the Renewed Hope Agenda of the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.

In his remarks, Ogbuku assured the delegation that the commission would not relent in implementing the Renewed Hope Agenda of the federal government.
