A venture, Destiny Lottery Limited, in Rivers State has tasked the New Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission, Mr. Nsima Ekere, to concentrate on the development of the region.
The Chairman of the venture, General Ebi, who spoke in Port Harcourt, added that the region needed development and not excuses from the MD.
Ebi commanded the immediate past Acting Managing Director of NDDC, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, for her performance in repositioning the commission in its mandate to the region.
Ebi noted that before Semenitari’s regime contractors and the people of the region had lost hope in NDDC, adding that people were interested in development and not politics.
He said Semenitari restored peoples’ confidence on NDDC noting that several projects were executed with a high level of transparency.
Ebi said, “There is need for the new Managing Director Hon, Nsima Ekere to sustain the legacy which Semenitari has laid. The people of Niger Delta need development and not excuses.
He, however, expressed appreciation to President Mohammadu Buhari for the opportunity he had given to Semenitari, stating that the new board under Ekere would do better.
