President Buhari commissions ultramodern NDDC Headquarters

President Muhammadu has commissioned the ultramodern Niger Delta Development Commission’s (NDDC) headquarters in Port Harcourt, 25 years after the building commenced.
The President, who joined the commissioning ceremony virtually from the Council Chamber of the State House in Abuja, commended the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, for steadfastness in ending many years of renting by the commission, and the attendant profligacy.
He recalled that the land on which the NDDC building now stands was acquired by the Oil Mineral Producing Areas Development Commission (OMPADEC) in 1996, and was abandoned after series of design amendments.
The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs noted that the completion of the NDDC building signals the President’s commitment to the development of the oil-producing region, and ending of activities of corrupt public officials, who also negated the connection of the offices to the national grid over many years in order to seek rent on fueling of generators.
