NDDC Planning To Deceive Buhari With Road Commissioning – Activists
Niger Delta activists have faulted the move by the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to inaugurate the 29km Ogbia-Nembe Road in Bayelsa State describing it as a ploy to deceive the Presidency.
The activists under the auspices of the Niger Delta Rights Advocates (NDRA) said the invitation sent to President Muhammadu Buhari by the Keme Pondei-led IMC for inauguration of the road project done by erstwhile management of NDDC was diversionary. Spokesperson of NDRA, Darlington Nwauju, said though government is continuum, the case of Pondei-led team was different because it was a ploy to trick the people of the region.
He said: “Whereas there are a plethora of uncompleted and abandoned projects which the IMC could lay hands on to deliver to the people of the region, including the Headquarters project which the Prof Pondei team had made so much media noise about; the NDRA considers the attempt by Prof. Pondei and his team as a ploy to dig into their bag of tricks to continue to put the people of the region in confusion while he and his co-travellers continue in the sharing bazaars.
