The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) will continue to prioritize the institution of concrete infrastructures to open up communities in the region for sustainable development.
The Managing Director, Dr. Christian Oboh disclosed this during an inspection tour of the Commission’s on-going projects in Delta State.
Represented by the Delta State Representative on the NDDC Board, Chief Solomon Ogba, Dr. Oboh noted that the huge socio-economic benefit that will accrue to the region on completion of various projects, including the linking of communities will further stimulate economic activities.
He said the present Board was mindful of the peculiar challenges the Niger Delta environment poses for the people, hence the commitment to complete on-going projects in the region.
“The completion of on-going reclamation and shore protection in Okerenkoko of Delta State designed to check ocean surge is a priority”; the Managing Director who also visited the 16 kilometer Kurote-gbaranmatu road with four bridges as well as Ugborode shore protection project said.
The Commission, Dr. Oboh maintained will continue to be prudent in the application of resources with a view to ensuring value for money assuring that only competent contractors will remain in the saddle in the execution of NDDC projects across the region.
