Federal Government Urges NDDC Board to Implement Forensic Audit Recommendations

The Federal Government has directed the newly appointed board and management of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to ensure the faithful implementation of recommendations outlined in the forensic audit report.

Speaking at a two-day NDDC retreat in Ikot Ekpene LGA of Akwa Ibom State, the Minister of Niger Delta Development, Engr. Abubakar Momoh emphasized the importance of addressing factors hindering development in the region to achieve sustainable progress.

Momoh highlighted the completion of the forensic audit and the ongoing implementation of its recommendations, including the formation of a new board.

He urged the new leadership to diligently execute their tasks in line with the President’s “Renewed Hope agenda.”

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the NDDC, Dr. Samuel Ogbuku, appealed for the commission to be removed from the Treasury Single Account framework, citing challenges faced under the current financial structure.

Ogbuku stressed the need for increased autonomy in financial management to expedite project delivery and ensure timely execution, while still maintaining transparency goals.

In response, the Chairman of the NDDC governing board, Mr. Chiedu Ebie, highlighted the objective of the 2024 Retreat, aimed at aligning the commission with the President’s agenda for renewed hope.

He emphasized the importance of effective leadership and collaboration in achieving development goals in the Niger Delta region.

The retreat aims to foster constructive collaboration and mutual respect among board members and management staff, with a focus on leaving a lasting legacy of development and improvement in the region.
