Prof. Kemebradikumo Pondei, Acting Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), has promised sweeping changes in the commission.
The committee was set up by Buhari to help create an “enabling environment” for the forensic audit of the commission’s finances and contracts starting from 2001.
According to Pondei, NDDC will soon be reorganised to enhance its service delivery and reduce sufferings of the people.
“We need to have quality assurance and measurable performance indicators in every unit and department of NDDC.
“I am a problem solver by training, and as such, pray that members of the IMC will work together to solve problems.
The managing director said that Buhari was passionate about welfare of Niger Delta people, hence his decision to adopt new strategies in tackling problems of the region.
“Buhari decided that since we have done the same thing, using the same method and getting the same result, that it was time to try something different.
“To this end, members of the new IMC have resolved to work together as an indivisible team. We also need to work in harmony with NDDC management and staff.
“Feelers from members of the public show that NDDC staff were seen as contributing to problems of the region,” he said. (NAN)
