I Met About 30 Directorates As Against 13 Provided For In NDDC Act – Ogbuku


The Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Dr Samuel Ogbuku, has said that he met about 30 Directorates as against the 13 provided for in the Act establishing the Commission.

He said that on assumption of duties, the current Executive Management realised that the Commission was working with many Directorates with overlapping functions, adding that many of the Directorates were not created to enhance the service delivery of the Commission but were set up for some ethnic and political interests.

In an interactive session with journalists at the Commission’s headquarters in Port Harcourt, Ogbuku stated that establishing an effective and sustainable Corporate Governance system as well as Key Performance Indicators, KPI’s in the Commission will be a game changer for the Commission. He noted that having an effective Corporate Governance system in place was key to the future successes and sustainability of the NDDC.

The NDDC Chief Executive Officer affirmed that the Commission was laying a solid foundation for impactful development of the Niger Delta region; strengthening Public-Private Partnerships and ensuring that its projects and programmes were aligned with the needs and aspirations of the people of the region.

He said: “In the past six months, NDDC has been engaged in building a sustainable foundation to ensure that we run on a smooth and right track. We are working to put in place a Corporate Governance System that will enable the Commission run in accordance with global best practices.
