Following the trailing controversy over uncompleted projects by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), the Rivers State Governor, NyesomEzenwoWike has called for greater inputs of states in the conception and execution of key projects by the commission.

In a statement signed by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu, the Governor was speaking on Wednesday at the Government House, Port Harcourt when the Senate Committee on Niger Delta paid him a courtesy call. According to Wike, the inputs from states in the region would reduce the incidents of duplication of projects by the states and the NDDC.

He said: “It is important for states to make inputs, so that necessary projects are executed by the NDDC.”

He regretted that there are several abandoned projects under the NDDC. He advised the Senate Committee on Niger Delta and the NDDC to take steps to end the era of abandoned projects.

The governor called for the allocation of funds for the completion of the East-West road which cuts across the entire states of the South-South region.

He said it is too early to assess the tenure of the Acting Managing Director of the NDDC, MrsIbimSemenitari, since she has spent a short time at the commission.

In his remarks, Senate Committee Chairman on Niger Delta, Senator Peter Nwaoboshi said the committee was in the state to investigate the NDDC from its inception to date.
