DELTA STATE HAVE NOT BENEFIT ANYTHING FROM NDDC SEEN 20 YEARS AGO SAID BY FEMI GBAJABIAMILA.
Delta state have not benefit anything from The Niger Delta Development Commission(NDDC) seen it was established 20 years ago said by The Speaker Of The House Of Representatives known as Femi Gbajabiamila.
According to the news, during an investigation hearing the alleged financial mismanagement in the NDDC, The speaker of the house of Representives Femi Gbajabiamila said that the people of Niger Delta are yet not benefit from the Commission which was established 20 years ago.
In the over two decades since, that promise has not been kept, despite its critical importance and the vast sums that have been appropriated by the federal Government of the Niger Delta of Nigeria.
Continues to score exceptionally low on many of the major human development indices,
Some statistics reflect the reality of disease and deprivation, lack of opportunity and broken dreams that is the plight of many of our fellow citizens in the region. It therefore particularly disturbing and quite frankly, embarrassing that every other news report about the niger Delta Development Commission(NDDC) seems to centre around escalating allegations corruption and malfeasance.
The purpose of this investigatiive hearing is to ask why the failure persists and to do so with a determination to understand the causes of that failure so that the pariliment can act to redeem the NDDC and remove those factors that imperil the commission noble mission.
We will examine the negative of corruption and malfeasance that have dogged that commission, we will do so with neither fear nor favour, confident in the assurance that we have both a constitution duty and moral obligation to ensure that the enormous sums of money appropriated accounted for by those who responsiblity it has been to manage this important and all too essential public trust.
