BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari has said her priority is to actualize President Buhari’s development vision for the Niger Delta region.
She said this on Tuesday in Port Harcourt when the outgoing Managing Director, Bassey Dan-Abia handed over to her at the commission’s headquarters.
Her words: “I have in-depth knowledge of what the commission ought to be doing in terms of development. I understand what our challenges are. It is now time for me to do my part.
“I have a responsibility to God and to President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that his vision for the Niger Delta comes to pass. Because I am yet to get briefing from the directors. I cannot make a clear policy statement. But I will do what the President wants, which is the development of the region. We will hit the road running.”
She also commended the out going MD, Dan-Abia for his efforts in the commission, adding that he has done well as the MD of the NDDC.
