NDDC Spent ₦10bn To Remove Me As Governor – Wike

  • Wike accused the Presidency and the National Assembly of meddling in the affairs of the commission

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has accused the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) of plotting to oust him from his position as the state’s helmsman.

While addressing the Senate Committee on Niger Delta when they visited him in Port Harcourt, Wike said it is sad that the NDDC has been hijacked by political actors using the commission for their selfish interest.

According to him, the Commission is failing to perform because they have placed politics above the interest of the people.

“What NDDC does through the supervision of their party is to make sure they vote out some money to ensure certain governors do not return.

“You can imagine NDDC wasting ten billion to remove me here, is the money not wasted now?….. NDDC wasted ten billion naira to remove just one governor,” Wike stated.

The governor also alleged that the NDDC is poorly performing because the presidency and the National Assembly will not allow the commission to carry out its duties judiciously.

He also noted that people from the Southsouth have not helped in making the NDDC do the work for which it was created, in that the Niger Delta people have become enemies to themselves.
