Ex-militant leaders hail NDDC’s project director Adjogbe

Some ex-agitators in the Niger Delta, under the aegis of National Assembly of Niger Delta Ex-militants, (NANDE), have hailed the commitment and professionalism of the Nsima Ekere-led management of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

NANDE’s National Coordinator Edwin Ekpekumemu  spoke for the ex-agitators after a meeting of its leaders and youths in Benin City, Edo State capital.

Expressing confidence in the management, NANDE lauded the All Progressives Congress-(APC)-led Federal Government for assembling thoroughbred professionals, who place high premium on integrity and best global practice.

Specifically, it noted that the Executive Director, Project (EDP), Sam Adjogbe, has championed the mantra of due diligence in NDDC, with his zero tolerance for sharp practice.

NANDE said the tradition of extortion and underhand dealings by youths and other individuals have given way to equity and good conscience as a driving force pioneered by the Urhobo-born engineer.

Ekpekumemu noted that besides, contracts now go through painstaking professional examination on the basis of merit under the most transparent process.

Giving kudos once again to President Muhammadu Buhari for giving Niger Deltans hope through this appointment and others, NANDE urged the Federal Government to empower the management to deliver on its mandate.

Since coming on board, the Ekere-led team has instilled decency in the process of contract award and execution, with Adjogbe as arrowhead.

But this due process has drawn flak from those who still crave the old order in NDDC.

NANDE warns disgruntled ex-militants and others, especially Eshanekpe Israel, against distracting the management for their selfish interest and demands.

“We know the self-acclaimed ex-agitators, whose hallmark is extortion and blackmailing our leaders in the region to do their bidding. This, the EDP is resisting as a man of good conscience, and we implore him to de-emphasise questionable characters, who have no place in this new dispensation of value rebirth in the commission.’’
