NDDC now a fund raising commission for politicians who want to run for election- Nyesom Wike

Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, says the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC, has deviated from its mandate and has now been turned into a fund raising commission for politicians who want to run for elections. According to Wike, NDDC, the commission's focus on politics, rather than the development of Niger Delta, has made it a cesspit of corruption where resources are diverted to fund political projects...


He said this when he received the US ambassador William Symington, in his office.
"NDDC is a fund raising commission for politicians who want to run for elections. The rerun elections in Rivers State were funded by the NDDC for the APC. The way NDDC is structured, it will not work. There is so much corruption in NDDC because board members are working to amass wealth to contests elections in their various states. The Managing Director of NDDC is amassing wealth to contest the governorship election in Akwa Ibom State. If the Federal Government wants NDDC to work, why appoint a Managing director who plans to contest the governorship election of his state? Why not appoint a technocrat?" Governor Wike asked
