Niger Delta youth want Buhari to confirm Brambaifa substantive NDDC MD

-

- Advertisment -

A Niger
Delta-based youth organisation, Advocates for Good Governance has called on
President Muhammadu Buhari to ignore critics and confirm the acting Managing
Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) Professor Nelson
Brambaifa as substantive MD.

Coordinator
of the group, Mr. Briggs Lokpobiri in a statement said the organisation has
observed a consistent and orchestrated campaign by some recruited elements to
tarnish the image and discredit the efforts of Prof Brambaifa who has
repositioned the commission to attain its statutory mandates in the past few
months.

He said the
ultimate aim of the sinister plot is to rob Bayelsa state of its rightful
opportunity to produce the substantive managing director of the commission,
saying: “that is why the youth group and indeed the entire youth of the region
call on the president to do the needful by confirming Brambaifa as the
substantive managing director of the commission without further delay.

“We appeal
to Mr. President to ignore whoever that is calling for Brambaifa’s removal. We
are calling on the youth, elders, and ancestors of the state to fight against
those who are opposing his confirmation as the substantive managing director of
the commission.

“The entire
leadership of Bayelsa state must close ranks and line up behind him to succeed.
Bayelsans should know that should this slot slip away from us, we will have no
other persons to blame than ourselves. This is our slot. This is our turn to
produce the next Managing Director of NDDC.

“After
Rivers and Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa is next in line as the highest producer of oil in
the entire country.

“In the last
couple of months of his being at the helm of affairs of the NDDC, Brambaifa has
demonstrated his unalloyed commitment to the mission and vision of the commission
by his words and deeds,” he said.
