The Niger-Delta Development Commission being established to tackle ecological problems arising from exploration of oil minerals in the Niger-Delta area and development of Member States has been characterized with politics of who becomes the next Chairman and MD of the commission since the dissolution of the board by the President Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Several quarters had been agitating on different bases why the top positions be zoned to their states. The attention of the leadership of the Council has however been drawn to a group led by one Almustapha Asuku rooting for the MD of the Commission to be zoned to Ondo State, in guise of being the President National Youth Council of Nigeria.
Setting the record straight, the National Youth Council of Nigeria is under the leadership of Amb Sukubo SaraIgbe Sukubo as Presudent, therefore the group who had issued statement in the name of the council lacks capacity to have done such, are impostors looking for unmerited glory.
The NDDC is established by an act with clear provision for membership and rotation of position, President Buhari is well guided under the ambit of the law to choose an MD for the commission. The National Youth Council hereby implore the Mr President to be just and fair in the appointment of heads and member of the NDDC board.
