Group commends Senate for passing N1.9trn NDDC budget

The Movement for the Survival of the Izon Ethnic Nationality in the Niger Delta (MOSIEND) has hailed the Senate for passing the N1.9 trillion budget of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) for the 2024 fiscal year.

MOSIEND, in a statement by its National President, Mr Kennedy Tonjo-West, said the speedy consideration and passage of the Bill by the Senate showed that the federal lawmakers have the interest of the people of the Niger Delta at heart.

Tonjo-West expressed the belief that, “With the passage of the 2024 Budget christened Budget of Renewed Hope, the NDDC will see to the completion of ongoing projects, initiate some more projects and programmes that will transform the region and better the lives of its people.

“We commend the tireless efforts of the current Managing Director, Dr Samuel Ogbuku, and his team for committing to addressing the teething developmental issues of the Niger Delta and pray that the new budget which the communities consider timely will birth a new dawn in the region.

“MOSIEND is pleased with the achievements of Dr Ogbuku especially in the areas of infrastructure, human capital development and the continuous stakeholders’ engagement where the people of the region now make input to issues bordering on the development of their communities.

“We urge the state governors, national and state legislators and chairmen of local government councils to join the NDDC management as partners.”

The MOSIEND national president added that, “With this passage, we expect a remarkable difference and lofty ideas that will stimulate development across the region and help in completing some of the well thought projects littered across the states which the NDDC is doing for the Niger Delta people.

“We also call on President Tinubu to see to the release of all monies owed the NDDC so that they can pay contractors and also execute more projects that will support his developmental agenda for the region.

“We also use this opportunity to again appreciate President Tinubu for appointing an NDDC Board made up of sound technocrats who know their onions, who have been tested and know what the Niger Delta truly needs and are constantly engaging with the people on projects and programmes.

“We strongly urge Niger Deltans and all well-meaning individuals across the country to support the Dr Samuel Ogbuku led administration to succeed and not become clogs in the wheel of progress.”
