Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Sen. Godswill Akpabio has come out to say that the activities of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC are now very transparent.

He recently revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s support has aided the restoration of the missing transparency in the Commission while repositioning it to fulfill its purpose to Nigerians.

According to him, NDDC has done a lot since its establishment in Nigeria in 1960, and its impact has not just been felt in the Niger Delta region, but also in Nigeria and abroad.

He then hailed the initiatives of the founders of the Red Cross Society and prayed that lost souls who gave up fighting to render humanitarian services would rest in peace.

His words, “I have always adopted the Red Cross policies and action in governance, today more than ever, we need your partnership and collaboration because of flood and other challenges in the region.

“Therefore, I will take up the few request you have made to the Ministry with the Permanent Secretary, look at ways the Ministry can assist the society to do a better job for us in the Niger Delta region and also consider assigning a liaison officer who would be the focal person in the Ministry to interface with your organization, so that we can have a workable partnership with the resources available.”
