Bayelsa wants big ticket projects with NDDC

It is a prayer that has been answered and we thank President Muhammadu Buhari for listening to us.

Speaking earlier, the MD Ogbuku, assured the governor that all NDDC stakeholders were being engaged to fasttrack the development of the Niger Delta region. We are engaging the International Oil Companies (IOCs), traditional rulers, civil society groups, contractors and youths in the Niger Delta region, he said.

The NDDC boss said that as a way of addressing its inadequate financial resources, the Commission had adopted a Public Private Partnership (PPP) approach to development.

We are working on having a smart budget.

Ogbuku remarked that the NDDC had developed a new concept of working with the Niger Delta Chamber of Commerce in the training of youths and young entrepreneurs in the Niger Delta region.

He explained that the Commission would collaborate with the Chamber of Commerce to support Small and Medium Enterprises in the region.

He stressed We will strengthen young entrepreneurs in the region.

He invited the governor to be part of the PPP Summit being organized by the Commission in Lagos before the end of the month.

Ogbuku also told the governor that the OgbiaNembe Road, which was executed through a partnership between the NDDC and Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) would be commissioned by President Buhari in May.

According to the Managing Director, one of the first steps by the management was a decision to do things differently.
