Timothy Choji Kano


President Muhammadu Buhari has approved that the Board of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC be recomposed and inaugurated after the forensic audit of the organisation.

The President has also directed that the Interim Management Team of the NDDC shall be in place till the forensic audit is completed, and that the supervision of the Commission shall remain under the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs.

The message was contained in a presidency statement issued by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

The forensic audit was ordered earlier this year by President Muhammadu Buhari to unravel alleged cases of corruption within the NDDC.
