Senator Godswill Akpabio, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs is in pains and has bared his mind.
He said; Niger Delta Development Commission has not performed well in its main responsibility, which was the development of the Niger Delta region.”
“We will look into the budgetary allocation and see how it can be improved upon, because the success of any organisation starts from budgeting.”
“We want to redirect the budgeting procedure of the commission so that we can aim at the ongoing projects, that is, those that are nearing completion but which have not been completed due to lack of human will.”
“There are too many uncompleted projects across the Niger Delta region due to lack of proper coordination, “we will not allow that any longer.”
“We are going to focus on the key ones that are on ground for us to complete between now and next year and also start some things that can create employment opportunities.”
“The East-West Road is one of the major priorities of my administration. I will work very hard to ensure the development of the region.”
