The Niger-Delta Youth Vanguard for APC has lamented that despite the billions of naira which accrued to the region through the Niger Delta Ministry and the Niger Delta Development Commission, NNDC, the region has been left with nothing to show than bad road network and polluted water.
It blamed the underdevelopment of the Niger Delta region on past leaders appointed from the region to head NDDC and tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately commence investigation into alleged sharp practices in the commission and the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.
The group, in a statement signed by its President, Comrade Fredrick Ujobolo, noted that the federal government would not make any significant headway in the fight against corruption if it fails to probe developments in the NNPC and the NDDC.
Stressing that the region would experience rapid development through close monitoring of the allocation accruing to it, the group noted that “The Niger Delta Development Commission has become the oil well for some senators and reps members where the highest looting occurs daily without course to the development of the region. NDDC has become even worse than NNPC and I appeal to Buhari to look at the sharp practices”.
While advising the President to be mindful of sycophants and those who joined the All Progressives Congress, APC after the presidential election, the statement said: “those who said APC cannot work in the Niger-Delta region are the same people singing praises of Buhari’s administration because their plans had failed and now see themselves as members of APC, when they don’t know how the party got to this level”.
