“We are delighted at the high quality of appointees to the new board of the commission and want to register our appreciation of the President’s careful and well-considered choices, which reflect deep concern for experience, competence and integrity.

“We are confident that the new Board under the able chairmanship of the highly experienced Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba will effectively steer the affairs of the commission for the fulfilment of its mandate to the people of Niger Delta”.

The Akwa Ibom APC described the former deputy governor as the right pick for the top job at the commission in terms of track record, exposure and other indicators of leadership ability and expressed confidence in him and his ability to discharge the Office of Managing Director of the NDDC with utmost prudence, dedication and exemplary sense of duty.

The statement also expressed delight at the choice of the commissioner-designate from the state, describing Mr. Frank as a man known for his self-control, loyalty to any cause he believes in and commitment to duty and wished the appointees success in their new assignments.
