President Tinubu Amends NDDC Nomination Lists After Protests

The immediate replacement of Mr. Victor Akinjo, the Ondo State Representative nominee of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), with Hon. Otito Atikase has been approved by President Bola Tinubu.
The president has also given his approval for the immediate replacement of Mr. Asi Oku Okang, the NDDC’s nominees of Cross River State Representative, with Rt. Hon. Orok Otuk Duke.
The decision was made public on Friday by his spokesman, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, in a statement titled “President Tinubu Amends Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) Board and Management Nomination List.”
He also said the immediate past Managing Director / Chief Executive Officer of the NDDC, Dr. Samuel Ogbuku, was reappointed to a second term and would remain in acting capacity, pending the Senate’s confirmation of his reappointment.
The president had on Tuesday, August 29, approved the appointment of a new Board and Management team of the Niger Delta Development Commission which took immediate effect.
His spokesman had said the President expected that the new board and management team would ensure a new era of successful administration in the NDDC, in line with his Renewed Hope agenda.
But some protesters kicked against the appointments, saying the nominees worked against the president in the election.
During a protest in Ondo, some APC members had likened the appointments to “monkey dey work, baboon dey chop”.
