BUHARI NOMINATES THREE NEW NDDC BOARD MEMBERS


President Muhammadu Buhari has forwarded names of three new Board members for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) for the replacement of those rejected by the Senate.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki stated this in a letter transmitted by the President to the Red chamber on Thursday.

The new nominees are Lucky Omirisan , Hon. Chuka and Nwogu N.Nwogu from Ondo, Imo and Abia States respectively.
The Senate had in October 2016 rejected three nominees out of 19 of the NDDC Board.

They were; Donatus Enyinnaya, Abia State, Osita Bonaventure Izunaso, Imo Sate Olatokunbo Ayotunde Ajasin, Ondo State

Ajasin and Enyinnaya were rejected because they are not from oil-producing areas of their respective states. Osita declined the appointment.
