The Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Niger Delta Development (NDDC), Olubunmi Tunji Ojo (BTO) pledged that the NDDC will commit to delivering more people-focused projects in the mandate areas of the NDDC.
The member of the House of Representatives, representing the federal constituency of Akoko North East / North West, said this during the commissioning of the 1050 bed hostel by President Muhammadu Buhari at the University of Uyo, in Akwa Ibom State. According to him, with the commissioning of the project, the NDDC renews the confidence of the Niger Delta in the seriousness of the government to bring development to communities.
He said the project was made necessary due to the need of the people to put in place a suitable structure and atmosphere for the students to thrive and be nurtured in their academic pursuit as they are the future of the nation.
Ojo appreciated President Buhari for his support, which he said has helped the commission a lot to achieve its true goal.
He also said that while the commission cannot deny that there are no outstanding issues and challenges, he assured that the commission is focused on helping these issues.
In his words: “I can assure you that with our continued synergy and cooperation, we will continue to collectively bring forth more development projects in the areas of the mandate”
