‘Buhari’s projects un­matched in N’delta’

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS -

PRES IDENT Muham­madu Buhari’s com­mit­ment to the devel­op­ment of in­fra­struc­ture is clearly vis­i­ble in the Niger Delta, says the ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of projects, Niger Delta Devel­op­ment Com­mis­sion (NDDC), Sa­muel Ad­jogbe.

The as­ser­tion fol­lowed re­cent crit­i­cism in some quar­ters that the Buhari ad­min­is­tra­tion had done lit­tle to boost the coun­try’s in­fra­struc­ture.

“With the spate of com­pleted projects so far, one must agree that such com­mit­ment to in­fras­truc­tural devel­op­ment had never been demon­strated be­fore now,” Ad­jogbe said in Port Har­court yes­ter­day, af­ter he was hon­oured for out­stand­ing per­for­mance by Prof. Isaac Zeb-obipi of the Depart­ment of Man­age­ment, Rivers State Univer­sity.

Zeb-obipi said that the ges­ture was in recog­ni­tion of the re­cip­i­ent’s con­tri­bu­tions to na­tional devel­op­ment.

Ad­jogbe, who was rep­re­sented by his Tech­ni­cal As­sis­tant, Nel­son Onwo, thanked the or­gan­is­ers of the event for the recog­ni­tion, adding that the ges­ture was a call to do more.
