President Muhamadu Buhari has dissolved the Board of the Niger Delta Development Commission and fired the Managing Director of the commission, Bassey Dan-Abia.

The President named the immediate past commissioner of Information in Rivers State, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, as the Acting Managing Director of the commission.

A statement said, “President Muhammadu Buhari has named Mrs. Ibim Semenitari the new Managing Director, Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC. However, Semenitari is to function in acting capacity pending the appointment of a substantive MD.

“Semenitari, an award-winner journalist and media manager, had served in the Communications Directorate of the Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation during the 2015 presidential election.”

Semenitari served as Commissioner of Information and Communications in Rivers State under the administration of Rotimi Amaechi.

A series of corruption allegations had been levelled against the Board of the NDDC, especially as it concerned abandoned projects across the Niger Delta region.
