Ijaw Elder Statesman, Edwin Clark Calls For The Exclusion Of Imo, Abia And Ondo From NDDC

Must read

Ijaw elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, has called for the exclusion of Abia, Imo and Ondo states from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

According to the chieftain, the states were included in the first place in the 2000 NDDC Act for convenience, though a political aberration.

He therefore made demand for President Bola Tinubu to re-enact a new bill for the NDDC that would reflect the true oil-producing states of the Niger Delta, which are Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Edo and Akwa Ibom.
