He applauded the House of Representatives for the expeditious consideration and adoption of the report of the House Committee on NDDC, chaired by Hon. Olubunmi Tunji Ojo, noting that the exercise was very expedient in order not to let the people of the region suffer from further delays.
The NDDC Chief Executive Officer said that the passage of the budget was a significant milestone in the development of the Niger Delta region. He said the budget would enable the NDDC to continue providing critical infrastructure and services to the people of the region.
He said: “We are grateful to both the Senate and the House of Representatives for their support and commitment to developing the Niger Delta region. The passage of this budget will enable us to continue providing critical infrastructure and services to our people.”
Ogbuku expressed delight that the House also approved President Muhammadu Buhari’s request for extension of the implementation period of the capital component of the 2022 budget by six months, from June to December 2023.
The NDDC boss pledged to ensure that the funds allocated in the budget were used judiciously and through due process, stating that the NDDC would work assiduously to ensure that its projects were completed on time and to the highest standards.
