Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio on Thursday commissioned the mega complex of the Niger Delta Development Commission in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.
The former lawmaker also hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for his contribution towards the successful completion of the mega project.
Akpabio who commissioned the building on behalf of the President described the successful completion of the building as, “A milestone which shows the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari to the development of Nigeria particularly the Niger Delta region.
“I want to thank the President for the love he has for the Niger Delta Region and to say that, Mr President, this is a monument that stand to remember you positively.”
“The East-West road that you are committed to completing started in 2006 but together we have pledged that this time next year, you will also commission section 1-4 and the good people of Niger Delta will all be grateful to you. Generations will never forget you, Mr President.”
According to the former governor of Akwa Ibom, the construction of the 13-floor headquarters of the Commission kicked-off since 1996, but witnessed a slow pace of work until 2019 when President Buhari showed commitment towards its completion.
Akpabio further stated apart from when he visited the site of the project for the first time in 2019 after he became Niger Delta Minister, no Minister or even CEO/Administrator has ever visited the site since it’s commencement in 1996.
