Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has appealed to the authorities of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), to revisit all the projects allegedly abandoned by the commission.

Okorocha, who made the plea recently when the board members and some officials of the agency led by the chairman, Senator Victor Ndoma Egba, visited the governor at the Government House, Owerri.

The governor who later handed in the list of all the abandoned projects of the commission in the state, insisted that the commission had not been fair to the state in terms of projects planning and execution, urging that the state should be engaged and involved in any project by the commission for the state.

He opined that as a development partnering commission, established duely by the law, all the Niger Delta States should do the needful to the oil producing states.

According to Okorocha, the present board and management should address the neglect, noting that if the funds allocated to the commission had been judiciously applied appropriately, the benefitting states would not have complained marginalization.

Speaking, Ndoma -Egba, said he came with his team to receive information on that, adding that its retreat would take place soon where such review would take place.
