Anti-Niger Delta elements against confirmation of NDDC boss, group alleges
The Credible Leadership For Peace and Development Movement (CLPDM) has accused some unnamed political gladiators and ‘enemies’ of the Niger Delta region of working against the confirmation of the Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Prof. Nelson Brambaifa.
The Bayelsa group therefore called on President Muhammadu Buhari to disregard what it called the ‘coup’ being orchestrated by some politicians to remove Brambaifa from office.
In a statement by its national coordinator, Markson Agbana in Yenagoa, the body claimed that all recent petitions to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) were initiated by politicians to vilify the NDDC helmsman.
He stated that the people of the oil-rich region were behind Brambaifa to actualise Buhari’s dream for the area.
“We are using this medium to send a warning to those few selfish politicians within and outside the APC, particularly in Bayelsa State, who want to rubbish the name of Prof. Brambaifa so that the president may replace him with their own choice of a substantive MD of the NDDC to stop the campaign of calumny against him forthwith,” Agbana stated.
