A Group, Ilaje Unity Forum, has hailed Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, for recommending the immediate past Chairman of Ondo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, Mr. Gbenga Edema, as Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

According to a statement signed and made available to journalists in Akure yesterday, by Chairman and Secretary of the group, Stephen Jatuwase and Olabanji Orogbemi respectively, the group lauded the governor on the recommendation of his Special Adviser on Education, Mrs. Wunmi Ilawole, as the state representative on the NDDC board, insisting that it is the turn of Ondo State to produce the MD.

It maintained that Edema, who hails from Ogogoro, an oil-producing community in Ilaje Local Council, is eminently qualified by all ramifications to be the next managing director of the commission.

Meanwhile, the group has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to inaugurate the NDDC board without delay to enable it begin its assignment, which is the total development of the Niger Delta region.
