Senate Confirms Appointments of 13 NDDC Board Members

The Senate has confirmed the appointment of Lauretta Onochie, as the Board Chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Onochie was Special Assistant on New Media to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Her appointment as Board Chairman of the NDDC was  confirmed alongside those of Managing Director, Executive Directors, and other board members for the Commission.

Confirmation of appointments of 13 out of the 15 Presidential nominees for the NDDC board by the Senate, was a sequel to the adoption of the report and recommendations made to that effect by the Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs headed by Senator Amos Bulus on Tuesday.

Objections raised by Senators Seriake Dickson from Bayelsa and Nicholas Tofowomo against Onochie and Charles Ogunmola from Ondo State were ignored by the Senate President and other lawmakers.

Meanwhile, the nominations of Dr. Pius Odudu (Edo) and Engineer Anthony Ekenne  (Imo) were not confirmed due to their failure to appear for screening.
