The Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC which is a federal government agency established by Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo in the year 2000 with the sole mandate of developing the oil-rich Niger Delta region of Nigeria.
In September 2008, President Umaru Yar’Adua announced the formation of a Niger Delta Ministry, with the Niger Delta Development Commission to become a parastatal under the ministry.
Also in 2015, the NDDC started a three months twin certification programme in December 2015, running into billions of naira that was abandoned two(2) months into the training – The Fiber Optics/Telecoms(Owerri) and Oil Spill Management(Port Harcourt) Training for youths of the Niger Delta region.
The two programmes were abandoned by the NDDC and its contractors Mr. Alex Duke(CEO of GreenData Limited). GreenData
1. abandoned the 200 trainees in various hotels in Owerri. This is 2017, and the programmes are still not completed.
2.The Presidency, the NDDC nor its contractor Mr. Alex Duke have said when the training will resume.
This and other issues have led the current board of the Commission to cancel some contracts. This is not the first time contracts worth billions of naira have been abandoned and monies going into private pockets, which has brought the NDDC into the watchful eyes of the Presidency. One of the core mandates of the Commission is to train and educate the youths of the oil rich Niger Delta regions to curb hostilities and also to reduce poverty in the country.
