Don’t marginalise Edo in NDDC board appointments,

By Marlikberry,

It gave a nine-day ultimatum for assurances of fair treatment from Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.

Its President, Aiyamenkhue Edokpolo, said Edo houses the largest gas reserve in West Africa and many oil wells. He said the state should not be denied its deserved role in the next board of NDDC.

Edokpolo said: “Edo State, as host to the largest gas reserve in West Africa, is eminently deserving of the managing directorship or executive directorship, but some persons who do not mean well for the Niger Delta have perfected plans to appropriate the positions to Bayelsa and Akwa Ibom States, which have had overstretched share of chairmanship and directorship of NDDC in Nigeria.
