The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has redeployed 11 directors to different offices to “boost its performance” in the development of the Niger Delta.
Speaking on Thursday, Nsima Ekere, the commission’s managing director, said the decision to make the changes was taken after a retreat in Port Harcourt.
He said the affected directors were drawn from the commission’s offices in Abuja, Bayelsa, Imo, Ondo, Delta and Rivers states.
He gave the names of the directors as: Princewill Ekanim, who was redeployed to the office of the managing director as director of special duties.
Effiong Ephraim moved from special duties to head Abuja Liaison office, while Rachael Odiri, formerly head of Bayelsa state office now leads the Abuja office.
Also, Wanoro Weli, a former director in charge of utility infrastructure development and waterways would head the office in Ondo state, replacing Emma Audu who becomes director of project monitoring and supervision.
Nosa Agbongiasede takes charge of Imo state office, while Godwin Jaja, formerly director of Imo office would take charge of human resources directorate.
Etim Eyoette was elevated to the position of acting director, utility infrastructure development and waterways (UIDW), while Ndubuisi Ahiakwo was moved from UIDW in Delta to Project Monitoring and Supervision (Western Zone).
Uno Uno now heads Project Monitoring and Supervision (Eastern Zone) while Felix Aomreore becomes head, Project Monitoring and Supervision (Central Zone).
Ekere said the redeployment would enable the commission to actualise reforms designed to restore the commission’s core mandate and improve the living conditions of residents in the Niger Delta.
“We are taking actions to reform our operations for optimum performance; and part of the first step was to deploy officers to where they would offer better service,” he said.
“It is important to offer the region and our people better service; improve the quality of our projects; and ensure that we pay for projects and programmes that we implement.”
