This followed the visit of Dr Joi Nuneih, the new Acting Managing Director of the Commission, to Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, last week in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, where she handed a list of hundreds of projects purportedly executed by the NDDC in the State, to the Governor.

Details of the list was said to have lshocked the Governor who thanked Dr Joi Nuneih and her team for the visit. He therefore ordered that a committee be set up immediately to verify the status of each project in the NDDC list for the state.

Inaugurating the committee in his office earlier today on behalf of the Governor, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Barr Chris Ezem, underlined the importance of the committee to the Government and people of the State, expressing confidence in their ability to deliver on the assignment since they were all selected based on their pedigree, and urged them not to relent in getting the facts and figures behind the projects for government proper action insisting that “our people must get value for every NDDC project in the State”.
