Tradition leader and past Executive Secretaries of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his support in ensuring the completion of the board’s headquarters in Bayelsa.

They gave the commendation at the Virtual inauguration of the Nigerian Content Towers in Yenagoa on Thursday.

The 17 storey building which construction started in 2015 was built by an indigenous company, Megastar construction company.

The edifice is equipped with a multi-level car park, 1000 capacity conference hall among others.

The pioneer Executive Secretary of NCDMB, Mr Ernest Nwapa, said that the political will of the president made it possible for the project to be completed.

“What we are celebrating today is a physical demonstration but the most important thing to note is that a great institution has been established.

“I want to challenge all of us that it must be a strong organisation that good people should manage and we must ensure that qualified people are elected to run the place,” he said.

He commended Megastar for the work, adding that the good work had proved the strength of local content and the need to support it.

Also, Mr Denzil Kentebe, another former Executive Secretary, said that NCDMB would remain a symbol to be reckoned with in the industry, “what we are dedicating today is leadership efficiency, vision and continuity in governance.

“I commend the president, the Executive Secretary Simbi Wabote, Bayelsa State government and the staff of the board for all their efforts.”

In his remarks, Chief Wilcox Job, paramount ruler, Swali community, thanked the Federal government for ensuring that the headquarters of the NCDMB was located in his community.

He gave the assurance that the community would continue to support all efforts and programmes of the board.

“We are proud of the Executive secretary and the work he is doing. We will continue to support what the board is doing for the country,” he said.
