Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for the appointment Prof. Nelson Brambaifa as Acting Managing Director, Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

A statement by Mr Daniel Iworiso-Markson, Bayelsa Information and Orientation Commissioner, said on Tuesday that the appointment of Brambaifa was in line with the principle of rotating positions among Niger Delta states.

The Special Assistant to President on Media Mr Femi Adeshina on Friday announced the appointment of the managing director of NDDC alongside other members of the board of the commission.

The governor urged the new NDDC managing director to use his new position to advance the course of development in the state.

He also urged him to partner with the state government to deliver critical road infrastructure that would position the state for more development.

Dickson advised Brambaifa to avoid politics and be focused on implementing projects that would impact positively on the Niger Delta people.

“He should not behave like some persons in the past who used their privileged positions at the federal level to short-change the state,” he said.

He said that Bayelsa had suffered severe underdevelopment as a result of the attitude of some of its leaders who played politics with golden opportunities.

Dickson assured the new NDDC helmsman of his administration’s support toward achieving the mandate of the commission.

“We are watching, we want to see how the new MD will navigate the ship of the commission away from the murky waters of politics,” he said. (NAN)
