The President made this announcement through Mr Femi Adesina, who is the Special Advisers to the President on Media and Publicity, in Abuja on Friday.

The statement from the Presidency reads:

“The President, following a Federal Executive Council (FEC) resolution, has equally vested the supervisory role of the commission in the Honourable Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, as well as approved the dissolution of the extant board,” he said.

Adesina revealed that the president also approved the appointment of Mr Chris Amadi (Finance and Administration) and Samuel Adjogbe (Projects) as Acting Executive Directors of NDDC.
