NDDC Developmental Strides: Ifim Ikpaisong Ibibio Blesses Nsima Ekere


Royal fathers of Ibibio extraction under the umbrella of Ifim Ikpaisong Ibibio on Saturday commended the Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mr Nsima Ekere, for the successes so far recorded in just six months in office.
The Oku Ikpaisong Ibibio and Paramount Ruler of Etinan, Edidem Ime Dickson Umoette, stated this on Saturday when a team from the NDDC, led by the Managing Director visited the Ibibio monarchs in his palace.
The royal father, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, thanked God for the life of Mr Ekere, describing him as the Biblical Joseph who was sent to deliver his people through the various intervention initiatives of the NDDC in the state and region.
He said it was regrettable that some people tried to frustrate the President’s two NDDC nominees from the state last year, but thanked God that the will of God prevailed and the nominees were screened and confirmed by the National Assembly and sworn into office.
“We appreciate your finding time despite your busy schedule to visit us. We have seen your numerous intervention in the state in just six months. No conspiracy against you, the Commissioner and the Governing Board will prevail”, he prayed.
Responding, the NDDC boss thanked the monarchs for their support and prayers, recalling that when he was nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari alongside Mr. Samuel Frank in the reconstituted board of the NDDC, some critics objected to the President’s nomination but thanked the royal fathers for their support, solidarity and prayers which saw them through.
He pledged his resolve to work assiduously towards making the state proud as a worthy ambassador all through his tenure.
On his part, the Akwa Ibom State Commissioner on the Governing Board of the NDDC, Mr. Frank thanked the monarchs for their support and prayers to the Board and solicited them to continue doing so.
Prayers were offered for success and God’s guidance upon Messrs Ekere and Frank by the royal fathers.
