The Senate has confirmed the nomination of Lauretta Onochie and 12 others as Chairman and board members of the Niger Delta Development Commission.
Both the Senate and House of Representatives Committees on Niger Delta had screened Onochie last Thursday alongside 13 others for the NDDC board roles.
President Muhammadu Buhari had written to the Senate requesting the Upper Chamber to confirm the appointment of the Chairman and Members of the commission’s board in accordance with the provisions of the NDDC Establishment Act.
This marked the second time Buhari forwarded a list of nominees for the NDDC board for confirmation.
He sent the first list of nominees for the board in 2021 and the Senate screened and confirmed the nominees.
