Buhari appoints Lauretta Onochie as NDDC Board Chairman


Lauretta Onochie has been proposed by President Muhammadu Buhari to lead the board of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Onochie, a Special Assistant to the President for Social Media, hails from Delta State, which is located in the geopolitical zone of the South South in the Niger Delta.

The Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, raised a point of order that his state, Delta, does not have a “state representative” on the board, as required by law, as soon as the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, spoke.

The Senate President agreed with his deputy and urged the executive arm to quickly correct the anomaly so that it will not delay Senate consideration and eventual confirmation.
