A foremost nationalist, Edwin Clark, has asked Godswill Akpabio, the Minister of Niger Delta affairs to stop interfering in the affairs of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Clark, the chairman Pan-Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, said while receiving Effiong Okon, the NDDC interim administrator on Wednesday, that: “The problem we have is the constant interference in the NDDC by the minister.”
He said: “There is no provision in the NDDC budget for the completion of the East-West road. I don’t know why the road is not under the minister of works.
“We are asking the federal government to make special funds for the completion of the road.”
