|Ogonis Take To Social Media To Celebrate Joi Nunieh’s Ouster by holygist: 9:36am On Feb 23, 2020|
Moments after her unexpected removal and replacement as Head of the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Ogonis have surprisingly taken to different platforms to celebrate the sack of Dr. Joi Nunieh.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had on Wednesday approved an enlargement of the temporary committee from three to five members and also announced Prof. K.D Pondei as the new Head of the IMC. Former Rivers Women Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Caroline Nagbo, another Ogoni Amazon as Nunieh was also announced a member of the expanded IMC of the NDDC.
Surprisingly, instead of the protests and agitations that have become frequent with the now habitual removal of the head of the agency by their supposed primary beneficiaries – often their kinsmen – Nunieh’s people appear to be blowing a discordant tune and do appear to be excited about her removal.
At the heart of their grievance, the Holygist gathered is her perceived non-performance and lack of a traceable project attracted to Ogoni land in the course of her five months sojourn at the NDDC, barring in mind that no Ogoni aborigine had before her served as head of the agency. The closest to achieve her feat is the former Director of Finance and Administration, Mr. Mene Derek.
Though Gbene Joi’s mandate hinged primarily on driving the forensic spotlight on the agency’s financial records, the expectations her people placed on her, as their reaction now show, were really enormous given that she also was in control of the agency’s funds.
“It was a wasteful tenure for the Ogoni people”, laments Kadilo Kabari.
Kabari in a chat with newsmen in Port Harcourt said the people of the region cannot point a single thing they benefited from her stay as Acting Managing Director.
Nwinee Anson who spoke to Holygist from Khana Local Government Area said, “It is very unfortunate that Gbene Joi has left NDDC without any signature project in the entire Ogoni land, too bad”.
Anson wondered how any Ogoni aborigine can ever claim the region once headed the lucrative agency which her predecessors used to transform their immediate communities.
