Obaseki Stops All NDDC Projects In Edo As He Goes To Court by Edo2020: 10:14am On Nov 21
Barely a week after being inaugurated for a second term and two months after winning re-election, the Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has rolled out tough decisions in the state on governance.

Igbere TV reports that on Friday, the governor ordered contractors of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to immediately stop executing projects or undertaking contracts in the state.

Obaseki said the state government is approaching the court to seek an order stopping the federal agency from embarking on any project in the state without the consent of the state’s Executive Council.

Speaking when management team of Seplat Petroleum Company Limited paid him a courtesy visit at Government House, in Benin City, Obaseki said the NDDC has continued to fail the people of the region in the discharge of its responsibilities.

The governor noted: “We embarked on a very ambitious project by signing an agreement with the NDCC and Edo State Oil and Gas Producing Areas Development Commission (EDOPADEC), to jointly construct the Benin-Abraka Road. Unfortunately, NDDC, as usual, failed and we are going to Court. We will not allow them to operate in the State except subject to our approving every project.

“They are only to execute projects cleared by the State Executive Council. They can't come into the state and dictate to us what they want to do here. It’s our money and we will determine what we want, not them telling us what they want to do.”

“All NDDC contractors in Edo State are stopped forthwith from undertaking any contract or any work in the state. We want to go back and focus on our priorities. We want to build that Benin/Abraka Road. We are re-awarding that road,” Obaseki added.

Igbere TV recalls that Obaseki had made similar move against the NDDC when he allegedly, through his ally, a lawyer, approached the court stopping the inauguration of the then NDDC team constituted by President Muhammadu Buhari.

An Edo man, Dr. Pius Odubu and opponent in the then All Progressives Congress (APC) party of the governor was named chairman of the Commission, but the court processes stalled the inauguration.

This forced the President the reconstitute the NDDC team, allowing an interim committee to oversee the activities of the commission. Odubu was deputy governor and ally to former APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, whom Obaseki was at loggerheads with for months before decamping to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to win re-election.

The people's governor simply wants NDDC to prioritize Benin-Abraka road reconstruction and not NDDC carrying out projects that are not people-oriented in the state.

Other SS should follow suit.
NDDC should have been scraped by now. Funds should be given to an agency of the state to perform their function.
If those ones failed - it's on the states

Re: Obaseki Stops All NDDC Projects In Edo As He Goes To Court by techmo(m): 10:23am On Nov 21
undecided



This guy fighting everybody.. from his benefactor to his lawmakers, and now NDDC and FG

Buhari made a stupid mistake supporting this fool


Imagine if Seyi Makinde goes to court to stop Lagos Ibadan standard guage line, or Obiano heading to court to stop 2nd Niger bridge, won't aboki move more projects to North

Am sure Akpabio, and Niger Delta Development Commission, would simply smile and continue chopping Edo State share of NDDC allocation while telling everyone , Obaseki's court order stopped him from doing anything
