Former militant commander, Israel Eshanekpe, has said that the

commission's Managing Director to investigate allegations of

corruption and contract racketeering, was condemnable even as he said

disrupting a meeting organised by the NDDC, a commission he said is

anchoring a new vista of both human and material development in the

will remain an illusion.

society organisations, traditional rulers in Port Harcourt, was marred

by unruly youths who were not supposed to be part of the fact-finding

meeting put together by the commission. learnt that the meeting was summoned by Ekere to find

out what was true and what was not true about the allegations of

contract racketeering, in order to immediately tackle them and resolve

all issues concerned.

society and the media to ensure that its work passed the test of time

and inquiry.

urged him no to tarry in taking the region to the next level, adding

that that saboteurs are everywhere in the region to undermine the

efforts and achievements made by the commission.

manager in the history of the commission, noting that except for a

person like Ekere managing the agency, development would remain

elusive to the people of the region.
