President Muhammadu Buhari has nominated one-time Akwa Ibom State Deputy Governor Nsima Ekere as Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba as the Chairman.
Ndoma-Egba from Cross River State is a former senate leader.
Sources said yesterday that the President’s nomination letter had been sent to Senate President Bukola Saraki.
The senate president is expected to read the letter on the floor before setting a date for the commencement of the clearance process.
If confirmed, Ekere will replace acting Managing Director Mrs Ibim Semenitari.
