Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, the leading Igbo sociocultural organization, has praised the nomination of Lauretta Onochie as Chairman, Board of the Niger Delta Development Commission, or NDDC.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Ambassador Chiemelu Obizoba, Director General of Strategic Planning and Implementation, revealed this information and praised the selection.
“The gladdening news came to us extremely gratifying,” the statement stated. “Appointing a no-nonsense personality like Onochie is unquestionably fitting a round peg in a round hole.
She “knows where the shoe pinches the people as a true daughter of the oil-rich region, and as President Muhammadu Buhari’s digital and social media aide for more than seven years, she is trained enough to understand the President’s mindset and his vision and mission for the welfare of the Niger Delta people.
“We thank President Muhammadu Buhari for appointing one of our own and our incredible mentor to the top position. We are happy and congratulate the new Board Chairman, Lauretta Onochie.
We fervently hope and believe that the Senate President, Dr. Ahmed Lawan, and other members of the Red Chamber of the National Assembly will swiftly consider and approve the President’s selection of Lauretta Onochie as significant Chairman of the NDDC Board.
