Uzodimma, Otti Request An Audit Of N-Delta's Unfinished Projects

Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo and his Abia State counterpart, Alex Otti, have urged the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Abubakar Momoh, to conduct an audit of uncompleted projects funded by the Federal Government through the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to ensure their completion where necessary.

This was contained in a statement released by Eunice Akro, the Deputy Director of Information and Public Relations at the Ministry of Niger Delta Development in Abuja.

During Momoh’s visit to Uzodimma, he highlighted the importance of collaboration among stakeholders to advance infrastructural development, economic empowerment, and sustainable peace in the Niger Delta Region.

He lauded the minister’s initiatives but emphasized the necessity of auditing incomplete projects and reassigning the Amnesty Officer within the Ministry.

Uzodimma said: “This is to create an enabling environment for infrastructural development, economic empowerment of youths and women, as well as access to wealth, guaranteeing lasting peace and prosperity in the region.”

Momoh, in response, appealed for increased collaborative engagements to curb insecurity and facilitate project execution across the region.

Transitioning to Abia State, the minister also undertook a significant working visit aimed at fostering development and strengthening ties within the Niger Delta.

Governor Otti commended the minister’s performance and emphasized the need for collaboration to achieve impactful development outcomes.

He stressed the importance of completing abandoned projects, prompting Momoh to assure his support.

Subsequently, Minister Momoh conducted a comprehensive inspection tour of ongoing projects across Abia State, including road construction, land reclamation, and school rehabilitation.

The visit included discussions with traditional leaders on community engagement and development perspectives.
