Does this man have a vision for the
Delta? Or is he only interested in his job? Niger
12 September 2011
Embattled Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mr. Cibuzor Igwuoha, has said those calling for his head were those he disappointed by his deviation from the business-as-usual way of doing things in the commission.
He said in
, at the weekend, that the problem he was currently facing was normal “when you begin to do things new”, adding: “Everybody wants business as usual, once you deviate from what is known, even if it will bring the very best result, people will attack you first.” Abuja
Speaking with newsmen shortly after bagging the “Service Delivery Index Award for Most Outstanding Public Institutions,” Ugwuoha said many people were attacking him for doing the right thing, stressing that “we cannot transform the country if we continue to do the same thing the same way that we had done in the past. We must begin now to do things the right way.”
The NDDC boss said even the issue of inter-bank transfer of the commission’s fund for which he was being criticised ought to have attracted showers of praises for him, maintaining that he refused to see what was fraudulent in moving NDDC’s fund from what he called a “failing bank” to a “strong bank”.
