LAGOS -The erstwhile Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC Mr. Chibuzor Ugwoha was responsible for the crisis that led to the dissolution of the board, a former member of the board who was an active player in the crisis leading to the dissolution told Vanguard yesterday.

Mr. Benson Enikuomeyin who represented Ondo State in the dissolved board said he allegedly disregarded the advice of board members, thereby crppling the board which at the time of the dissolution was yet to articulate a working budget for the outgoing year.

Meanwhile, the dissolution of the board was yesterday generally commended by stakeholders from the region including Senators of the Niger Delta region.

While Senator James Manager, PDP, Delta South said the dissolution was not surprising to either the board members or stakeholders, Senator Ita Enang sought more involvement of Governors of the region who he said were statutory members of the NDDC advisory council in nudging the board towards proper conduct.
