President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has been advised to scrap the Niger Delta Development Commission and the North East Development Commission for allegedly taking advantage of the masses.

Isah Abubakar, National President, Northern Youth Council of Nigeria and Chairman, Nigeria Citizen Action Group, in a statement issued on Monday in Kaduna, said, “We advise that Mr President to as a matter of urgency immediately scrap this two commission so as to stop few from taking advantage of the masses.”

He also advised the government to merge agencies, Ministries and commissions to cut costs and reduce corruption.

The statement suggested that the Minister of Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio should voluntarily resign his appointment to enable proper investigation of the entire ministry and Commission.

It noted that from available indications and reality on the ground, the two commissions are no longer serving the purposes of fast-tracking developments but rather served as avenues to loot the regional resources by a few.

“With the audit of the Niger Delta Development Commission one will not hesitate to say that if a similar committee is set to investigate the North East Development Commission, both will have little or no difference. The two commissions are never needed if all government agencies are very proactive, effective and transparent in their responsibility.

“It’s a fact that from 2000 till date, over 20 Trillion Naira have been looted in NDDC alone; this quantum amount of money can transform a Nation, not Region. Only 1.1% of the total population of that region benefit from this corrupt setting of government,” the statement explained.
