In what sounds like a protection to all its citizens, Rivers State Government has comes out boldly to show concern over the travails of one its constituents, Dr. Joy Nunieth former Acting Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC whose tenure is also under probe alongside others in the many corruption acts unraveled in NDDC since its creation in year 2000.

In the Press Statement signed by the Rivers State Commissioner, Mr Paulinus Nsirim and issued to 9News Nigeria, the Government of Rivers State takes its stance in this tone:

NDDC PROBE: NOTHING SHOULD HAPPEN TO OUR DAUGHTER

Rivers State Government has viewed with concern, the recent developments at the Niger Delta Development Commission(NDDC) in which the name of our daughter, Dr. Joi Nunieh, the immediate past Acting Managing Director of the Commission, has been dragged into.

We hereby call on those involved in the ongoing investigations in the NDDC to ensure that Dr. Joi Nunieh does not suffer any harm in the course of their undertakings.

We wish to state categorically that the Rivers State Government will never support any action that will prevent or jeopardize the laudable intentions of His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, to positively reposition the NDDC and fulfill the yearnings and aspirations of the people of the Niger Delta.

However, we wish to state that while we are not interested in identifying with the present unfolding drama in the NDDC, we will not however fail to protect our daughter from actual harm or perceived danger.

The State owes it as a duty to protect her citizens from danger no matter their political affiliation and we cannot fold our hands and watch anyone harm her or indeed any Rivers citizen.

We advise those involved in the present altercations in the NDDC to thread with caution in their actions and utterances.
