Discard NDDC, Oil-producing Communities Advice FG.
The Oil and gas-producing communities has requested dissolvement of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), From Federal Government with immediate effect.
The demand came as the communities insist that 2.5 per cent proposed for them in the new Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) is unacceptable, saying they stand by 10 per cent, which the late former President Umaru Musa Yar’ Adua proposed before it was shut down.
The host communities made the call for the scrapping of NDDC barely 24 hours after a public hearing on the PIB 2020, organised by Senate’s Joint Committee on Petroleum Downstream, Upstream, and Gas.
Minister of State for Petroleum, Timipre Sylva, faulted his kinsmen in the host communities over their insistence on 10 per cent accruals from the various oil firms.
