  1. It is a pity that the National Coordinator of the Coalition of Niger Delta Voices, CNDV, Barr. Frank Ekpemupolo who claimed to be fighting for the Niger Delta is a beneficiary of the outgoing acting NDDC boss, Prof Nelson Brambaifa, who is found apparently incompetent to handle the affairs of the Niger Delta Development Commission. Every Niger Deltan has the moral obligation to comment on whether Prof. Nelson should leave or continue in office, but Frank Ekpemupolo is cry foul without consulting we, the stakeholders of the Coalition of Niger Delta Voices because his cup of tea which he has been drinking from NDDC boss is at stake. Why is it that people like Ekpemupolo that is fighting for his pocket is claiming to be the voice of the Niger Delta? It is sad!
