The NDDC Director, Corporate Affairs, Dr Ibitoye Abosede, in a statement on Sunday, said the Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, will commission the 66-flat residential quarters and administrative block for security personnel in Rivers State on behalf of the president.
The project which had previously been inspected by the NDDC Interim Administrator, Mr Efiong Akwa, consists of an administrative block, an armoury, gatehouse, underground cell and 66 units of accommodation made up of the commander’s residence, second-in-command’s residence, and 64 one-bedroom flats.

The NDDC spokesman quoted Akwa as saying, “When people say that NDDC is not working, you can see that it is not true. The problem is that people don’t get to acknowledge the numerous projects that the commission executed or is executing.”
The NDDC boss noted that the project was very important in view of the security and economic challenges in the Niger Delta region, stating that it would add value to the living conditions of security officers in the region.
Akwa further said the project was part of a broad-based partnership with the Nigeria Police Force to add value to their efforts at improving regional security.
