NDDC Places Priority on Education - EDP,  Adjogbe.

The Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, recently had reiterated commitment to supporting educational institutions within the Niger Delta region.

Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC, Mr Nsima Ekere, represented by the Executive Director - Projects, EDP, Engr Samuel Adjogbe, FNSE stated that supporting education and promoting awareness campaigns within the Niger delta region remains one viable tool the agency has resolved to use in curbing youth restiveness and violence within the region. 

Adjogbe who made this remark while addressing students of Government College, Ughelli during a visit to the school stated that:

'When students and the teeming youths of the Niger Delta region are informed at an early stage of the dividends of constructive engagement and dialogue as against restiveness and violence, then and only then can they emulate the way of peace in their dealings.'

'As an Interventionist Agency, a peaceful environment would enhance whatever developmental interventions we intend doing and to this end, NDDC places priority on supporting educational institutions to drive home this notion.'

Mr Roland Edoja, speaking on behalf of the Principal of the Institution, noted that the school which is reputed for producing leaders and scholars who have championed the course of peace at various levels, shall not be deterred from impacting positively on students whom he described as future leaders of tomorrow.

Speaking generally, Adjogbe who charged students on the essence of hard work, also took time to advise against cultism and other societal vices. 

"Hard work pays and there is no shortcut to success. Study hard and you will make it." EDP added.
