By Ebi Perekeme 

The Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, will re-open its head office on Thursday, June 18, after a two week lockdown to allow for the fumigation of the premises.

A press statement by Charles Obi Odili, Director, Corporate Affairs, June 17, 2020, said the lockdown was in obedience to public health directives from the Rivers State Ministry of Health, following cases of COVID 19 infections.

“Only staff from Grade 14 and above and those on essential duties are directed to resume,” the statement read.

It continued, “Staff on other grade levels are to remain at home pending directives from the Federal Government.”

Meanwhile the Acting Managing Director, Prof Kemebradikumo Pondei, and the Acting Executive Director Projects, Dr Cairo Ojougboh, “will operate from the new headquarters building at the Eastern bye pass, Pot Harcourt.”

However, the Commission was said would not be open to visitors.
