The senator representing Ondo North Senatorial District, Prof. Ajayi Boroffice has appealed for calm due to palpable tension in the oil-producing communities in Ondo State over nominations for Board of the Niger Delta Development Commission.
In a statement issued in Abuja by his media aide, Kayode Adeniyi, the APC Chieftain said, “I have received countless calls, text messages and electronic mails from concerned people of Ondo State, particularly our brothers and the sisters from the oil-producing communities in Ondo State on the issue of nominees for the Board of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
“Some of the people did raise petitions and expressed dissenting views while some threathened to embark on protests as regards the composition of nominees for the Board of NDDC.
“However, the NDDC Act is clear with no iota of ambiguity on the requirements that must be fulfilled.
“Therefore, I want to alert concerned and aggrieved citizens of Ondo State that the leadership of All Progressives Congress at the topmost level has intervened and taken up the issue. Our people should be rest-assured that justice will be done on the issue.
“Finally, as members of one big political family, I appeal to concerned citizens to back out from any planned protest, if any, since the issue will be resolved soon”, the senator said
