The Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC has passionately urged Cross River communities to cooperate with construction companies towards successful completion of infrastructure works. The Cross River representative at the NDDC, Rt. Hon. Orok Duke made this plea recently NEGROIDHAVEN can state.

The NDDC Commissioner made the appeal over the weekend when he met with leaders, women and youths of Eto Mkpe Yellow Duke community in Akpabuyo local government area of the state.

Duke who was in the community to inspect the installation of solar lights, urged them to allow contractors mount the lights, stating that it is for the best interest of the community. He noted that although the lights were not enough, efforts were being made for more to come.

While charging them to always be receptive to contractors, the NDDC rep promised them that roads and other projects would be executed in Eto Mkpe Yellow Duke and other communities as long as he remains the NDDC Commissioner.

Furthermore, he urged them to give their total support to the Prince Bassey Otu-led administration which he described as human-centered, reiterating that as an intervention agency, his work at NDDC is to fill in gaps and complement the effort of the state government in critical areas of needs.

Responding, some of the community members who spoke separately, assured the NDDC Commissioner of their cooperation, even as they pleaded for more projects in their area.
