The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the tenure of the former boss of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Ibim Semenitari, as a misfortune.

This is coming a day after the expiration of Semenitari’s tenure as the head of NDDC.

According to Daily Post, the Rivers PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah, also said her tenure brought no development to the state.

In a swift reaction, the Semenitari dismissed the PDP’s claims, through her spokesman, Bekee Anyalewechi.

Anyalewechi said "If a man of Obuah’s character and personality can open his mouth to access my stewardship in NDDC, then, Rivers State is in abyss and needs redemption,” she added.

“Under my watch and stewardship, NDDC climbed off the valley of pariah that today banks, donor agencies, international development partners, contractors and vendors hitherto allergic to doing business with the Commission, are eager for a deal.

“It was a Commission which credit rating was zero, with abandoned contracts its trademark. But to the glory of God, under the 10 months of my service, we changed all that.

“Today, no contractor will ever abandon any NDDC project because we returned contractors’ trust and lifted their confidence.

“No more will NDDC contractors deliver poorly executed jobs like the type at the University of Port Harcourt.”

Ibim Semenitari had earlier slammed Governor Nyesom Wike over a road project, asking him to focus on fighting insecurity instead of playing to the gallery.
