Mrs Ibifuro Thompson-Tatua, NDPM's Coordinator, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt that the group was excited over the NDDC's completion of its Rivers office to save cost.

Thompson-Tatua, however, said that the move from the rented apartment to the permanent office would save funds.

She said that due to the poor state of the economy, any savings made would be deployed to other viable initiatives.

"It will not only save substantial amount in the name of rent payment, it will promote preservation and manageable maintenance cost,'' she said.

Thompson-Tatua also said that NDDC's style of cutting cost should be emulated by other establishments, especially government institutions.

She commended the Acting Managing Director of the commission, Mrs Ibim Semenitari, for her vision in fast-tracking the completion of the office project abandoned by her predecessors.

Thompson-Tatua also commended the NDDC management for acquiring friendly work stations for the staff and setting the pace in service delivery.

"NDPM believes that the objective of the commission will continue to manifest positively and we pray to God to bless and flourish progressive actions toward promoting the progress of our region," she said.
