NDDC PROJECTS AND PROGRAMS

Niger Delta Development Commission is aimed at establishing in the Niger Delta Region (NDR) a strong and progressive society in which no one will have any anxiety about basic means of life and work; where poverty and illiteracy no longer exist and diseases are brought under control; and where our educational facilities provide all the children of NDR with best possible opportunities for the development of their potentials.

NDDC sees to the implementation of our mandate by executing relevant projects in the entire region. Projects are conceptualized, designed and executed based on extensive consultation with locals, input from interested parties and critical analysis by experts. Projects are awarded based on their ability to give maximum impact to the local region and beyond the constraints of allotted budget. NDDC is therefore a good harvest of concrete achievements as evidenced in the array of projects and programs we have embarked on. In all modesty, we can assert that NDDC has taken giant strides to facilitate the all-round development of the Niger Delta and its people.
