Sports Development Will Be One Of My Legacies In NDDC – Ekere

  • Published in News

Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Mr Nsima Ekere, has promised to uphold sports development in the Niger Delta region and list it as one of the legacies he will bequeath to the next management of the interventionist agency.

Ekere, who is the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC, in Akwa Ibom State, spoke after teeing off the NDDC Pro-Am Championship at the Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort in Uyo on Saturday.

According to the NDDC Managing Director, the four-day golf tournament which ended on Sunday, would be encouraged to give youths of the region a sense of competitiveness.

He said: “I will love to see this tournament turned into a yearly event. Unfortunately, I am not going to be in NDDC forever. But even if I have to leave, I will like to include it as one of my legacies to be captured in my handover notes.”

Ekere said he would be delighted if the managing director that would come after him would see the need to continue to extend NDDC's support to the tournament because “golf is a beautiful sporting activity all over the world.”

He noted that the NDDC had been involved in many sporting activities in the Niger Delta region and the country at large. “We believe that it is one way we can take our youths away from the vices of militancy and other criminality,” Ekere said.

He stated further: “We have a lot of talents in the Niger Delta. If these talents are developed properly, they can help not just in creating jobs, but also in boosting the economy of the region. Therefore, we hope to give our youths the opportunity to develop their talents because sportsmen and women are now among the wealthiest in the world today.”
