Excitement In UNIUYO Over NDDC's New Access Road

  • Published in News

The Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, has commissioned a 3.7-kilometre dual carriageway and solar powered light leading into the main campus of the University of Uyo in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

Immediate past Managing Director of the Commission, Mr Nsima Ekere, who performed the commissioning, expressed satisfaction with the quality of work done by the NDDC contractor, pointing out that the solid drainage work would enable the road to last long.

Ekere said the era of poor quality work and abandoned projects was gone because of the control measures put in place by the current NDDC board and management since they assumed office two years ago.

"NDDC is delivering quality work across the Niger Delta," he emphasized. The NDDC boss stated that the commission has executed over 300 projects in Akwa Ibom in the last two years under his watch, 90 per cent of which have been completed.

"All I can assure the entire Akwa Ibom people is that NDDC will continue to be alive to its responsibilities and to recognize Akwa Ibom State as the leading oil producing state in the country," he said.

Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic) of the University of Uyo, Prof. Inyang Udofot, who represented the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Enefiok Essien, thanked the NDDC Chief Executive Officer for including the university among beneficiaries of the commission.

She said: "The approach road into this campus was an embarrassing feature of our university and you have saved us from this embarrassment because you are our own. You shared this embarrassment. The University of Uyo will not forget this gesture. Thank you sir and may the good Lord bless you and your future endeavours. "
