The Interim Management Committees (IMCs)  of the  Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC)  have been described by the  Secretary-General of the Ijaw Youth Council(IYC), Frank Pukon,  as  channels of mismanagement of the commission’s resources.

Pukon, who is believed to align with the zonal chairmen of the IYC and the spokesman, Ebilade Ekerefe,  vowed in a statement on Monday that the council would ensure that a substantive board for the NDDC was appointed by the Federal Government.

The zonal chairmen of the IYC and   Ekerefe had last week  insisted on  locking up the NDDC headquarters in Port Harcourt, Rivers State in   protest against Akwa’s appointment as the NDDC helmsman.

. The threat was contrary to an earlier call by the IYC President Peter  Igbifa on all aggrieved Ijaw groups to stay the action pending the outcome of a stakeholders meeting slated for the end of this month.
