A group under the aegis of Concerned Niger Delta Youths on Thursday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to set up a panel to investigate and persecute corrupt persons in the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.

The group made the call during a rally at the Effurun round-about in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.

The convener of the group, Comrade Israel Joe who spoke about the rot in the NDDC, insisted that the president set a panel of Inquiry to investigate arrest and prosecute everyone that has been indicted or involved in the NDDC scam.

Joe decried the way Niger Delta leaders have turned the commission into an Automated Teller Machine, ATM with different passwords in forms of contracts and inflation of ghost projects.

The group which gathered a large crowd also seeks the intervention of foreign bodies in the forensic audit just as it urged the Federal Government to ensure the National Assembly members implicated are prosecuted.

Comrade Kelvin Ejumudo also stated that the careless spending in the NDDC has led to underdevelopment in both human and infrastructure.

Ejumudo said the healthcare, education sectors and others suffer because of the looting in the commission.

A young lady simply identified as Ami who in a chat newsmen dramatize her anger with Niger Delta leaders and warned that if things are not rightly put in place, the youths may someday rebel against their leaders who have perpetually mortgaged their future.
