UGHELLI— Former chairman of Isoko South Local Government Area, Delta State, Chief Iduh Amadhe, yesterday, blamed the in-fighting between board members of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, on its Managing Director, Mr Chibuzor Ugwoha.

Amandhe who commended President Goodluck Jonathan for setting up the probe panel into the internal crisis in the commission, urged the panel to work towards achieving the purpose for which it was established.

The former council boss, who was reacting to the panel to investigate the alleged N69 billion scam rocking the commission, said that since the appointment f Mr Ugwoha, the commission had not embarked on any meaningful project.

He commended government’s move to unravel the mystery behind the crisis, adding that the action of government was welcomed.

He lamented that the commission was not working in consultation with oil producing communities in the region.

According to him, “the commission did not witness this kind of crisis when the likes of Dr. Godwin Omene, Chief Emmanuel Aguariavwodo and Chief Timi Alaibe headed it.”
