He also called on the National Assembly, NASS, to consider amending the Act establishing NDDC to forbid heads of the commission from contesting elective positions.
Pere Luke, in a chat with Vanguard Wednesday, said constituting a new board of NDDC by the minister amounted to duplication of offices.
The Federal Government had set up the committee last Tuesday to run the affairs of the commission.
