NDDC boss rejects entreaties to contest 2023 presidential race

The Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Sole Administrator, Dr Efiong  Akwa, has dismissed various entreaties enjoining him to join the forthcoming 2023 presidential race.

Akwa, who turned down the entreaties at an occasion to celebrate the New Year Thanksgiving in Amamong, Okobo Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, said he does not have the capacity for such an exalted position of governance for now.

According to him, the likes of Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Dr Godswill Akpabio, with proven experience in the act of governance should be encouraged and supported to run for the presidency rather than himself, adding that he needs to remain focused on his current job to deliver the goods instead of chasing shadows.

He expressed gratitude to God for preserving him despite all manners of frivolous petitions, just as he acknowledged the supports of President Muhammadu Buhari and Akpabio.
