President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday 16th July 2020 charged Agencies, Committees, and Auditing firms on the need to synergize for effective auditing of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) funds.

He also charged all bodies involved in investigation to keep him abreast of any and all decisions taken.

He made the announcement through his official Twitter handle.

He said.
"I am determined to get to the root of the problem undermining the development of the Niger Delta, in spite of the enormous national resources dedicated to this annually.

"This administration remains committed to bringing rapid, even and sustainable development to the region."

"In line with this, I have made it clear to the National Assembly and our investigating and law enforcement agencies to pursue better coordination in their work, so that the shared goal of ensuring sanity, transparency and accountability of dedicated funds can be achieved."

"All investigating agencies and auditing firms currently working collaboratively with National Assembly Committees to audit and reposition the NDDC must act with urgency and a sense of purpose, and ensure that I am kept informed of any and all actions being taken."

"Our determination to entrench transparency and accountability applies not only to the NDDC, but also to all other institutions of the Federal Government. We will not relent."
