In the midst of the festive ambiance adorned with joyous celebrations and luminous decorations, Chief Samuel Ogbuku, PhD., the CEO/Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), extends heartfelt felicitations to Christian brethren across Nigeria and the esteemed communities of the Niger Delta Region.
As the year draws to a close, anticipation for the Christmas celebrations is heightened, accompanied by a poignant reflection on the virtues exemplified by the birth of Christ.
In a statement released by the Board and Management of NDDC, expressed its sincere gratitude to dedicated stakeholders whose cooperation has been instrumental in maintaining peace within the region. This peace, in turn, forms the bedrock for continuous growth and sustainable community development.

However, Chief Ogbuku implored all Nigerians to reaffirm their commitment to serving humanity with an uplifted spirit as they step into the New Year.
‘‘As the holiday cheers permeate the air, warm wishes are extended to all Niger Deltans and Nigerians for a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with happiness and prosperity.
