Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Chief Samuel Ogbuku, has described Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Bayelsa State as peaceful.
Ogbuku stated this while speaking with journalists shortly after casting his vote at Unit 001 in Ward 3 of Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
He said that in spite of the initial glitches, the Independent National Electoral Commission was able to put their machines in order and commended the commission for a job well done.
The NDDC boss expressed confidence that the All Progressives Congress will emerge victorious in the election.
He noted that information from communities around the state shows that the process went on peacefully.
But Ogbuku used the opportunity to assure the people of the Niger Delta that he would use his good office to extend the dividends of democracy to the Niger Delta states.
He assured that the ‘renewed hope’ agenda of President Bola Tinubu’s administration will touch the people of the Niger Delta.
The NDDC MD also visited his community and inspected some ongoing projects.
