A group under the auspices of Creek Dragons, CD, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to reappoint Simbi Wabote as the executive director, Nigerian Content Development Monitoring Board, NCDMB. The group urged the President and Timpre Sylva, minister of state for petroleum resources, to disregard the call by another group not to reappoint Wabote.
The group in a statement signed by Freedom Adowei, its president general, maintained that the Ijaws and indeed Nigerians were comfortable and proud of the leadership of the current executive secretary of NCDMB. He described Wabote’s leadership as impeccable and result-oriented.
The group warned some ex-militant leaders not to hide under the umbrella of MEND to front their personal interests, stressing that they should be bold enough to use their names to confront and chastise their interests. “Simbi Wabote, Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Content Development Monitoring Board, is not found wanting in any way, he should be reappointed to continue his good works for the board and the Ijaw nation as well.
“Anyone calling for his non-reappointment is an enemy of the Ijaw nation; we are therefore urging our dynamic minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timpre Sylva, to completely disregard such unproductive and fake calls, crying for the downfall of fellow Ijaw man against the larger interest of Ijaw nation. Simbi has done more than enough to deserve whatever appointment in that board and beyond,” it stated.
