NDDC Donates N130m Residential Quarters to Police



The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), has donated a block of two-storey building, worth N130 million, to the Nigerian Police in Port Harcourt.

Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, Acting Managing Director, NDDC, who inaugurated the building, said the project which was awarded in 2013, cost the commission N130 million.

She said the residential quarters, made up of a block of six-three bedroom flats, would improve the living conditions and boost the morale of police personnel in the state.

“This marching order entails that we must immediately begin to complete projects to serve the purpose for which they were conceived and improve the living conditions of the people.

“The residential quarters awarded in 2013 at a cost of N130 million was part of a broad-based partnership with the Nigeria Police, aimed to add value to the living conditions of its personnel.

“It is our belief that this building will boost the morale of police personnel and improved security and economic situation of the state and region.

“The building is first in what we intend doing in the coming months to ensure effective partnership with the police and others for improved security in the region”, she said.

Semenitari said the commission was collaborating with all major stakeholders on ways to improve economic situation and end rising insecurity in the region.

She said the commission was compiling list of all uncompleted projects in the nine states of the region with a view to completing them to reduce sufferings of the people.

According to her, President Muhammadu Buhari is interested and committed to the peace and sustainable development of the region.

Mr. Musa Kimo, the Rivers State Police Commissioner, commended NDDC, saying that the building would reduce accommodation deficit faced by police personnel in the state.

He said the building would accommodate senior police officers, while assuring that the accommodation would be properly maintained.
