NDDC warns against fake agric empowerment scheme
« on: October 14, 2016, 05:22:02 PM »

The Niger Delta Development Commission has warned the public to ignore forms for enrolment for agricultural empowerment programme purportedly being circulated by the commission.

The acting Managing Director of the commission, Mrs Ibim Semenitari, gave the warning on Friday in Port Harcourt in a statement issued by Chijioke Amu-Nnadi, the commission’s Head of Corporate Affairs.She said that the fictitious form urged residents to enrol for a non-existent empowerment programme in agriculture.

Semenitari said the commission’s Directorate of Agriculture and Fisheries was not privy to the issuance of the forms, describing the development as ‘a scam.’

She said, “I wish to inform the public that the commission did not authorise anybody to embark on solicitation for prospective beneficiaries of the imaginary empowerment programme.

“Similarly, the commission did not permit or delegate any individual to solicit, recommend or collect money from the public in the name of empowerment.

“The commission frowns at this unfortunate development where the name of the acting Managing Director is used to defraud Nigerians.”

The NDDC boss expressed regret that some dubious individuals had used her identity to exploit unemployed youths.

She said she that she had vigorously pursued several empowerment programmes since she assumed office.
