Immediate past Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, has been named the acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mrs. Semenitari, an award-winner journalist and media manager, apart from serving under the administration of Governor Rotimi Amaechi also served in the Communications Directorate of the Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation.
Confirming the appointment, a close aide to the former commissioner confirmed that she is to function in acting capacity pending the appointment of a substantive managing director.
Semenitari is married to Mr. Henry Semenitari, a former Managing Director, Unity Bank Plc, and himself, a global award-winner banker.
In a related development, President Buhari has sacked the Chairman of the commission, Mr. Bassey Dan Abia.
Dan Abia, an indigene of Akwa Ibom State, was appointed by former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2013.
