NDDC seeks synergy with Rivers Police Command



The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has solicited for the cooperation of the Rivers Police Command toward securing oil pipelines in the state from vandalism.

The Rivers Representative on the NDDC Board, Chief Tony Okocha, made the request on Friday, when he visited the command’s headquarters in Port Harcourt.

Okocha said he came to familiarise with the command and also evolve mutual cooperation that would ensure adequate security for oil pipelines across the state.

He commended the command for its “doggedness and sagacity” in combating crime and criminality head on in the state.

He promised that the commission would continue to support the police to ensure that they perform their duties effectively and optimally.

Responding, the Commissioner of Police, Olatunji Disu, thanked the NDDC commissioner for the visit.

Disu promised to ensure a smooth working relationship between the command and the commission.

He promised that the command would always respond swiftly whenever its services are needed by the commission.
