N81 Billion NDDC Scanda:- Don Jazzy says Nigeria still has a long way to go

Mavin ceo, Don Jazzy expressed his feelings about the latest controversy in the NDDC.
After reading an article about it, the award-winning music act took his Instagram page to share what he feels.

Some, he says, do to blame the incumbent leaders because they just wait to be in position so they can steal for themselves.

Jazzy talked about how the Agency, established in the year 2000 to correct the errors of the OMPADEC, turned out to be this way.

He regretted how many died only for the cause of the Niger Delta and how the future generation will feel after reading about its past, which is riddled with unabated corruption and rot.

He wrote: “THOUGHTS ON NDDC”:-

I read through this in order to know the resolution of the Senate in the National Assembly on the back of the # NDDCprobe and so much comes to mind.

The birth of NDDC in 2000 during the rule of former president Obasanjo was supposed to correct the mistakes made under OMPADEC in the 90s but here we are, still digging the pit that we find ourselves after two decades.

In our nation now, corruption has become so systemic that we are pilfering huge public funds with reckless abandonment.

We like to criticize the elite and the govt for the country’s sad state when so many of us just wait for our turns to be in public positions and to become rogues.

Let’s be clear here – NDDC ‘s 20 years had a lot of key grassroots actors from the Niger Delta region who supposedly would understand the people’s plight.

A very great opportunity for this region to be a model for the entire nation was wasted by a few greedy people whose goal was to turn the patrimony of the Nigerians to their personal property.

We constantly talk about uncompleted and abandoned projects that were not adequately procured by unidentified contractors.

Are our consciences so unchanged that even with the increasing level of deprivation and the dearth of infrastructure across the world, we continue to walk this catastrophic path?

How would future generations of Nigerians feel if they read this unabated history of rot? Blessed memory Ken Saro-Wiwa, lost his life for the cause of this region.

When the dead could see how things worked out after their deaths, will he be proud of it? NDDC is only one of many government departments with this massive financial recklessness over the years.

I can’t even imagine how shocked we would be if it were perused by several other government agencies? Not only is this tragic but it’s still very unfortunate. My people, we’ve got a very long way to go.

THOUGHTS ON NDDC : I read through this to know the Senate's resolution on the back of the #NDDCprobe in the National assembly and so many things come to mind. NDDC's birth in 2000 during former president Obasanjo's regime was supposed to right the wrongs made under OMPADEC in the 90s but here we are, still digging the hole we found ourselves after two decades. Corruption has now become so endemic in our nation that we pilfer huge public funds with reckless abandon. We like to blame the elite and the govt for the sorry state of the country while so many of us are just waiting for our turns to be in public positions and become rogues. Let's be clear here – 20 years of NDDC have had many key grassroots' actors from the Niger Delta region who would supposedly understand the plight of the people. A very great opportunity for this region to be a model for the entire nation was wasted by a few selfish people whose intention was to convert Nigerians' patrimony to their personal wealth. We keep talking about unimplemented and abandoned projects by unidentifed contractors that were not rightly procured. Are our consciences so untouched that we continue treading this disastrous path even with the rising poverty level and the dearth of infrastructure across the country? How would future generations of Nigerians feel when they read this history of unabated rot? Ken Saro-Wiwa of blessed memory, lost his life for this region's cause. If the dead could see after their demise, would he be proud of how things have turned out? NDDC, with this huge financial recklessness over the years, is just one of many government agencies. I can't even imagine how surprised we would be if many other government agencies are perused this way? This isn't just sad but also very unfortunate. My people, we have a very long way to go.
