Protest in Port Harcourt Over Shutdown of NDDC

Youths and concerned Niger Delta groups on Monday stormed the office of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), in
Port Harcourt, to protest against the seal off of the Commission’s corporate headquarters.
The Rivers State Internal Revenue Service had on Wednesday sealed off the corporate headquarters of NDDC in Port Harcourt . The agency accused the NDDC of failure to pay withholding tax of about running N50bn.
The protesters insist that the move by the Rivers government is political and maintained that they would resist any unnecessary political interference in the affairs of the NDDC.
