The President of Niger Delta Youth Peace Builders, Comrade Chibuike Emmanuel, has pledged his support for the nomination of Chief Dimgba Eruba as Abia State’s representative in the Board of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
In a statement issued on Saturday, Comrade Emmanuel said he was aware of claims that Chief Eruba is not a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), but he said these claims are false,as he has personally witnessed Chief Eruba’s active participation in the APC, both during the campaign and electioneering process.
“I have no doubt that Chief Eruba is a loyal and dedicated party member,” Comrade Emmanuel said. “He will represent the interests of Abia State and the APC well in the NDDC Board.”
Comrade Emmanuel also commended President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for making the wise decision to nominate Chief Eruba as Abia State representative.
According to him, Chief Dimgba Eruba is a seasoned technocrat with a wealth of experience in the oil and gas sector. He is also a well-known philanthropist and community leader.
“I am confident that Chief Eruba will use his skills and experience to bring much-needed development to Abia State and the Niger Delta region,” Comrade Emmanuel said.
He, however, urged all APC members in Abia State to support Chief Eruba’s nomination. “He is the best person for the job, and he will make us all proud,” Comrade Emmanuel added.
Comrade Emmanuel also acknowledged the efforts of Ben Kalu, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, in ensuring Chief Eruba’s nomination. He said Ben Kalu has been a strong advocate for peace and unity within the party, and he has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of Abia State.
“I urge all APC members in Abia State to embrace peace and collaboration as a way forward instead of divisive actions.
“We must all work together to build a stronger party and a better future for our state.”
Another member of the APC, Steven Emmanuel, pledged his support for the NDDC board nominee, who he described as a deep thinker, educated, accessible and smart individual, who devoted so much time to campaign for the President in Abia State.
He said Chief Dimgba Eruba’s dedication and support for the Abia State APC, impressed the party’s leadership to nominate him as the state representative in NDDC.
Emmanuel who regretted his initial statement about Chief Eruba, pointed out that after much verification, he is convinced that Chief Eruba is qualified to represent Abia State in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
