As a way of fulfilling its statutory and corporate responsibilities in the Niger Delta states in the country, the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has donated a 36 seater coaster bus and 1,000 KVA generator to the Bayelsa state owned Niger Delta University, Wilberforce Island as well as embarking on a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of a model hostess for students of the university.
