Against the cry of marginalisation of Ondo State by some stakeholders, the Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, has declared that the state had not been marginalised by the commission.

Semenitari made the declaration while speaking with journalists in Akure, the Ondo State capital, on Monday during a two-day training for the top management staff of the commission on procurement and due process mechanism,

According to her, the state had a preferential treatment in 2016 Budget than some other states which were short-changed this year to ensure those which produce less oil benefit more from the commission.

She pointed out that projects award in the NDDC states were subject to the production quota policy and Act of the commission, which she said, stipulated that the states with higher production of oil get more projects among the existing nine oil producing states in the nation.
