NCDMB denies relocation of HQ from Bayelsa


The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) has dismissed speculation that it plans to relocate its headquarters from Yenagoa, Bayelsa State to Abuja or Lagos, The Guardian reports.

The Executive Secretary, Simbi Wabote, disclosed this in Yenagoa, after the Ijaw Youth Council (Central Zone) staged a temporary shut down of its office on Thursday over allegations that it had opened offices in Lagos and Abuja and was working to leave the state.

The Executive Secretary who received a delegation of the IYC World Wide, led by its President, Mr. Pereotubo Oweillami, described the insinuation as “wild rumours and figments of some persons’ imaginations.”

Wabote, who therefore challenged the IYC national leadership to manage their zonal organs and curtail their overbearing tendencies, explained that the board’s new corporate headquarters in Bayelsa was nearing completion.
