Dr. Cairo Ojougboh , executive director of Projects, Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has received a confidence vote from a Coalition of Civil Society Group Known as Network of Civil Society Organizations in Nigeria.

The group passed the vote of confidence on Monday shortly after its meeting amidst call by a women group for Ojougboh’s sack.

According to the group, Ojougboh remains a qualified Deltan from an oil producing area.


This was contained in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Comrade Victor Kalu and made available to journalists in Abuja.

The Civil Society Group also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for reshuffling the Interim Management Committee of NDDC and leaving very competent hands like Dr. Cairo Ojougboh to hold the position of the Executive Director of Projects in order to achieve the needed goals. 

The statement reads in parts; “We are a coalition of civil society groups working to strengthening Democratic values, promotion of peaceful coexistence and good governance through performance awareness creation. We therefore after carefully following the performances of the Acting Executive Director Projects, NDDC, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh and other members of the Interim Board; we hereby pass a vote of confidence on him (Ojougboh) for exposing corrupt practices and correcting the wrongs in the Commission. So many leakages have been exposed in within a short period of the Interim Board”.   


The COS while noting that they have evidence that Dr. Cairo Ojougboh has a good background in Engineering from the Auchi Polytechnic, however warned detractors to desist from those cheap blackmail on Dr. Cairo Ojougboh with plans to slow down the speedy performances of the Interim Board of NDDC.
