Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed has noted with delight that the North East Development Commission (NEDC) is one of the good legacies President Muhammadu Buhari would leave behind next year when he eventually leaves office.

The Bauchi State governor explained that the commission is one of the best institutions created in order to deepen the institutionalisation of poverty reduction and disaster management initiatives.

Speaking when he received food and non-food items donated by the NEDC to Bauchi State Government for onward distribution to victims of flood and other disasters in the state, Governor Bala fortunately enough noted that the commission was created with competent pioneer staff.

He lauded the staff for doing their job in a manner that they would not be confronted with the problems and challenges of their sister organisations like the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Governor Bala attributed the smooth functioning of the commission to the ways and manner by which it is discharging its interventionist responsibilities, as well as projects and programmes that is stabilising the Northeast sub-region bombarded by insurgency.

“Yes, we have been confronted by a monumental humanitarian crisis, but so far what you have been doing for us, we must confess has been salutary and we cannot have it better than this.
