NDDC Staff Test Positive To Covid-19.

The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has announced that some of its staff had tested positive to COVID-19.

The commission’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Mr Charles Odili, stated that the NDDC embarked on Coronavirus test for its staff after the death of its acting Executive Director of Finance, Chief Ibanga Etang, on May 28 from COVID-19 complications.

This prompted the management of NDDC to shut-down its operations for two weeks to enable it fumigate its head office and directed its management staff to self-isolate for 14-days.

Odili said that the NDDC was collaborating with the Rivers State Public Health Emergency team and the NCDC to conduct COVID-19 test for its staff and their families.

However, a few positive results have been recorded, he stated.

The NDDC spokesman said that test for all members of staff would start on June 9.
