Furthermore, the Urhobo group commended Ibori for championing the fight for Resource Control, adding that this move resulted in the establishment of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) by the Federal Government as an interventionist agency for the development of oil-producing communities.

They prayed for many more fruitful years to come as God grants him long life, good health and wisdom to keep navigating in Nigeria’s political and business space.
