Newly appointed Minister of State for Niger Delta Affairs, Sharon Ikeazor, has stated that she would bring the experiences she garnered in the course of her service to the nation from various establishments to bear in the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs.
The Minister of State, who was redeployed from the Ministry of Environment, stated this while being received in the Ministry in Abuja on Wednesday.
“My coming to Niger Delta is like home coming, when we talk about environmental degradation, community development; it is the Niger Delta region, the experience I had in the Ministry of Environment, I’ll bring into the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs,” she said.
She further expressed gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for the opportunity granted her to head the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate, PTAD, stating that the job was most fulfilling, as she was able to impact lives of the senior citizens
“I was assigned to another Ministry that their work impact on the lives of the whole Nigeria, the whole world, the environment we depend on, the air we breathe, food we eat…that was another fulfilling work,” she added.
Ikeazor thus pledged her unflinching support to actualizing the mandate and vision of the ministry for the good of Nigerians and the Niger Deltans within the short period in office.
“We will all serve at the pleasure of Mr. President, anywhere I work, I made sure I deliver on the legacy of President Muhammadu Buhari”, she stated.
