Former NDDC Boss, Timi Alaibe Soar High @ 60

Published

on

 

Ndutimi Alaibe’s name resonates with excellence, intelligence and grand opulence. He began to shine like a star when Nigeria returned to democracy in 1999 when the then President Olusegun Obasanjo created the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC to impact the lives of people within the Oil Minerals Producing Areas Development Commission (OMPADEC).

 

Along with other bigwigs, Timi, a seasoned accountant with Peat Marwick Ogunde and Ani, now “KPMG,” was inaugurated as executive director, finance and administration of the 19man board that will oversee the affairs of the board that will take care of the oil-producing states, to boost multi-sectoral development in the oil-bearing states. He served the commission with his whole heart. He was amiable and accessible. He ensured that the hope and aspiration of President Obasanjo were carried out with rapt development within the axis. He also grew his resume politically.

With his dedication and service to the work, being familiar with the region spread across 5000 communities, covering 185 local government areas and collectively straddling nine states in the region, in three geopolitical zones, the south-west, south-south and south-east, Alaibe was appointed managing director in 2007 till 2009. President Yar’Adua in 2009 in a bid to demobilisation, rehabilitation and reintegration of ex-militants through the Amnesty Programme, appointed Alaibe Adviser on Niger Delta Affairs and coordinator. He started testing his popularity in 2003, contesting the gubernatorial primary against Diepreye Alamieyeseigha. In 2007 and 2011, He also threw his hat in the ring for the same office. In 2019, he contested against the incumbent governor of Bayelsa State, Duoye Diri, in a very controversial primary election which declared Diri the winner. Governor Diri and Alaibe later formed an alliance to work for the progress of the state.

The Accounting graduate from the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, (RSUST) celebrated his 60th birthday with a massive soiree last week on the 10th of June as top guests and billionaire businessmen and women converged to celebrate with the birthday boy in the company of his children and grandchildren. Decked in their colourful attire, the Alaibe family danced into the hall as Beejay Sax thrilled them with melodious tunes. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo presented Alaibe with a book written for him by 29 of his friends. Kizz Daniel also made a surprise performance at the soiree as he feted those who attended to very sumptuous meals and assorted drinks. Those spotted at the event were; Atedo Peterside, Allen Onyema, Musa Danjuma, Ifiesimama Sekibo, Tundun Abiola, Austyn Ogannah, Nina Adimora, Sholaye Jeremi, Scott Tommy, Bola Awosika, Terry Waya, Olumide Akpata, Julie Pinnick, Chief James Ibori, Donald Duke, Fidelis Anosike, Rita Dominic-Anosike, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, Tony Elumelu, Nkiru Anumudu and a host of others.

RE: VIO/STATE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT AGENCIES DO NOT HAVE POWERS TO ARREST OVERLOADED VEHICLES AND OTHER TRAFFIC OFFENDERS, FRSC DISSOCIATES ITSELF FROM COMMENTS BY ITS OPERATIVE

Published

By

The Federal Road Safety Corps wishes to make a pertinent clarification regarding the pronouncement by the Unit Commander, Central Business District Unit Command, Assistant Corps Commander IL Ibrahim, that Vehicle Inspection Officers, otherwise known as Directorate of Road Traffic Services, do not have the right to arrest road traffic violators, including overloaded vehicles and motorists caught using phones while driving.

The general public is advised to disregard the statement as it had no approval of the Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali Biu and does not in anyway reflect the corporate or general position of the Corps.

It is important for the public know that the laws establishing VIOs/State Traffic Management Agencies give them the statutory mandate to make arrests on different offences depending on the state within which they operate. As such, the agencies should be given the maximum cooperation for the enhancement of safety on our roads.

On this note and in line with sustaining the Corps’ resolve that road safety is a collective responsibility, and in acknowledgement of the roles the State Traffic Management Agencies like the Vehicle Inspection *OFFICERS* play in complementing the statutory responsibilities of the FRSC through enforcement of traffic laws, the Corps Marshal has ordered the immediate withdrawal of the Unit Commander to the national headquarters for necessary administrative and disciplinary actions.

The public is admonished to always comply with all established traffic regulations and cooperate with security agencies deployed to maintain law and order on the highways, irrespective of their corporate mandate.
