Reps Committee On NDDC Summons Akpabio, Pondei

The House Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has summoned the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Godswill Akpabio, to appear and make presentations before it on Monday, July 20, 2020.

The committee also summoned the Managing Director of the commission Professor Kemebradikumo Pondei to appear before it on the same day.

This comes after the former MD of the NDDC, Joy Nunieh, on Friday gave her testimony at the House Committee on Public Hearing via zoom.

Ms. Nunieh was billed to appear before the committee on Thursday but her house was besieged by some security agents, hindering her from making a physical appearance.

In her presentation which she made to the committee, she defended herself against allegations of corruption, arguing that there was no contractor that paid bribes. 

Debunking allegations of fraud and attempts to filibuster the Commission, Nunieh said she did not touch funds meant for the Niger Delta People.

The House of Representatives is carrying out an investigation into alleged mismanagement of funds by the current interim management committee (IMC) of the NDDC.

According to allegations, the interim management of the NDDC has mishandled about N40billion
