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

Recall that Pondei had angered the lawmakers after walking out on them on Thursday at an investigative hearing put together by the House of Representatives.

The new summons comes after the former MD of the NDDC, Joy Nunieh, on Friday gave her testimony at the House Committee on Public Hearing via Zoom.

Furthermore, Head of Research at the Act for Positive Transformation Initiative (APTI), Kolawole Johnson has alleged that some officials of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) paid monies meant for students under scholarship into their personal accounts.

Kolawole revealed this during his appearance before the House of Representatives Committee on the NDDC, on Friday.

He said he discovered the alleged fraud through detailed investigation on his part, and alleged that Commission’s Executive Director of Project, Dr Cairo Ojougboh and Managing Director, Professor Kemebradikumo Pondei were among officials who diverted the scholarship monies into their private pocket.

“They (students) kept crying that their dues are not being paid and they are being locked out by their schools,” the researcher stated.
