The House Committee on NDDC is investigating how the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the NDDC allegedly squandered N40 billion within three months.

The committee had on Friday summoned Pondei and the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, to appear before it today (Monday) to answer questions on how budgetary allocations to the agency had been spent.

Testifying before the committee on Friday, the Commission’s immediate past acting managing director, Joy Nunieh who joined the panel via Zoom, had accused Akpabio of contract scams and other corrupt practices in Commission.

She also claimed that only about N8 billion was spent by the agency throughout her tenure, before Akpabio allegedly removed her for refusing to do his selfish bidding.
