The acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Kemebradikumo Daniel Pondei has reportedly left the hospital where he was rushed to after he slumped during the panel session at Abuja.

KanyiDaily had earlier reported how Pondei slumped during interrogation by the House of Representatives Committee over alleged missing of N40 billion naira.

Mr Pondei slumped when he was answering questions posed by the investigative panel over alleged misappropriation of funds amounting to billions of Naira.

According to Channels TV, Daniel Pondei already left the hospital where he was taken on Monday night, July 20, 2020.

A statement issued by the Director of Corporate Affairs of the NDDC, Charles Odili, said Pondei was ill for the past two weeks, a development that made his doctors advised him to stay clear from the probe.

The statement added that the NDDC boss collapsed because he ignored his doctors’ advice not to attend the session. It reads:

“The commission wishes to disclose that Prof Pondei has been ill for the past two weeks. This morning, his condition deteriorated, and his doctors advised against attending the hearing.

“However, he ignored his doctors’ advice because of the realisation that his accusers will use his absence at the hearing to soil his name and reputation.

“He thought he could make it through the hearing and take care of his health later. As it turned out, his doctors were right. Prof Pondei is in a stable condition at a clinic in Abuja.”

Meanwhile, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has said that Pondei will not appear before the committee again.

According to Gbajabiamila, the investigative committee will adopt the written response of the NDDC managing director.
