“Before then, you said you have no link of any contract between yourself and NDDC, your job is just to supervise, but correspondences show you have been approving forensic audits and contracts.”

DAILY POST had earlier reported that the House of Representatives is currently investigating the NDDC over alleged fraud, mismanagement of funds among others.

Akpabio appeared before the House of Representative Committee which is investigating the alleged misappropriation of funds in the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.

Recall that the committee had on Friday summoned Akpabio, following allegations levelled against him by the former Managing Director of the NDDC, Joy Nunieh.


The House Committee is investigating alleged mismanagement of funds by the current NDDC’s Interim Management Committee (IMC).

Nunieh had accused Akpabio of fraud, padding, sexual harassment, among others.

However, Akpabio has ordered his lawyer to commence legal actions against Nunieh over the said allegations.
