Godswill Akpabio And Others To Be Investigated Over Alleged Misappropriation
The House of Representatives has summoned former governor of Akwa Ibon and Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Godswill Akpabio and members of the new Interim Management Committee in order to launch a probe into the alleged mismanagement of funds and other unwholesome practices in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC)
The House also mandated its Committee on NDDC to investigate all issues relating to misapplication and misappropriation of funds, especially N40bn spent under two months by the Commission and report back to the House. This was after the resolution passed after debating a motion sponsored by the Deputy House Leader Peter Akpatason at plenary on Tuesday.
The committee is to conduct a comprehensive investigation into all procurements and financial transactions of the commission for this fiscal year to ascertain compliance with relevant provisions of the law and as well investigate adherence to the Act setting up the Commission, in the layoff and engagement of key management personnel.
