The ongoing probe by the lawmakers over mismanagement and embezzlement of the Niger Delta Development Commission, (NDDC) fund is getting tough as the stakeholders that occupy the top position in the commission are currently in the hot seat.

It has been reported that the interim chairman of the commission in the person of Professor Kemebradikumo Pondei has just slumped.

No doubt, this could be as a result of the tension. Before he slumped he said that he could only give an account of 59 billion nairas out of the 81 billion nairas spent by the commission.

The Director of the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) Prof Kemebradikumo Pondei on Monday told the House of Representatives panel testing the commission that he could just give a record of N59 billion out of the N81 billion spent by the office. 


As indicated by him, he was not responsible for the office, when the full entirety of N81 billion being tested was spent, and it would not be reasonable to solicit him to give account from the full total.

Professor Kemebradikumo Pondei is a Professor of Medicine at the Niger Delta University, and former Provost, College of Health Sciences of the institution.

Why do you think the managing director fainted?
