Break Down Of All The Money Senate Adhoc Committee Is Probing NDDC For.

NDDC which mean Niger Delta Development Commission was established to for see the development of all Nine Niger Delta states and money are always allocated to them buy it seems like some people turned it into money making organisation.

It was established by Olusegun Obasanjo in the year 2000 and headquartered in Port Harcourt with the sole aim of development oil rich Niger Delta states.

Here is a breakdown of the probe into NDDC IMCs since Joy Nunieh era by the Senate adhoc Committee 

N81.495 billion was spent between October 29, 2019 and May 31, 2020.

N3.14 billion was spent on COVID-19 pandemic as relief funds.

A director in the commission received N10 million as covid-19 palliatives when he did not test positive for the virus.

 Two other staffers collected N7 million each.

 N3 million was given to each of 148 other staffers, N1.5 million each to 157 other category of staffers , N1 million each to 497 others and N600,000.00 each to the last category of 464 other staffers.

 N475 million was given to the Police for purchase of face masks and Hand Sanitizers in the Nine Niger Delta states.

N1.3 billion was used for Community relations. 

N1.956 billion was used for Lassa fever.

N23.8 billion was used for Consultancy fees.

N486million was used for Duty Travel Allowance.

N85.6 million was paid in April to some NDDC officials to attend the graduation ceremony of some Niger-Delta students in the United Kingdom event last June.

Our problem/ hindrance to development is really some privileged element in power.
