Why Pondei Should Be Arrested For Sharing N1.5 bn To NDDC Staff

The Acting Managing Director of the NDDC, Mr. Pondei, on the resumed hearing by the house of representatives committee probing mismanagement of N81 bn by the NDDC, said he spent about N1.5 bn as palliatives for staff of the commission.

It could be recalled that Pondei collapsed while responding to questions by the investigating panel on spending made by the NDDC.

The NDDC boss is alleged to have mismanaged funds in excess of N81 bn between February and May this year.

It is wrong and unethical for staff of the NDDC who are receiving their salaries as and when due to be given palliatives due to the effects of the corona virus pandemic.

Palliatives is for Nigerians that lose their means of livelihoods due to the lockdown orchestrated by the corona virus pandemic, Nigerians working in private firms that didn't received salaries during the lockdown and those that were disengaged and retrenched due to unfavorable business conditions.

There is no evidence that NDDC staff didn't received salaries as and when due during the lockdown orchestrated by the corona virus pandemic as such, there is no basis for the acting MD, Pondei, to share N1.5 bn to them.

It is unethical and as such, Pondei should be prosecuted and the staff of the NDDC should be compel to make a refund.

The NDDC did not give palliatives to the poor and vulnerable in the Niger Delta but resolved to shared billions to themselves.
