The Executive Director of Projects, Niger Delta Development Commission, Dr. Cairo Ojuougboh, disclosed that the NDDC spent a whooping sum of N340m naira on compensation in communities. He revealed this information during a chat with the Arise television station.
The interview became amusing when the boss was asked why 340m was given; he said, "there is 186 local government in the Niger Delta region, and we have the list of contacts in all the local government. Usually, when the forensic auditor arrives, people chase them out of place.
"So, indigenes are appointed as pointers which will stay in the local government. All those jobs there are abandoned, they will go and show them where the site is."
He was then asked if the chunk sum of money was the ideal reward for the natural act.
"You must need pointers, and again, the auditors must have friendly people on the ground who will build synergy for them and the locals," he said.
When asked about how the commission got so much money to spend on frivolities, he replied.
"There is nothing like that extra-budget spending because we have submitted the 2020 budget to the National Assembly, and we are allowed to spend 50 percent of the budget itself."
This revelation has sparked a lot of outrage across Nigeria, which has led to citizens firing shots at all involved in the mess from the first day.
A Human Right Lawyer and Activist said, "how can you pay people to identify projects that you awarded? It does not make sense to me. What manner of criminality is this? Even if the project is nonexistent, there must be documentation.
