Apkabio: Reactions Trail President Buhari's Response On NDDC Alleged Corruption Under Apkabio Watch

President Muhammadu Buhari has responded to the corrupt allegation surrounding Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) under the watch of Senator Apkabio, who is the Minister of Niger Delta.

President Buhari has assured Nigerians that he will get to root of the matter and said he will not relent until he find why the region is not developing despite the large fund going to there from the federation.

President Buhari said he has made it clear to the National Assembly and our investigating and law enforcement agencies to pursue better coordination in their work, so that the shared goal of ensuring sanity, transparency and accountability of dedicated funds can be achieved.

"I am determined to get to the root of the problem undermining the development of the Niger Delta, in spite of the enormous national resources dedicated to this annually. This administration remains committed to bringing rapid, even and sustainable development to the region.

All investigating agencies and auditing firms currently working collaboratively with National Assembly Committees to audit and reposition the NDDC must act with urgency and a sense of purpose, and ensure that I am kept informed of any and all actions being taken.

Our determination to entrench transparency and accountability applies not only to the NDDC, but also to all other institutions of the Federal Government. We will not relent," President Buhari said.

Recall that Ms. Nunieh, former NDDC Boss accused Apkabio of removing her from office because she refused to yield to his s€xual advances and corruption motives.

She also alleges that she refused to swear to his oath of allegiance.
