The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, on Monday, accused the House of Representatives Committee investigating financial mismanagement in the Niger Delta Development Commission, of bullying him.
But when the hearing resumed, the committee Chairman, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, asked the minister if the three major projects he had carried out had the approval of the Federal Executive Council. Akpabio, who was interrupted while answering the question, said, “Mr Chairman, the condition, where we are in now, does not require bullying, with due respect.”
The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has said the former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Joy Nunieh, did not participate in the mandatory one year service of the National Youth Service Corps.
The minister, who told the House of Representatives Committee investigating financial mismanagement in the NDDC on Monday, also said the ex-managing director had no exemption letter.
When asked about his fracas with Nunieh, the minister said, “The former Managing Director of the NDDC was relieved of her appointment when I received a letter from the then Chief of Staff (may his soul rest in peace) that she did not possess the requisite qualifications to be there.
Pondei has revealed how the money was shared.
“Five million for youths and five million for women and five million for people living with disabilities in each senatorial district,” he said.
Kekemeke also questioned the indirect primary selection mode adopted by the party to produce its candidate.
According to him, the primary committee led by the Kogi state governor Yayaha Bello was not fair to many of the governorship aspirants.
The attackers stormed the village at exactly 10:35pm, heavily armed and started shooting sporadically at the villagers.
Meanwhile, some of the villagers are still missing.
