The Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Daniel Pondei, has fainted while being questioned by the House of Representatives Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission.
Pondei fainted while the house committee grilled him for about 45 minutes on issues related to expenditures of the commission and payment of students scholarship.
The NDDC has come under heavy scrutiny following reports of corruption and mismanagement of funds levied against the leadership of the commission during the pandemic period.
The commission has announced it paid 1400 staff the sum of 1.4 Billion covid -19 palliatives in the last 4 months.
Embattled Senator Akapbio did not appear before the committee and Prof. Pondei appeared to be left on his own.
He was immediately taken out of the house sitting for medical attention, while the interrogation was interrupted and the committee members were at a loss whether to continue or postpone the meeting.
The NDDC Boss did not show signs of any ailment before the grilling began and neither did he informed the committee of any medical challenge before appearing before it.
