It is no longer news that the Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Professor Daniel Kemebradikumo Pondei fainted during a live probe. The NDDC boss fainted where he was seated after the members of the House of Representatives Committee on NDDC grilled him for about 45 minutes.
The NDDC Acting Managing Director was being probed for alleged mismanagement of funds amounting to over 80 billion naira. Nigerians have been in outrage ever since the incident took place and are demanding explanation of the expenditure of the funds. It was reported today that Nigerians on NDDC scholarship abroad are holding protests.
Meanwhile, the Niger Delta region remains so much under-developed. The condition of the roads is appalling, the power supply is terrible and other basic infrastructures are missing. So Nigerians truly want to know what the money given to this organization since its establishment in 2000 has been used to accomplish.
Below are pictures of the detestable state of roads in the Niger Delta and elsewhere in Nigeria.
