Professor Kemebradikumo Pondei, just a couple of minutes ago this afternoon, July 20, 2020, fainted during the sitting while answering questions from members of the committee in the presence of the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Godswill Akpabio, who was also ordered to appear and make presentations before the committee.
The NDDC boss was hurriedly rushed out for medical attention and the sitting adjoined for 20 minutes.
Last week, this same acting MD of NDDC, Prof. Pondei walked out on the house committee investigating the NDDC.
He said the chairman, Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo is an interested party in the scandal, with past allegations against him.
This morning Hon. Olubunmi recused himself.
However, Nigerians are saying that the acting MD of NDDC is forming sick to escape the N81 billion corruption probe in the House of Representatives.
