This sad incident, was confirmed by the Tolu Ogunlesi, the Special Assistant to President Buhari on Digital and News Media in a Tweet on Monday afternoon.
"Damn. NDDC MD just collapsed on national TV. In a NASS Hearing. I hope he’s OK. It’s live on @channelstv."
However, the cause of the collapse is yet to be ascertained as at the time of writing this report.
It would be recalled that the acting MD of the NDDC, Prof. Kemebradikumo Pondei and his team last week Thursday, had walked out on legislators investigating the alleged N40 billion irregular expenditure in the commission.

Pondei stormed out of the hearing on Thursday in Abuja, after accusing the Chairman of the committee Rep. Olubumi Tunji-Ojo, of corruption.
However, Pondei returned to the National Assembly on Monday for the investigation to be continued.
Many Nigerians have argued that the collapse is just a mere drama, as it's a plot to distrupt the investigation being carried out.
Do you think this could truly be a mere drama indeed ?
