NDDC defends Akpabio’s list of contractors

THE Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, on Tuesday, said it stood by the list of prominent Niger Delta leaders released by the Minister of Niger Delta, Senator Godswill Akpabio, as contractors in the Commission, saying what the Minister released was only a tip of the iceberg.

Director, Corporate Affairs, NDDC, Mr. Charles Odili, said the Commission has details of the contracts and proxies used to collect them, including the 250 contracts collected in one day in the name of the National Assembly.

He observed that there was another set of lists for emergency project contracts awarded in 2017 and 2019, but these were not submitted to the National Assembly.

Odili affirmed: “The Interim Management Committee, IMC, of the Commission stands by the list, which came from files already in the possession of the forensic auditors. It is not an Akpabio’s list, but the NDDC’s list. The list is part of the volume of 8,000 documents already handed over to the forensic auditors.”
