NDDC house of fraud: Our daughter from Rivers must not be touched — Wike
The Rivers state government has weighed into the crisis rocking the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
There have been allegations and counter allegations over the national assembly’s probe of the alleged mismanagement of N40 billion by the interim management.
Joy Nunieh, former acting managing director of the commission, had accused Godswill Akpabio, minister of Niger Delta affairs, of illegalities, including directing her to pad the agency’s budget. She adds that the minister influenced her removal from office because she refused to do his bidding.
In a statement on Thursday, Paul Nsirim, commissioner for information in Rivers, said the state is solidly behind Nunieh.
“The Rivers State Government has viewed with concern, the recent developments at the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) in which the name of our daughter, Dr. Joi Nunieh, the immediate past Acting Managing Director of the Commission, has been dragged into,” the statement read.
“We hereby call on those involved in the ongoing investigations in the NDDC to ensure that Dr. Joi Nunieh does not suffer any harm in the course of their undertakings.
