President Buhari is still studying NDDC forensic audit report, says Akpabio


Godswill Akpabio, minister of Niger Delta affairs, says President Muhammadu Buhari is still studying the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) forensic audit report.

Akpabio disclosed this in a statement signed by Babayo Ardo, permanent secretary in the ministry, yesterday in Abuja.

In September, the minister submitted the final report to the president — covering 13,777 contracts from 2001 to 2019 at a value of N3,274,206,032,213.24.

According to the statement, Akpabio said Buhari is determined to reposition the NDDC after 19 years of rot.

He added that the board of the commission will be constituted at the appropriate time, upon the recommendation of the president.

“Part of the strategy to reposition the NDDC was the recent setting up of a forensic audit to understand what went wrong despite the resources committed to the commission over the years,” he said.

“The report of that audit has just been submitted to Mr. President, who is studying it to come up with a formula for a commission fit for purpose.”
