NDDC Probe: EFCC Has Not Invited Me For Questioning – Akpabio

The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, on Wednesday,noted that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has not invited him for questioning over the probe of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

The former Lawmaker stated this in a statement released through his Media Aide, Mr. Anietie Ekong, on Wednesday in Abuja.

Ekong in the statement revealed that the commission has not forwarded invitation letter to his principal concerning the financial dealings of the commission.

Ekong said: “My boss is yet to be invited. I don’t think the EFCC letter expressly stated that the minister is being investigated. It didn’t state that.”

Naija News had earlier reported that the anti-graft agency launched an investigation into the alleged involvement of the Minister and the Acting Managing Director of the NDDC, Prof Kemebradikumo Pondei, in financial mismanagement of the commission’s fund amounting to N81.5 billion.

A group, Foundation for True Freedom and Good Governance, led by Deji Adeyanju, had written a petition to EFCC to investigate how N81.8 billion was spent by the commission.
