Nigerians descend on Akpabio on social media after ex-NDDC MD’s damning corruption allegations
Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator God’swill Akpabio is trending number one on Twitter. The reason for his unusual trend according to sources was as a result of grievous allegations made by the former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Joy Nunieh.
Nunieh said out of the N81billion spent by the Commission between October last year to May this year only N8billion was expended by Interim Management Committee (IMC) under her leadership for the months period spent ( October 29, 2019 to February 18, 2020).
She alleged while answering questions from Journalists during a press conference on Saturday that Akpabio engineered her removal from office for failing to dance to his tunes as regards writing to implicate Chairman , Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs , Peter Nwaoboshi on fraudulent contracts awards and executions.
In her words: “The minister did all manner of dirty things to forcefully remove me out of office like sponsoring the vandalisation of Agip trunk a pipeline in Bayelsa as a way of making the unsuspecting public to believe that the youths in the area were angry with NDDC under her leadership.
He even made frantic attempts to force me to swear to fetish oath which i vehemently refused before he succeeded in getting me out of the place for sole purpose of having his way to run the place the way he likes under the present team of IMC”.
