The House Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has summoned the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Godswill Akpabio, to appear and make presentations before it on Monday, July 20, 2020.
The House has also summoned the Managing Director of the commission Professor Kemebradikumo Pondei.
Their summon comes after the former MD of the NDDC, Joy Nunieh on Friday gave her testimony at the House Committee on Public Hearing via zoom.
Speaking at the hearing, Ms. Nunieh told the lawmakers that she did not touch funds meant for the Niger Delta People as some have alleged in different quarters.
The former Governor of Akwa Ibom State described Nunieh’s claims against him, as “cornucopia of false, malicious and libellous.”
