NDDC Audit Must Hold

Oil Communities Demand Return of NDDC to Presidency

By Josephine Emmanuel

With the recent unfolding drama against the Interim Management Committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), its glaring and can be seen as a pure case of corruption coming back to fight those that have been put in place to fight it.

Anyone willing to combat corruption and wrestle it to the ground must be ready for a rough fight. He must be ready to be called names, utterly blackmailed and have insults hurled at him for his guts and even boldness to venture to ask relevant questions that will uncover past corrupt practices in the commission. Unfortunately this is currently the strainthe Minister of the Niger Delta Affairs, Chief Godswill Akpabio and those currently in charge of the NDDC will bear for carrying out a national assignment to oversee the forensic probe of the activities of the commission as ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari some months ago.

The recent vicious media attacks against the person of Akpabio and the NDDC interim management committee(IMC), chairman prof. Kemebradikumo pondei, and Dr. Cairo Ojougboh clearly illustrates how corruption fights back. The advocates of these media condemnation are already creating confusion by painting those in charge of the commission in black and making them unclean to sit in judgment against them.
Seeing the hidden truth about to be unraveled, they will stop at nothing to drag the IMC in the mud.
They have spread out write-ups in various newspapers and advertorials to make the people believe their jumbled tales of corruption in the management of the NDDC.
Their motive is in a subtle manner to frustrate the ongoing forensic scrutiny of the agency which they see as their gold mine. The smudge is specially constructed to buy time and undue attention. It is devised to confuse and distract those probing their shameful activities in the agency.

This propaganda clearly cannot be different from those whose dirty transactions with the NDDC are being investigated and just because they want to deceive the unwary public, they are willing to dish out lies garnished to look as the truth to cover their evil deeds.

The Niger Delta Patriotic Front would employ the Interim management committee of the NDDC to remain concentrated and neglect the tricks of those looking to find fault where there isn’t because the core Niger Delta souls are with them.
We want to state unequivocally that the good people of Niger delta are happy with what the minister and the leadership of IMC are doing in ensuring that the president fulfills his campaign promise to Niger Delta.
