Last week Thursday, the House of Representative Committee on NDDC, issued a warrant of arrest on the acting Managing Director of the Commission, Prof. Kemebradikumo Pondei, after he walked out on the legislators probing the alleged N40 billion irregular expenditure in the commission.
Pondei who walked out with his team, accused the Chairman of the House of Representative committee on NDDC, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo (APC-Ondo) of corruption, insisting that the Niger Delta Development Commission was not comfortable having him chair the committee.
In his words, “We in the NDDC are not comfortable with the Chairman of this committee, presiding over the matter. He is an interested party and we do not believe that the NDDC can have justice because he cannot seat on his own case.”
“We have no issue of appearing, we appeared before the Senate ad hoc committee and as long as he remains, we will not make any presentation,” he said.
