The house of representatives says it will probe the North-East Development Commission (NEDC) over the alleged mismanagement of N100 billion.

The resolution of the house was sequel to a motion sponsored by Ndudi Elumelu, minority leader of the house, on Thursday.

The commission was established in 2017 to reconstruct states affected by insurgency in the north-east.

While moving his motion, Elumelu said the N100 billion given to the commission by the federal government has “vanished” with nothing to show for it

The Delta lawmaker accused Mohammed Goni Alkali, commission’s managing director, of awarding non-existent contracts.

“The N100 billion so far disbursed to the commission by the federal government is said to have vanished under a year without any visible impact on the refugees nor any infrastructural development credited to the name of the commission in the whole of the north-east,” Alkali said.

“The corrupt practices include high handedness by the managing director, Mohammed Goni Alkali, over inflation of contracts, awards of non existent contracts, massive contract splitting and flagrant disregard for the procurement laws in the award of contracts.

“There are allegations of how the minister of humanitarian affairs and disaster management, Sadiya Farouk, was said to have entered into an unholy deal with the managing director of the commission to illegally withdraw money for the purchase military vehicles without any recourse to the board.

“The act, which completely disregards the country’s procurement laws, must be seriously frowned at.”

The house adopted the motion after it was put to a voice vote by Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house.

The motion was referred to the house committees on finance, procurement and NEDC. The report on the probe is expected to be turned in after eight weeks.

The development is coming days after the house concluded its investigation on the alleged mismanagement of N81.5 billion by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

The report on the NDDC probe is yet to be laid at the plenary of the lower legislative chamber.

People like you have constantly failed to see the real problem of Nigeria because you view every issue with tribal lens. We have a serious problem with our political class across all ethnic groups. If we create south west or south east development commission today, similar story will still come out. Our society is deeply corrupt nationwide.
I beg to differ! When a high profile member of the government, El-rufai said the North are saints, that they don't commit crimes unlike other tribes hence my comment!

It's now clear that corruption runs everywhere even in the sacred North!

And the amount is usually mind blowing shocked shocked shocked shocked

If you aren't quick to quote me, you would have noticed where I said corruption is everywhere!!!

Is Boko haram responsible for looting the NEDC? Are the Niger Delta militants responsible for looting the NDDC? We all lose to our political elites when we push this kind of divisive narrative. We must learn to speak to issues without bias.

Why do you think political elites from south west, south east, north west etc are clamoring for the creation of development commission for their regions? The answer is corruption. They have seen what their colleagues in the Niger Delta and North east region are enjoying and they want the same. The commissions provide a good opportunity for political elites of each regions to further steal money meant for development without much noise.

While the intention of creating the commissions may be noble, political elites will truncate the good intention and turn it to a slush fund ATM. We need to disband all the commissions or put in place a very mechanism to monitor their operations and ensure transparency and accountability. Creating commissions and leaving them to operate like NDDC and NEDC will not achieve any result.

No wonder other regions too are asking for development commissions.

What were the reasons given by Major General Buhari's men for sacking Shagari's government again?

If corruption and insecurity were among, then he isn't better than those he castigated in the past

We shall get there. 100 billions vanished within one year and Buhari is still deceiving zombies he is still fighting corruption. Even if this country is sold, the common masses will get nothing. Buhari is truly a fraudster, a scammer.
