Nwaoboshi: Akpabio’s Allegation Untrue, I Didn’t Get 53 Contracts From NDDC by Basoenewokoma(m): 7:00pm On Jul 27
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, has described as false, the allegation that he was awarded 53 contracts by the Niger Delta Development Commission in 2018.

The Senator’s denial was contained in a statement he signed on Monday, titled, “Re: Allegations of NDDC Contract Award to Senator Peter Nwaoboshi (Chairman: Senate Committee On Niger Delta) by the Hon. Min of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio.”

Nwaoboshi challenged Akpabio to send details of the projects listed against his name to the anti-graft agencies in the country if he was sure of his facts.


He alleged that Akpabio was deliberately blackmailing him to divert public attention from the alleged serious mismanagement of the NDDC by the Interim Management Committee under his supervision.

Akpabio had in a document attached to the letter he sent to the Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, obtained by The PUNCH on Sunday, alleged that Nwaoboshi got 53 contracts from the NDDC in 2018.

He was reacting to the ultimatum given by Gbajabiamila, to name the beneficiaries of the claim during his appearance before the House Committee on the NDDC investigative hearing that 60 per cent of the NDDC jobs were awarded to National Assembly members.


Nwaoboshi said, “In the said (PUNCH) publication, Mr Akpabio alleged that I was awarded contracts for 53 NDDC projects.

“I wish to state unequivocally that this allegation has no bearing with the truth and challenge Mr Akpabio to send the so-called list to anti-graft and other security agencies if he can substantiate the apparently baseless allegation.

“Indeed I would have made further comments but for the fact that the matter is currently before two competent courts of law.


“However, suffice it to say that this unsubstantiated allegation is in line with Mr Akpabio’s well-known agenda to continuously blackmail me so as to keep diverting public attention from the serious mismanagement of the NDDC by the Interim Management Committee under his supervision and under the guise of a phantom forensic audit that has no operating timeline.

“My advise to Mr Akpabio and the IMC is to focus their energy on explaining to Nigerians how they spent a whopping N81.5bn within a period of five months”


Nwaoboshi alleged that IMC spent N58m on refreshment/logistics for project verification paid to IMC and staff of the agency.


He also said NDDC paid N370m as expenses to IMC for 2019 and 2020 budgets defence, respectively, at the National Assembly.

He alleged that staff medical checkup gulped N4.9bn under the IMC

He further alleged that the IMC was paying N51.8 million every month as an allowance to the MD IMC and N18 million every month to each member of the IMC.


He said, “The above revelations are just a tip of the mind-boggling and reckless payments running into billions of naira paid by the IMC members to themselves.

“They were expended with the approval of Mr Akpabio on mundane and useless projects that have no developmental impact on the life and livelihood of the Niger Delta people as envisioned by the founding fathers of the NDDC.

“Mr Akpabio and his IMC should apologise to the Niger Delta people in particular and Nigerians in general for this grand wastage arising from their crass incompetence.


“As a realist, I am confident that a day will come when Mr. Akpabio and his IMC will have a date with the law.

“I will in the meantime express my unwavering commitment to improving the lots of our people in the Niger Delta, supporting quality legislation in the National Assembly, and working for a society every Nigerian can be proud of.

“This is my mission in politics and I would not be distracted by the antics of political mudslingers and their agents.”

Shameless people... how on earth will you give politicians contracts worth billions after the billions they collect as salary and allowance...like seriously what is now left for the common man. And is not as if they are technocrats in this area they collect the contract but is for them to cut the standard and sub let the contract to the firms that will eventually do the job, for those that will even execute the project oo... We are wicked in this part of the world and the painful part is that nobody is talking, everyone is docile and it now looks normal

You dared Akpabio and here's the result!!!

Akpabio is not mentally ill now, he knows what he's saying

You guys wanted to save yourself and shame him!

If Akpabio must go, so must you guys cause you are all equally corrupt!!!

Buhari will do well to scrap that agency and ep pay directly to whom it may concern account!

That's the only way things can be done in this country

Diz legislooters should be stone to dead for sucking the NDDC dry. Bt unfortunate the youths in dat region will hail him, defend n even protest with placard against his arrest. After they will lineup n collect 1k 2k 4gotten dat, the road to their houz is highly deplorable n dilapidated, no gud portable water, industry, standard specialist hospital, qualitative education, human capital development n empowerment, digital skill acquisition center, re-orientation for youth in the region to shun thuggery. Cultism, n pipelines vandalism etc. Be wise say no 2 corruption.

Nigerians just look at how Akpabio has deliberately diverted our attention away from his stealing. Akpabio is indeed a smart criminal.

Same tactics and tricks he used and divert attention by claiming that Mrs Joi is married to 4 husbands and they have all left her, meanwhile she said she's only married to one husband.

grin I will support the recommendation for NDDC to be scrapped if and when the Senate is scrapped too and scrapped FIRST, because as you can see, they are bigger thieves inside there than at the NDDC. So big, that they have their hands in the NDDC cookie jar too, not just their own jar alone grin
