|Forensic Audit: NDDC Will Emerge Stronger ― Akpabio by Magicians: 5:41pm On Sep 04, 2020|
The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has said the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, would emerge stronger and well-focused to deliver its mandate at the end of the ongoing forensic audit.
Senator Akpabio, who stated this while inaugurating the Field Forensic Auditors at his office in Abuja, added further that a new NDDC will emerge after the exercise.
He noted that the Presidential directive on the holistic examination of activities of the Commission from its inception in 2001 to August 2019, is not just in furtherance of the present administration’s policy agenda to check corruption but determined efforts to reposition the NDDC to change the narrative of the region.
Akpabio, who expressed concerns over the magnitude of rots at the Commission, recalled that previous intervention agencies including the Niger Delta Development Board, NDDB, created in 1958 and Oil Mineral Producing Areas Development Commission, OMPADEC, in 1992 all failed because, “their operations were marred by lack of focus, excessive corruption, political interference and high overhead cost, which are still prominent in the present NDDC.”
According to Sen. Akpabio, the Eight Forensic Auditors were cleared by the Bureau of Public Procurement, BPP, based on individual Firms Technical competencies and financial compliance
The Minister recalled that Government’s effort at repositioning the Niger Delta region led to the formation of NDDC in 2000 by an Act of Law mainly to address the issues of Ecological and Socio-economic development problems at the region after many failed attempts.
He further stated that it is pertinent to have a forensic audit considering the amount of resources poured into the Commission over the years compared with the level of development recorded over the same period of time.

NDCC since inception has always been a cesspit of corruption, and where easy money flows without proper accountability
It will be interesting to see how the outcome of the probe will strengthen the agency and enhance service delivery.
