No light in NDDC because Akpabio’s girlfriend supplies diesel –Former NDDC MD Joy Nunieh






Former acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Joy Nunieh, says the headquarters of the agency is unconnected to public power supply.

She stated that this was because the “girlfriend” of the Niger Delta Minister, Godswill Akpabio, allegedly supplies the diesel for generators.

Nunieh spoke on an Arise TV programme anchored by Reuben Abati.

She said: “Akpabio’s girlfriend supplies diesel at the NDDC. I looked at the diesel situation and said why don’t we give the young Niger Delta boys to supply? Why can’t we divide it into nine states for them to supply? NDDC in the past paid for us to get light directly.

Nunieh lamented that though millions of Naira was paid to get light to NDDC, it was not connected to the main building.

Nunieh recalled that after her appointment, she insisted that monies spent on diesel be cut down.

“How do I tell Mr. President that I came to do forensic audit and I come in here to commit the same offence? I will not do it. We looked at the system. How much it will cost to connect the light?

“To cut the long story short, I approved. We got the engineers to repair that thing. Do you know that they refused to pay the money for us to connect that light into the office so that we can keep buying that diesel?”

Nunieh and Akpabio are engaged in allegations and counter allegations over financial infractions in the NDDC.
