#NDDCFraudFacts: Prof Pondei stated that they spent N1.3billion taking care of themselves and not N1.5bn as alleged!

The MD of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Prof Daniel Pondei, has stated that they spent N1.3 billion for COVID-19 palliatives and not N1.5 billion as widely publicised.

Earlier today, Prof Daniel Pondei fainted during a public hearing with members of the House of Representatives over alleged misuse of over N81 billion.

He was however revived after scores of NDDC officials including Dr Cairo Ojuogboh seated close to him promptly came his rescue.

Pondei was however ferried out of the venue of the investigative hearing chaired by the chairman of the House Committee on Niger Delta, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo at about 1.0 pm, The Guardian reports.

When asked where he got such powers to spend the huge amount of money, he said he would need to check on that as he couldn’t lie to them under oath.
