President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to recovered every single kobo of mismanaged funds meant to develop the Niger Delta through the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and those involved would be brought to book.
The president made this known today, Thursday 30th December, 2021 in Akwa Ibom while commissioning a 1,050 bed hostel at the University of Uyo.
“Therefore, going forward, we shall ensure every recoverable kobo, is recovered for use in service of the people of this region and those found culpable shall face the Law,”
President Buhari had earlier authorized a forensic audit of the NDDC following allegations of widespread corruption at the agency.
The Niger Delta minister, Godswill Akpabio, had said the NDDC was treated like an ATM where officials just went to steal public funds.
The hostel the president commissioned was built by the NDDC, according to the presidential aide on media, Femi Adesina
