Anti-graft agencies in the country have been urged to order a freeze of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) bank account to forestall further alleged pillage of the agencies funds by the Interim Management Committee.

According to Kolawole: “The commission has gone ahead to squander additional N9 billion Naira thereafter, in the last one month. This includes reckless spendthrift of N5.8 billion on fraudulent emergency desilting on the 29th of July, 2020, alone when the nation was on holidays.

The whistleblower further alleged that the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Interim Management Committee (IMC) was so reckless in its desperate bid to move money, used contract one heading listed various locations.

His words: “They were so in a hurry that they moved out the same amount purportedly for different locations and different scopes of job. i.e Emergency clearing and desilting of lpinie Ajenrela creek, lgbokoda (lot 3) -N634,761,500.00 (Six Hundred and Thirty-Four Million, Seven Hundred and Sixty One Thousand, Five Hundred Thousand Naira).

“Details of all the companies that served as a conduit for these payments are readily available. The movement of same disbursements was also not out of trace. NDDC

Kolawole also said while the nation was yet to recover from the shock of the N1.5bn spent by the IMC on palliative for itself, the IMC went further to pay another N350m on containing the spread of the COVID-19 my

He said, about 50 contract staffers were also engaged against the rules of service

“A look at the nominal roll of the commission confirms the alarm on secret employment ongoing in the commission. The management recently employed over 50 contract staff without following civil service rules and guidelines.

“Some of these new Intakes who lack the required skills or experience were placed as an assistant director without competence test or assessment.

“We call on President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Assembly, genuine security and anti-corruption agency to immediately freeze the accounts of the commission and apprehend everyone involved in the continuous scandalous pillaging of the agency’s treasury.

“lt gladdens the heart to note that some of the commission’s officials are already refunding part of their loot to government’s coffer.

“The Presidency also preemptively disowned the commission’s management over the latter’s impunity in extra-budgetary spending yet ongoing.

However, decisive steps must be taken urgently to end the audacious and unprecedented looting under a government that professes to be fighting corruption. After all, we all bear the consequences of the despicable actions of officials in government,” he stated. NDDC
