Delta Rep Member says Pondei’s slumping was fake

Member representing Ethiope federal constituency, Hon Ben Igbakpa, has said the slumping of the acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Prof Pondei Kemebradikumor as “fake” adding that the slumping of the NDDC boss became unreal because he had nothing to say during the probe.

The lawmaker also said he is confident that years to come children of Prof Pondei will question him (Pondei) on why he slumped and was rushed to the hospital while being grilled on allegations surrounding a commission he headed.

Igbakpa, made his position known, weekend, while appearing as a guest on Channels TV Hard Copy where he also accused the minister for Niger Delta affairs, Chief Godswill Akpabio of allegedly being overbearing in his supervisory role of the NDDC following his authorization of budgetary funding expenses.

The Delta born politician, who is also a member of the House Committee on NDDC, absolved the former acting NDDC MD, Joy Numieh of any wrongdoing, saying: “I do not find any wrongdoing with the actions of Joy Numieh, but I do same for Pondei.
