We didn’t dissolve NDDC interim committee -Presidency

The Presidency on Friday denied reports that it has dissolved the Interim Management Committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission.

There have been recent calls by the National Assembly for the dissolution of the committee and the return of the NDDC to the Presidency for direct supervision.

For instance, the Senate ad hoc committee set up to unravel the alleged financial recklessness of the IMC to the tune of tens of billions of naira on Thursday lamented the extra-budgetary spending of the IMC, urging President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately dissolve the committee.

The House of Representatives is also currently probing alleged corruption in the NDDC.

But reacting to reports in some sections of the media that the IMC has been dissolved due to the calls by the legislature, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said there was nothing as such.

In a statement on Friday titled, ‘Fake News On NDDC Attributed To Me’, Adesina wrote, “A statement purportedly signed by me has been making the rounds that the Federal Government has dissolved the Interim Management Committee of the NDDC.
