The acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Kemebradikumo Pondei, collapsed due to the heavyweight of corruption, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said.

In a statement on Monday by Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP spokesman, the party berated the All progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari for the massive corruption going on the current administration.

The party said it was obvious that Pondei collapsed “under the weight and shame of overwhelming collective guilt brought on him by the exposure of massive corruption being perpetrated by NDDC officials and APC leaders”.

The statement read: “It is revealing that Pondei could go no further in the face of scathing revelations of direct pillaging of resources meant for the development and welfare of the Niger Delta people, in an unbridled corruption racket in which the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, also stands accused.

“It is rather curious that Prof. Pondei slumped after lawmakers demanded that he offers explanations on the contentious payment of billions of naira, alleged unbudgeted sums, to certain companies by the NDDC.

“This is particularly as Nigerians recall that the embattled NDDC boss had, last week, stalled proceedings by challenging the legislators and walking out on the House of Representatives investigative panel.

“The situation in the NDDC is just a tip of the iceberg on the humongous corruption, looting spree and concealment going on in ministries, department and agencies of government being perpetrated by APC leaders and their cronies.”

PDP urged the President to sack the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, and to also disband the NDDC interim management committee “if he indeed desires the coordinated probe he ordered to yield any credible results”.

The party urged Buhari to “note that the people of the Niger Delta region, who are being deprived of their welfare, are following the development with keen interest”.

“Moreover, the entire nation and indeed the global community are watching the handling of the NDDC as well as the EFCC fraud saga by the Muhammadu Buhari administration,” the party said.

“They are watching the unfolding drama, the rigmarole and veneers of concealment by corrupt officials and APC leaders.”
