Few week ago the country witness mind-boggling discoveries of misappropriation of N1.5 billion by the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), the Federal Government intervention agency is on the headlines once more over supposed theft of N6.2 billion permitted for palliative by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Leader of the palliative distribution committee of the commission, High Chief Sobomabo Jackrich, has actually sought individually the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan and also the Speaker of house of Representatives, Honourable Femi Gbajabiamila, inquiring the duo to investigate the claimed supposed theft.
Jackrich, in a 12-paragraph petition dated August 3, 2020, qualified: “Demand for investigation over alleged misappropriation and diversion of N6.2 billion NDDC palliative money,” asserted that he was actually sidelined in the purchase as well as distribution of palliative products to homeowners of the 9 states under the comission.
A comparable claimed misappropriation of N1.5 billion was actually looked into just recently by both chambers of the National Assembly. In the new request, Jackrich inquired the legislators to examine his claim as he disregarded the distribution of the palliative things by the IMC led through Professor Daniel Pondei as a deception.
He claimed: “The N6.25 billion that was actually magnanimously permitted by President Buhari to aid the poor as well as indigents of the Niger Delta throughout this tough time of the pandemic has actually strangely enough been actually presumably misused and also thieved by the IMC of the NDDC and also their accomplices.
” As the leader of the pallative distribution board, my investigation is actually certainly not merely that the cash may certainly not be actually accounted for, however there is actually nothing at all on ground to reveal that N6.2 billion of our hard-earned taxpayer citizens’ funds was actually put in for its initial function which the president authorized.”
He required the disintegration of the acting administration of the commission, including that the forensic analysis was actually a camouflage being actually showcased by the Professor Pondei team to apparently proceed monetary sleaze of the intervention agency.
