Nigeria Govt. Indicts NDDC For Abandoning N6trn Projects

The Niger Delta Development Commission has littered the region with abandoned projects and a colossal loss, despite receiving more than six trillion naira in eight years the government has said.

Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, declared this on Thursday while receiving the forensic audit report of the NDDC from the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, in Abuja this week.

Malami received the report on President Muhammadu Buhari, who ordered the forensic audit.

“It is on record that between 2001 and 2019, the Federal Government has approved N3, 375, 735,776,794.93 as budgetary allocation and N2,420,948,894,191.00 as Income from Statutory and Non Statutory Sources, which brings the total figure to the sum of approximately N6 trillion given to the Niger Delta Development Commission,” Malami said.
