In this article, you are going to see the breakdown of how NDDC spent 81.5 BILLION NAIRA on from January-May 2020.
Recall that Joy Nunieh who hails from Rivers State has been under investigation by the National Assembly over her role as the former chairman of the Niger-Delta Commission. This is a sequel to the order of Mr. President, Muhammadu Buhari to do forensic of the commission since 20 years of its existence!
Ever since the investigation began, there have been a series of drama, accusations and counter-accusations among the NDDC officials, NAS, Alpabio and Wike.
The interesting part has been the rift between the minister of Niger-Delta commission, Godwin Alpabio and Joy Nunieh, the former NDDC MD.
The woman accused the minister of sexual harassment, allegations of bribery or complicity. All the allegations were equally refuted by the the minister! A day ago, the woman was under house arrest by the police.
The police was spotted besieging her residence, blocking her from appearing before the National Assembly. The Rivers state governor, Wike later came to rescue and drove her out to the government house!
In the meantime, how the NDDC spent huge amount of N81.5 Billions within 5 months is still a shocking one! As revealed by the TVC Television yesterday, the breakdown shows that even during the Covid-19 lockdown, with the oversea travel ban, the commission spent N85.6 Millions! See details below:

I am from South-West part of the country. I may not know much how NDDC programs impacted the average Niger-Delta people during this Covid-19 pandemic but I don't think N31. 4 billions was felt by the people!
What did commission buy for people to ease the pains of the lockdown with N31. 4 billions?
