Kemebradikumo Pondei, the acting managing director of the the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), today walked out on a house of representatives panel investigating the commission.
At the meeting of the house committee on NDDC on Thursday, Kemebradikumo Pondei stormed out of the session after insisting that Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, its chairman, will not preside. He said Tunji-Ojo had been fingered in the alleged fraud at the NDDC and so, cannot sit over the same matter in which he is an accused.
Since the commencement of the probe, which is also being done at the senate, a series of drama has been playing out between the lawmakers and the NDDC, with both parties accusing each other of irregularities. Joy Nunieh, former managing director at the NDDC, who was also scheduled to appear before the lawmakers, failed to show up after her house was besieged by armed policemen.
