Akpabio clears air on missing N40b
The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has cleared the air on the allegations of missing N40billion.
Nunieh on Monday raised a fresh allegation against Godswill Akapbio, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs.
Among other claims against the Minister, Nunieh alleged that Akpabio attempted to inflate the NDDC budget during her reign as Managing Director.
Nunieh disclosed that Akpabio ordered her to include some projects from the refugee commission in the budget of the NDDC.
The former NDDC boss alleged that N40 billion of NDDC funds was squandered under Akpabio’s watch.
But addressing a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, the Minister said, “Money could have been missing in those days when they had over 300 bank accounts, but now, because of the Treasury Single Account, the NDDC now has only one account domiciled with the Central Bank of Nigeria.
