President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday ordered a forensic audit of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) operations from 2001.
The President gave the directive when he received members of the Southsouth Governors Forum (SGF), led by Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa.
NDDC has been issued lots of funds since its establishment which is to cater to the needs of the oil-producing states of Nigeria. They are Akwa-Ibom, Delta, Edo, Bayelsa, Rivers and Ondo states..
According to him, “what is presently on ground in the Niger Delta region does not justify the huge resources given the commission.”
He went on, “One cannot just say billions have been spent and when the sites are visited, there is nothing to be seen as proof of work done.”
