Former senator and the current Minister for Niger Delta Affairs Senator Godswill Akpabio, has totally denied accusing members of the National assembly of collecting sixty percent of NDDC contracts.
The former lawmaker in a public hearing claimed the National Assembly is a beneficiary of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) as they claim 60 percent of the awarded contracts. After being dragged to court earlier today by the House of Reps, Sen. Akpabio has now denied accusing them.
This was contained in a letter read on the floor of the House of Representatives during plenary by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila.
The former lawmaker said the only reference he made to 60 percent during his presentation before the NDDC committee a few days ago was in response to a question by a member of the committee.
The former Governor of Akwa Ibom State explained in the letter that the member had sought to know whether a Medical Director can serve as an Executive Director, Project.
