NDDC Probe: Senate Committee Wants NDDC’s IMC Dissolved

By Amechi Idumuebor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The dissolution of the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has been recommended by the Senate Committee investigating the alleged financial recklessness in the commission, following a detailed report which was submitted to the Senate plenary on Thursday by the Chairman, Senator Olubunmi Adetukunmbi, in which it was revealed that the NDDC spent N1.334 trillion within five years.

According to Adetukunmbi, the IMC was guilty of spending outside budgetary provisions as the accounting system in the NDDC was a contradiction of the act setting up the commission, lampooning the IMC for spending a mouthwatering sum of N81.5 billion within three months on things that were not in consonance with the main objective of the NDDC, which is the infrastructural development of the region.

The Senators also recommended the return of the NDDC to the presidency for close supervision with the establishment of a supervisory board consisting of the governors of the nine Niger Delta States.
