Government opens account for defaulting contractors to refund NDDC projects’ sums

 
Mon Nov 4th, 2019 - Abuja (FCT)
 

The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, has hinted that the Federal Government was opening a fresh account for contractors who were mobilised for Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) projects but defaulted to return the sums or resume work immediately.

The Akwa Ibom ex-governor, who made the disclosure while receiving former agitators in the state at the weekend in Abuja, promised to reposition the interventionist agency by making life better for the people of the region, stating that he would not be deterred by the “campaign of calumny by faceless individuals who have benefitted over the years from the NDDC.”

He regretted that so much money had been given to the commission over the years yet “nothing commensurate is on the ground.”
