See the Elebele bridge contract awarded to NDDC for N2.3 Billion naira and commissioned in 2020

There has been a public outcry for the government to carry out an investigation into the awards of contract and the activities of those responsible in handling the affair of the agency.

Revelations have started to emerge following the Federal Government approval of forensic auditing of the financial records and contracts executed by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) over the years.

Since the creation of the Niger Delta commission in 2000, there have been no auditing of the financial records of the government agency.

On Monday, the House began its investigation and probe into the alleged financial misappropriation in the NDDC which saw the acting MD of the government agency, Dr. Pondei fainting during the session.

Among the shocking discovery is that in 2018, the commission awarded a contract to construct the Elebele pedestrian bridge at Ogbia local government in Bayelsa state.

The Elebele bridge contract was awarded for N2.3 Billion naira and was completed and commissioned  in 2020
