The Ag. Executive Director Finance and Administration of NDDC, Mr Ibanga Bassey Etang, died Thursday (May 28, 2020) morning according to OBSERVERS TIMES.
This has worsened the crisis that had engulfed the agency since the inception of Godwill Akpabio as Minister of Niger Delta Affairs.
OBSERVERS TIMES earlier reported that the House of Representatives was to launch a probe into the alleged mismanagement of funds and other unwholesome practices in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
The House had summoned the Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Godswill Akpabio, and members of the new Interim Management Committee. Akabio is former governor of Akwa Ibom.
The House also mandated its Committee on NDDC to investigate all issues relating to misapplication and misappropriation of funds, especially N40bn spent under two months by the Commission and report back to the House.
