Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, says most of the contracts in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) are given to national assembly members.
He spoke when he appeared before the house of representatives committee probing the commission.
“We all know that most of the contracts at NDDC are given to members of the national assembly,” he said.
He was then interrupted by the members of the committee who asked him to give clarifications on other issues.
The minister responded: “I just told you that we have records to show that most of the contracts in NDDC are given out to members of the national assembly but you don’t know about it, the two chairmen can explain to you. I was a member of the NDDC committee so I know about it.”
