House of Reps Rejects Akpabio’s Letter for Being Diversionary

Last week, the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs Godswill Akpabio wrote to the Speaker of the House of Reps Femi Gbajabiamila, communicating his claim saying that House of Reps members had benefited from contracts of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

This was revealed in a statement made available to the press in Abuja by the Chairman, House Committee on Media and Publicity Mr. Ben Kalu.

The House had viewed Godswill Akpabio‘s letter as a personal attempt to divert attention from the main issues, cautioning him to stop spinning tales. The House also directed him to publish the names of the lawmakers he alleged were recipients of NDDC contracts.

Going on to add that the only mention of the chairman of the House Committee on NDDC, Mr. Tunji Olo in Akpabio’s letter was an alleged request for the complete payment of 19 contractors who had approached him with complaints over NDDC’s non-payment for their services.

In conclusion, the House had rejected the letter sent by Akpabio to the Senate President, urging Nigerians to ignore the minister’s attempts to deflect from the truth instead to ask the right questions about what happened to the region’s money, which has led to a gross disservice to Niger deltans.
