member of the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Caroline Nagbo, has revealed how much was given to him with regards to money given acting members of the commission.
Caroline Nagbo while speaking on the alleged reports by a Port Harcourt-based newspaper that acting members of the commission each got N142 million denied the allegation.
Nagbo described the report as mischievous and misleading. She spoke through her Special Adviser on Technical and Youth Matters, Sogbeye Eli.
Eli said there was no proceeding or report of the Senate ad hoc committee which probed allegations of financial impropriety against the IMC linking her to the accusation.
He said: “Caroline Nagbo has nothing to do with these figures quoted and recklessly assigned to members of the IMC. It bears no correlation with Nagbo’s records with the Senate.
“The report has misled the public to the belief that the NDDC was looted by our principal, and has damaged her reputation. Nagbo has received nothing not captured in the NDDC conditions of service since she resumed duty.
“We urge the public to discountenance the falsehood and political undertones which inspired the vexatious report.”
A firm, Collincrystal Energy, has denied allegations by the NDDC that it was coerced by the National Assembly to make underserved payments to some companies and contractors.
The firm, which was included in the list of companies that received such payments, described the allegations as unfounded, baseless and spurious.
