NDDC Petitions Inspector General of Police to probe Contractors

By Maria Ifafesobi

AKURE – The leadership of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has written to the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, seeking the arrest and prosecution of contractors, who failed to execute contracts given to them by the agency after collecting mobilization funds.

The Managing Director of the agency, Mr. Kemebradikumo Pondei, signed the petition, dated July 29, 2020.
According to PUNCH, Mr. Pondei, in the letter, reminded the IG about some contract documents that are related to the alleged contract scam that is being investigated by the police department of operations.
The letter which was titled, ‘Re: Forwarding of documents in respect of ongoing investigation’, stated that the NDDC had attached fresh documents that could help the police in the ongoing investigation.
Technocrat media gathered that some contracts were awarded by the Agency to certain companies for the production of desks and chairs for primary and secondary schools as part of the Commission’s education mandate in the Niger Delta Region, but instead, the contractors failed to fulfill their own part of the deal.
“Instead of supplying the chairs and desks to the Commission’s warehouse in Port Harcourt or to any of the NDDC offices in the nine Niger Delta states, the contractors supplied them to a warehouse described as Akuede Akwis, Benin Expressway, Okpanam before Wichetech.
The warehouse is located in Delta State and has no relationship with the commission.” He said.
Meanwhile, Technocrat Media under its initiative #FollowTheProjects, is currently investigating abandoned public projects that were awarded by NDDC in Ondo State.
