NDDC yet to respond to N183.7b indictment – Auditor General


Abuja – The Auditor General of the Federation has reacted to the claims by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) denying and casting aspersions on the Special Periodic Checks recently submitted to the National Assembly.



Reacting, however, the Office make bold its statement public, based on the statement occasioned by the NDDC’s condemnation of the Special Periodic Checks in various media calculated to demean the efficacy of the constitutional mandate carried out by the Office of the Auditor-General for the Federation.

A statement from the commission, and signed by Ogunmosunle, O.A.  affirmed that it took NDDC, 16 months to grant the Office permission to commence the periodic checks beginning from 9th December, 2011 to 6th May, 2013.

Similarly, it took another 16 months and several reminders to the NDDC with effect from the 24th of April, 2014 to 12th August, 2015 before the final report was submitted to the National Assembly. It may however, interest the reading publics to know that at the time of this Press Release, the NDDC is yet to respond to the Special Periodic Checks.
