President Bola Tinubu has been urged by female Niger Delta leaders of ethnic nationalities to release the findings of the forensic audit of the Niger Delta Development Commission.
The delegation’s leader, Ann-Kio Briggs, made the request during a Monday interactive discussion in Port Harcourt with Samuel Ogbuku, the managing director of NDDC.
The women leaders came from a various ethnic organizations, non-governmental organizations, community and faith-based groups, civil society organizations, and market women.
President Muhammadu Buhari established the forensic audit of the NDDC in 2021 to look into the operation of the interventionist organization from its founding to August 2019.
But even after the procedure was over, the administration has been mum about when Nigerians will be able to access the forensic report.
Briggs argued that it was unacceptable that the report of a forensic audit of NDDC’s financial operations had taken so long to be released.
She said, “The women of the Niger Delta are not happy that the forensic audit report of the NDDC has not been published.
