The Nigerian Senate’s Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions has summoned the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, and the Sole Administrator of Niger Delta Development Commission, Effiong Akwa, over non-payment of N2.2 Billion Naira to contractors.

The committee said it was acting on petitions filed by Akom Survey Services Limited over the alleged refusal by the minister and the NDDC administrator to pay for the survey carried out in nine states under the commission, based on a N2.2 Billion Naira contractual agreement.

Chairman of the committee, Senator Ayo Akin-yelure, while briefing journalists said the committee had written several letters of invitation to the minister and the NDDC boss, who have been asked to appear before the panel on April 12, 2022.
