NDDC: JOI NUNIEH AND HER CESSPIT OF FOUL CRY!

 

A COMMUNIQUÉ ISSUED BY UKO IBAN AKWA IBOM, A WOMEN SOCIO CULTURAL ORGANIZATION WITH MEMBERS IN ALL THE 31 L.G.As OF AKWA IBOM STATE, ON TUESDAY , JULY 14, 2020 AFTER AN EMERGENCY MEETING IN UYO

 

UKO IBAN AKWA IBOM, an Umbrella Socio-Cultural women group in Akwa Ibom State, committed to promoting women’s rights and sustainable development for women, youths and children, has observed with palpable sense of dismay the naked dance of the former MD of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Miss Joi Nunieh, in an attempt, albeit unsuccessful, to cover the track of her insubordination and character deficit.



We declare our total support for the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, His Excellency, Sen. Godswill Akpabio, CON, who is currently supervising the ongoing forensic audit at the NDDC and state that a thousand preposterous allegations of Oath Taking or Sexual Harassment will not stop the demands of UKO IBAN AKWA IBOM STATE, and indeed the well meaning people of the Niger Delta, for a forensic audit at the NDDC as ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari, President and Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian Armed forces.

 

Since the setting up of the NDDC in 2001, the Commission has failed to fulfill its basic mandate of developing the Niger Delta and its peoples. Corruption, vested interests and lack of accountability have hampered growth and development in the region. Billions of naira budgeted every year for the Commission to carry out developmental projects have mysteriously found their way into private pockets while the people continue to live in penury and abject poverty. As we all know, the main reason behind the recent hue and cry by Ms Nunieh, is that she has reunited and join forces with unpatriotic elements – who have kept the region where is it today – to stop the forensic audit and continue the pilfering of the NDDC.



For someone who was removed from office by Mr. President since early in the year, it remains a mystery why she has just woken up from her slumber to raise the issue sexual harassment when the nation is griped with the news of almost 2,000 contractors fleeing with NDDC funds. How else will be brought to book without an audit? We implore the good people of the Niger Delta to look beyond the facade of diversionary gimmicks and focus on the real issue.

It is unfortunate that fraudulent contractors in the past robbed the region and its people of benefit of development. It is important to note that these people and their collaborators who were involved in raping the Commission in past are only trying to make sure their loot is not exposed by the audit. That is what this noise is all about. Equally important is the fact that the audit covers a 19-year period; meanwhile, Senator Akpabio has not spent up to a year in that Ministry.

 

Niger Delta deserves more than this cesspool of unsubstantiated accusations and shenanigans. This is the people’s voice and Uko Iban Akwa Ibom vehemently frowns at all the negative media campaign by the perennial racketeers at the NDDC.

 

Kemi Adeosun, a former Finance Minister and former Chairperson of the Board of African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) lost her position because of a fake NYSC exemption certificate. On 14th September, 2018, she towed the path of honour by resigning her appointment due to the scandal surrounding her NYSC certificate. But Joi Nunieh has thrown values to the wind and refused to hide her face in shame and choose the path of honour.

Ranting in TV interviews and online videos and publications with fabricated allegations only exposes the mischief and hidden agenda of Joi Nunieh and her sponsors.

The uncommon transformation brand of Senator Akpabio must be extended to the Niger Delta.

 

Senator Godswill Akpabio is a patriotic Nigerian and his track record of accomplishments as a Governor and Senator sets him apart as the right person to bring about the much development in the Niger Delta region. The progress with the East-West Road and the completion of the NDDC Corporate headquarters are eloquent testimonies of the capacity of the Minister.

 

We want to seize this opportunity to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for having good intentions for the Niger Delta region by commissioning a forensic audit of the NDDC. There is no doubt that the President has demonstrated great interest in the development of the Niger Delta. We stand to benefit immensely from the numerous projects earmarked for the region by Mr. president. The forensic audit when completed will root out corruption in the NDDC and reposition the interventionist agency to meet the yearnings and aspirations of the Niger Deltans for the speedy development of the region.

 

We, the good women of Akwa Ibom State, hereby reiterate our unalloyed support to the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, and call on Ms Nunieh and other disgruntled schemers to forthwith cease and desist from casting aspersions on the person of Sen. Godswill Akpabio and waging a campaign of calumny against the duly constituted IMC.

 

 

Signed:

Obongawan Geraldine Etuk
PRESIDENT

 

Elder Mrs. Glory Effiong

SECRETARY
