Senator Godswill Akpabio has denied ever collecting or executing projects worth N500m in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Akpabio, who is the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, made the denial on Friday when he appeared before the Senate ad hoc committee.
The committee is probing the alleged misappropriation of N40 billion in the intervention agency by the Interim Management Committee between October last year and May this year.
Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, who is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs, was quoted to have recently claimed during a news conference that Akpabio secured the projects but failed to execute them.
