The Minister of Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio, Friday faulted the Senate probe into the alleged mismanagement of N40 billion by the Interim Management Committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Anietie Ekong, the former Senate Minority Leader said since the IMC came on board it had not awarded a single contract.

Akpabio urged the upper legislative chamber not to mislead the public with its spurious claims, adding that the NDDC under his supervision would not be distracted neither would the ongoing forensic audit of the commission be derailed through blackmail and intimidation.

The Senate had earlier in the week set up a seven-man ad hoc committee to probe the alleged financial recklessness in the IMC.
