JUST IN: Buhari urged to Freeze NDDC’s Accounts

President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged to freeze all the accounts of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) over alleged financial recklessness.

The Diocese of Evo, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) made this known in a communique issued on Saturday at the end of the second session of the Fourth Synod of the Diocese which held at St. Matthias Anglican Church, Atali in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The communique was signed by the Bishop of the Diocese, Rt. Rev. Innocent Ordu; the Chancellor, Nlerum Amadi, and the Clerical Synod Secretary, Rev. Can. Gospel Onuchukwu.

The church also called on Buhari to immediately intervene to bring sanity to the commission and carry out a total overhaul of the commission and the Niger Delta Ministry.

In its communique, the church expressed disappointment that the NDDC, which was supposed to be an interventionist agency, had turned out to work against the people.

The church said the steps had become necessary because of the alleged monumental corruption in the commission and key officers of the National Assembly who were supposed to carry out oversight functions on the interventionist agency.
