Uduaghan denies N429m NDDC contract






Former Delta Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan has described “as laughable and untrue” allegations by Minister of Niger Delta Affairs Senator Godswill Akpabio he benefitted from a N429m road contract from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Akpabio had in a letter to Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila linked Uduaghan and his predecessor, James Ibori , among others with some contracts awarded by NDDC.

Uduaghan was linked to the emergency repairs of Close B, Alhaji Estate & Environs, Rumuodomaya, Port Harcourt at a cost of N429m.

But Udugahan, in a statement by his Media Assistant, Monoyo Edon, debunked the allegation.

He stressed he had never “approached the NDDC for any contract whatsoever.”

Uduaghan admitted reaching out to Akpabio to immediately correct the report as he had never been awarded contracts by the interventionist agency.

Uduaghan said: “We want to state very clearly that the said accusation is false. Dr. Uduaghan has never approached the NDDC for any contract whatsoever.

“It is even more ridiculous that the said contract is a road inside Port Harcourt town.

“Dr. Uduaghan has drawn the attention of the Hon. Minister of the Niger Delta, Sen Godswill Akpabio to the publication and hopes he makes a correction.”

He advised Nigerians to disregard the mischievous publication.  (The Nation)
