…Joseph Evah says it is not appropriate for politicians to probe NDDC frauds
The Coordinator of the Ijaw Monitoring Congress and a former Publicity Secretary of the Ijaw National Congress, Mr. Joseph Evah, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to exempt politicians from managing the affairs of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Evah also suggested that anti-graft agencies and investigative institutions, and not politicians should be used to probe frauds plaguing the NDDC and other related matters in the Niger Delta.
He made these recommendations when he appeared as a guest on the Morning Show of the Arise Television, where he reacted to the recent investigation of corruption that involving the acting Managing Director of NDDC, Professor Daniel Pondei.
He recommended that the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) should be brought in to probe the NDDC.
“We are begging the president to do what is right for us; remove politicians from NDDC, checkmate this drama that is happening for the sake of our children because there is a lot that NDDC can do for our generation and the future generation and the presidency know what is right.
“Our youths are not engaged. The major problem of the Niger Delta is our governors. If we have proactive governors our problem is half solved,” Evah said.
