SGACG Commends Presidency Over Stand On NDDC Audit Report

The Senator Godswill Akpabio for Common Good (SGACG) has commended the presidency’s stand on the reforms that led to the emergence

of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) Forensic Audit.

The volunteer group said the stand and action of government is highly commendable stating that it is aimed at ending years of corruption and abandoned projects.

A statement issued by the National Coordinator, Dr Jibril Tafida, said they declare their unconditional support for the truth as captured by
the statement of Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity,
Femi Adesina.

“We support the following facts reflected in the media
statement: That hundreds of billions of naira invested over the last 20 years ended in the pockets of a privileged few than the Niger Delta region such funds were meant for.

“That no sane Nigerian leader, much less President Buhari, who has never
hidden his disdain for corruption and corrupt public office holder would
tolerate the kind of massive thievery done at the NDDC for more than two
decades.

“That it is worst that national sabotage that signboards of fictitious contracts
would be erected, while the funds earmarked for such projects are
unaccounted for.

“We are also aware that the desperate moves by forces to try to frustrate the
Forensic Audit have failed because there is a supportive spirit by millions of
Nigerians on the need to expose national saboteurs, especially the so-called
NDDC contractors.

“Like the presidential spokesman rightly pointed out, the iron-will of the President is beyond evil machinations of a privileged few, masquerading as contractors,” the group said.

SGACG said it share the view that the NDDC matter symbolizes one of the
treacherous acts of some unpatriotic elements in the country that require the
kind of action the Federal Government has taken.

“We also join presidential spokesman Adesina to keep on praying, that by 2023 Buhari’s successor would consolidate on accountability, especially the type exemplified by President Muhammadu Buhari and Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Senator Godswill Obot Akpabio.

“We are hopeful that in the near future, Nigerians will make a wise decision
by electing the right person, someone like the driver of transformation in Niger Delta, Senator Akpabio, to continue from where PMB stops,” the group added.
