President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked Daniel Pondei as the acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.
In his place, he has approved the appointment of an interim administrator to oversee the affairs of the Commission in the person of the Acting Executive Director, Finance and Administration of the Commission, Effiong Okon Akwa, who is to assume headship till completion of the forensic audit.
A statement issued by Special Adviser to the President, Media, and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in Abuja last night informed that Mr. Akwa is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants and a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
The statement explained that the development became necessary as a result of the plethora of litigation and a restraining order issued recently against the Interim Management Committee of the NDDC by a Federal High Court in Abuja
