The Governor of River state, Nyesom Wike has alleged that management of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, gave out the sum of N10 billion to the opposition to fight against him during the last election.
“Unfortunately, they have turned it to a different thing. NDDC is a cash cow for politicians. In my own election, NDDC brought N10 billion cash to fight against me,” Wike said on Tuesday in an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital.
According to Wike, the NDDC has lost focus from the initial mission for which it was established for, and has become a money making machine for some corrupt politicians.
“I have said before and it is very clear, my concern is everybody knows that NDDC was set up for the development of the region,” he said.
