Godswill Akpabio, the minister of Niger Delta, has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari will receive the report of the ongoing forensic audit of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, next month.

Akpabio indicated this while responding to questions from State House correspondents after a meeting with the Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari at the State House on Wednesday, June 23, 2021.

He maintained that the exercise was started not just to clean up the mess in the NDDC but to reposition the commission and ensure optimal performance.

The Minister said much progress has been made on the forensic audit.

He further declared that Nigeria cannot afford a crisis in South-South as recorded in other regions of the country because of its importance to the economic survival of the nation.

Akpabio equally noted that he has been meeting with stakeholders in the region as a way of calming tension. He also recommended that political leaders from other crisis-prone regions do the same to curb restiveness.
