As reactions continue to trail the inauguration of the Interim Management Committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), more groups have joined the call for the sack of Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
Delta Youth Renaissance (DYR) and Abia Youth Volunteer Force (AYVF) have appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to show the embattled minister the way out of his cabinet.
The groups said with the recent happenings in the region, Akpabio is incompetence to be minister.
The group also demanded for the probe an alleged “N1.9 billion water hyacinth contract that was executed under the watch of the Minister.”
This is even as the President of Abia Youth Volunteer Force, Mr. Victor Enaemeka Ibeku, queried the 3-man Interim Committee that was recently set up by the Minister.
President of Delta Youth Renaissance, Ben Omukoro, in a statement released at the weekend in Benin City, Edo state, urged the federal government “not to spare anyone found culpable the alleged contract scam.”
On his part, Ibeku stressed that “Nigerians do not want interim committee” now, since Senate has already commenced the screening of the 16-member Board of NDDC, as requested by President Buhari.
It would be recalled that the Minister had told reporters in Abuja last Week that the interim committee was to prepare ground for the new Board and supervise the forensic audit which the President had ordered weeks ago.
According to him, “we are not against forensic audit of NDDC as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari, but, let the process be credible.”
