As the National Assembly witnesses two factions vying for the coveted position, namely the camp led by Senator Akpabio and that led by former governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State, discussions and debates among elected lawmakers have been underway leading up to the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly on June 13.

Dismissing the case filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against Akpabio as sponsored, he attributed such accusations to a common occurrence where politically exposed individuals face scrutiny during election campaigns.

Drawing a parallel with the allegations faced by President Bola Tinubu during his presidential campaign, Ndume highlighted that they are undeterred by the sponsored groups’ claims against Akpabio, as the appropriate anti-graft agencies are well-equipped to handle such matters.

Clarifying Accusations:

Addressing specific allegations, Senator Ndume pointed out that although accusations suggest corrupt activities occurred under Akpabio’s oversight at the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), they have failed to establish any misappropriation of funds during his tenure as governor or as Minister.

Emphasizing that Akpabio was not the accounting officer of the NDDC but rather headed the supervising ministry, Ndume refuted claims of Akpabio’s failure to constitute the NDDC board, highlighting that this responsibility lies with the president of the country.
