It is ridiculous to link me to NDDC contract, Ex-Governor Uduaghan retorts
Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan


Immediate past two-time Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, has described The Punch Newspaper publication which linked him to NDDC contract as ridiculous, particularly against the backdrop of the report that the said contract is a road inside Port Harcourt town, valued at N429m. 

 

The former Governor in a statement released few minutes ago through his Media Assistant, Comrade Monoyo Edon, stated that he has never approached the NDDC for any contract whatsoever.

 

The statement noted inter-alia: “The attention of His Excellency, former Gov. of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, has been drawn to a publication by The Punch Newspapers of Monday 3rd August 2020, which stated that the "Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has linked two former governors of Delta State, Messrs James Ibori and Emmanuel Uduaghan, to the various contracts awarded by the Niger Delta Development Commission"

 

“In the said publication, it was stated that "Uduaghan was linked to the emergency repairs of Close B, Alhaji Estate & Environs, Rumuodomaya, Port Harcourt at a cost of N429m."

 

“We want to state very clearly that the said accusation is FALSE. Dr. Uduaghan has never approached the NDDC for any contract whatsoever. It is even more ridiculous that the said contract is a road inside Port Harcourt town. 

 

“Dr. Uduaghan has drawn the attention of the Hon. Minister of the Niger Delta, Sen Godswill Akpabio to the publication and hopes he makes a correction. 

 

“Members of the public are advised to disregard the mischievous publication”.
