The presidential aide stated that Akwa, who is the acting Executive Director, Finance and Administration of the Commission, would assume headship till completion of the forensic audit of the NDDC.
“The development became necessary as a result of plethora of litigation and a restraining order issued recently against the Interim Management Committee of the NDDC by a Federal High Court in Abuja,” he said.
African Examiner reports that the sacked Interim Management Committee of NDDC and other previous administration of the commission were enmeshed in massive frauds and corruption, a development that necessitated the ongoing forensic audit of the commission’s books.
