Doubts trail forensic audit, stirs fresh concern in N’Delta –


• Stakeholders grumble over lingering board inauguration

By Emma Amaize, Regional Editor, South-South

AFTER more than a few botched attempts to live up to his promises, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio,  submitted the much-awaited forensic audit report on Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, September 2, to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, SAN, instead of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Why Malami became a stand-in for President Muhammadu Buhari, who had earlier expressed his readiness to receive the audit report has not been clarified until date, but the failure of the Federal Government to inaugurate the substantive board of the interventionist agency, screened and cleared by the National Assembly more than a month after the audit report was submitted, has also remained a mystery.
