The media aide said the director had been sick even before the pandemic era.

“There’s been misinformation. People think that he was the Director that died in NDDC some months ago of COVID-19 and buried last week. I learnt he’s been very sick for a long time for over a year before he passed on,” he said.

Okpo served in the Offices of the Auditor-General, Accountant-General, Budget Office, and Head of Civil Service.

Others were Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission, Ministries of Petroleum Resources and Transport, respectively.
