The immediate past governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan has describe the recent imbroglio of NDDC linking him with some contracts as falsehood.
Dr. Uduaghan in his verified facebook page urges the public to disregard the falsehood that was published in Punch Newspaper of August 3rd, 2020.
The publication is mischievous and Members of the public are advised to disregard the said publication.
According to the statement on his handle signed by his Media Assistant,Monoyo Edon, “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 states 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 mischevious publication.
