Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has refuted allegations by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, on claims that the Minister wrote personal letters to him when he was Senate Minority Leader, requesting for Niger Delta Development Commission’s, NDDC intervention projects in his senatorial district.

Chief Press Secretary to Akpabio, Anietie Ekong, in a statement noted that the said letters written by Akpabio to seek for projects were addressed to the leadership of the Senate, contrary to Nwaoboshi's claim.


He further urged Nwaoboshi to respond to some of the grievous allegations made against him by the Interim Management Committee, IMC of the NDDC, that he wrecked the Commission’s budget apart for his personal benefits.


He said there is an understanding that people are getting hysterical of the ongoing forensic audit because of what had happened in the past, adding that making spurious allegations against Senator Akpabio cannot stop the probe.


Senator Nwaoboshi had at a media briefing last week, alleged that he is in possession of Akpabio’s letters urging him to include certain projects meant for his constituency in the NDDC’s annual budget during the 8th Senate.
