Written by Chukwuma Obiasia

The Acting Managing Director NDDC, Daniel Pondei collapsed today in the ongoing house committee public hearing on NDDC.

Mr Pondei was supposed to have been responding to allegations of 1.5billion naira of financial misappropriation from May when he suddenly collapsed on the chair and couldn’t respond to questions from the chairman of the probe panel.

Immediately, witnesses rushed to resuscitate him and thankfully, their efforts were effective as he regained consciousness shortly afterwards

Mr Daniel Pondei left the panel after feeling unwell and could not continue his defence.

Meanwhile, The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on the Niger Delta, Rep. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo (APC-Ondo), has stepped aside as head of the panel investigating the alleged corruption at the NDDC.
