Senator Godswill Akpabio, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, has debunked the pipeline bombing and other corruption allegations levied against him by Dr. Gbene Joy Nunieh, the former acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Nunieh in a widely circulated video had accused Akpabio of authorizing the bombing of pipelines in the Niger Delta region of the country to remove her because she refused to do his bidding.
The ex NDDC MD said this on Friday, July 10, 2020, while addressing journalists after the final session of the Senate Ad hoc Committee investigating alleged financial recklessness by the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the NDDC led by Nunieh.
She said, “Some pipelines were bombed just to remove me. A serving minister can go and bomb the pipeline in the Niger Delta. Somebody that has been a governor, he has been a senator and a minister, he went to bomb the pipeline”.
Reacting to the allegation in an interview with Ngozi Alaegbu of Arise TV, Akpabio said Nunieh should go to a hospital, get some injections and relax, saying something is wrong with her temperament.
Akpabio said the alleged temperament issue should be confirmed from her four ex-husbands, saying the men should be brought to the TV studio to be questioned about Nunieh’s temperament.
“Let me just point this out, the last managing director that you mentioned, no matter the allegation, I wish she would go to a hospital, see a doctor and then get some injections and relax. I am not saying something is wrong with her, I am saying something is wrong with her temperament. You don’t need to ask me, you can ask about four other husbands she married.” he said.
