Lawmakers investigating corruption allegations in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) had on Friday summoned the Acting Managing Director/CEO of the NDDC, Kemebradikumo Daniel Pondei and the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, to appear before them today, Monday, as the country seeks to understand how budgetary allocations of over N81 billion to the agency has been spent.

During the briefing, Kemebradikumo Daniel Pondei almost fainted before the House of Representatives Committee. This led to drama at the venue, as members of the committee rallied around him trying to resuscitate him, and according to reports he has been taken out of the hearing to the hospital.

Before the pandemonium, Daniel Pondei was being questioned over N536m paid to a group associate in the Niger Delta region.

Watch the video below:

Nigerians have joined the discussion on Twitter, with a large percentage who feel Pondei’s action must have been stage-managed, While others hoped for Pondei’s quick recovery to allow for continuation of the probe.

    The Nigerian government is completely corrupt and it didn’t just commenced. There should be specific laws made to curb such incidence from occurring. Criminals like this fellow should be executed along with his entire household. Fainting will not save him jungle justice will do.

    This games should come to an end. It is a well known fact that at the end of this cameo nothing will be done to this fellow. Magu is a complete example of how the Nigeria government operates. The story o Orji Uzor Kalu is another clear example of total corruption in Nigeria. Nothing was done to those caught in the act of collecting bribes like ” GANDUJE”. This fool pretending to had fainted should be shot in the leg to wake him up.
