The CNPP urged the Interim Management Committee, IMC, of the NDDC to “never to be cowed by the National Assembly, which has never been conclusive in any probe.”

In a statement issued on Monday by its Secretary General, Chief Willy Ezugwu, while reacting to media report credited to the Executive Director in charge of Projects at the NDDC, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, who alleged that if the list of those involved in looting the commission is released the country will break, the CNPP demanded for the arrest and prosecution of those involved in the contract scam.

“The CNPP has been in series of consultations with critical civil society stakeholders to take a position on the ongoing probe of the NDDC.

“However, it became imperative to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to take seriously the allegation that some members of the National Assembly are plotting to stall the forensic audit ordered by himself.

It is cheering news to hear that the new NDDC Interim Management Committee, IMC, has resolved to ensure the conclusion of the forensic audit despite the alleged efforts of the National Assembly to muzzle the IMC and frustrate the exercise.
