He disclosed that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party would meet soon to deliberate on the challenges facing the APC.

The security operatives said they were at the secretariat to prevent any breakdown of law and order following the suspension of Oshiomhole by the court.

Recall that the court on Wednesday issued an order; restraining Adams Oshiomhole from parading himself as the National Chairman of the ruling APC.

In his ruling, JusticeSenchi Danlami gave an order of interlocutory injunction restraining Oshiomhole from parading himself as the National Chairman of the APC; pending the hearing and determination of the substance suite.

Indeed, the former governor has been in the eye of the storm lately; as he was recently suspended by his party at his Ward, Local Government and State levels.

It was on this premise the injunction application was grounded.

Allegations that triggered his suspension include; alleged highhandedness, misappropriation of funds and disregard for the rule of law.

After surviving major judicial upsets in Zamfara and Rivers State during the buildup to the last elections; which totally knocked them of the ballot; the APC has been battling with internal Unity, especially in its National Working Committee (NWC).

It was alleged that Adams, single-handedly appointed a National Secretary for the party without any constitutional backing.

Contract

Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, the chairman of the Senate Committee on Niger Delta has accused the minister of Niger Delta affairs, Godswill Akpabio of getting a N300 million fence construction contract from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

 

According to The Cable, while still the senator representing Akwa Ibom north-west, Akpabio requested for a N500 million contract from the NDDC in 2017. The Minister was reportedly given the contract of fencing Federal Polytechnic Ukana, Akwa Ibom, (N200 million), and Federal Government College, Ikot Ekpene (N100 million).

 

The publication reported that Akpabio got N150 million for entrepreneurship training on the use of modern farming implements for youths and women of Akwa Ibom north-west senatorial district and N50 million for the renovation of a hostel at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Enugu state.

Akpabio got N300m fence construction contract from NDDC - Senator Peter Nwaoboshi

 

Speaking to newsmen on Wednesday, June 3, Senator Nwaoboshi said the contracts were fully paid for but there was nothing to show for it.

 

He said:

 

“Findings show that while there was no physical evidence of implementation of these projects, checks show contracts were awarded and fully paid for.

“Such practices have turned the region to sites of abandoned projects.”

 

This is coming after Akpabio said he would not allow the NDDC to be raped under his watch. A few days ago, the former Governor of Akwa Ibom state raised an alarm about NDDC abandoned projects and the agency being “turned to an ATM” by politicians.

Akpabio said;

 

“We have also had a lot of political interference, people have not allowed NDDC to work as it ought to, people coming with ideas not to move the region forward but to move their pockets forward. It has always been so… I think people were treating the place as an ATM, where you just walk in there to go and pluck money and go away, I don’t think they were looking at it as an interventionist agency.”
