NDDC N40 billion scandal: Delta traditional ruler reveals Commission’s plot to change ownership of his companies

Published

The traditional ruler of Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State, Nelson Agbamuche, the Odozi Ani of Akwukwu Igbo Kingdom, has raised the alarm over plot to transfer ownership of his companies by the leadership of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Agbamuche in a statement issued and made available to CAPITAL POST in Abuja, said that the NDDC had continued to attribute the ownership of his company to another person.

The monarch also said that contract awards that he had earlier denounced and called on security agencies to investigate, were being attributed to him by NDDC.

According to him, the latest mention is uncharitable and very unbecoming of an institution that should have records in its care to verify contract related issues, devoid of false allegations.

Agbamuche reinstated that he had been bidding for jobs in the NDDC and executing the ones he won with all diligence without any influence or support from the Senate.

According to him, I have never been to the National Assembly; the security agencies can please check the CCTV recordings of their premises to confirm this.

“At this point, I am beginning to suspect a deliberate conspiracy to forcefully capture what rightfully and legally belongs to me.

“My companies have been winning contracts for over 15 years; I am therefore worried that misguided officials are attributing the ownership of these same companies to another person.

“I am also bothered about the calculated deception that I signed contract agreements for 11 companies, this is another blatant lie.

“It is bothersome when this kind of barefaced mendacity is supposedly coming from an official quarter. I state unequivocally that this is untrue,” he said.

The monarch said that a contract for the supply of chairs was advertised on national dailies and he came across it.

Agbamuche said companies bided differently as a common practice to improve chances in the highly competitive bid process.

According him, we were won and satisfactorily executed, certificates of job completion were duly issued afterwards and payments were made.

The monarch said all contractors were meant to lease warehouses for a certain period for the purpose of warehousing the goods with the supervision of NDDC officials.

He explained that that it was because the commission’s warehouse could not contain the supplies made.

“Mine was not different; we leased a warehouse to store those items under strict supervisions of commission’s officials until they personally distributed goods by themselves.

“Records are there, the recent baseless allegations that could easily be verified from official files in their possession are therefore appalling,” he said.

The monarch said that allegations claiming his company recently carried out a contract in Delta State was another outright lie.

According to him, the last set of jobs any of my companies executed for Delta State government was around 2006, during the tenure office Chief Ibori.

Agbamuche recalled that the completion of the Magistrate Court at Ibusa Road, Asaba was the last and that the durable delivery attests to his company’s track record.

“Our glowing records with multinationals and MDGs should therefore not be tainted with unfounded speculations.

“I did not supply plastic chairs to Delta state nor involved in the sale of any. This can be verified, easily.

“For the umpteenth time, these people should leave me out of their diatribes and Cold War.

“I have responsibilities to my kingdom that demands unassailable public records that I have carefully built.

“This satanic drag must stop; I may be forced to seek redress against any official if this does not stop,” he added
