Former NDDC MD, Joy Nunieh, Finally Testifies Before House Of Representatives Members

Former Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Joy Nunieh, on Friday testified before members of the House of Representatives Committee investigating alleged financial misappropriation in the commission.

The hearing, which was supposed to have taken place on Thursday, was shifted to Friday after policemen laid siege to Nunieh’s house in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, preventing her from leaving for the airport to travel to Abuja. 

After being rescued from her house by Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, the ex-NDDC boss was able to finally make the trip to Abuja to testify before the lawmakers on the crisis within the commission.
