Many heads roll in NDDC over Forensic Audit, key staff sent on mandatory leave

By Ebi Perekeme 

The Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, has placed some members of staff on mandatory leave with full benefits, pending the conclusion and outcome of the on-going forensic audit.

The action is based on the advice of the Lead Consultant on the Forensic Audit exercise, which has been accepted by the Interim Management Committee, IMC.

In a press statement by Charles Obi Odili, Director, Corporate Affairs, April 29, and made available to GbaramatuVoice, the staff sent on mandatory leave fall into three categories, mainly those indicted by security agencies like the Police, ICPC and the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for acts of impropriety.

Those whose acts are the subject of investigations by the forensic auditors, and those who held key and sensitive positions in the commission during the period covered by the forensic audit and whose continued presence in the Commission will interfere, impair, undermine or compromise the objective forensic auditing of the affairs of the commission.

Recall that GbaramatuVoice had earlier today hinted that impending sack loomed in NDDC. According to the source, the mandatory leave took immediate effect and the affected staff have already been notified.
