Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives has stated that the Acting NNDC MD, Pondei will no longer appear before the committee again after he collapsed at the hearing yesterday.
The Acting NDDC MD collapsed yesterday while being drilled by the panel and was immediately rushed for medical attention, which brought the session to a halt for some minutes.
However, Femi noted at the resumption of the hearing that a written response would be accepted from the acting NDDC MD.
”There would be no need for the MD of NDDC to appear anymore since he has submitted a written response.”
”I wish Mr. Pondei safe and speedy recovery and I have also sent the Medical Director of the National Assembly to follow up to ascertain the condition of the MD. Thank you very much and I, therefore, hand over to the current chairman of the Committee, Mr. Thomas Ereyitomi to continue with the hearing.”
