Daniel Pondei, the acting Chairman of the NDDC has broken his silence on him fainting at the National Assembly few weeks back.
Pondei fainted while being asked questions by the Senate committee on the misappropriation of the budget of the NDDC, leading to mixed reactions on social media.
According to reports Pondei spoke on the events surrounding the particular incident, as he reiterated that he wasn’t acting.
“I had an unexplained, unexpected health challenge. It is ridiculous to think that people believed I was acting. I would not pray for anyone to experience what I went through. I do not run from issues. I have put all that behind me.”
