Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, immediate past Governor of Delta State has turned down allegations that the Niger Delta Commission (NDDC) awarded him contracts worth N429m.
On Monday, it was reported that Senator Godswill Akpabio listed the ex Governor alongside James Ibori as beneficiaries of contracts awarded by NDDC.
However, Dr. Emmanuel who described the claim as false said:
“We want to state very clearly that the said accusation is false. Dr. Uduaghan has never approached the NDDC for any contract whatsoever.
“It is even more ridiculous that the said contract is a road inside Port Harcourt town.
“Dr. Uduaghan has drawn the attention of the Hon. Minister of the Niger Delta, Sen Godswill Akpabio to the publication and hopes he makes a correction.”
