Acting Managing Director of the Interim Management Committee of the NDDC, Professor Daniel Keme Pondei, fainted during a public hearing by the House of Representatives Committee probing allegations of financial recklessness in NDDC Monday.
Pondei collapsed while he was being asked by lawmakers to explain why the commission under his leadership made huge payments to companies without appropriation.
Earlier, the Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee onNDDC, Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, had recused himself from the public hearing, stepping aside for the Deputy Chairman, Hon. Thomas Ereyitomi, to take over the ongoing probe.
