Former Gov Ibori Denies NDDC Contract Scam Allegations And Says He Does Not Want To Be Part Of The Dance In The Market Square

Former Governor of Delta State, Chief James Onanefe Ibori, has denied benefiting from contracts awarded by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) as alleged by Niger Delta Minister, Godswill Akpabio.⁣

In a letter sent to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, Akpabio had named serving lawmakers and former governors of Niger Delta states who benefited from the corruption that has become the lot of the NDDC.⁣
One of those mentioned by the minister was Ibori, who governed Delta State from 1999 to 2007.⁣
However, in a statement made available to the press by his media aide Tony Eluemunor, Ibori dismissed Akpabio’s allegations as ridiculous and unworthy of a response.⁣
“Ibori did not want to join in the ‘dance in the market square’ going on in the NDDC right now,” the statement reads.⁣
“He has decided to make this clarification for the records because friends and associates inundated him with phone calls this morning.⁣
“So, he is stating categorically that he never solicited for, or was awarded, or indeed executed any contract with NDDC or any government agency, at any time, for that matter.”⁣
The statement added that Ibori has not been accused of being a government contractor since he left office as governor.⁣

    1. The irony of Ibori is that when he dies he will be celebrated as an achieved leader.

      Say what you want about his conviction record but no government has done as much infrastructure for their state like Ibori. When Ibori was a governor you can see visible the things he did .the people he empowered and the wealth distribution he encouraged in the state.

      It is the same allocation Udugha and the current governor get but these two don't come near Ibori when it comes to infrastructure

  2. Before nko?

    Wetin we expect? 🙄

  3. oh James Ibori and his money laundry saga that year,i didn't keep up with how it went

  4. Wetin go hang our mouths about Ibori?

  5. Lies. They all first deny. Then, gradually the truth comes out. We kuku ma know you as a big thief too. No surprise there.

  6. Akpabio knows what he is saying, he is not a small child.
