Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila has said there is no need again for the Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Kemebradikumo Pondei who slumped during the ongoing investigative hearing to appear before the committee.
Speaker Gbajabiamila stated this on Monday, while responding to questions after the NDDC boss collapsed and was rushed out of the venue of the hearing to receive medical attention.
Gbajabiamila said since the acting MD has submitted written responses, the committee will now adopt his written responses.
“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.”
