Dr Nunieh also accused Akpabio of engineered her removal from office because she refused to do his bidding to implicate the Chairman of Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs, Peter Nwaoboshi, on fraudulent contracts awards and executions.

She made the allegation while responding to questions from journalists on the sidelines of the legislative open hearing on NDDC N40 billion probe on Friday at the Senate wing of the National Assembly.

Accusing Akpabio of massive corruption, Nunieh disclosed that out of the N81 billion spent by the NDDC between October 2019 to May 2020, only N8 billion was expended by Interim Management Committee (IMC) under her leadership from October 29, 2019 to February 18, 2020.

Nunieh alleged that Akpabio made efforts to make her do his selfish bidding by coercing her take a fetish oath to commit fraud which she vehemently refused, hence, he removed her from office. She said:

“The Minister did all manner of dirty things to forcefully remove me out of office, like sponsoring the vandalisation of Agip Trunk A pipeline in Bayelsa as a way of making the unsuspecting public to believe that the youths in the area are angry with NDDC under my leadership.

“He even made frantic attempts to force me to swear to fetish oath which I vehemently refused before he succeeded in getting me out of the place for sole purpose of having his way to run the place the way he likes under the present team of IMC.”
