NDDC acting MD Pondei slumps during probe


Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NNDC), Prof Kenebradikumo Pondei, has slumped.

Pondei momentarily lost consciousness on Monday during the ongoing probe of the commission by the House of Representatives Committee on NDDC.

The NDDC boss had only faced questions for about 45 minutes before he passed out.

He was rushed out of the Conference Room 231, venue of the investigative hearing on illegal spending and mismanagement of funds in the commission, following attempts to resuscitate him.
