Senior Special Assistant to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Sen. Ita Enang has come out to say that the ongoing forensic audit on the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) is not targeted at individuals.
He disclosed this when he appeared on a News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum today in Abuja.
According to him, Buhari ordered the forensic audit at the NDDC to simply make sure there is proper value for money in projects executed.
He added that the audit will reveal what happened with projects executed in the last few years to necessitate amendments for the benefits of people of the Niger Delta.
His words, “The forensic audit is not going after individuals. It is going after money.
“If there had been budgets, for instance, for local refineries, programmes on agriculture, if certain amount was spent on roads and the roads were done, and the government keeps spending on the same projects, it is now time to find out through the forensic audit.
“The audit will also find out whether what was done in 2013 was repeated to have been done in 2014, whether there was a process where things were done in previous years, whether there is justification for money paid in those years and to whom it was paid.”
