Senator Urhoghide opens up on getting contracts from NDDC

The senator representing Edo South Senatorial District, Matthew Urhoghide, has reacted to an allegation that he got contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.

The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, had listed Urhoghide among lawmakers who got contracts from the NDDC.

Denying the allegation when he appeared on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, Urhoghide described it as a wicked lie.

He said, “For Akpabio to say I have been a beneficiary is unfortunate and is a wicked lie and I just believe whatever mischief he wanted to perpetuate, I think Nigerians, through my own explanation, should be able to read between the lines.

“Akpabio’s records are not even correct. The contracts (NDDC) I have attracted to my constituency are in excess of eleven, adding that “he (Akpabio) does not know what is going on.

“Out of the six contracts that Akpabio mentioned, four are street lights projects which are ongoing with the contractors (gotten through competitive bidding) not paid a dime as mobilization.”
