Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to this new revelation

@MrOdanz

Akpabio just accused members of the House committee on NIger Delta of being beneficiaries of 90% of contracts awarded by the NDDC. He specifically pointed out that the two chairmen can explain better. And the members of the panel have been shoutig “order!! It is okay!!”

@jeffphilips1

Chai….Akpabio just knocked and provoked them, saying most of the jobs of NDDC are being given to legislators. The chairman had to stop him I told you guys but the probed and the probee are all culpable in the NDDC thievery

@FisayoSoyombo

Who else noticed how Akpabio deftly dropped the allegation that 60% of NDDC contracts were awarded to National Assembly members? I may have missed it but it appears the lawmakers missed it too Grinning face

. I hope this nice little revelation doesn’t spell the end of the #NDDCProbeFace with tears of joy

@DrPI_Imoesi

Akpabio just drop the bomb; most of the contracts in #NDDC are awarded to members of the house. Then the committee chairman race to stop the female member to halt argument. First what is the end goal for the probe? If there is no end goal nothing will come out! #NDDCProbe

@SodiqTade

They had to end it. If not Akpabio might even mention names. And the NASS members involved might even faint. Lmao One way.

@dondekojo

If Akpabio had continued, we’d have witnessed another slump, this time from a comiteee member
