The political empire of the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Mr Godswill Akpabio is currently on fire as he has been running from pillar to post to save his head from the corruption that he engineered in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
According to Secret Reporter, an online medium, Akpabio in a desperate move is alleged to have looted over N500 billion from Akwa Ibom State account for the eight years that he held sway as governor is currently in talks with Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) to give him pass for a flight to Kwara State in disguise of visiting the Emir for Ramadan fast.
The online medium report authoritatively that his real motive for seeking the pass for him to charter a private Jet to Kwara is to enable him plead with the Emir of Ilorin to take him to see the new Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, who has refused to see him, despite all the tricks he has applied from his trick bag.
The occasion according to reliable sources will afford Akpabio chance to pledge his loyalty to Gambari if the respected Emir of Ilorin succumbs to his pleading to accompany him on the trip is his new Man Friday, Mr Cairo Ojughboh who was already broke financially until he was appointed as a member of the NDDC Interim Management Committee (IMC), where he has allegedly amassed wealth.
They held meetings on Saturday from 9 pm till 3 am to conclude on how to get FAAN nod as well as some top Northern leaders to soften the ground for their movement. It is not clear if FAAN will give Akpabio pass when he is not an essential worker and not on any national assignment. He is currently facing national probe over the mysterious disappearance of N40 billion from NDDC coffers under his watch.
He has made several frantic and desperate effort to cover up the ongoing probe of his alleged looting of NDDC of over N40 billion meant for the development of the Niger Delta region .
This time as Daily Watch who first exposed Godswill Akpabio’s looting in NDDC has also found he is doing everything possible to ensure he does not go to jail which his opponents want him by pressing vehemently with barrage of documents to present before the various probe panels to nail him and send him to jail to serve as a deterrent to other looters in the country.
