Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio has said the former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Joy Nunieh, did not participate in the mandatory one year service of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) neither does she have an exemption letter.
According to Akpabio that was one of the reasons why she was relieved from her duty as Managing director of NDDC.
He told the House of Representatives Committee investigating financial mismanagement in the NDDC on Monday
“The former Managing Director of the NDDC was relieved of her appointment when I received a letter from the then Chief of Staff (may his soul rest in peace) that she did not possess the requisite qualifications to be there, he said
“For instance, we have written twice to the National Youth Service Corps and twice they have insisted that she never served and that she does not have an NYSC certificate or an exception.”
