All original contract files relating to projects and programmes awarded by the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC between 2001 and 2019, will be taken over today November 12, 2020 as part of the on-going Forensic Audit of the Commission by the lead consultants, Olumuyiwa Basiru & Co as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari, according to a press statement released by
the Director, Corporate Affairs of the commission, Mr. Charles One Odili.

The takeover of the contract files by the Forensic Auditors will mark the commencement of the next stage of the exercise which started with the handover of contract documents covering projects captured during the verification exercise in April 2020.

“It is important to emphasize that the forensic audit is being carried out in phases and we are now ready to kick-off the Field Forensic Audit. To ensure the success of this exercise, we are making available all required documents needed by the field auditors to enable them discharge their duties efficiently and effectively”, the statement further said.

The NDDC management will meet with the forensic auditors to formally release the files which have been sorted in 16 lots as segmented for the forensic exercise.

“We wish to inform the public that all contract files are no longer in the office of the Acting Executive Director Projects, as they are now in the custody of the auditors”, concludes the release.
