“It’s a wicked lie”- Senator denies receiving contracts from NDDC


Senator Mathew Urhoghide has denied receiving contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Senator Mattew who is representing Edo South Senatorial District is among the list of lawmakers accused of benefiting from an alleged contract from the NDDC.

The senator pointed out that the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio is not saying the truth.

Senator Mattew today said on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily;

“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.”
