Drama As Acting NDDC MD, Pondei, ‘Slumps’ Under Reps’ Grill
Niger Delta Development Commission Acting Managing Director, Daniel Pondei, appeared to lose consciousness as the House of Representative grilled on him on Monday.
The committee is in its fourth day of public hearing as it investigates alleged financial misappropriation at the agency.
Pondei had been grilled for over an hour and when he slowly slumped over his desk, appearing too faint.
Once he was spotted, several people present at the hearing rushed to his aid, propping him up and attempting to stabilise him, with the proceedings halted.
He then appeared to be in a seizure with a man, holding open his mouth as others held him upright. After he appeared to regain and lose composure intermittently, he was moved out of the session.
