Minister Godswill Akpabio has reacyed the corruption allegations by the former NDDC MD, Mrs Joy Nunieh saying she has temper problems.
Mrs Nunieh had recounted her ordeal at the hands of Akpabio before she was removed as the NDDC MD., accusing him of serial corrupt practices and fraud.
Nunieh alleged that during her brief tenure at the commission, Mr Akpabio repeatedly pressured her to take “an oath of secrecy” that was meant to keep her from exposing fraud at the commission.
Godswill Akpabio during a television appearance slammed Joy Nunieh saying she has temper issues and needs “to go to the hospital; see a doctor; get some injection and relax.”
“I don’t want to discuss her because that’s not the job of a Minister. The last MD you mentioned, Joy Nunieh, I wish she can go to hospital, see a doctor take some injections and relax.
“I’m not saying that there’s something wrong with her, but I’m saying there’s something wrong with her temperament. Remember she had about four other husbands that she married.
“You also need to bring all the other former husbands to the studio so that you ask them questions one after the other because it looks like character. They will have answers to her problem. Not a professional conduct, is she a professional?
“They will tell you about her characters because what I’m seeing here…if somebody comes up and say something on television channel…then the whole world…Nigerians love bad news and my job is to protect the citizens of the country and the administration of Mr. President .
“I must tell you that even Mr. President, President Buhari was not aware of all these things because I did not want to bother because he will be shocked.
“She was not relieved of her appointment because of corruption. But she was relieved of her appointment because of insubordination. My ministry that supervised her wrote seven letters to her. She never responded. And then she said she was bigger than the Minister of Niger Delta.”
