BREAKING: Court Reinstates Pondei-led NDDC Interim Management


Court Reinstates Pondei-led NDDC Interim Management  

The Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), headed by Prof. Daniel Pondei, has been reinstated by the Federal High Court in Abuja.

In a judgment released by the Incorporated Trustees of Forum for Transparency and Good Governance on January 13, 2021 in a complaint against the IMC, the court denied ever sacking the IMC-led Pondei.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the NDDC IMC to step aside on 12 December 2020 for an interim sole administrator to take over the interventionist agency’s affairs on the basis of the suspected court injunction against the IMC led by Podei.

The Court, however, reiterated that the NDDC IMC was never dismissed, stressing that “that this court did not grant an order for an interim injunction (against the IMC).”

The court also ordered two journalists from Channels and Sun Newspaper respectively to undo the misleading news story in suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/617/2020, and tell the world the truth of its decision.


The court was clear, according to the court papers sighted by Ejes Gist News, that the leave sought by the plaintiffs did not amount to an injunction but to a permit to sue, which was permitted, but is now struck by the court’s subsequent findings in January 2021.

It is not clear whether, since the President was previously advised by the Federal Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), to sack the interim executives, Prof Pondei-led IMC of NDDC will be reinstated by President Buhari.

But sources indicated that since it was entered into the records, the Presidency might be working to act on the latest judgment of the court.
