The mittee’s chairman, Peter Nwaoboshi, who spoke when the Minister of the Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, appeared to defend the 2020 budget of the ministry, said it was discovered during an oversight function that so many projects were abandoned across the nine Niger Delta states.

“I dare to say that there is no state or local government where there are no abandoned projects in the Niger Delta and we cannot continue like that.
