He said the Commission is failing to perform because they have placed politics above the interest of the people.
“What NDDC does through the supervision of their party is to make sure they vote out some money to ensure certain governors do not return.
“You can imagine NDDC wasting ten billion to remove me here, is the money not wasted now?….. NDDC wasted ten billion naira to remove just one governor,” Wike stated.
