10:59 Feb 27 2017 Bayelsa, Nigeria

Nigeria’s Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) has revealed that funds released by the last administration to relevant ministries to complete the East-West Road were diverted into private pockets.

The Chairman of ICPC, Mr. Ekpo Nta, who spoke in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State when he led a delegation of ICPC to inaugurate the Bayelsa State Anti-Corruption Summit, Transparency and Accountability and paid a courtesy call to the state Governor, Mr. Seriake Dickson, said the commission was shocked to discover that persons saddled with the responsibility of completing the road linking all the states in the Niger Delta region shortchanged their people.
