UPDATE: The previously published headline on this article is false, there has been no record of NDDC awarding a N2.3BN contract to build a bridge in the region. More specifically, there has been no contract to build a bridge in the Elebele community in the state, although there was a request in 2018 to build a bridge, the contract has not be awarding nor executed.


Photos of the $5 million Bridge built by NDDC surfaces. The total cost which approximately sums up to N2.3billion have gathered a lot of reactions from Nigerians.

Revelations have started to emerge following the Federal Government approval of forensic auditing of the financial records and contracts executed by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) over the years.

There has been a public outcry for the government to carry out an investigation into the awards of contract and the activities of those responsible in handling the affair of the agency.

Since the creation of the Niger Delta commission in 2000, there have been no auditing of the financial records of the government agency.

On Monday, the House began its investigation and probe into the alleged financial misappropriation in the NDDC which saw the acting MD of the government agency, Dr. Pondei fainting during the session.

Among the shocking discovery is that in 2018, the commission awarded a contract to construct the Elebele pedestrian bridge at Ogbia local government in Bayelsa state.

The Elebele bridge contract was awarded for N2.3 Billion naira and was completed and commissioned  in 2020.

Checkout photo of the said bridge below:

Guess it's high time all citizens gather to pray to the one and only true living God to save them from these satanic polithiefians and visit HIS vengeance on them and their household. This is just too much for any nation to bear. God needs to take back control from all the demons plaquing the country
