The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, has denied all the allegations made against him by a former acting MD of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Joi Nunieh, saying the allegation is false.
Nunieh had in a recent interview accused Akpabio of sexually harassing her, corruption and abuse of office, among other allegations.
But the minister, in a statement by his spokesman, Aniete Ekong, described the allegations as “false, malicious and libellous.”
The statement read, “Let it be known that there is no scintilla of truth in all the allegations peddled around by Ms. Nunieh. They are simply false!
“The Honourable Minister did not at any time, place or circumstance make any form of sexual advances to Ms. Nunieh, not even to put himself in a position or posture suggestive of sexual advances towards Ms. Nunieh, or any female staff of his ministry or the NDDC.”
You will recall that Nunieh claimed she slapped him when he harassed her.
