… debunks any association with Senator Akpabio
Rodnab Constructions Limited has said all contracts awarded it by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) were duly awarded.
The construction company made this known in reaction to reports that N16.2billion contract awarded to it for the completion of the permanent headquarters of NDDC, was done illegally, without authorization.
The company also denied being queried by the Auditor-General of the Federation, saying it has not seen any such query bandied about in the social media.
In a statement by, Adamu Ishaku Musa, it’s company Secretary and Legal adviser, the company said the report is a “complete cocktail of lies, innuendos and a figment of the imagination of the authors”.
“Our attention has been drawn to a report in the social media alleging that the N16.2billion contract awarded to Rodnab Construction Limited, for the completion of the Permanent Headquarters of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, was done illegally, without authorization.
“For the records, all contracts awarded to Rodnab Constructions Limited in NDDC and other places were duly awarded, they were duly tendered for, won and approved by the NDDC Governing Board and further approved by the Federal Executive Council, having met all the necessary conditions.”
The company noted it is not in the business to flauting rules, cutting corners or defrauding the system
“We take Government rules and financial regulations very seriously. It is therefore mischievous and malicious to insinuate that contracts duly approved by all approving organs of Government are illegal” it said.
The company noted that neither the office of the Auditor-General of the Federation or the NDDC have contacted us either in writing or in person over the N16.2billion NDDC contract with regards to any violation.
“As a law abiding indigenous contracting firm, we are equipped with the best hands as financial experts and Internal auditors applying best professional practices, we have never received any query as claimed by the writers from the office of the Auditor-General of the Federation or anyone.”
The company also noted it has no personal affiliation with the commission or the minister.
“And for the umpteenth time, Rodnab Constructions Limited have no personal relationship with the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
“Rodnab Construction Limited, a registered indigenous top-grade company in Nigeria whose involvements in NDDC Contracts predates Senator Akpabio’s appointment as Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, is effectively helping to fulfil the mandate of NDDC in infrastructure development of the Niger Delta Region.”
Warning the public against making false claims, the company said it is committed to guarding it’s integrity.
“While we are committed to guarding the integrity and trust of our company, we advise people to be weary of people who are bent on tarnishing the image of others and organizations for political, ideological, economic reasons.”
