The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, on Wednesday, denied all the allegations made against him by a former acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Joi Nunieh, saying there is no iota of truth in them.
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. ”
