Joy Nunieh, former acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), has emphatically stated she slappped Godswill Akpabio, minister of Niger Delta affairs, for sexually harassing her.
Speaking on Monday (today), during an interview with Arise TV, Nunieh said the incident happened at Akpabio’s guest house in Abuja.
Joy Nunieh said her reaction to the alleged harassment proved her intolerance for “nonsense” as a woman who hails from Rivers state.
“Why did he not tell Nigerians that I slapped him in his guest house at Apo? I am the only woman that slapped Akpabio. He thought he could come up on me. He tried to harass me sexually,”
“I slapped him. He tried to come on me. I am an Ogoni woman and nobody jokes with us. I showed Akpabio that Rivers women do not tolerate nonsense.”
Recall that she had accused Akpabio of inflating the NDDC budget.
She had accused the minister of directing her to include some projects from the refugee commission in the budget of the NDDC.
“Akpabio wrote me to put a list of projects from the refugee commission in the budget of NDDC. Refugee commission is another federal government commission for IDPs,”
“How do you tell me to put some of their projects in the NDDC budget when we have so many things to do in the Niger Delta? How do you explain that?”
