The acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Prof. Kemebradikumo Pondei, fainted on Monday during an investigative hearing at the National Assembly.
The NDDC Boss collapsed when he was seated before the members of the House Committee on NDDC while being grilled by them.
The committee had grilled him for about 45 minutes before he passed out unceremoniously without prior notice.
Pondei has been rushed out of the Conference Room 231, venue of the investigative hearing on illegal spending and mismanagement of funds of the commission.
The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, however, stayed behind.
Members of the committee are still debating whether to suspend the hearing or not.
