Bayelsa Poll: Whistleblower threatens CCB over PDP candidate’s assets
The Executive Director of Bayelsa Coalition for Good Governance and Accountability, who reported Diri to CCB in a September 18, 2019 petition Chief Joseph Ambakederimo, told journalists in Abuja on Thursday that he was uncomfortable with the levity with which the CCB had been handling the matter despite having confirmed the authenticity of his claim over a month ago.
Ambakederimo (the whistleblower) said he was surprised that the CCB has neither arrested nor prosecuted the Senator despite having summoned him and he diligently defended all the issues in the petition he sent against Senator Diri that he did not declare his assets when he was Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor between 2012 and 2013and Principal Executive Secretary between 2013 and 2014
Ambakederimo said: “I am suspecting a foul play in what CCB is doing in the case between me and Diri and I am going to court to challenge the Federal Government agency for not investigating and prosecuting the Senator despite my appearance before a two-man panel that interviewed me on the petition last month.
Senator Diri should be held responsible for subverting his political ambition for not declaring his assets as and when due in accordance with the laws of the land and should not blame anyone else for his fate,” the director said.
