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 . ”
