A construction company, Webster Global Ventures has denied the claim made by the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of NDDC that it used the National Assembly Committee to coerce the agency into making payment to the firm. The claim was described by the management of Webster Global Ventures as a a deliberate attempt by the IMC to bring the company’s reputation into disrepute.
Webster Global Ventures described the statement credited to the Acting Managing Director of the NDDC, Prof. Kemebradikumo Daniel Pondei as false, inaccurate and misleading. The company was emphatic that the National Assembly never influenced any payment made to the company by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
According to a statement made available on Saturday by Opeolu Adarae, the Operations Director of Webster Global Ventures, “We are a company of international repute and no one should dent our image. National Assembly never influenced payment made to our company because we completed all projects we handled. We have been in operations for more than 20 years and we have never been linked to any form of fraud as a corporate company.
“Nobody gave us any recommendation and we do not have any business with the National Assembly. As a matter of fact, the Executive Director, Project for the NDDC, Dr Cairo Ojougboh inspected our project and certified it satisfactorily completed before payment was made”.
Meanwhile, Webster Global Ventures has advised the management of NDDC not to involve the forthrightly professional company in its ongoing face-off with the National Assembly.
