- Godsday Orubebe
A former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe, has told the Code of Conduct Tribunal that he regretted serving the country as a minister.
Orubebe said this on Wednesday while testifying at the tribunal during his trial.
Orubebe said it was unfortunate that he served the country for over six years only to be put on trial for alleged non-declaration of assets.
He said: “I love this country and I served as a minister with all my heart and to the best of my ability.
“But I am pained that the same country is putting me through all the things I know nothing about.
“I slept in the creeks for two weeks trying to persuade the militant to drop their weapons.
“Finally, we succeeded and we got amnesty.
“But see what I am being subjected to today.”
