In a statement Friday  by his Chief Press Secretary, Anietie Ekong, Akpabio advised that the public should not be misled by what he described as spurious claims, adding that the NDDC his  supervision will not be distracted, neither will the ongoing forensic audit of the Commission be derailed through blackmail and intimidation.

According to him, he would remain focused on the mandate of President Muhammadu Buhari to reposition the Commission for sustainable development of the Niger Delta region.
