The Federal House of Representatives has told the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio to publish the names of lawmakers that benefitted from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) contracts within 48 hours or risks the full wrath of the House.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila who gave this directive asked the Clerk of the National Assembly to send a communication to the minister with immediate effect.
“I am giving the Minister 24-48 hours, to publish the names, the contracts, the companies, date, amount and the projects.
“I am directing the clerk to do so.
Failing which, this house will bring the full wrath of the house on him. It is important that we set this record straight. The Minister owes it to himself, to the committee, to people of Niger Delta, and the country to publish it. I will reserve my judgement. The minister came there to play games, but we do not play games here,” he said.
Gbajabiamila also stated that the Committee on NDDC can summon the Acting Managing Director of the NDDC, Keme Pondei if need be.
