Nigerian’s House of Representatives, on Thursday, took a decision to drag Mr. Godswill Akpabio before a Court of law, for making indicting comment against it.
Akpabio is Buhari’s Minister for Niger Delta Affairs.
While appearing before the House Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) probing the alleged financial recklessness on Monday, Akpabio had told the Committee that about 60% of total contracts at the NDDC were awarded to Members of the National Assembly.
Irked by the comment, the Lawmakers passed a resolution the next day, giving Akpabio 48 hours to make public, the names and details of such lawmakers who were beneficiaries of the contacts.
At the expiration of the 48-hour ultimatum, Speaker of the House, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila, in his opening speech at the plenary, ordered that the Minister be sued for making such “indicting” comment, which he has failed to substantiate.
