The speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has directed the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio to provide the names of lawmakers taking contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Gbajabiamila gave Akpabio 24-48hours ultimatum to do so or face the wrath of the house.
The Speaker directed the Clerk of the National Assembly to send a communication to the minister today. The directive followed the adoption of a point of privilege.
Speaking concerning Keme Pondei, the speaker said the Committee on NDDC can summon the slumped acting MD of NDDC if they wish to do so.
“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.
