House of Representatives has sued the minister of Niger Delta Affairs Mr. Godswill Akpabio, before a Court of law, for making indicting comment against its members.
Akpabio while appearing before the House for probe over mismanagement of fund by the NDDC, alleged that about 60% of total contracts at the NDDC were awarded to members of the National Assembly.
Irked by the allegation, 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.
