The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has given Godswill Akpabio, minister of Niger Delta affairs, 48 hours to name the lawmakers who got contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Gbajabiamila at the floor of the house on Tuesday commended the chairman of House Committee on NDDC, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo from withdrawing from the probe of the commission.
It would be recalled that Akpabio on Monday while appearing before the NDDC probe panel said most of the contracts awarded by the agency were to members of the national assembly.
“I am giving the minister 24 to 48 hours, to publish the names, the contracts, the companies, date, amount and the projects,” Gbajabiamila said.
“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”
