Name NASS cotractors in 48 hours, Reps tell Akpabio


The House of Representatives has asked Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, to publish, within 48 hours, members of the 9th National Assembly who got contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Ruling on a matter of privileges brought by Minority leader, Ndudi Elumelu, Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila said the Minister, who alleged most of the contracts from the NDDC were given to members of the National Assembly, should publish the benefiting lawmakers.

Gbajabiamila said the Minister owes it a duty to himself, the House Committee on Niger Delta, the people of Niger Delta and Nigerians to publish the names.

Akpabio had, at his submission before the House committee on Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) on Monday, alleged that majority of members of the National Assembly were awarded contracts by the NDDC.
