The House of Representatives has given the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, a 48-hour ultimatum to publish members of the 9th National Assembly who got sixty percent of contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.
The motion, raised by Minority leader, Ndudi Elumelu, and ruled by Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila said the minister should publish the benefiting lawmakers, especially members of the 9th Assembly.
Mr Gbajabiamila further said Mr Akpabio should also publish the names of companies and the contracts they got or face the wrath of the House.
Although he said his initial reaction was to have a good laugh when the Minister made the allegations, he realised it infringes on the integrity of the House.
He 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 of lawmakers who got contracts from the NDDC.
