House Of Reps Committee Walks Out NDDC, NCC Team!!

There was tension in the Green Chambers of the House of Representative Monday as the Ad Hoc Committee investigating Non-Remittance and Mismanagement of non oil Revenue, led by Hon Chike Okafor during its public hearing session at the National Assembly complex, walked out the team of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) led by the Executive Director Finance, Dr. Itotenaan Henry Ogiri and the team of Nigerian Communications Commission, (NCC) led by the Executive Director Public affairs.

Trouble started when the Ad hoc committee Chairman insisted that the chief executives of these agencies must appear before the House Committee in person in the next scheduled hearing session.

Hon. Chike Okafor insisted the house would want to deal with only the heads of the MDAs who are expected to answer questions on none remittance of taxes/revenue to the federation Account.

It would be recalled that the Speaker of the House of Representative, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara had set up a committee specifically to investigate allegations of non-remittance or mismanagement of government taxes/revenues.

This of course is in line with the promise of the principal officers of the National Assembly to assist the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government in its effort to recover all loots and non-remittances to the federation account.
