Nigeria’s House of Representatives is angry that some political appointee of President Muhammadu Buhari do not honour invitations to appear before its public accounts committee (PAC) on allegations of financial irregularities leveled against them.
The House has therefore decided to petition the President over the development
Chairman of the committee, Hon. Wole Oke, Wednesday, directed the clerk to forward a petition to the president through the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and the Chief of Staff to the President on the matter.
The committee said it is unhappy with the refusal of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emiefele; Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Melee Kyari; Managing Director, Nigeria Ports Authority, Hadiza Bala-Usman and the Bureau for Public Enterprises (BPE) to appear before it over sales of Federal Government’s landed property across the country.
Also among the defaulting MDAs are the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), and the Petroleum Equalisation Fund (PEF).
