The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has given the Minister of the Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio 48 hours to publish the mames of lawmakers who got contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Gbajabiamila gave the ultimatum on Tuesday during plenary while reacting to a point of order moved by the Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu.

Elumelu urged the House to invite the Minister of the Niger Delta Affairs, Akpabio to mention those who got contracts from the NDDC.

Reacting, Gbajabiamila said, “I’ve never once collected contracts from the NDDC and I know I can speak for many other members.

“I hereby call on the minister to within 24-48 hours to publish the names, contracts, date and unveil the companies of the 60 per cent projects that were given to the National Assembly.

“The Minister owes it to himself, committee, Niger Delta and the people of Nigeria to publish details of those who have been given contracts”.

He further said failure by the Minister to provide the full details of the beneficiaries would leave the House with no other option than to invoke the full wrath of the law.
