Written by thereachfm on November 20, 2019
The House of Representatives says it will investigate the Niger Delta Development Commission over failure to present its 2019 budget to the National Assembly in violation of the NDDC act.
The decision followed a motion of urgent public importance moved by Benjamin Kalu during plenary who said the commission is making expenses which contravene the provisions of the 1999 constitution where the commission awarded contract of over ten billion naira without the approval of the National Assembly.
The House mandated the committee to invite the Minister of Niger Delta, God’swill Akpabio and the Board of the commission over the refusal of the commission to submit the budget 14 months after expiration.
