Reps summon Emefiele, NDDC over abandoned projects


The Nigerian House of Representatives has summoned the Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Nelson Braimbraifa, as well as all directors of the commission, and Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele over abandoned projects.

The House Committee on NDDC, which is probing the Federal Government projects abandoned in the Niger Delta region, held its inaugural investigative hearing in Abuja on Tuesday but the officials were absent and sent no representatives as well.

The lawmakers however, have  threatened the officials with arrest warrant if they failed to answer the summons.

The lawmakers, who threatened to invoke their powers in Section 89 of the Constitution, asked Emefiele, Braimbraiga and others to appear before the panel on Friday.
