The House of Representatives committee on Ecological Funds has summoned the director-general of the Nigerian Governors’ forum (NGF), Asishana Okauru, over the utilisation of Ecological Funds by state governors.
The committee also summoned the director-general of the Hydro Electric Power Producing Areas Commission (HYPADEC), Abubakar Sadiq Yelwa, the director-general, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Mustapha Ahmed, as well as the Federal Ministry of Health and Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs.
The chairman of the committee, Ibrahim Isiaka, issued the summon during investigative hearing on the “Need to Investigate the Total Consolidated Accruals and Utilization of Ecological Fund.”
The chairman said those affected are expected to appear before the panel tomorrow.
Isiaka expressed displeasure over the failure of some of the Ministries, Departments and Agencies ( MDAs) as well as several state governments to honour its invitations.
