Reps invite Braimbraifa, Emefiele over abandoned projects

The House of Representatives, on Tuesday, summoned the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele; the immediate past Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Professor Nelson Braimbraifa, together with all the directors currently serving on the commission.

The House Committee on NDDC, which has been investigating the Federal Government projects abandoned in the region, during its inaugural investigative hearing in Abuja express anger over the absence of the officials and their representatives.

The development forced the lawmakers to threaten the officials with an arrest warrant if they failed to answer the summons, Punch reports.

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.
