House of Representatives has resolved to institute a legal suit against Godswill Akpabio , the minister of Niger Delta Affairs, following the expiration of a 48-hour ultimatum.
On Tuesday, the House issued an ultimatum to the minister to publish the names of lawmakers whom he claimed had received contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Akpabio made the disclosure while answering questions at the probe session of the NDDC by the House of Representatives committee last week.
The clerk of the house has been directed to issue a criminal complaint of perjury and civil defamation suit against Mr. Akpabio.
More details to come.
