From all indications, the House of Representatives may ask Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio to step aside as minister supervising the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC to enable it properly probe into the weighty allegations leveled against him by the ex-Managing Director of the Interim Management Committee, IMC of the commission.
A probe into it by TheNewsGuru.com, TNG revealed that by way of a motion, the House during plenary may ask Akpabio to step aside over the mudslinging between him and Dr Joi Nunieh, ex-MD of the Commission.
A source privy to this development told TNG that barring any last minute change in procedures, the motion maybe listed in Tuesday’s legislative session.
He said” we have it in good authority that the matter may not be allowed to vanish considering the weighty allegations and accusations raised by Dr Nunieh.
Recall that after last week’s investigative hearing in the Senate, Nunieh had opened a can of worms in a press briefing.
Akpabio too had not spared her as he raised issues on her character and she has vowed to challenge him in court.
Also, the lawmakers too are not too happy because their names were dragged into the foray.
