Speaker of the House, Hon. , who made the disclosure at the commencement of plenary on Thursday said the decision was sequel to the failure of the Minister to publish names of members of the National Assembly who were beneficiaries of contracts in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Akpabio had alleged that 60% of the NDDC contracts awarded by the commission went to federal lawmakers.

Thereafter on Tuesday, Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house, gave the minister 48 hours to name the lawmakers or face “the wrath of the house”.
