The House of Representatives Ad-hoc Committee, investigating fraudulent practices in the collection and management of non-oil revenue remittances by MDAs, has threatened to issue a warrant of arrest on the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, if he fails to appear before the Committee, on Tuesday, to account for the revenue collected and remitted to the Federation Account.
The Committee had, on Thursday, walked out representatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, and National Agency for Food and Drug Administration Control, NAFDAC, because their Directors-General were absent at a meeting in the National Assembly.
Chairman of the Ad-Hoc Committee, Chike John Okafor, condemned the absence of the DGs.
The officials were said to be having a meeting in the office of the National Security Adviser, NSA. This made the committee to wonder if the NSA by law was more important than the National Assembly.
Chike John Okafor vowed that the legislature will go tough on government agencies that disrespect the National Assembly especially in honouring invitations during the course of oversight functions
