The House of Representatives on Thursday summoned the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele; Group Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mele Kyari; and Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Col. Hameed Ali (retd.); and the Director-General, Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi.
Naija News understands that they were all summoned due to their failure to attend an investigative hearing organised by the House on the moribund state of ports in the country, leading to the congestion and perennial gridlock at the Apapa Port, Lagos State.
The Bureau of Public Enterprises and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) were also absent from the hearing.
Speaking at the hearing of the ad hoc committee, its Chairman, Buba Yakub, lamented the non-appearance of the government officials.
The committee resolved that the absent officials must appear before the panel on Monday.
