Following the failure of Senator Godswill Akpabio, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs to produce the names of lawmakers who got contracts from the NDDC after he was given a 48-hours notice to list them out,  the House of Representatives has initiated moves to sue him for perjury.

Earlier, at the hearing, Mr. Akpabio has alleged that members of the assembly got contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila on Thursday said that he has instructed the Clerk to engage lawyers to file the suit after the Minister failed to reveal the names of the lawmakers.

Gbajabiamila stated that he would have failed in his duties as the leader of the House if he allows anybody to tarnish the image and reputation of the hallowed chamber under any guise.
