Reps summon Amaechi

03 November 2016, 13:32

Abuja - The House of Representatives on Wednesday summoned the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi

The minister according to Leadership is expected to appear before its committee on Public Accounts and explain the rationale behind an alleged authorization of N25.250 million as donations in 2008 without appropriation.

The summon is sequel to inability of Director General of Nigerian Maritime and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Mr. Dakuku Peterside to produce required documents and explain to the committee why the spending was made in 2005 when funding for it was contained in the 2008 budget.

According to the deputy chairman of the committee, Ibrahim Baba, Amaechi is to appear with the ministry’s budgetary appropriations for 2008 to determine whether there were provisions for the said donations in it or no.
