Abuja - In what looks like a fence mending move, the Speaker of the House of Representative, Yakubu Dogara on Tuesday met the chairmen and deputies of House standing committees, reports New Telegraph.
The House was thrown into another round of crisis when the Speaker announced the composition of 96 committees on October 22.
The composition of the committees was rejected by some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC),who were not happy that the Peoples Democratic Party got most of what they described as the grade ‘A’ committees.
