He also chided some APC members who had rejected committees allotted to them, accusing them of not helping to advance the Change mantra of the present administration.
Since the list was made public, many APC members in the House have denounced Dogara for giving more attention to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the composition of the committees and relegating the APC to the background.
The APC lawmakers said the plan was ostensibly to empower the opposition and weaken the APC.
