05 November 2015, 12:12

Abuja - Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has urged lawmakers elected under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to take the list of committees of the House in good faith, reports Vanguard.

Dogara, who met with the committee chairmen and their deputies on Tuesday said he cannot tinker with the list since it has already been made public.

He stated that he could only tamper with the headship of the committees after observing the performance of their chairmen for two years.

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.
