The House of Representatives is beginning to struggle with the investigations into the $10 million bribery allegation against the House leadership over the proposed Infectious Diseases Control Bill. The House ad hoc committee mandated to investigate the bribery allegations after initial sittings did not report to office on Thursday for continuation of the investigation.
The investigations committee adjourned sitting last Monday but could not resume on Thursday. The Committee is chaired by Henry Nwawuba.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, while conceding to populist criticisms and demands for public hearing, said that the $10 million bribery allegation will be investigated threatening legal suit against the forces behind the allegation.
