The House of Representatives ad-hoc committee has summoned heads of four government agencies to appear before in on Monday, August 19th, following the ruling of the Chairman of the Committee Yusuf Buba at a public hearing yesterday in Abuja.
The agencies to appear are the Nigerian Custom Service, Nigerian National Petroleum Cooperation, NNPC, Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, and Department of Security Service, DSS.
The Chairman said the committee resolved to take the action as the chief executives failed to honour the invitation to appear before it for an investigative public hearing.
The public hearing was on the need to determine why the Warri, Port Harcourt, Calabar, Onne and Onitsha inland complexes are not being put into maximum use.
Buba said it was an important matter and the committee would not let any individual or group treat it with levity. He said the lawmakers were determined to get to the root of the matter and ensure the ports operated to full capacity.
