Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has announced that the House will sue Minister of Niger Delta Affairs,Godswill Akpabio for perjury over claims that 60% of NDDC contracts were awarded to members of the House. 

Akpabio was given a 48 hours ultimatum to produce a list of House members who obtained NDDC contracts 2 days ago after the Minister claimed the Commision gave out contracts to members of the House during the panel probe. 

Gbajabiamila said: “I asked the Clerk of  House to engage the services of legal counsel, and instruct them to initiate a criminal complaint of perjury against the Minister. At the same time, we will instruct counsel to explore the possibility of a civil defamation suit,”
