The House of Representatives has resolved to institute a legal suit against the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, following the expiration of a 48-hour ultimatum.

During an investigative hearing by the House of Representatives on Monday, Akpabio had accused members of the National Assembly of being beneficiaries of most of the contracts from NDDC.

On Tuesday, the House issued an ultimatum to the minister to publish the names of lawmakers whom he claimed had received contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission.
