Sanction Ngige – Reps tell President Buhari
Nigeria’s House of Representatives is urging the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to sanction the Minister of Labour, Employment and Productivity, Senator Chris Ngige, for not honouring the invite by the House Committee probing cases of human trafficking in the country.
The House Committee on Diaspora Affairs accused Ngige of withholding documents relevant for the investigation process as regards the trafficking of Nigerians to other countries.
The committee also recommended that the ministry’s Permanent Secretary, William Alo, should equally be sanctioned.
Similarly, the Chairman of the committee, Tolulope Akande-Sadipe, announced the completion of the Committee review of activities related to their function and represented a report which the House also approved.
The lawmakers summoned Ngige to appear before the House and provide all the required documents.
