The House of Representatives Ad Hoc Committee on Disposal of Public Property, summoned the Director-General of NIMASA, Bashir Jamoh; the Managing Director, Nigerian Ports Authority, Mallam Mohammed Koko; and the Comptroller General of Nigerian Customs, Adewale Adeniyi, to defend the auctioning of some public properties by the agencies.
The Chairman of the committee, who is also the House leader, Julius Ihonvbere, issued the summons at the resumed hearing of the panel.
The committee was investigating the illegal auctioning of government properties by various ministries and agencies.
Earlier, the panel rejected the presentation from the Nigerian Railway Corporation, which was represented by the liaison officer, Mr Pascal Nnolie, and that of the Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority, represented by the Managing Director, Babalola Olatunji.
Dismissing the submission from NRC, Ihonvbere said, the documents before him were those of 2015 and 2016 earlier submitted to the committee on public accounts of the House.
