The House of Representatives has summoned the Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun and her predecessor, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, over alleged abuse and breach of the Procurement Act, 2007.
The house’s Committee on Public Procurement, which invited the duo, directed that they should appear before it on Tuesday.
Others expected to appear before the committee are former Head of Service (HoS), Steve Otunla and former Accountant-General to the Federation (AoGF), Jonah Otunla.
The committee in its investigative hearing on Monday in Abuja said that summoning the top officials was to ensure a proper investigation.
Chairman of the Committee, Rep. Oluwole Oke (Osun-PDP), who issued the order inviting the officials, read the Riot Act to all Ministers and Accounting Officers of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
He said, “the shortest way to Kuje prison is through breach of procurement laws.”
