Reps summon NEMA DG over N13bn expenditure
A House of Representatives panel yesterday summoned the Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Mustapha Maihaja, over an expenditure of over N13 billion in one month.
The committee on NEMA, chaired by Jibrin Santumari (APC, Borno) said Maihaja should appear before it tomorrow, after he evaded three earlier invitations.
he committee said failure by Maihaja to appear, it would invoke its constitutional powers to issue a warrant of arrest against him.
The lawmakers said the NEMA DG, who assumed office in April, has spent the N13bn in just one month and that he must offer concrete explanations for his actions.
