Reps threaten to order arrest of Okonjo-Iweala, Aig-Imokhuede

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala
For failing to appear before it twice, the House of Representatives Committee on Public Petitions, on Thursday, threatened to order the arrest of the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and the Group  Managing Director of Access Bank Plc, Mr. Aigboje Aig-Imokhuede.
The committee, which is headed by Mr. Uzo Azubuike, said the two were needed to help resolve the N20bn fuel subsidy dispute between the Chairman of Coscharis Motors Limited, Mr. Cosmas Maduka, and the Managing Director of Capital Oil, Mr. Ifeanyi Uba.
The committee had postponed sitting last week to Thursday due to the absence of the minister and the Access Bank GMD.
But on Thursday, Azubuike was angry that they “shunned” the committee again.
He said though the committee was aware that the minister’s mother was kidnapped, it was not a reason to ignore the invitation.
Azubuike added that since the invitation was for the Ministry of Finance, the minister ought to have mandated a representative to present the position of ministry.
He warned that if a representative was not sent to the next sitting of the committee, a warrant of arrest would be issued in the name of the ministry.
It will be recalled that Aig-Imokhuede headed the Presidential Committee on Verification of Subsidy Payments.
