NDDC Contracts: Publish Names of Lawmakers NDDC Awarded Contracts within 48hrs or Face Consequences – House Speaker

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, has given the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, 48 hours to publish the names of lawmakers who were awarded contracts by Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) as well as the details of the contracts.

Should the minister fail to publish the names, the speaker said the House will employ the full wrath of the law to ensure he does so.

The Speaker issued the ultimatum during plenary on Tuesday, a day after the minister claimed that most of the contracts awarded by the NDDC were awarded to lawmakers.

A bold claim

During a testy appearance before the House Committee on NDDC on Monday, Senator Akpabio claimed that the lawmakers were “the greatest beneficiaries” of NDDC contracts.

Asked how the lawmakers benefitted, he said, “I just told you that we have records to show that most of the contracts in the NDDC are given out to members of the National Assembly.”

The Speaker who accused Senator Akpabio of pulling the oldest trick in the book with the claims believes the minister owes it the country to publish the names in the interest of transparency.

On Thursday, Mr Gbajabiamila had to intervene in the sitting of the committee after the Acting Managing Director of the NDDC, Daniel Pondei, slumped while being grilled about spendings by the commission.

He had called for calm and assured all those invited to appear before the committee that the invites were in the interest of the country and not targetted at anyone.

Stressing that it was a fact-finding mission, the Speaker wished Pondei quick recovery and urged the committee to proceed quickly and wrap up its investigations, stressing that Pondei had already submitted documents to them.

While issuing an ultimatum to Senator Akpabio about his claims, Mr Gbajabiamila, however, said the committee had the right to invite Pondei again should it feel the need to do so. Channels TV

    A couple of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great
    in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

  6. each time i used to read smaller articles that as well clear their
    motive, and that is also happening with this post which I am reading now.

  7. Possibly you planned the whole time for the post to be
    about not letting doubts stop you from following your dreams and quitting
    your day task, however readers scanning subheads will not understand that.

    Blog writers overlook this all the time, but it’s easy to fix
    as soon as you understand it. If you separate your subheads

    advising readers what to do.|
    However then the 4th subhead unexpectedly changes
    the format and breaks the circulation. It doesn’t start with a verb and it’s a lot longer than the
    others. This disparity may appear relatively innocent, however it’s distracting
    to readers. Let’s face it, readers today are info-holics.
    We all are. So tired old suggestions isn’t going to cut it.|
    My advice? Note your bottom lines and see if you can include a
    special perspective, experience, or twist to them.
    Something readers aren’t expecting. What belief systems
    have you discovered to challenge? What do you understand that many people don’t?
    How can you shed brand-new light on an old issue?
    What methods do you use that others won’t understand about?
    You don’t wish to overdo it just for the sake of including shock value.|
    However regurgitating old guidance does not challenge you as a writer, nor does it inform
    your audience. So put your readers a little espresso for their info-hangover by providing the unanticipated.

    You’ll even find out how the pros fine-tune and polish their posts
    once they’re completed writing them.|
    Let’s dive in. Would like to know among the biggest mistakes blog
    writers make? Writing blog site posts prior to the headlines (aka
    post titles). Without a headline, they have no roadmap to follow.

    And so their post enters several directions, leaving readers feeling lightheaded,
    baffled and disoriented. And then they try
    to create a heading that embraces all that madness.|
    Your headline will be your map, your composing navigation system, letting
    you understand which literary roads to select and which to avoid so that readers reach
    the designated location as easily and effectively as possible.
    Want your article to get opened? Then your heading must guarantee
    readers the very response to whatever is torturing
    them.|
    Your heading ought to not assure them a trip to the moon and back readers
    are way too quick for such shenanigans. Keep the benefit particular
    and narrow, and readers will feel compelled to click
    and get the option to what’s badgering them.

    How do you learn what’s bugging your readers? How do you know which of your
    numerous post concepts should be pursued?
    Research study: Evaluation comments on your posts and on posts of other sites in your niche.|
    Use tools like BuzzSumo to learn what the most popular posts in your specific niche are (which provides insight into your target readers’ requirements).
    Read the evaluations of books in your specific niche on Amazon (you’ll find a gold mine
    of feedback to explore). You have one responsibility as a blogger yup, simply one.|
    The better you understand them, the much better you serve.
    Before you know it, you’ll know them so totally they’ll
    seem like you’re reading their minds, and your headlines will show that.
    Let’s say you remain in the self-improvement space and
    you composed the headline listed below: How to Produce
    a Remarkable Life This headline is so broad it’s unlikely to draw
    readers in.

  12. Perhaps you planned all along for the post to be about not letting doubts stop you from
    following your dreams and stopping your day job,
    but readers scanning subheads will not comprehend that.
    They will merely feel baffled. If you are listing various “ways,” “steps,” “techniques,”
    “signs,” etc., to achieve what the headline of the post guarantees,
    keep the format consistent.|
    Blog writers overlook this all the time, however it’s simple to repair once you know it.

    If you separate your subheads from the post and list them back to back, you can see if any stray from the course.

    Say your post is called “12 Ways to Treat Insomnia” and you have a subhead for each of the 12 methods.|
    Let’s state your very first couple of subheads read as follows:
    Workout Every Early Morning Prevent Caffeine Like the Plague Awaken at the Very Same Time Everyday There
    is Absolutely Nothing More Sleep-Inducing Than Nighttime Meditation Something there feel a little off?
    The very first 3 subheads start with an action verb
    advising readers what to do.|
    However then the 4th subhead unexpectedly alters the format and breaks the circulation. It doesn’t start with a verb and it’s a lot longer than the others.
    This inconsistency may appear relatively innocent, but it’s sidetracking to readers.

    Let’s face it, readers today are info-holics. We all are.
    So tired old advice isn’t going to suffice.|
    My guidance? Note your main points and see if you can include a distinct perspective, experience,
    or twist to them. Something readers aren’t anticipating.

    What belief systems have you learned to challenge? What do you know that many people do not?
    How can you shed new light on an old issue? What methods do you utilize that others won’t understand about?
    You do not desire to overdo it simply for the sake of including shock worth.|
    But spitting up old guidance doesn’t challenge you as a writer, nor does it inform
    your audience. So put your readers a little espresso for their info-hangover by
    delivering the unforeseen. Countless articles have actually been blogged about blogging, but the number of have actually called
    you out for being dumb or told you to replace your pals ?!
    Jon does simply that by knocking you over the head with some hard truth
    bombs about what it takes to make it as a blogger.

  13. Magnificent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you are just extremely wonderful.
    I really like what you’ve acquired here, really like what you are stating and the way in which you say it.
