JUST IN: Senate Sets Up Ad Hoc Committee To Investigate $3.5bn NNPC Subsidy Use

The Senate says it has set up an ad hoc committee to investigate the use to which the sum of $3.5bn alleged subsidy was put.

This was contained in a tweet on the verified Twitter handle of The Nigerian Senate, @NGRSenate.

“Senator Bassey Akpan cited Orders 43 and 95 and drew the attention of the Senate to the various emails and complaints from the general public on the unauthorised withdrawal of $3.5bn by NNPC from the NLNG account,” the Senate added

“I ask that the Senate Committee on Gas immediately investigate this matter,” Senator
Bassey Akpan said; while Senator Emmanuel Paulker urged that “The ad hoc committee that was set up should carry on with their work, while the Committee on Gas should also investigate the matter.”
