The Speaker named the chairmen of the committees during plenary on Thursday.
Notably absent in the list is the Chairman of the Gbaja/Wase Campaign Director-General, Abdulmummin Jubrin.
Muktar Betara Aliyu (APC, Borno) is the new chairman of the appropriation committee, Tunji Ojo emerged as chair of the NDDC committee and James Faleke as the new chairman of Finance committee.
AbdulRasak Namdas is the new chairman of Committee on Army; the longest serving lawmaker, Nicholas Mutu is the chairman committee on Gas Resources; Oluwole Oke the new chairman of Committee on public accounts, while Land transport committee’s new chairman is Tajudeen Abbas.
The list appears not to favour some lawmakers as several of them gathered in front of the Speaker in what appears like a protest, republican newspaper reports.
