HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OPPOSE SPECIAL PRESIDENTIAL PROBE PANELS

The House of Representatives has opposed the setting up of special presidential investigative panels by the Federal Government to investigate various matters, saying that the development usurped the powers of existing anti-corruption agencies and the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

The House resolved to probe the operations of such panels, particularly the seeming duplication of the functions of anti-graft agencies such as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission.

The resolution followed a motion moved by the Chairman, House Committee on Public Accounts, Kingsley Chinda.
