Reps reject EFCC’s invitations to members


The House of Representatives has said it’s members will not appear before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) until the anti-graft agency routes it’s invitation through Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.

The EFCC had invited Minority Leader, Leo Ogor and twelve others in the first batch of those to be interrogated over the alleged  N284 billion padding of last year’s budget.

The House of Representatives said Ogor, would not appear before the  EFCC if that condition is not met.

But the commission is weighing its options on whether or not to accept the condition.

One of the options is to write a fresh letter to the House, asking the first batch of lawmakers to be interrogated to report.

It was however learnt that any member who fails to report to the EFCC might be arrested since representatives do not enjoy immunity.
