The speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas has announced the reshuffling of about five standing committees announced last month before the House went on vacation.
In the reshuffled leadership of the five standing committees, Mahmud Abdullahi (APC, Niger) takes charge of the House Committee on the Army which was left vacant during the last exercise.
Abdullahi was hitherto announced as the chairman of the House Committee on Hydrological Services and would be replaced by Pascal Agbodike (APGA, Anambra).
Agbodike was not assigned to any committee during the last exercise when APGA got only two vice chairmanship positions.
Denis Idahosa, who was assigned to the Committee on Digital and Electronic Banking, was moved to the House Committee on Healthcare Services as chairman to replace Tanko Sununo who had been appointed minister by the president.
Emmanuel Ukpong-Udo (YPP, Akwa Ibom) would take over from Idahosa as chairman of the House Committee on Electronic and Digital Banking from his former Committee on Institutional Reform.
Also, Bukar Talba (APC, Borno) has been moved over to the House Committee on Institutional Reforms from her earlier position as Chairman of the Committee on Women in Parliament.
The position of the chairman of the House Committee on Women in Parliament is however vacant.
The speaker said that “the appointments shall take immediate effect, while the legislative record shall be updated upon resumption of the House from recess.”
