The House of Representatives Committee on Science Research Institutions has established an ad-hoc committee to investigate the recent appointment of the Director Generals of the National Space Research Development Agency (NASRDA) and Raw Material Research and Development Council (RMRDC).

The ad-hoc committee, chaired by Hon. Akinlade Abiodun, is tasked with examining the appointment process and ensuring that it is fair, transparent, and in compliance with relevant laws and regulations.

This was revealed in a press statement issued by the chairman of the committee Hon. Prince Olaide Akinremi (Jagaban) on Tuesday.

The statement reads, “The investigation comes amid concerns over the qualifications and credentials of the appointed Director Generals, as well as potential conflicts of interest or biases in the appointment process.

“The ad-hoc committee has been mandated to invite the Honorable Minister of Innovation and Science and Technology, as well as the appointed Director Generals, to provide clarity on the matter.

“The investigation is seen as a move to ensure that the appointment process was merit-based and in the best interest of the agencies and the country.”
